I stayed home from creative writing class to write my contemporary art essay
a.k.a I finished my essay in 4 hours and will spend the rest of the night playing DA:O
"One such example that I would cite as art is video games, with the game Dishnonored (2012)(fig 2) as my figurehead. Video games fit neatly into a Cubist/Futurist’s definition of art in that they literally exist in the fourth dimension. In Dishonored one can freely roam the city of Dunwall as an assassin during a time of political upheaval. Time and space exist and allow the viewer to experience a concept, much in the same way that we can experience the horrors of the Spanish Civil war in Picasso’s Guernica (1937)(fig 3)."
Throw me in the trash I just compared Dishonored to Guernica
I realized that I hot rock bottom today when I compared Picasso and Cubism to video games like Dishonored and how they both follow the same theory for a contemporary art history essay.
I’m getting my bachelors.
