HI!

I think that when you try new things your brain grows in a beneficial way (if the things you try are not all perverted or damaging) so I like to explore different mediums and experiment with new colorful ways of expression. I hope you enjoy my submissions!

3D video rig

Created by jesse 6 years ago

"Nate and I want 3D stuff. Video, Images etc. This is a homemade 3D rig made at only 2$! You need a piece of wood, two metal rods and four wallet mirrors. It can be used with most cameras to freeze motion. It is ideal to have "first surface" mirrors for the middle 90degree fixture but not..."

Playing with gravity and rocks

Created by jesse 6 years ago

"At a river one day camping with my wife, sister and her boyfriend I made some neat rock sculptures like Andy Goldsworthy. The bottom two images (above) can be used as a cross eyed 3D picture. They would dry out and fall because the evaporation took away the weight of the water. So eventually I..."

Negative spaces from my body.

Created by jesse 7 years ago

Steampunk Jar of Articulated Fireflies

Created by jesse 7 years ago

"It was a warm night, the sound of children's laughter bloomed through the bushes. Fiery green gobs of bioluminescence bobbed through the forest. The trees were full of the little magical bugs. I squashed one mid flicker on the walk and showed it to my friend Robbert. Its a great memory I just..."

Frozen Sheet Thawing Timelapse

Created by jesse 7 years ago

"Global warming is going to suck in a few years. I thought I would come up with a few clever solutions to the blazing summer.

Nasty Fly Insect

Sand Spirals
