Media vs Medium
I agree- mediums refers to two or more people who talk to the dead. Use of the word is grammatically incorrect, and likely of the same source that brought us the word "ironical". We could start a discussion about the attempts to separate the news media (who use some of the same media as artists) from fine arts, but I for one don't feel the need to overload Wikipedia's servers today. In the meantime, can we make a bid to save the English language and remove "mediums" from this page, or at least note that it is incorrect? 188.8.131.52 (talk) 20:23, 6 August 2010 (UTC)
what about "immaterial" media ?
- sound waves (music)
- words (poetry, litterature)
- nature (landscaping, land art)
I edited the photography section to include photographic media. I also removed the reference to photography as a technique because there are hundreds of photographic techniques, making the term 'photography' too vague to be described as a technique. 184.108.40.206 (talk) 20:48, 6 August 2010 (UTC)
Hi all, I didn't see this list when I started the Wikipedia:List of 100 Art concepts Wikipedia should have. Clearly they should be merged, but I'm not sure all of it should be merged together. As an art conservator I'd argue that you need to have some of my stuff in this list, too. --RichardMcCoy (talk) 14:53, 16 October 2010 (UTC)
This article needs a clean-up. The types of content and applied styles are not actual media. They should be mentioned only in how they relate to an actual medium, if they can only be achieved through use of that particular medium. Oicumayberight (talk) 10:29, 11 July 2013 (UTC)
For example: cartoon and comic are types of content and styles applied to content. Cartoons are not the actual medium and can be done on a wider variety of media than murals. Oicumayberight (talk) 10:38, 11 July 2013 (UTC)
- The individual choice of media to create works of art could be considered a style, however in the article any forms of styles are merely a description for materials or equipment that are related, are a category of different forms of materials or media that haven't yet been specified.
- I think "related styles" don't necessarily need to all be removed, as this is encompassing a compressive article. A sentence that some are styles is perhaps all that is required. — RW Marloe (talk) 08:24, 23 July 2013 (UTC)
