Photographic Work Portrays Brazil’s Environmental Dualities: Caio Reisewitz Exhibition Continues to Sept. 7, 2014

Tue June 24, 2014

Brazil is the host country for two international sports events.

  • 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™ : This is the 20th FIFA World Cup, a tournament for the men’s football (aka soccer) world championship, that is currently taking place in Brazil 12 June- 13 July.

Brazil is also recognized as “one of 17 megadiverse (i.e.extremely biodiverse) countries, home to a variety of wildlife, natural environments, and extensive natural resources in a variety of protected habitats. Brazil is a regional power in Latin America and a middle power in international affairs, with some analysts identifying it as an emerging global power. Brazil has been the world’s largest producer of coffee for the last 150 years.

“In view of the environmental crisis and globalisation, how can we analyse the delicate relation between preservation and transformation?”

Curator Rafael Cardoso

One of Brazil’s leading contemporary photographers, Caio Reisewitz, portrays the environmental dualities of Brazil in his photography exhibition.

  • This is the first major U.S. solo exhibition of noted Brazilian photographer and artist Caio Reisewitz.
    • Organized by ICP curator Christopher Phillips, the exhibition Caio Reisewitz presents a selection of the artist’s works made between 2003 and 2013.
  • Reisewitz’s photographic work “explores the rapidly changing relationship between urban and rural in modern-day Brazil.”
    • “His images draw attention to the challenge the nation’s economic development now poses to its lush natural environment and rich architectural heritage.
    • A section devoted to large-scale color photographs depicts the largely untouched rainforests that are now endangered by Brazil’s explosive economic growth.
      • Reisewitz sees Brazil’s green rainforests as a “threatened utopia.”
    • Most of these works were made within a few hundred miles of São Paulo, in remnants of the Mata Atlântica (Atlantic Forest) that once blanketed Brazil’s east coast.”

Planetary Panoramas by Vincent Brady

Sun June 22, 2014

Vincent Brady: Planetary Panorama Project &emdash; Devils Tower & The Heavens

Usually star trails time-lapse photography and panoramic photos do not go together, but this is exactly what photographer Vincent Brady has accomplished with his Planetary Panoramas – 360 Degree Night-Sky Time-Lapse.

In his setup, he uses a custom rig of 4 cameras with fisheye lenses. Travelling to “firefly parties in Missouri, dark eerie nights at Devils Tower, through Logan Pass at Glacier National Park, up the mountains of British Columbia, and around the amazing arches and sandstone monuments in the Great American Southwest,” he spends the daytime to scout out the best locations and times to shoot, and returns at night when the sky is clear.

Each camera is set up to take continuous shots, typically over 2-3 hours with 1-2 minute exposures, resulting in 100 or 200 photos from each camera. All the images from a camera are then stacked using StarSltax. The 4 stacked images are then manually — and tediously — stitched into a panorama using PTGui Pro. Finally, the stitched panorama is tweaked in Photoshop.

World’s Largest Optical/Near-infrared Telescope (E-ELT ) Will Be Built With New, Advanced, Powerful Cameras

Sat June 21, 2014

This video presents “E-ELT Trailer.”

ESO (the European Southern Observatory) has been planning a 39-metre-class European Extremely Large optical/near-infrared Telescope, the E-ELT, which will become “the world’s biggest eye on the sky”.

  • ESO just started the construcion of the European Extremely Large Telescope (E-ELT) with a groundbreaking ceremony on 19 June at Cerro Armazones, near Paranal in Chile.
  • The telescope’s “eye” will be almost half the length of a soccer pitch in diameter.
  • The start of operations is planned for early in the next decade, 2024.
  • More than 100 astronomers from all European countries have been involved throughout 2006 on the planning and design of the E-ELT.

The costs involved are astronomical!

  • This planning/designing study costs 57 million Euros (77,512,590.00 US Dollar at the current exchange rate).
  • The construction cost is estimated to be 1083 million euros (2012 prices; 1,472,739,210.00 US Dollar at the current exchange rate).
  • The E-ELT will be operated as an integral part of the ESO observatories.
    • The operating cost includes not only the cost of running the observatory in Chile, but also the cost of operation support in Garching as well as re-investment costs for telescope upgrades and new instruments/cameras for the telescope.
    • The total operating cost is estimated to be 50 million euros per year (67,993,500.00 US Dollar per year at the current exchange rate).

