DESCRIPTION BOOK:

What are we not seeing? Our naked eyes see only a thin sliver of reality. We are blind in comparison to the X-rays that peer through skin, and the animals that can see in infrared or ultraviolet or with 360-degree vision. In The Reality Bubble, Ziya Tong illuminates this hidden world and takes us on a journey to examine ten of humanity’s biggest blind spots. What she reveals is not on the things we didn’t evolve to see but, more dangerously, the blindness of modern society. Fast-paced, utterly fascinating and deeply humane, this vitally important book gives voice to the sense we’ve all had – that there is more to the world than meets the eye.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

A glimpse into the mind and life of one of the most creative and enigmatic visionaries of our time, filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky • Retraces the spiritual and mystical path Jodorowsky has followed since childhood, vividly repainting events from the perspective of an unleashed imagination • Explores the development of the author’s psychomagic and metagenealogy practices via his realization that all problems are rooted in the family tree • Includes photos from Jodorowsky’s appearance at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival and from the film based on this book, which debuted at Cannes Retracing the spiritual and mystical path he has followed since childhood, Alejandro Jodorowsky re-creates the incredible adventure of his life as an artist, filmmaker, writer, and therapist--all stages on his quest to push back the boundaries of both imagination and reason. Not a traditional autobiography composed of a chronological recounting of memories, The Dance of Reality repaints events from Jodorowsky’s life from the perspective of an unleashed imagination. Like the psychomagic and metagenealogy therapies he created, this autobiography exposes the mythic models and family templates upon which the events of everyday life are founded. It reveals the development of Jodorowsky’s realization that all problems are rooted in the family tree and explains, through vivid examples from his own life, particularly interactions with his father and mother, how the individual’s road to true fulfillment means casting off the phantoms projected by parents on their children. The Dance of Reality is autobiography as an act of healing. Through the retelling of his own life, the author shows we do not start off with our own personalities, they are given to us by one or more members of our family tree. To be born into a family, Jodorowsky says, is to be possessed. To peer back into our past is equivalent to digging into our own souls. If we can dig deep enough, beyond familial projections, we shall find an inner light--a light that can help us through life’s most difficult tests. Offering a glimpse into the mind and life of one of the most creative and enigmatic visionaries of our time, The Dance of Reality is the book upon which Jodorowsky’s critically acclaimed 2013 Cannes Film Festival film of the same name was based.

The Aesthetics of Virtual Reality

The Aesthetics of Virtual Reality
Author: Grant Tavinor
Release: 2021-09-30
Editor: Routledge
Pages: 178
ISBN: 9781000452129
Language: en
Available for:

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

This is the first book to present an aesthetics of virtual reality media. It situates virtual reality media in terms of the philosophy of the arts, comparing them to more familiar media such as painting, film and photography. When philosophers have approached virtual reality, they have almost always done so through the lens of metaphysics, asking questions about the reality of virtual items and worlds, about the value of such things, and indeed, about how they may reshape our understanding of the "real" world. Grant Tavinor finds that approach to be fundamentally mistaken, and that to really account for virtual reality, we must focus on the medium and its uses, and not the hypothetical and speculative instances that are typically the focus of earlier works. He also argues that much of the cultural and metaphysical hype around virtual reality is undeserved. But this does not mean that virtual reality is illusory or uninteresting; on the contrary, it is significant for the altogether different reason that it overturns much of our understanding of how representational media can function and what we can use them to achieve. The Aesthetics of Virtual Reality will be of interest to scholars and advanced students working in aesthetics, philosophy of art, philosophy of technology, metaphysics, and game studies.

Author: Anne Rorimer

Editor: Unknown
Pages: 304
ISBN: 0500284717
Language: en
Available for:

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

By the end of the 1960s a revolution had taken place in the perception and practice of art in Europe and North America. This book, the first detailed account of developments centered around the conceptual art movement, highlights the main issues underlying visually disparate works dating from the second half of the 1960s to the end of the 1970s. These works questioned the accepted categories of painting and sculpture by embracing a wealth of alternative media and procedures. Traditional two- and three-dimensional representations were supplanted by a variety of linguistic and photographic means, as well as installations that brought into play the importance of presentation and site. Through close examination of individual works and artists, Anne Rorimer demonstrates the pervading desire to redefine the characteristics of what was once accepted as truly visual in order to dispel earlier assumptions and offer other criteria for seeing. Artists whose work is discussed in depth include Robert Ryman, Gerhard Richter, Joseph Kosuth, Lawrence Weiner, Eleanor Antin, John Baldessari, Gilbert & George, Sol LeWitt, Adrian Piper, Bruce Nauman, Vito Acconci, Marcel Broodthaers, Robert Smithson, Daniel Buren, and Michael Asher. Forerunners of the period such as Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, Andy Warhol, Frank Stella, Piero Manzoni, Joseph Beuys, Allan Kaprow, and Fluxus are also included. 303 illustrations.

