My First Art Show

My First Art Show
Last week we had an art show to display my New Media in Art class. I chose a project dear to my heart which is all of my friends that have left college and the new ones I have made this term so far. The title was Friends:Come and Gone, and it was a 20 page magazine on glossy paper, and for the art show I displayed the book as well as two framed photos from the book entitled "cigarette" and "party of one" This project was my favorite in the class, because i sent all my friends the finished result and they all loved it so I'm happy for that. A Lot of people showed up and all our classmates works were excellent.

J. Robert Oppenheimer

McLuhan includes a quote by J. Robert Oppenheimer in his book , The Medium is the Massage. The quote reads, “ There are children playing in the street who could solve some of my top problems in physics, because they have modes of sensory perception that I lost long ago.”  McLuhan included him in this book because he was such an expert, but realized the value of being an amateur. It is the catch 22 of growing up and investing your time in something you are passionate about. You become prolific up to a point to when you can’t realize the simplicity in things that can be used to explain the things not known. 


Oppenheimer was one of the brightest Theoretical physicists of our time, and was one of the head designers of the first atom bomb that America used to destroy the town of Hiroshima. He went to schools like Harvard and Cambridge, and found he was not good at the application of physics and turned to theory. This made him the perfect guy for the Manhattan job, and he found his niche mediating the crew of 1,500 in Los Alamos, New Mexico. This site was one he visited in his youth after being diagnosed with dysentery. He felt remorse after the events and was accused of spying soon after. Although not found guilty, Oppenheimer was stripped of his security clearance for the Government and was disregarded in the society anymore, thereby leaving him a shell of the brilliant man he used to be, unable to progress the future of science to help our Nation's policies.
