Constellation – The Absurd

This lecture began as a introduction to existentialism. Definitions given included illogical, inharmonious, unreasonable, ridiculous, and silly. Looking at the hyperreal sculptures of Ron Meuch, which in photographic form easy to understand until a real-life human figure is placed in the photograph due to the oppressive size of the sculpture. The absurd is often considered the twist away from the expected, or a attempting to find humour and meaning in an illogical world.

Fashion, art and chance meeting or a sewing machine and an umbrella was also discussed during this lecture.
