The death of the 'still image'...

Recommended Posts

What do you think? With CGI and advances in animation... is still frame art destined to be "classical music"?

 

What's the future, where's the future?

probably, i hope it doesn't, in the future turn into the ancient language of Sanskrit... where you gotta hunt down the wisest, smartest, oldest dude and beg him for lessons like Miyagi.. that would suck, But Jay-Z tried to dead autotunes so there may be a chance?? ya think?

I think the still image is gonna die out because of CGI like I think tattoos are gonna die out because of the "graphic tee."

Actually i can see photography one day being dead and gone. I dont know if it will ever really happen, I mean there's certainly enough historical referents to believe it. I can definitely see a day when 99.9% of the world's population has never even seen a painting or taken a photograph with no intent of it being used on myface... and a few keep the artform alive maybe only for historical purposes.

 

If you look at how photography has given rise over the years to new color cameras and motion pictures, what we enjoy most from all these mediums and what's transcending the technological barriers are things like composition, light and filter effects, and images that linger for a time for us to really consume slowly and enjoy (in contrast to most tv shows blow images so fast at you your brain turns off as if it was vallium). For some photography is just an ancient video camera; an archaic light meter, or a quick way to decide on composition.

 

I mean movies are fucking great, many of which can be paused and just as easily enjoyed for the same qualities as photography, or posess the same lingering, meandering moments such as in Inglorious Basterds.

I'm gonna say photographs are gonna be safe for eternity and in fact the (editing) technology that will be made readily available to consumers will trancsend all expectation.

Consumerism isnt going to keep photography alive just like DMV portraits arent going to keep photography alive. People only take photos to put them as profile pics on myface. They dont even know what aperature or an F-stop is. It's not the same thing.

We'll eventually be plugged into machines that think for us.

Photography will become irrelevant.

The definition of art is 'without practical function.' For photography to remain art it must have NO purpose.

 

And no it's a rock.

the fact that you rely on a definition of what art is shows me you have no idea what arts potential has the ability to become.

 

there is plenty of artistic purpose in commisioned work.

 

the problem i have with commisioned art is not so much the intent but rather when its given to an innit for a minute fagget and not the seasoned vets youv put in there time and work.

 

you however come across like an art idiot that has no respect for something that potentially may open your eyes simply because it defies your magical crystal oracle of boundries.

 

i would piss on your borders and bob ross it a lake.

BLIGGITY BLARG.... SHPIGGIDY SHPOO

You meandered off topic half way into your first sentence.

And btw, commission hasnt got shit to do with anything. Being able to sell something doesnt make it art, douchebag. And artistic purpose is completely opposite to practical function. Practical function would be for instance your portrait in a police databank being used to identify you. Or your photos on myspace being used as proof of street cred.
