The fourth dimension and non-Euclidean geometry in modern art by Linda Dalrymple Henderson( Book )

20 editions published between 1983 and 2013 in English and held by 1,214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this groundbreaking study, first published in 1983 and unavailable for over a decade, Linda Dalrymple Henderson demonstrates that two concepts of space beyond immediate perception - the curved spaces of non-Euclidean geometry and, most important, a higher, fourth dimension of space - were central to the development of modern art. The possibility of a spatial fourth dimension suggested that our world might be merely a shadow or section of a higher dimensional existence. That iconoclastic idea encouraged radical innovation by a variety of early twentieth-century artists, ranging from French Cubists, Italian Futurists, and Marcel Duchamp, to Max Weber, Kazimir Malevich, and the artists of De Stijl and Surrealism. In an extensive new Reintroduction, Henderson surveys the impact of interest in higher dimensions of space in art and culture from the 1950s to 2000. Although largely eclipsed by relativity theory beginning in the 1920s, the spatial fourth dimension experienced a resurgence during the later 1950s and 1960s. In a remarkable turn of events, it has returned as an important theme in contemporary culture in the wake of the emergence in the 1980s of both string theory in physics (with its ten- or eleven-dimensional universes) and computer graphics. Henderson demonstrates the importance of this new conception of space for figures ranging from Buckminster Fuller, Robert Smithson, and the Park Place Gallery group in the 1960s to Tony Robbin and digital architect Marcos Novak. -- Publishers website
Duchamp in context : science and technology in the Large glass and related works by Linda Dalrymple Henderson( Book )

17 editions published between 1998 and 2005 in English and held by 695 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book, Linda Henderson provides the first systematic study of the Large Glass in relation to the entire corpus of Duchamp's notes for the project. Since Duchamp declared his interest in creating a "Playful Physics," she focuses on the scientific and technological themes that pervade the notes and the imagery of the Large Glass. In order to recover that content, Henderson provides an unprecedented history of science as popularly known at the turn of the century, centered on the late Victorian physics that dominated scientific practice and the public imagination
Fourfield : computers, art & the 4th dimension by Tony Robbin( Book )

6 editions published in 1992 in English and French and held by 369 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although a fascination with the fourth dimension and the search for ways of depicting it have engaged artists for more than a century, only the computer makes such depiction truly possible. Using the computer as a tool, painter and sculptor Tony Robbin has devoted his life as an artist to this quest. Fourfield is both a record of that quest and an eloquent testament to the value of its fulfillment. The understanding and appreciation of space as presented in works of art have changed over the centuries, and Robbin suggests that the time is ripe for our perception of space to undergo another radical shift. He makes clear that "seeing" space in three dimensions is merely a culturally based assumption, no more and no less valid than apprehending space in any other way. This realization frees us to understand space much as a computer might--as fluid, ever changing, and dynamic. It has also freed Robbin to create exhilarating and amazing works, derived from his original blending of art, science, and mathematics. Fourfield is a firsthand account of the artist's visual, intellectual, and philosophical evolution, which has taken him from paintings in a traditional two-dimensional format to those in which rods extending from the canvas and the shadows they produce present a visual experience of four dimensions. Most recently, Robbin has created sculpture that incorporates quasicrystals ("crystals" made up of nonrepeating patterns) and whose appearance varies with the viewer's position and the orientation of light. This experimentation is suggesting startling new directions in architecture as well. To assist the reader in comprehending this seemingly magical world, Fourfield comes with an image of a pattern of four-dimensional cubes, known as hypercubes, and special glasses through which to view it. Also included is an order form for a diskette containing a number of the computer programs developed by Robbin as he explored the world of computers and art. Written with a voice of eloquence and clarity for anyone interested in art, science, mathematics, computers, or philosophy, Fourfield is, however, not for the timid. Just as Douglas Hofstadter's Godel, Escher, Bach and Robert Pirsig's Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance altered their readers' perceptions, readers of Fourfield will find their way of seeing the world changed forever
From energy to information : representation in science and technology, art, and literature( Book )

10 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 302 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book offers an innovative examination of the interactions of science and technology, art, and literature in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Scholars in the history of art, literature, architecture, computer science, and media studies focus on five historical themes in the transition from energy to information: thermodynamics, electromagnetism, inscription, information theory, and virtuality. Different disciplines are grouped around specific moments in the history of science and technology in order to sample the modes of representation invented or adapted by each field in response to newly developed scientific concepts and models. By placing literary fictions and the plastic arts in relation to the transition from the era of energy to the information age, this collection of essays discovers unexpected resonances among concepts and materials not previously brought into juxtaposition. In particular, it demonstrates the crucial centrality of the theme of energy in modernist discourse. Overall, the volume develops the scientific and technological side of the shift from modernism to postmodernism in terms of the conceptual crossover from energy to information." http://www.loc.gov/catdir/enhancements/fy0710/2002070594-d.html
