About Ars Electronica What is Ars Electronica? Art, technology, society. Since 1979, Ars Electronica has sought out interlinkages and congruities, causes and effects. The ideas circulating here are innovative, radical, eccentric in the best sense of that term. Brittney Lee A few months ago, artists at the studio were given canvases and asked to create a piece of artwork based on any one of the 50 Disney animated features that inspires us. Once finished, these canvases will be sold at a charity auction later this year. I will pass along the details as soon as I have them, but for now I thought I would post a few photos of my finished piece:) My inspirational film of choice is (of course) The Little Mermaid. I knew that I wanted to work with paper for this piece, but I also wanted to utilize the large (18"x36") canvas that was given to me.

Hi-Fructose Magazine In his portrait series, the Austrian artist Aldo Tolino deconstructs, folds, reassembles and weaves printed photographs in order to create origami-like sculptural pieces. Tolino then re-photographs the works, converting the pieces back into two-dimensional objects. The disturbing quality of the images may not just be due to the fact that the folded faces appear distorted, disproportional and almost entirely stripped of identity. In their conversion back to a photographic object, these pieces also suggest a cycle of infinite reprocessing and deformation, wherein the portrait will only continue to move further away from the original “true” image. This perhaps serves to remind us of the precarious nature of photography itself; the lack of control we have over photographic images, the instability of their meaning and function, which can be both liberating and unsettling.

Digital Painting Gallery from Rado Javor Rado Javor is an amazing digital artist from Slovakia that brought digital painting to a hole new level. The first time I found his art I couldn’t believe what I was seeing! Armed with Photoshop, Corel Painter and 3DSMax, Rado Javor creates incredibly detailed illustrations from historical battles to sci fi or fantasy wallpapers. I must admit, I have fallen in love with his work, and thanks to that my desktop wallpapers have Rado Javor’s signature for almost a year. My only regret is that I can not find his illustrations in bigger resolutions and I am limited on using only some of them to greet me every time I open my computer. For more information, news and updated artworks feel free to visit the artist’s personal website or his Deviant Art profile.
