Abstract

The Art-Po project integrates literary exploration of symbolism and substance of birds. As a multimedia genre, it inter-relates artistic illustrations interpreting contemporary and mythological, esthetic and ethical meaning of the notion of flying in space and time dimension. Artworks are created by university students at the UGD Academy of Fine Arts, calendar format: 12 texts co-operating with 12 painted images. Visual and verbal perceptions of birds and flying, transmit imaginary and realistic, yet perpetual pursuit of positive spiritual meaning, against the negative. Representations contain conflicting and antithetical characteristics of birds as metaphors in legends, cultural, literary and daily concepts. The project observes built-in ambiguity of birds seen as complex past and contemporary emblems of The Art-Po project integrates literary exploration of symbolism and substance of birds. As a multimedia genre, it inter-relates artistic illustrations interpreting contemporary and mythological, esthetic and ethical meaning of the notion of flying in space and time dimension. Artworks are created by university students at the UGD Academy of Fine Arts, calendar format: 12 texts co-operating with 12 painted images. Visual and verbal perceptions of birds and flying, transmit imaginary and realistic, yet perpetual pursuit of positive spiritual meaning, against the negative. Representations contain conflicting and antithetical characteristics of birds as metaphors in legends, cultural, literary and daily concepts. The project observes built-in ambiguity of birds seen as complex past and contemporary emblems of sublime beauty and monstrous bestiality. Birds are viewed as epitomes of amorphous, fluid entities, climate and terrain change, catharsis and catastrophe, hazard and havoc, transmitted diseases and digitally induced games of terror, or triumph. Bird flights are also interpreted as migration through energy and matter, as concept of change and constancy, which, beyond their binary determinants, maintain aspirations for stable, transcending balance within the spiritual and physical laws of nature, and humans. Key words: bird, movement, myth, contemporary, flight, light, fight
