Sculpture Review - technology edition
The new edition of Sculpture Review magazine hitting the streets now is devoted entirely to the use of technology for the creation of art & sculpture.

The cover article in fact was written by our own Harry Abramson, our Director of Art Services. I am hopeful this edition and in particular this piece by Harry, will spark discussion on this forum.

See for a preview.

As an example, the cover image was entirely digitally created as a photo quality rendering from a high resolution 3D polygon model of an original piece we laser scanned at a museum in Philadelphia.

We hope you all find this article and edition interesting and Harry and I would be happy to discuss further.

Thanks for the link. I went to the ISC's conference in New Orleans the year beofore Katrina hit and there was a good panel about this. I don't remember the term "formtography" being in use then, though that could be a fault of this fading memory of mine.

Re: Sculpture Review - technology edition
Glad to see a topic started on this edition. I was pleased when we were contacted for two of the stories in the magazine. Its nice to see how other companies are using some of the same technologies we are and how they have implemented them in their line of work. Like posted before any questions or discussion would be great, especially in the Exploring Digital Technologies section. We are one of the many companys working on The American monument and I havent seen much discussion about this piece on the net. I would love the oppotunity to anwer any and all questions about the project and the technology being used to keep the overall costs low on this monumental project.
