    [3] 09/07/2011 - Dernière modification le 10/09/2020 Van Abbe Museum The Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven is one of the first public museums for contemporary art to be established in Europe. The museum’s collection of around 2700 works of art includes key works and archives by Lissitzky, Picasso, Kokoschka, Chagall, Beuys, McCarthy, Daniëls and Körmeling. The museum has an experimental approach towards art’s role in society. Openness, hospitality and knowledge exchange are important. We challenge ourselves and our visitors to think about art and its place in the world, covering a range of subjects, including the role of the collection as a cultural 'memory' and the museum as a public site. International collaboration and exchange have made the Van Abbemuseum a place for creative cross-fertilisation and a source of surprise, inspiration and imagination for its visitors and participants.

  • Evoluon

    [4] 09/07/2011 - Dernière modification le 14/09/2020 Evoluon The Evoluon is a conference centre and former science museum erected by the electronics and electrical company Philips in Eindhoven, the Netherlands, in 1966. Since its construction, it has become a landmark and a symbol for the city. The building is unique due to its very futuristic design, resembling a landed flying saucer. It was designed by architect Louis Christiaan Kalff, while the exhibition was conceived by James Gardner. The building was based on an idea by Frits Philips, who originally made a sketch of the building on a paper napkin. Frits Philips wanted to give the people of Eindhoven a beautiful and educational gift to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the company that bears his family name. Its concrete dome is 77 meters (253 ft) in diameter and is held in place by 169 kilometers (105 mi) of rebar. In the 1960s and 70s it attracted large visitor numbers, since its interactive exhibitions were a new and unique concept in the Netherlands at that time. But when competing science museums opened in other cities, the number of visitors to the Evoluon declined every year. After several years of losing money, the original museum closed down in 1989 and the Evoluon was converted into a conference center, opening in 1998. The Evoluon is chiefly remembered in the UK from Bert Haanstra's wordless short film, titled simply Evoluon. Commissioned by Philips to publicise the museum, it was shown as a trade test colour film on the BBC from 1968 to 1972. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

    [5] 10/07/2011 - Dernière modification le 10/09/2020 From June 30th up to and including July 10th 2011 the theme of the City of Maastricht will be the ‘Heiligdomsvaart’. For eleven days there will be a number of activities about the theme: ‘Towards the light’. Religious activities such as Processions, Prayer services and Relic shows, but also cultural activities such as Expositions, Music performances, Movies etc. The ‘Heiligdomsvaart’ originates from a religious relics celebration, that has been celebrated for many centuries around the tomb of Saint Servaas, the first bishop of Maastricht who died in about the year 384. Large numbers of pilgrims still visit the basilica of Saint Servaas at the Vrijthof, built over the grave of this saint. Religious Events A solemn opening ceremony at the Saint Servaas Well in Biesland and a Celebration of the mass with full ceremony in the basilica of Saint Servaas at the Vrijthof will make up the start of a religious program of eleven days. Particularly in the basilica of Saint Servaas people will daily be able during Mass, a prayer service or a religious celebration to reflect on the theme: ‘Towards the light’. Processions Tens of thousands of visitors will again be able to enjoy the great Processions on Sunday July 3rd and on Sunday July 10th. The essence of the Processions is the Relic show, in which precious relics will be carried. Cultural Events Expositions in museums in Maastricht, among others with special objects of religious and other kinds of art in the Treasury of the Basilica of Saint Servaas, but also movies, music performances and theatre shows together make up the cultural program during the ‘Heiligdomsvaart 2011’.

  • La tour d'Eben-Ezer
    https://www.gaudry.be > Photography > Gallery
    [6] 21/07/2011 - Dernière modification le 08/09/2020 A Belgian self-built tower inspired by the bible and ancient civilizations. Eben-Ezer Tower is a tower-museum built by Robert Garcet to Eben-Emael (common Bassenge ), north of Liège. Its proportions are based on those of the New Jerusalem , according to John. According to its architect, Robert Garcet , each stone has a revelation and the figures speak for themselves. The building, 33 meters high on a square plan with turret corners, is constructed of large stones of flint on a deep well of 33 meters also. One of the leading manufacturer is Krawinckel Gilbert. Its seven floors are crowned by the four cherubim of the Apocalypse, scupted in stone: Taurus, northwest, man, south-west, Leo, southeast, and the Eagle, the northeast. At the base of the tower, a stone circle draws her twelve pillars between the bushes, each standing stone is distant from each other by 3.33 meters. As for the monumental staircase that runs down the hillside, he, too, the dimensions required by an ancient esoteric . In the Bible, Eben-Ezer is the Stone of help, the memorial stone set up by Samuel after a defeat of the Philistines, as a memorial of the aid received in connection with God (1 Sat 7:7 - 12), near Mizpah (Benjamin), near the western entrance to the pass of Beth-horon. The Tower of Eben-Ezer is a self-built castle constructed in the 1960s by a single man in the isolated Jeker valley of Belgium. The builder, Robert Garcet, was fascinated with the Bible, numerology and ancient civilizations. The entire seven-level tower is built of flint, and according to Garcet, was designed using ancient mystical measurements. On the top of the tower are four giant biblical animals, and the interior is full of Garcet's biblical, archaeological, paleontological and geological art. Even more curious is that although the tower only looks ancient, it sits on top of a vast network of truly ancient tunnels. Garcet claims to have discovered over a hundred "new" fossilized creatures and a 70-million year-old village in the labyrinth of tunnels under the tower! Unfortunately, the village was destroyed by a mining explosion before it could be studied. A new educational space called the Geospadium takes the visitor on a tour of the history and use of the flint stone. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, and Atlas Oscura.

La carrière de Forêt-Trooz appartient au moment de la prise de vue (2011) à la SA Gralex qui y exploite 275.000 tonnes de grès par an. Celui-ci est concassé et est principalement utilisé dans les travaux routiers. L’activité de la carrière de Trooz est saisonnière car le gisement est séparé des installations par la Vesdre et le passage se fait à gué. Il est donc impossible d’accéder au gisement et aux installations primaires en cas de crue.

    [11] 27/07/2011 - Dernière modification le 10/09/2020 This building is a landmark at the head of the JF Kennedylaan. It is an exciting construction of glass and steel. From the outside, the construction is noticeable because the walls are made of glass from floor to ceiling. The tension is further increased because the upper part of the tower is wider than the lower part. The façade itself consists of a double skin: an outer skin of glass and then 60 inches wide ventilated cavity and finally the inner skin of double glazing. Source: Mimoa

    [14] 16/08/2020 - Dernière modification le 02/09/2020 Fallout 3 - Raider arclight helmet The welder's mask is a piece of headwear which is added to Fallout 3. It is a variant of the raider arclight helmet featuring an increased damage resistance of 5. It can be repaired with raider arclight helmets. It can be found on a number slaves in The Pitt, and is in appearance identical to the raider arclight helmet found throughout the Capital Wasteland. The masks, as their name suggests, are primarily used by slaves that use a welding torch as to keep sparks from flying into their face. The reasoning is the same with slaves that use auto axes to cut through metal, but instead of just sparks, it's sparks and rogue metal shards.

    [16] 28/09/2011 - Dernière modification le 31/08/2020 Doel is a village located in the area of Antwerpen in Belgium. Doel was until 1977 an autonomous commune, of a surface of 25.61 km², with a population of 1300 inhabitants. Initially, it was chosen, (like Tihange in the Province of Liège), like site of one of the nuclear power plants of Belgium. Then, Doel is sacrificed to the extension of the port of Antwerpen. The total evacuation of the village, after expropriation of its inhabitants, was decided in 1999 by the Flemish regional authority, to leave place to new harbor installations. All of Doel is evacuated. All? Not quite! A very small number of inhabitants is holding out, strong as ever, against the Roman invaders... oh I'm sorry, that it is another Gallic village. Benefitting from the departure of the inhabitants, many artists left free course with their talent and their imagination on the walls of the city. See more about Doel in Wikipedia

It is one of fourteen cemeteries for American World War II dead on foreign soil, and is administered by the American Battle Monuments Commission. The ninety and a half acre cemetery and memorial is located in Neuville-en-Condroz, near the southeast edge of Neupré, Wallonia, Belgium. It is one of three American war cemeteries in Belgium, the other two being at Flanders Field and Henri-Chapelle. Layout and memorial The Ardennes American Cemetery is generally rectangular in shape. Its grave plots are arranged in the form of a Greek cross separated by two broad intersecting paths. At the east end of the traverse path is a bronze figure symbolizing American youth, designed by sculptor C. Paul Jennewein. The cemetery is surrounded on all sides by stands of trees. An approach drive leads to the memorial, a rectangular structure bearing on its south facade a massive American eagle with three figures symbolizing Justice, Liberty, and Truth and thirteen stars representing the United States. This facade was designed by C. Paul Jennewein. The facade on the far (north) end, which overlooks the burial area, bears the insignia in mosaic of the major United States units which operated in northwest Europe in World War II. Along the outside of the memorial are the "Tablets of the Missing", granite slabs on which are inscribed the names of 462 American missing (15 Navy and 447 Army and Army Air Forces) who gave their lives in the service of their country, but whose remains were never recovered or identified.

