    What does it mean to be an artist?

    From a societal point of view, how does an artist serve humanity through his or her works? Many artists simply get rich and famous, but is there more to it than that? What about those lesser known musicians, painters, filmmakers and such that make profound statements through their creations and performances? What makes an artistic performance profound in the first place?

    • Many artists are misunderstood and that is the problem, you 'll only understand an artists if you, yourself are a true artist. Sadly most artists don not get the recognition they deserve until after they have passed away. – petergeoff21 4 years ago

    • The poem "Portrait of the Poet as Landscape" by A. M. Klein could shed some light on this topic. – JennyCardinal 4 years ago

    • This is sort of like the question asked in every art history/fine art class, "What is Art". It usually sparks a lot of heated discussion. However, finding out what it means to be an artist today vs perhaps in the renaissance could be an interesting point to start from – hmsnow 4 years ago

    • I agree with the commentator above, it is a broad question. However, as a visual arts student on the cusp of graduation I would say being an artist in the contemporary art realm means being defined by other artists. Often in class I will hear comparisons being drawn between a learning artists work and a famous artist. We are constantly searching up artists who have already developed a unique subject matter that has defined them as worthy of attention within the art world. I am an artist however I am defined by the artists of the past and present, their techniques and subjects, and their successes and failures. – melpetrinack 4 years ago

    Nice article, the insights on the games are profound and well-developed! I’ve lately heard of a soon-to-be-released online game that I forgot the name of, but apparently it involves a universe with (literally) billions of planets that the players will be free to explore and name as they venture into it. To me this is the next step with choice in gaming, because even the makers of the game don’t know the full content of it. Everything is therefore not pre-determined.

    Bioshock and the Illusion of Choice in Gaming

    Thanks for that article! I think it’s important to not be too academic about what poetry is to keep it reachable and universal as a term. I see it as a glimpse into a more interconnected perspective on life, as it makes us connect words or images that seem to be unrelated, hence the art of metaphor. The film “Baraka” by Ron Fricke does a wonderful job at that, despite the lack of narration. The sequences by themselves bring the idea, by purely visual means, that all life is one at a deeper level.

    Poeticism in Cinema

    Great article! As far as adaptions, I’d recommend also checking out two Akiro Kurosawa films if you haven’t already: “Ran” which is an adaptation of King Lear and “Throne of Blood” which is basically Macbeth with samurais.

    I agree that Shakespeare’s works basically provided an array of messages that are really guidelines for living a peaceful life, as all characters in his tragedies who didn’t follow those guidelines lived a life of pain. But a lot of those “moral of stories” have already been told by tales that were centuries older if not more.

    I think what made Shakespeare a genius is how he re-kindled those messages with the poetry that constantly flows in his plays. That same poetry innovated the English language with a lot of new words, metaphors and expressions used today that can be attributed to him.
