Alex Uchôa Photography: Landscapes from Brazil
by Melanie Delon
I studied archeology and history of arts, then I went to a gamedesign school (for 2 years), which just was not my thing. I discovered Photoshop last year, since then i have became addicted to it. All subjects are interest, they just have to talk to me,but fantasy and dreamy subjects are my favourite's. Having fun doing them is the most important thing to me.

Moving the solar system
The essay is based on Zwicky's monstrous idea to do space travel by moving the entire solar system. In the fictuous discovery story, it is reported how scientists learn in 2048 to control some parameters in the nuclear fission of the sun by triggering asymetric burning in the sun. This allows them to produce a tiny acceleration of the sun. This is used to change the dynamics of the solar system and prevent a disastrous collision with an asteroid.

Napkin Folding Instructions
|Napkin Folding Instructions: How to fold napkins, step by step.|
The Candle Fan Fold: Sometimes you just need something a little different. The candle fan stuffed into a goblet or mug is very different. The larger the napkin that you use is, the longer the 'candles' will be.
