K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

I set the theme of Food for today’s edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, which was a spur of the moment decision and I didn’t really know what I’d do, although I did think it might be nice to include some movement in my contribution this week.

So I set up a makeshift studio in the kitchen with a tripod and my Stikbot stop motion app and started chopping. As it turned out, the vegetables had more personality than I originally thought.

First I made a couple of artistic compositions…

…followed by fifteen second stop frame animation which I was quite pleased with, but then I started mucking about with some effects and added a soundtrack by Krautrock guru Manuel Göttsching and it ended up as this one and a half minute masterpiece.

I’m sure K’lee will be cooking up something delicious for you HERE.

Now it’s time to share your cunningly captured culinary creations.


To get involved with the challenge, post a photo to your blog on Monday, add a pingback to this post (or to K’lee’s) and don’t forget to tag your post #CosPhoChal.

Alternatively, add a link to your blog in the comments of either mine or K’lee’s post and we’ll come and check out your entry.

Any and all effects, editing, Photoshop, Instagram, morphing, collages or whatever other post production techniques you fancy are permitted, (in fact, they’re actively encouraged!) so get creative and turn your photos into artworks for the Cosmic Photo Challenge.


Return of DJ Nobody.

To help take my mind off the stress and turmoil of the past few weeks, I’ve been mucking around with audio-visual gadgets again, to bring you two additions to my ever-expanding collection of psychedelic remix videos.

The first frenetic explosion of sound and colour is an unlikely collision between African rhythms and Balearic beats, mixing The Sahara All-Stars with Beat Connection, resulting in Take Your Balearic Trunk Soul Rhythm


Secondly, a more subtle reworking of a song by electronic music innovator and producer, Imogen Heap, the lovely Glittering Cloud, unimaginatively renamed by me as Stuttering Cloud.
