About / Contact
So.. I’m Aurel Manea and this is my kingdom.
Professionally I am a 3d artist/technical artist and lead 3d artist in Gameloft Romania & Eastern Europe.
More about that in my professional LinkedIn profile:
As a hobby as you can see I spend most my time photographing stuff here and there. I started photography somewhere in 2004 to somehow impress I girl that I liked and evolved the last years a lot also to impress the girl that I love for 7 years already. But that story is spread throughout the blog so no need to unfold it here.
Why “DYSTALGIA” ?
Well I came out with the term while being high one day. It’s not in any dictionary but basically what it means (what I feel it means) is a for of nostalgia that towards a past or present that never was but with the right choices and circumstances could have been. I am a strong believer in parallel universes theories and even if I don’t quite understand the math behind it a big fan of quantum mechanics and the philosophical and existential implications of it. That’s why the background image of the site is a photo of particle traces in a bubble chamber after a particle collision in an accelerator. Call me the Schrodinger’s cat that is dead and ponders upon the possibility of her being alive.
a funny fact: After I came out with the name I searched the web for it and the only place that was used was this little blog that deals (dealt, because it’s been dead for 5 years) with.. mostly quantum stuff.
You can take a look and like (if liked) my facebook fan site.
As for the personal facebook page, I removed it from here, I am not to keen of adding as friends people I don’t know or have nothing in common with.
