SIGGRAPH 92 Educator's Slide Set on 2D Art

Edited by Cynthia Beth Rubin, Produced by Diana Tuggle

Many computer artists who also teach hold the strong conviction that the real power of the computer as an instrument for leading us to a new aesthetic lies in the process of artist interaction with the computer in the development of an image. Artists have always changed their images as they evolved even when working in traditional media, but often the technical limitations of producing, for example, a painting, kept artists from making radical changes. With the computer, these limitations are removed, and the artist can work in a non-linear fashion, moving back and forth from simple to complex, adding and reducing elements, as well as modifying them, endlessly. In fact, the same initial image may end up as several finished images, or several finished images may give birth to a combined new work.

The SIGGRAPH 92 educator's slide set, which is focused on 2D still images, is designed to show this process. To do this, we show several images by 13 artists, including images which are variations on a theme, or images which were stages in development or the beginning components
of the images. Our goal is to reveal the philosophy of the artist through these mini-sets.

In Computer Graphics, we have printed one image from each of the 13 artists. The full color 35mm slide set contains all 78 slides. If you are interested in the full set, please contact us.
