NASA’s TESS Mission Hopes to Find Exoplanets Beyond Our Solar System

NASA’s TESS Mission Hopes to Find Exoplanets Beyond Our Solar System The worlds orbiting other stars are called “exoplanets,” and they come in a wide variety of sizes, from gas giants larger than Jupiter to small, rocky planets about as big around as Earth or Mars. This rocky super-Earth is an illustration of the type of planets future telescopes, like NASA’s TESS, hope to find outside our solar system. via NASA https://ift.tt/2HAq6VW

HIDDEN by Sekani


A about a year ago I decided to make full CG short myself, here is the result.

Find more BTS here: https://ift.tt/2IINXBN

Hidden is a short film about self appreciation, it’s about uncovering some of the thoughts and feelings that make us who we are and seeing that those feelings are beautiful. Each of the figures are representative of an emotion; chains represents fear, crystals is love and affection, gold is greed/ambition and flowers is joy/happiness. We start off with them being all covered in cloth to be synonymous with the idea of not sharing certain feelings or aspects of ourselves, a reflection of how many of us interact in today’s society. As we progress through the film, we peel back the layers (removing the cloth), revealing what lies underneath is beautiful. We then show that all these figures create one person, reiterating all these different aspects make us who we are.

Kemialliset Ystävät – “Pujottelua” (Official Music Video) by FOLKLORE


« Pujottelua » (Official Music Video) from the album SIIPI EMPII released April 6th 2018 on Leaving Records

Inspired by an excerpt of a text by Jan Anderzen: « Once I zoomed infinitely into a single pixel and felt a path open, leading to the source of an unnamed nutriment. »

On a lovely flower I land to catch my breath. I rest my wings and enjoy a few drops of nutritional gruel.

I’m observing the nature fooling around with cryptic coloration, the effects of color and light. A bird’s coloring is made up of singular plumes and feathers… like a mosaic. I’m contemplating the masquerade of a hunter dressed up in camouflage and screaming bright orange. Once I saw a seagull and thought it was an angel. Once I zoomed infinitely into a single pixel and felt a path open, leading to the source of an unnamed nutriment. The sun has inspired tons of art, like the tanning bed for example. It is all nature! Bless the whole world! 

I flew over a wall separating the city and the woods. On it some naked witches were rehearsing their balance beam routines. I flew over a monastery and saw people gathering to form amplifiers for prayer. I flew over a lawn marking the spot where there’s no need to grow food. On the silk road I saw a truck carrying the cotton fabrics printed for Jan Anderzén. 

I’m on a true meadow. I’m aware that love gives you wings and that any flap of my wings may cause a tornado in some faraway land. Shattered bridges flying through the air, flocks of cars swiped into the ocean. My wings are closed, rubbing against each other in a circular motion – producing some small blithe rattle pitched too high for the human ear to catch.
