More importantly, students with visual impairment can now use the app to easily translate graphs into musical notes. Commenting on this new feature, Google states that When they first shared this feature with their partners at the Exploratorium, ‘they saw more than an accessibility tool for users with low vision.

Concordia University Chicago - Art Lessons Welcome to Concordia University Chicago’s link to Artists and Their Art: Sharing Visual Stories, a tool to promote visual literacy through artwork. Recognizing visual cues in a work of art as well as being aware of the times and conditions in which an artist lived enables students to better interpret its imagery, draw conclusions about its effectiveness, and speak critically about the art. Art education research indicates students enjoy a richer art experience and improved visual comprehension when the following four disciplines are included in the art experience: Art History (the study of past artists), Art Aesthetics (response to art), Art Criticism (discussion of art using art vocabulary), and Art Production (hands-on making of art). Artists and Their Art: Sharing Visual Stories focuses mainly on art history by providing a biographical sketch of the artist, an image of one of the artist’s specific works and details about that work.
10 Online Clipboards for Easy Text Sharing March 11th, 2009 by Webmasterish in Articles Communicating and sharing our text online started with a great invention called Email. Since that time many services were introduced that followed that same objective. Today our methods of passing messages have come a long way, and the arrival of micro-blogging and its obvious dominance in that area, entailed the creation of services that would cover the limitations of the famous 140 characters we always seem to run out of. Assume the following scenario: You are communicating with a friend using Twitter; suddenly, a question that requires a detailed answer; you have a million reasons for not wanting to use your email; what to do? Lauren Kussro Hello all! I wanted to post some images of recent sculptural work that either hasn’t appeared on the blog in finished form, or has only appeared in poorly taken images. (oops!) At my recent show at the Stutz building I was able to get some pretty good images of the Chalice pieces, so I’ve included those even though the pieces themselves aren’t brand new. I also wanted to post some images of newer print work that I’ve been making in the past few months for exchanges and whatnot. Enjoy!
Alex Konahin Fine Line art The fine line graphic project by Latvian designer Alex Konahin made with dip pen using black ink or other materials, sometimes including his own blood, yuk! Every Single Name on This Entrancing Map Is a Music Reference My favorite song about California is Scott McKenzie’s 1967 easy-listening hippie anthem “San Francisco (Be Sure to Wear Flowers in Your Hair).” I’ll admit: It’s not the best song about the Golden State. But I still like it. When I was a teenager, years before ever visiting San Francisco, the saccharine song seemed to encompass all the promises of the West Coast: good vibrations, counter culture, and flower crowns (Coachella hadn’t ruined them yet). The “World Song Map” is designed to encourage that kind of imaginary meandering.
Hundreds of Vintage Posters Are Now Available to Download and Print 100% Free - Creators If the posters of today still had the look of those of yesteryear, would they still get tagged and trolled as often? Much work today, it seems, lacks the graphic audacity of yore, opting instead for forms and formats we've become accustomed to. That's why, when you find vintage posters in flea markets, you find prices that might suggest they were just printed.
Ad of the Day: This Remarkable Ad About Loneliness Rejects the Future of Robot Caregivers If you're gnawing at the bit for the return of Black Mirror, you'll find brief gratification in "BEN (Bionically Engineered Nursing)," an ad that offers a brief glimpse into the world of a woman and her care robot. Directed by David Wilson, and created by agency CLM BBDO for the Society of Saint-Vincent-de-Paul, the film introduces us to Claudine. When the story opens, she is dancing forlornly in her living room with BEN, her nurse. The rest of the video takes us a day backward, then guides us back to that moment. The most remarkable thing about this tiny snapshot in a life is its subtlety. Wilson resists the temptation to suggest a mutual emotional bond between the two characters; there is only what we ourselves project to be there.
Chris Jordan - Camel Gastrolith Here is a bizarre corollary to Midway, from halfway around the globe in the Arabian Desert. My scientist friend Marcus Eriksen mailed me this surreal mass of 500+ plastic bags and other shards of plastic, metal, and glass, from the lab of Dr Ulli Wernery, a veterinary researcher in Dubai who courageously studies the stomach contents of dead camels found in the nearby desert. After recovering from the visceral shock of opening the box and seeing the musty horror that it contained, I built an incrementally rotating lazy-susan turntable in my studio, and photographed the gastrolith frame by frame in half-degree increments with a 50MP Canon 5DsR lent to me by my Canon USA friend Mike Gurley. Then my friend and tech guru Ian Gilman compiled the frames into a high-resolution video, and as a soundtrack I added the centering resonant ring of my large Nepalese standing bell, recorded one quiet night in my studio by my friend Jim Hurst.
