  • What is called "object" in 3D Modeling

    Communication, Communication Design

    During past days of my career, I was conducting a 3-day workshop on 3D modeling basics at Computer Science and Engineering department of an university college at Dhaka. As usual, like my other previous workshops, as a preparatory exercises, I had collected participants' data, and found most of them are at final year of gradutaion. I had taken into account that, I was required to explain basic stuffs in 3D in such way, so that, everybody enjoys the workshop. I wanted to explain from their point of perspective.

    If you are a software developer or a programmer, you must be having your own understanding of the term called OOP (object oriented programming). This is radically a huge concept. I*n fact, software like 3DSMAX, Maya are marvels of object oriented software programming. A 3D designer, who has never done programming before, should still understand at least the single most important aspect of any 3d modeling software's object oriented nature, there is no clear distinction between data and functions.

    In traditional programming theories, data and functions are two different concepts. What is Data? Data is simply 'the information' which is a numeric value (look from programmer's view), a string of text characters, but static. And, what is a function? A function is an action. In fact, function is a procedure. This relevantly acts on data, create new data. Data is passed into a function, which processes the same to produce output data. Ok, here is an example; If we write a func...

  • By the Numbers

    An average worker bee will only make 1/12 of a teaspoon of honey in its lifetime.

    Honeybees produce $200 million worth of honey each year.

    Honeybees help pollinate nearly 100 types of crop. graph

    The honey bee is responsible for $15 billion in agricultural crops each year.

    Without honeybees, about a 1/3 of the U.S food supply can be in jeopardy.

    The West Coast is thought to have lost 60% of its commercial bee population, with 70% missing on the East Coast.

    In 2007, the price for a bee colony is about $135, up from $55 in 2004.They are all related due to our food chain system.

    This photo was taken from somewhere in Chinatown during a festive season. Talking about Chinese ceremonies you can hardly avoid a ten-course meal and stage performances. With the lack of open space to hold a large number of people, streets are sometimes temporarily converted into Urban Ballrooms.

  • The Future of Self-Knowledge

    Arts & Culture, Audio/Visual Design

    The main thesis to my work is entitled The Future of Self-Knowledge and looks at the possible future forecasting design opportunities between the methods used in corporate futurology, ancient divination and predictive gene testing. The link to my research blog ( documents a range of future forecasting methodology research that was used as a sketchbook for me to create The FATE INSTITUTE and all of its service offerings.

  • Ganas de escribir de moda y dar a conocer el diseño emergente chileno y latinoamericano, me motivaron a crear mi blog de arte, moda y decoración Quinta Trends ( hace casi dos años. Un espacio que se han transformado en una vitrina para más de 70 de diseñadores de Chile y Latinoamérica.

    Uno de los fuertes de mi blog, además de ser escenario de los eventos de las marcas emergentes, es su contenido periodístico asociado a entrevistas con los mismos diseñadores, lo que permite posicionar marcas y dar a conocer a grandes creadores de nuestro continente desde una mirada en primera persona.

    Hace unos meses cada vez me he abierto más a las propuestas latinas. De esta forma, he publicado entrevistas a importantes diseñadores argentinos, mexicanos, colombianas y peruanos. Porque no cabe duda que Latinoamérica la lleva. Con paso lento, pero seguro, se hace escuchar con propuestas intensas y novedosas, que traspasan su identidad cultural y muestran su esencia latina, vibrante y radiante. Este amor por mis raíces y la atracción inevitable por este movimiento que revoluciona la moda, me ha llevado a realizar un giro editorial en los contenidos del blog y a comenzar a investigar sobre sus nuevas promesas o "viejos" consortes. Mi idea es ir ampliándome a otras latitudes, no sólo con la idea de llegar a más público, sino también, porque creo que podemos aprender mucho de la experiencia de nuestros vecinos (cercanos y lejanos)”....
