Hello people of dA!

In the last weeks I'm getting the impression that there are many people out there that can easily be compared to fast food customers...

Finding many nice pictures in a few seconds, FAVING IT ALL, so that one can look it up later, when one has the time... (What maybe will never happen :confused: )  YES, I would call it "fast food art". It's the same issue like in music. People having thousands of music files on their gear, listening to just what their mood fits best at that time, spending no time to think or even really LISTEN to the music. And that's the point I am trying to make here;

We should not consume art like it was fast food or any MP3-file on our iphone. It's really not about having lots of favourites. What counts must be quality, not quantity. And I mean, is there any artist out there that does NOT feel sad if his or her art is faved for about a hundred times but having just a few people who leave at least a comment like "I like it!" ?
Do we really have that less time nowadays? We spend hours playing with our smartphones, watching TV or the Olympics, but when it comes to art we feel like we must give thousands of favs without even looking at an artwork for about ten seconds?

I think that it is no secret - it's even OBVIOUS - that many people select their images of interest by the way a thumbnail is looking. Yes, we always search for the special images, the ones that make us say: 'WOW !!! Mindblowing!!!' Oversaturation doesn't look good, but hey; I get more favs using it, so it must be good to do so.

Is that the way we want to think about art? We should stop running through galleries as if they would collapse at any moment, while we are going through them. We should be realistic! We will never see all of those great images, we have to limit our minds on at least SOME of them. We cannot hunt through dA searching for the ultimate images ending up in not even looking for about five seconds at the great images we find in so many artist's galleries!

Additionally, I just can recommend to slow down. I mean, if you really want to increase your skills you have to learn by analysing or even understanding why and how an image that is fascinating to our eyes , 'works' that good! It's a question of reflection, not a question of racing through dA, please think of that.

For sure, there are people out there, just collecting art for pleasure, not aiming to learn anything about photography but please think of this:

Almost every artist is happy about the appreciation of his/her art. And this is why we should show our respect and our interest by slowing down, taking some time to look at images we like, to think about these images and putting this inspiring moment into a small but nice comment that everyone will be happy about, that would be just great :)

By the way: I am looking for people from all over the world to get in contact, to increase my English skills in writing and speaking (skype), to learn about art or just to help out in specific situations.

Finally, I hope you enjoy the artworks presented by me and other artists here on dA.
You can support this journal by faving it, if you want to :)
If you have any questions, feel free to ask me.

Greetings

Hi Jan, das Wort "Fast food art" gefällt mir! Trifft den Nagel auf den Kopf! Man muss lernen in dem trüben Wasser hier die sehr guten Bilder und Fotografen nicht zu übersehen.
Erst heute wurde ich auf die traurige Tatsache aufmerksam gemacht das manche Bots benutzen um wahllos :+fav:´s raus zu hauen nur um auf sich aufmerksam zu machen. Leider hat der Kerl damit Erfolg gehabt!

I am sure reflexion is something that is getting more rarely every day. People are doing a lot of things without considering the WHY and the worth of it.

They are running fast to get somewhere. But as they have not thought about the direction, they are wasting their lives.

One day, I shall look at all my favorites (well, my Best collection anyways, because looking at all my collections will be impossible).

Skipping to the end, I have realized that what I considered best over an year ago actually belongs in my "Best III" or "Best IV" collections now.

Ah, progress is a double edged sword -- I cannot appreciate everything to the same degree, but I can appreciate some things even more.

Good thoughts!
I just know that my favorites come from the bottom of my heart, shock, unmistakable emotion.
I fave impulsively, or not.

For my own work, I try to do the same : I publish evreything I like, I feel, not minding a future success.
If some of my photos have been viewed by only one person (there are some) I have to feel it's enough, not so bad (difficult but ...) !
And sometimes my expectation confirms, months later I have a comment of someone who got a mind-travel with it ... So it was not only my pleasure, it was usefull !

Quality over quantity, as you said.

Thanks Jan

It was real pleasure to read you !

I had a few days ago a young polish lady who had an 'experience' with one of my photos ... one which had very few views during several months, I was a bit disappointed because that photo was one of mines I prefer ...

She said 'When i saw this picture, quite a lot of time go by, before i come down on earth. Thank you ever so much, for that moments of oblivion'

I invite you to follow our dialog if you want : [link]
It was a great moment for me, nothing could please me more in my photographer life !

