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
