Assignment 2

I wanted make the crazy picture moving like crazy, unexpected, and nutty. Like a Pinball Machine. I am flashy and noisy just like a pinball machine, but one mistake and its game over, or one mistake then jackpot! So when it comes to pinball machines you just play and forget the consequences. That's what the internet is, big and flashy but then dissapointing at the same time. So just accept the big mess of information and make the best of it.

Walter Benjamin Question

1.  Benjamin speaks of the advancement of art technology, changes our perception of art.
Is this one of the reasons why so many people don't recognize digital art as art?
Is it due to having hands on work with the substrate,  rather than having a program and a mouse?

2."We define the aura of the latter as the unique phenomenon of a distance, however close it may be." Walter Benjamin The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction (1936).
Does he speak of how the artist puts his/her soul in to the artwork so that it cannot be copied or make it unique?

Kaos in Internet

I call this Kaos in Internet
There is so much information on the internet aswell communities that have their own meanings.
My piece just shows a small portion of the internet community and how it has grown to it's own.
I also notice apon working on this peice how the negative space  played such a large part to this art work. The negative space would make it's own shape no longer being negative space.
