La vera dimensione dell’arte
Art in True Dimension
Gigapixel and art, a fruitful union to reveal the secrets of paintings, sculptures and architecture. Gigapixels, consisting in hundreds of stitched images and obtained thanks to cutting-edge technologies, are ultra high-resolution photographs that allow the exploration and the study of works of art in any dimension. This very immersive and spectacular instrument, which is also extremely rigorous, makes it possible to get amazing enlargements, even further the 1:1 scale.
It is particularly interesting for art historians and restorers who can get an in-depth knowledge of a masterpiece by zooming from the general to the particular, even better than they were on a scaffolding.
Moreover, this technique is very useful as educational tool in events and exhibitions to show artworks which are difficult, if not impossibile, to transport.
These images are the result of Ghigo Roli’s last specialization. The author has a thirty-year experience in the field of Cultural Heritage photography. He has acquired his skills by taking analogue photos of works of art and architecture and using large format view cameras. Therefore Ghigo Roli can face new technologies on the strength of his experience in using and controlling light, perspective and colour.
