The readings on post modernism were a little bit confusing during the first reads, and I found myself having to reread sentences two or three times. The idea of art now in the current era of post modernity being so expansive and different than ever before is definitely interesting and relatable. It makes sense even on a personal level with how many aspects of each culture goes into one thing, opposed to what was the norm before with art being specific to an area. The example of Van Gough's painting of the shoes struck me since we looked at it, and I did not draw as much out of it as Jameson. But it still is clear that it does represent one solid idea rather than breaching across many different borders of culture. It is an interesting idea to think about.
