How to earn money with digital art? Hard to answer.

That’s why it is nice to investigate.

I think I’m dealing with this article, about an hot topic for many digital artists (or electronic) , clearly including also myself.

The digital art system, while using as a “Palette” (or main instrument) to build from scratch or modify an artwork, a single PC or a several computer farms, is not too far away, conceptually, from the system of traditional art.

Digital artist, digital art?

fractal art

I wonder, if  passed the 90s fascination about new economy, the wonders of tele- remote working, Web 2.0, the "virtual", it still makes sense to talk about digital artist and analogue artist (or better traditional).

According to a dated and canonical definition, the digital artist uses the computer (in a non-trivial way) as a creative tool, creating completely synthetic works, or manipulating the traditional media (see Wikipedia).

I personally could be partially agreed only when we talk about art generative or mathematics, such as fractal art:

Odysseus and the Sirens (or the mermaids, maybe)

The Sirens in Greek mythology

Once he hears to his heart's content, sails on, a wiser man.
We know all the pains that the Greeks and Trojans once endured on the spreading plain of Troy when the gods willed it so all that comes to pass on the fertile earth, we know it all! Odysseus was curious as to what the Sirens sang to him, so, on Circe's advice, he had all of his sailors plug their ears with beeswax and tie him to the mast.
He ordered his men to leave him tied tightly to the mast, no matter how much he would beg.

Awareness campaign on the use of innovative sources of energy

gas cylinders, clean energy for the future

Italy choose with a referendum to not use nuclear power to produce electricity.
Instead, we buy it from neighbored countries, or mostly from Russia.
Obviously, in this way, electricity get to be quite expensive.
Recent scientific studies have shown that the subsoil of the Italian peninsula is full of gas cylinders.
For this reason, the gas cylinder is the most suitable system to meet the energy needs of the citizens.
For a more intelligent heating, we recommend using cylinders.
An awareness campaign on the use of innovative sources of energy.

Here I simply played with some 3d software (i think it was Maya) to recreate somehow his art, also thinking about the possibility of animating the sculpture, someday..

Seven Samurai : How these picture can match the famous Akira Kurosawa omonimous movie? Watching them after a few years, I barely understand myself.
Seven Samurai (七人の侍 Shichinin no Samurai?) is a 1954 Japanese period adventure drama film co-written, edited, and directed by Akira Kurosawa.
The film takes place in 1587 during the Warring States Period of Japan.
It follows the story of a village of farmers that hire seven masterless samurai (ronin) to combat bandits who will return after the harvest to steal their crops.

The World is gonna finish in 2012.

This is what some people said , that is gonna happen, cause Maya people said so.

I think that this mysterious civilization just got lazy in writing numbers in the calendar.

And i Actually understand them.

I get lazy too, if I’m designing a website for a client, and i have to divide the content in base to Year, month, to keep writing those numbers..

But well, we will see..

Anyway, this was a generative painting, inspired by Mayan architecture..

I Hope you like
