100 Ideas That Changed Art by Maria Popova From cave paintings to the internet, or how art and cultural ideology shape one another. On the heels of yesterday’s 100 Ideas That Changed Photography comes 100 Ideas That Changed Art (public library) — a succinct account of the most influential developments in the history of art, from cave paintings to the internet, compiled by art historian and broadcaster Michael Bird. From conceptual innovations like negative space (#98), color codes (#33), and street art (#94) to landmarks of communication like making books (#21), propaganda (#12), and handwriting (#24) to ideological developments like “less is more” (#30), protest (#79), and the body as surface (#9), each idea is contextualized in a 500-word essay with key visual examples.
Creating digital archives of 3D artworks 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. 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.
The difference between Equality and Equity in design e·qual·i·ty: the state of being equal, especially in status, rights, and opportunities. in Mathematics, a symbolic expression of the fact that two quantities are equal; an equation. As part of our series on Diversity in Design, we’ve written here about the benefits of having a diverse team, and the state of diversity and inclusion in the design industry. Another word that often accompanies “Diversity” when we research about the topic, is “Equality”. So, we decided to dive a little deeper into this other side of the equation. The relationship between these two words is quite obvious: if you want people from minority groups represented in a certain population (in our case, in the design industry), you have to make sure people are given equal opportunities and are treated with equal rights across the board.

Chris Jordan - Midway On Midway Atoll, a remote cluster of islands more than 2000 miles from the nearest continent, the detritus of our mass consumption surfaces in an astonishing place: inside the stomachs of thousands of dead baby albatrosses. The nesting chicks are fed lethal quantities of plastic by their parents, who mistake the floating trash for food as they forage over the vast polluted Pacific Ocean. For me, kneeling over their carcasses is like looking into a macabre mirror.
Iris Scans And Reincarnation: The Science And Spirituality Behind "I Origins" "I generate constantly," says Mike Cahill, the filmmaker who put a thoughtful spin on the sci-fi genre with Another Earth three years ago and who now re-teams with star Brit Marling on the new science-themed drama I Origins. "I have this document on my computer called 'The Journal of Ideas.' Anything I ever come up with, I put it in there and when certain elements come together to give a project weight and momentum and movement, I'll explore it further. I Origins is one of those ideas I've been thinking about forever." 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.

How Technology is Hijacking Your Mind — from a Former Insider Estimated reading time: 12 minutes. “It’s easier to fool people than to convince them that they’ve been fooled.” — Unknown. I’m an expert on how technology hijacks our psychological vulnerabilities. That’s why I spent the last three years as a Design Ethicist at Google caring about how to design things in a way that defends a billion people’s minds from getting hijacked. When using technology, we often focus optimistically on all the things it does for us.
