The Future of Art in a Digital Age: From Hellenistic to Hebraic Consciousness

Capa
Intellect Books, 2006 - 187 páginas

This work develops the thesis that the transition from pre-modernism to postmodernism in art of the digital age represents a paradigm shift from the Hellenistic to the Hebraic roots of Western culture.

Semiotic and morphological analysis of art and visual culture demonstrate the contemporary confluence between the deep structure of Hebraic consciousness and new directions in art that arise along the interface between scientific inquiry, digital technologies, and multicultural expressions.

Complementing these two analytic methodologies, alternative methodologies of kabbalah and halakhah provide postmodern methods for extending into digital age art forms. Exemplary artworks are described in the text and illustrated with photographs.

Página 11 - May the same wonder-working Deity, who long since delivering the Hebrews from their Egyptian oppressors planted them in the promised land— whose providential agency has lately been conspicuous in establishing these United States as an independent nation— still continue to water them with the dews of Heaven and to make the inhabitants of every denomination participate in the temporal and spiritual blessings of that people whose God is Jehovah.
Página 15 - Go forth from your native land and from your father's house to the land that I will show you.
