The History of Art - Vector GraphicsThe earliest 2D computer graphics were all vector graphics.
One of the first uses of vector graphic displays was the US SAGE air defence system. Vector graphics systems were only retired from U.S. en route air traffic control in 1999, and are likely still in use in military and specialised systems. Vector graphics were also used on the TX-2 at the MIT Lincoln Laboratory by computer graphics pioneer Ivan Sutherland to run his program Sketchpad in 1963.
Subsequent vector graphics systems, most of which iterated through dynamically modifiable stored lists of drawing instructions, include Digital's GT40. There was a home gaming system that used vector graphics called Vectrex as well as various arcade games like Asteroids and Space Wars. Storage scope displays, such as the Tektronix 4014, could display vector images but not modify them without first erasing the display.
Modern vector graphics displays can sometimes be found at laser light shows, where two fast-moving X-Y mirrors position th
Art History - Renaissance: MannerismAs part of the Art History project being hosted by #communityrelations and being built by various members of the community, I am here to give you a brief introdcution to Renaissance Painting, with a focus on the Mannerist style.
Mannerism was a style during the high Renaissance (the 1500s) in Italy. In chronological order, Classical Renaissance preceeded it and the Baroque Period followed in Italy (see ~Supaslim from December 16th-18th for Baroque Art). But mannerism stayed popular outside of Italy, in much of Northern Europe until the 17th century. The markers of the Mannerist style are very long proportions, lack of obvious persepctive, odd or unlikely settings and very stylized poses and expressions. Michelangelo's styled was considered to be Early Mannerist and later Mannersit artists sought to immitate his style.
Mannerism, in content, focused mainly on the popular religious and mythological themes of the 16th century.
Art History: Animation History Day 1/2By Morgan!
Part 1||Part 2
Over the next two days, I will highlight the main elements in the history of the moving art form that is animation. To animate means to bring to life, and the past hundred or so years have proven that art has come to life in one of the most complex and dedicated art forms around.
I will use timelines, professional terminology and descriptions to give a very brief rundown of the history up until present day.
Bearing in mind, although animation is one of the newer forms of art, there is an extensive, exhaustive history on it, and I suggest further reading if you so wish! (Further reading will be applied on Day 2).
All images are from Wikipedia or Corbis unless otherwise stated.
Day 1 Introduction to the common methods of animation and pre-1900s Animation
Day 2 1930s; The Golden Ages of Animation and brief rundown of the Digital Takeover (1930s-Present); Epilogue.
