Listen to Audio Arts: The 1970s Tape Cassette Arts Magazine Featuring Andy Warhol, Marcel Duchamp & Many Others


As a podcaster, I’ve long since grown used to the idea of periodically issuing audio content. But the convenient recording, internet, and computer, and mobile listening technologies that made such a medium possible only really converged in the early 2000s. How would I have gone about it had I wanted to put out a “podcast,” say, 40 years earlier? We have one such example in Audio Arts, a British contemporary art “sound magazine” distributed through the mail […]

There was little in the way of actual interaction and it wasn’t used to its full potential as an engagement tool.Over the last couple of years we’ve tried to give […]

Collaborative authoring of academic articles using cloud services

If you have been following this blog for some time, you will know that when it comes to Photogrammetric reconstructions I have always been a strong supporter of 123D Catch by Autodesk. I find that it is by far the easiest program to use, yet the results are still amazing.
