"x twelve v.1" is my latest ARt attempt, channel No. 171744 on Junaio. This 12x loop 3D cylinder object built around a common axis is cast forth by the user in front of where ever (s)he is standing. Like my AZZA series, this 3D object is created in code using a multi-part random number sequence, thus ephemeral, never to be repeated, only a view of the result can be recorded by the mobile device still camera.

Using a simple hack of closing the iPad I was able to drag this object created on East 63rd Street into the "F" line subway tunnel, a portion under renovation, many feet below. I like the painterly quality of the higher resolution image. Click on the image and if you agree, or not, let me know.

This is the beginning of the Svoboda/Bull Cattle Co. 2013 heifer herd wrangled with care under the watchful eye of Scott Hanson in western Nebraska. These fine animals were purchased at the end of March 2013 from the Ogallala Sale Barn. We will follow an organic practice raising the cattle this summer. We receive our financial support from Pinnacle Bank, Ogallala NE. Note our lazy S backwards B brand.

A fragment of an annoying phone call exchange with a bot, an agent of my new health care provider gathering demographic information. The questions are presumptuous and the bot has a hearing disability. I hung up on the bot as no other options were provided.

This is an AR Junaio browser screen grab of my augmented reality piece from last night's show Swell Sound & Vision at The Firehouse Space, Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The event was organized by Jessica Nissen and Sasha Sumner. Many thanks to Ben Blachnitzky and Felix Bull for their help producing the alpha channel video fire. If you're not in Brooklyn in front of this door sign, then use the show poster below and DIY.

This was spotted from the crow's nest today and now I share it with you.
MARCH 22, 2013 — Rolls-Royce plc has signed a contract for the delivery of its Azipull propulsion and control system for a "ferry of the future" that will operate on battery power alone.
The vessel is being built at the Fjellstrand shipyard in Norway, and once in service will be operated by Norwegian ferry operator Norled between Lavik and Oppedal.
