Cave People & Ancient Cultures
Art & Technology
They did not realize they already show the “art".
Just want to record how they experienced and understood the world they living.
They showed the art using cave painting.
Cave painting from Bulgaria, showing hunters and animals
Even people did not know what art is, but they already made it.
The so called unreal and unconventional art already existed.
Art is what we can see and hear.
Art is what we can imagine
Comes to the ancient cultures just like Egypt, Chinese, European, etc.
People began to know what art is and started to make their own art
Egypt wall pictures(the same as cave painting)
Greek legend etc.
Art is not just pictures, but also myth and legend
This time people had a better living standard than before. They began to explore the unknown world.
So the curiosity and fascination about the unknown world drove the ancestors to image it, to explore it, finally to record it.
That can be seen as early art.
Art is what we cannot sense, we imaging.
The discovered of perspective.
This discovery has changed the way people experienced and understood the world.
In the very early period, all of the main Civilization in Earth, including: Ancient Europe, Ancient India, Ancient Egypt and Ancient China. Experienced the world in the same way- 2 dimensional way.
The pictures and artworks do reflected the way people experienced the world.
3 Dimensional Perspective
The School of Athens,
In Italian, is one of the most famous frescoes by the Italian Renaissance artist Raphael. The artist was in total command of perspective and were able to create in their art a beautiful and realistic world.
But, both Pictures or Photographs, and even TV and Film. All of these things are fakement. These are kind of magic, cheat our eyes. Let us believe we are experience the real 3D world.
In the future, Perspective will keep going change the way people experience the world.

.Reality and illusion
Expressionism was developed as an avant-grades style before the first world war.
