Re: best work with Flash? [ following curt ]


<Director on the other hand.. does it still give you
the logo during
the loading bar?>
yes!..and I deplore this & I'm not so familiar with
Flash but if that does something similar at some point
I deplore that too.
..but this is for me an important but seperate
argument from the one about whether some tools are by
their nature more suitable for the creation of art
works on the net than others and the wider but related
one of what does "idiomatic" mean for the net.

<hits closer to the
essential nature of the net in it's present state.>
I'm becoming increasingly uncomfortable with the
notion of the "essential nature" of any medium - one
of the things, but by no means the only thing, that
disposes me to be interested in an artwork is how well
the artist overcomes the resistance of the medium.
Also although I get very tired of posts that say "yawn
..we thought this was all settled years ago"
( because that's often an excuse for evading the
subtleties of an argument) and though I like a good
argument as well as the next person, in this case I
*do* think there is a very real sense in which a lot
of this debate is simply about people boosting/dissing
their favourite/least favourite set of tools - my view
remains that the test of a creative artist is that if
they were lost in a deep dark wood with a piece of
charcoal and a slate they would sooner or later make
something interesting ( and not necessarily out of the
slate and charcoal)
It's horses for courses - tools aren't intrinsically
anything , the medium isn't intrinsically anything.
It's what the artist actually *does* in any of the
areas discussed that is where worthwhile discussion
begins.
Perhaps stupidly, personally, my heart sings when I
see pathetic little lo res images and movies
struggling for life on the net. I love 'em and I love
having to compress sound and make harsh & cruel
decisions about what to keep or reject.
For me what's nearest to idiomatic is simply the
channel of communication -I get pathetically excited
that I can just put the thing up there and people will
come and look at it. But all that's subjective and I
don't wish to make it into a general case except in
the negative sense to say that for me, possibly
peversely, the net is the best possible place to put
images.

Re: FWD ArtBase Update--Rub Linda


I'm not trying to revive the discussion on the merits
of the piece itself about which a number of us said
quite a lot at the time but I must say I'm a little
surprised at this.
I understood that one of the criteria for inclusion on
the ArtBase was the amount of discussion a piece
generated on this list, amongst other places.
Whatever position one takes on this piece it certainly
did that.
Additionally it seems to me that the context of the
war, which again was a major topic of discussion on
ths list makes the work, at the very least, of some
historical interest.
The above makes me think it's essentially an aesthetic
judgement -but this sort of thing is notoriously
subjective, especially when considering contemporary
work; I think it's uncontroversial to say there is
much weaker work than this on the artbase.
