Ancient Mediterranean Piracy
It may be reasonable to assume that piracy has existed for as long as the oceans were plied for commerce. The earliest documented instances of piracy are the exploits of the Sea Peoples who threatened the Aegean and Mediterranean in the 13th century BC.[5] In Classical Antiquity, the Illyrians and Tyrrhenians were known as pirates, as well as Greeks and Romans. The island of Lemnos long resisted Greek influence and remained a haven for Thracian pirates. During their voyages the Phoenicians seem to have sometimes resorted to piracy, and specialized in kidnapping boys and girls to be sold as slaves.[6]

In the 3rd century BC, pirate attacks on Olympos (city in Anatolia) brought impoverishment. Among some of the most famous ancient pirateering peoples were the Illyrians, populating the western Balkan peninsula. Constantly raiding the Adriatic Sea, the Illyrians caused many conflicts with the Roman Republic. It was not until 168 BC when the Romans finally conquered Illyria, making it a province that ended their threat.

During the 1st century BC, there were pirate states along the Anatolian coast, threatening the commerce of the Roman Empire in the eastern Mediterranean. On one voyage across the Aegean Sea in 75 BC,[7] Julius Caesar was kidnapped by Cilician pirates and held prisoner in the Dodecanese islet of Pharmacusa.[8] He maintained an attitude of superiority and good cheer throughout his captivity. When the pirates decided to demand a ransom of twenty talents of gold, Caesar is said to have insisted that he was worth at least fifty, and the pirates indeed raised the ransom to fifty talents. After the ransom was paid and Caesar was released, he raised a fleet, pursued and captured the pirates, and had them put to death.

Glowing Cities Under a Nighttime Sky

Via Flickr:
On my night time flight back to SF from Amsterdam, I noticed that the lights from cities were making the clouds glow. Really spectacular and ethereal - it was really seeing the impact of urban environments from a different perspective. Each glow or squiggle represents one town or city!

Luckily the flight was half empty, so I was able to set up an improvised stabilizer mound made up of my bags, pillows, and blankets for my camera to sit on.

We were around the midwest at the beginning of the clip, and there were fewer cities once we hit the rockies. the bridge at the end is the san mateo bridge.

Technique: 1600iso; beginning - 1 (30sec) exposure / 45secs; end - 1 (4sec) exposure / 10 secs; total elapsed time: around 3 hours?

Equipment used: Nikon D300 (interval shooting mode), Tokina 12-24mm.

Music: Bloc Party - Signs

The Celebration of a Pop Destroyed Society

Via Flickr:
Articolo pubblicato sul quotidiano "Il Piccolo" di Trieste in data 9 agosto 2010 scritto da Corrado Premuda

Personale di Angelo Nairod al Knulp

il Piccolo — 09 agosto 2010 pagina 14 sezione: TRIESTE
Ragazzi androgini preoccupati di piacere a Babbo Natale, feste di compleanno consumate in vasca da bagno in compagnia di una torta, suore ciniche e assatanate, il tutto condito da un’esplosione di colori acidi e ambientazioni improbabili. Sono questi i primi elementi che colpiscono davanti agli scatti fotografici di Angelo Nairod, giovane artista che ha esposto in collettive internazionali come “Love Art” di Venezia e “Massenzio Arte” di Roma e che adesso propone una sua mostra personale a Trieste. Da oggi i suoi lavori invadono le sale del bar libreria Knulp per l’evento “The celebration of a Pop destroyed society” e mercoledì sarà presente anche lui. La mostra, organizzata dall’associazione culturale DayDreaming Project, è curata da Sergio Pancaldi che dice: «Angelo Nairod è un narratore per immagini che rappresenta il mondo contemporaneo come il set di una soap opera lisergica e feroce. I protagonisti delle sue storie, i suoi attori, sono clown urlanti, travestiti zoomorfi, icone dissacrate costrette ad osservare il declino e la caduta dei valori da loro stesse suggeriti, spazzati via da ondate pop impregnate di lirismo, ironia ed erotismo. Un mondo, quello di Angelo Nairod, permeato da un’energia sottile e vibrante, che profuma davvero dello spirito di una generazione nuova». Per Nairod l’arte è un’espiazione e una condanna che lui affronta consapevole di non essere una persona normale: «Mi sento come un ragno che osserva l’essere umano dal suo pianeta e cerca di analizzare e criticare il suo comportamento. L’essere umano è come uno show televisivo per il ragno che lo considera qualcosa di insignificante e inutile ma allo stesso tempo non riesce a smettere di guardarlo». La mostra di Trieste resterà visitabile al Knulp fino all’11 settembre.

We take a walk, the sun is shining down,
burns my feet as they touch the ground.

'Better than nothing' is my company slogan. Its use on this typographic A2 poster has been created in an ASCII style. The hundreds of hand drawn (pencil) dashes make an optical illusion which form the letters.

If you look closely (see larger size) you can see the letter forms hidden in the dashes.
