We’re delighted to announce the launch of Dialogues with the Masters, a project we’ve been secretly working on for over a month now. The site features Janet Attwood, co-author of New York Times Bestseller The Passion Test and her journeys throughout India learning from the great masters of our time.
Janet interviewed over 100 masters and compiled their wisdom into a DVD and CD set, as well as the newly created Daily Dose of Enlightenment program, in which subscribers can receive a video every day for a year.
This site was a milestone in my web design career, both in the extent of my abilities and the exposure this site will be receiving. It will also be the last “Design” I post on this website. Very soon my Design services will be moved elsewhere, and The Astrarium will be transforming into a true online magazine, featuring…YOU?
Apologies for the delays along this process and with the October Forecast. Hang in there!
I took a Sanskrit class while at MUM and created this short abstract film as a final project, illustrating the metaphorical locations of the Hindu Deities in the human body and introducing each deity.
Note that the images and music used in the video are not my own. Music is “Dawning” by Benjy Wertheimer and “Integration: The Beginning” by Sophia. I did the After Effects work and put the whole thing together, along with an oral presentation.
Here is a project from my Constructed Realities class. We were meant to construct a diorama or small scene and photograph it for a series of prints. I lined up three of my favorite Hindu deities, Brahma, Ganesh, and Shiva, and created a small altar made of natural materials and set all by the river. After taking the photos I enhanced them to show the elements each deity represents. The hindu trimurti or trinity is generally with Vishnu and not Ganesh, but I do not have a Vishnu statue so I used Ganesh instead.
In my Digital Imaging class back in 2007, our second assignment was open ended. I decided to create five prints based on world religions and their practices. I only have two of the five images at the moment, will upload the rest later.
This was the last level I released before Forest Palaces- an old one! It has a similar feel to Jungle from TR3 and draws audio and textures from Heavy Metal: FAKK 2, which was a fun game.
It is a very easy level, as my old “gameplay” consisted of keys and switches, with the occasional flipmap or baddy. Some torch puzzles, zip lines, pushables, and timed runs as well. A good old tomb raider romp in the style of TR3 India.
Note: You’ll need the Tomb Raider Level Editor engine installed to play this game. It’s free and about 100mb to download. Once you have that installed, you can play any custom level available at trle.net or other fine TRLE websites. More recent levels do not require TRLE, however the older ones do.
