Blog 7 - A Tarkovsky view of nature
There is no denying that Tarkovsky had a unique perspective when viewing and portraying the world. His works are inundated with spirituality and metaphysical themes with long takes.I think when thinking of the appreciation of nature we can learn something from Tarkovsky. We have been looking at nature from various perspectives in class but we fail to recognize the aesthete's perception. We have discussed the use of emotional response to and knowledge of nature to address our aesthetic appreciation of it, but we should also look at our preconceived notion of nature. That is, do we have set ways that we view nature before we are immersed in it? Does this concept of what we expect nature to look like impact our aesthetic appreciation the nature that is present in front us?
