Art is detail of so many things that can be absorbed if we really just take a moment and just let it come in,and listen.It is clear from the video that art is everywhere, in the street, in a park, in a building or in a movie so the art is not just at museums. 

The video let out many aspects of art and how it affects our daily lives. The reason the producer uses  breadth in the video is to connect the contemporary word. An artist uses a point of view to comfort us with a stem gaze or sight lines to hint at something we don’t see. From photography, Yoruba crown to caillebotte’s panoramic Paris, and Shenman’s provocation film helps to give an artwork meaning.’ Although, such arts explains the importance of visual stimulation and symbolism. The Yoruba Crown symbolizes the power of the king’s ancestors whose power is seen in both this world. Similarly , Paris street, Rainy Day 1877 is a powerful  art for expressing social classes, where people wear a suit in the street and other working class people relate how Parisian modern life ended in the 19th century. The art tries  to show the contemporary world. Cindy Sherman  approaches herself as a subject and she suggests a range of female roles. In “Untitled Film Still,# 92  She shows the creativity of female subjects without any title.
