Iconic Image in Popular Media/Art

I chose Michael Jackson's glittery diamond glove because I think it encompasses being an icon and an artistic being. It made seem like a joke but I think this is a very important piece of popular culture. This is an icon that has surpassed decades of change in artistic style and standards. In the general term of icon it is an a person or thing regarded as a representative symbol of something. To me and relating to my art Michael Jackson's glove has influenced me and my family in inexplicable ways. It makes us happy and it gives us jokes to make in turn gives me good ideas to positively work on art and make it humorous at the same time. I would use it in my future work as a main focus of the entire gallery. I discussed with a friend completely making another replica of a glove and treating it as the real iconic glove.

  1. I love the idea of Michael Jackson's glove as an icon. When I thought of iconography my first thought immediatley when to Michael Jackson. I am not sure if there is a bigger icon world wide in a celebrity sense than he is. I am positive that replicating his glove would be a fun project. Clearly the glove its self is a symbol of his celebrity sense the glove was introduced to when his style of dance was shown before the world.
