Data Visualisation Research


Hey everyone in cyberspace,

i have been so lazy lately and havent been blogging much which is very strange, because i am a blogaholic!!! schools been getting crazy!!! busy. i have been focusing most of my time around making some installation art.

At school i have been trying to make a 3dimensional space which will show what my blog would look like. Crazy, i know! and im only in my 1st year on uni so everyone thinks im crazy for taking on such an epic task and doing an installation!!

But…. i have decided to make a data visualisation of the traffic flow through my blog and out through links people have clicked on that day and links clickable from those sites.

If you are unsure what data visualisation is, you will be amazed everything is done with coding, its pretty much making data look pretty, check out some cool data visualisations i have found!!

Its my new crazed obsession and i cant wait to try it out when i fin school in november!!!!

White Stripes – Death Letter


All I could think of when posting this video is all the words that come to my head when i hear this magnitude of epic sound. It turned into a poem:

The Soul of a passionate pain,

a splendid brain,

Got the dirt sick blues

and it hurts like Red, FUCKING RAIN!!!

10 Amazing & Unique Websites and Portfolios


Planning a portfolio website, or any website for that matter is a challenge. Like our teacher says a website is like a iceberg, you only see the top which is above water. Under water is where 70% of the iceberg, and with that is 70% of the iceberg is the  planning and developing of the website.

I have been searching the world wide web for centuries to find some unique and different websites and portfolios, for hours no luck. But then i finally stumbled upon these beauties. I have been trying to find a site i could get inspiration from and loosely base my own portfolio site around.

These are my unique website finalists:

CocoRosie!!


Today my tutor told me about this band CocoRosie. He told me to look them up, he said “they have got the most beautiful voices”. I was expecting a average and not too weird band. What I got was something totally different and a BEAUTIFUL SHOCK.

These two girls blew me away with their amazing voices and style. Their style, their style was out of this world. Some may class them as weird but I class them as pure genius.

Just Watch!!!!! Their strangely amazing!! I will also be posting them on my music page too so keep an eye out!

Animate my world with street style


Blu and David Ellis = Street Art Genius of gigantic proportions. If ever there was such a huge task and making and creating street art this video would be up there. The things people do amaze me so much!! and these two guys AMAZE THE FCUK out of me!!!

To go through such an effort and make this video so we can sit here watching it is awesome.

Thanks guys!!! enough of my ranting and praise, let us enjoy the video.

Ravenskar or Viet-My Bui – Inspiration of the day


All i can say about this girl is WOW. How can so much talent come out of one little lady, and talent she does have. Talent with a capital “T”

This little lady i am talking about is Viet-My Bui A.K.A Ravenskar. She is a 22 yr old Vietnamese woman who rocks my world. These pictures below are everything i want to and wish i could paint. I have recently done a painting class at uni and realised i love it. This is the kind of level of art i want to be pumping out. but i am a long way away from this yet!!! A LONG WAY!! but ill get there :).

Its girls like this drawing kick ass paintings and pictures with attitude and style who aspire me to dream bigger, go further, feel uncomfortable, as i push through my comfort zone and try something that scares the hell out of me. That something is TRYING NEW THINGS. I also highly recommend her blog. 🙂

Today Ravenskar you are my inspiration and my motivator. I hope she becomes your inspiration too.