She had what I call a 'mind travel', I think ...
I have similar experiences often, in front of an image or in real life ...
That's why we are here, isn't it ?

Your pictures provokes mind-travels too, Jan !

Agreed!
I'm always surprised to see people have like 200000 favs. Did they even look at those pictures for more than a second it took to open it and click fav?

I'm kind of on the opposite end of the specter. I faved 1124 works in 7 years on dA, about one fav in two days.
During the time, I went through tens of thousands of works, and the more I saw the higher my "fav bar" was set. It just became harder to impress me, and my usual criteria for faving something is when I feel something like "damn, I wish I took this photo!"
On the positive side, I think I have a great collection of photos to come back to for another watch (which I do every now and then).
On the negative side, I feel like I'm "penalizing" many artists by not faving their works which I think deserve a fav (and deserve to be seen more than some stuff with many fanboy favs).

So, I try to soften up now in my "old days" on dA. Sometimes I fav just because I get a fondness for a piece, or even if the work has its flaws but I find a certain element of it intriguing.
It still makes me fond of opening up my favs and simply browsing, remembering the photos (and occasionally non-photos), and checking up on what those artists are doing these days.

Hehe, now you made me feel old. I'm nostalgic lol

" I faved 1124 works in 7 years on dA, about one fav in two days." :w00t:

I think you should only add works to your favs when you feel like it fits to your expectations/inspiration/whatever.

About "flaws", well sometimes the idea or the subject is more important to me than technical/compositional aspects :)

You can feel old, it's alright, it does not change your age :D

I can't agree more with this Journal. I'm afraid to say I'm guilty of favving by the way the thumbnail looks.

It's got me questioning why I put artworks on deviantArt. Do I just want the temporary satisfaction of some faves? Comments are nice, but is it okay for social interaction to be the purpose of sharing artwork on this site?

I want to get a career in creating art that "looks" good and eye-catching, but I'm against advertising and corporate selfishness. Where does that leave me? Posting to Facebook to get a small amount of gratification when people 'like' my photo?

It truly is a sign of the shallow, wasteful, instant-gratification of society.
Music, TV, film, art, video games.
They're all showing a trend towards instant, crowd-pleasing forms.

Music is all pop, pathetic lyrics and shallow music tracks. And yet they're played EVERYWHERE, in shops, on buses, and the talentless singers are made as gods; yet the majority of them are just fake.

TV is all crime and cop shows, where you don't have to get sucked into it, and there's as much violence as possible.

Film is all CGI-based explosion-filled shallow, dumb action films. There's nothing wrong with action films, but the sheer QUANTITY of them nowadays is just terrible.

Video games are all Call of Duty clones, and that speaks for itself.

And finally, Art. Exactly what you have said in this Journal entry.

We need to change this, but how?

I am glad you read my journal!
It's great to read that it make you thinking about the way you appreciate/consume art.

I agree with all you said, especially about the trend toward instant, crowd-pleasing forms of entertainment!

"Music is all pop, pathetic lyrics and shallow music tracks. And yet they're played EVERYWHERE, in shops, on buses, and the talentless singers are made as gods; yet the majority of them are just fake."

It's nothing but selling something, no need of quality at all. Creating some "music Gods" just to sell more of them.

How to change this all? First we must recognize the problem, then we have to deal with it! I am sure most people feel the same, but they do not think enough about it. They don't feel like wasting their time consuming things and entertainment.

We need some giant eye-opener; I guess... :confused:

What kind of eye-opener could we hope for?
I was expecting the movie "Branded" to spread some sort of awareness, since it has themes like consumerism, and just selling things to the masses.
But it turns out the movie wasn't good :(

Do we try ourselves? To spread the word to our friends?

I am afraid that many KNOW about the nuisances, but most of them just say: "I cannot change anything anyway."
And THUS we cannot change anything - if we all think like that. People are asleep and yes, I agree... What eyeopener do we need? A global depression series ending in a suicide rate of 80% until people are waking up?

With that said, I must admit I'm not very good at leaving comments on said images, to let the artist know how much I appreciate their works of art, mostly because when I'm in that type of 'zone' where i just take its whole in and enjoying all the loveliness, i get to a point where i dont really know how to express it, and with each formulation i try to come up with just sounds cheesy and insincere and I try to avoid that, so i often just enjoy viewing the image really really much and then i leave the comment section be, because when i want to express something i want it to give meaning to the artist, yknow? that may just be me as a person though, being like that. I'll rather say something with depth and meaning than some overly repeated phrases that may drown in a mass of comments :slow:

:iconthinking-silence:
Thinking-Silence Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2012
If you are reflecting about this issue this much, I am sure you are writing very nice comments :hug:

It's not all about knowing anything about photography :) If we just tell people why we like an image, they (and also we!) learn what really makes their images (working).

