recontextualizes

Things I really hope to see out of a Jasper reform arc:

  • Jasper potentially dealing with a sense of guilt or shame that she wasn’t strong enough to prevent bad things from happening to Peridot, or her hiding her own issues because she wants to keep being the superhero figure Peridot sees her as 
  • Related to the above, Peridot gradually discovering Jasper’s vulnerabilities and struggles and having to recontextualize her relationship with Jasper not just as someone Peridot can rely on to solve problems, but also someone that might need help, and someone Peridot might be able to help.
  • Jasper evoking body language that mirrors things we have seen Amethyst do.
  • Jasper having issues like PTSD or anxiety, and the idea of strength and mental illness, “you’re strong because you keep fighting, it doesn’t mean you’re weak if not every day is easy”. This being addressed and worked with on screen in a sensitive manner.
  • Tying in with the above, Jasper being protective over Peridot and Peridot’s trauma because she empathizes with it and wants to be there for Peridot in a way that others may not have been able to be there for Jasper in the past.
  • Potential parallels between Jasper and Pearl re feelings of inadequacy and a desire to inspire and feel admired by the people around them. 
  • Jasper and Peridot having genuine bonds and this being really dang cute. 
  • Jasper coming to terms with who Steven is, processing her history with Rose, and possibly grieving the loss of the sense of closure she seems to have come to Earth in search of. If quartz mother theory, possibly a sense of solidarity between Steven and Jasper.
  • The grand untangling/processing of Jasper and Lapis and the things that happened between them. 

Of course, the floodgates don’t break all at once.  She’s recontextualizing, struggling to reassert what she thinks is the way things should be, and trying to fit the way Steven’s just made her think about him into that.

She’s trying to pay him a compliment, to offer her sincere thanks, but Homeworld hasn’t got a better word for her to use than “useful”.

But, in the end, that’s what it’s going to come down to.  You see, I don’t think there’s much room in Homeworld’s priority list for the concept of friend.

Re: a medievalpoc defense post

Someone said: “what medievalpoc does is recontextualizing art in the mode of history and she does it for free. and if you don’t think that’s pretty baller i don’t know why you’re still reading this post" 

"Recontextualizing art in the mode of history” is what all of art history is, lol. 

 So yeah, I’d rather have someone who knows what they’re talking about, is honest about who they are and isn’t an asshole anti-Semite doing it. ESPECIALLY if I’m gonna give them thousands of dollars on Patreon per month.

phntmbggr asked:

since vaporwave is about recontextualizing the past decades, ive heard some say that greco-roman art is meant to mirror and remind of the gaudy kitsch over decorated houses of the 80's and 90's, really tho its just a trope that kinda became a meme after floral shoppe

Oh yeah, I see that, makes slightly more sense now. Still can only see the floral shoppe meme every time tho I can’t take it seriously lmao

Babel Tower _ Interactive Installation from shirinabedinirad on Vimeo.

Interactive Installation by Shirin Abedinirad and Gugo Torelli.

The story of the tower of Babel happened in a time when humankind had just one language and just one place to live freely without boundaries; a united humanity of the generations. The Lord concerned that humankind could have too much power and freedom, punished them for their pride by multiplying their languages so that they could not be able to understand one another.

Babel Tower is an interactive installation that recontextualizes the spiritual architecture of the Babel Tower with modern materials, creating a union between ancient history and our present world; it is combing the past, present and offering a union for future.

The top view of installation by reflecting the sky is connecting it to the earth, symbolizing the aim of Babel tower to reach for the heaven; The structural use of mirrors, serve as a reflective vessel for light, an integral feature of paradise.

When installed in a city location it reacts with different animation patterns to the audience interaction, when placed in a natural environment its movement are changing depending on the weather conditions. This interactive installation is giving a transformative image of the world by decomposing it into parts and recomposing it into a new union.

In this installation human is having a dialogue with city and nature to become one. This installation simply within a movement of human is changing the image of the nature and is gathering the view of the entire world in one piece.

Truth, Fantasy or Fiction research 2

1.Jerry Uelsmann (photomontage)

Jerry Uelsmann is an American photographer, and was the forerunner of photomontage in the 20th century in American. Uelsmann was born in Detroit, Michigan. While attending public schools, at the age of fourteen, there sparked an interest in photography. He believed that through photography he could exist outside of himself, to live in a world captured through the lens. Despite poor grades, he managed to land a few jobs, primarily photographs of models. Eventually Uelsmann went on to earn a BA from the Rochester Institute of Technology and M.S. and M.F.A. degrees from Indiana University. Soon after, he began teaching photography at the University of Florida in 1960. In 1967, Uelsmann had his first solo exhibit at The Museum of Modern Art which opened doors for his photography career.

Uelsmann’s interpretations of landscape elements, reworked, tweaked, and recontextualized, force the viewer to actively interact with his subjects.[3] Continually in his photographs the viewer is confronted with entrances, whether they be gates, windows, trap doors, or ordinary doors. Usually the entrances are shut, but even when they are not, Uelsmann does not allow his viewer to see inside so the viewer must imagine what is inside. This is an example of the viewer having to actively interact with the photo they are forced to think more deeply and critically about their own interpretation. In Uelsmann’s art there are many right answers - and discovering them is a process that involves both artist and viewer.

Today, with the advent of digital cameras and image editing software, photographers are able to create a work somewhat resembling Uelsmann’s in less than a day. However, at the time Uelsmann was considered to have almost “magical skill” with his completely analog tools. At the time Uelsmann’s work first came to popular attention, photos were still widely regarded as unfalsifiable documentary evidence of events. However, Uelsmann, along with Lucas Samaras, was considered an avant garde shatterer of this popular mindset and help to expand the artistic boundaries of photography.

