The Iliad and the trichromatic theory 

Tags: , , | Categories: art, colour, technical media

​ Three glittering dragons to the gorget rise,
Whose imitated scales against the skies
Reflected various light, and arching bow’d,
Like colour’d rainbows o’er a showery cloud
(Jove’s wondrous bow, of three celestial dyes,
Placed as a sign to man amidst the skies).

Coincidence or Plagiarim?

Tags: , , , | Categories: art, digital media

Ideas improve. The meaning of words participates in the improvement. Plagiarism is necessary. Progress implies it. It embraces an author’s phrase, makes use of his expressions, erases a false idea, and replaces it with the right idea.
