So I have a few more words...I forgot to mention seeing Philip Haas' videos at the Kimbell - Butchers, Dragons, Gods & Skeletons. This is yet another form of current communication using a different form of media. The films represented the reaction the artist had with specific classical paintings on exhibit. There was very little dialog yet the installation communicated a deeply personal interpretation of the artist's experience, feeling, and reaction with the paintings. Haas's multi-layered visual dialog shows how current forms of media can expanded the author's voice by demonstrating yet another dimension of human communication that is sometimes void of the written or spoken word.