2.Erwin Blumenfeld

Erwin Blumenfeld (1897–1969) was a photographer and artist born in Germany. He was best known for his fashion photography published in Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar in the 1940s and 1950s.[1][2] In addition to fashion photography, he produced an extensive body of celebrity portraiture, fine-art photography (including black and white nudes), drawings, and Dada collages. He made photographs while a resident of Germany, the Netherlands, France, and the United States, and has been called “one of the most innovative and influential photographers of the 20th century.”


So far I have got two prime directions of the theme truth, fantasy or fiction, one is photomontage and the other one is fashion photography. There is one thing interesting about these two themes is, when audiences looking at a photomontage, they can easily recognise that it is fiction/fantasy. The photographers presenting the fiction/fantasy in photomontage and they did not try to cover the truth that it is not the reality. Whereas in fashion photography, the photographer trying to present the figure of perfection in photos, and they try to convince audiences that the perfection is real, even though they used techniques to make the model look perfect.

Liquify tool

https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/using/liquify-filter.html

Liquify tool can effectively change the shape of the model, no matter it’s body shape or the chin line. Admittedly, one of the standards of beauty is slim body shape, therefore the use of liquify tool is more and more popular nowadays. Especially on the fashion magazine covers, magazines, especially fashion magazines are making the figure of perfection on their covers. The model on the covers are normally slim and good looking. Although in a way it is a twist of truth as not all people can reach that standard, I think there’s nothing wrong about making figures of perfection, it is the nature of humanity that people are attracted toward beautiful things.

Project Proposal

I propose to create an all-immersive experience in one of the visual arts studio classrooms in which a performance will take place. In order to take the space that resembles a gallery and transform the audience’s place and viewpoint, a performance - whether it be dance or theatre - will take place and people will be allowed to walk through spaces that they usually view from the audience pit. The performers will be scouted from the local clubs and organizations to see who would be willing to perform. This piece is inspired by Marina Abramovic’s work ‘The Artist is Present.’ Whereas Abramovic recontextualizes the space of the gallery as a very personal location by sitting face-to-face with the guests and making herself a heavy presence in the room, the project seeks to emphasize the guests’ presence in the space by creating an experience that is inclusive and yet alienating.

Besides the usage of human bodies as actor and performers, I will not be using any other materials. I may not be able to find any performers who are willing to take part in the project for no pay. Then I would need to find another method to bring the experience into the space.

One location that I propose for this project is the Mandeville 3115B classroom or one of the quads that is empty across the hall from the classrooms. The space will have to be big enough to allow for viewers and performers to have enough space. A walled-in room is preferable. The more it resembles the white cube gallery, the better.

Documentation will occur with photographs and perhaps a short video to fully demonstrate what went on. There will be no documentation of the process and rehearsal of setting up the project as that part is not the most important aspect of the piece. The most important part to document will be the end product and the imagery of people walking through - or maybe not walking through - the space that is provided.

I am a solo artist taking part and going through all of the required steps for this project. I will do the writing as well as the planning and execution.

Challenges may include the possibility of not finding any willing participants, in which case I will have to look for an alternative. Otherwise, another challenge would be to encourage people to actually walk through the space in order to bring the viewer and the performer onto the same stage instead of having them loiter around the edges and watch a performance as they would at any other performance show. The point is to bring the theater to the viewers on a level plane. To encourage people to do so, I may be stage managing on the side, calling out to people and directing them as I would any other actor or performer.

I would preferably keep the budget as nonexistent, as volunteers for the project would be the best alternative. Otherwise, nothing else is needed to be purchased for this project.

Schedule:
2/14: Pick a piece of literature/theater to perform
2/16: Have people ready to perform with
2/20: Perform the piece

Babel Tower is the latest artwork by Shirin Abedinirad (previously) who has become known for her outdoor mirror installations designed to reflect landscapes and elements of architecture. This newest piece, a collaboration with interaction designer Gugo Torelli, adds a kinetic component to a stair-stepped ziggurat that simultaneously reflects elements of the sky, horizon, and ground while slowly rotating 360 degrees. She shares about the piece:

Babel Tower is an interactive installation that recontextualizes the spiritual architecture of the Babel Tower with modern materials, creating a union between ancient history and our present world; it is combing the past, present and offering a union for future. The top view of installation by reflecting the sky is connecting it to the earth, symbolizing the aim of Babel tower to reach for the heaven; The structural use of mirrors, serve as a reflective vessel for light, an integral feature of paradise.

For my meditation, I was hoping to find a complicated image with a lot of separate elements that I could copy and paste and adequately screw with to come up with an even more complicated (or with chance, a simpler). Inspired by my friend’s computer background I chose Piet Mondrian’s painting Broadway Boogie Woogie. Through more or less random copying, pasting, and deleting, I came up with the “revised” version, not seen above because the file became unopenable, at least to me.


As for the text portion of the class, I chose to use the text of the online syllabus (found at http://air.decontextualize.com/) and see what I could wrangle out of it. My first experiment involved a simple find and replace of “of” with “if.” There were no particularly interesting sentences but it did lead to some confusion the way typos do - a brief glance backwards and some hesitation as you realize something isn’t quite right.

After that I used the same text and removed spaces from it. It resulted in the above picture, which reminded me of when a website breaks and displays the entire site as a jumble of text. I don’t know if this happens to you but this happens to me quite a bit.
