Cubism, highly influential visual arts style of the 20th century.

Cubism was one of the most influential styles of the twentieth century. It is generally agreed to have begun around 1907 with Picasso’s celebrated painting Demoiselles D’Avignon which included elements of cubist style. The name ‘cubism’ seems to have derived from a comment made by the critic Louis Vauxcelles who, on seeing some of Georges Braque’s paintings exhibited in Paris in 1908, described them as reducing everything to ‘geometric outlines, to cubes’.

Cubism opened up almost infinite new possibilities for the treatment of visual reality in art and was the starting point for many later abstract styles including constructivism and neo-plasticism.

Line: an actual or implied mark, path, mass, or edge, where length is dominant.

Form: the volume and shape of a three-dimensional work, perhaps including unfilled

areas that are integral to the work as a whole.

Lecture & Vocabulary

Computer End User Terms

Portable Networks Graphic (.png):  

Portable Network Graphics (PNG) is a raster graphics file format that supports lossless data compression. PNG was created as an improved, non-patented replacement for Graphics Interchange Format (GIF), and is the most used lossless image compression format on the Internet.

 

RAW (.dng, .nef, .crw):  

A camera raw image file contains minimally processed data from the image sensor of either a digital camera, image scanner, or motion picture film scanner. Raw files are named so because they are not yet processed and therefore are not ready to be printed or edited with a bitmap graphics editor.

 

Tagged Image File Format (.tiff):  

The ability to store image data in a lossless format makes a TIFF file a useful image archive, because, unlike standard JPEG files, a TIFF file using lossless compression (or none) may be edited and re-saved without losing image quality. This is not the case when using the TIFF as a container holding compressed JPEG.

 

Encapsulated Post Script (.eps):  

Encapsulated Postscript Vector graphics (Adobe Illustrator) EPS is a file extension for a graphics file format used in vector-based images in Adobe Illustrator. EPS stands for Encapsulated PostScript. An EPS file can contain text as well as graphics.

 

Computer graphics:

refers to visual images made with the assistance of computers. Computer graphics are often made with software called drawing, painting, illustrating and photographic programs or applications.

 

2D Graphics:

Displayed representation of a scene or an object along two axes of reference: height and width (x and y).

 

3D Graphics:

Displayed representation of a scene or an object that appears to have three axes of reference: height,

width, and depth  (x, y, and z).

 

DPI:

acronym for Dots Per Inch - a gauge of visual clarity on the printed page or on the computer screen.

Rendering:

The process of creating life-like images on a screen using mathematical models and formulas to add shading, color, and lamination to a 2D or 3D wireframe.

Digitize:

Photoshop, Video, Digital Photography, etc to convert linear, or analog, data into digital data which can be used by the computer
