My fear of technology accompanies me since I have started working with a computer in elementary school. I am able to do all basics on the computer but deeper knowledge and understanding is absent until the present day. Well, at least that is what I thought before researching for this last post. And I have to admit that I am not that bad if I start approaching technological problems and start actively dealing with technology.
My idea was to combine work and useful.
Work was: Research a topic about technology that interests you.
The useful thing was: Finally becoming better organized with the notes I take for homework and my personal life, organizing my pictures and other files on my computer.
Commercials are essential in today’s society; they are a part of watching TV and nowadays they are a part of videos and movies on the web as well. I have mentioned in my post Mobile Advertisment-useful or pointless that today a mass production of advertisments and commercials lead to a surplus of adverts. As a result many adverts are not memorable anymore. Most commercials are not worth to see besides some really good adverts (which always depends on the taste of the consumer) that come from big companies that have the budget to finance them.
Continuing with my goal to take a look at different types of art, I will present a couple of blogs that talk about the topic video mapping.
Video mapping is a technique used by artists to transform surfaces of building or objects into life with the help of light, sound and videos. I found a couple of interesting explanations of the term.
Inspired by the art galleries in Dublin I decided to write a blog post about the easy and fast way to inform interested people via the internet about art galleries. My first part presented three modern exhibitions that I visited during my stay in Dublin. This week I would like to show you some very impressive art galleries that inspire me every day. These art galleries are very close to the place I grew up- the Strausberger Platz.
Art plays a significant role in today’s society and it is a big part of our culture. We can find it visible for everyone on the streets, or closed back in a museum, in your child’s sketchbook, on your own walls, or in galleries. Art galleries expose art pieces and sell many of their exhibits. Some galleries are quite big who are run by famous artists and again others use art galleries to promote unknown artists. Their small galleries host different exhibitions on a regular basis.
In cities like London, Paris or New York you can find well established big art galleries but over the past years the art scene also developed in smaller cities. Many small art galleries opened up. Often they just have a single show room where they present modern exhibits that are worth to see because they are so different. The downside about being a small gallery is the disadvantage that the galleries are not well known.
Blogging about art with regard to technology is more gripping than I expected it to be. I have learned and discovered so many new and interesting things since I have chosen the topic. So far I took a closer look into different types of art such as painting, architecture, designing and art in the Pergamon Museum. I would like to extend my examination to advertisement followed by commercials and video installation.
iPod Shuffe, Nano, Classic and Tough; iPhone 3G, 3GS, 4 and iPad 1 and 2 – i something in all variations and i do not care.
I have to admit that I have not been a big fan about the latest technical releases by apple. I simply did not see the purpose of an iPad which looks exactly like a bigger iPod Tough.
BUT my perspective has changed since I found out not long ago that people are able to paint amazing pictures on their iPads. They use technology to create a piece of art. I was simply blown away when I saw youtube videos and pictures about those paintings. Since my interests are drawn to art I could not understand why I have not seen iPad paintings beforehand. I would like to show you the technique and some interesting examples to introduce you to a new type of art.
