Breaking Down Elements Behind Sascha Fonseca’s Award-Winning Wildlife Photo “World of the Snow Leopard”
The indigenous peoples of the Indian Himalayas call them “the ghost of the mountain.” The moniker fits; with its thick, whitish-grey fur that blends perfectly with its icy local habitat, the snow leopard seems made for camouflage. This is not, however, enough to protect it from poaching or the ruinous effects of climate change. Not only are snow leopards difficult to find—there are now fewer of them to see. This is why the snow leopard is the subject of the photograph that won Sascha Fonseca the Wildlife Photographer of the Year People’s Choice Award. The London Natural History Museum hosts this photography competition to highlight the connection between photography, science, and art.
The artist ANTOINETTE, together with her technology partner BizzTech, have created a photorealistic museum space of unprecedented image quality in the Metaverse for the ALTAR of EUROPA. The ALTAR of EUROPA is a real existing, 100m2 drawing consisting of millions of individual pencil strokes created by ANTOINETTE during three years of work . The image density of this monumental work of art is an ideal example to demonstrate the power of the browser-based multi-polygon technology used. In the digital world, every detail of the drawing becomes visible and perspectives and sections can be explored that would not be accessible when visiting the physical exhibition. In this virtual space, museum visitors, regardless of their location, meet with their digital twins, their avatars. With their avatars and an integrated translation tool, visitors can communicate about what they see and what moves them, without being restricted by language barriers.
Judith de Leeuw (JDL) – a well-known Dutch street artist who’s art appeared all over the world – has unveiled her imposing new 40-metre mural entitled “Icarus”, created for the Street Art for Rights Forum Festival on the north-east wall of the Corviale building in Rome, the famous “Serpentone”, one of the “most symbolic” walls in the capital.
This new masterpiece – on one of the city’s largest walls – bears a reference to the myth of Icarus. Icarus is the man who, heedless of his own limitations, flew too close to the sun with wax wings and fell into the sea. A metaphor for a profit-blinded society that is heading for self-destruction, aiming to have the most today, heedless of the future.
