GFSW04 - Form in art, toys and games

I will discuss work by VII century artist Diego Velásquez relating to structure and its interaction with surrounding, and in particular the source of inspiration it has provided for much of my own work. Velásquez' work intuitively conveyed our perception of form as arising from its constituent atoms, which has taken science a few more centuries to acknowledge. In my talk I will touch on technical aspects of his and other artists' paintings, which are inspired in their treatment especially of the edges of matter in its various forms, which are problematic to convey. I will also discuss some of my own related work, which deals with threshold, entropy and interpretation of disrupted continuity of visual information.
