I've made a couple of desktop wallpapers for you to use. I'll be making more and posting them on my wallpapers page. Just right click (or click-hold on Macs) and select "Save Target As" to download.

director's lounge - berlin

I have a couple of new animations that will be shown at the Director's Lounge in Berlin, Feb 12-13. The "Forming Motion" part of the festival was curated by my friend Kim Collmer--it's a very strong line up of short films and animations.

My contributions:
Party Party Chisai-san, original score by Matt Corwine
In Situ, compositions by Briggan Krauss

Matt and Briggan are both uniquely talented performers and composers.

From NASA's site: "Using a simple police scanner or ham radio, you can listen to a disembodied spacesuit circling Earth."

They'll dump the suit overboard of the International Space Station on Feb 3, and the batteries broadcasting a 30-second message in multiple languages will likely last a few days. You can use NASA's
J-Pass utility to find out when to tune in--look for the International Space Station, which will share a similar orbit to the suit.

A cosmic numbers station!

Feb 6 update: I'm still looking for recordings of the transmission, but you can look here for updates, and at suitsat.org for reports of all transmissions worldwide.

Feb 7 update: Here are some recordings from the suit!
