Postby Castor Troy » Sun Aug 30, 2009 7:14 pm

AMV Paradise did an interview with Koop if AMVs are art. Interesting stuff:

the interviewer was a bit of a moron really, the way he kept saying ''is an artist really an artist because he didn't make his own pencil/paint...?'' ...yea...OK

I consider AMV's to be an art form to a certain degree, like Auriga which he used as an example, is stunning, beautiful, took time to create it...sure you aint using a pencil, your using a cursor instead. I'd just call it Digital Art.

Anime is an artform, Music is to...combining two art forms = art still?

:o that was pretty cool. :>

I disagreed with a whole lot of what koop said concerning art and amvs, but it's still really nice to get our side of the argument out there.

Subjectivism FTL :down:

Oh hi, this topic. How are you? It's been a couple of weeks hasn't it? How have you been?

Duchamp's fountain is art. Merda d’Artista is art.
Calling something art has no meaning or merit - it doesn't fucking matter.

I do believe the focus of the topic was that koop did a rather interesting interview, not the actual question at hand. :|

And you're completely deluding yourself if you think that's where it's going to stay.

I like that the "Your Gone.." image was on the screen the whole time.

Basically wut Vivaldi said, but unlike the comments bashing the association of amvs and art, just because i dont believe amvs are art doesnt mean that i dont think they're worthwhile and can't enjoy them for other reasons.

and "Your Gone." Oh Koop :awesome:

Oh btw, that interview from from awhile ago.. wish I had actually looked into it more instead of just winging it the interview.. I do believe AMVs are still art, but not so much with the examples I had mentioned in the interview (or rather, with better examples of why I think so).

Either way, whether AMVs are art or not doesn't really matter. I just hate the condescending tone/attitude of people that look down on editing AMVs.

PS - the "Your Gone" avatar was my a-m-v.org profile pic for that short period of time. Nice.

I listened to the interviewer for about 10 seconds and then closed it even before they got to Jay. He was annoying enough that I didn't want to bother.
