The Illuminated Pixel
Nov 9, 2009
The artwork in this exhibition represents the final projects from the courses Intro to Digital Art and 3D Computer Modeling. Though they differ in approach they share a common thread, using the pixel as the primary method to generate images. Intro to Digital Art focuses on the pixel like the painter does, with pigment on canvas. The canvas is replaced by liquid crystal displays and the pigment by pixels created, processed, and printed. 3D Computer Modeling approaches the pixel from the point of view of the sculptor, making marks on form – with Cartesian space substituting for the form and raw geometry as the marks. The end result of using modern technologies is the same as a classical approach – a shared desire to make something unique, something meaningful, something beautiful; something we see and experience as a work of art.
