Ultratech diamonds and rubies

The artwork titled “ultratech diamonds and rubies” is part of a collection, published by LOVE4design and was effectively called “object oriented design”. Obviously the term “object oriented” was borrowed from the department of system development, and  as such  it was widely debated in the early eighties. Since we like to separate design and development, we have reserved the term “object orientation” for artwork that is composed of individual artistic components..

This artwork that was originally created with Adobe Photoshop CC was constructed of s of a few dozen individual layered objects.  It shows an ultra tech decor, that seems to be more or less folded around an iMac.  The iMac’s screen seems to be translucent. The scene that is somewhat cold, is warmed up by several rubies and diamonds. These jewels were brought into the scene as very high resolution images and further transformed into their current state..

What about copyright?

What about copyright? Arent there any legal issues here? We like to think there are not. You see, that’s the power of object oriented design. The art is in the composition, not is the individual objects. All these objects can be turned on and off at will and are easily  exchangeable. In case someone objects to the use of one of these objects, we will humbly apologize and replace it with a slightly different one.  For instance, who owns the hand that is touching the keyboard? We have a ton of this stuff…
