Title: Computers and Fine Arts

Computers and Fine Arts
  • Art Museums and Computers
  • The Artist and Computers
  • Computers and You

Art Museums and Computers
  • Computer Maintained Archives
  • Online Advertisement and Self-Endorsement
  • Art Restoration
  • Digital Art and Museums

Computer Maintained Archives
  • Private Archives
  • Most art museums have enormous inventories,
    most of which are not displayed to the public,
    but are constantly rotating through storage. It
    is quite a task to keep these collections
    organized. Before, archives were maintained only
    through log books and paper files. Today museums
    use databases to keep track of their inventory, a
    faster and more accurate method.

Computer Maintained Archives
  • Online collaboration between museums now makes it
    possible for the public to view their
  • The Art Museum Image Consortium (AMICO) is a
    not-for-profit association of art collecting
    institutions, including the Whitney Museum of
    American Art, SFMOMA, the Getty Museum, and the
    Albright-Knox Art Gallery. Through AMICO, these
    and other institutions provide access to digital
    documentation of their collections for
    educational use. Their digital library is
    available to universities and colleges, public
    libraries, and elementary, middle, and high
    schools, and the 2001 edition includes more than
    65,000 different works of art, from prehistoric
    goddess figures to contemporary sculpture. These
    works are fully documented, and all entries
    include basic cataloging information and may also
    include curatorial texts, detailed provenance
    information, multiple views of the work itself
    and other related multimedia.

Online Advertisement and Self-Endorsement
  • Websites provide a inexpensive and convenient way
    for museums to promote themselves. Not only can
    they announce coming attractions, but museums can
    give sample virtual tours of their new exhibits.
  • Museum of Bad Art (MOBA) receives far more hits
    to their website than visitors to their actual
    location in Boston.

Art Restoration
  • Nanotechnology is now used to salvage aging
  • Nanoparticles of calcium and magnesium
    hydroxide and carbonate have been used to restore
    and protect wall paints, such as Maya paintings
    in Mexico or 15th century Italian masterpieces.
    Nanoparticle applications were also used to
    restore old paper documents, where acidic inks
    have caused the cellulose fibers to break up, and
    to treat acidic wood from a 400-year-old

Art Restoration
  • Examples

Digital Art and Museums
  • MOCA (Museum of Contemporary Art) recently
    featured an exhibit called All Digital.
  • Index a large scale installation of projected
  • Life-writer - interactive installation of a
    type-writer that prints on a light sensitive
  • John Simonss Code Art kinetic compositions
    that move in patterns on laptop screens, or

Digital Art and Museums
  • MOCA (Museum of Computer Art) exclusively
    features digital art.

The Artist and Computers
  • Computer Aided Design
  • Creating Digital Art
  • Finding Career Opportunities
  • Visual Communication Design

Computer Aided Design
  • Computer-based tools that assist in creating
    models of three-dimensional objects. Not only
    does CAD enable users to create better structured
    results, but allows them to better predict cost
    and time consumption of actual construction
    before manufacturing the project.

Finding Career Opportunities
  • Web Forums
  • Web forums allow art students to communicate
    with each other and employers by posting threads
    requesting job information. Many employers
    looking to hire artists will post job openings on
    the forums. In some ways, these forums are more
    beneficial to the companies that hire the artists
    than the artists themselves. Forums provide
    limitless information of work opportunities, but
    also provide limitless competition.

Finding Career Opportunities
  • Online Portfolios
  • -Online portfolios provide new artists with a
    means to expose their work to the world without
    paying astronomical gallery fees. They have the
    option of adding their portfolio to their myspace
    or facebook accounts, creating a personal web
    page, or for a small fee, posting their
    portfolios on a professional portfolio website
    where it will be viewed by more employers.
    Downfall-larger risk of having work plagiarized.

Creating Digital Art
  • Fine Artists have lately incorporated traditional
    mediums such as painting, sculpture, printmaking
    and drawing, with digital or graphic art.

Computers and You
  • Adobe Photo-shop
  • Adobe Page-maker

Adobe Photoshop
  • A graphics editor popular with professionals in
    the visual communications field. Adobe produces
    basic programs that even amateurs can use to
    touch up, edit, or just play around with their
    own images.

Adobe Photoshop
  • What You Can Do with Adobe

Adobe Page-maker
  • A desktop publishing program suitable for
    beginners. Page-maker is primarily designed for
    publications such as corporate newsletters and
    the straight-news sections of newspapers, and
    brochures. It provides a very basic format for
    novices to create web pages with.

Online Profiles
  • Personal profiles are a new way for people to
    express themselves. Using MySpace or Facebook,
    people around the world can personalize their
    profiles by choosing different layouts,
    backgrounds, graphics, and photographs to
    decorate it. They can also post video and music
    clips if they so choose. These social networking
    website enable users to view and comment on each
    others work.
