Les secrets pour apprendre à dessiner vite et bien Mathematics in Art and Architecture Welcome to Mathematics in Art and Architecture! Course Content Additional Information Objectives of the Module The goal of the course is to study connections between mathematics and art and architecture. After taking this course you will look at the world with new eyes and notice mathematical structures around you. Topics to be Covered We start by studying tilings. Practical Information and Assessment This course is one of the new General Education Modules at the NUS. I will be away on conference leave from 6/1/04 to 12/1/04, so there will be no lectures on Tuesday 6/1 and Friday 9/1. There will be three hours of lectures and one hour of large group tutorial each week. I use a cordless microphone and walk around in class and ask questions. If you send me e-mail, please use the module code GEK1518 in the subject. The final exam counts 40% of your grade. Please do the homework in the same group as you do the project. I have a page with links to some past projects. IVLE Course Page Recommended Texts

Dessiner une fille gothique Nous allons voir étape par étape comment dessiner une fille "gothique" dans un style très influencé par les créations japonaises sur ce thème. Le noir est essentiel dans le style gothic, il est donc temps de placer un maximum de noir sur votre dessin, mais sachez bien gérer des zones de lumières pour ne pas «l’alourdir». Quand j’ai placé les grandes lignes de mon style, je peux repasser le tout dans les détails. Ce style s’accomode très bien de petits détails soignés, donc n’hésitez pas à aller dans ce sens.

Mathematical Art of M.C. Escher For me it remains an open question whether [this work]pertains to the realm of mathematics or to that of art. —M.C. Escher Introduction Self Portrait, 1948 Maurits Cornelis Escher created unique and fascinating works of art that explore and exhibit a wide range of mathematical ideas. He was born in Leeuwarden, Holland in 1898, and when he was in school his family planned for him to follow his father’s career of architecture. His work went almost unnoticed until the 1950’s, but by 1956 he had given his first important exhibition, was written up in Time magazine, and acquired a world-wide reputation. Escher-like motif on a building in The Hague, Netherlands. His work eventually appeared not only in printed form, but as commissioned or imitative sculptures on public buildings, as decorations on everything from neckties to mousepads, and in software written to automate the reproduction and manipulation of tesselations.

(1) Making Nothing Happen: Yeats, Heidegger, Pessoa, and the Emergence of Post-Romanticism | James Corby Humanities 1192. Early German Romanticism German Romanticism emerged out of a crisis in philosophy. failure of reflectivethought and thereby rupturing the subjectivism of thought’s finite, conceptualizing grasp, a spacemight be created in the artwork in which that which exceeds ordinary consciousness—variouslyreferred to as the absolute, being, or the unconditioned—may come forth and show itself in all of itsstrangeness and ungraspability. Thus, in the wake of philosophy’s seemingly futile endeavors, the most thatcan be achieved for Friedrich Schlegel (1772–1829) (and, to some degree, for Novalis (1772–1801)and perhaps even for Hölderlin (1770–1843)), using terminology influenced by Fichte even as herebels against him, is an alternating proof ( Wechselerweis ), a wavering ( Schweben between the day and anight that is completely other, between life and a visionary, Orpheus-like death ([14], pp. 193–195; [16], pp. 175–176; [17]; [4], pp. 264–266; [18], pp. 163–170). autopoietic

Impressionism 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. Impressionism emerged in France at the same time that a number of other painters, including the Italian artists known as the Macchiaioli, and Winslow Homer in the United States, were also exploring plein-air painting.

How to Build a Solar Heating Panel with Soda Cans If you’ve got good sun exposure on one side of your house, you can take advantage of free heat from the sun with this DIY solar heating panel, which uses old soda cans to collect and transfer the sun’s energy into your house. Sometimes, low-tech solar devices are much better than high-tech ones for home use, as they not only tend to be cheaper to make, but will also last much longer before any repairs or maintenance are necessary. And even better, they can be built in part from repurposed or recycled components, which is something you don’t see very often in new solar devices. This solar space heater design uses old soda cans to increase the surface area for heat transfer inside of it, and in its most basic design, uses no external power to move the air. Double-glazed glass or polycarbonate panels make up the front of the device, allowing the sun’s rays to enter it while restricting heat loss to the outside air, and the box is also insulated for more efficiency.
