Jeff Mihalyo is a professional artist and software interface designer.
After studying fine art at Otis/Parsons in Los Angeles he returned to his native Seattle to work in Microsoft‘s multimedia division. While working with the MSN interface team, Mr. Mihalyo developed a variety flatbed scanning techniques that broke with conventional methods. Explorations include using corrective lenses, developing 3D image methods, and the construction of a 6-scanner array. First generation three-pass scanners are used for most of these experiments, because the unique lighting effects that can be created during the scanning process cannot be easily achieved with a single-pass device. The early scannography works by the artist did not factor in print resolution as they were designed for onscreen display only. Later works were created for print and film (transparency) and resulted in the artist’s first scannography exhibit in 2001.
