The Art Of Blade Runner : Original Matte Paintings and Sketches Discover a collection of original concept art, sketches and matte painting made for legendary movie, Blade Runner, followed by a special documentary about the making of the movie. The Art of Blade Runner Ralph Steadman - Carp Crazy Carp originated in China and Eastern Siberia and are now jumping in the rivers of Illinois. How they got there is open to speculation. Most things seem to originate in China - so you would think that they are a far more successful nation than the United States. However, I think that America celebrates success more personally and I presume that the Chinese do not reward their citizens quite so generously. Carp, however, always appear to me to be a far too exotic fish to simply eat.

The creation of one of these analyses on the www is a challenge both technically and in the creative response to and treatment of content. This page deals only with content; technical assistence will be provided elsewhere. The word "interpretive" is particularly important to keep in mind as you create your visual interpretive analysis. If we agree that meaning is created as the result of a transaction between an individual reader and a text at a specific moment in time; and if we agree that a reader both brings meaning to and takes meaning from this transaction, then it follows that there will be many possible interpretations of any text or illustration. What you hope to create for your students is a guide to some of these many possibilities, not a report of the 'right' interpretation.
