Sonnet 133 | The new Media with Shakespeare from iNEEDaDAMNgoodJOB.com on Vimeo.
This is definitely a departure from a way Shakespeare's sonnets are traditionally interpreted! No spoken words--just the exploration of a virtual representation and music that conveys the strong emotions present in the poem. (Honestly, it scared me a little bit with its intensity.) So, is this art? Art as the Modernists defined it? After all, it is a radical departure from tradition in form. But are we losing something in this departure? Is it so subjective that we are losing critical aspects of Shakespeare's original work? What is the value of originality and the concept of "the original" anyway?
