Can digital art be considered fine art

...In digital art, a person has anonymity from construction and immunity to error. Clicking ‘print’ and ‘undo’ cannot be considered equal to brush work. Digital art is a mere manipulation of the real and traditional art. It is just meant for convenience in terms of accessibility and ease .

Enchanting a disenchanted world: Revolutionizing the means of consumption

...There are some social and political policies that have affected the development, growth, or devolution of Cathedrals of Consumption. There are efforts through policies to find new uses for of the consumption cathedrals such as the big box stores, soon-to-be empty. Additionally, in some cases, I have seen true devolution as where contemporary consumption means are replaced by independently owned small shops. Moreover, I have seen in some malls especially the strip malls vacated by the chains bein...

John wick Movie Review

...Action movies ought not to depend on character or story depth. In its place, they have to hinge on action. In the movie “John wick”, what John lacks in personality advancement and contextual story is compensated for in action. Most of the film is composed of scenes centering on John devastating his adversaries with a flawless objective and unmistakably controlled training. John might seem small, but a real destroyer when in action as presented in the film with close to...

The Feminist Aesthetics of Virginia Woolf: Modernism, Post-Impressionism, and the Politics of the Visual

...In conclusion, modernism can imply three similar meanings. First, modernism can mean novelty or innovation. Modernism can also imply modern period based on the association between reality and empiricism of philosophy. Last, modernism can be associated with arts. Modernism is different from postmodernism because it attempted to bring out literary work based on reality though in a fragmented approach, thus creating transcendental meaning. Modernism was stimulated by new larg...

Analysis of the last scene in the play “The History Boys”

...This passage explicitly talks about Hector, the English teacher who is not alive at the moment. We gather that he had died earlier on in an accident. Being a passage that is ending the play, it effectively captures the attitudes of the rest of the characters about Hector. The language used portrays a mix of moods; sadness and happiness. It is sad when everyone remembers the contributions that Hector had in the teaching fraternity and he is now dead. It portrays happiness w...

The Letters of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

...Generally, I think Amadeus has been one of the best expressions of art, music, the genius artist. This is what makes the movie to be described as a modern classic. It offers a completely new dimension and point of view of classic music. This piece of art not only takes us through different and diverse characters but it also mixes music with the real world realities like envy. The director of this movie has made a number of movies but however many there are or are still to come, I doubt there wil...

Compare and Contrast Essay: Reading vs. Listening to Music

...Music and Reading both can be enjoyed any where and are good hobbies that can have a positive and negative influence on a person. Phones now are able download music and e-books so it makes them portable. Even though books don't require electricity, music does.(The exception is live music). If your device for listening to music runs out of battery, you are unable to listen to music. On the other hand, reading requires adequate lighting; if you don't have enough lighting , reading can actually dam...

Globalization in the Music industry

...Hopefully, as the future of music and globalization proceeds, we will see a convergence between the music industry, artists and consumers that will benefit all parties. Globalization has the power to ruin industries or propel them to heights unseen. In the case of the music industry, although it has been affected negatively in the past, recent data shows that for the first time in years, the music industry has seen growth due to globalization and the widespread popularity of the artist Adele (Bl...

The characters portrayed in Disney films create these false ideologies of what women should grow up to be. 1. In the movies, the princesses are always paired with princes that live in castles.

Jardi tancat

...Gestural movements are incorporated throughout Jardi Tancat. One of the motifs include ‘sowing’ or seed planting action, which involves a low, curved line of the spine again to emphasize the straining work. Hunched over with a slumped dynamic determining the draining work, the dancers travel laterally across the space with heavy, limping ‘step-cross’ footwork. This pathway is performed in unison in the opening silent section, indicating planting endless rows of crops. As they travel diag...

Worldviews Observed in the Film “A River Runs Through It”

...Aside from a biblical worldview depicted in the beginning a postmodern worldview is shown while the boys are running around and stop to look at some women who are standing outside what appears to be a brothel. The boys are also involved in a scuffle with some other young boys. While Paul and Norman are raised in a religious home with very strict rules it’s clear that they are surrounded by people with different upbringings from theirs. Their day-to-day activities show how they interact with th...

Law abiding citizen movie review

...Overall the film was well worth my time. It was full of action and suspense. The quality of the film, to me, was superb. Everything from the acting, set, music, to the script, and the costumes were spot on. This movie opened my eyes to some of the things our justice system needs to greatly improve on. I enjoyed the well thought out storyline and how everything unfolded. It kept my attention and kept me eager to see what would happen next. As crazy as it is to think, situations where murders and ...

Mats Ek

...I enjoyed so much writing this essay. I think Mats Ek is an absolute genius, his choreographies are brilliant original and innovative. I love his reinterpretations of the three ballet classics, and his choreographic style. The movement vocabulary is unconventional and provocative. He is a choreographer simple and in its clarity and spontaneity we recognized his greatness. The messages arrive immediately to the audience, we do not need any explications or help to understand what the choreographer...

