We are pleased as punch to unveil the key artwork for my sci-fi short film, Roxë15. UK artist Rowan Stocks-Moore has produced 3 hot & gorgeous pieces of artwork for the project. Rowan was the bomb.com to work with and we’re stoked about how this art captures the stark world of the film *and* hints at the psycho-digital thang that rocks Roxë’s world.

Meantime, post-production marches on. Editor Jack Pearley is rolling with the creative punches, working it out. Also, we’ve just brought on NYC visual effects artist Adam Wiesen to give Roxë15 a nice dose of “yuck” factor. Welcome to Team Roxë, Adam!

Next up: motion graphics wizard Kate Thomson will soon be bringing her cyber-fabulous-bad-assness to the mix. Stay tuned.

 

GODSPEED: Catch the Vibe

We are moving ever forward with the sci-fi feature film called Godspeed. It’s not your grandmother’s science fiction but this project is coming together quite nicely.

We’ll let the pictures do the talking.

GODSPEED: an independent sci-fi feature film. Celia C. Peters, Writer + Director, Gina Charbonnet, Producer.

The Queen of Soul

Happy Birthday, Lady.

She has one of the most beautiful voices ever recorded
(no shouting, shrieking or vocal contortionism required).
Thank you, thank you, thank you for letting your light shine!

Ava 500: A Freelancer’s Dream

Ava 500 by iRobot

Just worry about what shows up on camera…

Hey, hey, hey. After years of careful research and painstaking development, you can finally attend meetings in your underwear.

iRobot’s Ava 500 is a “virtual collaboration gadget” — i.e., a next-level telepresence robot that will bring you to a room when you’re not even in the building. She has a 21.5” LCD screen that puts your face up in the place (translation: throw on a nice shirt, lipstick, comb your hair — but from the waist down, anything goes), plus Ava sports juiced up cameras and mics that send audiovisuals back to the user.

Something about this picture....

Hanging with Ava

Ava 500 can navigate on her own thanks to 3D, sonar and laser sensors — and even has a neck that moves. According to maker iRobot, Ava 500 offers “freedom of movement, spontaneity and physical presence.” And, she’ll only set you back $70K (or about $2,500/month in a 3-year lease).

Yes, Ava is pricey. But on the other hand, not having to actually go to meetings…..priceless.

Feminist & Proud….Because Women Are the Bomb

People sometimes ask me what being a feminist means to me. I say it means that I know that women and men are EQUAL not the same — but of equal value.
(Which is why it takes 1 egg and 1 sperm.)
For me, everything else follows from that premise of equality….
from the spiritual to the personal to the social to the political.

Happy International Women’s Day to women & girls everywhere and to those who love us!

Science + Art = The Truth

conch shell-rafael-araujo9-horizontal-galleryVenezuelan artist Rafael Araujo creates exquisite, incredibly complex art using math as a foundation — but he doesn’t use electronics to create these pieces. He uses a ruler and a protractor to translate lines, spirals and helixes into haunting images that defy gravity and blast our sense of scale and space. That’s what’s up.
