Isabella Rossellini's daughter loves her cracker!

You sent me so many pics of your travels with crackers that I had to make a video flip book. I love every one of them. Keep 'em coming. Thanks!


This is a second sculpt to parody the amazing Keepon project based on marshmallow bunnies. I love to sculpt snack foods, and I love Mr. Kozima & Mr. Michalowski's work.


O.K., If you know me, you know that what would really happen in this video is that the peep would catch on fire and then be blown out once it was crispy. I would immediately eat the caramelized innerds of the bird. Unfortunately, this is a silicone puppet to parody my love for iconic food and Hideki Kozima's Keepon project. Mr. Kozima is working with autistic children utilizing the playfullness that he and Marek Michalowski have programmed into it. Click here to see this amazing robot.

N-Ray Services images from Canada
Alternative Process Camera: Nuclear Reactor
When a multi-ton steel door is cranked closed and locked behind you, and then another just like it, you understand that these safety devices are intended to protect everyone but you. Entering the nuclear reactor for the first time, I was cautious, inspired, and excited. Clipped to my shirt was the equivalent of my canary for this coal mine, only it didn't sing. You peer through it like a kalidascope and read the needle as it measures radiation quietly. My guide, Jacques, gave me the nickel tour of the reactor. The usual stops for guests include a visit to the machine shop, the control room, and the top of the reactor. The main attraction: the blue light emanating from the reactor core through a pool of cooling water from five stories above. It's both eerie and beautiful simultaneously.

Alternative Process Camera: Digital x-ray camera
The x-ray above is quite different from the neutron ray images from N-ray. In medicine and other industries x-ray images and neutron ray images compliment each other. Each is quite unique in what it reveals. This tomato seed was imaged using a digital x-ray camera from NTB X-ray. [Thanks Uwe!]
