Uruguay celebrates “Carnaval” over 40 days. Some of the parades and performances have been postponed or delayed due to intense rainstorms and flooding. Here are some tastes of what it feels to be at the celebrations…
Music (remixed) Caminando by Hugo Fattoruso and the Drums of Cuareim (Lonjas de Cuareim)

He is regarded as one of the most important figures in the popular music of his country and Latin America in general. For more info see my blog :: or en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alfredo_Zitarrosa

In this production I decided to use masks and filters in addition to the split screens due to the intense lighting of the dance scenes. By masking this sequence with an antique look I tried to minimize the glare of the fluorescent lighting. Once I had done it to the dance portion, for the sake of balance did it to the scenic clips as well. The vignette was added to promote the “old” look and to further enhance the masking.
Gustavo Rosas and Gisela Natoli dance (rearranged by Leo Bar) to a new age tango – Gloria by Gotan Project (remixed). Traditional scenery of places and events in Uruguay and Argentina can be seen side by side with the dancers.

How gems and minerals may have been formed. Featuring my collection of minerals and gems together with the collaboration of Cran Cowan – UV lighted minerals @ http://www.flickr.com/photos/28617364@N04/
Music: A different angle -2 by Garry B. @ https://soundcloud.com/garry-b
Special thanks to NOAA for the underwater volcanoes clips.
Here are the steps I took to produce this piece:
- Made with CHAOSCOPE software images that resemble the target mineral photograph previously taken (size-color-shape)
- Took the image and the target mineral photograph through a morphing program and produced a video rendition of the transformation.
- There were several other “attractor/chaos” images made that were morphed among themselves and then re-morphed into the gem/mineral target.
- Then gathered all the technical – chemical composition for the making and assembling of the descriptions.
- The process was tedious, time consuming and error prone (re-edits), but because I love my stones and minerals it was a real pleasure seeing how it could have happened
