Artist:

Marcel Duchamp

Inputs:

This work of art was innovative for its time, and interestingly it is similar to the innovative digital art of this time.  A blend of art and science.  The Large Glass is just that glass infused with oil, varnish, lead foil, lead wire, and dust new art on new medium with new materials.  It was not something to just look at it was something to look through.  And with that it was apart form the art of its time.  It was not just put together, it was carefully thought out with pages of content of purpose, thought, process, and explanation.  The artist called it hilarious in content depicting a bride with nine suitors and the process to be her groom did depict the blue blood courtship process of this time.  I think of it as a modern day diagram, a process that builds relationships either by art or by human creation.

 

Title:

“Triptychs” (spatial, Relational, Nonlinearity)

Artist:

Francis Bacon

Inputs:

I never thought of a triptych as being interactive or as multimedia, even though the canvas is placed onto three canvases.  Upon viewing triptychs from other “simpler” artists, I always viewed the art as a two dimensional continuation from one canvas to the next.  Maybe from being in this class and seeing the Francis Beacon images, the triptych, clearly expands in time as in a movie.  Each panel is a scene.  Connecting the panels is up to the viewer.  Time can be measured from nanoseconds towards sometime in the future.  I guess as long as the subject is the same, or that there is a continuing thread of information the panels can spread across eternity.

Artist:

Bosch

Inputs:

This triptych painting by Hieronymus Bosch was done between 1490-1510.  It depicts the evolution of life from the known beginnings of either evolution, or by Adam and Eve with God.  A phantasmal view of sustaining live in the first panel derails into the second and third panels of bountiful pleasures that result in all forms of chaos and debauchery.  Interestingly, noted are the vignettes of moments that are somehow separate but linked to each panels theme.  This painting is truly a blend of fantasy through the foreseer’s interpretation on the cycle of life over time. 

Title:

“Mulholland Drive” (Temporal, Nonlinearity)

Link:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mulholland_Drive_(film)

Director:

David Lynch

Inputs:

An interesting note about this Movie’s title is that I used to live not too far from the western entrance to Mulholland Drive in Los Angeles.  I would often take the Mulholland drive from Tarzana in the valley, past Beverly Hills, towards Griffin Park onwards to West Hollywood.  The views from the road are beautiful just like depicted with the actress playing Rita on her way to the accident.  Then her walk down the hill into Hollywood.  The movie was so real, but overdone with an exaggerated view; the disjointed segments left the view wondering.  Being familiar with David Lynch’s Twin Peaks series and Movies, I knew that an artistic point of view was at play, but I was not sure what it was until the end of the movie.  Artistically we have the viewpoint in the dream perspective of how one has been wronged, and how one goes through life facing these wrongs.  Acceptance is a result of how we deal with these life factors.  In this case it is revenge and the movie takes as through the actress’s point of view of the situation, the wronging, the revenge, and then the outcome.  But not in this timeline and that is what makes the movie so fascinating, from the dream perspective to the perspective in reality.  This truly has become one of my favorite best films and look forward to watching it again.
