ART AND THE WORLD AROUND US: HOW OUR CREATIONS SAY A LOT ABOUT OUR SOCIETY

art, creative, creativity

“It’s what takes place in the moment of conception.”


the arts

We as people have always used art as a means to convey an image we see in our minds. It doesn’t matter if its a cave painting from thousands of years ago, or if its a someone using their digital drawing pad with a computer software today. We are always trying to convey some sort of message with what it is we’re drawing, writing, photographing, painting, singing, or sculpting.

art in real time

When looking at art, it usually conveys a meaning of what is going in our world at the moment. And we don’t fully appreciate it until later on in life. We look back and say to ourselves, oh, I wonder what was taking place Related imagethat made this artist do this piece of art. And when enough time has elapsed, people have no connection to the situation which generated the art you see, but makes people guess what was taking place.

looking to the future

Now, I said prior that art is created from the things we see in the moment. But what about the art that aims at how life will look in the future. These are the people who design art from the perspective of how they think something might look in the future. The art could be of a painting of how skyscrapers might appear, but we don’t appreciate it until 50 years later to see how much has change.

in their heads

Into the heads of the artist is an interesting place. We wish we could understand what made this artist create this image. What would make a human’s brain conjure up such an image. But we don’t know, and there lies the great mystery of the artist imitation of life.

I am from Racine, Wisconsin where I was raised until I graduated high school back in the year 2006. That entire time growing up in my mother's house, I was a student athlete. My goal was to embark on a general business career or athletics. But injuries through sports stopped a sports path, so I decided upon business with a focus in marketing. While attending undergraduate school at University of Wisconsin-Parkside, I began to write screenplays in my senior year. At first it was for fun, but I quickly learned writing allow me to transfer negative energy into characters I created. This led to a decrease in depressing mood swings, which in turn boosted my quality of life. After undergraduate school in May of 2011, I move to New York City for graduate school. While pursuing my MBA, I continued to write screenplays, but always wanted to write novels as well. I finished graduate school back in the year 2014, but wrote screenplays until I began thinking of my first short film, first First Day Fears. While finishing my fifth feature length screenplay, I started to write my first novel this year. So far, I have finished my first short film and working on my next one (Freedomless Speech), and recently self published my first novel (The Boy Who Could Talk To God) and short stories book (Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Volume 1). My feature length screenplays have been put on temporary hold to finish my short films and books, but I am making good progress on my sixth feature length screenplay. With year 2017 ending, I am currently writing my novel Precinct 86 and Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Vol. 2. I have started teaching myself photography and will pursuing that by summer of 2018, along with my videography, podcast later on, and more research for my documentary.
