I just finished observing a music program for children with disabilities, and I’m taking notes.""So what’s something you observed?""Many of the children had some form of autism. And it seemed that playing music together gave them the satisfaction of contributing to a group and forming relationships, without the pressure of having to speak or maintain eye contact."

Ever wonder how Michele Carragher (embroidery designer for game of thrones) got the Dragon scale look on Daenery’s  Dragon scale dresses. here is a how to create your own dragon scale garment.

This dress is probably my single favorite garment from the show… so I’ll just be filing this away for later!

Michele Carragher’s work is beautiful and definitely worth checking out.

A lot of the non embroidered, textural elements of the costumes are done with techniques that can be found in The Art of Manipulating Fabric, which is such an important sourcebook for anyone interested in sewing and textiles.

Reblogging for sources and more information (I have that book, but I’ve been too busy to put it into practice!)

Reference for if we finally get a show with dragons next year.

"I want to design rocket engines.""What’s one way that you think rockets will change the world that people don’t currently anticipate?""Space mining. Sunlight in particular. Most people think of space as being very cold, but if you step out of your spacesuit into direct sunlight, your blood will boil. On earth, the energy of the sun is largely absorbed by the atmosphere. So in space, solar panels could be much more effective."

Andreas Franke

Austrian photographer and deep sea diving enthusiast Andreas Franke has released a new series titled Stavronikita Project: The Life Above Refined Below being exhibited deep at the bottom of the Caribbean right off the coast of Barbados. It was less than two years ago that the adventurous photographer first introduced his idea of an underwater gallery, at 130 ft. deep, with his photography affixed to the sunken USS General Hoyt S. Vandenberg ship. This new exhibit, though similar in its approach, offers a new set of surreal images to view by diving undersea.

Franke’s latest project explores the decadent lifestyle of the wealthy during the Rococo era as it is juxtaposed with the decaying freight ship and swarming marine life as its backdrop. The Viennese artist uses images of his models imitating the period of opulent abundance as a contrasting visual to his deep sea captures of the SS Stavronikita, creating an intriguing image rich with interpretation. Like his previous work, Stavronikita is on display underwater, behind a plane of plexiglas, sealed in with silicone and a steel frame and attached to the ship with strong magnets. The exhibit can currently be seen, at a depth of 80 ft., through April 2013.
