When we were in class last we spoke about manufacturing images and authenticity of altered images. I'm here to ask about that, does photo shop count as art? Check out the below pieces done in photo shop.
Is this art? This kind of photo shop art shows up on the internet all the time. a cosmic hilarious joke. It's something that is accepted by internet culture but it is not usually perceived as art. This is seen as a easy laugh, something one doesn't take seriously.Would you consider it art?What are your reactions to viewing this as art?
Let's move along. more photo shop.
"Anya in Triplicate"
So,more photo shop. Are these pictures Art? Because these photos have been tampered with and created to look a certain way does it loose its authenticity? Does it loose its right to be called "art" because it was manipulated, not by hand, but by machine?
I personally think that these photos show an intentional dialogue that is revealed through the juxtaposition of the characters in different poses.So then is the definition of art tied in with subject matter?
Why is this maybe art but bear-shark-octopus isn't? If you don't see this as art why does it fail to be art for you?
moving on further:
is this art? this is a picture of a scene created in photo shop all of the images in the scene happened in the same place but over an extended period of time and then have been photo shopped together to create this impossible but beautiful picture. Is it authentic? Is it art? If it is art why does this qualify as art and the first and or second examples of photo shopped art do not count? If this doesn't count as Art why not?
Of these four photo shopped images one is from a famous artist, one is from a friend of mine, and one i found while surfing the web. Does knowing which one is which determine how we perceive the image? Does the attachment of fame or its absence affect how we define art?
