5 Awesome Art Forms For The Future

5 Awesome Art Forms For The Future

Art has always been a darling of civilization. No matter how fierce a civilization was or how direct the way of approach, from cavemen to corporate men today, everybody just pauses for a second and admires the subtlety of art. Though the concept of art has remained more or less similar, the ways have changed.

From scribbling in cave walls to blotting colors all over the canvasses, art has evolved along with humanity, making us wonder what the future holds for art. Looking at the patterns of things and considering the advances in science, the below five art forms may well play a part in our future.

1. 3D Printing

    Let’s face it, printing has been kind of lame for the past half a century or so. Color printers added a bit of flavor but still remained the same thing, then 3D printing happened. It was a dream come true for many artists. 3D printers are still in their beta form, but if the development is as encouraging as it has been for the past half decade, it could be a massive thing for the future art industry.

    From replicas of famous artworks to stop motion animation and printed garments, 3D printers are everywhere and it is expected they will blend with our lifestyle just like colors and papers.

    2. Virtual Reality Cinema

      From silent days to sound and to 3D, movies have traveled a lot, showcasing dramas, fantasies, and even shedding light on awful social truths. The cinematic experience of the movie embeds deep in our subconscious and we can simply not unsee the scenes we have seen in theater or on TV screens. Though we can simply watch movies on televisions or our laptops, nothing beats the goosebumps we get at the theater.

      Now, imagine that we could get the cinematic experience from our sofa instead of from going to theater and spending big bucks on the experience — sounds sweet, right? That’s why VR movies are expected to dominate our cinematic experience in the future.

      3. Nanoart

        The world we see is just a fraction of the real world. There are so many microorganisms which are invisible to our eyes. With nanotechnology, it’s so much simpler to spot them, picture them, and admire the sheer genius of nature.

        Even the photographs of bacteria and paramecium can dazzle us. It’s a form of photography, but much more complex and more technically difficult, thus making space for a wave of nano-photographers to try their luck at this new art form.

        4. Ferrofluid Art

          Ferrofluid is a magnetic liquid which becomes a jelly-like semi-solid in presence of a magnetic field. Sounds science-y, right? So you’re wondering how is this an art form? What happens is the liquid spikes up in contact to the magnetic field, giving it a surreal appearance.

          In addition to different sculptures, they can be made into magnetic paintings by injecting watercolors. People have identified the beauty of this fluid and are dedicated to create art out of it. Some prominent names are Sachiko Kodama and Fabian Oefner. They create meaningful sculptures out of ferrofluids. The awesome thing about this is that they can easily be made at home.

          5. Digital Graffiti

            In addition to just being pleasing to our senses, art can do much more. Graffiti fueled the European revolutions and is still used by many artists over the world to provide absurd and humorous social commentary on many issues.

            The Internet has digitized many things, but it seems weird to imagine digital art works, doesn’t it? But in the future, digital graffiti may become a common site for urban dwellers. Inspired by the New York laser graffiti movement, in 2008 the first commercially available digital graffiti wall was produced by Luma, named the YrWall.

            The spray designed for digital graffiti emits Infra-red light instead of paint, which is then tracked by a computer vision system which recreates the image which is sprayed with the help of a projector. .

            How to Stop Procrastinating: 11 Practical Ways for Procrastinators

            How to Stop Procrastinating: 11 Practical Ways for Procrastinators

            You have a deadline looming. However, instead of doing your work, you are fiddling with miscellaneous things like checking email, social media, watching videos, surfing blogs and forums. You know you should be working, but you just don’t feel like doing anything.

            We are all familiar with the procrastination phenomenon. When we procrastinate, we squander away our free time and put off important tasks we should be doing them till it’s too late. And when it is indeed too late, we panic and wish we got started earlier.

            The chronic procrastinators I know have spent years of their life looped in this cycle. Delaying, putting off things, slacking, hiding from work, facing work only when it’s unavoidable, then repeating this loop all over again. It’s a bad habit that eats us away and prevents us from achieving greater results in life.

            Don’t let procrastination take over your life. Here, I will share my personal steps on how to stop procrastinating. These 11 steps will definitely apply to you too:

            1. Break Your Work into Little Steps

            Part of the reason why we procrastinate is because subconsciously, we find the work too overwhelming for us. Break it down into little parts, then focus on one part at the time. If you still procrastinate on the task after breaking it down, then break it down even further. Soon, your task will be so simple that you will be thinking “gee, this is so simple that I might as well just do it now!”.

            For example, I’m currently writing a new book (on How to achieve anything in life). Book writing at its full scale is an enormous project and can be overwhelming. However, when I break it down into phases such as –

            Advertising

            • (1) Research
            • (2) Deciding the topic
            • (3) Creating the outline
            • (4) Drafting the content
            • (5) Writing Chapters #1 to #10,
            • (6) Revision
            • (7) etc.

