"This photograph depicts a classified ‘listening station’ deep in the forests of West Virginia.
The station is located at the center of the National Radio Quiet Zone, a region of approximately 34,000 square kilometers in West Virginia and parts of Maryland.
Within the Quiet Zone, radio transmissions are severely restricted: omnidirectional and high-powered transmissions (such as wireless internet devices and FM radio stations) are not permitted.
The listening station, which forms part of the global ECHELON system, was designed in part to take advantage of a phenomenon called moonbounce.
Moonbounce involves capturing communications and telemetry signals from around the world as they escape into space, hit the moon, and are reflected back towards Earth.
The photograph is a long exposure under the full moon light.”

…skirts and long cardagains hmmmmmmmm Maybe khymeira or psychara would know

Mm. Interesting juxtaposition. I would imagine that Cyber Mori girls live not in a forest, but out by the large fields of vat-grown human crops. They like to drink tea and read charmingly outdated technomancy manuals by the watery light of in-vitro stasis pools. Heh.

I think you should mix and match as you please, but I’m not in the mind to offer anything but encouragement. I’m in a weird state of personal incompletion, and I’m rather disconnected from the external protocols of aesthetics. 

Psychara seems to have a pretty fantastic interpretation.

consensualbuttflicking asked:

Would you mind if I ask what got you into graphic design? It's just that, in the course at my uni that I'm doing currently you've the option of majoring in graphic design or illustration and I find both super interesting but I haven't a clue what to do for my major next year and was kinda wondering if you had any advice?

Holy shit! How did I miss this? I’m sorry!

Okay so, I was in a similar situation. I’ve been illustrating for most of my life, and when the time came, I was accepted into both well-regarded Animation Arts and Graphic Design programs, but I chose to go with the latter because, for me, illustration is a tool that I choose to use selectively. I love to draw for my own enjoyment, but the idea of having to go through the rigor of cultivating very strong traditional art skills on demand didn’t seem as fun for me.

Additionally, Graphic Design has so many various disciplines: branding/identity, packaging, industrial, motion, environmental etc, and I love the versatility that such a scope of choices can bring to my future and employability.

I personally find the ability to compose elements harmoniously (illustrations included!) is much more valuable to me, rather than being an industry-standard pro at drawing alone. Since I’ve finished my design program, I can always take a couple of life drawing classes a week or log into Proko’s site to bring myself up to speed.

I’m not sure if that rant will give you any insight, but I hope it helps!
