Hope is a visual poem about the journey of a thought, with a scale transposition to the gigantic/cosmic, it tries to represent the brain’s complexity and the birth of a feeling, as a charged particle travels through neuron and gives the power to create information and emotion.

It has been made using real shots of macroscopic chemical reactions, recorded with a 8k camera, with a 100mm macro lens, that turn the shooting into a microscopic observation and permitting to avoid CGI most of the time. Using this process allowed me to conceive the most complex figures possible, without getting rid of the natural beauty, and the extreme complexity of the neuronal system that I tried to represent.

We linked the idea of hope, in a personal, human sense, to the journey every ion has to make across the neuronal membrane – an infinitesimal part of the most complex machine, with each particle striving for it’s destination, driven by the charge gradient across the membrane. It’s not biologically accurate of course, it’s an epic-scale dramatisation of a fundamental process that is making you aware of reading this right now…

  1. Je suis d’accord avec Pyrros, montrer une photo que l’on a faite que l’on trouve originale, ce n’est pas se lancer des fleurs, c’est étayer son propos. Dire pourquoi elle est originale pour soi aurait pu être intéressant !

  2. No matter what cms you are using, it should work as font-face renders in client-side. I strongly suggest you to read documentation from google webfonts before you may proceed to toast your template engine. If you want to test on your local testing environment, please make sure you have internet connection because it will pull font file from google server, not from your localhost.

  3. Je réagis par rapport au #fail #disney –> Attention quand même que Disney != Disneyland qui est géré totalement à partC’est un peu comme si on disait que Sony Music c’est de la merde parce que le PSN est down depuis trois semaines Sinon, je n’ai vu aucune image similaire dans les deux vidéos que tu as postées. Du coup, j’ai pas bien compris le coup de gueule…

  4. “because the label only shipped like 18,000 copies” LMAO Lying ass nigga. Grow pair of balls and admit your music is garbage and it’s so bad to the point that no one even wants to buy it. Personally Soulja Boi might be a cool cat but musically dude is garbage and should just stop making music.

  6. Marc – Okay, I agree, other other solution would be zero polticial donations of any sort. I went with the public lobby option because that could happen now if an entitiy wanted it to happen. To have zero donations would take years and years.About the funds. I would say the public has more more money than any corporation. In other words, the population are a far bigger “corporation” than any business. They have access to many times more cash than Apple for example.

  8. I thought you weren’t enjoyin’ this one? Surprised you finished it. As much as i’d love to se you draw the old-school X-men, i wouldn’t want you to do it unless you were havin’ fun with it.Love this by the way. I love how blocky you drew him, instead of some muscle-y guy with lines on his skin.

  9. 13 agosto 2008 Valentina: certo il ragazzo fidanzato è ancora peggio, era sottointeso Anonimo: nessuno ha detto che tutte le ragazze italiane sono emancipate (se no che senso avrebbe questa discussione?). Tuttavia non ho capito proprio il tuo esempio di discoteca a Napoli: ci sono poche ragazze e neanche tanto belle, quindi impossibile provarci…cosa c’entra questo con l’emanciapazione?

  10. 30kwh/day isn’t all that much. At today’s ~$0.15/kwh, that’s only about a $135 power bill for the month.  I’m trying my best to get power consumption that low. Even with no heat/ac on, our house still consumes ~35kwh/day, and that’s with low water heater setting, 3 insulation blankets on it, all cf bulbs, etc, and it’s smaller than 2000 sq ft.

  12. That is definitely what repairs are for and when it can no extended be repaired then it is actually time to make a fresh 1. I sat the very last month and watched friends get started machining their new recast Mercer transmission case. I’m glad they were using the Marmon and I really hope they keep use it !

  13. It’s that stopping when you’re physically full part that I struggle with- like I’ll never have the opportunity to eat again. I don’t know why I do that, but I really like your mindset around it. Will try it myself and see what happens!!

  15. Great article and so true. I’ve only written one cookbook so far, and it was indeed a collaboration– editors, copy editors, recipe testers, photographers, the list goes on and on. It really does take a village…and working with “good people” is everything.

  16. Oh my gosh…Your blog is sooo cute!! I absolutely hate Avo’s but WISH i loved them. I have way too many food texture issues!

  20. Kent only sees what Kent wants to see. Don’t confuse him with facts. It’s much easier to fall back on sour grapes, puerile accusations, and callow perceptions than to offer even the slightest pretense of objectivity.Kent is a lost cause, a bitter, defeated IU apologist without a modicum of respect for what he writes. I should know: I’m his frontal lobe.

  21. Many thanks for creating the effort to talk about this, I feel strongly about this and love studying a great deal more on this topic. If feasible, as you gain expertise, would you mind updating your website with a great deal more info? It’s really beneficial for me.

