No, but then we never gave it any thought. After learning all this stuff about Islam I decided to look up our family from Lebanon. Very shocked to learn what I did.

Maybe what drew you to the drones besides a good fight or mystery Tomi was the art and design..so..arabesque..as one person put it...that connection to your roots.. speaking of connections..Purr described herself as an immigrant or partial..I wonder f the two of you share some common ancestry or sometin..recall an old employer I shan't name..who were arabic and Dutch based.Even Klat was half Dutch..I'ts been said we don't come down here alone but in groups.or so some circles believe.Is it possible? smiley

I had a Dutch Uncle or three. Does that count? grin Actually lots of Dutch ancestors, but more German ones. Lots of Ellis Island grads, even a Swede I knew who remembered passing through as a child. Hell of an adventure, eh? Definitely not the path of least resistance.

hehe..you had a gypsy aunt too!! I forgot about HPO the modeler..and Peter with the kite drone pix..at DRT..amazing..Netherlands were very well represented in the drone saga..very rich cultural tapestry.very honest..but never forget..they hoodwinked the Indians into giving up manhattan for some fake pearls. Someting like that.. grin I'm a little foggy on the whole Pocohantas thing...yeah..I guess Tomi would fit in fine as we don't have any marinated Catholics on board..I'm worried that might b a cult...but we need to balance the irreverent Sub Genious types..and it might give us some bragging rights down the line..
Problem is..the last time I gave her an honor she gave a 1000 word speech at OM giving credit to the PI drone detectives..left me dumbfounded... shocked

That avatar reminds me of Hindu sand paintings used for rituals such as funerals and festivals! Once they finish they are destroyed!

Welcome aboard Dragoon!I have no doubt this had those elements of life and death incorporated and even the colors on the avatar are used in the rituals. Lets not forget the design of the crafts which resembled oil lamps. I doubt death was the message for an art collective project used on a laptop. I would argue Life..A light in the darkness...the oneism of all cultures. particulary if one is opening non traditional markets which the people I mentioned previously were at the time. The first arabic keyboard was used by Dell that year, if I am not mistaken.

Dragonfly formation celebrates artistic collaboration, impermanence

Like clouds against a summer-blue sky or a dew-coated flower, Daniel Dancer's art is here and then it's gone.

It was here Friday, on a lawn at Lane Community College where more than 100 people and a pile of old clothes were momentarily transformed into a brilliant, quarter-acre dragonfly. And after 10 minutes it was just a lawn again.

"One lesson I think humans need to grasp is impermanence," said Dancer, a Hood River artist who paints with people and uses grass as a canvas. "One of the secrets to living a happy life is to embrace impermanence and live every single moment as if it is our last, because we never know when that last one is going to come."

That's only part of the message Dancer tries to convey as he travels the country committing temporary acts of art, usually using schoolchildren as his paint. This time, though, it mostly was participants in the Oregon Bioneers Conference, a gathering of scientists, environmentalists and social activists brainstorming ways to boost sustainable lifestyles.

Dancer calls it "Art for the Sky," images of salmon, bighorn sheep, flowers, birds and other scenes composed with masses of children whose colored shirts serve as paint. The pictures are all done on a large scale that can only be appreciated when seen from above, much like the mysterious Nazca Lines carved into the desert plains of Peru that inspired Dancer as a youth.

The idea that the images can best be seen from above also is part of Dancer's art. It's a way to show people - children in particular - that sometimes you have to take a few steps back from your own life to really understand what's going on.

"It's about seeing the big picture," he said. "It's using our imagination to rise above our problems and make sense of them and discover the solutions that live in that big-picture zone."

Typically, Dancer spends a week working with students at an elementary school to design the artwork. He encourages teachers to connect the project to lessons in art, music, math, history and science by exploring the creature or object to be created and how it interacts with its environment.

This time he spent three days with the Bioneers doing workshops on his art and how it blends with history and environment. He often has participants use organic or recycled clothing; Friday's event used clothes donated by The Salvation Army, St. Vincent de Paul and Goodwill.

On the final afternoon of the project, participants troop out to a field or playground and form themselves into their chosen image, which Dancer first outlines with nontoxic paint and occasionally fills in with accents made from clothing and other material.

They hold their positions long enough for Dancer to photograph them from a fire department ladder truck, a bucket truck or, as was the case Friday, a handy rooftop.

"Children just love this," Dancer said as he sorted through clothes for Friday's project. "There's so much joy and excitement. They'll remember it all their lives."

The lesson that life is here and then it's gone or the value of taking a larger view aren't the only lessons he hopes participants come away with. It's also about teamwork and how people working together can do things they could never do alone.

"We can't succeed in life without collaborating with other people," he said. "This art does not work if we don't all collaborate together with one goal in mind."

As fleeting as Dancer's work is, it doesn't disappear entirely when the project is over. The school or sponsor gets a large print and a CD of the image to remember the occasion, and it's added to the gallery on Dancer's Web page, www.inconcert withnature.com.

Dancer hopes participants take something else away with them: an appreciation for Nature's own artwork.

"It's a way to give thanks for the beauty we see every day," he said. "It's teaching us to create something beautiful and then let it go."

During those epic times that was hard to do for many, like myself.
