Kicking off Fedora 35 wallpaper
by Máirín Duffy
We missed the boat on getting the F33 and F34 wallpaper out at the same
time. We have the F34 wallpaper underway but I'd like to try to get F34
and F35 out at the same time so we can finally get ahead a release.
As a refresher, each release we increment a letter of the alphabet and
look to highlight a scientist, inventor, or engineer whose name begins
with that letter and use their work as inspiration for the visual
concept of the wallpaper.
For example, F29's inspiration was Alexander Graham Bell ("B") and we
embedded the concept of a vocal sound wave into the visuals of a forest
reflecting in water.
For F35, the letter is J. The first part of this process is as a team we
vote on which of a few J figures we find most inspirational / the best
possibility for cool visuals for the F35 wallpaper. I propose the list
below. Should we get voting?
1. Irene Joliot-Curie -
Marie Curie's daughter, she was a Nobel-prize winning scientist who was
the first to transmute stable atoms into radioactive atoms.
Visual concepts around this theme could deal with transformation /
change / conversion, and energy/power.
2. Edward Jenner -
Credited with the discovered of smallpox vaccination - he noticed
milkmaids that had contracted cowpox from working with cows were immune
to smallpox and developed and tested a vaccine.
This concept is clearly timely with the ongoing pandemic. We could key
off of that, one of the concepts around defeating an infectious disease
is each individual caring about the needs of the whole community and
being considerate, and understanding we're all one - so that's one
potential concept that could be visualized in some form.
3. Mae Carol Jemison -
A medical doctor and sceintist who became a NASA astronaut studying the
effects of weightlessness and motion sickness on human health. She also
appeared on an episode of Star Trek and is the only real astronaut to
ever do so.
Jemison was a doctor (also very timely to feature a doctor with the
pandemic) as well as an astronaut and a teacher/mentor. We've done a lot
of space themes and I'd suggest aiming away from a generic space theme
and maybe thinking about specifically the human body in space since that
was her research topic for NASA.
4. Whitcomb Judson -
A mechanical engineer from the mid 19th century with many
railway/streetcar patents who also happened to have invented the zipper.
There's a lot of neat abstract visuals we could come up with I think
around the mechanism of a zipper (which he called a "clasp-locker
fastener"). The way the components weave together, and the general
concept of connecting things could be neat visuals.
5. Reynold B. Johnson -
A high school science teacher who became an engineer at IBM and invented
the first hard drive in 1956. In his retirement he invented technology
to enable Fisher Price toys to speak.
I'm not too sure about visuals for this one but the invention of the
hard drive seems pretty significant and relevant to Fedora so I figured
I'd throw it in :)
