Up close and personal: some effects of technology on portraiture
by Blake Hurt
International Journal of Arts and Technology (IJART), Vol. 2, No. 1/2, 2009

Abstract: Computer technology has created new opportunities for the methods used in making portraits. These opportunities include adding elements from the hand of the sitter, as well as detailed physical measurements that are now available from technology, such as fingerprints. Using these new methods, the paper identifies two new perspectives, reflective and objective, in addition to the traditional point of view, subjective, as being the result. Illustrations from the author's own work provide visual examples. A short review of other work in the field is also provided.