These were fours of 3, 4.9, and 9.9 liters. /.../ Impéria produced a monobloc 12 hp (8.9 kW) in 1909; in 1910 the company merged with Springuel. The factory producing Impéria-Abadals from about 1916; in 1921, it built three ohc 5·6-liter straight-eights. These were quickly replaced by an ephemeral ohc 3-liter 32-valve four which was capable of going 90 mph (140 km/h). This was followed by an 1100 cc side-valve 11/22 hp four designed by Couchard, one of the first cars ever built with a sunroof. Its engine rotated counter-clockwise, and its transmission brake also served as a servo for those on the front wheels. In 1937 a six of 1624 cc appeared; this had been available in three-carburettor Super Sports form from 1930. Over the course of four years Impéria took over three other Belgian car manufacturers: Métallurgique (1927), Excelsior (1929), and Nagant (1931). From 1934 until the company folded it built mainly front-wheel-drive Adlers with Belgian-made coachwork. The company merged with Minerva in 1934, but they split in 1939. After 1948 Impéria assembled Adlers and Standard Vanguards under license. After Standard decided to set up a new factory in Belgium, the factory was left without work and had to close doors in 1957. In 1925, the company hired Louis de Monge as chief research engineer. Some of his work included torsion bar suspension and automatic transmissions. De Monge left in 1937 to join Ettore Bugatti for whom he would design the Bugatti 100P racer plane. In addition to its production in Belgium, Impéria made a number of cars in Great Britain; these were assembled at a factory in Maidenhead. Rooftop test track Around and on top of the factory buildings, there was a test track over 1km long. The track was built in 1928. The test drivers used the roads of the village, a road with a lot of bends. Speeding and high revving engines made the population mad and they were no longer willing to support the factory. The only solution was to build a test track within the factory and using the football field of the local football club. The ring started within the factory, then over the roof which gave a track of about one kilometre. Only Fiat had a similar track. This little test track became an attraction in the region. A little causeway allowed people to climb onto the nearside hill to watch the spectacle of car testing over the factories roofs. And now Now most of the buildings are occupied by a firm of construction, and a few sheds and batiments are so ruined that the roof risks to collapse. There are still two vehicles (under the dust and the building materials), among which one may be an Imperia model. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Location: Dommelbrug Noord About the project: The balloons with a diameter of ca. 2 meter are filled with helium and fitted with LED lighting. When there is low wind velocity they are allowed to flow vertically into the sky on a 100-meter-long cord. The upward force of the helium ensures that the cord is drawn upwards, while the wind pushes it aside. In this way the cord of luminescent balloons becomes a graph whose shape is determined by the wind. At high wind speeds the balloons are kept closer to the ground in other patterns. Wind graph is designed and executed by Ralph Brodruck and the Tendris Company. About the photo This picture is a merge of 3 photos of the balloons moving in the wind, with a speed of 0,005 sec (1/200). From Glow 2011 website.

Characteristic of Transformation are the multiples of knowledge and continuous innovation, nurtured from a common source: Eindhoven University of Technology. This energy is enclosed and embedded in a steel tube and can only exit this tube through an organized structure in the metal. Only a purely pointed source of light unlocks and translates the structure in the metal into a circular projection.

Location: Square 18 septemberplein About the project: Originally from Poland but since 1977 a resident of the united states Krzysztof Wodiczko has become famous for his socially engaged and politically charged work. Since the eighties, he has realized numerous projects in public space. With his art he wants to increase people\u2019s awareness of the social conditions in their immediate environment and to contribute to the political debate. During GLOW he presents War Veteran Vehicle, a military vehicle that has served in war zones for the Dutch army, now driving through the streets of Eindhoven. It is equipped with a projector that fires words on the facades of the 18 September Square, accompanied by sounds. The projected images are quotes from national and local war veterans and their families. They explain why the transition from the battlefield to a civilian life has been difficult for them. With his work Wodiczko hopes that people will open their eyes for the traumatic effects military missions could cause. He offers war veterans and their families the opportunity to speak out in public and to share their experiences. At the same time he focuses on the personal problems of veterans in their own environment. From Glow 2011 website.

Location: Market Square About the project: In collaboration with CultuurStation, the mediator between culture and education in Eindhoven, students of primary schools in Eindhoven and its environs were invited to design their own light. The response was overwhelming. About thousand students showed their creativity and decorated their own lampshades. The required lights were provided by the Lichtjesroute Eindhoven. Volunteers from the Scouting Dr. Albert Schweitzer helped to connect and install the creations. The result is a great piece of artwork that seems to float above the Market Square. An event like GLOW is an excellent opportunity to make children aware of the importance of renewable energy. Therefore the Environmental Education Center (MEC) gladly joined this initiative. With special education material of the MEC, teachers focused on smart and responsible use of light From Glow 2011 website.

Location: Catharina Church About the project: The four members of the Swiss Projektil focus on projections of huge dimensions in the public space. Using light, shape and color they tell stories and offer people a fascinating experience. For GLOW Projektil uses both old and new projection techniques. Until recently, large-scale projections usually apply analog projectors, that only show static or scrolling images. These in fact function as large slide projectors. A relatively young technique that has developed rapidly is video mapping. With this technique video images can be projected very accurate and with high light intensity which creates a powerful illusion. In Charm on Speed both projection techniques are used. The characteristics of both methods are combined and playfully confront each other. The result is a feast for the eyes and brings the facade of the Catharina Church to life. From Glow 2011 website.

Location: van Abbemuseum About the project: This work by Xavier de Richemont was the opening act at the launch of GLOW in 2006. Because five years ago only a few people have actually seen it, this year a repetition follows. A performance on the outer walls of the Van Abbe Museum suggests the building is on fire and burns within minutes. The projection is strong and closely matches the shape of the building, so the actual structure of the museum disappears and the fire looks genuine. With this work De Richemont refers to a quote from Pablo Picasso, where he calls for burning down the museums, because creativity is only locked up here. By taking down the proverbial walls, the gap between art and audience can be closed. The accompanying music is inspired by a composition of Claude Débussy. From Glow 2011 website.

    [47] 09/11/2011 - Dernière modification le 05/09/2020 Van Abbe Museum The Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven is one of the first public museums for contemporary art to be established in Europe. The museum’s collection of around 2700 works of art includes key works and archives by Lissitzky, Picasso, Kokoschka, Chagall, Beuys, McCarthy, Daniëls and Körmeling. The museum has an experimental approach towards art’s role in society. Openness, hospitality and knowledge exchange are important. We challenge ourselves and our visitors to think about art and its place in the world, covering a range of subjects, including the role of the collection as a cultural 'memory' and the museum as a public site. International collaboration and exchange have made the Van Abbemuseum a place for creative cross-fertilisation and a source of surprise, inspiration and imagination for its visitors and participants.

    [48] 09/11/2011 - Dernière modification le 04/09/2020 Burning Van Abbe Museum (Xavier de Richemont ) GLOW - International Forum of Light in Art and Architecture Eindhoven 2011 - 6th Edition - 'Illusion and reality' Due to the dedication of CityDynamiek Eindhoven, from November, 5th to 12th, 2011, the city center of Eindhoven turns again into a forum of interventions, installations, performances and events based on the phenomena of artificial light. Location: van Abbemuseum About the project: This work by Xavier de Richemont was the opening act at the launch of GLOW in 2006. Because five years ago only a few people have actually seen it, this year a repetition follows. A performance on the outer walls of the Van Abbe Museum suggests the building is on fire and burns within minutes. The projection is strong and closely matches the shape of the building, so the actual structure of the museum disappears and the fire looks genuine. With this work De Richemont refers to a quote from Pablo Picasso, where he calls for burning down the museums, because creativity is only locked up here. By taking down the proverbial walls, the gap between art and audience can be closed. The accompanying music is inspired by a composition of Claude Débussy. From Glow 2011 website.

Location: De Effenaar About the project: The pond at the Effenaar is filled with blue fog and populated by fireflies. The insects are hidden in the reeds and communicate through pulses of light. Sometimes the swarm pulsate synchronous, making strong light concentrations. In Fireflies the audience controls the behavior of the fireflies. It is as if the visitors upset the insects so that they fly off a little further and quietly resume their original pulse. With this installation Tamar Frank reinforces the contrast between the clean lines of the Effenaar and surrounding concrete buildings and the flourishing vegetation in the pond. She changes the area around the platform in an artificial natural park, in the midst of the city. This enlargement of the reality reminisces of the eerie, swampy areas that we know from adventure movies and comics. From Glow 2011 website.

Location: TU/e en Kennispoort About the project: On the TU/e campus and surrounding area lighting designer Michel Suk fully lightens different buildings and landscape elements. Large-scale installations slowly change color or reveal patterns which alternately show chaos and order. Because the light programs are linked together, the overall view is impressive. Visitors walk through a landscape of light and color in which vistas and sight lines continuously cause other images. To mark the 120 year anniversary of Philips the concern supports this project of Michel Suk. His work seamlessly connect to the Philips theme of \u2018Livable Cities\u2019. Absolute eye-catcher in this large installation is the building of Kennispoort. This is the scenery for a co-production of Michel Suk and composer Bart van Dongen. Accompanied by a wind instruments ensemble and electronics a choir of 150 to 200 singers performs a new composition by Bart van Dongen. By using projections Michel Suk provides for a powerful visual counterweight. Because Van Dongen and Suk have worked together from the start lighting and sound are integrated beautifully. Both images and music of Beauty of stagnation are based on the Fibonacci number sequence, which describes growth processes in nature. In both media small entities accumulate to large and complex constructions. For example the projection of a line develops into a tree structure or a color into a fine mosaic. The words and sounds of the music composition evolve gradually into extensive rhythms and tunes. From Glow 2011 website.

    [55] 09/11/2011 - Dernière modification le 12/09/2020 <Metropolux (Har Hollands en Cees Bos) GLOW - International Forum of Light in Art and Architecture Eindhoven 2011 - 6th Edition - 'Illusion and reality' Due to the dedication of CityDynamiek Eindhoven, from November, 5th to 12th, 2011, the city center of Eindhoven turns again into a forum of interventions, installations, performances and events based on the phenomena of artificial light. Location: Kennedy Square About the project: This year Kennedy Square is the starting point for Har Hollands and Kees Bos from Eindhoven. They were inspired by the gloomy vista on the dark side of the railway station with the constantly coming and going of trains. Using projections, lighting effects and sounds they show us in a poetic way an illusion that closely intertwines reality. The title of the work is not only a contraction of 'Metropolis' and 'lux' (light), but also refers to the famous 1927 movie by Fritz Lang: Metropolis. This movie is about a futuristic city and contains some then ultamodern special effects. Metropolis has influenced generations of artists and filmmakers, and still appeals when imagining the urban environment. The project is supported by Rot8ion. Rot8ion is a surround sound instrument. The Rot8ion instrument creates spatial surround soundscapes and live surround performances. For Metropolux, Rob van Rooij (Echonaut from the Collider Collective) created a surround soundscape with the Rot8ion instrument. From Glow 2011 website.

The first train station of Liège-Guillemins was inaugurated in May 1842, linking the valley to the upper Ans station. In 1843, the first international railway connection was born, linking Liège to Aachen and Cologne. The station was modernized and improved in 1882 and in 1905 for the World Fair in Liège. This station was replaced in 1958 by a modern (for that time) one that was used until June 2009, a few months before the opening of the new Calatrava designed station. New station The new station by the architect Santiago Calatrava was officially opened on September 18, 2009 with a show by Franco Dragone. It has 9 tracks and 5 platforms (three of 450m and two of 350m). All the tracks around the station have been modernized to allow high speed arrival and departure. The new station is made of steel, glass and white concrete. It includes a monumental arch, 200 metres long and 35 metres high. The building costs were € 312 million.

