We Are All Artists is a podcast that Timmmmboy posted online,
about the assignment ds106.
This podcast encouraged students or anybody who is interested in
computer and art to do more in that particular field.
He basically explains throughout his podcast that...:
'Art' can be learned, can be practiced everyday, if people have the
will to get better or are interested in the subject. Art is not just born talent, its something that
anybody can develop their skills!
ds106 online course can be part of the 'practice' of art and computer.
Creativity can be developed through this project and so students who
are in the project can join the program.
He says "You are more creative when you are hungry"
What he means by this quote is that when people want something,
they are constantly thinking about something that they want and
find a way to achieve your ultimate goal.
The process to getting to your goal might be not necessarily always
easy, usually challenges take harder processes. Even though the
path might seem rough, people should accept the fact that
it will take time. Tim says "Get Uncomfortable!"
The keypoints of his lecture was also about "Inspiration"
There are so many things around people that people can
get inspired by and then create an own art.
He also then talks about how sometimes pop culture
can be sometime an unreliable source for inspiration.
Some works but some just don't.
On my personal opinion from listening to the lecture,
Tim obviously was not a fan of "pop culture" or the
popular media, reality TV shows!
I thought his opinion on not getting inspired by
watching other people's life was not necessary all true to all people.
I say this because anybody can get inspiration from
everywhere and anywhere since all people feel, view and consume different.
Also about what people feel about what interesting is different!
(this is also my personal opinion as well...)
It was interesting to hear how ds106 can be a training for
students to develop art, computer and creative skills.
I agree that it requires people to use your creative side of mind
and then totally have fun with it.
Despite the extreme cases, I just thought that art is very free
and suppose to be fun. Its a very difficult subject to be graded
and be judged on.
What did you all think about the podcast lecture?
