Interact with Art: Conclusions
ONLINE ONLY: INTERACT WITH ART SERIES—
Conclusions from reviewing forty virtual artists’ works, two very different viewpoints contrast. Published by Eleanor Medier.
• “The Search for More” defines the evolved criteria upon which they review the art.
• “Represent and Review” describes conclusions about the art and recognition of the medium.
• “Collaborative Continuum” conveys a more personal point-of-view on being an art critic.
• “Evaluate the Visual” explores the presentation interlinking these topics.
• Facebook adds dimension and interaction.
Because the discussion is ONLY about the work itself, and not the biographies, interviews, or published intensions of the artist, how the visual language is most effective becomes clear.
The interactive medium is used as a role play between Eleanor Medier (The Aesthete) who is really Liane Sebastian in Chicago, and Heavy Writer (The Amateur) who is really Daniel Popescu in Bucharest.
They debate considerations that can be applied to viewing all art. They represent the virtual world culture which is a true international mix.
To read the full series in sequence means to also enjoy the fiction by Heavy Writer that portrays issues of practicality, reflections of the real world, and hard decisions. The two characters can push extreme viewss—she as an art-addicted ivory-tower fanatic, and he as a truck-driver with little exposure but lots of reactions—bringing a simulated realism to the questions in discussion. They share with the reader many considerations that might be thought but not spoken.
