Abstract Recent improvements in laser rangefinder technology, together with algorithms for combining multiple range and color images, allow us to accurately digitize the external shape and surface characteristics of many physical objects.

Creating digital archives of 3D artworks

This capability makes it possible for the first time to digitize and archive substantial bodies of three-dimensional artistic and cultural artifacts, such as statues, buildings, and archeological remains. Although the methodologies needed to create and manage digital archives of two-dimensional artifacts have matured substantially in the last ten years, the jump from two to three dimensions poses new problems. These are problems of both scale and substance, and they touch on every aspect of digital archiving: storage, indexing, searching, distribution, viewing, and piracy protection. In this pilot project, we are focusing on selected aspects of the following subproblems of this new domain: As of Summer, 2003, this pilot project has ended.

Words in Images: Victor Burgin: What Does Possession Mean to You? Impressionist. Impressionism is a 19th-century art movement that originated with a group of Paris-based artists.


Their independent exhibitions brought them to prominence during the 1870s and 1880s, in spite of harsh opposition from the conventional art community in France. The name of the style derives from the title of a Claude Monet work, Impression, soleil levant (Impression, Sunrise), which provoked the critic Louis Leroy to coin the term in a satirical review published in the Parisian newspaper Le Charivari. Overview[edit] Radicals in their time, early Impressionists violated the rules of academic painting.

They constructed their pictures from freely brushed colours that took precedence over lines and contours, following the example of painters such as Eugène Delacroix and J. Aesthetics. "Aesthetician" redirects here.

Claude Monet. Oscar-Claude Monet (French: [klod mɔnɛ]; 14 November 1840 – 5 December 1926) was a founder of French Impressionist painting, and the most consistent and prolific practitioner of the movement's philosophy of expressing one's perceptions before nature, especially as applied to plein-air landscape painting.[1][2] The term "Impressionism" is derived from the title of his painting Impression, soleil levant (Impression, Sunrise), which was exhibited in 1874 in the first of the independent exhibitions mounted by Monet and his associates as an alternative to the Salon de Paris.

Claude Monet

Monet's ambition of documenting the French countryside led him to adopt a method of painting the same scene many times in order to capture the changing of light and the passing of the seasons. From 1883 Monet lived in Giverny, where he purchased a house and property, and began a vast landscaping project which included lily ponds that would become the subjects of his best-known works.

Some Kind of Clever

He went on to say that only certain things can be characterized as art, and specifically that a kindergarten’s drawing with crayons is not. Naturally, I was outraged. Although I consider myself to be quite arrogant and an elitist, I am also equally outraged at anything that excludes others. In other words, I think I’m superior but I don’t think anyone should be excluded on the basis of being inferior. I know this sounds ludicrous and backwards, and I also know that freely admitting my elitist tendencies make me sound like a giant snob, but that’s who I am.

(Sidebar: I do not consider myself elite in all areas, quite the contrary. So, sitting in class listening to this, I just couldn’t help myself. I challenged him by asking him this question: “Who is it that decided such a limited definition of art?” Nudity in Art: A Virtue of Vice?, By Brian Yoder. By Brian K.

Nudity in Art: A Virtue of Vice?, By Brian Yoder

Yoder The Complaint ome people feel that the nude form is something that should be hidden away both in art and the artist's classroom.

The Musee d'Orsay in Paris has just opened the biggest exhibition in France in decades of the work of the painter Edouard Manet. The new show investigates what lay behind Manet's image as an elegant man-about-town. Descriptions of Edouard Manet often resort to the untranslatable French term 'flaneur'.

In the late 19th century a flaneur was a well-to-do dandy, observing the city around him but always slightly distant from it. Walking around the galleries at the Musee d'Orsay you can see why some art lovers find Manet a little reserved. By and large his work lacks gorgeous blue skies and parasols and beach scenes - the sunny holiday scenes which make Impressionism such an easy sell. Born in 1832 to a wealthy Parisian family, Manet steered clear of too much involvement with his Impressionist contemporaries, although the new show makes their mutual influence clear.

Changing art market gives Sydney four art fairs at once. By Jane O'Sullivan The opening night of the Art Basel Hong Kong art fair was manageable. "But every single day after, the crowds got bigger and bigger and bigger," Sydney art dealer Joanna Strumpf says. iPhones hovered constantly around Sam Jinks' hyper-realistic sculptures of human figures and the gallery had to post two staff members to protect the artworks.

Says Strumpf, "At any one time in the stand we might have had 70-plus people, and that's a lot in a small space … It was quite fantastic and a little bit daunting.
