Lyrics and Videography

This week I've been paying close attention to the lyrics of songs as they play on the radio. Words are really powerful things, and when combined in certain ways, beautiful things can come to. One song that really struck me as having beautiful lyrics was "Kiss Me Slowly" by Parachute and Lady Antebellum. These two groups collaborated to create a gorgeous piece of art work. Even more impressive than that is the video that goes along with it. If you are unfamiliar with the song or video, click the link below! Please leave your comments stating wether you think this is art or not!

As a graphic design major, one of my assignments this past year was to take an object and create it using words which described the object. This is my own personal artwork.

Look at this image without thinking about anything

What do you see?

Did you see everything?

Are you sure?

Look again.

Do you consider this art?

Where can we find art?

Take a look around, almost everything around you can be considered art. Below are some links to some blogs I found which backup my point. Feel free to explore with an open mind.

Hello, my name is Alexandra Gardner.
But, at age 12 I took creative liberty and gave myself 
the nickname of Alix. 
I did so to be different
To stick out from the crowd, 
And so that I could dot the "i" in my name with a doodle. 
As a child I loved art, and as I grew, my love for art did as well. 
I believe that art can be found anywhere
and that it is best found by persons with open minds. 
I am currently a college student at Endicott College, working towards my 
Bachelors of Fine Arts in Graphic Design. 
I am on a journey to find beauty in everyday objects, and present them to the world as art.
