DESCRIPTION
Digital Gothic Cityscapes of the University of Chicago - On Exhibit at the 6th Edition of the International Streaming Festival 12/1 - 12/18

The Streaming Festival 6th Edition
The Streaming Festival 6th Edition is sponsored and curated by the isfth Foundation, The Hague, The Netherlands, from December 1 to 18, 2011.  This online international exhibit includes  Video Artists, and for the first time this year, also 2D Artists.   The Digital Gothic series of cityscape photos by Leon Sarantos were selected for this curated exhibit.  Over 30 2D artists are participating, as well as many video and sound artists.

Digital Gothic photographic art uses images of related Gothic architectural details, like gargoyles, tracery and turrets, which are manipulated to create unusual lighting, colors, and jumps in color gradation.  This provides a dramatic modern, photographic presentation of this century-old architectural order in such a way that the order is more readily comprehended and appreciated by the general viewer.
