Modern technologies in art

A team of scientists has begun work on creating a digital map of Venice that will preserve a “copy” of the sinking city. Every year the islands of the Italian city go under water more and more. According to scientists, the prospects for the disappearance of one of the most beautiful places on the planet in the near future are quite large. In this regard, the team of the Federal Polytechnic School of Lausanne and several private IT companies have developed a joint project for laser scanning both inside and outside all the historic buildings of the island of San Giorgio, which made it possible to create virtually avatars of monuments.

Investment in art

New York-based startup Masterworks, which allows investors to acquire small stakes in iconic works of art for about $ 20 per transaction, has faced a surge in demand during the pandemic. In this regard, the team acquired 15 new works worth $ 31.8 million, including masterpieces by Banksy, George Kondo and other contemporary art stars. And the recently published $ 1.52 million piece by graffiti artist and figurine maker KAWS sold out piece by piece in a matter of hours. Founded by a renowned collector in 2017, Masterworks has long been one of the leaders in alternative investments. The organization offers investment objects not only in the visual arts, but also in classic cars and even racehorses. Despite the associated risks, during the pandemic, art became the main area of ​​choice for investors.