  • Istanbul, Basilica Cistern
    https://www.gaudry.be > Photography > Gallery
    [66] 20/02/2012 - Dernière modification le 04/09/2020 The Basilica Cistern (Turkish: Yerebatan Sarayı - "Sunken Palace", or Yerebatan Sarnıcı - "Sunken Cistern"), is the largest of several hundred ancient cisterns that lie beneath the city of Istanbul (formerly Constantinople), Turkey. The cistern, located 500 feet (150 m) southwest of the Hagia Sophia on the historical peninsula of Sarayburnu, was built in the 6th century during the reign of Byzantine Emperor Justinian I. History The name of this subterranean structure derives from a large public square on the First Hill of Constantinople, the Stoa Basilica, beneath which it was originally constructed. Before being converted to a cistern, a great Basilica stood in its place, built between the 3rd and 4th centuries during the Early Roman Age as a commercial, legal and artistic centre. The basilica was reconstructed by Ilius after a fire in 476. Ancient texts indicated that the basilica contained gardens, surrounded by a colonnade and facing the Church of Hagia Sophia According to ancient historians, Emperor Constantine built a structure that was later rebuilt and enlarged by Emperor Justinian after the Nika riots of 532, which devastated the city. Historical texts claim that 7,000 slaves were involved in the construction of the cistern. The enlarged cistern provided a water filtration system for the Great Palace of Constantinople and other buildings on the First Hill, and continued to provide water to the Topkapı Palace after the Ottoman conquest in 1453 and into modern times. In media The cistern was used as a location for the 1963 James Bond film From Russia with Love. In the film, it is referred to as being constructed by the Emperor Constantine, with no reference to Justinian. Its location is a considerable distance from the Soviet (now Russian) consulate, which is located in Beyoğlu, the "newer" European section of Istanbul, on the other side of the Golden Horn. The finale of the 2009 film The International takes place in a fantasy amalgam of the Old City, depicting the Basilica Cistern as lying beneath the Sultan Ahmed Mosque, which, in the film, is directly adjacent to the Süleymaniye Mosque. In the 2011 video game, Assassin's Creed: Revelations, the player controlled character, Ezio Auditore, is given the chance to explore a section of this cistern in a memory sequence entitled The Yerebatan Cistern.

  • Yerebatan Sarayı

    [68] 20/02/2012 - Dernière modification le 09/09/2020 The Basilica Cistern (Turkish: Yerebatan Sarayı - "Sunken Palace", or Yerebatan Sarnıcı - "Sunken Cistern"), is the largest of several hundred ancient cisterns that lie beneath the city of Istanbul (formerly Constantinople), Turkey. The cistern, located 500 feet (150 m) southwest of the Hagia Sophia on the historical peninsula of Sarayburnu, was built in the 6th century during the reign of Byzantine Emperor Justinian I. History The name of this subterranean structure derives from a large public square on the First Hill of Constantinople, the Stoa Basilica, beneath which it was originally constructed. Before being converted to a cistern, a great Basilica stood in its place, built between the 3rd and 4th centuries during the Early Roman Age as a commercial, legal and artistic centre. The basilica was reconstructed by Ilius after a fire in 476. Ancient texts indicated that the basilica contained gardens, surrounded by a colonnade and facing the Church of Hagia Sophia According to ancient historians, Emperor Constantine built a structure that was later rebuilt and enlarged by Emperor Justinian after the Nika riots of 532, which devastated the city. Historical texts claim that 7,000 slaves were involved in the construction of the cistern. The enlarged cistern provided a water filtration system for the Great Palace of Constantinople and other buildings on the First Hill, and continued to provide water to the Topkapı Palace after the Ottoman conquest in 1453 and into modern times. In media The cistern was used as a location for the 1963 James Bond film From Russia with Love. In the film, it is referred to as being constructed by the Emperor Constantine, with no reference to Justinian. Its location is a considerable distance from the Soviet (now Russian) consulate, which is located in Beyoğlu, the "newer" European section of Istanbul, on the other side of the Golden Horn. The finale of the 2009 film The International takes place in a fantasy amalgam of the Old City, depicting the Basilica Cistern as lying beneath the Sultan Ahmed Mosque, which, in the film, is directly adjacent to the Süleymaniye Mosque. In the 2011 video game, Assassin's Creed: Revelations, the player controlled character, Ezio Auditore, is given the chance to explore a section of this cistern in a memory sequence entitled The Yerebatan Cistern.

  • MV Savarona on the Bosphorus
    https://www.gaudry.be > Photography > Gallery
    [70] 21/02/2012 - Dernière modification le 03/09/2020 The MV Savarona (also sometimes M/Y, for motor yacht) is a luxury State yacht. She was the largest in the world when launched in 1931, and remains with a length of 136 m (446 ft) one of the world’s longest. She is owned by the Republic of Turkey and is currently leased by Turkish businessman Kahraman Sadıkoğlu from the Turkish State. Vessel's Details: Year Built: 1931 Length x Breadth: 124 m X 16 m Gross Tonnage: 4646, DeadWeight: 1540 t Speed recorded (Max / Average): 18 / 13.5 knots Last Known Port: ISTANBUL Tonnage & Dimensions: GT (Gross Tonnage): 4646 NT (Net Tonnage): DWT (Deadweight): 1540 Displacement: 5710 LOA (Length Overall): 136 Beam: 53 ft (16 m) Draft (max): 20 ft (6.1 m) Depth: Height: 52 ft (16 m) Length: 408 ft (124 m) waterline; 446 ft (136 m) - stern to bowsprit History: Named for an African swan living in the Indian Ocean, the ship was designed by Gibbs & Cox in 1931 for American heiress Emily Roebling Cadwallader, granddaughter of John A. Roebling, engineer of the Brooklyn Bridge. The ship was built by Blohm & Voss in Hamburg, Germany. She cost about $4 million ($57 million in 2010 dollars). Equipped with Sperry gyro-stabilizers, she was described in 1949 by Jane's Fighting Ships as "probably the most sumptuously fitted yacht afloat." In 1938, the Turkish government bought the yacht for ailing leader Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, who spent only six weeks aboard before dying a few months later. Throughout World War II, the ship lay idle in Kanlıca Bay on the Bosporus. In 1951, she was converted to the training ship Güneş Dil (English: Sun Language). In October 1979, the ship was gutted by fire at the Turkish Naval Academy off Heybeliada Island in the Sea of Marmara. She lay virtually abandoned for ten years. In 1989, she was chartered for 49 years by Turkish businessman Kahraman Sadıkoğlu. Over three years, his firm completely refurbished her for about $45 million, removing the original steam turbine engines and installing modern diesel engines. The ship was rebuilt at Tuzla Shipyards in Tuzla, a suburb of Istanbul, for the purpose of serving famous and important guests and helping to keep the memory of Atatürk alive. On 28 September 2010 teams of the gendarmerie raided the yacht with assistance of the coast guard and in other places across the country eight persons were arrested for organized human trafficking and detained of 15 women and six foreigner male guests aboard for prostitution. The yacht was rented by a Kazakh businessman three days before in Bodrum for one week and was en route Antalya, said the yacht's operator, Kahraman Sadıkoğlu. Yusuf Hakkı Doğan, a public prosecutor in Antalya, who conducted the operation, revealed that the yacht had been used twice for prostitution purposes, the first time in Bodrum. On the 30th of September 2010, the lease on the MV Savarona was revoked and it reverted to the Turkish Republic as a State Yacht. Features: Savarona features a swimming pool, a turkish bath, a 282-foot (86 m) gold-trimmed grand staircase that survived from her original construction, a movie theater, and a library suite dedicated to Atatürk, which is furnished with many of his personal artifacts. Under its charter operator the yacht was available for charter including the crew but not provisions. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

