As Charles Lindbergh recognized, when he met Jung in 1959, Jung wasa genius, one of the stellar figures of the 20th century, whose reputation is likely to be burnished as we move into the future.[2] But for all his genius, Jung was still a human being, and a fairly flawed one at that. Jung could have been speaking of himself when he wrote

Beauty | Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy || “Beauty is nature’s way of acting at a distance.”

Beauty | Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy || “Beauty is nature’s way of acting at a distance.” | Film, Art, Design, Transmedia, Culture and Education | Scoop.it

"Beauty is no quality in things themselves: It exists merely in the mind which contemplates them; and each mind perceives a different beauty. One person may even perceive deformity, where another is sensible of beauty; and every individual ought to acquiesce in his own sentiment, without pretending to regulate those of others." -- David Hume

 

"Beauty is pleasure regarded as the quality of a thing. … Beauty is a value, that is, it is not a perception of a matter of fact or of a relation: it is an emotion, an affection of our volitional and appreciative nature. An object cannot be beautiful if it can give pleasure to nobody: a beauty to which all men were forever indifferent is a contradiction in terms. … Beauty is therefore a positive value that is intrinsic; it is a pleasure." -- Santayana (1896)

 

"The nature of beauty is one of the most enduring and controversial themes in Western philosophy, and is—with the nature of art—one of the two fundamental issues in philosophical aesthetics. Beauty has traditionally been counted among the ultimate values, with goodness, truth, and justice. It is a primary theme among ancient Greek, Hellenistic, and medieval philosophers, and was central to 18th and 19th-century thought, as represented in treatments by such thinkers as Shaftesbury, Hutcheson, Hume, Burke, Kant; Hegel, Schopenhauer, Hanslick, and Santayana. By the beginning of the twentieth century, beauty was in decline as a subject of philosophical inquiry, and also as a primary goal of the arts. However, the last decade has seen a revival of interest in the subject.

 

This article will begin with a sketch of the debate over whether beauty is objective or subjective, which is perhaps the single most-prosecuted disagreement in the literature. It will proceed to set out some of the major approaches to or theories of beauty developed within Western philosophical and artistic traditions."

Off the street: art for all? - Blog - ABC Arts

Off the street: art for all? - Blog - ABC Arts | Film, Art, Design, Transmedia, Culture and Education | Scoop.it
Adrian Doyle, artist and co-founder of Melbourne Street Art Tours, reckons Melbourne is the best place in the world to see street art. Facter, also a Melbourne-based street artist and editor of webzine Invurt, agrees: “I do believe that there is absolutely no doubt in anyone’s mind, globally, of those who follows street art, that Melbourne is one of the very top destinations, anywhere – it’s not just valid, it is fact,”

Early this year, Christa Larwood, writing for BBC travel, claimed that Melbourne has emerged as an unlikely leader in urban art, and is now compared with Berlin, New York and Sao Paolo, attracting “urban art A-listers like Blek le Rat (the Parisian “godfather of the stencil”) and Banksy.”

Melbourne’s street art is marketed as a tourist attraction, a must-see for Lonely Planet backpackers. But not everyone is enamoured with street art. For many, there is little difference between graffiti (tagging) and street art of value.

Last month, anti-graffiti laws were back on the State Government agenda in New South Wales were graffiti removal costs the state more than $100 million a year. In Melbourne the clean-up bill also runs into the millions. Lord Mayor Robert Doyle told the ABC’s Jon Faine “I celebrate street art; the destructive mindless vandalism of tagging I can't stand.”

While some bemoan the rise of street art in our urban spaces, others see an opportunity to nurture and give back to their community.

Hurben is a 35-year-old street artist from Perth, who made the transition from tagging to street art to public commissions and gallery exhibitions.

“I guess I questioned why I was doing it,” he says as explanation for why he turned away from graffiti.

“I wanted to actually do something good with my art and create change and add to the culture. Not take away.”

Another Perth local Michael (mike) Shime has been making art on the street since the ‘80s. He is adamant that street art can nurture a sense of community, but acknowledges it will not always appeal to everyone.

“In my experience, street art definitely has a place in nurturing the community, but it can equally alienate them.”

“Young people today need to be able to voice themselves and many choose to use graffiti as a means of doing this,” he says.

“Most street artists are young people. Political and social issues have a large impact in their life and generally they are not in positions of power to enforce change on governmental levels. So they make and create awareness of political and social issues where they can. And more often than not, that is on the street with their art.”

Some will argue there are more appropriate ways to build a community or voice societal concerns than street art, but as National Gallery of Australia curator Jaklyn Babington points out: “throughout art history, artists have often created and displayed their works in public spaces and numerous art historical movements have had a political and/or socially motivating element to them. Street art is no different, it is just perhaps more proactive and determined than other forms of contemporary art today in its strategies and efforts to reach the widest possible audience.”

Peter Drew, a young Adelaide-based artist, considers street art a vital part of the city because it “marks the point of conflict between two great principles of western democracy, the freedom of expression and the sanctity of private property.”

He suggests community can form when there is a collective sense of ownership over a public space. The popularity of Melbourne’s CBD street art or the Condor Tower Carpark Project in Perth (which attracted around 3000 visitors on opening night in July 2009) can attest to this.

Fiona Hillary, the founding coordinator of the City of Melbourne’s youth arts project Signal Youth Arts Studio and an researcher with RMIT’s Art in Public Space program, says street art can be a great vehicle to engage community and usher change; especially in terms of regeneration projects.

“A great example was a project that occurred a few years ago in Dandenong when Grenda's Bus Depot was being relocated and the old site being demolished. The City of Greater Dandenong commissioned a number of artists to engage with the space and provide the local community with a different view of the site, and to an extent farewell the space.”

What do you think? Can street art bring communities together?

Curation Is As Important as Creation

Curation Is As Important as Creation | Film, Art, Design, Transmedia, Culture and Education | Scoop.it

Robin Good: If you are interested in understanding how "content curation" differentiates itself from simple re-sharing and re-blogging here is a great article by Chris DeLine.

 

Great advice for anyone wanting to become an effective content curator: “Whether in tweets, in blog posts, in podcasts, or in newsletters, be ruthless with your attention.


...

 

Some adopt a strategy of blanket-curation, throwing everything new or fresh or remotely interesting online and letting other consumers make their own value distinctions.

 

Others assume the role of tastemaker, selectively making the decisions themselves.

 

Both have their place, but the former contributes to what Jonathan Haidt calls “the paradox of abundance,” which he says “undermines the quality of our engagement.”

How many content-overload websites can you monitor before you become overwhelmed by volume? How many share-explosions does it take before you remove a friend from your Facebook feed? How many Tumblr pages can you pay attention to before the reblogs become a blur?

 

...

Thoughtful, honest, and caring curation isn’t entirely different than creation.

 

After all, the topics you choose to research, to blog about, and to discuss with friends all begin with the process of sifting through the media abyss yourself and singling out worthwhile information."

 

What really counts is to create content that is useful, meaningful and helpful for others, whether from direct hand authorship, or by curating the best existing resources.

 

Insightful. 8/10

As part of the BBC’s debate into the long term future of broadcasting it pitted SHV against 3D during the Olympics – and guess which won?

 

The BBC’s internal debate about the future of broadcasting live events appears to be settling on a vision of 8K – or sixteen times the resolution of current HD – rather than 3D. The latest high profile figure to comment on the merits of the two immersive visual systems is BBC Director of Sport Barbara Slater who supervised the 3D broadcasts and Super Hi-Vision experiments in London of the Olympic Games.
