Aesthetics in Sherry Dellaria-McGrath’s Art and Poe’s The Raven

So Poe by Sherry Dellaria-McGrath

Sherry Dellaria-McGrath’s So Poe is significant for the artist’s ability to express literary aesthetics through visual art. So Poe depicts the raven in one of Edgar Allan Poe’s greatest poems, The Raven. The poem is frequently examined by literary critics for its expression of mystery, the grotesque, and the supernatural.  Dellaria-McGrath’s So Poe captures the essences of these literary components through design, texture and color.

Dellaria-McGrath’s design masterfully incorporates aspects of the original poem in extraordinary detail. So Poe features the raven perched upon a tree branch beneath the moonlight. The raven is the most dominant visual aesthetic throughout the art piece. Its shape and posture reflects that of the raven in the original poem, as it were perched upon a bust above the narrator’s chamber door. So Poe’s design highlights this extraordinary image under the bright lights of the shining moon, giving observers the opportunity to experience the image from a new perspective.  

The tree branch in So Poe represents vividly the literary concept of the…

Buy Art with Bitcoin on Cointemporary

Buy Art with Bitcoin on Cointemporary

 

Painters Valentin Ruhry and Andy Boot launched Cointemporary in May, an online marketplace for purchasing creations using Bitcoin. The company features a new piece of art each week, and once it’s sold the artist has the option of receiving pay through traditional currency or Bitcoin. However, since the company wants to push the trend of digital currency, it gives the artists a larger percentage of the sale if they select Bitcoin as their payment option.

 

Purchased art gets shipped to buyers through Viennese company Kunsttrans-which also accepts Bitcoin.

 

The digital currency is starting to appear in a variety of styles in art. For example, the popular works of San Francisco-based artist Tom Loughlin and New York’s Jenna Lash often include Bitcoin as a creative theme. French artist Youl recently sold a painting entitled “The Last Bitcoin Supper” on eBay for $2,900.

 

Companies Art4Bit, BitPremier, and Silicon Valley Contemporary also use Bitcoin as a payment method. Paddle8 is considering using it as an option as well.

 

Cointemporary’s goal is to provide a “broader global visual context free from the hegemonic monetary system in which contemporary art is embedded.” The platform offers a “new form of autonomy in the global monetary system.”…

Google Glass is Coming to Doctor’s Offices

 

The Google Glass technology will be a convinient way for consumers to use applications and connect to the internet. Google is also looking for ways to make the device safer for drivers. There is also a new wave of companies planning to use the technology to make health care more efficient.

 

Augmedix is one of several start-up companies identifying ways to use Google Glass in health care. According to a statement Wednesday the company already raised $3.2 million in venture capital funding.

 

The announcement came on a significant day for Augmedix, as the start-up’s 36 employees began moving out of the Mission Bay incubator Rock Health into a 7,000-square-foot office in San Francisco’s Mid-Market neighborhood.

 

The Augmedix founders formed the company as Stanford University students in 2012. They plan to use funds from DCM and Emergence Capital Partners to hire more staff and expand services. The company’s program is determining ways to allow Google Glass-wearing doctors to cut down on paperwork in order to spend more time with patients.

 

Developing notes on a patient’s condition, either by hand or elecontrinicaly has always been an integral yet time-consuming aspect of a doctor’s job. A recent study found that physicians who use electronic health records in the exam room spend approximately…

Didn't Like Guardians' Post-Credit Howard The Duck Scene? Blame Captain America 2


James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy was a fantastic movie (one of the best of the year, in fact). The diehard fans who stayed through to the very end for that final post-credits scene were undoubtedly hoping for some Avengers 2 stinger, and they didn't get it. What they saw instead was a CGI version of Howard the Duck sipping a cocktail next to Benicio Del Toro's The Collector. You could practically hear the WTFs resounding throughout the theater, and now there's a target for your blame. We know it's difficult to find any fault with Captain America: The Winter Soldier, ...
