Bildernas byggstenar: En studie om pixlar och vektorers egenskaper i form av digitala material
Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
With a new digital world that runs parallel with our physical one, we are also facing a new type of architecture and new materials that this new architecture is built on. In this thesis I examine pixels and vectors, two of the digital materials used to create pictures. By approaching them as digital materials, I have mapped their different qualities, when and where one or the other is more or less applicable and the reason behind it. My main research question asked was the following: Are the (digital) materials challenged outside their primary fields of application, and in that case, in which way? With this question in mind, I carried out a semiotic picture analysis on four pictures, later on dividing them into four different categories, based on their different qualities and their ability to deliver information. These categories can be used to determine which qualities different digital material used to create pictures possesses and therefore also help to determine what material that is most appropriate to use when a specific expression of the finish product is desirable. Furthermore, my four categories can be used as a way to challenge the materials outside their comfort zone, this due to the awareness of the materials strengths and weaknesses.
