Further into the Renaissance and Mannerism

August was full of disruptions, rains, floods, and even illnesses. But hopefully, we leave all that now. As August ends, we also end our lessons in Renaissance. This time, we will explore the High Renaissance into Mannerism. The influence of the state and private individuals heighten, affecting the style and mood of the times.

High Renaissance displays an excellence and height of technique, but with obvious cool and restraint. Mannerism took on the techniques of Renaissance, but exaggerated and contorted it. The social, religious and political upheavals are just beginning here. The twists and turns of the bodies reflects the twists and turns of artistic developments.

Here are the links to the lectures:

High Renaissance

Mannerism

The School of Athens by Raphael

Bacchus and Ariadne, Titian

An Allegory with Venus and Cupid, Agnolo Bronzino

The Rape of the Sabines, Giambologna

The Madonna of the Long Neck, Girolamo Francesco

The Burial of Count Orgaz, from a Legend of 1323, El Greco

Water, Giuseppe Arcimboldo

And look, indeed, it is. Courage and begin the work!

Lunch is served. Tofu and broccoli stir-fry. #homecooking #seoul #korea This is what happens when you combine nerds from the art and science, then forgeting to take a photo, with Harshit leaving tomorrow. I haven't laughed like that in a really long time. And the AI immediately recognized Harshit from Mischa's phone. This was just really funny. #art #science #seoul #korea Also looking forward to Mischa's project, the concept of the feedback loop as a conversation is something I am still trying to grasp. #art #science #technology #seoul #korea This is what happened when Tandem was done with its part. Again, the concept is to augment human creativity. The project is about a month old, and I can't wait to see how this project will evolve in the future. #art #science #technology #seoul #korea I tried Tandem myself, choosing the dreamy mood out of 6 moods, and the abstract style instead of figurativr. Here the AI is doing its part in the creation. #art #science #seoul #korea To continue on the Big Bang Theory saga was Mischa Daams. He looks for the soul in screen technology, creating a feedback loop between the camera lens and the screen. Again, a little lost under the hood here. But he sees the imperfections in the loops as the conversation within the machine. He looks toward developing a machine that will be able to learn and sustain itself. I look forward to the opening of his show on September 6. #art #science #technology #seoul #korea
