There can be a profound lack of integration between the past and the present since:
1. What happened necessarily took place under "lesser" circumstances than now, which generates a fundamentally separate context.
2. Artifacts from the past superabundantly clutter the cultural landscape and are seamlessly reused to generate an even greater superabundance from which individuals are unable to discern original intent or meaning.
Supermodernity is a step beyond the ontological emptiness of postmodernism and relies upon a view of plausible truths. Where modernism focused upon the creation of great truths (or what Lyotard called "master narratives" or "metanarratives"), postmodernity is intent upon their destruction (deconstruction). In contrast supermodernity does not concern itself with the creation or identification of truth value. Instead, information that is useful is selected from the superabundant sources of new media. Postmodernity and deconstruction have made the creation of truths an impossible construction. Supermodernity acts amid the chatter and excess of signification in order to escape the nihilistic tautology of postmodernity. The Internet search and the construction of interconnected blogs are excellent metaphors for the action of the supermodern subject. Related authors are Terry Eagleton After Theory, and Marc Augé Non-Places: Introduction to an Anthropology of Supermodernity.
Manifesto Destino by Nico D. Smith
the artist stands at the pinnacle of human experience and should exemplify this fact. people should revere and respect the lifetime that goes into the production of that art. most arts today are not real but is simply an attempt to aggrandized themselves giving little or no Thought to the preservation and evolution of mankind So-called socially conscious art is the mask donned by false artists to claim relevancy amongst peers the level to which the artist goes in revealing their mindset is a good indicator of quality of their art. everyone is seeking a standard by which to judge what makes one artwork better than the next. actually the word deeper is appropriate.
