As an artist, I often spend time observing the visual world around me. This speculation creates a connection between myself and the events at hand. I desire the ability to capture what I see and feel. I want to share this brief glimpse into my exprince with others.

As people observe my art, I want them to understand the emotion of my subject, even without the accompaniment of words. As a result, I discovered that photography was my ultimate outlet.

Research Paper 10

Technology has made the world a smaller place; in the age of technology, anything is possible. The ability to see the world or gather information used to take days if not, years. Yet, in today’s high-tech world, it no longer takes days but rather, seconds. In the reading, Alone Together: Why We Expect More from Technology by Sherry Turkle's, Turkle expresses that technology, even in its infancy has impacted our day to day life in a big way

Research Paper 9

I know you're out there. I can feel you now. I know that you're afraid. You're afraid of us. You're afraid of change. I don't know the future. I didn't come here to tell you how this is going to end. I came here to tell you how it's going to begin. I'm going to hang up this phone, and then I'm going to show these people what you don't want them to see. I'm going to show them the world without you, the world without rules and controls, without borders or boundaries, the world where anything is possible. Where we go from there, is a choice I leave to you.” Neo, The Matrix 1999.

Research Paper 8

"Good artists copy, great artists steal," Pablo Picasso. This was the opening statement in Professor Sam Perry’s lecture on the Influences of Digital Media on Traditional Art. Professor Perry's opening remarks were meant to express his opinion on how without technology, the art world would not have evolved as far as it has today. The statement Good artists copy, great artists steal is a direct example of how artists have always worked. Artists copy from life and steal different techniques from each other in order to make the works of art that we see today.


Research Paper 7

Throughout the last 15 years, technology has changed every aspect of our lives. Technology has affected the way we learn, the way we communicate, even the way we travel. Technology has taken precedence in this ever-changing world. It seems like everywhere we look technology is consuming every aspect of our lives. This shift in technology seems to be greatly impacting the art world in a significant way....

Research Paper 6

We live in a world that is rapidly losing the ability to connect socially. We no longer have face to face conversations, or sit together at dinner time to talk about the events that occurred throughout our day. Every day, more and more people find themselves only communicating through digital devices and social media therefore replacing the basic need to connect and spend real, true quality time with one another. This loss of connection has led me into the issue of abandonment- not the physical abandonment of an object or a person, but rather, the lingering feeling of a severed connection. A lack of real, and true communication. Often time, people listen to reply, not listen to understand...

Research Paper 5

In today’s world, we are always surrounded by imagery. Yet, we never think about what these visual images mean to us. This is portrayed to be a very complex, and abstract manner of thinking; one that Roland Barthes and Sally Mann both contributed opinions to. They each have a very distinct way of looking at this abstract idea. Roland's approach is that each image is just a shell of the event that has occurred; a non-repeating visual of the true event. Sally's approach is different in that it she views each image and their subjects as a story; she portrays the visual images as a depiction of the true event as it was captured.....

Research Paper 4

Ever since the beginning of time, man has had an obsession with memory and recordkeeping. This fixation to catalog the world around us can be traced as far back as 40,000 years ago. Live Science published an article with this description: “Archaeologists may have discovered Earth's oldest known cave art. Dating back to around 40,000 years ago, paintings in Indonesian caves of human hands and pig- deer may be the oldest ever found — or, at the very least, comparable in age to cave art in Europe...”

Research Paper 2

In our critical theory class, we studied the importance of art history, literature, culture, etc.; yet, this was not the most important lesson that we learned. The most important lesson was to ask the question why. Why did a painter paint? Why did the painters stop painting traditional paintings?...

Research Paper 1

The line of sexism in the arts has been forever painted into our art history. Yet, this was not done by a painting or sculpture. This was made possible by two talented and acclaimed art historians by the names of Linda Nochlin and Griselda Pollock. These feminist art historians each pioneered their way into art history with a stroke of their pen...

Photography and photographers are shaping the way people see and understand the world. It is through their imagery and contexts which this powerful media has influenced the way people think and act. This study is about exploring the social science behind the way society views and responds to photography. It also challenges the idea that as technology and communication changes, so does the way cultures receive and process the information....
