I was asked to create an abstract landscape of microchips and circuits for the cover of Nature, and to give it some animated magic for the online component. The article, about Moore’s Law (the principle at technology will decrease in size and increase in efficiency at a steady rate) was very interesting, too. I never thought about how so much information can be packed into microscopic spaces, or how we could ever reach a point when chips don’t get smaller or cheaper. I really enjoyed working on this piece! It’s fun to just focus on the interplay of shapes in space, and animating little sparks is extremely satisfying.
So hiya, yeah I’ve been inactive again for a while ^ ^; But reasons! Last weekend, I went to visit my lovely friend @reallyquantum, pictured with me in the last photo. It’d been a while since I visited anyone so it was a real treat, we had a really girly weekend shopping at malls, went to SPX, saw Ghostbusters again, her mom was amazing, and also the highlight: my first Renaissance Fest!
I threw together an outfit from stuff I had at home and rushed to make myself a matching elf crown and necklace thingy (I made reallyquantum’s back in college) which turned out a bit fancier than expected >.>; I got a lot of compliments which made me really happy, since I haven’t worn anything cool to a con-like event in a really long time ^ ^ The back, not pictured, is the fanciest part so I’ll try to post pictures of that later.
there’s something extremely satisfying about buying books. it’s like ferociously scratching an itch you’ve had for ages, having this relief that’s just indescribable. and then you check your bank account. that’s looking down and realizing you’ve got blood everywhere. moral of the story don’t scratch the fucking itch
