Robert Rauschenberg’s “Tracer” (1963) and Marcel Duchamp’s “Network of Stoppages” (1914) embody the contemporary 20th century movement that uses collages and readymades to produce a new form of art. Both artists are using the so-called copy and paste technique to achieve three-dimensionality – the background is always a separate image from the main object of the artwork. For example, Rauschenberg is using a fragment of “Venus with a Mirror” by Titian and a mixture of human-made (heavy machinery, helicopters, geometric figures) and nature-made objects (birds, humans). The whole composition and the choice of color in “Tracer” seem to resemble sky. On the other hand, Duchamp pastes graphs and geometric lines over relatively undistinguishable
In the movie Alien the director Ridley Scott creates tension and suspense using a range of filmic techniques which include camera angles, diegetic and non-diegetic sounds and symbolic movie props. These techniques are used in the scene involving the isolated crew members searching for Jones the cat. The camera follows the group that includes the protagonist Ripley with two others, Brett and Parker, symbolizing something is going to happen to them.
Spurred on by exhibitions, industry sponsorship and education programmes, the artists of the 1960s began to grapple with the space age. The launch of Sputnik in 1957 prompted a new interest in the world of the machine, yet the artistic approach to technology differed from the Futurist and
“Alien Notion” by Chip Rowe was featured in The Playboy Forum in February 2003. In this article Chip Rowe writes about the attempts of creationist to bring God into public schools. According to Chip Rowe, after the Supreme Court ruled that teaching biblical creationism in public school is a violation
“Vrrrrrrrr” sounds the fans cooling the projectors displaying video instillations of Terry Berkowitz “the last supper”. As I strolled into this gallery, I instantly thought of both “ted talks” we previously had this semester and how the artist we using rather unconventional means to portray their art. In visiting the
I enjoyed learning about them and looking at it. Prior to doing more research on them, I just thought their work wasn't art and just random things put up/built in places. Now that I know more about it, I am able to fully understand it and enjoy it better. I couldn't live with this in my house, it would take up too much space. Theoretically however, I think I would enjoy having this in my house. I t has a nice meaning behind it and it would be nice to see everyday. It is aesthetically successful in my opinion, it just works so well. I would say this art piece is a mix between formalism and Imitationalism. I believe both are what makes an artwork aesthetically successful. The whole thing, from how it was constructed to the meaning behind it, are the reasons why I think this piece is
John Volk was the architect that designed The Museum of Fine Arts and explained the structure as such: “a museum should give a feeling of permanence and that is what I have tried to do with this building”. His plan was well executed, when I arrived to the museum I noticed two different designs. The front of the museum reminded me of the Ionic Order, the Volutes and the molded bases became my main focus. The beige paint seemed like a great fit as well, it added to the light and airy flow within the museum and gave me further evidence that the Ionic order outside represented what was displayed inside. However, the actual style of the building was a Palladian Style which originated from Europe in the 1500’s.
Seeing David Hockney speak about his book was very interesting to me. Watching him speak about his ideas opened up my mind and made me even consider different ideas. Hockney argues that it is very possible that many artists discover the type of techniques that he does. Hockney spoke of a very interesting topic. This would generally be a subject that wouldn't brought to my attention, but this discussion made me think of things in a totally different way.
The group concentrated on form and texture. The group translated scale and detail into organic, sometimes abstract design (Jacobs, 1995).
I chose this work because the several colors and sizes of circles and complicated compositions on the canvas looked as if it has a special context. I can see very careful and thin brushworks in some circles which are overlapped with other circles; in contrast, the background of this work is used a few sloppy brushstrokes because there are some traces of them. The use of color for the background and most remarkable center circle are so dark, but most circles around it are so colorful secondary and tertiary colors. The composition of it is the several sized and perfect circles with the asymmetrical balance which created a mysterious harmony. If I imagine that the piece is a 3D place, I describe that it is a flat geometric shape because I cannot see any shadows and highlights in the circles which give a three-dimensional feeling, but I can see the depth of them by overlapping each other and distance between the circles and dark background. Therefore, there are many two-dimensional circles spread in the deep and wide dark
Kant has a particular separation between free and accessory of what a certain thing is; a design that pleases a night club may not be appropriate in a senior home. With so many types of art forms, we are hardly able to ignore them and become disinterested, eventually curiosity will take its course.
Writing Assignment: Port of Call: Earth by Joe Scarpa Out of all the public sculptures I have had the pleasure of viewing, the one that intrigued me the most was the sculpture located in Southside Park named Port of Call: Earth which was created by Joe Scarpa. The piece towers over
Bringing together technology alongside with art and science, Calatrava’s works transcend what is known and common to a new level of sophisticated architecture, combining the traditional aspect of life with new modern world. Calatrava’s work has been widely controversial, creating strong reactions from being loved and adored to hated and loathed
Art can take many forms and is all around you. For example, your phones. They were once designed or imagined. They came to life, obviously, because almost
Another integral component Carus discusses in his thesis is the ability of a genuine work of art to contain a coherent whole, or otherwise serve as a “world in
