Journal For Virtual Worlds Research - Vol 6, No 2 (2013): Arts

Journal For Virtual Worlds Research - Vol 6, No 2 (2013): Arts | Didactics and Technology in Education | Scoop.it
Journal of Virtual Worlds Research

Issue editors: Celeste Lovette Guichard, Savannah College of Art and Design; Laura Salciuviene, Lancaster University Management School, UK; Gary Hardee, University of Texas at Dallas, TX, USA.

An important single thread runs through this issue: the exploration of artistic “process”. The importance of process in various instantiations to all of these articles renders this issue more specifically about “ars” in the Latin sense -- ars being a skill or a craft that usually, but certainly not always, results in an artistic object.

It is the “way” of art in virtual worlds that we invite you to read about in the following pages.

Strange Things in Google Maps

Strange Things in Google Maps | Didactics and Technology in Education | Scoop.it

This site "Map of Strange" is dedicated to showing strange things that can be seen in Google Maps. Displayed here is a beach that I loved to go to growing up in San Diego.  Coronado is written in large stones on this part of the beach right next to the red roof of the famous Hotel Del Corondo.

Google Earth Fractals

Google Earth Fractals | Didactics and Technology in Education | Scoop.it

Who says you can't integrate geography and real world applications into the math curriculum?  Paul Bouke has scoured the Earth searching for fractals in the natural environment and created this amazingly artistic remote sensing gallery (with KMZ files for viewing in Google Earth as well).

Seth - I am hardly worthy of YOUR currating! Hope to meet you in person at NCGE and get a picture of us for Facebook. :-)

This is so beautiful. Fractals are an amazing phenomenon, whether you are an artist, geographer, or mathematician. I love being able to see fractals in plants or feel them as air travels through
