Digital Magic Art in short form DimArt, combines digital photography and experimental art, which involves elements of:
During the creation of a DimArt-work these 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.
In experimental photography, experiments with time, light, colors, filters, several materials as well as a computer aided photo set up supports the artist creating unique photographs. Especially in liquid drop art photography timing is the most important factor. The correct timing allows to freeze unseen moments into figures or abstract creations. The formation of these abstract figures and creations is mainly influenced by the drop height, drop diameter and viscosity of the fluid.
The Links below show the artwork of our artists. For printed artwork Saal Digital is our first choice for best prints with high end quality. Prints are available on several materials and many different sizes. For interest in art prints please feel free to contact us directly or check out our DimArt Art Gallery on Saal Digital:
During the interaction with the computer the artwork is created according to the evolutionary principle, which means that the computer provides many imaginative pictures,
from which one is selected depending on the flavor, the ability to associate, or fantasy of the artist. There exists different procedures to generate the diversity of pictures,
such as, glitching, data moshing, fractals, etc. and the newly discovered DimArt effect.
The procedure based on the evolutionary principle can be applied repeatedly until an interesting aspect in the picture is discovered by the artist. In further steps the aspects, such as figures, animals, scenery, etc. can be worked out more clearly by using image processing tools. The quality of the obtained pictures particularly depends on the skill of handling processing tools commonly used in digital art.
The so called DimArt Effect is determined by way of capturing photo and video data, imaginative DJ interactions, and the way of how to transform the computer into “quasi-chaotic” states. Such steps leading mostly to unexpected results of beautiful pictures with a high diversity of shapes, styles, fantastic colors and of high translucency and brightness. In this chaotic state the computer is a helpful, creative and visionary partner regarding the creation and formation of digital artwork. However, the way how this chaotic state is created is still being kept as a secret, like a wizard keeps his tricks for himself.
The final step of the procedure 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:
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.
The electronic painting painter was created for artists and hobbyists. It allows painting techniques analogue to classical painting methods. When using the electronic painting paper, pencil and brushing tools, as well as, filters of graphic image programing replacing the conventional brush. When applying the painting filter tools to the electronic painting paper any art style can be realized in a great variety of forms and colors. Using the EPP, there is no color pot necessary since all necessary colors are available within the EPP. In addition, referring to the classical painting methods working with EPP and computer-aid method it is possible to do: undo.
The specific characteristics of the electronic painting paper are based on the structure of the elementary blocks, which are composed of single image pixels (the smallest technical solvable pixel). The color and intensity of the pixel and block elements are adjustable during generating the electronic painting paper. There are different types of EPP available: mono color, two color, tree color, ... up to multi color based EPPs. Furthermore, strong colors and high saturation have good effects when using the EPP.
Parameterizable panting and filter tools in combination with the electronic painting paper also allow a great variety of designs and modes of expressions for the artist. The creativity is supported by the computer, hence with computer-aided painting allows the hobbyist to apply professional techniques and in addition there is a direct feedback between the artist and the PC. This allows to create the pictures evolutionary by the try and error principle. Step by step it is possible to evaluate the result without having a deep knowledge of professional painting techniques, it is more playing with the tools available by image application software. It also may by helpful when EPP is combined with digital photo art. By selecting and filtering the artwork during the evaluation process, often surprisingly and unpredictable results may occur.
The following pictures below show some examples of different electronic painting papers. The picture at the top shows the raw image,
which is the image that serves the basis to create the electronic painting paper. With some “magic the EPP is created, shown below the raw image.
Then several intermediate steps follow to the final artwork, shown by the bottom image.
