Als papa die al 10 jaar "op een mooie pinksterdag" neuriet als ik met dochter (en zoon lief) aan lopen ben, geweldig!

See how we used the Xbox Kinect, projectors, and other technology to make the music video for Exist Elsewhere's song 'Tokyo.' Also, see how the Kinect and other technology is paving new ways in interactive art and film.

Leap userinterface with Flickr, Minority Report User Interface is here (well sort of :-)

I recently gave a presentation about Natural User Interface and dived again in my old (?) leapmotion.

Alfred Eisenstaedt, Instagram hate

Alfred Eisenstaedt. One of the best known photographers of the world from the last century. Best know for hist freedom "V J Daykiss photo on timesquare.

And known for his great photos of the beautiful Monroe:

He was lucky enough to meet Einstein as well and made the most well known photo of the genius.

He made photos of ms Loren in lingerie, Churchill making the "V"ictory sign and many many great photos. President Kennedy, Dali are just a few of the well know persons. But his work on anonymous people and everyday objects is even better. Be sure to scroll on this page containing most of his work.

Many photos from Alfred Eisenstaedt

By far his best work however is his two photos of Goebbels, the German (pre) WorldWar 2 propaganda minister. Goebbels was known to play the media, be smiling in the papers and always laugh when in public. He knew how to play the camera in an age where most politicians didnt pay attention to the media, most americans didnt even knew their president during that period was in a wheelchair.

Alfred Eisenstaedt was born in Poland within a Jewish family and unfortunately witnessed the rise of the Nazi Party led by Adolf Hitler. He tried to gain ground profesionalment in Berlin, but inevitably had to emigrate to the United States because of his Jewish background.

Alfred Eisenstaedt was perhaps the only man who could portray the face of evil, hypocrisy and hatred that can hold a human. There are two photos, without much time lapse between the one and the other.

It happened in Geneva. He had the opportunity to portray Joseph Goebbels, Hitler's Minister of Propaganda. In the first picture there was no major problem because the atmosphere was relaxed and Goebbels was showing off his smile.


For the next picture, the face of Joseph Goebbels changes radically, it decomposes. We had been warned that one of the accredited photographers (Alfred Eisenstaedt), was Jewish, places him, and gives him a demonic look.


In the 1985 book, Eisenstaedt on Eisenstaedt: A Self-Portrait, the then-87-year-old photographer discussed how the Goebbels picture came about:

In 1933, I traveled to Lausanne and Geneva for the fifteenth session of the League of Nations. There, sitting in the hotel garden, was Dr. Joseph Goebbels, Hitler’s minister of propaganda. He smiles, but not at me. He was looking at someone to my left…. Suddenly he spotted me and I snapped him. His expression changed. Here are the eyes of hate. Was I an enemy? Behind him is his private secretary, Walter Naumann, with the goatee, and Hitler’s interpreter, Dr. Paul Schmidt…. I have been asked how I felt photographing these men. Naturally, not so good, but when I have a camera in my hand I know no fear.
