ARIES: ARt Image Exploration Space

ARIES: ARt Image Exploration Space

The Frick Art Reference Library and New York Unitersity’s Tandon School of Engineering recently debuted a free web-based platform that allows art historians, curators, and researchers to easily explore and organize digital art collections.

“ARIES provides a novel, intuitive interface to explore, annotate, rearrange, and group art images freely in a single workspace environment, using organizational ontologies (collections, etc.) drawn from existing best practices in art history. The system allows for multiple ways to compare images, from using dynamic overlays analogous to a physical light box to advanced image analysis and feature–matching functions available only through computational image processing. Additionally, users may import and export data to and from ARIES.”

‘A New Model for Public Art’: With ‘Coordinates’ Feature, 4th Wall App Allows Users to View Artist-Designed AR Projects

When the Los Angeles–based artist Nancy Baker Cahill created the augmented reality app 4th Wall in February, she wanted to share her art with a wider audience and give her works’ viewers more agency. In its initial iteration, the app enabled people around the world to see Baker Cahill’s works on paper and virtual reality drawings, which often focus on the human body as a site of struggle, as augmented reality—that is, transposed onto her viewers’ environment via their Androids, iPhones, and iPads.