            Suddenly it seems very manageable. What I do then is to focus on the immediate phase and get it done to my best ability, without thinking about the other phases. When it’s done, I move on to the next.

            2. Change Your Environment

            Different environments have different impact on our productivity. Look at your work desk and your room. Do they make you want to work or do they make you want to snuggle and sleep? If it’s the latter, you should look into changing your workspace.

            One thing to note is that an environment that makes us feel inspired before may lose its effect after a period of time. If that’s the case, then it’s time to change things around. Refer to Steps #2 and #3 of 13 Strategies To Jumpstart Your Productivity, which talks about revamping your environment and workspace.

            3. Create a Detailed Timeline with Specific Deadlines

            Having just 1 deadline for your work is like an invitation to procrastinate. That’s because we get the impression that we have time and keep pushing everything back, until it’s too late.

            Break down your project (see tip #1), then create an overall timeline with specific deadlines for each small task. This way, you know you have to finish each task by a certain date. Your timelines must be robust, too – i.e. if you don’t finish this by today, it’s going to jeopardize everything else you have planned after that. This way it creates the urgency to act.

            My goals are broken down into monthly, weekly, right down to the daily task lists, and the list is a call to action that I must accomplish this by the specified date, else my goals will be put off.

            4. Eliminate Your Procrastination Pit-Stops

            If you are procrastinating a little too much, maybe that’s because you make it easy to procrastinate.

            Identify your browser bookmarks that take up a lot of your time and shift them into a separate folder that is less accessible. Disable the automatic notification option in your email client. Get rid of the distractions around you.

            I know some people will out of the way and delete or deactivate their facebook accounts. I think it’s a little drastic and extreme as addressing procrastination is more about being conscious of our actions than counteracting via self-binding methods, but if you feel that’s what’s needed, go for it.

            5. Hang out with People Who Inspire You to Take Action

            I’m pretty sure if you spend just 10 minutes talking to Steve Jobs or Bill Gates, you’ll be more inspired to act than if you spent the 10 minutes doing nothing. The people we are with influence our behaviors. Of course spending time with Steve Jobs or Bill Gates every day is probably not a feasible method, but the principle applies — The Hidden Power of Every Single Person Around You

            Identify the people, friends or colleagues who trigger you – most likely the go-getters and hard workers – and hang out with them more often. Soon you will inculcate their drive and spirit too.

            Advertising

            As a personal development blogger, I “hang out” with inspiring personal development experts by reading their blogs and corresponding with them regularly via email and social media. It’s communication via new media and it works all the same.

            6. Get a Buddy

            Having a companion makes the whole process much more fun. Ideally, your buddy should be someone who has his/her own set of goals. Both of you will hold each other accountable to your goals and plans. While it’s not necessary for both of you to have the same goals, it’ll be even better if that’s the case, so you can learn from each other.

            I have a good friend whom I talk to regularly, and we always ask each other about our goals and progress in achieving those goals. Needless to say, it spurs us to keep taking action.

            7. Tell Others About Your Goals

            This serves the same function as #6, on a larger scale. Tell all your friends, colleagues, acquaintances and family about your projects. Now whenever you see them, they are bound to ask you about your status on those projects.

            For example, sometimes I announce my projects on The Personal Excellence Blog, Twitter and Facebook, and my readers will ask me about them on an ongoing basis. It’s a great way to keep myself accountable to my plans.

            8. Seek out Someone Who Has Already Achieved the Outcome

            What is it you want to accomplish here, and who are the people who have accomplished this already? Go seek them out and connect with them. Seeing living proof that your goals are very well achievable if you take action is one of the best triggers for action.

            9. Re-Clarify Your Goals

            If you have been procrastinating for an extended period of time, it might reflect a misalignment between what you want and what you are currently doing. Often times, we outgrow our goals as we discover more about ourselves, but we don’t change our goals to reflect that.

            Get away from your work (a short vacation will be good, else just a weekend break or staycation will do too) and take some time to regroup yourself. What exactly do you want to achieve? What should you do to get there? What are the steps to take? Does your current work align with that? If not, what can you do about it?

            10. Stop Over-Complicating Things

            Are you waiting for a perfect time to do this? That maybe now is not the best time because of X, Y, Z reasons? Ditch that thought because there’s never a perfect time. If you keep waiting for one, you are never going to accomplish anything.

            Perfectionism is one of the biggest reasons for procrastination. Read more about why perfectionist tendencies can be a bane than a boon: Why Being A Perfectionist May Not Be So Perfect.

            11. Get a Grip and Just Do It

            At the end, it boils down to taking action. You can do all the strategizing, planning and hypothesizing, but if you don’t take action, nothing’s going to happen. Occasionally, I get readers and clients who keep complaining about their situations but they still refuse to take action at the end of the day.

            Reality check:

            I have never heard anyone procrastinate their way to success before and I doubt it’s going to change in the near future.  Whatever it is you are procrastinating on, if you want to get it done, you need to get a grip on yourself and do it.
