About Digital Magic Art - DimArt!

Digital Magic Art in short form DimArt, is a new kind of experimental art, which involves elements of:

  • traditional digital photography,
  • a new “magical” image processing method,
  • and the common image post-processing technique.
During the creation of a DimArt-work these three activities are more or less taken into account. The quality of the artwork is mainly determined by inspirations, emotional abilities and experimental skills of the artist. Furthermore, it strongly depends on how the artist is treating with esthetic of colors and form, brightness and luminance, and dynamics of motion. Last but not least, the content of events and scenery, captured by digital photography and video recording is an important factor for the result of the artwork.

The stunning properties of our artwork is dominantly given by a new method of photo and video data manipulation in which the artist interacts like a music DJ with different input devices of the computer, such as mouse, keyboard, touch pad, etc. Hereby, the computer is transformed into a “quasi-chaotic” state, leading mostly to unexpected results of beautiful pictures with a high diversity of shapes, styles, fantastic colors and of high translucency and brightness.

The final step of the method is the improvement of pictures by common image post-processing applied to selected artwork obtained from the DJ interaction. These post-processing steps include mainly the application of filter techniques provided by software packages available as open source of commercial programs. In summery, the DimArt method is a mixed media technique because of photo and video data manipulation is performed by our new method as well as by common image post-processing steps.

In 2013 the physicist Prof. Dr. Juergen Kempf discovered the new DimArt method, since then with a great enthusiasm he is improving the technique for creating pictures, paintings, canvas, etc., in a "magical way" of digital art. His aim is to establish a method for producing pictures and videos at a high level of digital art. In March 2014 the DimArt project was officially started by the team members Jürgen Kempf (DJKpf) and Gerald Schickhuber (DJGerry). The main aims of the project intentions are to develop:
  • a better understanding of the DimArt procedure
  • an easy to use DimArt-Tool for hobby artists
  • a high level standard of digital art
The DimArt-Tool is not only for the creation of computer aided artwork, but also for computer aided therapy of neurological diseases and of fine-motor dysfunctions due to Parkinson, schizophrenia, apoplexia, Multiple Sclerosis, etc. Moreover, it can be used for training of young and elderly people in creativity and imagination.

DJKpf

As a physicist and artist, DJKPF is engaged in computer art since 2013. All artworks are created by himself using the unique Digital Magic Art method (DimArt) applied to photo and video data. The intention is to express emotions in relation to diverse essential items of life and nature, by using DimArt pictures.

Gerry

As an photographer and artist, Gerry is engaged in computer art since 2013. All artworks are created by himself using the unique Digital Magic Art method (DimArt) applied to photo and video data. The intention is to experiment with digital art tools and display techniques to create colorful artwork.

Sirqi

As an experimental photographer, SIRQI works in the area of liquid art since 2016. All artworks are created by himself using a computer based drop control system. When drops falling into water, then within a split second shapes and figures are created, which normally are not recognized by the human eye. The intention is to experiment with drop size, liquids and other material to create an unique moment captured by the camera.
