Image Prevalence

6 Oct

1. Why do you think the reproduction of image is so prevalent in the world today?

The reproduction of image is prevalent in the world today mostly because people have the urge to share their pictures with one another. Sometimes they inspire people, and sometimes they repel others. Before the idea of copying images existed, people had to travel to a particular area just to gaze upon the image they were waiting to see. Thanks to the printing press, almost everyone was able to look at pictures without going to the places where the pictures were taken.

2. What do you think this prevalence bodes for the future of graphic design and your place in it?

Personally, I think it’s best if we don’t carry the concept of image reproduction too far, or other people will try to take some images and make them their own. It would also be best to have graphic designers seek inspiration from something people of all ages appreciate and find ways to come up with something original. There may also be a small chance two different people will coincidentally conjure the same idea, yet art enthusiasts will continue to learn from their mistakes. I know I always do.

3. Why do you think the John McCain drive for the presidency failed to use the Internet (or failed to use it effectively) as a means of communicating with voters?

The McCain drive for presidency might have failed due to the fact that the message didn’t come through in the world wide web, where most people spend more than 10% of their day. McCain’s target audience must have been the older, conservative adults in his age group, hindering his chances at winning the election. Whatever the reason, every candidate needs to be sure the campaign is widespread enough so he/she can be fully recognized and win the election.
