Walking through the exhibition was an interesting experience. As I walked through the exhibition I noticed that the walls of the exhibition were all white. This made the artwork stand out. I really enjoyed walking through the exhibition and seeing the different pieces of artwork. I thought that is was neat how a series of artwork from the same artist was presented on one wall or on one section of the wall. The first pieces of artwork I saw were the "Mirror and Window" series. There were five of these pictures. It seemed that the artist was trying to catch what people do when they walk past a window; do they look through it, do they look at their reflection, or do they just walk right past it? I also thought that the artwork with the animal cut outs of different everyday objects was fascinating. I especially liked the piece where there were penguin cut outs on different boxes, and how we could see what were in the boxes from the penguin cut outs.
The one piece that caught my eye was "Emily in the Sanctuary." This piece grabbed my attention because of the beautiful stain glassed window. However, when I got closer to the piece I no longer noticed the stain glassed window I noticed how mess the room in the piece was. There were two pieces to "Emily in the Sanctuary." One piece, the first piece that I looked at, contained a beautiful stain glassed window in a messed room. The second piece contained another beautiful stain glassed window in a clean and organized room. I thought this piece was interesting because the stain glass window caught my eye from far away, but when I got closer different aspects of the photo caught my eye.
This picture is from an Italian Garden (known for their perfection.)
This is part of the garden at Sissinghurst Castle, which was actually created in the 1930s but based off of classic English gardens.
Some of the oldest gardens are Roman gardens, this one has been restored, obviously, but this just goes to show you that even way back then people found beauty and art in the biological world. They have even uncovered marvelous gardens in Pompeii. These Roman gardens are essentially the basis for all other gardens.
I found a fantastic person to talk about today, but I'm not sure anybody here had talk about him before... hope not.This guy is called Stelarc, who is an Australia performance artist with mutifarious creative thought. Firstly I got to know about him from his piece called "Ear on arm". (link on his website: http://www.stelarc.va.com.au/earonarm/index.html ) The sparkle of this picture is described as "his implanted, wifi enabled "third" ear" (in another website), of which I think it shows an awesome combination of human and technology.
http://www.stelarc.va.com.au/ Here is his official website. Every time you open his personal website, it will show you a different picture of his creation. Here are a couple of one copied from his website, and lots of them like a cool rhapsody of human and technology, living body and feelingless machine, and conjecture and truth of the future.
I think I'm going to find more about him to talk next week.
|||@_@: I was just wondering: was he the same person who put a tiny machine in his stomach?
