Get ready to sink your fangs into the devilishly delightful Bat Brain designer toy by Ian MacDonald! Stake your claim on this count before he flies off into the night and leaves you searching in vein. Limited to 500 pieces. Artist Statement: The Monsters pieces were an exciting opportunity to play with style, shapes, and design that more realistic Sideshow pieces I work on don't always allow. The fact that they're a Sideshow Originals property meant I was free to explore, giving the classic monsters a fun, stylized look and feel that I hope sets them apart from other vinyl statues. A big challenge in the process was to keep them all recognizable in their silhouettes so at a glance you could tell who's who, and we went through lots of iterations before landing on the final four. I'd like to thank [Unruly Project Manager] Erik Scoggan for the opportunity to work on this, and also give credit to Joe Menna for the amazing sculpts! Artist Bio: Ian MacDonald, or Moose as he's known in some circles, was born in eastern Canada in 1988. He's a graduate of animation, and after having previously worked a brief stint on the My Little Pony television series, now uses his knowledge acquired through that medium to apply to concept design, painting, and art direction for licensed products at Sideshow. When not drawing undead creatures or superheroes, Ian spends his time nerding out to video games, movies, and explaining to people in depth why he doesn't like cheese.

This summary contains the essential teachings and important critiques from the original copy. "If you watched the entire election cycle and concluded that Trump was nothing but a lucky clown, you missed one of the most important perceptual shifts in the history of humankind. I'll fix that for you in this book." Please note: This is a summary, analysis, and review of the book and not the original book. This audiobook is meant as a great companion to the original book or to simply get the gist of the original book. Adams was one of the earliest public figures to predict Trump’s win, doing so a week after Nate Silver put Trump’s odds at two percent in his FiveThirtyEight.com blog. The mainstream media regarded Trump as a novelty and a sideshow. But Adams recognized in Trump a level of persuasion you only see once in a generation.

On Ugliness
35,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In the mold of his acclaimed History of Beauty, renowned cultural critic Umberto Eco's On Ugliness is an exploration of the monstrous and the repellant in visual culture and the arts. What is the voyeuristic impulse behind our attraction to the gruesome and the horrible? Where does the magnetic appeal of the sordid and the scandalous come from? Is ugliness also in the eye of the beholder? Eco's encyclopedic knowledge and captivating storytelling skills combine in this ingenious study of the Ugly, revealing that what we often shield ourselves from and shun in everyday life is what we're most attracted to subliminally. Topics range from Milton's Satan to Goethe's Mephistopheles, from witchcraft and medieval torture tactics to martyrs, hermits, and penitents, from lunar births and disemboweled corpses to mythic monsters and sideshow freaks, and from Decadentism and picturesque ugliness to the tacky, kitsch, and camp, and the aesthetics of excess and vice. With abundant examples of painting and sculpture ranging from ancient Greek amphorae to Bosch, Brueghel, and Goya among others, and with quotations from the most celebrated writers and philosophers of each age, this provocative discussion explores in-depth the concepts of evil, depravity, and darkness in art and literature.

Sonification Design
113,16 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The contemporary design practice known as data sonification allows us to experience information in data by listening. In doing so, we understand the source of the data in ways that support, and in some cases surpass, our ability to do so visually.In order to assist us in negotiating our environments, our senses have evolved differently. Our hearing affords us unparalleled temporal and locational precision. Biological survival has determined that the ears lead the eyes. For all moving creatures, in situations where sight is obscured, spatial auditory clarity plays a vital survival role in determining both from where the predator is approaching or to where the prey has escaped. So, when designing methods that enable listeners to extract information from data, both with and without visual support, different approaches are necessary.A scholarly yet approachable work by one of the recognized leaders in the field of auditory design, this book will- Lead you through some salient historical examples of how non-speech sounds have been used to inform and control people since ancient times.- Comprehensively summarize the contemporary practice of Data Sonification.- Provide a detailed overview of what information is and how our auditory perceptions can be used to enhance our knowledge of the source of data.- Show the importance of the dynamic relationships between hearing, cognitive load, comprehension, embodied knowledge and perceptual truth.- Discuss the role of aesthetics in the dynamic interplay between listenability and clarity.- Provide a mature software framework that supports the practice of data sonification design, together with a detailed discussion of some of the design principles used in various examples.David Worrall is an internationally recognized composer, sound artist and interdisciplinary researcher in the field of auditory design. He is Professor of Audio Arts and Acoustics at Columbia College Chicago and a former elected president of the International Community for Auditory Display (ICAD), the leading organization in the field since its inception over 25 years ago.Code and audio examples for this book are available atis an excellent review of the book by Dr Gregory Kramer:"Worrall proceeds bravely through the trees and vines of philosophy, information theory, aesthetics, and other contributors to sonification design theory. It's a feat. He nails all of this down with the specific implementation system he's designed over many years, and applies his theories to specific problems. In a field of research still in its first half century and setting its bearings in a world where human perception has become a sideshow to machine learning, deep learning, and artificial intelligence, the roots David provides will serve well."Dr Gregory Kramer is the founding figure in the emerging field of sonification, founded the International Conference on Auditory Display (ICAD) and editor of the first book in the field, "Auditory Display: Sonification, Audification and Auditory Interfaces" (Addison Wesley, 1994).