Language: en
Available for:

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

An illuminating introduction to a visionary figure in the history of video art and video sculpture Published in conjunction with an exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art, Shigeko Kubota: Liquid Realitysheds new light on the multilayered practice of Shigeko Kubota (1937-2015), who broke new ground with her intrepid video sculptures combining "the energy of electrons" with raw materials like plywood, sheet metal, mirrors and the natural element of water. At the forefront of a generation of artists drawn to the nascent medium of video for its freedom from precedent, Kubota likened newly available portable video technology to a "new paintbrush." She employed early image-processing tools to create otherworldly portraits and landscapes that explored journeys both personal and artistic. Essays by curator Erica Papernik-Shimizu and scholar Gloria Sutton provide an in-depth look at a selection of Kubota's key video sculptures from the early 1970s to the mid-1980s, which pivoted from her Duchampianaseries to a foregrounding of nature as a means of examining her medium, the world, and her place in it. This richly illustrated publication further contextualizes the artist's work through her writings and drawings, as well as archival ephemera. Viewed through the lens of today's digitally interconnected world, Kubota's revelatory sculptures continue to astonish through their economy of means and poetic juxtaposition of the organic and the electronic. Shigeko Kubota(1937-2015) was a key protagonist in the Fluxus movement before her four-decade career as a video artist began in the early 1970s. She became a pioneer in the medium of video sculpture, working collaboratively to encase video monitors in volumetric forms. In doing so, she liberated video from the constraints of the "TV box" and explored nature as a metaphor for video technology. In parallel, she served as Video Curator at Anthology Film Archives between 1974 and 1983, and facilitated a critical exchange between video artists in New York and Tokyo.

Available for:

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Art Savvy is a systematic approach to understanding art. It gives you methods to assess a design and really see what the artist was doing. Unlike chaotic art writings, terms are clearly defined, categorized, organized and illustrated. It is designed to answer questions like: What things will allow me to understand art? What are the basic elements? What is concept art? Can you "read" a work of abstract art? Visual literacy is the ability to interpret, negotiate, and make meaning from information presented in art work. Art Savvy gives you this. Defining Terms: Often art terms are not clearly defined, are used interchangeably or get mixed up with other types of analysis. For a thorough exploration of all aspects of art, photos of great works are referenced with color keyed notations to illustrate the 5 easy pieces: 1. Design Elements- Visual grammar, line, shape, form, mass etc. - definitions & how to see them. 2. Organization Principles- How elements are arranged and how this effects the concept. 3. Style- Relation to other groups of work and formulas for design. 4. Technique- How methods and materials are used to impact the concept. 5. Concept- What this piece about. What major themes and elements were used. Assessment techniques in each section of Art Savvy will train your eye to always see these 5 aspects of any artwork. It is not attempting judgments of relevance, philosophy, spiritual meanings and other ethereal aspects that a work may convey. This text poses the question: "What is the basic concept here?" but sticks to pure analysis and leaves all judgment to you and the experts. This field guide is a mini textbook on design principles that will let you understand art!

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

""My painting carries within it the message of pain"." Frida Kahlo--born in 1907 near Mexico City--learned about pain at a very early age. She contracted polio at six, and then at eighteen suffered serious and permanent injury to her right leg and pelvis in a terrible bus accident. Young and undaunted, she went on to fall in love with the great mural painter Diego Rivera at a time when their native Mexico was going through a period of thrilling political and cultural upheaval. Rivera and Kahlo were a legendary couple--both were impassioned, lifelong communists while fervently attached to traditional Mexican Indian culture, and both were driven by a relentless artistic ambition that surmounted all the dramas that plagued their marriage. Later, Frida became the friend and lover of Leon Trotsky. She was greatly admired by the Surrealists and sat for some of the greatest photographers of her day. Her art largely consisted of self-portraits, like the famous paintings "The Two Fridas" and "The Broken Column," though she also left many striking still-lives. In "Frida Kahlo: Painting Her Own Reality," Christina Burrus assesses Frida Kahlo's extraordinary work--a maelstrom of cruelty, humor, candor, and insolence reflecting the essence of a free, beautiful, courageous woman who concealed her physical pain behind peals of infectious laughter.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

A look at why we are interested in what we see in art. Are we born with aesthetic preferences that are shaped by cultural influences? Is our natural attraction to Beauty another weapon in our arsenal of species' survival? This book examines many so-called rules of composition in the visual arts to find natural reasons for their existence. It is designed to aide the visual artist and those who appreciate their work by bringing attention to subtle cues of attraction cultivated by our ancient and immediate ancestors. It calls upon recent work in neuroaesthetics and other scientific disciplines to back up its speculative claims, and asks the reader to contribute opinions of their own on the books' website at naturallycomposed.com. There are many examples of photos in the book, and the reader is again asked to insert their own examples to enforce or refute the claims.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Most of us do not remember that we have volunteered to remember our multidimensional heritage and unite with our true SELF in the higher worlds. Remembering this unity would be difficult indeed with the knowledge of only one lifetime. Fortunately, as we each begin to awaken, we remember our "past lives." These "past lives" are actually all occurring at the same "time" in different space-time coordinates. Shature, the main character, is studying on the fifth dimension and acting as the Higher Self to her different, third dimensional lives. Shature does this by entering into a dome, which allows her to interface with the physical world. As she moves through these layers of multidimensional love, she discovers what she was and who she is meant to be.
