New Product Videos

I’m putting together a series of product videos… one for each of the 10 or so different calipers that I make.

They will all look kindof the same… they’re mainly for embedding in shop pages and so on. Because they’ll all look kindof the same, I’ve made a separate youtube channel so subscribers don’t lose their minds with boredom.

Anyhoo… I’m quite pleased with the first one. At the very least, it’s got quite good music… just me on a guitar playing through echoes and reverbs etc.

While I was doing this, I revisited this image I made by averaging/mirroring a couple of others. It’s probably the most successful (in terms of proliferation over the web) thing that I’ve ever done.

In the last month or so I’ve been trying to re-write (ie: make readable) this peer-reviewed article about the golden mean and facial proportions. It’s quite tricky though, because the “rules” never really line up to real faces properly. They’re always a bit out… sometimes a lot out. I guess nobody is perfect, but it does make it really hard when you’re trying to show the golden-ratio in a real-world example.

So it occurred to me that what I should do is find the face-averaging software again and average a LOT of faces… which when I tried it, tends to give this thing that looks like a beatific androgynous Buddhist monk… and then use that as the starting point for seeing where the golden-ratio applies. I was tinkering with this software a while back. Before the caliper business started. I find it incredibly interesting.

Wake me up when it’s 2020

Golden Mean Caliper Comparison Chart

I thought it might be useful for people to be able to compare all the calipers on the one page, so I made a comparison chart.

Demo of Golden Ratio in Artistic Composition (fairly disorganised)

Over the years, I've built up a collection of Golden Ratio Calipers... and I decided it might be quite useful for people if I made a video comparing them. Some of them are really good - some terrible. So I set up my camera... and found that my video-space looked a bit bare... needed a painting. So I decided to…

Why The Golden Ratio Works For Flowers

Fairly amazing video going into the maths of why flowers (and pine-cones, relative leaf positions etc) are so often based fibonacci numbers. And it's fairly amazing because I actually understood it. It's been a loooong time since I tangled with quadratic equations, but (on the 2nd watch) this did actually make sense to me. I always thought that with…

Limited Run : Neon Colour Range I was tinkering with these colours a while back... and then someone with exceptional taste and style made a big order for a whole range of coloured ones... and every one was all "ooh!!!" So I made some for the local art gallery - and they all sold as well. So I made enquiries about getting a lot more…
