Hi all.... like many of you im sure, I journey to some very beautiful and magic spots throughout the winter and get some great pics every year, so I thought I would share some with the community this year and at the same time make a commitment to brush up on my mycology and become a little more familiar with the folk im seeing during my travels with a little help from you all of course Ive been using the big ol web for identification to this point... but I intend on purchasing a book to take out field with me... I thought id ask for some suggestions for good Australian Id handbooks you guys are fond of before i go picking one up... would be greatly appreciated The season has been off to a slightly slower start than last but I managed to get some nice shots for the first short trek of the season.... all pine today but will be out in the native flora soon enough Im yet to do any deep work with the Amanita but I admire their vibrant nature and deep history... Gymnopolus. I have no idea what these are but they are huge.. haha. Mycena Genus? Armillaria? Not sure Some funky friends Chloropyllum? someone told me these are edible? Galerinas? Any help and advice on a good handbook would be appreciated... Cheers! ~Blessings.
Well, not sure how I found myself on this webpage (I think I only slept for 3 hours or less last night, maximum), but anyway, I've never felt such a strange combination of extreme happiness and inadequacy. If you like what Xenodimensional does, then you will like a lot of this stuff too. http://gallery.bridgesmathart.org/exhibitions/2012-bridges-conference I don't really see much point in posting over a huge selection of what's there, but if you find anything awesome, post your favourite. Here are some of my favourites: by Kerry Mitchell This one is made of the chaotic orbits of bounday points of the Mandelbrot set. This if the Mandelbrot set for those who forgot: by Alexandru Usineviciu This one is not that beautiful compared to some of the others. But there's so many ideas it contains. All he did was use twisted wire pieces, and "weave" them together by "screwing" each wire piece in (there's no knots or welds). The last one is my most favourite, and it's called the Electric Sheep, and it's by Scott Draves. It's the one that's just so amazing, that I can't help but feel like a lesser human being in it's presence. The artwork is a distributed computer program that generates artworks through evolutionary design and participation of users (you "vote" for what you like, and the one you voted for gets to evolve). I'm sure I haven't explained it well at all. But it's just amazing to marvel at the individual pieces that it makes, and how original they all are. Here's a sample: And there's just so many more: http://v2d7c.sheepserver.net/cgi/best.cgi
