Understanding the Fibonacci Sequence and Golden Ratio – Fractal Enlightenment
The Fibonacci Sequence The Fibonacci sequence is possibly the most simple recurrence relation occurring in nature. It is 0,1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34,55,89, 144… each number equals the sum of the two numbers before it, and the difference of the two numbers succeeding it. It is an infinite sequence which goes on forever as it develops. The Golden Ratio/Divine Ratio or Golden Mean - The quotient of any Fibonacci number and it’s predecessor approaches Phi, represented as ϕ (1.618), the Golden ratio. This iteration can continue both ways, infinitely. The Golden Ratio can be seen from a Chambered Nautilus to a Spiraling Galaxy The Golden Ratio can be applied to any number of geometric forms including circles, triangles, pyramids, prisms, and polygons. Sunflowers have a Golden Spiral seed arrangement. If you graph any number system, eventually patterns appear. Our universe and the numbers not only go on infinitely linear, but even it’s short segments have infinite points. Image source Phi Golden Ratio

Experimentamos terror ante el vacío No es de extrañar que tras este pasado marcado por la obsesión compulsiva de llenar el vacío, mucha gente, cuando se enfrenta a una transparencia en blanco, se siente en la obligación de llenarla de contenidos. ¿Por qué llenamos nuestras transparencias de datos, texto, gráficos e imágenes? Haz del vacío el centro de tu obra El espacio en blanco (o negativo) es tan importante como los elementos positivos que se ubican sobre ese espacio.

Noche estrellada, de Van Gogh – La Cueva del Cíclope
En las profundidades azules, las estrellas resplandecían, verdosas, amarillas, blancas, rosas, más brillantes…VINCENT VAN GOGH Noche Estrellada, pintado en 1889. Hemos estado trabajando con este cuadro, titulado Noche Estrellada. A Van Gogh siempre le interesaron las escenas nocturnas. Un detalle de las pinceladas del cuadro Lo más importante de esta pintura es el cielo estrellado y luminoso, con la luna en la parte derecha, y un enorme ciprés a la izquierda, que domina la escena. Los colores que utiliza son una gama de azules y verdes para el cielo y el paisaje, que contrastan con el amarillo y blanco de las estrellas y la luna. Otro detalle de las pinceladas Para trabajar con este cuadro, nos hemos ayudado de Google Art Project, un espacio que muestra grandes obras maestras de todos los tiempos en alta resolución. En 1971, el músico Don McLean compuso una canción dedicada a este cuadro y a Van Gogh. Nosotros la hemos utilizado como banda sonora de nuestra galería de trabajos. >>Más info:

While even the most daring critic would find it difficult to describe computer viruses as "art," there's a certain bizarre artistry mixed among the prankster-ism and the outright cruelty of their creators. Back in the day my brand was the TDK SA 90, although the Maxell XLII would do in a pinch. Between 1979 and 2010 Sony sold 400 million Walkmen and the compact design and engineering of these mechanically complicated and ingenious devices still feels relevant.

Internet art - Wikipedia
Internet art (often referred to as net art) is a form of digital artwork distributed via the Internet. This form of art has circumvented the traditional dominance of the gallery and museum system, delivering aesthetic experiences via the Internet. In many cases, the viewer is drawn into some kind of interaction with the work of art. Artists working in this manner are sometimes referred to as net artists. Internet art can happen outside the technical structure of the Internet, such as when artists use specific social or cultural Internet traditions in a project outside of it. The term Internet art typically does not refer to art that has been simply digitized and uploaded to be viewable over the Internet. Theoriest and curator Jon Ippolito defined "Ten Myths" about Internet art in 2002. He cites the above stipulations, as well as defining it as distinct from commercial web design, and touching on issues of permanence, archivability, and collecting in a fluid medium. See also
Einstein’s Camera — Matter
Adam Magyar is a computer geek, a college dropout, a self-taught photographer, a high-tech Rube Goldberg, a world traveler, and a conceptual artist of growing global acclaim. But nobody had ever suggested that he might also be a terrorist until the morning that he descended into the Union Square subway station in New York. At the time, Magyar was immersed in a long-running techno-art project called Stainless, creating high-resolution images of speeding subway trains and their passengers, using sophisticated software he created and hardware that he retrofitted himself. The scanning technique he developed—combining thousands of pixel-wide slices into a single image—allows him to catch passengers unawares as they hurtle through dark subway tunnels, fixing them in haunting images filled with detail no ordinary camera can capture. “What are you doing?” “I’m scanning trains,” Magyar said. It was not the first time that Adam Magyar has had to explain his work to mystified observers.

#CultureIsDigital - DCMS blog
As Minister for both Digital and Culture I have been struck by how well these two worlds of creativity and technology complement each other. While travelling the length and breadth of the UK, I’ve seen countless examples of how cultural organisations are using digital technology to increase access, interest and excellence in the arts. And I have seen digital businesses using design and artistic creativity to meet their users’ needs. Just as digital can help people access culture in new ways, and more widely, so cultural content can drive people towards digital, and to adopting new technologies as they emerge. So today I am launching our new Culture is Digital project with a conversation between Government and both tech and the cultural world about how we push this natural synergy further. This project builds on our commitment in the Culture White Paper to review the digitisation of our public collections and the enhancement of the online cultural experience.

Artists' Paper Register | AAH - Association of Art Historians
The Artists' Papers Register is a finding list of archival documents relating to artists, designers and craftspeople in publicly-accessible collections in the U.K. The Artists' Papers Register is available online, for free, at www.apr.ac.uk The Register includes papers relating to painters, sculptors, designers, design groups and studios, craftspeople, those engaged in design occupations within manufacturing, and others – such as curators and historians – associated with these activities, regardless of nationality or status. The papers of architects and photographers have not been sought out, though architects’ papers may have been noted where they relate to interior or furniture design, and photographers where their work is not purely fashion photography. APR Updates Updates to Repositries also appear annually in our October Bulletin.
