multi view

anonymous asked:

Through you I have learnt so much, about fearlessness, openness, love, and most of all about the person. You've taught me to look at a person not through the reductionist lens that I used to use, but through a multi-faced view, accepting that people can be both one thing and the sum of their separate parts, which produces two completely different people, and makes them intrinsically them. It's just one of the reasons you inspire me, but it is perhaps the one that has helped me the most.

i just got tingles all over my arms

this was so fucking incredible wow

thank you so much you put the biggest smile on my face & so much warmth in my heart <3

The Dose Makes the Poison

The phrase “healing herbs” as it’s generally used in advertising really bothers me.  This is mostly because it’s got that central advertorial language problem: it could mean everything or nothing.  But that’s a little more crucial than usual in this context.

Look, I write about herbal medicine and magic for (part of) a living.  I make salves, I make soaps, I use tisanes instead of cough syrups.  I wildcraft.  I have a pretty multi-point view of the fact that healing comes from skill; the plants are tools.  Overuse of the concept of “healing herbs” contributes to an over-simplified “plants good; chemicals bad” mindset that can and does hurt people.

Furthermore, this meaningless use of “healing” as a concept contributes to the idea of health as a monolithic thing that’s the same for everyone and has one definition – an idea that’s undiscerning, ableist, and laughably untrue.  

Users of traditional medicine systems are looked to as an alternative to the industrialized, model-organism methods of “modern” medicine.  Users of traditional medicine systems thus have a basic responsibility to understand that “healing” is different for different bodies – and to know that the virtue that lies in the plants is brought out by the minds and hands of the knowledgeable, not inherently present in any commercial product made from “six healing herbs!!!”

By the usual definition, foxglove is a “healing herb.”  Digitalis will still kill you.

I’m not saying, “don’t use herbs or herbal supplements.”  I’m saying, “be suspicious of anyone who overuses the concept of ‘healing herbs’ to make you buy and use things.”  Ask what things do.  Be aware that “healing” is not an answer to that question.

Week 2 Multi View Orthogonal Projection

Part 1 The Trophy

This exercise is hard to begin with. To apply 3D object on to 2D drawing with accurate dimension is a little bit disassociated for me. It is difficult to imagine the front, top, and side view of the object with accurate lines and shape. I did two time of this drawing because the first attempt was wrong (by joining the side lines at the bottom to the side of the triangular prism in the front view drawing), however, after tutor explained I have accurately draw the all the projections out. I enjoyed the exercise since it let me practice how to communicate a 3D drawing on to 2D formate the annoying part is my lack of attention to details. If I have time I would like to produce a more precise lines and clearer labelling of the measurements. The key things I learnt from this exercise are the auxiliary projection of the object as well as knowing only few measurements on a shape to project other measurements without actually measuring the object. The auxiliary view was clearly explained by Rob and Will. It is important to go through text book for references, if it is still unclear it is better to ask tutor for help.

Part 2 The Stapler

This exercise involves self measurement. I realise I made a detail measurement at the beginning, but some of the parts I measure wasn’t even useful because I can project it from another view of the object. The hardest part in the stapler to draw is the curve appears at the top of it. After going through the text book and search on the internet, I finally made use of the flexible curve ruler. Posts from other students further confident my way of drawing this curve. If I have time again I would also like to include another bottom view of the stapler which also include on other student’s post.

Blog Post 3: Multi-View Orthogonal Projection.

This week the studio involved the production of two drawings. An accurate orthographic drawing of a trophy based off limited dimensions provided from a rough sketch, as well as an orthographic drawing of a household object – for this I chose my phone charger.

Pre-Planning The Trophy Drawing.


A strong point with this activity was the introduction of a drawing board into my workflow which sped up the setting up of my page and improved by ability to create accurate line work, square to the edges of my page.

Making Use Of The Drawing Board.


The weakest point of this activity was my utilisation of the ink pens. Being introduced to Australian Standards based practices regarding line thickness through this weeks reading I attempted to try the thicker pen options to quite poor results. This will definitely need to be worked on in future studio tasks.

Sloppy Ink Pen Work.


I enjoyed the collaboration that was had between fellow students around me during the studio lesson, it was extremely satisfying to work together on a solution to the problems regarding finding the correct measurements for the trophy.