  • Istanbul, Topkapi palace - Imperial Council (Defterhāne)
    https://www.gaudry.be > Photography > Gallery
    [74] 22/02/2012 - Dernière modification le 20/08/2020 Defterhāne This picture shows the third chamber called Defterhāne. Imperial Council The Imperial Council (Dîvân-ı Hümâyûn) building is the chamber in which the ministers of state, council ministers (Dîvân Heyeti), the Imperial Council, consisting of the Grand Vizier (Paşa Kapısı), viziers, and other leading officials of the Ottoman state, held meetings. It is also called Kubbealtı, which means "under the dome", in reference to the dome in the council main hall. It is situated in the northwestern corner of the courtyard next to the Gate of Felicity. The first Council chambers in the palace were built during the reign of Mehmed II, and the present building dates from the period of Süleyman the Magnificent by the chief architect Alseddin. It has since undergone several changes, was much damaged and restored after the Harem fire of 1665, and according to the entrance inscription it was also restored during the periods of Selim III and Mahmud II. From the 18th century onwards, the place began to lose its original importance, as state administration was gradually transferred to the Sublime Porte (Bâb-ı Âli) of the Grand Viziers. The last meeting of the Council in the palace chambers was held on Wednesday, August 30, 1876, when the cabinet (Vükela Heyeti) met to discuss the state of Murat V, who had been indisposed for some time. The council hall has multiple entrances both from inside the palace and from the courtyard. The porch consists of multiple marble and porphyry pillars, with an ornate green and white-coloured wooden ceiling decorated with gold. The floor is covered in marble. The entrances into the hall from outside are in the rococo style, with gilded grills to admit natural light. While the pillars are earlier Ottoman style, the wall paintings and decorations are from the later rococo period. Inside, the Imperial Council building consists of three adjoining main rooms. Two of the three domed chambers of this building open into the porch and the courtyard. The Divanhane, built with a wooden portico at the corner of the Divan Court (Divan Meydani) in the 15th century, was later used as the mosque of the council but was removed in 1916. There are three domed chambers: - The first chamber where the Imperial Council held its deliberations is the Kubbealtı. - The second chamber was occupied by the secretarial staff of the Imperial Divan. - In the adjacent third chamber called Defterhāne (this view) , records were kept by the head clerks. The last room also served as a document archive. On its facade are verse inscriptions, which mention the restoration work carried out in 1792 and 1819, namely under Sultan Selim III and Mahmud II. The rococo decorations on the façade and inside the Imperial Council date from this period. The main chamber Kubbealtı is, however, decorated with Ottoman Kütahya tiles. Three long sofas along the sides were the seats for the officials, with a small hearth in the middle. The small gilded ball that hangs from the ceiling represents the earth. It is placed in front of the sultan's window and symbolizes him dispensing justice to the world, as well as keeping the powers of his viziers in check. In the Imperial Council meetings, the political, administrative and religious affairs of the state and important concerns of the citizens were discussed. The Imperial Council normally met four times a week (Saturday, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday) after prayer at dawn. The meetings of the Imperial Council were run according to an elaborate and strict protocol. Council members such as the Grand Vizier, viziers, chief military officials of the Muslim Judiciary (Kazaskers) of Rumelia and Anatolia, the Minister of Finance or heads of the Treasury (defterdar), the Minister of Foreign Affairs (Reis-ül-Küttab) and sometimes the Grand Müfti (Sheikh ül-İslam) met here to discuss and decide the affairs of state. Other officials who were allowed were the Nişancilar secretaries of the Imperial Council and keepers of the royal monogram (tuğra) and the officials charged with the duty of writing official memoranda (Tezkereciler), and the clerks recording the resolutions. From the window with the golden grill, the Sultan or the Valide Sultan was able to follow deliberations of the council without being noticed. The window could be reached from the imperial quarters in the adjacent Tower of Justice (Adalet Kulesi). When the sultan rapped on the grill or drew the red curtain, the Council session was terminated, and the viziers were summoned one by one to the Audience Hall (Arz Odası) to present their reports to the sultan. All the statesmen, apart from the Grand Vizier, performed their dawn prayers in the Hagia Sophia and entered the Imperial Gate according to their rank, passing through the Gate of Salutation and into the divan chamber, where they would wait for the arrival of the Grand Vizier. The Grand Vizier performed his prayers at home, and was accompanied to the palace by his own attendants. On his arrival there, he was given a ceremonial welcome, and before proceeding to the imperial divan, he would approach the Gate of Felicity and salute it as if paying his respects to the gate of the sultan's house. He entered the chamber and took his seat directly under the sultan's window and council commenced. Affairs of the state were generally discussed until noon, when the members of the Council dined in the chambers and after which petitions were heard here. All the members of Ottoman society, men and women of all creeds, were granted a hearing. An important ceremony was held to mark the first Imperial Council of each new Grand Vizier, and also to mark his presentation with the Imperial Seal (Mühr-ü Hümayûn). The most important ceremony took place every three months during the handing out of salaries (ulûfe) to the Janissaries. The reception of foreign dignitaries was normally arranged for the same day, creating an occasion to reflect the wealth and might of the state. Ambassadors were then received by the Grand Vizier in the Council chambers, where a banquet was held in their honour. Source: Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia - version 10Mar2012

In the village of Ardolaz somewhere in the Valais Alps, Sir Melvin Woodworth is in pursuit of a remember, the shadow of his brother Dragan, pianist in the middle of the mountains. He heards one night a melody played on the piano of the decrepit abandoned hotel. An avalanche is going to destroy the village and the population is evacuated.

In the 60s, the hotel became famous for its theme evenings, nights like Brazilian, jazz, African ... the main lounge and bar welcome the stars but also the regional dish. The fate of this hotel goes dark in the late 90s, when it is landing in the hands of the Cantonal Bank of Vaud (BCV). It therefore passes from hand to hand, without finding an owner willing to take the huge renovation that the building needs. Gradually, the squatters invaded the stage. One night a caravan from even smoke in the parking lot. The town, for safety reasons, access is looping. "But we went there as in a mill," says an inhabitant of Villars.

One evening in April 2008, at 3 am, the alarm is raised. The rundown is on fire. It will take just over 12 hours to ensure that the fire is under control. The property is destroyed and the population does not believe in accidents. It was demolished a few months later.

The exhibition collections refuses to privilege the public scholar, it aims instead to familiarize the visitor with prehistoric life itself rather than with the representation given by the Archaeology. The chronology is not the main theme of the course. The museum is structured according to themes of prehistoric life in order to create a genuine relationship between the daily life of the visitor and that of prehistoric man. For this purpose, the concept expographique refers to his daily life, in a participatory approach and a variety of scenic resources: interactive terminals, multimedia projections, reconstructions, facsimiles to handle, ... The cave Ramioul: The cave Ramioul is a treasure of natural heritage and archaeological Walloon. It is a listed site of the Walloon Region. Discoveries that were made and the beauty of its concretions make it unavoidable. Cave Ramioul extends to within one kilometer of the cave Engis which were discovered in 1829, the first Neanderthal fossils in the world. "Chercheurs de la Wallonie" fought for many years to preserve it, and it narrowly escaped the shots backhoe. Since its inception, Prehistoric - Museum of Prehistory in Wallonia, has made every effort to conserve, preserve and enhance this jewel stone and its biodiversity. The upper level of the cave has archaeological interest. The terrace was cleared in progressively different excavations. In October 1908, A. Vandebosch and her team of "Chercheurs de la Wallonie" discover the Neolithic ossuary of "triangular cave" that overlooks the terrace of the cave when masked by sediments. Shards of pottery, faunal remains, some stone tools and numerous body parts belonging to seven children and dated + / -2750 years BC have been unearthed. Continued excavations beneath the ossuary and the release of the entry in 1911, leading the researchers to explore the cave itself. It delivers the tools belonging to Palaeolithic industries as well as faunal remains of now extinct species (bear, lion, cave hyaena, wolf, woolly rhinoceros, mammoth). On the terrace, two archaeological layers were identified. The first was attributed to the Upper Palaeolithic to Aurigacien (+ / - 30000ans BC) and contains various tools slide and faunal remains consumed. The second oldest (+ / - 70000ans BC), contains tools and Middle Paleolithic characteristics attributed to Keilmessergruppen (Neanderthal). Cave Ramioul contributes to the dialogue between past and present. She is behind the Museum of Prehistory in Wallonia and participates in the ongoing dialogue established between the prehistoric sites of excavation, the archaeological material and the public.

    https://www.gaudry.be > Photography > Gallery
    [85] 05/09/2020 - Dernière modification le 12/09/2020 Cowpers Un cowper moderne consiste en cylindre vertical en acier de 6 à 9 m de diamètre et s'élevant à 20 à 35 m. Cette enceinte est remplie de briques réfractaires dont la nature dépend de leur rôle : on a des briques isolantes qui protègent la face interne du blindage du cowper, et des briques stockant et restituant la chaleur. Ces dernières servent à la construction du puits de combustion, où se déploie la flamme, et du rûchage, un empilement de briques perforées qui absorbe la chaleur des fumées. Le puits est souvent intégré dans le cylindre où il occupe environ un tiers de la section du four. Les plus gros cowpers sont dotés de puits externes qui permettent de mieux isoler la zone de combustion de celle d’accumulation/restitution de chaleur. La chauffe étant plus lente que le refroidissement, chaque haut fourneau est doté de trois, parfois quatre, cowpers passant alternativement dans chaque phase. En fonctionnement continu, un cowper restitue sa chaleur pendant environ 30 min, avant que le vent soit orienté vers le cowper qui vient de finir une réchauffe de 50 min (durée à laquelle il faut ajouter les phases d'inertage et de mise en pression, qui durent 10 min). Un cowper moderne peut réchauffer environ 1,4 tonne de vent à 1 200 °C, par tonne de fonte. Lorsqu’il restitue sa chaleur, c'est donc, pour un haut fourneau produisant 6 000 t de fonte par jour, un four d'une puissance d'environ 100 MW. La chauffe est effectuée par combustion d'une partie du gaz produit par le haut fourneau, qui doit être mélangé avec un gaz riche pour atteindre les températures souhaitées. Source: Wikipedia Modern cowper consists in vertical steel cylinder 6 to 9 m and a diameter amounting to from 20 to 35 m. This enclosure is filled with refractory bricks whose nature depends on their role has insulating bricks that protect the inner face of the shield cowper, and storing and reproducing bricks heat. The latter are used in the construction of wells combustion, where the flame spreads, and rûchage, a stack of perforated bricks which absorbs heat of the fumes. The well is often integrated into the cylinder where it occupies about one third of the furnace section. The biggest feature cowpers outer wells to better isolate the combustion zone of the accumulator / heat delivery. Heating is slower than cooling, each blast furnace has three, sometimes four, stoves passing alternately in each phase. In continuous operation, cowper restores its heat for about 30 minutes before the wind is facing cowper who just finished a 50-minute heats (time at which there are the phases inerting and pressurization, lasting 10 min). Modern cowper can warm wind of about 1.4 tons to 1200 ° C, per ton of pig iron. When the heat returns, so this is for a blast furnace producing 6000 t of pig iron per day, a furnace with a capacity of approximately 100 MW. The heater is powered by combustion of part of the product through the furnace, which must be mixed with the rich gas to achieve the desired gas temperature.

  • M134 Minigun
    https://www.gaudry.be > Photography > Gallery
    [86] 04/09/2020 - Dernière modification le 11/09/2020 The M134 Minigun is a 7.62 mm, six-barreled machine gun with a high rate of fire (2,000 to 6,000 rounds per minute), employing Gatling-style rotating barrels with an external power source. The term "Minigun" has popularly come to refer to any externally powered Gatling gun of rifle caliber, though the term is sometimes used to refer to guns of similar rates of fire and configuration, regardless of power source and caliber. Specifically, minigun refers to a specific model of weapon, originally produced by General Electric. The "Mini" of the name is in comparison to designs that use a similar firing mechanism but larger shells, such as General Electric's earlier 20 mm M61 Vulcan, and "gun" referencing the delineation between a cannon, that of a caliber higher than 20 millimeters—and gun—within certain ranges.

From the outside, the construction is noticeable because the walls are made of glass from floor to ceiling. The tension is further increased because the upper part of the tower is wider than the lower part. The façade itself consists of a double skin: an outer skin of glass and then 60 inches wide ventilated cavity and finally the inner skin of double glazing. Source: Mimoa

    [88] 29/07/2012 - Dernière modification le 09/09/2020 From the steamy recesses of the southern swamps comes a figure cloaked in mystery. The Necromancer, as his name implies, is an unseemly form of sorcerer whose spells deal with the raising of the dead and the summoning and control of various creatures for his purposes. Though his goals are often aligned with those of the forces of Light, some do not think that these ends can justify his foul means. Long hours of study in dank mausolea have made his skin pale and corpselike, his figure, skeletal. Most people shun him for his peculiar looks and ways, but none doubt the power of the Necromancer, for it is the stuff of nightmares.

