Floating spinning

I came across this guy named Santtu Mustogen when I was browsing the web yesterday. He creates 3D objects and spins them around- it is artwork that cannot be found anywhere but on the internet! The INTER WEB.

here’s his website: http://www.santtumustonen.com/#

It just made me realize how much of what I do in this program (and how much of modern day art) can really only be seen through a computer screen. It’s crazy! Art has for so long been something tangible and view-able from all angles. I guess digital art can be seen by anyone who has a computer, so there’s a new angle that gives it a real advantage. But the aura of the artwork- the “subtly pervasive quality or atmosphere seen as emanating” from the thing (dictionary dot com)- has disappeared.

It’s still beautiful, though. Here is a video of a thumping heart that my friend Hiromi Sogo created: http://vimeo.com/23213188

and her website: http://www.hiromisogo.com/

Pretty amazing.

About Claire Shapleigh, Biomedical Visualization

Hi, my name is Claire and I'm in my second year of the Biomedical Visualization MS program at UIC. It's a combination of art and science, and it's pretty fun. So far I've dissected a human body and learned how to draw in 2D using a computer AND my hand, and I'm about to learn how to 3D model. Holler at me if you have any questions about the program!

    the 3d effect works really well, never seen that done other than with pictures.
