SILVER LIGHT RIG – DIGITAL DESIGNS realize Visual Studies and Visual Culture are similar. They both aim to provide an interdisciplinary platform for students. These students are interested in becoming scientists, anthropologists, sociologists or whatever. Visual observation is crucial to knowledge in science, artistic expression and in almost every other field.
Students arrive at the universities with a technical capacity in imaging. They are able to produce and view enormous quantities of images. This is due to the predominance of the electronic media and it’s steady growth. The newest methods of digital technology make programs and systems easier to use. Nearly everyone seems to enjoy visual literacy. That has produced a sophistication that is unprecedented in all of art history.
Machine vision assists in the interpretation of images from cameras and sensors. A common visual language enables visual perception and produces visible images.
Visual perception explores the metanarrative of what has been done, what is being done at present and what is expected to be done in the future. Then, it continues to explore what is happening in neurobiology. It forecasts scientific revelations and expectations for the knowledge seeking visual brain. “True Yesterday, True Today, True Tomorrow!” that is my definition of a Classic spoken by the writer of EVERYBODY COMES TO RICK’S by MURRAY BURNETT, the inspiration for the great film CASABLANCA. Metanarrative is the highest truth in Russian philosophy. The grand narrative spoken in John 6:47: “I tell you the truth, he who believes has everlasting life.” NIV
Fine Art ranges between contextual statements and l’art pour l’art or art for art’s sake – that fine art does not need to serve a purpose. Most college students lean toward contextualism. The knowledge seeking brain has a voracious appetite for knowledge. There appears to be an underlying layer of principles already in place that may serve as a conscience seeking truth. Today, neurobiology science is interviewing artists to learn about the artist’s ability to transmit knowledge in an instant.
Leonardo da Vinci ranked the arts in his Paragon of the Arts. He concluded that sculptures and paintings were superior because of their ability to instantly deliver a statement or beauty. Music and the literary arts took time to experience their artful expressions.
Communications of our time are dependent upon the speed of light. A forecast in the future may include instant communications – similar to prayer. Instant travel may be a subject of the future.
