Bridges 2011 Short Paper
The Art of Manual Stone Carving as a Leap to Its Virtual Future
(Proceedings pages 501–504)
In conjunction with the talk and the exhibited multisculpture works
in stone complementing our participation to the Pécs 2010
conference , this paper wants to deliver in phenomenological
terms a closer look at the very generic side---geometrical aspects
and mechanics--- of the perennial practice of manual stone carving.
This can become a base for future bridging to maths and applied
maths that nowadays buttress all knowledge, including the most
subjective: art itself. The possibility for modeling is evidenced
by the literature available in the neighboring domain of the tooling
industry devoted to percussive rock drilling. One can even start
dreaming of beyond. As this short paper holds but limited iconography,
more and larger images are provided on the Conference Disk.
