Re: AUTOCUE

Yes of course it does - it means the speaker is the personification of that which is to be communicated - though his words need to be guided

AUTOCUE

Does it not matter - in terms of the authenticity of the message - that the words coming out of the elected official's mouth - are scripted and being read off a glass screen?

To answer the question

Changing a work of art to suit public taste would make it worse under the current system (context)

Re: Poetry here.

TV program
In my head
Do you like it

But it's so crap
Yet we must say it isn't
As it has been given to us
As a program for us girls to like
Where it reduces our persons
into the base standard
That is enjoyed by

Re: Poetry here.

Listening to Alex Katz (2017) The painting did represent a toy man A face of a toy was construed on a canvas In paint very easily applied without worry The lines came after from an attempt At another picture of a flag That never worked out Quickly into the shower before it dried The paint came off B...

Re: Poetry here.

Softly walked the steps up Indeed the path was now clear As rain fell lightly on the ground He marched on Where to he thought Not having a destination in mind he switched off And simply allowed his feet to keep walking Seeing himself move through the crowd in the eyes of others He grew strong and qu...

Re: Would altering a work of art to suit public taste improve it or make it worse?

The public and their taste are dumbed down and stunted by design. The system doesn't want enlightened, philosophically thinking beings. A project was done by two contemporary Russian artists who did a nation-wide survey asking people of Russia what would be in the best picture of all time, in the e...

Beautiful girl on the train
Your hair tied-back so sweetly
Your hands

Your eyes
So piercing and brilliant
