Rhizome Analysis

Within the net art analysis i was able to discover more on the importance of technology in the art realm. Whether it allowed for easier access to images or for individual artists to come forth and make their own web pages with information describing the importance. That with every image and website a person engages in that it allows for growth of the individual on an intellectual stand point. Through each page i went to i was able to learn more on how the styles of each individual became more presents and the ability to communicate became easier through their images and what they wrote about the pieces. the art work and the individual become one as soon as it processes through the web and the availability it allows for readers to comment their own opinions. the net allows for multiple opinions on a singular piece of art work no matter the medium within a standard amount of time reaching across vast platforms.

Gifs in the Modern Era

That in all I will combine to a human form to create a self-made flying astronaut.  With surrounding objects that have been left out in space to long causing rapid decay.  A mixture of old and new, creepy yet surreal is the idea I am going for within this project. the fascination of flight and what man can accomplish, the idea that one day this may be a possibility.  The old submarine helmets would be used as a "astronaut" helmet, fighter planes for their wings, a skull affected by bone cancer, within a fish bowl to demonstrate the effects of space on a person. Also how this will come together visually, making all the machinery into this old vintage copper color, that will fit perfectly with the image of Saturn in the background. With other floating objects in the distance to create more depth in the image. Inspired by the ideas of teleportation and space development to create something we would h…
