http://lrrpublic.cli.det.nsw.edu.au/lrrSecure/Sites/LRRView/11562/11562_show1.htm?keepThis=true&TB_iframe=true&height=550&width=900 }The Virgin and Child with St. Anne and the Infant St. John the Baptist ('The Burlington House Cartoon'), c. 1499-1500, charcoal on canvas, 141.5 x 104.6 cm, National Gallery, London. In this daringly monumental drawing the entangled figures of St. Mary and St. Anne with Jesus and St. John the Baptist dissolve into the canvas, the drawing unfinished. St. Anne points upwards, a reference to Jesus’ destiny, while St. John the Baptist gestures a blessing, indicating his future role in the life of Christ. Improved with age the scene now appears like a mysterious vision, incomplete in places, a strange landscape looming behind the figures, lifelike in their rendering. The technical term cartoon refers to the intention with such large drawings to transfer the image to another canvas for the purpose of painting a final image. The survival of this work however can be attributed to there being no final painting resulting from it, and it stands as the only surviving large-scale drawing by Leonardo.
http://www.cnet.com/news/artist-vibrates-water-with-the-power-of-thought/ } On her head, she wears a Neurosky EEG headset -- the same device used in the Necomimi emotion-displaying cat ears . It monitors her alpha, beta, delta, and theta brainwaves and her eye movement. This information is fed into Processing, where it's translated into sound waves in real time, which are then fed into the speakers. To calibrate the EEG to her thoughts, Park associated five different emotions with different people -- anger, sadness, hatred, desire, and happiness. As she practiced, she would adjust the audio output of these thoughts to create a specific pattern to play across the surface of the water. Park isn't the first to use EEG to create sound from thoughts. Last year, Japanese musician Masaki Batoh used EEG to transform the brainwaves of earthquake survivors into haunting melodies as a sort of therapy. Park's goal was different, yet similar -- to find stillness in emotion.

All work will be produced 'live', in real-time, with some elements continuing indefinitely. The exhibition can also be described as 'generative' in that it will develop and expand over time, by acting as a point of connection for different generative practices across disciplines, pointing to the relationship of visual arts to other media - especially sound works, performance, and issues relating to chaos theory and complexity, neural networks and artificial life. The exhibition will operate as if a studio or laboratory space, as a reception points for work streaming from elsewhere and as a portal to other spaces. There will be sounds, images, and objects, distributed online and offline, all generating their contents and possible meanings live throughout the course of the exhibition.

http://lenalevin.com/artofseeing/2016/04/16/why-painting-3-a-museum-and-a-room-of-ones-own/ }I love museums. With few exceptions, they are the only institution we have which gives everyone a chance to see the greatest, most powerful, most breathtaking paintings in the history of humankind. Whenever I hear of a masterpiece in a private collection, unaccessible, hidden from public view, what I feel is a pain of loss, made even more painful by the fact that I have only a hint, a mere shadow of knowledge of the thing lost. And yet the very concept of art museum generates a disruptive disconnect between art and life — the disconnect which gives rise to the question this series is intended to explore: does the modern world need painting? Art of seeing serves painters and art lovers — anyone who loves the art of painting and is eager to learn more about it and of it. Art of seeing's educational program works fully within the framework of generosity-based economy.

http://www.mediaartnet.org/themes/generative-tools/generative-art/1/ }The Methodology of Generative Art, by Tjark Ihmels and Julia Riedel. Article is 11 (web)pages long. "Even Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart developed a "musical game of dice" that contained most of the elements that today are associated with generative tools. The piece carries the explanatory subtitle "Composing waltzes with two dice without knowing music or understanding anything about composing. For this, Mozart composed 176 bars of music, from which sixteen were chosen from a list using dice, which then produced a new piece when performed on a piano. Sixteen bars, each with eleven possibilities, can result in 1,116 unique pieces of music. Using this historical example, the methodology of generative art can be appropriately described as the rigorous application of predefined principles of action for the intentional exclusion of, or substitution for, individual aesthetic decisions that sets in motion the generation of new artistic content out of material provided for that purpose. “

http://www.onethousandandonedreams.com/ }Click “SHOW THUMBNAILS” . Artist Yasmina Alaoui and photographer Marco Guerra love to tantalize their audience. In their life-sized photographic series “one thousand and one dreams”, statuesque bodies appear frozen in time, covered from head to toe in meticulously detailed, contemporary Arabic Henna patters. Captivated by the realism and sculptural quality of each human form, the viewer becomes lost in an illusion. Each artwork begins with a black and white nude photograph by Guerra. Layers of Alaoui’s complex ink drawings are then fused with the portrait, with breathtaking results. Originally from Chile and Morocco respectively, the couple has been collaborating since 2005, and have successfully been exhibited and collected internationally.
http://www.pantarbe.com/ecourses/ecademy/tutorial08.htm }See with new eyes, listen with new ears, feel a renewed artistic respect for what is possible. This may entail abandoning many of the most comfortable and habitual patterns of creativity the artist has become accustomed to. The process of truly living the artist life and reshaping the creative wheel can mean abandoning everything that feels safe and familiar.. Artistic freedom inspires a loss of control, a reordering of the visionary core within. This loss of control is not of the artist’ sanity, ethics, or morals but of one’s conformity to the consensus entrapments.

Then run a clustering algorithm on those pixels, to extract a number of clusters. The centroids of those clusters them make a representative palette of the image. The R package earthtones by Will Cornwell, Mitch Lyons, and Nick Murray — now available on CRAN — does all this for you. Pass the get_earthtones function a latitude and longitude, and it will grab the Google Earth tile at the requested zoom level (8 works well for cities) and generate a palette with the desired number of colors.

http://urbanart-photography.eu/ }Urban Art Photography by “Brenna Urban”. Jan Brennenstuhl aka Brenna, born 1988 in the Eastern-part of Berlin, Germany, grew up in between mortal remains of the real socialism and multicultural, subcultural ideas of squatting and creative designing of public space. Influenced by those two contrary mindsets, he started photographing street art in 2006 to document this breaking new, but totally temporary form of urban art. “For years now, also I’m documenting street artists in Berlin and other European metropolises like Paris, London, Barcelona and Madrid and just set up my yet fragmentary photo-portfolio! Check it out. “The resulting photo-series gives another view on street art and graffiti by focusing not on the artwork but on the artist. Recommended.

http://www.ancient-origins.net/myths-legends/fiery-cosmic-egg-hildegard-von-bingen-001999 }The language of prophecy is frequently enigmatic, bewildering, and even disconcerting. Hildegard von Bingen is another in history’s long line of clairvoyants and prognosticators. She entered the convent either as an older child or a young teenager at Disibodenberg, Germany. By the mid-12th century she was serving as the mother superior of the monastery she had founded at Rupertsberg on the banks of the Rhine River. At a very early age Saint Hildegard had begun experiencing regular holy visions that continued throughout her lifetime. In addition to being a nun with mystical and prophetic insights, she was a true pre-Renaissance polymath: political and social moralist, musical composer, poet, naturalist, herbalist, gemologist, author of medicinal and botanical texts, and playwright. She even penned the earliest morality play.
