Fine art reimagined for the selfie era

Art is a reflection of its era. With that in mind, it’s not surprising that, in the age of apps and emojis, Ukrainian artist Nastya Nudnik is using the vocabulary of social media to rebrand familiar images for a digital world. 
Her collection, Emoji-nation, reimagines some of art history’s most celebrated works by adding symbols from our e-world — a move that challenges our conceptions of “traditional” art and makes museum masterpieces accessible to a wider audience. Nudnik’s four-part series doesn’t concentrate on a specific time period; it covers everything from Michelangelo to Degas to Magritte. However, for a 21st-century viewer, perhaps her most successful and moving interpretations are based on realist paintings by 20th-century American artist, Edward Hopper.

biratinyalnizligi:

Tanrı bir an için paçavradan bebek olduğumu unutup can vererek beni  ödüllendirse, aklımdan geçen her şeyi dile getiremeyebilirdim, ama en azından dile getirdiklerimi ayrıntısıyla aklımdan geçirir ve düşünürdüm. Eşyaların maddi yönlerine değil anlamlarına değer verirdim. Az uyur, çok rüya görür, gözümü yumduğum her dakikada, 60 saniye boyunca ışığı yitirdiğimi düşünürdüm. İnsan aşktan vazgeçerse yaşlanır. Başkaları durduğu zaman yürümeye devam ederdim. Başkaları uyurken uyanık kalmaya gayret ederdim. Başkaları konuşurken dinler, çikolatalı dondurmanın tadından zevk almaya bakardım. Eğer Tanrı bana birazcık can verse, basit giyinir, yüzümü güneşe çevirir, sadece vücudumu değil, ruhumu da tüm çıplaklığıyla açardım. Tanrım, eğer bir kalbim olsaydı nefretimi buzun üzerine kazır ve güneşin göstermesini beklerdim. Gökyüzündeki aya, yıldızlar boyunca Van Gogh resimleri çizer, Benedetti şiirleri okur ve serenatlar söylerdim. Gözyaşlarımla gülleri sular, vücuduma batan dikenlerinin acısını hissederek dudak kırmızısı taç yapraklarından öpmek isterdim. Tanrım bir yudumluk yaşamım olsaydı… Gün geçmesin ki, karşılaştığım tüm insanlara onları sevdiğimi söylemeyeyim. Tüm kadın ve erkekleri, en sevdiğim insanlar oldukları konusunda birer birer ikna ederdim. Ve aşk içinde yaşardım. Erkeklere, yaşlandıkları zaman aşkı bırakmalarının ne kadar yanlış olduğunu anlatırdım. Çünkü insan aşkı bırakınca yaşlanr. Çocuklara kanat verirdim. Ama uçmayı kendi başlarına öğrenmelerine olanak sağlardım. Yaşlılara ise ölümün yaşlanma ile değil unutma ile geldiğini öğretirdim. Ey insanlar! Sizlerden ne kadar da çok şey öğrenmişim. Tüm insanların, mutluluğun gerçekleri görmekte saklı olduğunu bilmeden, dağların zirvesinde yaşamak istediğini öğrendim. Yeni doğan küçük bir bebeğin, babasının parmağını sıkarken aslında onu kendisine sonsuza dek kelepçeyle mahkûm ettiğini öğrendim. Sizlerden çok şey öğrendim. Ama bu öğrendiklerim pek işe yaramayacak. Çünkü hepsini bir çantaya kilitledim. Mutsuz bir şekilde… 
Artık ölebilir miyim?

The clouds over Los Angeles cleared up just enough to snap a picture of the Blood Moon.

Nice shot, Steven. This photo was our pick today for our Southern California Moments project.
