Art has been around for a very long time. Art comes in all forms from shapes and sizes. In the three readings each of the authors describes the different elements art can have in them. The reading “Gropius Bauhaus” it explains one of the elements in art which is color, can have some meaning that relate to us on the inside. Color in art usually represents emotions but can mean something else.
The second reading, “Typophoto” by Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, he makes talks about Typography and Photography. Typography deals with communication of words and Photography is communicating visually. He also makes a prediction on how Typography and Photography would evolve in the future and benefit society. Nagy sees Typography and Photography as another form of art and how during the Bauhaus those forms of art helped him to spread his point across.
The third reading, “On Typography” by Herbert Bayer, Bayer describes Typography as a “service art” and not “fine art”. I don’t know what “service” and “fine” has to do with art but my guess is “service” deals with commercial based while “fine” is doing it for fun. Every art has key elements and the main ones are Line, Color, Shape, Form, Value, Space and Texture. I’m guessing the key elements that are lacking in art of the past are definitely color and maybe space.
