Painting is painting unless is SHIT

Lesson 6/7

Virtual Worlds a Journey into hype and Hyper reality Woolley Ben, 1993 306.24

Hyperreality :- good example of openers is finding an essay with examples of Hyper reality

Simulation:- history of Computer Simulation Page 53 of Virtual worlds Page 55 Second paragraph is a good example.


Baudrillard and Hyperreality

  • Gave us alot a term way of understanding about thoughts and ideas
  • Haddon Sundbolm illustrations 1930s Coca Cola
  • Even better than the real thing PopMatters.com
  • Breaking down the world like it doesnt exist (imagination)?

Post Structure Philosophers

  • Gilles Deleuze
  • Roland Barthes
  • Jean Baudrillard
  • Jacques Derrida
  • Helene Cixous
  • Michel foucault


Guy Deboid :- Situationist, Observer, Cinema

society of the Spectacle (Stuff from a different view)

Kaul Marx

  1. All that is solid melts into air; all that is holy is profaud quote from hamlet

People that are in charge of money have the power over the workers. Cheaper work force else where


Imagination is far from reality, the meaning of reality is lost in modern media. Taking points from Kaul Mavx and Guy Deboid. The reality of media and the message is lost from person to person. Its far from reality Hyperreality is now the norm. Alternately  we can see this from a different point of view. Psyco is a great example as it takes the view into the film. Experiencing what the actor experiences.

Lession 4 of Transmedia and Media Hybridity

Here is my mind map of Lession 4 of Transmedia and Media Hybridity.


Been thinking about sound alot over Reading Week. To me sound is the most important aspect of any game. Whether it be loads of sound to fill out the game or little sound to cause tension. Seems to me that game that have story behind it and levels have more upbeat and action music compared to an MMO or a free rooming game like Minecraft, where the music is very mellow. I think with me I will be going down the silent mellow hardly no sound, because I want to create tension and a fear of the unknown.

Watch this (regardless of the commentary just listen to the music and silence.)
