    The Art Dream is a fantasy journey through a series of 20th century paintings. A modern art book opens, and the paintings on each page become 3-D. In reality, these paintings are 2-D. In The Art Dream, the viewer sees a 3-Dworld through the use of computer generated models derived from the original paintings. The primary objective of the Center for Computer Art and Animation is to create computer generated art. That a work is computer generated is secondary, however, the unique properties of the computer as an art medium are always considered as an aspect of the overall piece. The Art Dream was produced with Alias I software on Silicon Graphics IRIS computers.
