The intricate art of TV Moore has come to Melbourne at ACCA. Moore is a multimedia artist who is based in New York. The very weird and deep artworks that Moore has created can be interpreted and looked at in many different ways. ‘Art’ is a very broad term and Moore’s artworks have often been ridiculed about not being real art.
Moore’s artwork is really amazing and it is really weird. The mixed media paintings that he has created are something to see, the primary colours of the space in which the artworks are found really compliment and add more depth to the artworks. Standing far away you might begin to understand what Moore is trying to achieve but coming towards the artwork and standing right in front of it makes you re-think and you remember that it is all abstract, it is all beautiful. There was one painting that I really loved and every time I looked at it I learnt something new about it. When I first looked at it I just saw it at a few bits of paint on a canvas in a cool room with bright blue tiles and bright red carpet, but coming closer towards it I saw that it wasn’t paint but in fact it was photographs or photo copies of paint layered on top of each other to create a sense of deep space in the artwork. There appeared to be multiple layers on the artwork and if you looked close enough you could very clearly see two eyes starring right at you. The whole collection of When cats dream of everything is very stunning and reminds me of why I absolutely love modern art. The animation part of the exhibition was very confronting and once again, very weird. I definitely recommend going to have a look at the exhibition while it is on (15 August - 27 September 2015)
Award winning film Boyhood didn't win many hearts over in our household over the weekend.
Every time something remotely suspenseful happened, like when he was checking his phone whilst driving, we were sure he was going to crash and die.
For those who love action thrillers, you'll be disappointed. This film literally tracks him from childhood, through to boyhood and then young adulthood.
It feels more like a documentary than a movie though, and it is well acted with an honest true to life progression.
A super interesting film if you can sit it out for the whole length!
Let us know if you agree!
Because I am a part of the younger generation of today’s society I am expected to learn and understand people form the past. But what we are really being taught is that dwelling on the past is the answer. Eg. Romeo and Juliet not being able to go out because of some family feud that no one can remember what started it.
I am currently doing a whole thing on Shakespeare in English and drama. But don’t get me wrong, he is a visionary and one of the most important people who ever lived but why is memorizing a whole chunk of text from midsummers night dream going to help me? I am sorry but I cannot act so Miss please, do not expect me to memorise it.
Thinking about it, we could probably learn more from One Direction than Shakespeare… One direction shows all the honourable and respectful traits and beliefs that most people should have in today's world :they support gay marriage, equality for everyone and over all I mean they are just so freaking cute!! These are people (unfortunately only 4 *insert crying emoji*) are people who we should look up too, not Shakespeare who doesn’t know how 2 use txt language/ who we can't even understand his sentences!
1D are also very inspirational, “Let’s live while we’re young” PREACH!! I am a young person who needs to learn to move forward and live and not need to recite a whole passage from Shakespeare. I mean honestly what does any of it even mean… I will leave you with this –
“If thou has slain Lysander in his sleep and you’re in blood, then to this secret keep… Kill me too! The suns not so true to the day as he to me. Tell me, he stole away? And I will believe this as soon as the whole earth may be bored and that the moon creep through that way. Speak to me of Lysander where is he? Ay, Demetrius, wilt thou give him me? Thou driv’st me past the bounds of a maidens patience. Has thou slain him never to be numbered amongst men? An awake man fends but who doth fend for men asleep? Madder. I if u say as far as you can tell. He’s not dead, yet tell me he is not well.”
So I am totally for one direction, to come take over the school and teach us about the future no the past! While they're here they can tell us that we don't know we're beautiful.
