The composer can be trying to convey a positive or negative message with the song and the audience can grasp the complete opposite. In the essay "Against Interpretation", I agree with Sontag in that many interpretations are a simple statement that take away the deep meaning it originally had. Sontag makes a strong argument that with time, the interpretation has changed immensely over time. She mentions how nowadays, people take interpretation too literal but not as serious. She believes that when it comes to someone 's work or art, many do not take the original message as serious as it is meant to be.
There is a collective consciousness and unconsciousness in our minds that is a symbolic expression of numinous (Neumann). In every piece of art, it is basically the same story but expressed in a different way, hence there are archetypes in art. Through the arts, you can see that religion plays a role, as there is always a higher being or divinity that the art is trying to express. There are also many different stylistic elements of art that
Self-examination brings you closer to know yourself which in turn helps you understand other people. Examine yourself and realize you don’t have to give something up to gain something new. A person can learn from others just as well without experiencing something themselves as long as they aspire to be a better person. Just being open while listening to new ideas can foster so much personal thought. In the excerpt The Examined Life, Cornel West makes the statement “there’s no transformation without death” (13).
I believe the artist’s work allowed for an audience like myself to be able to separate the two. I don’t believe everyone has the ability to separate their own beliefs from common belief. Commonly, people may find it disrespectful for stepping on the flag. Call me selfish or whatever you may see fit, but I value my voice and opinion more than I value a piece of fabric. I think a work of art this controversial is always a great way to learn and understand how people perceive and understand things differently in the world - whether it’s politics, beliefs, or something as small as a flag on the
It brings us down a lot emotionally and mentally, even though we really shouldn 't care this much. But the sad truth is that we value others opinions of us more than what we think of ourselves. In the quote Feynman says that we don 't really have to live up to all these expectations that people, and society as a whole have laid out for us, which is something I really agree with. Confidence to me is being comfortable in being yourself. Not a lot of people are these days and it 's really sad, but it also makes a lot of sense.
Sometimes good art is praised, and sometimes bad art is admired just as much. A lot of people can’t really tell what they like in art, so they just assume if it gets good reviews it is probably reputable. Yet one of the art pieces would appear satisfying on the wall behind the Satin sofas. The purpose of art is to lift the spirit, pop out the vibrancy, extending the horizons, and fire the mind. Throughout history the greatest art has done this so successfully that it still demands complete attention.
So in my essay, I want to discuss how conflicting knowledge claims involve a difference in perspective according to arts and ethics. Art is the area of knowledge where people will always have difference in perspective. It is interesting area where person has so much freedom of expressing himself. Artist does not have so many strict limits for showing his inner world, because of that person shows it in the way he wants. Artists as all other people see the world from the different angles, and when artist shows his thoughts, global problems which worries him, his emotions or feelings, he shows it in the way he interpreters and feels the world.
I tried and tried, but my emotions refused to go away, and after a long time of suffering, I realized that I had been completely wrong about emotions because they aren't irrational at all. Emotions are what makes life worth living and they can be a tremendous asset if you use them right. If you stop fighting
According to Gaskins (2010), art reflects what we feel, think, practice, believe, or imagine. Many people also say that doing art is also a way to relax ourselves and it also help to keep our mind away from something bothering us. Love is not an uncommon topic in art and it’s undoubtedly the most wide-spread theme in the field of art. Many of us express our love through arts, songs, novels and etc. We portray love in our own way as what we feel about love is unique and the way we respond to it is different.
One way that it can relieve stress is by giving someone the ability to create anything they want. Art can give the freedom to make and create whatever anyone wants. Over time many people could express their emotions through the art they create. As people grow so do their emotions and skill level. Many may be apprehensive because of their skill level or they person not being an “art type”, however they still have a need to relieve stress and even if they do not like art they could still use this technique.
