Unformatted text preview: Cindy Sherman Cindy Sherman began her exploration of art at the State University College at Buffalo. After Sherman graduated, she began taking photographs of herself dressed in the role of B-movie actresses. One of her best-known series of works, “Complete Untitled Film Stills" was composed of 69 photographs of herself dressed up in characters that challenged cultural stereotypes and the female gender role. The following quote is Sherman’s description ofher work: “The work is what it is and hepefully it’s seen as feminist work, or feminist-advised work, but I’m not going to go around espousing theoretical bullshit about feminist stuf Golan Levin Golan Levin creates visual 8; audio masterpieces through customized software and engineering. He creates unique artifacts and experiences with other collaborators at Carnegie Mellon University where he teaches. His art is truly an experience to be enjoyed and awed over by the viewer. At the entrance to the Pittsburgh Museum of art, his “Double-Taker [Snout)" greets every visitor and follows there every move with its motion sensor robotic eye. Another creation Levin made with a fellow collaborator is the interactive bar table. The table acts as a “virtual terrarium”, and when touched reacts with the movement of glowing digital organisms. Levin’s work expands the concept of art into a much broader interactive experience and propels “art itself” forward, parallel to the technologically based culture today. Vik Muniz Vik Muniz has an unparalleled collection of art ranging from his early sculptures to paintings to photographs to chocolate syrup masterpieces. Muniz began with his “Best of Life" series in which he drew photographs from memory that he had seen in the magazine Life. To give more reality to his memories, he then photographed the drawings. Later Muniz began to incorporate strange miscellaneous objects into his photographs including dust, diamonds, sugar, ketchup, caviar and wire. in 1997 Muniz became well known for his "Pictures of Chocolate” series, in which he created his portraits with chocolate syrup. In 2006, he created the series “Pictures of junk”, which was later transformed into the documentary directed by Lucy Walker, Waste Land. The pieces from this series were based off of mythology hut included different mediums [junk]. Muniz used scale to cause people to distance themselves from the piece to be able to understand and see what the piece actually was. The most interesting thing about his work is that he physically went to the junkyard and from a birds eye view moved everything around to create the image within. 55074, HAKWG ~ T‘svemwawc, seminar. 1; Fifi/Dime, . .

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
