This is my first rendering of this series that I used randomized satellite images for both the inner and outer parts of the rendering. I think I have now come up with a suitable offshoot for this project. In the next few renderings, I am going to try using only one satellite image- a randomize image for the torus and the same non-randomized image for the center. It should look nice.
On a different note, today is September 10th, 2004 and 3 years ago today I flew from Saint Louis to DC. At the time, I was visiting my girlfriend for the weekend and she said goodbye to me at the gate- the last day that happened in America. When I asked her about that day and the subsequent dream, she said that I joked about how weak the security was and how the screeners didn’t check my bags at all. On a slightly more synchronous note, John Kerry is in Saint Louis today campaigning.
