Life imitating art?
    #2561664 - 04/15/04 01:05 AM (14 years, 2 months ago)

Life (the suspect in this article) imitating art (Grand Theft Auto 3, the PC and PSX video game)

I wouldn't say that is life imitating art....but art showing a darker side of life :wink:

Once, men turned their thinking over to machines in the hope that this would set them free.
But that only permitted other men with machines to enslave them.

Life imitates art, which is why i FUCKING HATE the concept of reality television.

Typical television viewer:

Oh, reality television...this isn't contrived bull mash, this is how people really are...

I would have to say that is a strong, yet agreeable claim.

Life does imitate the narratives provided to us through the myths we encounter. (see Dr. Fasching's Narrative Theology After Auschwitz: From Alienation to Ethics , Augsberg Fortress, 1992)

When we watch tv and have these stories presented to us, we automatically begin to compare and contrast our lives with these so called "real" people. This shapes our attitudes, which in turn shapes our beliefs, which finally influences our actions.

Yes... do I even have to explain now why I stopped watching tv? Who wants to be programmed for a life long addiction to this fix of entertainment.

Art is a mirror too reality and nature.
