Indeed, some see it not as a separate movement, but simply as a continuation of the modernist struggle. There has been a constant struggle in the society for establishing the belief that the coming age would be better than what we are living today .This struggle has reached it next level in the modern times .Not only because of the advent of industrial development and enlightenment (as in renaissance ) and the development in the approach of post modern thinkers but also because of the ideas of the pre modern precursors of ours that have left us with so much of knowledge and history to learn from that we can any day create for ourselves an ideal post modern state . Whereas modernism is associated with unquestionable truth, postmodernism questions power bases and emotionally manifested ideas behind what is called truth. The word “post
Nikola Tesla didn’t exactly become the most inspiring or famous inventor, but with the way he impacted modern life, he certainly seems like he should be the one to do it. His creations were part of the movement to change the lives of many around the world. Tesla even theorized and created the form of electric transmission, which beat that of Thomas Edison and still remains the world’s choice. All said, Nikola Tesla may have single-handedly changed the way we live today with his countless inventions and innovations in technology, impacting our lives with products like radio transmission and the alternating-current system. Leading to Nikola Tesla’s success as an inventor was simply how effective he was with his inventions and how effective the inventions were.
To them craft was dead. Though what is considered craft now is brought about by the Hipster Movement where they find that making stuff with your hands is trendy and engaging.. What’s more they have invented a new expression for it. They are not crafty people, they are Makers. Making it possible for anyone to be tinkerers and not having to master the skill. Impressed by such a feat, Chris Anderson boss of wired, declared the new industrial revolution as the Maker Movement.
One of the main contributing factors to how art is made is the influences of the time period it was made in. Renaissance painters such as Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci drew their inspiration mostly from creativity and art before them, creating brighter and more influential art, while more controversial artists such as Adolf Hitler and Francisco Goya y Lucientes drew greater inspiration from war times, creating darker art that’s quality sometimes hid behind their personas. Meanwhile, challenging contemporary art, such as Andres Serrano’s Piss Christ, shows the freedom of expression gained over the years, despite its critical backlash. When people normally think of the art style of the Nazi Regime, they think of the iconic use of
Modernism began arguably in the early 20th century when the industrial revolution was reaching an ever increasing height. It was a time when man searched for a new look, a new way of doing, due to being ‘enlightened’. Man had come to know what was not yet realised before. This led to an inner struggle amongst artists, designers and most dramatically influential: architects; to search for and establish a new way of doing, due to being enlightened. Man had come to know what was not yet realised before.
Txemy, a well-known artist in Barcelona, spoke on this evolution by saying, “Graffiti is a culture, a way of life, whereas street art is the evolution of that way of life to higher levels of technical and artistic ability, and thought.” And this holds true with street artist are now utilizing stencils, paste-ups of pre-painted images and other techniques/tools. These methods have allowed artists to evolve street art further while taking it to new levels. The leader of a street-art tour in Barcelona made the point of saying, “Many taggers will likely inform you that graffiti isn’t an art form as street art is.” Barcelona has served a great city to host the evolution of illegal art in public
Initially, many designers thought it was just undisciplined and self-indulgence. A collection of styles, with no unique ideals or formal vocabularies. In saying that, graphic design establishes a language with undefined grammar and an endlessly expanding vocabulary with the vague nature of its procedures meaning that it can only be studied not learnt. Yet, the final epochs of the 20th century experienced a strong pluralisation and fragmentation in graphic design. Thus, the ground-breaking rebirth of digital technology caused an entire history of styles and
Regarding the photography field, the XXI century assisted to a significant change: the overcoming of the difference between pure photographers and artists that use photography for their researches. An evolution already started at the end of 80’s, when some artists started to elaborate images of photographic mould taking a distance from the documentary approach to highlight, instead, the ability of photography of introducing conceptual thematics; thus, shifting from the representation to its interpretation. Thanks to its propriety of being an instruments apt to the conceptual mediation with the world, the use of the photographic mean allows the artists to actively participate in the rapid and constant evolution of the world. A participation
Modernism became more popular during the Industrial revolution. The end of Queen Victoria’s reign was a huge inspiration for the new movement to rise, because it symbolised the end of an era. The discoveries like Einstiens theory of spactial relativity also opened up oppurtunties for the way things worked to shift around. More people were also moving to the cities for jobs due to machinery taking over hard labour on farms in the country. The old traditions of art was also thought to be no longer the trend and was done away with to make room for new styles of fine art, architecture and literature.
Art is to be understood through the notion of accumulation rather than progress. Brunelleschi in the XIV century invented the linear perspective, to some extent we could conclude that without him we wouldn’t have had all what came after him, we wouldn’t have had Renaissance, we wouldn’t have had Expressionism neither abstractionism. Without pointillism we wouldn’t have had impressionism, and yet we don’t dare to label the process of artistic evolution as progress. Why is so? Because art before being connected is independent, art is gifted of an independent beauty which transcends the epoch it was conceived in, and it is enough to itself.
