Ways of seeing

Back again after a long hiatus.  There is one reason I haven’t been posting, and its name is Fallout 3.  Goddamn is that game addictive.  It takes up my time that I’d normally be writing posts or even finding the stuff that I do post.

Here is a short little BBC series from the 70s that I just finished watching called “Ways of Seeing”.  The show is an introduction to how we see images/art, and how our modern way of viewing – from reproductions to video images – drastically alters our perspective on art.  It is always good to be aware of how, exactly, one’s environment changes one’s viewpoint.  I hardly agree with everything that is said, but I found it eye-opening nonetheless.

Episode 1 – Introduction [1, 2, 3, 4]

Episode 2 – Female nude [1, 2, 3, 4]

Episode 3 – Oil painting [1, 2, 3, 4]

Episode 4 – Advertising [1, 2, 3, 4]
