Contrast of Dawn and Sunset #photography #poetry


behold the dawn

where the earth 

unveils color as she

dances for the warming rays

embrace the night

shadowy covering

last tendrils of color

extinguished is day

The wordpress weekly photo challenge was Saturated. When I thin of saturated I think of the way that color absorbs light.  Dawn and Sunset seemed the two times of day when color saturates our earth.

    1. I find it particularly scanifiignt that you said, the 21st Century thinker, artist or otherwise, because my goal in teaching art isn’t necessarily to produce future artists, but rather creative thinkers and problem solvers regardless of their field. If we send our students out into the world without the ability to take risks when using technology, we’re doing them a massive disservice. There’s a common fear for those unused to working with computers, or any form of technology, that I’m going to break it. To be innovative in today’s world young people can’t risk having that fear. Just as we ask students to try new things and explore possibilities with any traditional art material, we must also ask them to take risks and explore possibilities with a computer. Too often, the fine arts are presented as elitist; certain materials and techniques are snubbed. Just as Sheyda said, upon the invention of photography, artists tried for years to force it to mimic painting so the art world would accept it into the club. Today, artists who have worked without computers for years put the same pressure on the digital arts. Our students, on the other hand, don’t make this distinction, nor should we. For those who have watched the rapid development of technology over the last 3-4 decades, it makes sense to feel that life is run by technology, because the memory of life without it still exists. We have to remember, for young people today, there are no memories of life without cell phones, laptops, Facebook, blogging, etc. So life doesn’t feel saturated with technology, it feels natural. NOT using a computer seems wrong. My students are more likely to remember their homework if they set a reminder on their iPhone than if they write it down in a planner. If we ask them to create art entirely without the use of technology, we’re completely neglecting a way for them to naturally make personal connections in their work.

    1. Hey, this was a really hefplul video for me. I always struggle with colour, because I am colourblind, but art is the only thing I enjoy that I can achieve anything in, so I will have to push through it and learn to cope haha. I’ve been thinking about trying to set up an art resource place, kind of like ctrl+paint, but with a colourblind focus, because I haven’t found anything like that so far.Also, me and my mother completed the game Eat Lead recently and saw a Matt Kohr in the credits, it would be so cool if it was you, because that would be the first person I’ve recognised outside of gaming in the credits to something I’ve played :3Love the site, and thanks!
