Rome Day 2 - Villa Borghese

On the second day of my trip I went to Villa Borghese, a two-story villa housing Galleria Borghese. I went for the Caravaggio paintings, but instead was blown away by the Bernini sculptures.

Siggraph Computer Animation Festival

This year I was fortunate enough to attend Siggraph in Los Angeles (muchos gracias CCP!), and one of the pleasant surprises was the Computer Animation Festival. Here's my personal selection of favorites... (Edit: uhm, ok, make sure to hit HD on the vimeo vids, embedding HD doesn't work..?).

Eve - Semi finals

How's the Create A SpaceShip contest doing? Extremely good, it turns out... Semi-finalists are selected and they look freakin' cool. I especially like the molten ship, Gaudi style.

Reykjavik

Reykjavik is really tiny, so if you walk away from its main axis for like 2 minutes, you end up on a nice path that traces around the peninsula.

Munich III - Schloss Nymphenburg

Just a "summer residence" for the various kings and dudes in charge of Bavaria. Of course I immediately had to think of the movie Kamikaze girls due to its top heavy Rococo style; I normally don't like anything that comes with too much embellishments, however in this setting it worked beautifully. I guess it works when done properly, and not at all in kitschy knockoffs?

Vancouver Sunset

Last one, to wrap it up! That stone thing is some indian symbol that's also used as a logo for the upcoming Winter Olympics, so you'll be seeing a lot of that (if you care for that stuff).

Assembly 2009

Timothy Farrar collected a nice list of videos from Assembly 2009. Which reminds me, it's already been 15 years since I took the plane to Finland just to sit in a stadium looking at demo's for two days. Dammit, I feel old :\
