Key to American Innovation? Incorporating Art and Design into Education

Key to American Innovation? Incorporating Art and Design into Education | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it
In the future technology will shatter the physical distance between continents, and create exponentially faster communication between people, companies, organizations, employees, and employers. We will have self-driving cars, and the advancements of 3D printing will make it possible for anyone to design and create physical objects. Our cell phones will be ambient technology—no longer requiring our attention, learning our behavioral patterns in the background, and politely serving up our next favorite lunch spot. Life will be good in the future.

Pop Icon Photography Duo, Markus Klinko and Indrani, Publish 17 Years of Stunning Imagery | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it
We have all done it -- admired an image yet never given much thought of where it came from, or who created it.

So many were images I had obsessed over, gazed upon and even cut out for my inspiration board.

The birth of travel photography: Du Camp and Flaubert's 1849 trip to Egypt, North Africa and the Middle East | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it
One of my favorite photography stories is about one of the world’s first travel shoots. It's a little-known, true-life adventure that puts Indiana Jones to shame. I discovered the tale years ago at a flea market when I bought an old, yellowed paperback titled "Flaubert in Egypt."

Film Studies For Free: Search results for Horror

Film Studies For Free: Search results for Horror | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it
Philosophers getting excited about horror films may seem incongruous to the average intellectual reader, and saying that one has a "philosophy of horror" may simply sound pretentious. Maybe it’s the bad critical reputation of most monster movies, a perennially popular genre (especially with teenagers) that has always taken its lumps, both aesthetically and morally.

Photographer Michael Wolf was awarded Honorable Mention for his curated screenshots at the World Press Photo 2011. Photographer Aaron Hobson takes screenshots and turns them into gorgeous panoramic photos. Jon Rafman’s screenshots were picked for an exhibition at London’s Saatchi Gallery. Now here’s another case that might cause a lot more head-scratching: photographer Doug Rickard‘s Street View screenshots have been selected for the permanent collection at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
