Bush’s Bitch stands up to be heard

I really don’t like vulgarity of the initial name I’ve given to this rendering, but I think its fitting. The contemplative nude female is textured with an aerial photograph of downtown Washington, DC (including the White House) over her body to give her location, and a name, “Bush’s Bitch.” Her folded arms and her stance produces an evocative signal that she is waiting for others to snap out of the mold and begin to take on the lemmings. It’s like she silently screaming, “Let me vote! I want representation like every other American.”
To make this rendering, I used the same template I used for my Valentines Day present to GWB. I have another version of this graphic that says “Don’t be a Lemming. Vote Green,” but I haven’t put it on my website, instead I uploaded it to DC Indymedia. I am brainstorming ways I can make another version of this rendering with more of a super-human touch.

Using the same revised templated used in “GWU Memory,” I made a new rendering of downtown DC. I think the coolest part of the rendering is the “bending” of the White House!
I must thank L’Enfant…

The Modern Geographer

This is my first draft of what I am calling “The Modern Geographer.” The background is a painting titled “The Geographer” by one of my favorite painters of all time, Johannes Vermeer. I scanned a picture I had of the painting and modified it to give it symmetry. I used a poser from one of my programs and mapped her body with the 2002 USGS aerial photography of the area around the White House in Washington, DC. I ended up rendering it at 8000X6000, but I realized that when I scanned the painting, I scanned it too large so that if you look closely you can actually see the RGB colors dots from the printer. I am going to rescan to the painting so I can downsample it slightly and make the colors a bit more richer. I’m still not sure where I should place the poser, or if I should include more posers, possible give her a globe to gaze at, she is a Modern Geographer afterall…

Star of DC

I realized I hadn’t made a “star of..” DC yet! So I used the template and slightly changed the way the image is mapped on to the surface and I kinda like the way it turned out. What’s even better is the new computer I got from work (1.7 mhz w/ 512 RAM laptop) can churn out a rendering in a fraction of the time! This means more posters and faster turnaround. However, I am still figuring out how I am going to port all the files from the laptop to the my iMac…

When I made this, I knew I made what I felt to be one of the most beautiful creations of my lifetime.
