  • The Impact of Technology in Art

    Alex Woolf

    Product Code: ARJDX
    Hardback
    How have technology and science helped artists through the years? How do today's artists use technology in their work? What role does technology hold for the future of art? From the invention of the camera obscura through to today's digital painting and internet art, artists have always used contemporary technology to aid in the creation and display of their work. This book looks at how the creation of paintings, sculpture and engraving have changed over time and how newer mediums from photography to film and even computer games, have changed our perception of how technology can help us express ourselves.

  • Engineering: A Very Short Introduction

    David Blockley

    Product Code: ADWKZ
    Paperback 14 years +
    Engineering is part of almost everything we do - from the water we drink and the food we eat, to the buildings we live in and the roads and railways we travel on. In this Very Short Introduction, David Blockley explores the nature and practice of engineering, its history, its scope, and its relationship with art, craft, science, and technology. He considers the role of engineering in the modern world, demonstrating its need to provide both practical and socially acceptable solutions, and explores how engineers use natural phenomena to embrace human needs. From its early roots starting with Archimedes to some of the great figures of engineering such as Brunel and Marconi, right up to the modern day, he also looks at some of its challenges - when things go wrong - such as at Chernobyl. Ultimately, he shows how engineering is intimately part of who and what we are.
