No no, the other left.
Inspiration from pictures, drawings, and collages seemed easy. I thought I could go to a website, see a couple pictures, and be happy with what I found. I was wrong. I was way wrong. I wasn't inspired at all. I barely even took in the images, barely processing them, and barely caring about them all. Then, I realized, I had become apathetic about the whole thing. My entire thought process of one of complete apathy. Poor me, I had lost my creative muse that I usually had in my mind.
Then it hit me.
I'll post stuff that didn't motivate me at all, so I know what -not- to use in my project. Broad? Yes. However, it will help decide what I need to do to add 'flare' to my Goals project.
It incorporates a butterfly into the scene, however, its wings are made up of different names, icons to the movie. It lacks definition. It lacks reason. A butterfly is beautiful, yes, but the image itself is a lie. Other than the wing pattern, no other form of a butterfly exists. It's merely a representation that fools the mind into thinking it simply is a butterfly. It clutters the picture with a rainbow of raindrops falling down to create the title 'Beautiful Losers'.
It uses this collage of thing to present a montage of 'losers' that did great things. However, because it's so cluttered with 'beautiful' things, it lacks any real reason. Why is there leaves on the border? Yes, leaves in autumn are beautiful, but leaves by themselves, without any sort of setting is mundane and meaningless. I want to create absolute understanding with a clear, concise message, but with artistic reasoning behind it. I don't think anything should just be to be, I want complex reasoning behind it, so it has a solidary.
I like the idea behind this. I can't hate on it... well, yes I can. I think the design is tacky as hell. I'm not going to bring a date back to my place, then go 'Hey! Check out this door I made! It has a dragon on a sword! This will get me laid, right?' Cynical? Yes. Crude? Yes. True? ...well, I dunno, maybe some girls love dragons. There's weirder fetishes. I adore the design behind the door, however. The actual print is kinda lame, but the use of LED lights in a pattern such as that is very interesting. One of my friends is a Electrical Engineer, and I appreciate a lot of that stuff more once I've seen him working on a project like that. It can be tedious, and there's very little to tell you what you're doing is right or wrong. It's all based on self-interest and admission of defeat. (If you get stuck, that is).
However, I cannot sit back and agree with the claims hinted at in class. Math is Art. Infact, Math is probably the hardest form of art to ever accomplish. Just like Art, it's under appreciated to some people, and understood by even less. It guides everyone in our world, and even inspires them. (Take Calc 4 and try not to get inspired into committing frisbee seppuku. Inspires anger like no other.) Math is also like a language. It flows. It bases itself in all the other sciences, and has the ability to connect people without sharing the same language. If that isn't art, then art is dead to me.
I get this. We wanna be more European or Japanese and try to combine things into smaller things, so it saves room.
But, no, just no. I don't want to do my laundry when I sit down to get down to business. I'm never going to think, 'Lemme go to the bathroom to do my laundry!'. It's not intuitive. It just seems stupid. I want to make something intuitive, so my project will make sense to people who look at it.
