Sample Modern Art Pro Trends

Each Modern Art PRO Trend is on its own slide with implications, a quantified score, and examples linked to online modern art articles, videos and images. Examples:

Adult Playgrounds Play areas designed for grown-ups help to alleviate stress Implications - Who says jungle gyms are meant only for children? Adults need some playtime too. Designers are incorporating these grown-up jungle gyms into architecture and public spaces, offering the on-the-go consumer the opportunity to let loose and forget about everyday nuisances. Today’s consumer isn’t afraid to get in touch with his inner child, and with the fast-paced and hectic world in which we live, accessible adult-oriented playgrounds may be just what it takes to relieve stress.

e-Waste Art Designers creating artwork out of electronic junk Implications - An increasing number of eco-minded artists are applying the method of upcycling to their creations, with e-waste -- used tech devices, old computer parts, telephone cables, keyboards and the like -- as the primary components of their artwork. Everything from furniture to portraits are being made out of electronic junk, which offers an eco-friendly alternative to the traditional disposal of tech products, and gives green consumers with a passion for technology a unique way to decorate their homes.

Digital Surrealism Photoshop has turned digital artists into modern Salvador Dalís Implications - Modern surrealism is an art form accessible to many as its canvases, brushes and paint are all found within Photoshop, and its art lessons readily available for free through websites and online videos. Just as with traditional surrealism, digital surrealism is full of unexpected juxtapositions.

Imposed Interaction Designers create workspaces that force collaboration and idea-sharing Implications - Research suggests that the more people in a work environment are forced to interact and converse, the more innovative ideas will be created. Studies in this area have concluded that knowledge transfer of any kind can stimulate people to think more creatively -- seemingly unrelated conversations can often lead to moments of insight. To this end, augmenting worker interaction is becoming a primary goal of workplace design as more brands begin welcoming these interaction-promoting areas instead of looking at them as places of unproductive socializing.

Optical Illusionism Trompe l'oeils offer an intelligent escape from reality Implications - Consumers are no longer attracted to purely "pretty" items. The incorporation of optical illusions into products coincides with the desire for items that make people think, use their imagination, while at the same time escaping from the banality of everyday life. From home design to fashion prints, things are not always what they seem.

Apocalyptic Architecture Converted bunkers resonate with 2012 fears and eco-economic hedging Implications - In areas that have been affected by war, bunkers are symbols of protection amid chaos. Savvy architects have converted these structures into hotels, homes and off-the-grid fortresses to woo environmentalists, history buffs and those who have taken a survivalist recession attitude in one fell swoop.

Mega Murals Large-scale artwork goes beyond community viewership Implications - Traditional outdoor graffiti murals intended for the general public are making their way into home decor and design concepts, a reaction to the consumer demand for larger-than-life—literally—pieces of bewitching art. For both the community and interior design, mega murals make the most of the materials that are readily available by having paint applied directly onto flat surfaces.

Hobbitats Fantasy forest retreats deliver surreal abodes that are one with nature Implications - Films like 'Avatar' and the 'Lord of the Rings' trilogy have inspired a deep nostalgia for nature. Architecture that shuns traditional aesthetics and blends in with its surroundings appeals to environmentalists who yearn to escape crowded cityscapes in favor of a woodland or forest abode.

Preserving Privacy Designs that encourage isolation at the workplace Implications - Although the trend in workplace design has been toward open spaces to encourage interaction, there is also an opposite trend in preserving workplace privacy. Designers are creating self-privacy pods to which workers can retreat for a bit of peace and quiet. Encouraging isolation in this way does not deter from an organization's goal to enhance interaction and team-building, but rather compliments it by giving employees a place where they can de-stress and clear the mind -- something that is certainly necessary in today's fast-paced and stressful work culture.

Peaceful Productivity Making the workplace relaxing is a priority for modern work styles Implications - The workplace is often associated with stress and negativity, but this stands to change with innovations that help alleviate the pressure of hectic workplace environments. These innovations range from privacy pods that allow workers to achieve peace and quiet and connect freely friends and loved ones, to desks with built-in sleeping areas so sleep-deprived consumers can squeeze in a quick nap. While stress can be a motivational factor in productivity, it's usually the calm and peaceful mind that will deliver the best work.

Digital Doodling Hi-tech devices enable everyday consumers to be digital artists Implications - Previously, only the most skilled illustrators adept at using virtual drawing tools could create stunning pieces of digital art. But now, more and more brands are creating hi-tech drawing devices and apps that enable even the most average artist and illustrator to create a digital masterpiece. Perfect for everyday consumers who love to get creative, these virtual doodling tools open up the art world to anyone and everyone.

Interior Texture Tactile design elements infuse homes with an interesting aesthetic Implications - Fashion designers often add interesting texture to their garments in an effort to capture customer interest, and now, home and interior designers are doing the same, creating everything from textural wall coverings to textured furniture and more. Providing a tactile quality to an otherwise simple design stands to elevate its uniqueness, providing a way to enhance and modernize a product or space without making it look over the top.
