Ass. 2 intro/1

First of all many artist who create digital art are impacted greatly from other artist throughout history. “Duchamp’s work, in particular, has been extremely influential in the realm of digital art: the shift from object to concept embodied in many of his works can be seen as predecessor of the virtual object as a structure in process, and his ready mades connect with the appropriation and manipulation of ‘found’ (copied) images that play a dominant role in many digital artworks” (pg 13).  Digital artists expanded on the concepts of movements such as Fluxus and conceptual art creating something new.

These “traditional” ways of looking at art through history is being changed into new media and into a new realm of tradition. These artists often take “ready made” pieces of art and change it to make it their own. Scott Griesbach took an amazing piece of art form Jackson Pollock and incorporated it into his own piece of digital art. He manipulated Polloks piece now creating a contour of a horses body.

“Internet art has been created to be seen by anyone, anywhere, anytime, and does not need a museum to be presented or introduced to the public. These pieces can be seen all around the world provided the viewer has internet. These works also do not need any sort of maintenance. They will last over time compared to other famous works that can and will deteriorate.

Digital art has also been used by law enforcement agencies to alter the facial structure of missing people or suspects. “Apart from the shifts that digital technologies have brought about in the realms of collage, montage, and composting, they also challenge traditional notions of realsism by facilitating the creation of alternative or simulated forms of reality, or a sense of the ‘hyperreal’. The concept of artistic realism has been inextricably interconnected with the history of photography” (pg 36). Manipulating images leads to certain dematerialization of naturalistic aspects of everyday life.

Digital art has changed history in the fact that artist take from the “ready made.” Artists pull from previous works of art and create something new and completely different yet sometimes still recognizable.  3D objects can be created using digital software. The computer is allows us to create art that could be done by hand but sometimes is often faster and the viewer gets a different effect. Some artists create an image on the computer but make it look as if it were by hand. While, other artists have the skill to make an image appear as if it were done on the computer, when it really was accomplished by hand.

Fading Flowers

August 26, 2009 at 8:53 pm (Uncategorized)


After searching the internet for hours for a website that was non related to creating art; i decided to stick with the ever so handy power point presentation application. I really enjoyed how the user can make pictures transparent. Therefore, that’s exactly what i did. Using many different images of flowers from google pictures allowed me to create the image as a whole. Also, changing certain floral images to sepia coloring to achieve the background; while leaving certain floral images as i found them, only changing the shape to make them round for the flower petals/stem and leaf.
