The Amazing Canvas Primer

(a few more musings)

If you think for a moment about all the potential comprised in this Amazing Canvas idea, you can easily envision that in some not-too-distant future all fine art galleries will start changing their traditional, "analogue" exhibits, all those so expensive (and often futile) to preserve and protect framed originals, to electronic, Internet-enabled stands with glowing flat screens of various sizes each displaying a great work of art on its living, rich of illuminated detail canvas. A work that you can interact with and that reacts to your presence perhaps. Come another month, there's a different set of famously beautiful pictures breathing with life in the same exhibition space...

What's more, each Amazing Canvas version of the original painting can be - and should be - considered as a work of art of its own, possibly just one among a number of other existing animated impressions for the same painting. And, unlike its centuries-old original, it can change and evolve with time, accommodating more of wonderful effects added by the masterpiece's co-creator - the video animation artist. Consider thus this (about to be released) product as just a v1.0 of the work. (...and stay tuned!)

I would also like to see The Amazing Canvas as a special response to the call of our peculiar times, when we can - finally - afford those stunningly-looking, large flat tv screens in our homes and begin to realise that we probably want (and deserve) to see something better on them than those hollow Hollywood movie remakes and mindless tv programmes. And hopefully, our video-hungry children and cgi-spoiled grandchildren will learn to appreciate the fine art as well through The Amazing Canvas, - it might be not too late for them yet...