The European Extremely Large Telescope (annotated): The very detailed annotated design for the E-ELT shown here is preliminary. Credit: ESO

The E-ELT will be the largest optical/near-infrared telescope in the world and will gather 15 times more light than the largest optical telescopes existing today.

  • This revolutionary telescope will be able to correct for the atmospheric distortions (i.e., be fully adaptive and diffraction-limited) from the start, providing images 15 times sharper than those from the Hubble Space Telescope.
  • The E-ELT can observe over a wide range of wavelengths from the optical to mid-infrared.

The new, advanced, powerful cameras that will be built as part of the European Extremely Large Telescope include:

ELT -CAM Instrument

  • It’s an infrared (0.8 – 2.5 μm) camera designed for performing astrometry as well as obtaining exquisite photometry of dense, resolved stellar populations at the highest possible spatial resolution.

    “MICADO is one of the two instruments that are currently defined by ESO as the First-Light Instruments (one camera and one spectrograph) for the E-ELT. The 39-Meter telescope will be begin its operation with this camera which obtains for the first time stellar light for analysis.”

    Institute for Astrophysics
    http://www.uni-goettingen.de/en/263488.html

  • This wide-field imaging camera is very compact and is supported underneath the AO systems so that it rotates in a gravity invariant orientation (please see Fig.1 below).
  • This adaptive optics camera is able to image, through a large number of selected wide and narrow band near-infrared filters, a wide 53″ field of view at the diffraction limit of the E-ELT.
    • The field of view of the camera should be comparable with the 53 arcseconds x 53 arcseconds field of MICADO.
  •  It is also a high throughput camera with a fixed 3 mas (milli-arcsec) pixel scale,
  • The key capabilities include the following:
    • Higher Sensitivity and Resolution.
      • This is a powerful tool for many science cases, from studies of faint high redshift galaxies to performing photometry in crowded fields (please see Fig.3 below).
    • Precision Astrometry.
      • The primary imaging field of the camera uses only fixed mirrors.
    • High Throughput Spectroscopy.

“Camera obscura” is a latin phrase which translates to darkened room 
or chamber (Latin; camera for “vaulted chamber/room”, obscura for “dark”). By today’s definition, camera obscura is a darkened box with a convex lens or aperture for projecting the image of an external object onto a screen inside.

  • It is also known as a pinhole camera.

It is important historically in the development of photography and camera.

  • “Camera obscura is created when a small hole or aperture is made
 in a darkened space, producing an inverted image of the scene outside onto an opposite surface within.”
    • The Photographers’ Gallery’s camera obscura uses a lens to increase 
the brightness and sharpness of the image.
  • Camera obscuras have been used:
    • to prove that light travels in
 straight lines,
    • as an aid to drawing and,
    • a popular form of entertainment, particularly during the Victorian era.

There are many camera obscuras located throughout the world including:

Improved IVF Treatment: Using Thousands of Time-Lapse Photos of Developing Embryos for a Successful Pregnancy

Thu June 19, 2014

This video presents “Time Lapse Embryo Imaging with CAREmaps to ‘improve’ IVF.”

  • “Time Lapse images every 10 minutes of developing embryos together with morphokinetic algorithms (maps) – calculations about what the embryo should be doing at specific points in time, enables Care Fertility embryologists to predict which embryos have the highest potential for a successful pregnancy.”

Embryologists use Time Lapse Embryo Imaging (or time-lapse photography) to significantly improve IVF (in vitro fertilization) treatment by using the EmbryoScope® time-lapse system (Unisense/Fertilitech, Aarhus, Denmark).

“The Vision to Conceive

Currently, assessment of embryo development in IVF is limited to brief “snap-shot” glimpses at defined time points, in order to minimize disturbances to culture conditions. However embryo development is a dynamic process and a wealth of information about embryo development history remains untapped.

The EmbryoScope™ Time-lapse System provides a safe, controlled culture environment, while allowing continuous monitoring and observation of up to 72 embryos at a time. The instrument provides a unique opportunity to develop new parameters for future embryo scoring.”

Unisense FertiliTech A/S, Denmark

This video presents “EmbryoScope™ time-lapse system in a clinic.”

  • “See how the laboratory director and embryologist use the EmbryoScope™ Time-lapse System and the EmbryoViewer™ software at the fertility clinic at the hospital in Horsens, Denmark.”

This medical device is a state-of-the-art system, with a built-in camera providing automated and continuous time-lapse photography of “fertilized oocytes from conception until the time of embryo transfer without disturbing the culture environment.”
