The #2 Political Party in Washington, DC
|| 11/30/2006 || 11:11 pm || Comments Off on The #2 Political Party in Washington, DC || ||

As one of the few people on the Steering Committee and a National Delegate, I am proud of this small election victory.

Going Green
The D.C. Statehood Green Party is patting itself on the back over the November election returns. The small party came in way behind Democratic winners in the big elections, but the party has gleaned a few nuggets of hope from Board of Election tallies.

Of five partisan races on the ballot Nov. 7, the party says there were 44,580 overall votes for Statehood Green candidates while there were only 29,776 Republican votes.
In the race for the city’s statehood lobbyist (Shadow Representative), the party says standard-bearer Keith Ware got 13 percent of the votes with 12,762 ballots while the Republican candidate got 8,839 or 9 percent.

Even mayoral candidate Chris Otten received 4 percent of the vote behind 6 percent for Republican David Kranich. Of course, Democrat Fenty got most of the rest.

I’d like to map the locations of where the 44,580 D.C. Statehood Green votes were cast. It would also be quite interesting to see where the 29,776 Republican votes were cast. I have a feeling the Republican votes would be found mostly in Wards 2 & 3. Sadly, I do not have the required software (ArcMap) needed to make these two maps :( Maybe I can get a friend to make it for me…



Temporal Diptych of Schiller Park, Illinois – 2005

: rendered at 9,000 X 6,000 :

This imagery of 2005 is not yet on Google Maps or Windows Live Local… hence seeing it here first is kinda like seeing what will be seen in the future, while actually seeing an interpretation of the recent past. Time is relative anyways.

Icositetragon of Northwestern Station in Chicago
|| || 10:28 am || Comments Off on Icositetragon of Northwestern Station in Chicago || ||

: rendered at 18,000 X 12,000 :

Yeah that’s right, an Icositetragon. It’s 24 sided polygon. I’ve made a few of these before, but never really got around to finding the actual name given to these polygons.

Originally titled “Sears Tower Quilt” when I started making it, I realized that the Citicorp Center created an interesting artifact in it’s reflection, so I went with it- 24 times to be exact. It creates the white “circle” in the center. However, in the process of making the polygon, the Sears Tower was pushed out of the frame and I opted to name it Northwestern Station Quilt. I’ve chosen to not use corporate naming convention (aka “Citicorp Center Quilt”) because over time the name will change (if the building is sold or comes under new management), and I’m betting the colloquial naming will last longer.

The New DC License Plate.. if H.R. 5388 passes
|| 11/28/2006 || 9:03 am || Comments Off on The New DC License Plate.. if H.R. 5388 passes || ||

H.R. 5388 is a bill before Congress that would give Utah an extra at-large representative in the House and give Washington, DC residents one representative in the House. The democratic party’s establishment is behind this bill, yet it denies Washington, DC residents representation in the senate and would render residents 1/3 represented in Congress. I decided to adjust the license plate accordingly….

Golden Gate Park Quilt – West
|| 11/24/2006 || 5:25 pm || Comments Off on Golden Gate Park Quilt – West || ||

: rendered at 9,000 X 6,000 :

This is my first triptych. Since Golden Gate Park is a large rectangle, I decided to split it up into three different parts- east, central, and west. The east & west were rendered using the diamond projection and the cener was rendered using the hexagon projection. I am quite pleased how it turned out.

Financial District Quilt of San Francisco
|| 11/22/2006 || 1:25 pm || Comments Off on Financial District Quilt of San Francisco || ||

: rendered at 18,000 X 12,000 :

via Wikipedia

The area is marked by the cluster of high-rise towers that lies between Grant Street east of the Union Square shopping district, Sacramento Street and Columbus Street, south of Chinatown and North Beach, and the Embarcadero that rings the waterfront. The city’s tallest buildings, including the Bank of America tower and the Transamerica Pyramid, and some other tall buildings, like 101 California Street and 345 California Street are located here.

The District is home to the city’s largest concentration of corporate headquarters, law firms, banks, savings & loans and other financial institutions, such as the corporate headquarters of VISA, Wells Fargo Bank, the Charles Schwab Corporation, McKesson Corporation, Barclays Global Investors, The Gap, and the Union Bank of California among others. The headquarters of the Bank of California, the 12th district of the United States Federal Reserve, and the Pacific Stock Exchange (although no longer located in that building) are located in the area as well. Montgomery Street (“Wall Street of the West”) is the traditional heart of the district. There are several shopping malls in the area including the Crocker Galleria, the Embarcadero Center, the Ferry Building, and the Rincon Center complex.

To me, it’s my second example of aerial chiaroscuro.

Grant Park Quilt
|| 11/21/2006 || 2:47 am || Comments Off on Grant Park Quilt || ||

View the Google Map of Grant Park in Chicago.

I think it’s the eruption of Buckingham Fountain from “Married with Children’s” opening sequence that does it for me. While I chose to name it Grant Park, I thought of calling it Millennium Park Quilt, which after looking at Google Map’s current imagery, I beat Google to the next Millennium, or at least to the Park by April of 2005 (my imagery’s acquisition date). Because of this, I am humbled to say I symmetrically remixed Frank Gehry‘s Pritzker Pavilion– in Google’s the current imagery the pavilion is still under construction…check the details…

I would have a second one, but due to a power outage, Grant Park Quilt #2 was offered to the gods of electricity as a humble sacrifice. I spent the day reading. Up next will be a fractal of this park.
