A pair of socks made in Egypt in the 4th or 5th century and now in the V&A Museum, London. These socks were found during excavations at Oxyrhynchus, a major monastic site and centre of Christianity in Romano-Egypt by the fifth century. The socks were made using the 'nålbindning' technique, a forerunner of modern knitting. The big toe is separate from the rest of the foot, perhaps so that these socks could be worn with sandals.⁠⠀ •⁠⠀ •⁠⠀ •⁠⠀ #vanda #vandamuseum #victoriaandalbertmuseum #museum #museums #london #londonmuseums #londondart #art #medievalart #medievalfashion #medievalstyle #medievalworld #medievalegypt #earlymedieval #middleages #knitting #textiles #socks #textileart #fashion #fashionhistory #historyofdress #socksandsandals #statementpiece #feet #footwraps #style #moyenage #mittelalter

Under a bright blue sky ... El Museo Británico es uno de los museos más importantes del mundo. La sección del Antiguo Egipto es la más importante del mundo después de la del Museo Egipcio en El Cairo. The Great Court (la Gran Corte) es el cuadrángulo central cubierto de cristal y acero, compuesto por 1656 pares de cristales, convirtiéndola en la mayor plaza cubierta de Europa. 📍Londres, Inglaterra 🇬🇧 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #london #UnitedKingdom #BritishMuseum #GreatCourt #UK #globetrotter #londres #england #traveller #travel #travelpic #lovetotravel #worldplaces #wanderlust #travelphotography #destinations #traveladdict #worldtravelpics #globetrotterstravels #londonlovers #britishsnaps #citiesoftheworld #topeuropephoto #eurotrip #britishnationalmuseum #britishmuseumlondon #britishhistorymuseum #londondart #art #likeforlikes

In \"What Hath GOD Wrought\", I chose to incorporat

Imagine the future. In "What Hath GOD Wrought", I chose to incorporate my very first oil painting of Russian Orthodox religious figures with the original quote from Samuel Morse, an accomplished painter, and the first to telegraph the message, "What hath God wrought" in 1844, thereby beginning the new communication technology. The invention of QR and bar code data management technology nearly 70 years ago plays a vital role in our economy, productivity and efficiency. -------------- "Conceived in 1909, Futurism was a seminal philosophical and artistic movement embracing change and technology at the beginning of the last century. While incorporating the social dynamics and cultural upheaval in the world around them, the painters, sculptors, writers, musicians and architects attempted to infuse the philosophy of Futurism into every aspect of art and life in a gesture of cultural defiance. Futurism was inspired by new technology, speed, and the changing architecture in cities. The underlying philosophy of Futurism continues its residual influence into this century at the break-neck speed of modern life. Today, we readily embrace revolutionary new technologies, and incorporate new media art that seamlessly blends art and the machine. Like futurists of the last century, artists today embrace change, and willingly blur the hard edge between traditional art and technology. I was educated using traditional artistic mediums and techniques, but my teachers encouraged experimentation. In the mid 1980’s I began combining art and technology. Since 2011, I have been working exclusively as a digital artist. A monitor is my canvas. I paint with colored light, and replace my brush with a stylus. Each painting is composed of electronic data that can be exhibited electronically or mechanically applied to virtually any substrate using archival pigment. The results are interesting, and often surprising."
