The front cover shows a simulation of the collisions of the lead-ion beams at CERN, as recorded by the detector ALICE. The collisions produce a plasma of quarks and gluons in a sizable volume, with a density greater than that in a neutron star and with a temperature 100 000 times that in the Sun’s core. These conditions match those a few microseconds after the big bang beginning of the universe. In our normal low-energy world, quarks and gluons are always locked up inside the confines of particles such as protons and neutrons. However, in the high-energy collisions within ALICE, they undergo deconfinement to produce the plasma, which is a unique state of matter that acts like an ideal fluid with no viscosity. Such was the state of the universe just after the big bang. –This text refers to the Loose Leaf edition.

The Art of Seeing Zelanski Fisher 8th Edition

The Art of Seeing Zelanski Fisher 8th Edition

The Art of Seeing Zelanski Fisher 8th EditionThe Art of Seeing explores traditional and contemporary art and artistic media focusing on art as seen from the artist’s point of view.  The book introduces students to artistic techniques and introductory aesthetic principles. It provides clear, concise presentation, superb illustrations, and strong emphasis on the elements and media.
New Features of this Edition

One major new feature is a series of 10 boxes, “The World Seen.” Each examines an art form that has been highly developed in a particular time and place, such as the brush and ink paintings of Sung China, the precious metalwork of Tsarist Russia, the ivory work of the kingdom of Benin, and the gold-embroidered saris still produced in contemporary India. The social and cultural factors that led to these heights are examined along with the exceptional skillfulness of the arts.

Another new feature is the addition of discursive material to many of the captions. This new material augments the text discussions by giving related information about the content and context of the work. Many captions now include interesting quotations from the artists about what they were attempting to do, such as Op Artist Bridget Riley’s explanation, “For me nature is not landscapes, but the dynamism of visual forces—an event rather than an appearance,” thus deepening understanding of the work at hand.

Yet another new feature is 15 illustrated chapter opening vignettes. Each displays a work that is in some way emblematic of the entire topic to be discussed. These give a taste of what is to follow and an introduction to looking at that aspect of art.
