Artist’s Tools: Reverse-Engineering of Prototypes
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC
Rating
0.0 stars

Outputting the digital blueprint into a final fast prototype is important, but inputting a hand-made sculpture into the computer is as important in the creative process. There are many high-tech electronic devices that can help the artist generate form from his/her sculpture quickly. This process is called “reverse engineering of prototypes.” Touch Probes (Contact Method) The concept of the touch probe involves a measuring tip attached by several limbs with rotational joints. The design of the joints and limbs determines the reach of the touch probe. The measuring tip of the touch probe is used to measure the exact coordinates on the surface of the scanned object.

Art of Jerusalem: Power and Piety in the Holy Land
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted

Rating
0.0 stars

This course explores the art and architecture of Jerusalem from the reign of Herod through the Crusades, a period in which the city came under successive Jewish, Roman, Byzantine, Islamic, and Latin domination. Particular attention will be given to the repeated transformation of the landscape of Jerusalem through the destruction, construction, and modification of important religious and cultural monuments. We will gauge the role of Jerusalem as an object of desire for the dispossessed and for pilgrims of three faiths. In addition, we will explore how the accretion of myth and memory shaped the city‰Ûªs symbolic identity, and how this imaginary ideal, as expressed in art and architecture, emphasized or denied the physical and political realities of medieval Jerusalem.

Art of the Harlem Renaissance

The Harlem Renaissance of the 1920s and 1930s, known during that time as the Negro Renaissance, affected a sea change in literary and artistic production. Whereas the early-20th-century avant-gardes in Europe had looked to black culture only as "primitive" inspiration, Harlem Renaissance practitioners asserted their status as agents of modern history and creators of black modernism. This important and tumultuous transformation can be tracked in the artistic expressions of the period, and in relation to key texts that shaped the movement. Planned visits to Harlem sites and collections, as well as to timely exhibitions elsewhere in New York, make this course exceptionally well suited to CCNY.

This course will explore art since 1980 and consider the questions and ideas embedded in contemporary art in relation to prior historical movements. We will consider a range of questions, including approaches on how to write about contemporary art, when and where to apply philosophical theories, and what a social historical context for a body of work might be, as well as who, how, and why some artists make it into the art history books and others don‰Ûªt. There will be weekly presentations of texts in class and writing assignments that will encourage students to present their opinions on current exhibitions in relation to examples of the literature discussed in class.
