#End of #Week7 in the #ArtStudio – #KorbIsMissing!

Today I am in MADISON, WI celebrating the statewide accomplishments of of our young artists. Congratulations to all the kids as they have their work being exhibited in the state capitol rotunda. I look forward to seeing the strong works, the individual artists, the parents and families of the kids who are there, and being able to talk to everyone about the works they are experiencing.



“Time is an Essential Element in All Media. Time reveals itself in two critical ways: the unfolding of the form and the experience of the viewer. Real-time duration implies a narrative structure or linear path, even if abstract, and delivers information and experience in measured units (film, performance, and video). In those cases, the viewer becomes a passive receiver. Recorded media, video, film, L.E.D. word displays, and computer simulations allow for the manipulation of time and the creation of temporal illusion. Time is a dimension.” 10 Kit White 101 Things to Learn in Art School Kit White © 2011 Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Kit White
