The ‘Spirotechnics’ of Paul Wintz

Paul Wintz is an engineering student from Santa Barbara, California. Two years ago, he began his project which he calls ‘Spirotechnics’. He was learning how to program from Khan Academy, and was curious what would happen if you could put a Spirograph within another Spirograph. The answer he found was not disappointing. He realized there are an infinite amount of possible ‘Spirotechnics’ that can be created just by varying the radius and speed of each circle. Most settings create a tangled mess, but as you see, the results are beautiful when the parameters align correctly.

Stiff Pose Victorian Postmortem photography (140 Pics)

Postmortem photography or memento mori, the photographing of a deceased person, was a common practice in the 19th and early 20th centuries. The photographs were considered a keepsake to remember the dead. Child mortality was high during the Victorian era. For many children even a common sickness could be fatal. When a child or other family member died, families would often have a photograph taken before burial. Many times it was the first and last photograph they would ever possess of their loved one. Many postmortem photographs were close-ups of the face or shots of the full body. The deceased were usually depicted to appear as if they were in a deep sleep, or else arranged to appear more life-like. Children were often shown on a couch or in a crib, often posed with a favorite toy. It was not uncommon to photograph very young children with a family member, most frequently the mother. Adults were more commonly posed in chairs or even propped up on something.
