Art History Concept

I wanted to share these videos from the BBC — The theory that they share really made a lot of sense to me… When I was in art history class and they showed early art and how it was more “messy” looking (my technical term there – hahaha) but then suddenly you see artists “figuring out” the use of perspective and the vanishing lines and all the stuff that suddenly made their art more photo realistic… It’s never seemed to feel right that “suddenly” artist just became “better” – as if it was some evolutionary jump… Anyway the theories that are posed in these videos seem to make a lot of sense and bridge that gap.

It was really cool to think about the adaptation of art… the development of new ideas, technology and the use of it to be a “tool” to a new level of creativity… and as this new creativity blossoms it uses what came before …builds upon the content of earlier ideas till it becomes not just a tool, but a building block — So that it becomes an independent art form… creating tools to advance that new art form till it branches off like a tree creating the next new line of art forms — but always built upon the earlier foundations of creativity.

Here are the links to the videos if you would like to watch them:
