Picture Stone
39,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles!A picture stone, image stone or figure stone is an ornate slab of stone, usually limestone, which was raised in Germanic Iron Age or Viking Age Scandinavia, and in the greatest number on Gotland. More than four hundred picture stones are known today. All of the stones were probably erected as memorial stones, but only rarely beside graves. Some of them have been positioned where many people could see them at bridges and on roads. They mainly differ from runestones by presenting the message in pictures rather than runes. Some picture stones also have runic inscriptions, but they tell little more than to whom the stone was dedicated. Lacking textual explanations, the image stones are consequently difficult to interpret.

Forschungsreisender, Archäologe, Museumsgründer und Diplomat: Max von Oppenheim (1860-1946) hatte außergewöhnlich viele Gesichter. Sein Lebensthema war die Entdeckung des alten Kulturraums des Vorderen Orients. 1892/93 trat er seine erste Forschungsreise an, archäologische Entdeckungen im syrischen Tell Halaf machten ihn 1899 weltberühmt. Der vorliegende Band entführt uns mit vielen historischen Aufnahmen in die faszinierende Welt dieses unermüdlichen Orient-Kenners, der durch Krieg und Inflation einen Großteil seiner Sammlung verlor. Die bereits 1929 gegründete Max-Freiherr-von Oppenheim-Stiftung setzt sich bis heute mit der Aufarbeitung seiner Forschung für ein besseres und umfassenderes Verständnis des Orients ein.Explorer, archaeologist, museum founder and diplomat: Max von Oppenheim wore many hats. His lifelong preoccupation was the discovery of the ancient cultural region of the Near East. In 1892/93, he embarked on his first expedition to Egypt, Syria, Iraq and present-day Lebanon. Archaeological discoveries in Tell Halaf in Syria made him world famous. This volume uses documentary image and text material to take us on a journey through the fascinating world of this tireless connoisseur of the Orient.

Image Management: Media Ethics And Fort McMurra...
22,60 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book examines how community leaders in the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo - Fort McMurray, an oil sands town in northern Alberta, Canada, address the issue of image management when it comes to negative coverage of their community via external media outlets. The ethnographical study employs Goffman s image management theory, McCombs and Shaw s agenda-setting theory and Christians utilitarianism in media ethics theory as its foundation for the need of telling a balanced story about the municipality. In addition, narratives of several other cities around the world have been examined for similar issues. A content analysis of a few of these highlighted stories, and qualitative interviews with selected leaders round out the exploratory study. Furthermore, questions of ethical and moral responsibilities for journalists when telling a community s account as well as how a community can help tell its story to external media outlets were also explored. In light of the in-depth research, this book serves to be a de facto call for journalists for accountability and ethical/moral responsibility when relaying a community s comprehensive narrative.

Exploring the Selfie
111,98 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This volume explores the selfie not only as a specific photographic practice that is deeply rooted in digital culture, but also how it is understood in relation to other media of self-portrayal. Unlike the public debate about the dangers of 'selfie-narcissism', this anthology discusses what the practice of taking and sharing selfies can tell us about media culture today: can the selfie be critiqued as an image or rather as a social practice? What are the technological conditions of this form of vernacular photography? By gathering articles from the fields of media studies, art history, cultural studies, visual studies, philosophy, sociology and ethnography, this book provides a media archaeological perspective that highlights the relevance of the selfie as a stereotypical as well as creative practice of dealing with ourselves in relation to technology.

Image-based Facial Animation for Human Machine ...
41,10 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Facial animation has been a topic of intensive research for more than three decades. To have a real system based on facial animation is a challenge, but there are some architectures for supporting this feature now available. The image-based face animation can produce animations impossible to tell apart from real videos. Subjective tests prove that this increases users' trust in the information presented by the computers. We think that the effectiveness of Web sites like e-commerce and e-care ones will be increased if this technique is used. You can imagine animated faces talking to customers advising them and answering their queries. In this thesis, we will investigate implementing two techniques, one through using 2D-morphing that is based on affine transformation, the other through texture mapping and other rendering techniques.
