Visit to Creative Handicap, met Sylvie the director. She showed me some eyeglasses with a few holes to explain what a particular type of "malvoyant" mean - people who sees things all focused in dispersion. I talked about the pinhole glasses that I had made many years ago and the pinhole glasses that I have in my possession.
Sylvie said that her art center gives people a secondlife life. She does recycled art, and "recycles people" make them feel useful again. She was cutting up a deer hoof at the sink. A taxidermist, she uses hunters left overs. Feet, head, and make into paintings. Also recycles ladies shoes into art work. Its a fun, warm and lively place.
Her studio is open from 2 to adults, everybody is welcome to create. To give meaning to the things they see around them and doing things together.
A fine visit to Asnieres.
I took the RER D, train has problem - its the 4th incident within the last month.
RER A, C, D all three had problems, everyday. Someone was sick, electricity centre had a crash, the tramway track had obstacles.
Pick pockets, people being sold correspondant train tickets thats impossible to take... 90eur lost... etc etc.
Went to a bakery, a Maroccan bakery because, not only they had the french baquette, they had these round flat breads. The yg man who served had big pretty eyes. He asked me where I was from. I said HK, He said, your country is very beautiful, big, I travelled to Xian, rah rah rah, he named many cities with correct Chinese pronounciation, I was v amazed. I asked when he visited? He said when he was a student. And he married a South Korean woman, to ask the hand of his wife, he went to Korea with her. Since they are going so far, they decided to take a trip to China on the way. They bought a Lets Go guide, And stayed at hotels with one star, or no star. But so fantastic beautiful, every city so different. He explained since he knows no Chinese, he was at a restaurant, he said, he communicated like this, he crossed his arms in front of his chest and made Chicken noises, no chicken; then again, Cow noise; no beef; then again, pig sound. The owner understood and made him a big nice fresh salade with corn - it was delicious he said. Then he went to Korea. He wrote 100 cv, only 4 answered. 2 were no. 1, said yes, but please wait. Then, no. Contract cannot be carried out. Last one, the president of the company said, I am sorry, we had internal complaint, they say, we have so many young people with no job, why do you give a job to a foreigner? No. So to not create problems at his company, he cannot offer him the job. He said to me, he tried, right? He tried to show maximum effort for his inlaws, but did not succeed. So they came to France, and now he has two children, everything is perfect. Very good. And I hope to meet you again! He said.
Such a handsome, smart, bright, cheerful and humanly correct young guy. Which parent would not want him to be son in law?
Pin Hole Glasses
The top one has much smaller holes, and the ones I made were testing models, I had no data for the measurement of the holes, just experimented in a flash.
The unaided weak eye with Pinhole Glasses
Good day to you two,
What a hoot. I have just come back from the optomertrist after having my eyes checked and he is STILL scratching his head! He does not understand how my eyesight seems to be imptoviong at the ripe old age of 77 and he definitely was not interested in investigating my pinhole glasses !!
What are Pinhole Glasses For?
Well you did warn me! Even though you encouraged me to start slowly with the glasses and use them for just a few minutes each time I took the bull by the horns and did two hours to start with. As you predicted the muscles in the back of my eyes felt just like my legs when I first went back to running and overextended them! However they quickly settled down and I have really been aware of the improvement in my eyesight so even when I forget to take any glasses I can still read the menu in the restaurant.
" People with both close and distant blur and astigmatism are able to use micohole sight correctors."
Dr. David Michael(author of Visual Optics and Refraction)
" Microholes reduce aberrations and light scattering, isolate a favorable area of the damaged cornea and increase depth of focus."
Dr. Norman Bies(author of Correction of Subnormal Vision)
" The longer depth of focus obtained through microholes is well established --- patients enjoy a substantial increase in reading distance."
