While we were in South Africa, on a research trip, to see if 'South Africa in Motion' would be a sustainable pod, we snook in a quick safari. Wow... breathtakingly magical!
One of the biggest markets in Central America spread around the 400-year old church of Santo Tomás. It is built on top of a Pre-Columbian temple. K'iche' Maya priests still use the church for their rituals, burning incense and candles alongside the catholic mass. We arrived at 6am to see the local vendors setting up.
I was scanning some banknotes I have collected on trips, for a possible After Effects project for 'World in Motion'. The details are amazing. I tried to scan a US Dollar. The scanner shutdown and an error message came up saying it was illegal. Interesting how the scanner recognized it. I did some research and apparently there are certain shapes and line formations that scanning software recognizes. I guess these notes were too old to have that configuration.
