Connor Bell is a native of Novia Scota who moved to Montreal for big city culture. He works as a programmer mainly in Unity and iOs. He said that he realized that as he was getting his computer science degree that he wanted to apply what he was learning to art. His elegant and beautiful motion creations are evidence of his success in doing that. About this he said “ I have a lot of friends who are more traditional fine artists who I also learn a lot from in terms of artistic intent and meaning and have been slowly starting to apply that to my work “. It seems that there are a lot of creators like Connor Bell around these days who combine science and art. I do not think it is too much of a stretch to compare what these artists/scientists do to someone like Leonardo da Vinci - someone was equally passionate about both science and art and in fact, saw them as basically the same thing.

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.
