Kaleidoscopes

December 18, 2008 at 1:21 am 3 comments

This all started when I paid a visit to Bioephemera, one of my favorite eye candy blogs, and found this:

If they’d have made this with white rats and pigeons it could be the Skinner box from Hell.  (What is the reward for whacking your head incessantly into a glass wall?)

Strangely fascinating, it led me on a bit of a search. I googled ‘kaleidoscope’ and ‘dog ‘and found this:

Cool Interactive Dog Kaleidoscope

Go there.  Play with it.  You’ll enjoy it if you’re reading this late on a weekend night after a few of whatever floats your boat. Especially if your chosen flotation device lies somewhere left of legal.

Floating along, I thought it would be fun to create something like this myself – but  not being a geek I needed help.  Searching around a bit more I found this free plugin for Photoshop Elements that let me make simple Kaleidoscopes of my own.

Check it out.  I pulled a few photos up, dinked around for 15 minutes –  and here are the results:

While they’re not as entrancing as live birds and mice swarming into a mirrored trap or the hallucinogenic, mouse-induced swirlings of the border collie flash application – they were fun to create.
