"the rock represents the artist's stoicism - in a world where so much is transient and changing, the artist communicates how he and his artistic commitment remain immutable. In a sense, the piece is incredibly reassuring to the onlooker - though so much in life is ephemeral and lacking in permanence, the artist reassures us that the desire to create beauty for beauty's sake remains unchanging, almost 'like a rock'. The spotlight only serves to emphasise the singularity and importance of the statement this single pebble is making."

A teacher would never say anything like that unless someone else said so. This is the student trying to figure it out, only to later get **** from the teacher because someone said the spotlight works as a focusing tool creating a focus point on the bright side, leaving the dark side to be overlooked, this symbolises the importance of perspective, as it lies in the human nature to make hasty judgements on superficial information, which may be only a small piece of a greater truth. You see, despite the student's free enterpretation following a perfectly understandable reasoning and the fact that it is a very emotional and personal enterpretation it is not what is the most common thoughts and therefore it is wrong (this is how my teacher worked, not only with me but with my entire freaking class and it was impossible for him to see things from a different perspective but he wasn't the one who corrected my exam so I got a good result ).

''No, no, I believe you are wrong. The true motive of this piece is to show us how we overlook the complex details of all the simple things in our lives. A simple rock holds more detail than what we could ever hope to fathom, and by showing us this, the rock has become something greater than any of us could ever understand. The artist clearly knows this and has proceeded to act accordingly and create art from an otherwise overlooked object.''

Of course whilst listening to side-stream musical genres on our grammophone players, to a quality that cannot possibly be mimicked by digital equivalents. I suggest We do it at the non-corporate café that is accessible only by climbing a mountain, where we'll disucss how the politicians are ignoring the needs of artists, as well as how we can make our society a non-monetarily based one.

The rock demonstrates fascism and the overall struggle of contemporary classes in today's society, also how watermelons are never accepted as true democrats in our modern day cactus.

Malevich (the guy who painted this) painted a few paintings of geometric art, a genre which he inspired, but the guy was definitely not a total talentless hack either. This was a WWI poster he painted, and was one of several decent works he made in his lifetime.

This one girl posted a picture on Facebook of a half finished floating rock wall on a white background and said it was in an art exhibition in Spain. I asked her, &quot;An unfinished rock wall on a white canvas?&quot; and she spazzes and goes, &quot;Yeah and what are you, an idiot? Full on ignoramous?&quot;

I told her, "I love how you immediately go to insults when all I was asking was a question. If you can't handle a little criticism on your art then it shouldn't be in an exhibition." She then proceeded to block me because apparently my criticism wasn't constructive. It's fine tho, she'll realize one day her art degree ain't getting her **** and her art will soon be forgotten (if it hasn't already) along with the rest of her life and career.

I believe that art involves making things that you are with thing you have. You are a prick and you had a rock to demonstrate it. So, it is art

I'm a proud graphic designer and a lot of my time is spent by searching for references, art is one of these references... sorry if I'm being a killjoke

also, sorry about my english

Eww.

I actually had some respect for graphic designers, but I suppose you're right.

They too, like all artists, are mentally retarded, pompous, elitists who arbitrarily decide the stupidest things are art because only they are qualified to make the distinction that **** thrown at a canvas is art.

For the definition of art, I look at anything but art.
What movies, plays, or music is art?
Not the ****, that's for sure. Those are only art when they contain a significant emotional impact. (Which absolutely no "art" has these days. It's just a bunch of snooty asshats.)

Maybe, art is one of the most personal things ever. It can really impact my emotions but not yours and vice versa. It's individual and that's why it's so hard to define which work should or shouldn't be considered.

Also is called art: Animations, Digital Paints, game concept art or even soundtracks, posters, covers, all of this things can mean so much for me and nothing for you. The only thing that can define this is our personal repertory, I've lived different situations than you and by this reason some things will touch me more.

That's just my opinion and I'm open to change it if someone convinces me. That's my conclusion about art. Hope you understand and feel free to discuss

Experience changes your own interpretation of the emotional message of art, but it does not change the existence of that message.

These modern art galleries (or contemporary, whatever modern day art is called) are the absolutely most stupid things by people claiming things represent THEIR emotions rather than using the tools they have to present emotion to others.

Art isn't about arbitrarily deciding something stands in for whatever meaning you are going for with a piece (no, a dot on a page does not "symbolize the painter's lone self expression").
Art is about inspiring feelings in others. And if you have to be a snooty "artist," not a normal person, making up ******** meanings for everything to be inspired, the art you are looking at is trash on the same level as Transformers.

Also there is a distinction between art in a "high-art" sense and art in an aesthetic sense (graphic design).
I've never heard anyone being as pompous as an artist because something looked pretty though.
