LIGHT'S UNEXPECTED EFFECTS

The Light of Storms


Light can do many things to us and for us. It can speak of memories, or it can provoke images in our minds of what might have been or it can just show us how beautiful the world around us really is.

Inside Outside



Collage and abstraction are my favorite way of working with the iPhone and apps. I feel this is the most challenging process with much thought and planning involved... not just "another appd" image. In the end, hopefully I have created a most rewarding image through an evolutionary process.

PROBE DATA COMPONENTS :: FOR D-2

Computer chips on right are equipped with data-gathering abilities built within each chip ( which are really green). These will gather critical information to help with TVN's research into tornadoes.

The chips go inside of the specially designed foam "bottle" shape (which is really a dark pinkish color).

From there, each probe will be out-fitted with a small parachute, placed inside of the canon system, and then shot upwards from inside of the Dominator-2 into a specific area of a tornado forming system.

GPS and radio will help the team find the probes and gather the much desired data.

Many thanks to Darryl Winstead
for taking time from his extremely busy day, for his explanations, courtesy, and understanding of my great love of, and interest in, weather and the Dominator's techie gadgetry!

THE ORIGINAL DOMINATOR

My personal experiences in getting to acturally see and then ride in The Dominator influenced me to take the vehicle to a dreamy state... a sort of Magical Mystery Chase within my mind.

Simple Importance

STORM CHASERS, Reed Timmer and Crew (http://www.tornadovideos.net ) and their amazing new in-progress chase vehicle, D-2, came here to my town of Tupelo to be outfitted with high-tech gadgetry and gizmos.

My third visit to the Renasant Center for Ideas and Hyperion was to see what was going on with this enormous dream of a chase vehicle.

I think I stopped breathing when I walked up to it...stood there in awe...walked slowly with great excitement around it and said, " OH ... My...God..."

The shear mass of the D-2 is mind boggling! And I certainly cannot imagine seeing it coming down the road! It is truly a jaw-dropping, breath-taking work of imagination and innovative technology on wheels - and huge ones at that!

WHAT WE MAY OVERLOOK

Abstracting the landscape can provide totally new views of what can be within a landscape that would normally not be seen. Most people in general do not take the time to look for the little things of life that are around us all. These little mysteries are often very illusive and short-lived. Capturing this magic with the iPhone camera and it's various apps is, for me, a way into the world around me.

SNOW IN MISSISSIPPI

Pureness of white and
Silent of scent
Cradled in hand
Then gone with a kiss
Delicate by reason
an awaited wish
A Gardenia out of season
melts with a kiss.

FOREVER

Words, just words that meant nothing, really,
just frivolous
hollow echoes of hope
and those dreams created in perpetual lacking,
where that hollowness grew
so loud
you had to discard it all
or die
from the fruitless and the chaos
of Forever.
