Art Conservation, Narrated

Julian Baumgartner of Baumgartner Fine Art Restoration in Chicago works to conserve this painting, “The Assassination of Archimedes.” Obscured by a darkened varnish and mounted to a wood panel the artwork is cleaned and the panel removed using both modern and traditional techniques. Using routers, hand planes and scalpels the wood is painstakingly removed form the thin paper in order to facilitate the preservation of the paper via archival mounting to acid-free board. Employing archival and reversible materials and techniques, Baumgartner ensures that the piece is preserved and stable for generations to come.

Note: Julian mistakenly refers to the painting as “The Assassination of Aristotle” when in fact the poor chap about to part with his head is Archimedes.

Lucas the Spider is a test character created by digital animator Joshua Slice for the purpose of working on his techniques. “I’m responsible for the design, modeling, rigging, animation, lighting, and rendering,” he says. Lucas’ form was inspired by jumping spiders and is voiced by Slice’s four-year-old nephew, also named Lucas. People are saying that Lucas is the cutest spider EVAR and is helping cure their arachnophobia. Folks are also asking Slice to expand Lucas into his own movie!
