The Cosmic Buddha Teaser
Description:
The Cosmic Buddha Buddha Vairochana (Pilushena) with the Realms of Existence China, probably Henan province, Northern Qi dynasty, 550--77 Limestone with traces of pigment Freer Gallery of Art Purchased for the Gallery on Christmas Eve 1923 from the Chinese dealer Shanfang Taku, Beijing F1923.15 The fine narrative details that cover this monumental standing Buddha provide a rare glimpse into early Chinese symbolic visions of the Buddhist cosmos. Presented like a magical emanation from within the limestone figure, this conceptual map of the universe is associated with Vairochana, the Cosmic Buddha (Pilushena in Chinese), and the Avatamsaka sutra (Huayan jing). Along with supplying some of the first evidence for such allegorical mapping, these relief depictions reflect the amazing sophistication of Chinese narrative illustration and treatment of pictorial space. Both of these techniques had been developed over previous centuries in the fragile medium of brush painting. Small traces of pigment remaining on the surface suggest that the dense design must have been painted originally; this would have made the scenes easier to perceive and understand. To facilitate the study of such low-relief images, scholars have traditionally used rubbings with black ink on white paper, bringing stronger contrast to even-toned subjects. Digital scanning facilitates a wider variety of imaging techniques to enhance the clarity of the surface. Digital scans are also useful tools for sharing research, since source materials, related illustrations, and interpretation can be easily attached to relevant portions of the image through "hot spots."

Hubble 3D Official Trailer
Description:
Through the power of IMAX® 3D, Hubble 3D will enable movie-goers to journey through distant galaxies to explore the grandeur and mysteries of our celestial surroundings, and accompany space-walking astronauts as they attempt the most difficult and important tasks in NASA's history. The film will offer an inspiring and unique look into the Hubble Space Telescope's legacy and highlight its profound impact on the way we view the universe and ourselves. Narrated by Leonardo DiCaprio, Hubble 3D reunites the Space Station 3D filmmaking team, led by Producer/Director Toni Myers. James Neihouse, Director of Photography, also doubles as the Astronaut crew trainer. Now Playing in 3D at the Lockheed IMAX Theater in the National Air and Space Museum and in 2D at the Airbus IMAX Theater in the Udvar-Hazy Center in VA!

3D Scanning at the Smithsonian
Description:
What can you do to bring some of the Smithsonian's 137 million objects to life? Put them in 3D! This is a full-time job for two of the Smithsonian's very own "laser cowboys," Vince Rossi and Adam Metallo, who work in the Smithsonian's 3D Digitization Program Office. They work hard to document, in very high three-dimensional detail, many of our priceless and important collections so that the objects are available for research, education and general interest.

Design Dictionary: Extrusion 3D Printing
Description:
See how 3D printing works in this short video. The machine shown is a 3DS Cube, which uses extruded ABS plastic. This demonstration is courtesy of Alex Benham at 3D Systems. This "part" took about 8 hours to design and print. About this series: Design Dictionary is a new Cooper Hewitt video series that vividly illustrates a wide variety of creative techniques. Covering everything from glassblowing to bobbin lacemaking to 3D printing, the series aims to demystify the making of objects by providing a highly visual, behind-the-scenes look into designers' studios, schools and homes as they work. Each video in the fourteen-part series is under 3 minutes long and features a different designer or artisan hand-picked to demonstrate their skill in action. All videos were shot entirely on-location in New York City. Music: "Arp and Piano Beat" - Podington Bear from The Sound of Picture Production Library http://soundofpicture.com