  22. Quick Harley! Monsanto is destroying the planet. If we don’t get more fake boobs and videos of flying cats on youtube soon the environment will be destroyed! Seriously Harley, what part of threatening people and their families makes this world a better place? The problems in this world all stem from people being greedy and manipulative, and guess what? You’re as guilty as any Monsanto executive.

  23. Do you want to see asian on a TV show or a lot movies – Then go to an Asian Country.Do you want to see hispanic on a TV show or a lot movies – Go to Mexico Or south America.Do you want to see black on a TV show or a lot movies – Go to Africa.

  24. ich finde, allein der weiße nagellack sieht schon total schön aus 🙂 hab zwar auch welchen, aber das sieht seltsam aus. mit diesen foliendingern sieht es aber auch schön aus und so nah wie die kamera werden die meisten menschen deinen nägeln wohl kaum kommen, also fällt es nicht so auf, wenn es ein bisschen unsauber ist!

  28. Can someone please tell us what language those Scandinavians speak when they get together? Some sort to Scandinavian neutral inter-language? Or, each person speaks his own language, and all the others understand it, even if not a speaker of that language? Use English as necessary?

  29. Bela –Unlike in the EU where only YOU and the Brussels Journals are the ONLY oppositionNot true. There are many opposition blogs, news sites, and forums in Europe. I’ll name just a few: Snaphanen, Jussi Halla-aho, Uriasposten, SIOE, FOMI, Het Vrije Folk, GeenStijl, F. Desouche, Lisistrata, La Yijad en Eurabia, Islam in Europe, Politically Incorrect, Europe News, Tundra Tabloids, and Not to mention the British ones. There are plenty of others, many of them writing under their real names.

  30. Olen samaa mieltä, nimimerkki mm: En usko kellään olevan tarvetta esittää muuta kuin yhtä henkilöä. Viestin voi kuitata laittamalla nimimerkin loppuun, ei tarvitse rekisteröityä. Muistakaa edelleen, että ollaan netissä. Kalakaan ei huomaa olevansa vedessä.Ja kuten olette huomanneet, moderointia en harrasta. Olen poistanut tähän mennessä vain pari “tyhjää” viestiä, siis sellaista, joissa ei lukenut mitään.

  31. You…are…my…hero!!! I cant believe something like this exists on the internet! Its so true, so honest, and more than that you dont sound like an idiot! Finally, someone who knows how to talk about a subject without sounding like a kid who didnt get that bike he wanted for Christmas.

  32. I don’t get how the 47% don’t pay taxes comment should offend anyone. That’s the wrong feeling. Really it’s an amazing statistic and the feeling Americans should have when they hear it is shame. The idea that so many people don’t pay taxes, and a similar amount actually accept government assistance as their primary income is frightening.Americans should be ashamed of those statistics, not offended when they hear them.

  33. I am a mother of adoption loss (1990) and cost has nothing to do with why I don’t attend these conferences. I am not at a place and may never be that I can stomach being at a conference with baby brokers and their paying customers, giving spiels about how wonderful adoption is and how god wills it all. Perhaps those who offer an opinion of why many of us are not there (and I am not speaking of you, Suz) can get off their high horses and realize not all of us want to be in their company. Just my 2 cents…

  34. yes! So here we are in the entryway/stairwell at the back of the school, and we kissed!! I can still remember the rush of emotions that went thru me! Of course I was madly in love! Then the unthinkable happened…… mom arrived early to pick up my friends and I and SHE WALKED RIGHT IN—-MID-KISS!!!!!OMG! I WANTED TO DIE FROM EMBARRASSMENT!!!! We went "together" for a while. I can still remember those blue eyes…….nancyecdavis AT bellsouth DOT net

  35. WHAT A TWAT … if i’m talking to someone and they mention the words “summer solstice,” i will stomp the fucking shit out of them. if anyone wants to live in south florida for more than five minutes without a/c, they deserve the grisly, heat stroke-y death they will eventually recieve.

  36. Small countries have this Jewish mother style thing of telling themselves how successful the collective is. Even some big countries, come to think of it. Indian newspapers are full of the success stories of “Non resident Indians”.. Israeli newspapers feature Jewish wealth and fame and success like it is shared by everyone. Madoff was a source of pride for so long. There is something very parochial about it, I always think.

  37. WOW!!!!! ………… A big big thank you to you Amanda, and of course to your partner in crime the obliging Jemma Jey!!

  39. She is probably suggesting not to pump because your baby needs the colustrum, and its important to continue to try to get her to latch. It is frustrating but just try to be patient. It does hurt when she first latches, but once shes on the pain should subside. it make take a minute or so. Get some ****** cream to soothe your dry *******. Have you supplemented formula? I you need to mae sure to keep up the pumping so you get your supply in.


  41. All Kurt B. gets a lot more action then you’ll ever get. You can’t even come close to slinging the quality and quantity of poon that Kurt gets. As I’m typing this he’s out there banging some hot broad in the back seat of a 2009 Audi A4 Avant Quattro (w/ S-line Sport Package).