Always try to write some specific comment that can just be said to the image you are viewing then. But sometimes the feeling created in the viewer is exactly the same that most of the people have. Thus is must be totally fine to write something many people mentioned before, in the comments :hug:

I agree with this :B That's why each time I fav a photo, I always spend time really looking at it and enjoying every bit of its, from its quality and the artist's hard work put into it to the emotions it it protrays, may it be a traditional work of art or a photograph of a landscape or a person. I take my time with every photo, studying the details and reflecting over the image's depth. :aww: This is something I've done ever since I joined dA, but sometimes I have forgotten to do so, like you say, it becomes fast-food art that just gets a quick look before the next, so I've started paying extra attention as of lately, reminding myself of the values and joys I get when I take my time looking at every piece I like. It's truly a great thing to do, because on this site I get to see things I normally would not in my every-day life, thus savouring such impressions is valuable to me :aww:

If I may add , does it matter whether there are those that just fave for the sake of quantity , not genuine sincere enjoyment of others images/art? If they wish to waste their time faving, do you want to waste your time complaining?
I have a gallery for myself. Not others. I get faved regularly by those who have hundreds of thousands faved. They probably barely looked at my images, but I don't really care. I enjoy taking photos and if occasionally others take the time to comment, I'm very happy. But I don't expect comments. There are so many fantastic images caught by people all over the world, I'm just another drop in the ocean. However, I regularly look back on my work and sometimes admire some shots and all the memories of that particular point in time, other times I think to myself "what was I thinking" and delete it. Don't worry yourself about the time wasters. I've seen your work. It's actually really good work. A pleasure to browse through. Well done.

Hello Geoperno,
Thanks for your reply :)

"If I may add , does it matter whether there are those that just fave for the sake of quantity , not genuine sincere enjoyment of others images/art? If they wish to waste their time faving, do you want to waste your time complaining?"

It matters for me as I want my art to be worth being watched for at least 3 seconds. But you are right, I don't have to care about it, but I addressed this issue as I want people to think about their fast food consumism of art. Moreover I want to ensure that my watchers and visitors know that I don't care very much for favs but for comments. I'm also glad to see that many other noticed this, too.

Especially in the case of criticism this side is quite devastating. But I think this is seen not only on dA, but in our whole society. Thinking and reflexion may be something for those who study philosophy, but for the masses? No, we just want to have some fun without thinking about consequences or anything else.

I know the idea of collecting one's artworks in a gallery just for oneself, not for the people looking at it. I'm doing this elsewhere on my portfolio ;) It's important to me to understand human thinking as I want to know what people like/don't like. I won't exactly try to reproduce such art, but I want to understand this, at least. :)

Thanks for the kind words about my art, I really appreciate that, it's honest. And thanks again for commenting, we are living in a society of a lack of conversation and thinking, and rubbish like "facebook or twitter" do not change anything here, they actually make communication even much worse by reducing it to short messages without any depth or intention.

Ich hab gestern eine Sendung über Loriot gesehen und dein Text hat mich gerade sehr an seine Worte erinnert. Die Welt werde zu schnell, zu grau (weil alles überall gleich aussieht) und man selbst Kinofilme seien inzwischen wie Werbung aufgebaut.
Das schnelle Leben ist sicherlich ein Problem, aber wie kann man dem gegensteuern? Es ist einfach so bequem, sich berieseln zu lassen (von den Charts zum Beispiel, von leichten Filmen/Büchern oder von Seiten wie tumblr und stumbleupon).
Was das faven bei dA angeht, ist die Sache meiner Meinung nach etwas anders, da viele einfach auf der Jagd nach Bestätigung (und Rückmeldung) sind. Ich glaube, dass es sehr viele Deviants gibt, die möglichst viel faven, um sich möglichst populär zu machen.
Und mal im Ernst - wie viel Genuss ist bei den Bildern hier schon möglich... meistens sind sie doch sehr klein, dann sitzt man (ich) am eher kleinen Laptop und ist immer ein bisschen abgelenkt.

Loriot ist (war) genial :)

"Das schnelle Leben ist sicherlich ein Problem, aber wie kann man dem gegensteuern?"

