“In all the arts there is a physical component which can no longer be considered or treated as it used to be, which cannot remain unaffected by our modern knowledge and power. For the last twenty years neither matter nor space nor time has been what it was from time immemorial. We must expect great innovations to transform the entire technique of the arts, thereby affecting artistic invention itself and perhaps even bringing about an amazing change in our very notion of art.” Paul Valéry, Pièces sur L’Art
Article starts with this quote. It makes a lot sense to me. What we are trying to do this days is, trying to create a new way to art. Most of us has some ideas about combining the arts with technology. Well, combining the arts with technology is not a new idea. For example, after invention of printers they used that technology in writing and mass production of new books. By saying technology, I want to mention that, technology with computers and sensors. Those new tech. makes computers(dumb machines) very close to humans(by giving them ability to sensing). So, we are getting ready to see new formations in arts.
Also according to writer, people who witnesses in something will become an expert on that subject. Also, he mentioned that, now a days people become more involved in printed news issues like news paper. I tried to mention to paragraphs quickly. The reason behind is, everyday we are witnessing many things. At the same times, we have our blogs, accounts on web sites(such as news papers), video sharing accounts, and they are all global resources. Maybe many people haven’t realized that but we are building a new society, which is more global, aware, and open to sharing. I am really wondering about the future. I believe that globalization on the internet will effect nationalities, economies and politics in the near future. Also, I am wondering that, what is going to happen in the future, if we keep sharing everything in our life, on social sources like Facebook.
Also, I am surprised that, while he was comparing cameraman and painter, he says, painters have some distance from reality but cameramen are penetrates directly in to realty. Well, it might seem like, painters draws the objects in a way they see them, but cameramen can show the realties in an angle they see them. I mean, they can hide realities or they can show good sides of the truth by their cameras, without event touching the bad sides. For example; a cameraman can show that their country in a good shape during a war by showing their guns, tanks and some soldiers who are holding a gun in their hands happy about the situation, but other one can show like they are loosing a war by showing death bodies etc.