Soundtrack analysis of "The Dark Knight Rises"

...In conclusion, I personally enjoyed the soundtrack while watching the film and didn’t think much about how the music evoked my emotions, but more how it seemingly framed each scene with the correct tone of darkness and anticipation. However, when I listened to the soundtrack without the film, I realized how emotionally connected I have become to the characters in the film. During parts of this soundtrack I could feel my heart rate increase as I focused on the pounding drums, knowing that Bane ...

High school graduates should take a year off before entering college

...The term "selfie" was discussed by photographer Jim Krause in 2005, although photos in the selfie genre predate the widespread use of the term. In the early 2000s, before Facebook became the dominant online social network, self-taken photographs were particularly common on MySpace. However, writer Kate Losse recounts that between 2006 and 2009 (when Facebook became more popular than MySpace), the "MySpace pic" (typically "an amateurish, flash-blinded self-portrait, often taken in front of a bath...

The green table analysis

...At the end of the video of this piece there was a quote from Kurt Jooss, “I am firmly convinced that art should never be political, that art should not dream of altering peoples convictions... I don't think any war will be shorter or avoided by sending audiences into "The Green Table." This quote clearly explains that Jooss’ intentions were not to influence politics, but simply to display the endless cycle of war in an art form. I think he did this very well, and although the piece was overa...

Play Hamlet vs. Mel Gibson's movie version

...As a result of these modifications, I felt this version of Hamlet was more fast-paced and engaging. It did not drag. I appreciated this production over the other Hamlet films I have seen, because it was made more interesting through director’s shifting camera technique. The setting and costumes of this play were also historically accurate for that time period. And the lighting was well done -not too dark. As far as the actors go, Mel Gibson gave an energetic interpretation of the melancholy H...

Baroque vs. Classical Music Essay

...I prefer Baroque music over Classical music. I chose Baroque music because it is a lot more interesting. Classical music is too simple compared to Baroque music. With Baroque music, more emotion is evoked. A great example of this is Vivaldi’s “The Four Seasons” where you could actually tell which season is portrayed by which piece by listening carefully. To me, Classical music is too boring and repetitive. Baroque music always keeps me on my toes, keeping me guessing at what is coming nex...

Benin Bronzes

...In summing, the last century has seen the displacement of many valuable pieces of Benin sculpture from the Royal palace which has not came to the west of its own free accord but arrived through the determined efforts of colonial powers to subjugate Benin. There has been much debate in the past over what to do with the art works and in more recent times as to who and where the art belongs and whether or not the concerned parties who do hold and own the art works are the right people and places to...

Cinderella Argument Paper

...In Walt Disney’s Cinderella, Cinderella is forced to try the slipper on, after her sisters try it on and are unsuccessful. In both “Cinderella” by Anne Sexton, and “Cinderella” by Jakob and Wilhelm Grimm, the step sisters decide to cut body parts to fit into the slipper. One cutting a toe off and the other cutting part of her heel off, until not long after, with help from the fairy god mother, or Cinderella’s mother that the prince finds out. I feel that blood and cutting off body pa...

Comic books

...Speaking of Rorschach’s mask in terms of representation in both versions: in comic book mask was changing, but due to media of comics, we could only see specific patterns, which were deliberately drawn as something straightforward to emphasise what character was going through, or just like vague patterns as audiences’ personal test, especially when Rorschach was facing towards reader in close ups. This ingenious way of creators to establish once again comic book’s media and their understan...

?omparison between watching movies at home or at the cinema

...Furthermore, we will have the quiet and nighty atmosphere and we won’t be worrying about disturbing from others while we are watching. In fact when we grab our family or our friends to watch a movie at the cinema, this could be a good and memorable experience. However cinemas do have some disadvantages such as going to the cinema could be more expensive than watching the movie at home, we may not like to sit next to stringers and even we maybe have to be aware of them. Also we have to follow ...

Henri Matisse: “The Window”, France 1916

...I was drawn to this painting because of the bright light coming through the window, which gave it a unique look from all of the other paintings around it. This painting will stand out in a crowd, because of its interesting look of a mix of dark and light colors. Even though the painting is, at first sight, bright and cheery, when you look at it for a while and interpret the meaning it has a lonely look but is still very satisfying to view. Matisse’s desire to reproduce the world accurately in ...

...Rizal, a brave and a man of his word, was never afraid whatever theconsequences he may suffer because of his writings that are against the friarsand also to Spaniards. His goal was to free the Philippines from the unjustgovernment of Spanish colony.In summary, the movie talks mostly of Rizal’s life until his death and thecreation of his great novels.

Quality Management Virgin Atlantic

...* How did Virgin reached success with its new upper class addition? At first, the design team discussed a number of flat beds' layouts with the managers. Then, they prioritized the features to ensure that the important features are included in the layout. After that, the engineering department ensured that the layout is safe and undergoes the regulations. Then, the layout of separate seats and sleeping areas was passed to the development stage after the approval of the board of directors. In add...

