Language is a crucial aspect of art.
We sip the art, we observe it, we stare at it- we walk around it and hopefully we discuss it.
McLuhan said the famous quote: "The media is the message"
Ooooooo how far we have swung and are starting to swing back. The cell phone has made everybody a photographer!
Everybody can take video.
However, only few know how to take those images and translate them into art. To edit and tweak and turn a blase' photo into something grand.
My daughter first is a illustrator and then an animator. I was first a graphic designer, painter then sculptress. We tend to fall back into what we know.
I have been playing with illustrator and photoshop. I want to learn after effects so the designs can have a more 3-dimensional feel.
Everything takes time. Everything is about honoring the work. Everything is about choices.
Use language today as art. Let the words flow like a dance!!
If you have nothing nice to say- then please- keep it to yourself.
Embrace the dance of language and art...Wooohooooo!! Life is something special!
