Paly to Platinum

C magazine delves into the history of Paly band culture, and how certain artists were able to continue their careers after graduation.

not so abstract

In this century, rather than being characterized by the end result, art gains meaning through the process. Modern art is artwork made in the 20th and 21st centuries and is recognized for its abstract and experimental characteristics, defying rules that have held true for centuries. However, not all modern pieces of art are as obscure as we believe the genre to be. Those who don’t understand art might gauge its value on the aesthetics, and this superficial interpretation of modern art prevents the audience from seeing the artists’ messages; a small placard next to the piece is often not enough. An attempt to understand the true meaning behind a few contemporary pieces of art revealed that a major piece of modern art is actually the way that the artist uses different social, cultural and political contexts in their work.

Let’s see that movie… again

Today it seems like most of the movies coming out are either sequels or remakes and it’s hard to know if they have lived up to their originals. Remakes differ from their originals in a few ways: some have slight plot twists making the film more modern, others are made using newer technology and some have become more progressive with messages they convey.
