Are Meme’s Art? ….. Base on the video of Are LOLCats and Internet Memes Art? Idea Channel PBS Digital Studios
This is from the movie THIS IS END where Six Los Angeles celebrities are stuck in James Franco’s house after a series of devastating events just destroyed the city. Inside, the group not only have to face the apocalypse, but themselves. This is the scene I thought of when we was ask about memes being art. James Franco shows Seth Rogan and Jay Baruchel a painting of James Franco name and Seth Rogan name side by side each other. Jay Baruchel said he is not into art. James Franco responds telling him everything that is art in a (what I think is funny way) James Franco way.
Actually I think the better question is what’s not art?
Thinking about this question mostly everything we see art, weather that’s outfits we wear or eating food, most of the time if the food we eat looks good like commercials we at least try because it looks good, even looking at buildings we walk into everyday its all art.
Ultimately art is good because it makes life worth living. For example in the picture below to actually go see nature like this in real time would be amazing. I think it would take some effort to get in the exact spot which would be struggle meaning the movement the money etc and the payoff would be seeing this taking it all in. Art.
I think art is great for commutation as well because like I said in a recent post about commutation, things can be look at in different ways. So the challenge to talk or express what you are trying to say would be fun using art. For example when talking to anyone whether it’s an interview or anyone you like you don’t want the conversation to be boring. If it is then most likely the conversation is not going to last long and you won’t get the job or the person you like to like you back because of a lack of fun, creativity, or art. So showing art will only make life better because you would be force to be better at it so you can get the things you want in life due to art.
Memes are not just self expression I think because it can be use for other things like politics.
I will never forget I was about 10 or 11 years old and I saw this picture in the newspaper and I thought this guy was great and helpful to the people of America. Little did I know this is someones uncle sam that is collecting money from everyone to call help with things in America. I have different views on it now but memes can be used in different ways not just self expression even when you go on Imgur or giphy there are different category of memes for different things.