I didn’t enjoy having to use the ink pens, personally I feel like they decrease the level of accuracy in a drawing compared to the standard thin pencil lines, but it will definitely be something I try to adapt to.

If I had my time again I would definitely try and use my time within the studio session more effectively. I had to complete the majority of the second part of the activity with my own household object in my own time.

Household Object Activity at Home.


Some of the key lessons and insights I learnt during this process included more familiarity with my equipment – for example,  the orange circle templates actually have arrow templates which will allow for perfect consistent arrows in dimensioning according to Australian Standards. (although I only had the chance to use it for a few, I only discovered it nearing the end of the activity :/ ). Furthermore the refresh on Australian drawing standards was quite useful as I had forgotten a lot of it since I had last done it.

Completed Trophy.

Week2 - Multi View Orthogonal Projection

Drawing 1: Trophy  

[Top, front, side and auxiliary views]

Top and front views were relatively easy to draw. I started with the base in front view to attain the circle directly above it, then extended down the points of the inscribed equilateral triangle to mark the outline of the glass part in front view. I had lots of fun in getting measurements by utilising different views, as it required picturing the object in mind and by doing this, a sense of unification was created. 0.8 ink pen was used for the outline of object, 0.4 for lines inside and 0.2 for dimensions.

However I stumbled across some difficulties too. For the side view, in my first go I had the slope the wrong way and mistakenly centred the glass part. Later I learnt that the top and side view should appear as if a mirror was put between them and the front view. Moreover, at the time I couldn’t think of a way to mark the distance between the edges of base and glass part using other graphs, but to measure it off the top view. Similarly for the front triangle, I had to calculate its height mathematically.

For the auxiliary view, I was initially very confused about how to construct it. Thank you to Rob and Will whose explanation helped me out. The auxiliary view is viewing the triangle cross-section perpendicularly and provides its true dimensions. The length of the slope in side view was the height of the triangle, and imagining flipping the triangle flat onto the page, its base length remained unchanged as 52mm and the other two sides were just constructed using compass and ruler.

Next time I will try to improve the neatness of my drawing especially the dimensions.



Drawing 2: Hole puncher 

[Top, front and side views]

The structure of the hole puncher was a bit more complicated than the trophy. It took me a while to get the angles and radius of curves as accurate as possible, because the edges of the hole puncher was not very clear. For the handle in side view, I used the flexible curve to obtain similar shape.

I had some trouble when outlining due to blotching of ink. There were different radius and many dimensions involved so I was not sure about how to present them in a concise manner, and the final drawing appeared to be overcrowded.

For the future I will be more careful with the ink pen especially the thicker ones, and will consider more about the layout of dimensions.

Overall I learnt a lot from this exercise and enjoyed the process of overcoming difficulties. Thank you to those who have helped me along the way!

Week 2 - Multi View Orthogonal Projection

The first part of this week’s exercises was to construct an orthogonal drawing of a trophy. For me this was fairly simple and fun, as i had studied Engineering Study in high school, which had granted me an in-depth understanding on Engineering drawing. With that being said however, auxiliary view still confuse me at time, as I couldn’t find all the needed component to construct an auxiliary view. And this time was the same, though I mange to complete this drawing in the end, just took me a long time. 

For the second part of this exercises, we were to construct an orthogonal drawing of a suitable object of our choice. My drawing was based on my phone’s charging dock, which have a fairly simple shape. This part was pretty easy to, due to the nature and shape of my chosen object. But I still encounter the problem I experienced during last week’s exercises, which is the blotching of ink. 

Overall, I found this exercises important and fun, as this acted as an refresher and I do enjoy this type of exercises.

Week2
This week we had finished a multi view orthogonal projection. The difference between last week and this week is different views. Firstly, I drew the top of it and it took me 5 minutes to finish. And then, the front and side are a little bit hard because it needs good imagination about the orthographic drawing. I made a mistake that the measurement is incorrect when I drew the structure of the glass triangular prism. All the views should be managed in the right position. So I tried many times to draw them and the gap of triangular prism is difficult to finish. In the whole process, I struggled and took a lot of time to finish them. So I really need to practice more. The second assignment is to make an orthogonal multi view drawing about my objects. I choose my bottle and draw three views.

