<< i am fascinated by clip art and other types of what could be called post
modern icons. maybe I'm way too easily amused, but to me, analysis of clip
art symbols is pretty interesting. you could think about what is needed to
represent a certain idea or thing, what is necessary and what is superfluous
to accurate communication and interpretation and why, the similarities and
differences in clip art images for the same thing, the origins of clip art
images (some of them are from "classic" artworks) can also be neat to
distort/simplify/repeat/flip them (play, in other words) and see what type of
images can be created. to me it seems there is lots of creative and learning
potential here...
I think we should remember that Dadaism says that anything is art if the
artist says so. Don't forget the urinals and the bottle stand!
