PhotoManipulation: Visual TrendsCOLLECTIVE CONSCIOUSNESSPhotoManipulation: Visual Trends by conzpiracy
"A fad, sometimes called a trend, meme or a craze, is any form of behaviour that develops among a large population and is collectively followed with enthusiasm for some period, generally as a result of the behaviour's being percieved as novel in some way."
As authors and consumers of Photo Manipulated works, we spend a long time viewing thousands of images within the PM gallery, and at times there is a noticeable boom in popularity for particular styles or themes. This phenomena is not exclusive within our chosen medium, but something that is apparent in anything that engages human interest.
An understanding of visual trends, their propogation and the cycle of influence is an area well worth examining, particularly those involved in industry. More often than not, a broad knowledge of aesthetic styles gives the artist a creative edge; allowing them to gauge the contextual relevance and quality of their work.
