2/2/16 Objections to Causation Argument (objections to skeptic) 1. There exists photos with intentional content (expresses he photographers viewpoint – have style) 2. From the fact that some photos do not express a viewpoint it does not follow. 3. All arts have tools – equipment. All arts have scientific component Objections to Control Argument (objections to skeptic) Skeptic: photographer does not have total control Obj: This is utopian, unrealistic, not art has total control over its materials The issue is not total control, but sufficient control. Ex: Cartier Bresson o The more choices we make, the more challenges we may encounter, the more creative we may become. o Art is playful in new light/angle Defamiliarize – photo/film take objects out of context and present in new light 2/4/16 The Second Premise Cinema is photography in motion? No. 2 reasons 1. a) Editing (Montage) – rearranging film shots in an artistic or intentional way. - In the process reality is manipulated. - This is why film may not be transparent b) Sound, Dialogue, Music 2. Digital – computer generated images are altering the relationship between cinema and reality as we know it. Movie: Battleship Potemkin 1925 USSR Sergei Eisentein – Director, Theorist Does it really need music? No Does music interfere with our perception? Yes, because w/ the music, the film makes us think about it in certain ways. Do we see more when it is silent? Yes, because we are left w/ our own mind and trying to discover what is happening. You see more and it is slower. Movie: Charlie Chaplin “The Immigrant” 1917 The aspects of the content are more appropriate for cinema, instead of theatre. Cinema makes it easier to see certain things. It draws our attention better than theatre. Cinema enhances the performance. It has a continuity and rhythm that add to the comedic moment that theatre cannot match.
