Objektorienteret analyse og design (OOA&D) er i 1øbet af 1990-erne blevet den dominerende metode til beskrivelse af edb-baserede systemer. Med denne bog har vi søgt at give en bredt anvendelig fremstilling af OOA&D på dansk. Vores metode er på en gang original og gennemprøvet. Metoden præsenterer et nyt samlet syn på analyse og design, som gør det let for læserenat forstå disse vigtige aktiviteter som en helhed. Mange enkeltdele i metoden stammer dog fra andre metoder. Vi har omhyggeligt udvalgt de dele, som har vist sig at fungere bedst i praksis.Vi har tilstræbt at give en samlet fremstilling af centrale principper. Analyse og design håndteres ellers ofte fragmenteret. Udformningen af edb-systemets logiske kerne er traditionelt styret af funktionelle overvejelser og præget af litteraturen om programmering og modellering. Udformningen af bruger-grænsefladen og interaktionen med omgivelserne er styret af brugsmæssige overvejelser og primært behandlet i litteraturen om menneske-maskin interaktion og brugervenlighed. Designet af systemets arkitektur er ofte kun styret af tekniske overvejelser. I denne bog ser vi på alle væsentlige sider af analyse og design. Bogens fire centrale dele gennemgår systematisk edb-systemets problemområde, dets anvendelsesområde, dets arkitektur og dets komponenter.Vi har også tilstræbt at give en metodologisk fremstilling. Hovedvægten er lagt på principper, begreber og tænkemåder. Ofte er analyse- og design bøger bundet til en bestemt notation med tilhørende diagrammeringsteknikker og CASE-værktøjer. Det lægger op til ufrugtbare religions-krige, og det skaber afhængighed af specialiserede kommercielle produkter. I denne bog har vi som notation valgt Unified Modeling Language, UML, der er på vej til at blive standard på området. Dermed vil læseren få adgang til et stort udvalg af udviklingsværktøjer.Endelig har vi tilstræbt ikke at skrive en bog om objektorienteret programmering. Anvendelsen af OOA&D skaber klarhed over kravene til et edb-system og et kvalificeret grundlag for dets implementering. Men metoden forudsætter, at det fortsatte arbejde udføres af kompetente programmører, der kan udnytte faciliteterne i moderne programmeringsomgivelser til at opnå stor produk-tivitet og høj kvalitet. Vi anbefaler, at analysedokumentet skal indeholde en kortfattet, men komplet beskrivelse af kravene til systemet, og at designdokumentet skal være kortfattet, give overblik over systemets dele og deres samspil, og svare på de centrale designspørgsmål.OOA&D kan anvendes til praktisk systemudvikling og til undervisning. Bogens ene målgruppe er systemudviklere, der ønsker støtte til indførelse af objektorienteret teknologi eller inspiration til personlig faglig udvikling. Den anden målgruppe er studerende på datamatiker-, datalogi- og dataingeniøruddannelserne, samt studerende på andre uddannelser, der kræver praktisk og teoretisk færdighed i systemudvikling.

Title: The Story of Disney: 100 Years of Wonder,Author: John Baxter,Publication Year: 2023-03-07,Publisher: Penguin LCC US,Language: eng
Despite its large and growing popularity — to say nothing of its near-ubiquity in the world’s art scenes and international exhibitions of contemporary art — installation art remains a form whose artistic vocabulary and conceptual basis have rarely been subjected to thorough critical examination.In Installation Art: Between Image and Stage, Anne Ring Petersen aims to change that. She begins by exploring how installation art developed into an interdisciplinary genre in the 1960s, and how its intertwining of the visual and the performative has acted as a catalyst for the generation of new artistic phenomena. She investigates how it became one of today's most widely used art forms, increasingly expanding into consumer, popular and urban cultures, where installation's often spectacular appearance ensures that it meets contemporary demands for sense-provoking and immersive cultural experiences.The main trajectory of the book is directed by a movement aimed at addressing a series of basic questions that get at the heart of what installation art is and how it is defined: How does installation structure time, space and representation? How does it address and engage its viewers? And how does it draw in the surrounding world to become part of the work? Featuring the work of such well-known artists as Bruce Nauman, Pipilotti Rist, Ilya Kabakov and many others, this book breaks crucial new ground in understanding the conceptual underpinnings of this multifacious art form.Anne Ring Petersen is associate professor in the Department of Arts and Cultural Studies at the University of Copenhagen and the editor of Contemporary Painting in Context.

