Optical illusions are candy for curious minds and artist Sean
Augustine March has crafted a full candy store of illusions. His latest piece
of brain candy is the mind-bending lamp Fresnel Major. One of the slickest
examples of Infinity Cube available it seems to bend the very properties of physics
to create an infinity of space within a handy little glass box.
At their very core every infinity mirror is based on the
power of pointing a mirror at another mirror, bouncing light between the two.
Adding Dichroic glass to the equation adds an interesting twist that changes
the colour of the light as it bounces between the reflective surfaces.
Blowing bubbles is a childhood pastime that almost everyone has enjoyed but it is a pastime that becomes truly stunning when enjoyed in freezing temperatures. Once the temperature outside dips below freezing the bubbles will lose their ability to be carried away on a breeze and instead slowly convert to a spherical icicle.
The process of this conversion is visually stunning as you watch ice crystals forming and growing with the soapy bubble becoming frozen. Ice crystals are usually elusive creatures and typically the process of their formation and growth is hidden from our eyes but through the magic of bubbles you can easily see this process in action.
Presented for your viewing pleasure are the videos capturing this process in action. Having endured freezing temperatures these videographers captured one of nature’s incredible moments as liquid is transformed into a solid. Sit back relax and prepare to be amazed by bubbles.

Evidence of the wealth of untapped musical talent that the mainstream music industry seems to ignore.

Sit back relax and let the rhythm feed your soul, while your mind wonders why it is so.

Footage has recently made its way onto the internet that depicts a ship struggling through troubled waters. Filmed from the ships bridge as the captain works his way through the mountainous waves, the video should probably include a nausea warning.
The massive sea storm off the south coast of Ireland brought with it gale force winds that whipped up monster 60 foot waves. In this extreme environment one captain with nerves of steel calmly steers his ship through the storm, powering directly at and over the waves.
At times the waves completely fill your vision, blocking out any sign of the horizon. All the time the little ship that could just keeps chugging along, seeming to clamber up the waves.

Sit back, relax and prepare for the roller coaster ride that is the life of a sea captain.
