DXARTS (and my work and teaching) were featured in a long article by Seattle Times arts critic Michael Upchurch which appeared on the Sunday, March 23 issue of the Pacific Northwest Magazine.
On a purer visual-arts front, “Convex Mirror” by graduate student Robert Twomey created highly roboticized images earlier this year in a street-front window on Amazon’s campus in South Lake Union. The piece used a CNC (computer numerical controlled) plotter, a 180-degree circular fish-eye lens and some custom software to produce its result.
A gel ink pen was fixed in a housing that was suspended on two strings against an acid-free mat board. Computer-filtered input from the camera guided the pen’s bobbing progress across the mat board. The result was a study in duration and evanescence. The building across the street was drawn in sharp detail. Passing cars and pedestrians registered as mere wisps, if that.