    [90] 04/08/2012 - Dernière modification le 02/09/2020 Fomes fomentarius (commonly known as the tinder fungus, false tinder fungus, hoof fungus, tinder conk, tinder polypore or ice man fungus) is a species of fungal plant pathogen found in Europe, Asia, Africa and North America. The species produces very large polypore fruit bodies which are shaped like a horse's hoof and vary in colour from a silvery grey to almost black, though they are normally brown. It grows on the side of various species of tree, which it infects through broken bark, causing rot. The species typically continues to live on trees long after they have died, changing from a parasite to a decomposer. Though inedible, F. fomentarius has traditionally seen use as the main ingredient of amadou, a material used primarily as tinder, but also used to make clothing and other items. The 5,000-year-old Ötzi the Iceman carried four pieces of F. fomentarius, concluded to be for use as tinder. It also has medicinal and other uses. The species is both a pest and useful in timber production. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    [92] 05/10/2012 - Dernière modification le 27/08/2020 In the electric arc furnace process, the cold metallic charge, mainly scrap, is melted by the energy of electric arcs generated between the tips of graphite electrodes and the conductive metallic charge. The three electrodes and the furnace roof are raised and swung away from the furnace shell to allow the charging of scrap. The electrodes maintain the arc in accordance with the voltage and current level selected to produce the desired power input at the desired arc length for melting and refining. As the noise generated by the arcs is high during the melt-in-period, with levels up to 120 dBA, special protection is provided to the operators cabin and the furnace has a special enclosure.

Location: Lichtplein About the project: On the Lichtplein forty identical African masks are installed. The masks originate from the Bwindi National Park in Uganda, near the border with Congo. Once the first tones are played, the masks slowly light up. Colorful light can be seen through the openings for eyes and mouth, but also on a large projection screen that is prepared behind the masks. Small changes in exposure have a great visual impact. The show resembles most a magical ritual. What we hear is the composition Legend of the Bulgarian women's choir Angelite in cooperation with the overtone singers Huun Huur Tu from the Russian republic of Tuva. What light, singing and traditional masks have in common is that all components play a role in religious ceremonies. In countries and cultures all around the world, they are seen as a connection between the earthly and the heavenly or the supernatural. In this performance Richi Ferrero connects their symbolism and expressiveness. www.richiferrero.it More information: www.gloweindhoven.nl It was my prefered animation, and the music was really amazing.

    [107] 26/08/2020 - Dernière modification le 07/09/2020 The Antonov An-24 (Ukrainian: Антонов Ан-24) (NATO reporting name: Coke) is a 44-seat twin turboprop transport/passenger aircraft designed in 1957 and manufactured in the Soviet Union by the Antonov Design Bureau. Design and development First flown in 1959, over 1,000 An-24s were built and 880 are still in service worldwide, mostly in the CIS and Africa, with a total of 297 Antonov An-24 aircraft in airline service, as of May 2010. It was designed to replace the veteran piston Ilyushin Il-14 transport on short to medium haul trips, optimised for operating from rough strips and unprepared airports in remote locations. The high-wing layout protects engines and blades from debris, the power-to-weight ratio is higher than that of many comparable aircraft and the machine is rugged, requiring minimal ground support equipment. Due to its rugged airframe and good performance, the An-24 was adapted to carry out many secondary missions such as ice reconnaissance and engine/propeller test-bed, as well as further development to produce the An-26 tactical transport, An-30 photo-mapping/survey aircraft and An-32 tactical transport with more powerful engines. Various projects were envisaged such as a four jet short/medium haul airliner and various iterations of powerplant. The main production line was at the Kiev-Svyatoshino (now "Aviant") aircraft production plant which built 985, with 180 built at Ulan Ude and a further 197 An-24T tactical transport/freighters at Irkutsk. Production in the USSR was shut down by 1978. Production continues at China's Xi'an Aircraft Industrial Corporation which makes licenced, reverse-engineered and redesigned aircraft as the Xian [Yunshuji] Y7, and its derivatives. Manufacture of the Y7, in civil form, has now been supplanted by the MA60 derivative with western engines and avionics, to improve performance and economy, and widen the export appeal.

  • Biplane Antonov An-2 and Antonov An-12
    https://www.gaudry.be > Photography > Gallery
    [108] 09/08/2020 - Dernière modification le 29/08/2020 The biplane at the front is the Antonov An-2 (Антонов Ан-2); at the right rear, lays the Antonov-12. The aircraft on the left is probably a Tupolev Tu-154. The Antonov An-2 (Russian nickname: "Annushka" or "Annie") is a single-engine biplane utility/agricultural aircraft designed in the USSR in 1946. (USAF/DoD reporting name Type 22, NATO reporting name Colt.). Combat service The An-2 was used by combat services in the Korean War[citation needed]. During the 1960s an An-2 attempting to engage South Vietnamese naval units was shot down by an F-4 Phantom II under the control of an Air Intercept Controller (AIC) on the USS Long Beach. On January 12, 1968, a clandestine TACAN site (call sign: Laos Site 85/Phou Pha Ti) installed by Special Forces (United States Army) in Northern Laos for directing USAF warplanes flying from Thailand to Vietnam was attacked by two North Vietnamese An-2s using machine guns fired from the cabin, rockets, and hand thrown grenades. A third An-2 orbited overhead. An Air America Bell UH-1B, XW-PHF, resupplying the site chased the two attacking aircraft. By using an AK-47 the American crew (Ted Moore Captain, Glen Wood kicker) succeeded in shooting down one of the An-2s while the second aircraft was forced down by combined ground and air fire and crashed into a mountain. The surviving Antonov returned to its home base, Gia Lam, near Hanoi. During the Croatian War of Independence in 1991, a few old Antonov An-2 biplanes used for crop-spraying were converted by the Croatian Air Force to drop makeshift bombs and were used in supply missions to the town of Vukovar and other besieged parts of Croatia. The chief advantage for the An-2 was that they could take off and land in small or improvised airstrips. They were also used to drop supplies by parachute on isolated garrisons. At least one was shot down on 2 December 1991 over Vinkovci, eastern Slavonia, by Serbian SAM missiles, purportedly SA-6s. Source: Wikipedia The Antonov An-12 (NATO reporting name: Cub) is a four-engined turboprop transport aircraft designed in the Soviet Union. It is the military version of the Antonov An-10 and was made in many variants.

    [109] 06/09/2020 - Dernière modification le 12/09/2020 The Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-21 (Russian: Микоян и Гуревич МиГ-21; NATO reporting name: Fishbed) is a supersonic jet fighter aircraft, designed by the Mikoyan-Gurevich Design Bureau in the Soviet Union. It was popularly nicknamed "Balalaika", from the aircraft's planform-view resemblance to the Russian stringed musical instrument or ołówek (English: pencil) by Polish pilots due to the shape of its fuselage. Early versions are considered second-generation jet fighters, while later versions are considered to be third-generation jet fighters. Some 50 countries over four continents have flown the MiG-21, and it still serves many nations a half-century after its maiden flight. The fighter made aviation records. At least by name, it is the most-produced supersonic jet aircraft in aviation history and the most-produced combat aircraft since the Korean War, and it had the longest production run of a combat aircraft (1959 to 1985 over all variants).

    [110] 31/08/2020 - Dernière modification le 09/09/2020 The Aero L-29 Delfín (English: Dolphin, NATO reporting name: Maya) is a military jet trainer aircraft that became the standard jet trainer for the air forces of Warsaw Pact nations in the 1960s. It was Czechoslovakia's first locally designed and built jet aircraft. The Delfin served in basic, intermediate and weapons training roles. For this latter mission, they were equipped with hardpoints to carry gunpods, bombs or rockets, and thus armed, Egyptian L-29s were sent into combat against Israeli tanks during the Yom Kippur War. The L-29 was supplanted in the inventory of many of its operators by the Aero L-39 Albatros. More than 2,000 L-29s were supplied to the Soviet Air Force, acquiring the NATO reporting name "Maya." L-29's, along with the newer L-39,were used extensively in ground attack missions in the Nagorno-Karabakh War by Azeri forces. At least 14 were shot down by Armenian air-defences. As a trainer, the L-29 enabled air forces to adopt an "all-through" training on jet aircraft, replacing earlier piston-engined types. On July 16, 1975, a Czechoslovak Air Force L-29 shot down a Polish civilian biplane piloted by Dionizy Bielański that was attempting to defect to the West. On October 2, 2007, an unmodified L-29 was used for the world’s first jet flight powered solely by 100% biodiesel fuel. Pilots Carol Sugars and Douglas Rodante flew their Delphin Jet from Stead Airport, Reno, Nevada to Leesburg International Airport, Leesburg, Florida in order to promote environmentally friendly fuels in aviation. Between September 10–14, 2008, two L-29s took first and second at the Reno Air Races. Both L-29s consistently posted laps at or above 500 miles per hour. Former Astronaut Curt Brown took first in "Viper," followed by Red Bull Racer Mike Mangold in "Euroburner." Russia says it destroyed 2 Georgian L-29s during the 2008 South Ossetia war.

  • Mil Mi-2 and Aero L-29 Delfin
    https://www.gaudry.be > Photography > Gallery
    [111] 18/08/2020 - Dernière modification le 03/09/2020 The Mil Mi-2 (NATO reporting name Hoplite) is a small, lightly armored turbine-powered transport helicopter that could also provide close air support when armed with 57 mm rockets and a 23 mm cannon. Design and development The Mi-2 was produced exclusively in Poland, in the WSK "PZL-Świdnik" factory in Świdnik. The first production helicopter in the Soviet Union was the Mil Mi-1, modelled along the lines of the S-51 and Bristol Sycamore and flown by Mikhail Mil's bureau in September 1948. During the 1950s it became evident, and confirmed by American and French development, that helicopters could be greatly improved with turbine engines. S. P. Isotov developed the GTD-350 engine and Mil used two of these in the far superior Mi-2. The twin shaft-turbine engines used in the Mi-2 develop 40% more power than the Mi-1's piston engines, for barely half the engine weight, with the result that the payload was more than doubled. The Mi-2 fuselage was extensively altered from its predecessor, with the engines mounted overhead. However, the external dimensions remained similar. After initial development at the Mil bureau (Soviet designation V-2) the project was transferred to Poland in 1964, after the first Świdnik-built example had flown (making this the only Soviet-designed helicopter to be built solely outside the Soviet Union). PZL-Świdnik produced a total of 5,497 units, about a third for military users. The factory also developed fiberglass rotor blades, and developed the wide-body Mi-2M seating 10 passengers instead of eight. Most typical kits include four stretchers for air ambulance usage, or aerospraying or cropdusting applications. In Poland, there were also developed several specialized military variants for support or reconnaissance roles, with 23 mm autocannon, machine guns and/or two 57 mm rocket pods, four 9K11 Malyutka anti-tank missiles or Strela-2 AA missiles. Operational history The Mi-2 was first introduced into the Soviet Air Force in 1965. The Mi-2 is used by mainly former Soviet and Eastern Bloc countries, although it was also purchased by Mexico and Myanmar armed forces. Most of the armed Mi-2 variants were used by Poland. Some were also used by the former East Germany (with machine gun and unguided rocket armament only). North Korea still maintains a large active fleet of Mi-2s.

