Skeleton / Self-portrait 21

In this project, Self-portrait 21, the 3D copy of the skull represents the true image (vera icon). This image has formed the basis for a facial reconstruction by a forensic anthropologist, who received the skull anonymously accompanied only by the information that it belonged to a man in his mid-40s born in Western Europe.

New 3D scanners reveal the artist’s hand in historic works

Who painted that? Who drew that? Who sculpted that?
The question of attribution has long been problematic for art historians and conservators. A change in the attribution of a work from a highly ranked artist to a lessor one, or to the “workshop of” or “circle of” the master, or the reverse elevation of a work from a lesser status to the hand of the master, can change the fortunes of museums, galleries and collectors literally overnight.

Explore Your Dual World - Human Face Video Mapping

Por ocasião do lançamento do seu primeiro smartphone com 2 cartões - Galaxy Y Duos - a Samsung fez algo surpreendente: uma projecção mapeada na cara de um humano! Este vídeo usa por inteiro a técnica de projecção mapeada para construir várias personagens numa face humana. As imagens foram projectadas directamente sobre um actor que serve como tela. Esta técnica de video-mapping, anteriormente vista em projecções espectaculares em edifícios e automóveis, utiliza neste vídeo a face humana como objecto único de trabalho.

Great visual on this young artist’s progression.
How my drawings have improved since I was 13 to 22.

A History of the Sky, A Yearlong Time-Lapse of the San Francisco Sky Shown in Mosaic of 360 Simultaneous Days

“A History of the Sky” by artist Ken Murphy is a yearlong time-lapse of the sky over San Francisco with an ingenious twist—each day is shown simultaneously as an individual time-lapse in a giant video mosaic encompassing 360 days. The lengthening and shortening of the days, San Francisco’s famous fog and peculiar weather patterns are all visible in the mosaic. In order to capture the photos (one every ten seconds or more than 3 million photos for the year) Murphy designed a time-lapse camera rig which he installed on the roof the Exploratorium museum.