Waka Flocka - “Hype (Flockmix)” (Video)

One of the more recent Waka Flocka remixes came in the form of Waka laying bars over Drake’s “Hype” from his multi-platinum-selling album Views. The remix now has a video, which features a visual of Waka spitting the rhymes layered over footage from old videos, concerts and TMZ clips. Nevertheless, the Bricksquad member’s remix matches the energy of “Hype,” which turned out to be one of the more vibrant song on Views. Watch the video for the Flockmix below.

Black Hole-Powered Jets Plow Into Galaxy : This composite image of a galaxy illustrates how the intense gravity of a supermassive black hole can be tapped to generate immense power. The image contains X-ray data from NASAs Chandra X-ray Observatory .

This multi-wavelength view shows 4C+29.30, a galaxy located some 850 million light years from Earth. The radio emission comes from two jets of particles that are speeding at millions of miles per hour away from a supermassive black hole at the center of the galaxy. The estimated mass of the black hole is about 100 million times the mass of our Sun. The ends of the jets show larger areas of radio emission located outside the galaxy.

The X-ray data show a different aspect of this galaxy, tracing the location of hot gas. The bright X-rays in the center of the image mark a pool of million-degree gas around the black hole. Some of this material may eventually be consumed by the black hole, and the magnetized, whirlpool of gas near the black hole could in turn, trigger more output to the radio jet.

Most of the low-energy X-rays from the vicinity of the black hole are absorbed by dust and gas, probably in the shape of a giant doughnut around the black hole. This doughnut, or torus blocks all the optical light produced near the black hole, so astronomers refer to this type of source as a hidden or buried black hole. The optical light seen in the image is from the stars in the galaxy.

I watched it, and it was surprisingly good.

As I mentioned long before, I kept my expectation as low as possible because I knew from past experiences that being made into anime is not always a good thing. There are Japanese mangas, novels, games that I loved the original work but really didn’t like anime, and it made me really upset that people remember those works as anime versions even though they were much better in original. Those bad cut scenes on Dual Destinies really didn’t help either. I was worried and nervous at the news rather than thrilled.

But the first episode was actually quite pleasant. Even though I wasn’t really fond of anime promo arts (I still really prefer those pachinko animations) the characters looked much better moving around in the video, and the voice acting was good too. There were many scenes for AA fans to notice and smile, like Phoenix’s old pink sweater in his room, Phoenix riding his bike and late to the court, all those familiar sprites and musics. The opening and ending were both full of symbols. Everything was nice and I came to think “Wow. This is not bad at all! Maybe I was way too skeptic until now.”

But I still want to wait and see how it goes, because another lesson I’ve learned from watching many shows is that I can’t really judge anything when I saw only one episode. Yes, I know I’m being too skeptic again, but Ace Attorney is really important to me and I want to be less hurt as possible when anime turns out to be bad.

Ace Attorney would be an unusual work for Japanese anime, because the whole story is based around the emotional relationships between characters yet it still lacks the canon romance. Seriously, ALL of the main characters, like Phoenix, Edgeworth, Mia, Maya, Gumshoe, Franziska, are canonically single throughout the whole series. This is quite rare for anime, where at least one of the characters usually develop romantic feelings and start dating during the show. Even though there are numerous shippers of various pairings thanks to all those subtext hints and messages, but that’s what they are: subtexts. Not canon. Almost canon. But never canon.

This anime has a burden to show those difficult relationships, not making them too bland, but not making them too obvious. Phoenix and Edgeworth must be friends and rivals as they are in canon, but also there must be enough delicious hints to satisfy the needs of hungry shippers. Countless people would be upset if they appear to be either “way too gay” or “not gay enough.” The same thing goes to narumayo and other AA pairings.

Again, I think the opening, the ending and the first episode had done a pretty good job. That famous “golden chain and balanced scale” scene can be interpreted as showing their complicated relationship as both rivals and partners for justice throughout the series, or the fact that Edgeworth can’t escape from Phoenix because they are destined to love each other. I’m really intrigued to wait and see where this goes. And since I really liked the first episode, now I can wait in more peace and less fear :-)
