anoptic’s inscrutable machines

anoptic creates geometric gifs that are beautiful but at the same time feel old fashioned, like something Tesla would have created if he had a computer in 1900.  While anoptic prefers to remain anonymous, he or she did make an interesting comment about animated gifs:  “The art of the gif is in the loop. The single idea repeated over and over - both unending and unchanging at the same time. A glimpse at processes normally invisible, like peering into the workings of the inscrutable machine. Done well, it’s mesmerizing.”  Exactly.

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.
