The Artsnova Website Logo

Artsnova logo

As a part of my web site creation process, I undertook to create a logo that would be both visually interesting and descriptive of the nature of the Artsnova web site.

Since digital art is a visual medium, I felt that incorporating the human eye into the logo was a necessity. The creation of digital art uses computer hardware and software to bring to life the artist's imaginings. To represent these digital tools as a cog in the form of a sunburst.

Within the eye itself, it is the pupil that is the window through which light from the outside world enters our mind. To represent the visual wonders of our universe, I created within the pupil a globular cluster. To view a globular cluster through a telescope is truly a wondrous vision.

And there you have it: the story of the creation of the Artsnova logo.

The world may indeed by considered as a vast machine, in which the great wheels are originally set in motion by those which are very minute, and almost imperceptible to any but the strongest eyes.