"Recalling a charcoal she made in 1916, Georgia O'Keeffe later wrote, 'I have made this drawing several times--never remembering that I had made it before--and not knowing where the idea came from.' These drawings, and the majority of O'Keeffe's works in charcoal, watercolor, pastel and graphite, belong to series in which she develops and transforms motifs that lie between observation and abstraction. In the formative years of 1915 to 1918, she made as many works on paper as she would in the next 40 years, producing sequences in watercolor of abstract lines, organic landscapes and nudes, along with charcoal drawings she would group according to the designation 'specials.' While her practice turned increasingly toward canvas in subsequent decades, important series on paper reappeared--including charcoal flowers of the 1930s, portraits of the 1940s, and aerial views of the 1950s"--Harvard Bookstore website (viewed on April 12, 2023)

Vævning er det nye store hit blandt kreative personer i Danmark. I 'Båndvævning- Kom godt i gang' får læseren en udførlig, men enkel introduktion til, hvordan man let kan komme i gang med at væve. Teknikkerne i bogen bliver suppleret med flotte billeder og letforståelige illustrationer. Når man tænker på vævning, forestiller man sig ofte store tungevævemaskiner, der fylder en halv stue. Men sådan behøver det ikke at være. I Kerstin Neumüllers nye bog om båndvævning åbner en ny væveverden sig. Hun viser, hvordan man væver med redskaber, der er nemme at lave selv, og som ofte ikke er større, end de passer i en bukselomme. Her er inspiration både til dem, der aldrig har vævet, men er ivrige efter at prøve, og til erfarne vævere, der gerne vil arbejde med fleksible værktøjer til at lave bånd, vægpynt, grydelapper og andre praktiske og fine ting.Kerstin fortæller også om sin rejse fra tekstil til træhåndværk og viser, hvordan man laver sit eget væveværktøj i lommestørrelse af træ eller sågar af en mælkekarton. Først vandt broderiet frem i Danmark. Nu vokser også interessen for vævning blandt danskerne. Kerstin Neumüllers bog er derfor en kærkommenintroduktion til en vævemetode, hvor man ikke behøver den store investering i en væv.

Dennis Scholl uses repetition. Though he does not always paint the same picture, he repeatedly returns to the same point. The terrain he passes through could be a dream landscape from a night twenty years ago. 'Landscape' is suggestive of nature, but the reality portrayed here seems fake. It is more of a park, in which nature has been replicated. And Scholl is not alone here. There are others whom he encounters over and over. But they are no ordinary passers-by; their faces seem like masks - indeed, some of them do wear masks. Are these creatures without expression? My impression is that there are certain arrangements in place within this loose community. Few things are self-evident here. For the most part, there seems to be more of a skirting around the edges of what is directly obvious. The fingers I would use to point at it would need to have more digits than I have on my hand. (Hans-Christian Dany)

Maleren og billedhuggeren Kasper Heiberg (1928-1984) udgav i 1975 bogen Den europæiske palet, som i mange år ikke har været til at opdrive. Har man læst den, forstår man efterspørgslen. Den europæiske palet er nemlig ikke nogen almindelig bog om farver eller klassisk farvelære; ikke en videnskabelig redegørelse for farvernes forskellige pigmenter og kemiske sammensætninger eller for lysets spaltning; den er heller ikke en rendyrket systematisk, psykologisk, etymologisk eller kunsthistorisk gennemgang af farvebrug gennem tiden. Den er derimod lidt af det hele – skrevet med en kærlighed til farvens sprog og verden, en fascination, som er baseret på undersøgelser af både historiske kilder og Heibergs egen samtids omgivelser. Med bogen i hånden forstår man desuden bedre, hvad Kasper Heiberg forsøgte at gøre i de omfattende udsmykningsopgaver, som han enten gav forslag til eller gennemførte i årene både før og efter bogens udgivelse.
