Modern art

Post by Knight on Thu Feb 11, 2010 10:11 pm

Since I am trying to build outside of SW I decided next would be modern art. So here it is!

A group photo.


The spine.


Deforming cube.


Splatter


Conflict.


Electric rain.


Bubble glass.

Honestly, this doesn't look like art. If it was real, and not lego form then it would be very nice. But right now it just looks like a bunch of random building techniques on a plate.

It's meant to look like real modern art though, not random techniques.

Yes, I know. But when in lego form it just looks like that.

Oh, I see what you mean. Maybe if they were life size they would look more real. Razz

I never really liked modern art because it's not art. How can it be art without a message?

A painting of people doing things gives a clearer message than any of those artsy things you made.

What I mean is that they look like nothing. True art should at least look like something. A painting that shows a man riding a horse with a satchel full of scrolls tells an intriguing story: it tells you that this man is a messenger, that he is taking many messages to one location, it tells you what era he is from (the horse!), and most importantly, it leaves you with questions: you wonder what is in those messages, where they are going, what the man's name is, how fast he is going or how urgently he is traveling, etc.

This "art" has no message, and thus is not art at all.


Oh, yes, they're fine as MOCs, that was just my illustrious expose of the illusion of modern art. Wink

I like the translucent one, as well as the squiggly white one.

Thats cool, but at the scale I did these in it would be difficult to make a man riding a horse. I do see your point though. Smile

Interesting, and different. As modern art they are good, my favorite is the spine.

Just as I would say to actual art...BORING Razz! No, just kidding, these would all look
great and different if real. In LEGO though, they're strange in a good Picasso way Wink.
The Spine is my favorite.

It's okay, a show of different techniques, but I wouldn't call it art. Wink

Now now, I wasn't encouraging you to make a man riding a horse: I was telling you how very hard it is to make true art. Wink

Pretty nice, my favourite is deformed cube because of the simplistic technique which makes it good.

Actually the message behind this type of art is invoked by the feeling that the art implies.

I like the idea knight, I see you keep challenging yourself everyday. Working out the mental muscles. I like the spine mainly because I like curves and it looks very simple. Though in Lego form I don't know if it does invoke a feeling/emotion.

Nice job though.

Thanks for the feedback everyone. The concept of this was to show what modern art would look like in Lego. The Lego is not the art, it was to show how the art would look to a minifig, but still in Lego form. Smile

Would look cool if you did some sort of MOC that took place in/through a museum. The art work would be the background stuff that would add detail to the MOC.
