Thomas Hooper:  The Joy of Ray Marching

Thomas Hooper is from Bristol and lives in London working as a web designer and developer.  He has no art training but did have an interest in geometric sculpture and polyhedra, which inspired him to find ways to create them digitally and efficiently.  He wound up using ‘ray marching signed distance functions’ a technique about which he says is ‘so beautiful and refined it gives me endless joy to work with.’  I will add that it enables him to create beautiful artwork as well, as evidenced by these gifs,

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.
