Shaping vs Reflecting

At the Zimmerli art museum we saw a lot of interesting art, a lot of which reflected society during certain time periods. In a lot of ways the art was reflective of each society, such as the Soviet Union section of museum which displayed many of the harsh realities people of the USSR were facing. But in terms of the selfie, we are adding our own addition to a piece of artwork. It’s not longer a picture of art but it has been changed to express unique subject matter and has been dated to serve our time period instead. So in a ways art can shape a society as well.
