Topic: Many people have been profoundly affected by great works of art. Describe a work of are-a book, a movies, a drawing, a photograph, a painting, a song, or a musical compositing-that had a powerful impact on your life. What work of art was it? How did it affect you? Why?

James Dean said, “If a man can bridge the gap between life and death, if he can live after he's died, then maybe he was a great man. Immortality is the only true success.” Clearly living on in the memories of others, the legacy we leaves behind and through our progenies can equate to a sense of immortality, but only in a metaphorical sense. The 2005 science fiction movie Aeon Flux, with its imaginative spin on modern day cloning, has profoundly broadened my interest in immortality to a point where some might call me a fanatic with an immortality complex. The movie itself was interesting but its concepts were what inspired to embark on a quest for knowledge on using clone technology to preserver if not duplicate ones’ essence which then guided me into projects transpiring globally such as Russia’s 2045 Project Avatar and finally lead me to Germen research on extending life expectancy by isolating and freezing strands of DNA.
The move Aeon Flux has a futuristic setting with an attention-grabbing plot – the ability to be reborn after ones’ life had been extinguished. I truly appreciated that the clones, for lack of a better term, were born-again from embryonic from, then rose from childhood into adulthood and followed a natural life cycle. Science has proven through extensive cloning research and successful experiments on animals such as the sheep, a clone cannot and will not take the form of the original for an innumerable amount of reasons. Aeon Flux inspired me to investigate more into the subject of cloning and allowed me to come to the realization that the answers to eternal life, the answers I seek that is, did not lie in clone research and technology for two

    Art is an extremely private experience, yet, it is meant to be shared with the public. Society, as a whole, examines the art produced and has the right to approve, disapprove, acknowledge, ignore, praise and abuse it. The public or society has not remained constant over the years. In the time of the Renaissance, for example, only a select few were "society." They commissioned art, were patrons of the arts and their artists. Today, almost anyone can share in the experience of art. They can attempt…