  • Jagdpanzer Kanone Jpz 4-53
    https://www.gaudry.be > Photography > Gallery
    [112] 21/08/2020 - Dernière modification le 04/09/2020 Kanonenjagdpanzer The Kanonenjagdpanzer 4 - 5 (also known as Jagdpanzer Kanone 90mm, or tank destroyer, gun) was a German Cold War tank destroyer equipped with a 90mm anti-tank gun from obsolete M47 Patton tanks. Its design was very similar to that of the World War II Jagdpanzer IV. History The first prototypes of the Kanonenjagdpanzer were built in 1960 by Hanomag and Henschel for West Germany and by MOWAG for Switzerland. Hanomag and Henschel continued to produce prototypes, until between 1966 and 1967, 770 were built for the Bundeswehr, 385 by Hanomag and 385 by Henschel. Eighty of them were delivered to Belgium from April 1975 onward. When the Soviets began deploying their T-64 and T-72 main battle tanks, the 90 mm gun wasn't capable of ensuring long-range combat and the Kanonenjagdpanzer became obsolete. Although the producers claimed it could be rearmed with a 105 mm gun, between 1983 and 1985, 163 of these tank destroyers were converted into Raketenjagdpanzer Jaguar 2 anti-tank guided missile carriers by removing the gun, adding a roof-mounted TOW missile launcher and fastening further spaced and perforated armour on the hull. Some others were refitted by removing the main gun into artillery observation vehicles, so called Beobachtungspanzer, which served most particularly in the mortar units. Some Kanonenjagdpanzer remained into service with the Heimatschutztruppe until 1990. Design The Kanonenjagdpanzer was a highly mobile vehicle, its survivability based on its mobility and its low profile. Its hull consisted of welded steel, which had a maximum thickness of only 50 mm. It carried a crew of four, a commander, driver, gunner and a loader. Since the Kanonenjagdpanzer followed the casemate design of most World War II tank destroyers, the gun was fixed within the casemate, located a little right from the center. The 90 mm gun could only traverse 15° to the sides and elevate from -8° to +15°. It carried 51 90 mm rounds for the main gun and 4000 7,62 mm rounds for the two MG3s. The Kanonenjagdpanzer had NBC protection and night-fighting ability. Source : Wikipedia In the left background, we can see a GFM cloche made by Cockerill in the year 1935. It was a fixed and non-retractable firing position made of a 20 tons thick iron casting which shielded its occupant. GFM is an acronym for Guetteur et Fusil-Mitrailleur, (lookout and rifle-machine-gunner), which describes its purpose as a lookout and firing position for light weapons.

    [113] 18/08/2020 - Dernière modification le 03/09/2020 M75, armored personnel carrier The M75 is an American armored personnel carrier that was produced between December 1952 and February 1954, and saw service in the Korean War. It was replaced in U.S. service by the smaller, cheaper, amphibious M59. The M75s were given as military aid to Belgium, where they were used until the early 1980s. 1,729 M75s were built before production was halted. Description The M75 has a welded steel hull, which varies in thickness from 1 inch (2.5 cm) to 1.5 inches (3.8 cm) with a line of sight thickness on the front hull of between 1.6 inches (4 cm) and 2 inches (5 cm). Fully loaded, the vehicle weighed approximately 42,000 pounds (19,051 kg). The M75 has an almost identical layout to later U.S. armored personnel carriers: the driver sits in the front left of the hull, with the air-cooled six-cylinder horizontally opposed Continental AO-895-4 gasoline engine to his right. The driver is provided with an M19 infra-red night vision periscope in later models and four M17 periscopes. Behind the driver and engine, in the center of the vehicle, sits the commander, who is provided with six vision blocks around his hatch. The commander has a cupola that was normally fitted with an M2 machine gun, for which 1,800 rounds were carried in the vehicle. The infantry sat behind the commander in a large compartment. Additionally, an M20 Super Bazooka was carried along with 10 rockets, and 180 rounds of ammunition for an M1 or M2 carbine. The engine developed a maximum of around 295 horsepower (220 kW) at 2,660 rpm, giving the vehicle a top speed of 43 mph (69 km/h). The vehicle carried 150 US gallons (568 L) of gasoline, giving it a road range of around 115 miles (185 km). It has five road wheels and three return rollers on each side. Source : Wikipedia

  • Kiskirálylány

    [114] 03/08/2013 - Dernière modification le 10/09/2020 The original 50 cm statuette of the Little Princess (Kiskirálylány) statue sitting on the railings of the Danube promenade in Budapest, Hungary was created by László Marton (1925-2008) Munkácsy- and Kossuth Prize-winning sculptor in 1972. The artist was inspired by his eldest daughter born from his first marriage. She often played in the Tabán wearing a princess costume and a crown made out of newspaper by her father, and at home as well, pretending her bathrobes were a mantle. This image prompted her father, the artist in the creation of this little statue. László Marton writes: " Évike born from my first marriage, at the age of 5, was playing in a little princess costume in the Tabán playground. When I saw it, I immediately had the subject matter. Titled "Little Princess" I sculpted it as well. It was placed in an elegant location on the Danube promenade. Became a symbol of Budapest." "I modeled it after my own daughter - says László Marton in his studio (2007) - she was maybe six years old and playing in the garden. She dressed as a princess: laid a bathrobe on her shoulders and put a crown on her head. I managed to capture this moment and immediately felt that this was a successful work of art. Years later, the capital requested a statue from me. I immediately thought of the "Little Princess" and luckily we managed to find the place where the statue feels good." A larger size copy of this statue was placed on the Danube promenade in 1990, and a second copy in Tapolca, the artist's hometown. A copy of the same statue stands in Japan too - donated by the artist - in front of the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Space cultural center's concert hall. The original statuette (1972) is owned by Hungarian National Gallery. Source: Wikipedia The picture is very badly framed. I wished to have the statue to the left of the image and the Buda Castle on the right. This would have further expanded in the direction of the gaze of the statue, but I had to right a very large group of tourists who had decided to camp on site and jen did not have time to wait for them to leave .

It was designed and built between 1895 and 1902 on the plans of Frigyes Schulek. Between 1947–48, the son of Frigyes Schulek, János Schulek, conducted the other restoration project after its near destruction during World War II. From the towers and the terrace a panoramic view exists of Danube, Margaret Island, Pest to the east and the Gellért Hill. Its seven towers represent the seven Magyar tribes that settled in the Carpathian Basin in 896. The Bastion takes its name from the guild of fishermen that was responsible for defending this stretch of the city walls in the Middle Ages. It is a viewing terrace, with many stairs and walking paths. A bronze statue of Stephen I of Hungary mounted on a horse, erected in 1906, can be seen between the Bastion and the Matthias Church. The pedestal was made by Alajos Stróbl, based on the plans of Frigyes Schulek, in Neo-Romanesque style, with episodes illustrating the King's life. It was featured as a Pit Stop on the sixth season of The Amazing Race. Source: Wikipedia

References to healing waters in this location are found from as early as the 13th century. A hospital was located on this site during the Middle Ages. During the reign of the Ottoman Empire, baths were also built on this particular site. The "magical healing spring" used the Turkish during the 16th and 17th centuries. The bath was called Sárosfürdő ("muddy” bath), because the mineral mud settled at the bottom of pools.

It is the largest synagogue in Europe and the fifth largest in the world. It seats 3,000 people and is a centre of Neolog Judaism. The synagogue was built between 1854 and 1859 in the Moorish Revival style, with the decoration based chiefly on Islamic models from North Africa and medieval Spain (the Alhambra). The synagogue's Viennese architect, Ludwig Förster, believed that no distinctively Jewish architecture could be identified, and thus chose "architectural forms that have been used by oriental ethnic groups that are related to the Israelite people, and in particular the Arabs". The interior design is partly by Frigyes Feszl. The Dohány Street Synagogue complex consists of the Great Synagogue, the Heroes' Temple, the graveyard, the Holocaust memorial and the Jewish Museum, which was built on the site on which Theodore Herzl's house of birth once stood. Dohány Street itself, a leafy street in the city center, carries strong Holocaust connotations as it constituted the border of the Budapest Ghetto. History Built in a residential area between 1854-1859 by the Neolog Jewish community of Pest according to the plans of Ludwig Förster, the monumental synagogue has a capacity of 2,964 seats (1,492 for men and 1,472 in the women's galleries) making it the largest in Europe and one of the largest working synagogue in the World, after the Belz Great Synagogue and the Beit Midrash of Ger in Jerusalem, the Breslov Uman Synagogue in Uman, Ukraine, Temple Emanu-el in New York City, and the Yetev Lev D'Satmar synagogue in New York City. The consecration of the synagogue took place on 6 September 1859. The synagogue was bombed by the Hungarian pro-Nazi Arrow Cross Party on 3 February 1939. Used as a base for German Radio and also as a stable during World War II, the building suffered some severe damage from aerial raids during the Nazi Occupation but especially during the Siege of Budapest. During the Communist era the damaged structure became again a prayer house for the much-diminished Jewish community. Its restoration started in 1991 and ended in 1998. The restoration was financed by the state and by private donations. Exterior The building is 75 metres (246 ft) long and 27 metres (89 ft) wide. The style of the Dohány Street Synagogue is Moorish but its design also features a mixture of Byzantine, Romantic and Gothic elements. Two onion-shaped domes sit on the twin octogonal towers at 43 metres (141 ft) height. A rose stained-glass window sits over the main entrance. Similarly to basilicas, the building consists of three spacious richly decorated aisles, two balconies and, unusually, an organ. Its ark contains various torah scrolls taken from other synagogues destroyed during the Holocaust. The Central Synagogue in Manhattan, New York City is a near-exact copy of the Dohány Street Synagogue.

