      Si une image peut en cacher une autre, ce sont des dizaines voire des centaines d’autres images que recèlent et révèlent à la fois ces « tableaux en mouvement ». Fixe, l’image de départ s’anime en même temps qu’elle se transforme au moyen d’une véritable mécanique : tels des prélèvements dans l’image venant s’y superposer et lui conférer ainsi une certaine épaisseur, des rouages de nombre et de taille variables créent, une fois activés, une recomposition cinématique de l’image qui, initialement figurative, devient abstraite. Mue par une dynamique dont le caractère aléatoire et relativement incontrôlable contraste avec la précision que requiert la mise au point technique du système complexe de l’engrenage, elle semble, loin de se défaire, se régénérer, démultipliée et (ré)interprétée à l’envi.

      • Musee du Louvre, Fortress of Beauty


        from Marcus Chun / Added

        Located at the center of Paris, the Louvre was originally built as a fortress in the late 12th century under Philip II. (its stone brick foundations are visible today in the basement of the museum). It was later converted into the official residential palace, undergoing many changes over the years until Louis XIV decided to move to Versailles in 1682. During the French Revolution, the National Assembly decreed that the Louvre should be used as a museum to display the nation's masterpieces. The museum opened its doors to the public on August 1793 with an exhibition of 537 paintings and the rest is, more or less, history. In the 1980's, it was with some controversy that the glass pyramid design by Chinese American architect I.M. Pei was greeted by the French public. However, the forward thinking of President Francois Mitterrand with his Grands Projects prevailed, and in 1989 a new architectural icon was born. One of the world's 2 or 3 greatest museums, and at a head count of 9.7 million in 2012 THE most visited, the Louvre holds 35,000 artworks displayed over an area of 652,300 square feet (so forgive me if I've left out an item or two). This footage having been shot several years ago, some of the artworks may have since been moved: the rooms may have changed, but the suspects remain the same. ;-) More recent music by the superb Florian Fricke and the wondrous Michael Stearns, the rest from various classical sources.

              This is a reconstitution of Johannes Vermeer's workshop based on some of his paintings and a few known details from his contemporaries. I'm trying to see if a game engine can be successfully used in a broadcast project. This is real time capture made in Unreal Engine 4. All 3d models made with Cinema 4D.

              • The girl with earring or not?

                The painting is a tronie, the Dutch 17th-century description of a 'head' that was not meant to be a portrait. It depicts a European girl wearing an exotic dress, an oriental turban, and a large pearl earring. In 2014, Dutch astrophysicist Vincent Icke raised doubts about the material of the earring and argued that it looks more like polished tin than pearl on the grounds of the specular reflection, the pear shape and the large size of the earring. The work is oil on canvas and is 44.5 cm (17.5 in) high and 39 cm (15 in) wide. It is signed "IVMeer" but not dated. It is estimated to be painted around 1665. After the most recent restoration of the painting in 1994, the subtle color scheme and the intimacy of the girl's gaze toward the viewer have been greatly enhanced During the restoration, it was discovered that the dark background, today somewhat mottled, was initially intended by the painter to be a deep enamel-like green. This effect was produced by applying a thin transparent layer of paint, called a glaze, over the present-day black background. However, the two organic pigments of the green glaze, indigo and weld, have faded.

                    In one of the renewed exhibitions in Museum Prinsenhof Delft, a motorized multiscreen installation serves as the apotheosis of the success story of Delfts Blauw, the world-famous Dutch pottery product. The Delftware-industry brought the city of Delft status and success; it’s shrewd invention, highly skilled production and worldwide appeal testify to the inventiveness that is Delfts most enduring trait. The former cloister chapel of the historical building is dedicated to the worldwide success of Delft Blue. In the heart of the room a ‘monument’ of Delftware masterpieces is surrounded by the immersive movie; it tells the story of Delft and Delft Blue as the city-changing commercial success it once was. Highlights of Delft, Delftware and innovation are connected, literally: the seventeen screens move towards each other every scene. Large clock arrow with video is the trigger for a sequence of innovative and creative milestones. We see Delft and the people of Delft: the arrival of the 'plateelbakkers' (the ceramists), via Vermeer to the Technical University of Delft and the future. As the projection moves around the monument and the public, the story moves from past to present. In an endless loop, the scenes pass on moments in time ‘to each other’. The public is immersed in a cycle of birth, invention and succession.

                      A Rembrandt műhelyében készült Johannes Wtenbogaert portréja előtt a kiváló Rembrandt kutató, Gary Schwartz mesél a Rembrandt Research Project célkitűzéseiről, és megmutatja okostelefonján, hogy a kiállításon látható portré egy, a Rijksmuseum-ban őrzött Rembrandt festmény magas színvonalú variánsa. Utóbbi művet a remonstráns prédikátor, Wtenbogaert egyik csodálója rendelte meg a festőtől. "Gary Schwartz is known, among many other things, as a prominent Rembrandt scholar and a publisher. More importantly in this context, he founded CODART in 1998 and served as its director for over seven years, after which he continued to work as our webmaster until early 2009. Born in Brooklyn, New York, Schwartz moved in the 1960s to the Netherlands, where he found his two great loves: Dutch art and his wife, Loekie. After working for decades in art history and publishing, he became the founder of our now indispensable network."
