How can certain technologies bring out the artist in you?
Art is a complex and varied field. We all know the classics: visual arts, sculpture, music, literature, architecture, scenic arts, etc. Nowadays, with the regular emergence of new technologies, artistic mediums are constantly multiplying and evolving. For current artists, the thinking behind a piece obviously still includes a research on a theme and a concept, but it also includes a research on the best medium to enhance the power of their message. Many artists are mastering new technologies to bring art to another level. For non-artists, creating art is a popular hobby that can bring many benefits to your health and your daily life. Here are some new mediums you could experiment if you want to create something different than your classic conception of art.
Clearly, 3D technologies are everywhere nowadays. We all know the printers and the possible artistic objects it could create. However, we might not all be familiar with other 3D technologies such as scanning or drawing. You could even combine every aspect of 3D technologies to create your masterpiece. If you know nothing on how these technologies work, or your knowledge is really basic, you can get the Solidworks student edition, a software that combines every aspect of 3D technologies you could possibly use as a beginner in a complete and user friendly 3D design solutions software. 3D technologies can offer more than just a printed object you designed. With 3D scanning you can easily get the forms or dimensions of a physical complex item and have every measurements directly in your computer. It can be essential if you’re planning on doing a reproduction, a creation based on something that already exists or a big piece for which you would need to know the exact measurements before you start building it.
Editing and mixing
For a few years now, editing and mixing software have become more and more accessible to everyone. It became really easy to create your own films, documentaries or soundtracks directly from your living room. As we all know, cinema is the 7th art form and artists like to experiment with it to create innovating and surprising productions. You could also give it a try. There’s no need to have a clear storyline, you can do short abstract productions to image your message and your vision. You can also get really creative with mixing. You do not have to create a song with a chorus and a distinct melody, you can use mixing to create ambient sounds or a soundtrack for your short film. The most important part is that you have fun creating it and that you personally like the final result. This is the beauty of art.