A single-span cast iron supports the 12-metre-wide (39 ft) nave. The seats on the ground-floor are for men, while the upper gallery, supported by steel ornamented poles, has seats for women. Franz Liszt and Camille Saint-Saëns played the original 5,000 pipe organ built in 1859. A new mechanical organ with 63 voices and 4 manuals was built in 1996 by the German firm Jehmlich Orgelbau Dresden GmbH. One of the most daring concerts in the Synagogue's history was in 2002, played by the legendary organ virtuoso Xaver Varnus. Four hours before the concert even standing places could hardly be found in the Synagogue, and 7,200 people were sitting and standing to listen to the legendary improvisor’s fiendish virtuosity.

Its water is supplied by two thermal springs, their temperature is 74 °C (165 °F) and 77 °C (171 °F), respectively. Components of the thermal water include sulphate, calcium, magnesium, bicarbonate and a significant amount of fluoride acid and metaboric acid. Medical indications are on degenerative joint illnesses, chronic and sub-acute joint inflammations, as well as orthopaedic and traumatological post-treatments. History The bath can be found in the City Park, and was built in 1913 in Neo-baroque style to the design of Győző Czigler. The construction of the bath began on 7 May 1909. Designed by architect Eugene Schmitterer, The bath, named in the news as the Artesian spa, opened on 16 June 1913. The name of bath had been Széchenyi spa. The pool construction cost approximately 3.9 million Austro-Hungarian korona. The built-up area was 6,220 square meter. The attendance of spa was in excess of 200,000 people in 1913. (This number was already 890,507 in 1919). At that time it had private baths, separate men and women steam-bath sections, and different men / women "public baths". The complex was expanded in 1927, and it still has 3 outdoor and 15 indoor pools. After its expansion, the thermal artesian well could not fulfill its purpose, so a new well was drilled. The second thermal spring was found in 1938. The depth of the thermal spring is 1256m, the temperature is 77 °C and it supplies 6.000.000 litres (1 585 032 US gallons) of hot water daily. Between 1999 and 2009 the full reformation of the Széchenyi thermal bath took place within the confines of a blanket reconstruction. Main swimming and thermal sections are possible to visit mixed. The bath was named after István Széchenyi. Units In the baths there are pools of varying temperature. The outdoor pools (swimming pool, adventure pool and thermal sitting pool) are 27- 38°C.

    https://www.gaudry.be > Photography > Gallery
    [123] 05/08/2013 - Dernière modification le 29/08/2020 Hungarian State Opera House The Hungarian State Opera House (Hungarian: Magyar Állami Operaház) is a neo-Renaissance opera house located in central Budapest, on Andrássy út. It is home to the Budapest Opera Ball, a society event dating back to 1886. Before the closure of "Népszínház" in Budapest, it was the second largest opera building in Budapest. Today it is the largest Opera building in Budapest and Hungary. History Designed by Miklós Ybl, a major figure of 19th century Hungarian architecture, the construction lasted from 1875 to 1884 and was funded by the city of Budapest and by Emperor Franz Joseph of Austria-Hungary. The Hungarian Royal Opera House (as it was known then) opened to the public on the September 27, 1884. Many important artists were guests here including Gustav Mahler the composer who was director in Budapest from 1887 to 1891 and Otto Klemperer who was music director for three years from 1947 to 1950. In the 1970s the state of the building prompted the Hungarian State to order a major renovation which eventually began in 1980 and lasted till 1984. The reopening was held exactly 100 years after the original opening, on the September 27, 1984. Overview It is a richly-decorated building and is considered one of the architect's masterpieces. It was built in neo-Renaissance style, with elements of Baroque. Ornamentation includes paintings and sculptures by leading figures of Hungarian art including Bertalan Székely, Mór Than and Károly Lotz. Although in size and capacity it is not among the greatest, in beauty and the quality of acoustics the Budapest Opera House is considered to be amongst the finest opera houses in the world. The auditorium holds 1261 seats. It is horseshoe shaped and – according to measurements done in the 1970s by a group of international engineers – has the third best acoustics in Europe after La Scala in Milan and the Palais Garnier in Paris. Although many opera houses have been built since, the Budapest Opera House is still among the best in terms of the acoustics. In front of the building are statues of Ferenc Erkel and Franz Liszt. Liszt is the best known Hungarian composer. Erkel composed the Hungarian national anthem, and was the first music director of the Opera House; he was also founder of the Budapest Philharmonic Orchestra. Each year the season lasts from September to the end of June and besides opera performances the Opera House is home to the Hungarian National Ballet. The secondary building of the Hungarian State Opera is Erkel theatre. It is a much larger building that also hosts opera and ballet performances during the opera season. There are guided tours in the building in six languages (English, German, Spanish, French, Italian and Hungarian) almost every day.

  • Magyar Állami Operaház [16mm version]
    https://www.gaudry.be > Photography > Gallery
    [124] 05/08/2013 - Dernière modification le 29/08/2020 Hungarian State Opera House The Hungarian State Opera House (Hungarian: Magyar Állami Operaház) is a neo-Renaissance opera house located in central Budapest, on Andrássy út. It is home to the Budapest Opera Ball, a society event dating back to 1886. Before the closure of "Népszínház" in Budapest, it was the second largest opera building in Budapest. Today it is the largest Opera building in Budapest and Hungary. History Designed by Miklós Ybl, a major figure of 19th century Hungarian architecture, the construction lasted from 1875 to 1884 and was funded by the city of Budapest and by Emperor Franz Joseph of Austria-Hungary. The Hungarian Royal Opera House (as it was known then) opened to the public on the September 27, 1884. Many important artists were guests here including Gustav Mahler the composer who was director in Budapest from 1887 to 1891 and Otto Klemperer who was music director for three years from 1947 to 1950. In the 1970s the state of the building prompted the Hungarian State to order a major renovation which eventually began in 1980 and lasted till 1984. The reopening was held exactly 100 years after the original opening, on the September 27, 1984. Overview It is a richly-decorated building and is considered one of the architect's masterpieces. It was built in neo-Renaissance style, with elements of Baroque. Ornamentation includes paintings and sculptures by leading figures of Hungarian art including Bertalan Székely, Mór Than and Károly Lotz. Although in size and capacity it is not among the greatest, in beauty and the quality of acoustics the Budapest Opera House is considered to be amongst the finest opera houses in the world. The auditorium holds 1261 seats. It is horseshoe shaped and – according to measurements done in the 1970s by a group of international engineers – has the third best acoustics in Europe after La Scala in Milan and the Palais Garnier in Paris. Although many opera houses have been built since, the Budapest Opera House is still among the best in terms of the acoustics. In front of the building are statues of Ferenc Erkel and Franz Liszt. Liszt is the best known Hungarian composer. Erkel composed the Hungarian national anthem, and was the first music director of the Opera House; he was also founder of the Budapest Philharmonic Orchestra. Each year the season lasts from September to the end of June and besides opera performances the Opera House is home to the Hungarian National Ballet. The secondary building of the Hungarian State Opera is Erkel theatre. It is a much larger building that also hosts opera and ballet performances during the opera season. There are guided tours in the building in six languages (English, German, Spanish, French, Italian and Hungarian) almost every day.

It lies in Lajos Kossuth Square, on the bank of the Danube. It is currently the largest building in Hungary and still the tallest building in Budapest. History Budapest was united from three cities in 1873 and seven years later the diet resolved to establish a new, representative Parliament Building, expressing the sovereignty of the nation. An international competition was held, and Imre Steindl emerged as the victor; the plans of two other competitors were later also realized in the form of the Ethnographical Museum and the Hungarian Ministry of Agriculture, both of which face the Parliament Building. Construction from the winning plan was started in 1885 and the building was inaugurated on the 1000th anniversary of the country in 1896, and completed in 1904. (The architect of the building went blind before its completion.) About one thousand people were involved in construction, during which 40 million bricks, half a million precious stones and 40 kilograms (88 lb) of gold were used. After World War II the diet became single-chambered and today the government uses only a small portion of the building. During the communist regime a red star perched on the top of the dome, but was removed in 1990. Mátyás Szűrös declared the Hungarian Republic from the balcony facing Lajos Kossuth Square on 23 October 1989.

    https://www.gaudry.be > Photography > Gallery
    [129] 07/08/2020 - Dernière modification le 28/08/2020 Cellulose acetate film, or safety film, is used in photography as a base material for photographic emulsions. It was introduced in the early 20th century by film manufacturers as a safe film base replacement for unstable and highly flammable nitrate film. Beginning with cellulose diacetate in 1909, this innovation continued with cellulose acetate propionate and cellulose acetate butyrate in the 1930s, and finally in the late 1940s, cellulose triacetate was introduced, alongside polyester bases. These less flammable substitutes for nitrate film were called safety film. The motion picture industry continued to use cellulose nitrate supports until the introduction of cellulose triacetate in 1948, which met the rigorous safety and performance standards set by the cinematographic industry. The chemical instability of cellulose nitrate material, unrecognized at the time of its introduction, has since become a major threat for film collections. Decay and the "vinegar syndrome" The first instance of cellulose triacetate degradation was reported to the Eastman Kodak Company within a decade of its introduction in 1948. The first report came from the Government of India, whose film was stored in hot, humid conditions. It was followed by further reports of degradation from collections stored in similar conditions. These observations resulted in continuing studies in the Kodak laboratories during the 1960s. Beginning in the 1980s, there was a great deal of focus upon film stability following frequent reports of cellulose triacetate degradation. This material releases acetic acid, the key ingredient in vinegar and responsible for its acidic smell. The problem became known as the "vinegar syndrome." Source: Wikipedia

