Notes from VCA lecture 13/08/96

Posted on September 12, 2008 at 10:53 AM
Images become nature - constructed cultural activity becomes natural.
How does the artist function within this?
Text has become novel - images are now more prevalent... functioning in a suggestive, emotive and seductive manner.
'coloured light echoing illusions' (television)
How has the image been constructed?
The postmodern photographer (artist) is a manipulator of signs, rather than a producer of art objects.
The viewer becomes an active decoder of images.
Analogy of painting to cosmetics - painting conceals the image it tries to reveal.
