Sirenia Mermaid Photoshoot

8 04 2011

I must be the luckiest girl in the world… These are photos from the Sirenia Mermaid shoot for http://www.firefly-path.net JoEllen Elam (aka Lillyxandra) is THE Magical Queen of the Fairies, and possesses the superpowers to peer inside wistful, dreaming girls like me and pull out their potential to show their true fantastical selves! I always dreamed I’d be a mermaid, and designer JoEllen, along with the help of amazing photographer Indigo Verse, (www.indigoverseproductions.com Videographer, Asst., Jenny Newman, and Mer-Carrier Damien Beurer, made that dream come true last week. I will be forever grateful. You can view all the photos & behind the scenes video (watch it for a magical Disney Princess moment!) at JoEllen’s website, Firefly-Path: http://www.firefly-path.net More photos, blog & behind the scenes at Indigo’s website here: indigoversephotography.com The incredible mermaid tail is by Eric The Mertailor: themertailor.com (though I thought I should note that Jo did made a few modifications to complement her design, such as fitting, painting and adding the hip fin XD) Hair/Makeup-me Be sure to stay up to date at both http://www.firefly-path.net and indigoversephotography.com for more of Jo & Indigo’s combined fantasy magic to come!

Google Tech Talk December 16, 2009 ABSTRACT Presented by Jason H. Wong. Our brains are not as reliable as we would like to think. Human factors is the science of understanding human cognition and designing systems to work within its limitations. A lot of time and effort has gone into understanding how our brains work (and when they don’t). However, we continue to make fundamental design errors that not only go against cognitive science principles but common sense as well. This talk will explore some of the quirkier aspects of our cognition, from visual attention to memory and decision making. There will be copious examples of design gone wrong along with discussions of how to understand how we think and how to avoid making design mistakes in the future. Dr. Jason H. Wong is a Human Factors Scientist with the Naval Undersea Warfare Center (NUWC). He received his Ph.D. in 2009 from George Mason University in Human Factors and Applied Cognition, where he conducted research on visual attention and working memory. He was awarded the Department of Defense SMART Scholarship in 2007. This paved the way for his work at NUWC, where Dr. Wong examines the human-computer interaction aspects of complex systems, develops efficient submariner training methodologies, and creates cognitive models to simulate human performance.

BS, the woman wasnt deceived by the painting con, you could see her thinking, “Oh well, I gave directions to whoever!” She just wasnt given chance to voice it or it’d ruin the show.

the experiment is not an evidence that people didn’t notice the changr. You need to asking them after :did they noticed? and if yes, why they did not talk about it?

@michalchik thats why you take a quick psychadelic mix to empty the cup my friend…

though im jus a kid… argh…. do my thoughts deceive me ? arh…tis question over arguement unnecessary… why ask tis way ? tis not right logic question, cause u are asking, as though ur thoughts are by itself independent ? surely everyone knows all thoughts via initiation or variation due to facts and conditions etc.

If you think,”Alcohol is Good”
or something Truly bad, is Good than you are Deceiving yourself.
For example the typical teenager says,”you can’t get addicted to smoking weed”
Because we all know, that it is possible you can. and that’s why its looked down upon.

watch the video feed from the left, not the big one from right.

then you’ll find yourself having quite an annoying slight headache after a while . . . . awareness is not a focus that you create. it’s a focus you allow and really it’s not as important as you think.

Very interesting, Doctor!
Somehow, this adds very well to a few of my classes about human/machine interactions, and given me a new insight on how the brain works, suddenly making a few concepts that much more clear.

Great speech!! 🙂

I agree that a computer may not be a correct analogy, but I tend to think that if attention was an inexhaustible resource evolution would have produced a mind that was perpetually alert to everything. It would have definite survival value.

I do think that experimental work will show interesting things about how we can leverage attention. I have little doubt that well developed meditative traditions have insights, and my intuitions about attention may be wrong.

i see what you are getting at but without understanding the very limits of what is humanly possible a computer is a crude and possibly flawed analogy.

i think there is much research and testing to be done in this area…….

What happens when you load more and more programs in computer?

Take some organic psychedelic plants/mushrooms then you will know and find out how much you are deceived and cheating yourself! Good luck!

Hmm… more of our visual cognition or perception rather than purely our thoughts deceiving us.. not sure.

what if the focus of your attention is to focus on increasing your awareness on more and more things?
