Second Homework

The video and the text both discuss the same ideas of silence. Especially when John Berger shows very strong examples of how the paintings represent with or without sounds. It establishes the different meaning of the paintings . Also how the difference between the original and copied paintings. He states how camera making the art work transmitted and destroyed the original unique meaning. On the other hand, The Silent Film Returns — on Social Media, talks about how the media has established a special trend of silent film. It states:” They’re best watched silently. If they even have sound, it’s completely beside the point”. I agree because when people watch a video with a sound. The meaning of the purpose will be stated. However if a video is silent, people can establish their own thoughts and ideas. Also when I looked at my Instagram or Facebook posts, I didn’t press the sound button because my brain creates a sound for itself.
