Products of modern American visual culture such as Psy‘s Gangnam Style” or “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” prove that progressively innovative technology (making information sharing exponentially easier) combined with the intention of capitalistic gain positively correlates with the American visual culture’s new “Melting Pot” movement. Transnational trade exposes us to more visual experiences than ever before, as any form of visual communication and style unique to their home country travels to assimilate into modern American visual culture dominated by images from the popular media (reality TV, cinema, video games, “celebritism,” fashion, etc). It’s not long before video games become a new medium for fine art (though it has already begun).
Though there’s much to appreciate about our unique visual culture, we found a new lucrative interest in being a spectating patron or envious fantasizers of what we’re exposed to visually today. In theory, this is foreshadowing a more singular visual culture in the future of American art. This large and consumptive collection of diverse elements of art rests within our nation’s “melting pot” (uniquely American visual culture as the perfect vessel), which will always be stimulated by fruitful growth of new technology.
What is your thoughts and your theories on the future movements in American visual culture, which includes fine art?
