Welcome to the “Influences” section. As its name implies, this is a collection of images that have influenced the images we create and the ideas we have here at waist.it.
Most of our influences have now been included in this section, in pictorial form. However, this is a work in progress and there may still be some errors and omissions.

<b>Hedy Lamarr, born Hedwig Eva Maria Kiesler, 1913-11-09 ~ 2000-01-19, was an Austro-American actress and mathematician, celebrated for her great beauty, who was a major contract star of MGM\'s \"Golden Age.\" A talented mathemetician, Lamarr and composer George Antheil invented an early technique for spread spectrum communications and frequency hopping, used for wireless communication from the pre-computer age to the present day.</b> <p>When she worked with Max Reinhardt in Berlin, he called her the \"most beautiful woman in Europe\" due to her \"strikingly dark exotic looks,\" a sentiment widely shared by her audiences and critics. She gained fame after starring in Gustav Machatý\'s Ecstasy, a film which featured closeups of her character during orgasm in one scene, as well as full frontal nude shots of her in another scene, both very unusual for the socially conservative period in which the bulk of her career took place.</p> <ul> <li>More info: <a href=\"http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hedy_Lamarr\" target=\"_blank\">http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hedy_Lamarr</a></li> </ul>
