Towards a Digital Renaissance? Art + Science = Technology? Warhol’s Marilyn in ‘True Colour 3D’

Mona Lisa re-visualised as a movable object in ‘True Colour 3D’ opens her eyes when tilted

Your images are stunningly good” wrote Dr Martin Kemp – Chair of the Institute of Materials.

Very promising technology” came from an associate of the National Institute for Health Research.

Maybe science needs art to allow for conceptual quantum leaps rather than incremental step changes for innovation?

In the spirit of a ‘digital renaissance’, here are some images of touch tables in galleries that would make our re-visualisations very exciting as movable 3D objects:

 

And here are paintings from the Tate website – as original and re-visualised:

 

Plato said we need to match what is before our eyes [perceptions] with what is behind our eyes [concepts]. Science tends to ‘model’. And mathematical concepts don’t match physical realities. May our software help to build bridges across the chasms between our minds…
