There Must Be Something

in common with these images.
I'll explain later.

As in a deity?

Yes, whoever created those jello cubes must have supernatural powers.

Trippy.

Stephen Hawking couldn't have put it any better.

Mondrian was right. So was Charlie Harper.

I like the metroid/jellyfish thing floating in space.

Elana Pritchard said...

There most definitely is something, but what?

Mak said...

Omigawd glass frog. 8D

John said...

It would be super-cool if the frog with the clear belly ate those beautiful Jello-cubes.

Jonathan Harris said...

If you're looking for a good time, try swallowing one of those jelly cubes whole.

It made me a man.

Personally, I turn to Chuck Jones when I'm looking for "Intelligent Design".

Forbidden Hippo said...

Hey yeah, it does look like a metroid!

J C Roberts said...

Ooh! A frog full of mints! Maybe hotels should leave one of those on each pillow.

tom said...

If there is something, it must have a mental sense of humour to create the duck billed platypus.

Trevor Thompson said...

Bright colors that aren't garish and don't hurt your retinas?

Rothello said...

They're all cool to look at?

Here's one for you...

Studies in transparency and translucency?

Also, I believe those are blocks of glycerin soap, not Jell-O.

hierarchy of detail (the universe is fractal)

• a genetically modified frog with translucent skin
• red and black CG rocks
• greasy red and black CG rocks in a tiling pattern
• CG "lava" that looks like blobs of grease floating in oil
• a translucent blue jellyfish with fuzzy orange organs in its middle
• a translucent pink creature with some sort of chunky brown internal tract
• fake-looking CG landscape with red soil, metallic reflective water, and a giant orange "sun" that doesn't light up the sky or cast light on the surface
• blocks of white soap with embedded colorful translucent blocky bits in it
• orange sea anemones with translucent tentacles

...all the non-CG images have translucency in common, while the CG images don't seem to have much in common except glowing red and orange colors. None of this looks particularly eye-catching, it's all different kinds of ugly.

Is there some "organic vs artificial" theme going on here? I'd really like to read the explanation.

Maybe the universe itself is not just by accident but has been planned out some how and like design, they have rhythm and patterns and such.

The Butcher said...

I personally love the colors on the CG ones. Color seems like one of the only things CG can do very well.

I'm going with "strong contrast" for $200.

They are all random and/or naturally created patterns.
