Maxwell Blanchard A blend

Personally i feel that the first week was extremely significant in tying up the last four weeks.  In the beginning lectures we discussed a third culture, a blending of art of and science.  We delved further into the possibilities and progression of this hybrid class and what it meant for both subjects.  The past couple of weeks have really focused on undoing the personal biases and stereotypes associated with what it means to be an artist or a scientist.  Throughout the weeks we went through examples such as stelarc, etc.  However, the first week i feel was vital to understanding the other three.  Through Vesna’s “Third Culture” and C.P. Snow’s “The two cultures” we can grasp the larger concept at hand.  Week two i felt was the perfect follow up since it dealt with such a scientic art.  The idea was somewhat of a struggle at first, but Henderson’s article definitely helped.  Week three was a blatent example after another of science combined with art.  Bottom line is the emergence of this third culture and understanding it and how it can prove beneficial to society today.  Not to mention how it already has.   I felt discussing the portrayal of science and art in media was beneficial as well to the understanding the combination.

My project was basically a online user friendly platform for aspiring artists to use.  As I said before, we’ve spent a lot of time in the past couple of weeks trying to destroy past biases and stereotypes pertaining to art and science.  This conceptual site that i designed would bring a new tool to that aim.  It would also provide a means for artists to share work and criticism, as well as search for new jobs, contracts, etc.  It would be extremely similar to facebook or myspace, but with a more specific application.  It would provide a connection that seems to be a problem for artists.   To be completely honest, up until this class, i was completely unaware a third culture even existed.  I doubt many of the students in DESMA 9 were. If there were a website where people could register and enjoy the fun of facebook, with the practical application of art education, this third culture might be much more well known.   In addition, while the majority of our DESMA 9 class are “South Campus Majors,” there are plenty of artists in our class.  I doubt they were aware of this emerging class either. This just reiterates the problem.  My project would be part of the solution to this problem, as well as provide a service free to the public, that would enable artists to find gallery owners or custom contracts etc.  We’ve all heard of the “starving artist.”  This project would hopefully provide a solution to that problem as well.  Also, this site would enable artists to search for inspiration among fellow artists’ work, or even just search for groups and organizations to further whatever personal goals he or she has.  Nonetheless, the idea remains in contributing to the awareness and support of todays society of the emergin third culture.