Man muss eben konsequent sein und sich davon distanzieren. Sich nicht mehr scheuchen lassen und sich angewöhnen sich Zeit zu lassen. Vor allem aber muss man selbst darüber reflektieren, was man wirklich braucht/will. Wenn man sich dessen im Klaren ist, fällt vieles einfach weg. Bequemlichkeit grenzt leider an Faulheit, da hilft nur Disziplin und aktives Handeln um dieser Passivität entgegenzuwirken.

Für mich selber habe ich die folgende Einteilung gewählt:

[link]

Entertainment vermeide ich völlig, Sport und Kunst, sowie Lesen, Nachdenken, Sozialverhalten, Charakterentwicklung fördere ich so gut es geht.

Genuss, hmm. Ja, da hast du schon Recht. Viele Bilder kann man in dieser Größe gar nicht richtig genießen. Andererseits gibt es auch viele, die - größer betrachtet - gar nicht mehr wirken würden. (Je kleiner, desto grafisch-eindeutiger/klarer).

Ah! And this just popped into my mind: maybe there are people who cannot speak your language and english neither. or maybe they can speak english but they cannot speak that well and they cannot tell their feelings well in english. so instead of commenting they just +fav the pics they like. I also cannot speak english that well so usually I also just +fav pics. :o and on the other hand sometimes you cannot tell the reason why you like a pic. simply you just feel it and like it. :) you know: a picture is worth a thousand words! ;)

but as I said I know your problem. :) and yes balance! I think balance is an important thing but spite of this I also usually lack of balance... ^^;

Ich dramatisiere gerne, wenn ich etwas darstelle. Sonst wird vielen leider nicht bewusst wie wichtig mir die sache erscheint :)

"wir machen uns darum gedanken, weil wir uns dafür die zeit nehmen. erfahren, erleben und reflektieren. eine grundpersönliche angelegenheit. eigentlich …"

Japp, im Grunde wird hier auch niemand die Partei für das 'Fast Food Verhalten' ergreifen. Wer ein Foto nur schnell zu seinen Favouriten hinzufügt, ohne es in Ruhe zu betrachten, der wird auch nicht so einen "langen" Text lesen, eigentlich schade. Aber mich freut es zu sehen, bzw. zu lesen, dass andere ebenso diese Erfahrung machen, es scheint ein gewisser gemeinsamer Konsens zu herrschen. :)

Ich denke unsere Gesellschaft hat den Fokus einfach auf falsche Dinge verlagert. Geld macht nicht glücklich, Konsum ebenso wenig, und alles was mir persönlich wertvoll erscheint, kann man ohnehin nicht kaufen. Vielleicht macht gerade das den Wert aus.

hast schon recht Jan, wir wollen alle mehr, wissen aber eigentlich gar nicht warum...das hinterfragen ist nicht mehr jedermanns sache...zu jedem foto gehört auch ein mensch, und wenn ich den menschen nicht kenne, kann ich das foto nur auf meine art konsumieren, und konsumieren, das haben wir zivilisationsmenschen ja recht gut gelernt in den vergangenen jahrzehnten...aber in sich gehen und spüren, wach sein und sich tragen lassen, nicht wollen sondern offen sein, das alles ist uns doch sehr verloren gegangen, aber jeder hat die freiheit (solange er nicht in seinem eigenen gefängnis lebt), den eigenen und somit einzigen weg zu gehen, der ihn wieder nach hause führt...
nicht nur hier auf dA sollte das geben und nehmen sich die waage halten, ich selbst versuche meinen teil durch regelmässige feature beizusteuern, um auf die meiner meinung nach bewegenden werke anderer hinzuweisen und sie gleichzeitig in bezug zu anderen passenden arbeiten zu stellen. als eine art ausstellung und würdigung inmitten dieser riesigen community, die leider leider zusehends an klasse verliert und regelrecht überschwemmt wird, weil viele sie anscheinend mit facebook verwechseln...

Wenn Gott einen Willen hat, dann kann es am Wollen nicht liegen, meine ich. Wir wollen einfach das falsche, im (irrtümlichen) Glauben, es sei das richtige. Unsere unmögliche Situation ist einfach die, dass wir denken, wir könnten anders wollen als Gott, weil wir einen anderen Willen zu haben meinen. Aber das muss man erfahren. Das Heilmittel ist das Sein, oder weniger abstrakt, die Liebe.
