    i want a pony
    but seriously, why a tiny equestrian would be nice, i wouldn't mind seeing some "serious" critcism of work. not limited to what we create, but also art "out there," whether designs by the 1337 ad agencies of new york, or some postmodern pieces.
    i'd like to see what the serious critics - the deconstructionists, the marxists, the semioticians, etc - have to say about the beautiful and paradign shifting iconclastic paintings and designs of the serious art world.
    i know some of us have taken art history classes, modern art seminars, and read the hip art journals. art is about mind and logos as well as feeling and aesthetic inclination, and i'd like to see some serious discourse on the two modes of thought towards all manners of art.
    i know that this type of discussion has been well represented in the idiom of film; we've got lots of movie snobs . but where are our art snobs?
    i'll try to get the discourse started soon.

    Less cable and silver screen discussion and more diverse topics: Painting, Sculpture, Dance, Performance Art...
    Visual and Performing arts covers soo much outside of the digital and cable broadcast domains.
    Wouldn't it be nice to venture into human expression that isn't a part or a reflection of the greater consumer culture?

    Believe me. Such things are at the top of my list as well. I would LOVE this forum to grow into a community that reflects the total diversity of Bluelight.
    Just wait until we switch from UBB to VB. The change will bring about a whole slew of new options that we can use to make VPA one helluva great forum.
    Adios,
    Steve

    Ok, here we go,
    What about the head of the Turner Art Prize saying most of the applicants was just 'conceptual bullshit'.
    Cant say I really got into the winning entry this year, and I can say I got into some of the previous conceptuial bullshit, yknow the one where you walked into a room and a light switches on, I thought that was real funny.
    granted some conceptual art is pretty lame, but some can be an absolute blast.
    thoughts?

    if you want something done, do it yourself
    so if you want a serious discussion started, why not start it?

    true that...and yes i know i dont contribute any art YET, but im always up for a little deconstruction.

    deconstruction = justsomeguy frontin' his intellect with a learned practice
    I would like to see some honest and forthright critiqing too, but I've decided that some of you all are honestly not up for it.
    I've seen a few "I concede that it is not good, but that was my intention" kind of replies to constructive criticism so far.
    I think that some of our egos are a bit too fragile

    maybe a discussion topic of the month...
    however it can be hammered out to fit
    perhaps a piece choosen by each mod (not their own) to subject to critique...
    or have a general art topic such as a movement, era, or medium where readers can post images, their thoughts on the overall package, likes and dislikes, and so on
    that way everyone can learn a little bit about the history, art terms, theory (for example bauhaus or deconstruction)

    something tells me that we're at risk of having more discussion generated about what we should discuss, instead of the discussion about something else entirely. like this thread, for example.
