Thinking about art and how it can show us a new side

June 02, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

I love fiction, I think it can show truth in some ways better than non-fiction but tells it in a story. I am always drawn to Science fiction, fantasy, and strange stories.  So i am also drawn to sf and fantasy on tv and films.  One of the trends that I have noticed is how they can take something and make it a metaphor for life in today's world.  On True Blood, they have taken extreme religion and made it a vampire thing.  Showing that it is a scary thing in any form. Game of Thrones which I have read all the books but it's been years on some of them.  I get the dvd's from the library so I don't pay for them.  

Photography use to be it was the truth. When it was film and it wasn't easily changed.  Now everything visual is not be trusted.  This week on top of my work, I begin a photoshop class.  How to make it better and probably less real.  

I think I've figured out what my next project will be for the Interest area of my website.  I was invited to an event at the old City Cemetery today.  I didn't have anything conflicting with it, so I went.  Wow!  They have done a beautiful job of fixing up the cemetery.   It is now an officially arboretum for trees.  I walked around and read all the new plagues that they had put up about the history of the place and looked at the trees.  It was  nice thing to do for a Sunday afternoon..
