  • 360° Arts Galore! (10/7/2017)- One of the goals of Cosma is to highlight the greatest immersive and interactive content available on the web, and while there are a number of interesting formats featured on the posts and pages, the majority of examples tend to be YouTube 360° Videos. In fact, there are so many great videos, it would be … Continue reading 360° Arts Galore!
  • AirPano (10/16/2016)- While reviewing the posts during “the move,” there was one glaring omission that emerged. It turns out that there was never a post about a fantastic Russian crew going by the name “AirPano” that has been traveling the world using drones to capture and publish fantastic 360° panoramic videos, and they have been doing it … Continue reading AirPano
  • Art Revisited (1/15/2017)- Artists have revisited, reinterpreted, and in more recent terminology, “remixed” earlier artist’s work for as long as there has been art. Happily, this trend is alive and well, and new immersive 360°/3D/VR technologies are being used to revisit and add new dimensions, literally, to classic art masterpieces. The latest example to cross my screen is … Continue reading Art Revisited
  • Art Revisited II (2/27/2017)- An earlier post on Cosma entitled Art Revisited covered a trend for new immersive 360°/3D/VR technologies to be used to revisit and add new dimensions, literally, to classic art masterpieces. Some examples covered in that post included the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium explicating Bruegel’s A fall with the Rebel Angels and the … Continue reading Art Revisited II
  • CG, AR & VR, Oh My! (8/1/2017)- ACM’s SIGGRAPH Conference is going on in LA this week (Sun. Jul 30 – Thur. Aug 3), and that means it’s time to find out about all of the awesome new tech that we’ll be hearing about and seeing in the next few months. In case you’ve never heard of it (or better, been :), … Continue reading CG, AR & VR, Oh My!
  • Color Derby (12/30/2018)- This is the time of year when the news is full of stories about things “of the year.” According to your interests, you may have already noted Time’s Person of the Year, AAAS’s Science Stories of the Year or the nominees for Academy Awards. However, there are some yearly “selections” that get less play in … Continue reading Color Derby
  • Dive-in-Art (7/11/2017)- Check out this video from the Lower Keys Underwater Music Festival held last weekend. There are a ton of YouTube videos about the 33 year old fest, and here’s an article about it. Watch An Underwater Music Festival ‘Make Waves’ for Reef Protection (Florida Keys News Bureau) You might think that this event is pretty … Continue reading Dive-in-Art
  • Gulliver’s Gate (9/20/2017)- Remember when you read or watched Jonathan Swift’s Gulliver’s Travels (Wikipedia). Did you ever think it would be cool to see the world from the Lilliputian’s perspective? Well, now you can, and you can even take a trip around the world in 80 minutes to boot 🙂 All you have to do is visit Gulliver’s … Continue reading Gulliver’s Gate
  • L.A. Noir (12/20/2016)- The New York Times has done it, again! Over the last year they have consistently released some of the classiest and most immersive 3D/360°/VR media around. Features like Takes Flight and Seeking Pluto’s Frigid Heart set production and content quality standards exceedingly high, but this time they have truly outdone themselves. The New York Times … Continue reading L.A. Noir
  • Leonardo Lately (10/22/2017)- Have you noticed that for a gentleman who hasn’t been around for five centuries, Leonardo da Vinci sure has been getting a lot of press lately? That’s not to say that it’s not well deserved. Here’s a 3 Minute Primer that gives just a glimpse of why he was such an amazing guy. The Smile … Continue reading Leonardo Lately
  • Magical Paintings (10/19/2018)- Remember those nifty magical paintings in Harry Potter where the people in the paintings move around, interact with people in other paintings as well as people in the real world? (Pottermore, Muggles’ Guide to Harry Potter) Here’s a new 360° video from SoKrispyMedia that takes that concept to a whole nother level. There’s nothing else … Continue reading Magical Paintings
  • Strange Things (11/12/2016)- There’s been a ton of cool stuff going on in the 3D/360°/AR/VR hardware and software universe lately, and there’s about to be even more (more on that soon). On the other hand, the 3D/360°/AR/VR content front has been “relatively” static (unless you love Halloween’esque horror, of course). When I went looking for something interesting to … Continue reading Strange Things
  • Visioning Spacesteads (8/8/2018)- Space, the final frontier… Humans have been imagining what it would be like to setup homesteads and live in space for about as long as they’ve been imagining how to get there, but the process didn’t really take off until after we actually got there. Back in the 1970’s NASA dedicated some resources to the … Continue reading Visioning Spacesteads
  • Walk-in-Art (10/29/2016)- New media artists tend to revisit and reinterpret earlier artist’s work, sometimes intentionally and with attribution, and other times not. Either way, it’s fun to compare (re)implementations. For example, here’s a cool YouTube 360° video experimenting with the idea of allowing the viewer to “walk-in” van Gogh’s Starry Night. Starry Night 360° Video (Press and … Continue reading Walk-in-Art

Encyclopedia

Visual arts are art forms that focus on the creation of works which are primarily visual in nature, such as drawing, painting, photography, printmaking, and filmmaking. Those that involve three-dimensional objects, such as sculpture and architecture, are called plastic arts. Many artistic disciplines (performing arts, language arts, textile arts, and culinary arts) involve aspects of the visual arts as well as other types, so these definitions are not strict.