Artist: Ivo Schoofs Location: Stationsplein About the project: Think maths and physics are boring? The Large Pendulum Wave proves the opposite! This installation – almost seven metres high – is proof that mathematical and physical principles are able to generate superbly lyrical images. Large Pendulum Wave consists of a frame to which fifteen pendulums are attached, each culminating in an illuminated sphere. The pendulums are of different lengths, generating random patterns. Continuous waves become groups of pendulums ‘dancing’ at different tempos, which eventually descend into an apparent chaos. A little later, and the spheres suddenly seem to resume an orderly, harmonious pattern. Not only the movement of the spheres, but the colour of their light, changes with an extraordinary sequencing. Together, the movements offer a dazzling spectacle. Ivo Schoofs and his team aim to bring science closer to the general public, with installations based on familiar phenomena and that are a delight to the eye. Source: gloweindhoven

Artist: Starsky Location: Beursgebouw About the project: The Austrian artist starsky is a master of all things to do with light. She creates light installations and large-scale projections, and provides the lighting for concerts and theatre productions, often as a VJ. In her work, she integrates language, graphic elements, moving image and film. Her goal is to use these ingredients to create a true total work of art. At the Beursgebouw, her installation is a projection that blurs the boundaries between the real and the fantastic. She plays with the relationship between architecture and the environment, with people’s movements in public space, and with the proportions of the human body, using these elements to create an ‘in between’ world - The Third Element. Now and then a hand appears that brushes away the generated images or turns them as if they were a page in a book, to reveal yet another image. What arises is a journey through imaginary worlds in which, from time to time, we discover a hint of the familiar. Music made possible by Spice. Source: gloweindhoven

Artist: Yoav Chomsky and Nisan Gelbard Location: Clausplein About the project: Yoav Chomsky grew up in rural Israel, among orchards and wide fields. The beauty of nature never ceases to amaze him, and the continuous change that goes hand in hand with growth, decay and the cycle of the seasons. These experiences defined his work as an artist. During GLOW, he presents Zinorot, a work that premiered last year in Jerusalem. Thousands of slender light threads are attached to an ingenious construction of metal tubes. Together they form a tree that has scrabbled its way out of the earth to reach a towering six meters in height. The lights are programmed to illuminate different parts of the tree in random sequence, making the branches appear to move, reaching upward towards another part of the heavens. The changing lighting is precisely in sync with the rhythm of the accompanying music, creating a breath-taking visual display, with an ever-changing chromatic spectrum. Source: gloweindhoven

Together with Lorenzo Pompei of Laser Entertainment, a company that creates laser and multimedial shows, he has developed the GreenPower Lagoon Monster. The work was first unveiled in Venice. The first patron saint of Venice was St. Theodore of Amasea, a Byzantine warrior who, legend has it, killed a dragon that was terrorising the town of Amasea. The story can be read as a metaphor for the victory of good over evil. During GLOW, this legend is brought to life in a completely fresh, new way. The dragon appears as a terrifying sea monster, rising up out of the waters of the Eindhoven canal. Only now, it isn’t St. Theodore of Amasea who vanquishes the dragon, but the technology of Davide Carioni and Lorenzo Pompei.

    [142] 16/11/2013 - Dernière modification le 24/08/2020 Pop into the Puppet Theatre GLOW - International Forum of Light in Art and Architecture Eindhoven 2013 - 8th Edition - 'Urban Playground' From November, 9th to 16th 2013, the city center of Eindhoven turns again into a forum of interventions, installations, performances and events based on the phenomena of artificial light. Artist: Jolanda Tielens Location: Oude muur de Effenaar About the project: The arched windows of this old building are covered with canvas. A reminder that behind this façade there was once a canvas factory. Seen from the street, the cloth appears to be lit with a white light, but from the rear it’s obvious that the white light is actually a composite of red, green and blue. When someone walks into the pools of light from these spotlights, their shadow dissolves into spangles of colour. You realise that you can actually paint with light on this virginal white canvas. The people on the street enjoy a shadow theatre that, thanks to the arched décor, brings to mind old-fashioned puppet theatres. The spontaneous scenes played out here couldn’t be more at home; just a stone’s throw away is De Effenaar, a pop venue. Jolanda Tielens is fascinated by the capacity of light to affect our perceptions of a space and direct our behaviour. This is precisely what the artist is exploring with her light projections. Sometimes Tielens opts for inconspicuous lighting and sometimes, such as here, light is centre stage. Source: gloweindhoven

    [143] 16/11/2013 - Dernière modification le 02/09/2020 Tesseract GLOW - International Forum of Light in Art and Architecture Eindhoven 2013 - 8th Edition - 'Urban Playground' From November, 9th to 16th 2013, the city center of Eindhoven turns again into a forum of interventions, installations, performances and events based on the phenomena of artificial light. Artist: 1024 Architecture Location: Kanaalstraat About the project: In mathematics, the tesseract is the four-dimensional version of the cube. What the square is to the cube, the cube is the tesseract. The French collective 1024 architecture uses light to bring to life this dynamic shape. Scores of projectors mounted in an open scaffold construction are able to turn in any direction. Within the cube shape, the spotlights evoke a futuristic world. The work of 1024 architecture is in fact no longer sculpture but motion itself: an ever-evolving state of shape and space of which the spectator is a part. The installation offers us a new way of seeing the urban environment and literally invests everyday reality with an extra dimension. Like the cube, all the fixed shapes are translated into a fourth dimension. And how would the world look then? Source: gloweindhoven

    [144] 16/11/2013 - Dernière modification le 25/08/2020 GreenPower Lagoon Monster GLOW - International Forum of Light in Art and Architecture Eindhoven 2013 - 8th Edition - 'Urban Playground' From November, 9th to 16th 2013, the city center of Eindhoven turns again into a forum of interventions, installations, performances and events based on the phenomena of artificial light. Artist: Davide Carioni & Lorenzo Pompei Location: Kop van het kanaal About the project: Davide Carioni, also known as “Asker”, is a graphic designer, painter, graffiti artist and media artist. Together with Lorenzo Pompei of Laser Entertainment, a company that creates laser and multimedial shows, he has developed the GreenPower Lagoon Monster. The work was first unveiled in Venice. The first patron saint of Venice was St. Theodore of Amasea, a Byzantine warrior who, legend has it, killed a dragon that was terrorising the town of Amasea. The story can be read as a metaphor for the victory of good over evil. During GLOW, this legend is brought to life in a completely fresh, new way. The dragon appears as a terrifying sea monster, rising up out of the waters of the Eindhoven canal. Only now, it isn’t St. Theodore of Amasea who vanquishes the dragon, but the technology of Davide Carioni and Lorenzo Pompei.

Artist: Patrice Warrener Location: Villa De Laak, Dommelhoef About the project: French-born Patrice Warrener has become world famous for the way in which he illuminates buildings. From Belgium to Singapore, from Japan to the United Arab Emirates: everywhere he goes, he turns the world into a book of fairy-tale images. Warrener uses projectors able to project coloured light onto the facades of buildings with enormous precision. The tiniest architectural details are highlighted and bathed in such a bright colour that they appear freshly painted. In 1989, Warrener filed, and obtained, a patent for the technique He has worked on the method ever since, refining it to create spectacles, each more vibrant and imposing than the last, in each place he visits. For GLOW, he puts Villa de Laak in the limelight. In the glow of his illumination, the monumental buildings lining the Nachtegaallaan almost look like sugared almonds. The surrounding gardens are also lit up. The buildings constantly change colour, to the accompaniment of evocative sounds Source: gloweindhoven

Artist: Luminauten Location: Gracht Dommelstraat About the project: A sea of flowers, luminous water lilies of smaller clusters gathering about larger ones, fills the canal along the Dommelstraat. At their centre floats a giant flower, a floral queen reigning over her entourage. When all is tranquil, the water lilies gradually change colour and the larger flowers give off glimmers of light. The flowers react to each other, and seem to communicate. If the peace of the water lilies is disturbed by a camera flash, the flowers react quite violently. The larger specimens blink brightly, as if to protect the colony. The smaller water lilies retreat into the darkness to recover their composure, after which they reappear. Water Lily Nation hammers home the point that the camera cannot register everything. If you want to observe the ‘natural’ behaviour of these aquatic flowers, you need to be patient, watch closely, and imprint them on your memory. Source: gloweindhoven

  • Devoxx 2014 - Probably, Definitely, Maybe
    https://www.gaudry.be > Photography > Gallery
    [150] 12/11/2014 - Dernière modification le 28/08/2020 Probably, Definitely, Maybe We live in an uncertain world and we deal with this by considering possibilities and probabilities; from what movies you might be interested in to what diseases you might have given your symptoms. Without realising it people interact with systems that utilise probability on a daily basis. But what is probability, how to we measure and work with it? Given the wealth of big data collected how can we use that to predict the future? What if there is noise in the data? What if the data changes over time? To answer these questions we start with the fundamentals of probability theory before looking Bayesian systems (frequently a key part of recommendation and expert systems), Markov chains (useful in predicting human behaviour), and dynamic Bayesian networks (such as Kalman filters and hidden Markov chains which are often used in real-time systems like auto-pilot navigation). Along the way we'll try to demonstrate the mathematics using simple Java/Groovy examples. No knowledge of advanced mathematics is required! Source: DEVOXX

  • Devoxx 2014 - Thucydides is dead, long live Serenity
    https://www.gaudry.be > Photography > Gallery
    [151] 13/11/2014 - Dernière modification le 22/08/2020 ny modern web application today sports a rich and powerful user interface with sophisticated business logic built right in to the UI. The behaviour of the UI is an integral part of the user experience. For modern web applications, automated web tests are an essential part of your testing arsenal. But at the same time automated web testing is hard. Web tests can be fragile, and easily broken by small UI changes. They can be complex, and hard to trouble-shoot when something goes wrong. This session is a live coding demonstration using a live, real-world web site. We will be going from automated acceptance criteria using Cucumber-JVM and Thucydides to working automated acceptance tests and living documentation. You will learn: - When to write web tests, and when not to write them - Techniques to make your web tests easier to maintain and easier to update - Tips and tricks for automating modern, javascript-based web applications using Selenium 2/WebDriver.

    https://www.gaudry.be > Photography > Gallery
    [152] 06/09/2020 - Dernière modification le 12/09/2020 The Agfa Clack is a box camera produced by Agfa from 1954 to 1965. It was sold in North America as the Agfa Weekender. It is a simple camera which was aimed at the mass market. About 1.65 million were produced, more than all other Agfa box camera models combined. It uses 120 film, creating large 6x9 negatives that were usually contact printed (transferred directly from the negative onto photographic paper without enlarging). It has only one shutter speed, and, depending on model, either a single f/11 f-stop or a choice of two. Source: Wikipedia
