Engineers likely think of 2D and 3D in terms of product design and demonstrating what a product can do; artists likely see 2D and 3D in terms of art and showing it in a new light. Two different purposes, but both can appreciate 2D and 3D. From January 11-14, 2005, 30 2D and 3D images will be on display at Macworld Conference & Expo in San Francisco. The images will be chosen from among the entries to the 7th Annual Macworld Conference & Expo Digital Art Contest. To enter, send your digital art and an entry form by November 18. Go to www.macworldexpo.com/gallery.
