art with code



Hanging out in Berlin this week, with a shiny new sketchbook to boot.

Went to the Pergamonmuseum on Sunday to be all Ozymandias. The things they have there are huge (indoor display of 15m high pillars, etc.) and pretty old (2-3 thousand years) and beautiful. And messed up in that ancient style of messed-upness. The objects in the Islamic museum side were nicee, superior metalcraft and calligraphy (also a millennium or two younger than the rest of the stuff but who's counting). The Assyrian reliefs had writing going across them, like a textured strip of cuneiform. They had a special display on the coloring of the Greek statues, with brightly colored reproductions of much RGB might.