Reign Over Me Evaluation

...They story is not far-fetched and is very comparable to the realities of many people today. As far as the acting is concerned, both actors play a side the viewer is not accustomed to seeing compared to other movies Adam Sandler and Don Cheadle are known for. Other movies like, Billy Madison (Adam Sandler) or Brooklyn’s Finest (Don Cheadle), these actors have very different parts. This movie shows the talent in each of the individual actors. Both actors play off each other during the movie whic...

Alvin Ailey - Cry

...The second manipulation of the torso generated movements can be seen in the circular leaps and turns across the stage. This, in conjunction with the continuous torso generated movements reinforces the liberty of movement as she excitedly turns and pirouettes around the stage. The repetition of the torso generated movements and reaching of the arms above her highlights the will to endure the years of slavery in order to achieve freedom, and the success in that particular endeavour. The dancer is ...

"Wag the Dog" The Movie

...Wag the Dog is a perfect example that should show people that it is possible to trick an entire country by using the idea of classical realism and postmodern/constructive thoughts and apply them to the real world. Public should be an active, thoughtful consumer of news and wag the tail, instead because we became more passive we get waged. Furthermore what movie has shown is that the two main characters a Washington fixer and Hollywood producer fit like hand and glow. This should show us that tha...

Are Professional Athletes and Actors Overpaid

...Completely socialist societies have proven in history to be a failure. Typically there is a Darwin Effect of “Survival of the Fittest” which dominates. There obviously needs to be some middle ground here, but finding a solution is difficult. In this case of actors and athletes, I believe us as the consumer and their supporters have the power to control this huge inequality and disparity by saying, “Enough is enough!” and demand that some rationale come into play. Paying these individual...

?Effects of globalization on Indian society

...a. The penetration of global pop music has marginalized the traditional Indian music. b. There is an increase in tendency of playing western songs and pop music during marriage functions, birthday celebrations, engagements etc. c. Folk and tribal music is nearly extinct. Government is taking steps to preserve it. d. One can see in India that inhibitions have been diluted because of the advent of media and the medium of entertainment. This has also naturally had some affect on the old cultural va...

?My favourite film: Avatar

...The main character of the film is Jake Sully, a former Marine. When his brother is killed in a robbery, he decides to take his place in a mission on the distant world of Pandora. There he learns of greedy figurehead Parker Selfridge’s intentions in which he wants to drive off the native “Na’vis” in order to mine for the precious material which can be found in their rich woodland.

Beauty Is Found in Exceptional but Not in Commonplace

...Victor Hugo used the building as the backdrop for his magnificent book The Hunchback of Notre Dame and thousands of tourists travel untold miles to view the cathedral. That sort of beauty is not p ossessed by just any church on the corner. In conclusion, it 's clear that true beauty is found not in the commonplace, but in the exceptional. The Mona Lisa and Notre Dame Cathedral are both exceptional examples of fairly commonplace things and it is thes e exceptions that are noted a s truly b eauti...

William Wordsworth

...William Wordsworth was an outstanding English romantic poet. Even after many hardships, he found a way to be extremely brilliant and write some of the best poems of all times. Wordsworth’s most famous work, The Prelude, is considered by many to be the crowning achievement of English romanticism. Devastated by the death of his daughter Dora in 1847, Wordsworth seemingly lost his will to compose poems. William Wordsworth died at Rydal Mount on April 23, 1850, leaving his wife Mary to publish The...

?Media - ‘When the Levees Broke’

...Politics played a large role in terms of the slow, emergency response to the tragedy. Many politicians were interviewed and mostly claimed they were unaware of what had happened in New Orleans. What was even more shocking, was how long it took president Bush to become conscious of the issue. This happened on the fifth day after the hurricane. People were starving, searching for shelter and trying to find missing relatives. Some tried to leave the city, but were met by military men with guns, who...

Disney vs Brothers Grims

...The Brother Grimms version of Cinderella is very different compared to the Walt Disney version of the fairytale. Unlike in the Disney version of Cinderella in the Brother Grimms version Cinderella’s father isn’t died his alive. However, he did remarry and Cinderella does have two stepsisters who he allows to treat Cinderella as a servant. Instead of a fairy godmother who grants Cinderella wishes she had a tree that she planted by her mother’s grave that she visits everyday and prays under....

Gwen Harwood Analysis

...Also, the lines of the final stanza, “At your side among the graves I think of death no more,” contain the positional verb, “side,” the funerary reference of “graves,” and the noun, “death,” in conjunction with the negative terms, “no more,” to combine ideas of companionship, spiritual well-being and death. This highlights the religious notion that friendship and other relationships are strengthened by religious faith, and bring about a spiritual peace that prepares one for ...
