What is emulation?

What is emulation?

Emulation is a process which recreates digital art so that it will remain an artwork even though the technology which created it may have become obsolete. Art made with the earliest cameras, software and computers is conserved by emulating artworks using newer, existing technology.

Tapestry

Tapestry is a woven form of textile. It is generally heavy, and the completed work has a decorative pattern, design or realistic depiction of a portrait or real life activities. Tapestries were hung on castle walls and behind thrones as symbols of royal authority.

Feminist art

Refers to the art that branched from the feminist art-movement between the years 1960-1970. It grew with the intention of criticizing the 20th century gender ideals including the canon of art history by creation of dialogue between artwork and the viewer through feminist lens.

Plate

A plate is a broad, concave, but mainly flat vessel on which food can be served. A plate can also be used for ceremonial or decorative purposes. Most plates are circular, but they may be any shape, or made of any water-resistant material. Generally plates are raised round the edges, either by a curving up, or a wider lip or raised portion. Vessels with no lip, especially if they have a more rounded profile, are likely to be considered as bowls or dishes, as are very large vessels with a plate shape.
