How open-minded are YOU?
It’s been a while (three months actually) but whatever, this is my blog – I do what I want!
I thought I’d revive my blog with a cheesy collection of Photoshopped animals; check it out!
A nice vintage animation about waking up to reality.
Well not exactly smarter, but they do (according to this short video) seem to have a better short term memory!
Yes, you read that correctly. And it’s not a 3D-animation, but a real amphibious robotic device, capable of swimming very controlled like a real snake.

Today 63 years ago, The Netherlands were liberated by primarily the Americans and the Canadians. Therefore, we celebrate our liberation every year on May the 5th. This feast is called ‘Bevrijdingsdag’: Freedom/Liberation Day. We used to celebrate our own freedom from occupation and told ourselves on May the 4th, Dodenherdeking or Remembrance of the Dead, that atrocities like the ones Hitler caused, should never happen again. Every year now, there are less people that consciously experienced the Second World War, and this day has gotten an entirely different meaning now. Life is good in the Netherlands and most of the Western World, but in many places, people are not free and do not have the comfort of a safe home and food on the table every day. In the Western World, we should be very aware of the amazing possibilities we have, compared to millions of other inhabitants of our blue marble.
Therefore, I made this animation for all the Bevrijdingsfestivals, depicting the Global Village, because the world is getting so small and smaller each day. It is the collaborative presence of four NGO’s, Warchild, Amnesty, Cordaid en Vluchtelingenwerk (Refugee Work)
This at first might seem like stand up comedy, someone playing the role of a crazy professor, complete with white coat, large glasses and fluffy hair. But then when you keep listening, you start to realize this guy (Marvin Minksy, a pioneer on Artificial Intelligence) is just being himself, talking about the things he uses his time on earth for.
This is just wonderful to look at. The order of the portraits has been chosen very carefully. This mix of art has become a piece of art itself!
