  3. Art The Use of Visual Information in Art  I am developing a tutorial at this site to demonstrate how visual information is used in art.

  4. Art Welcome to Color Matters - Table of Contents  Color plays a vitally important role in the world in which we live. Color can sway thinking, change actions, and cause reactions. It can irritate or soothe your eyes, raise your blood pressure or suppress your appetite. When used in the right ways, color can even save on energy consumption.As a powerful form of communication, color is irreplaceable. Red means "stop" and green means "go." Traffic lights send this universal message. Likewise, the colors used for a product, web site, business card, or logo cause powerful reactions. Color Matters!

  7. Art Knots on the Web (Peter Suber)   My major sections are on Knot TyingKnot Theory, and Knot Art. But knot lovers will understand that these distinctions are artificial. For example, a good practical knot is both a nugget of hard-won technology and a thing of beauty. Decorative knotting can be useful, and in any case requires uncommon dexterity and practical tying ability. Software developed to help mathematical knot theorists has produced some of the most beautiful knot images ever seen. So look at all three sections even if you think your interests are narrow.

  37. Piccassohead, a digital tool that allows users to create their own masterpieces using famous features drawn by Picasso, is a creation of award winning digital agency RFI Studios and global public relations company Ruder Finn. In addition to being a popular tool used by students and teachers internationally to learn about art and promote creativity, Picassohead is also a nod to Ruder Finn's longstanding admiration of art and artists. When co-founder and art aficionado David Finn began his company in the 1940s, his original goal was to bring art into corporations, and strengthen ties between the business and creative worlds. Though Ruder Finn quickly expanded and came to encompass vast areas of expertise in other industries, this was the beginning of a long history between Ruder Finn and art. Currently the firm still maintains an Arts consultancy in its Manhattan headquarters.
