ART AND CAMOUFLAGE' Leonardo/isast!spec.projects/ camouflagebib.html Compiled fry RoyR. Behrens While the wartime use of camouflage is by no means a modern invention, its importance became magnified during World War I due to the use of the airplane and photography for aerial observation . The first sectionde camouflage in military history was established in 1915 by the French under the command of an artist, and thereafter comparable units were created and used by the British and Americans and, to lesser extent, by the Germans, Italians and Russians. These units were largely made up of camouJleurswho in civilian life had been artists of one kind or another . As a result, literally hundreds of artists-includingJacques Villon, Franz Marc, Arshile Gorky, Thomas Hart Benton, Grant Wood, Laszlo Moholy-Nagy and Oskar Schlemmerwere used during both World Wars by participants on all sides of the cone 19981SAST flicts as military or civil defense camouflage experts. The Art and Camouflage bibliography is a selected list of books, exhibition catalogs and articles that provide information on the contributions of artists to modern studies of camouflage, both biological and military. COpy ART Leonardo/isast/spec.projects/ electrobib.html Compiled fry ReedAltemus This bibliography represents about 4 years ofresearch on the topic of Copy Art-art made with photocopiers-and includes listings of self-published writings , theses and dissertations, journal and magazine articles, books and exhibition catalogs. This art medium has had a number of different names over the years. "Copy Art" is a term that was in favor in the 1970s but that fell out offavor in the 1980s, when "Electrographic Art" was the preferred term. Since that time, it has been pointed out that both copier art and computer art could accurately be called "electrographic," so the term "Electrographic Art" cannot be used to refer exclusively to copier art. FrenchCanadian critic Monique BrunetWeinmann devised a new term "copigraphy," which, unfortunately, sounds awkward in English. Another option, "xerography," refers too much to the technical process of one kind of copier while not referring enough to the art (in other words, someone making a reprograph [not art] with a xerographic machine is, technically speaking, doing "xerography"). The term "Copy Art" solves the confusion about which technology is being discussed and is widely used in Europe and Canada (sometimes with a hyphen: "copy-art") . RUDOLF ARNHEIM: SELECTED WRITINGS Leonardo/ isast/spec.projects/ arnheimbib.html RUDOLF ARNHEIM: LEONARDO WRITINGS Leonardo/ isast/spec.projects/ arnheimleobib.html Compiled fry PatrickLambelet Two bibliographies give an overview of the life and work of groundbreaking art critic and film criticism pioneer (and Leonardo Editorial Board member ) RudolfArnheim.
