“TV is, after all, the modern day Roman Colosseum.”
That’s one of my personal, favorite quotes, from folk singer/activist, Ani Difranco. It really got me thinking how important art and entertainment is to a society. News is a whole different can-o-worms, but art, entertainment, that innate need, that dwells in every single human, to share our story to the masses…is in fact, ancient.
“The ‘ancient craft of communicating events and experiences, using words, images, sounds and gestures’ by telling a story, is not only the means by which people passed on their cultural values and traditions and history from one generation to another, it has been an important part of most forms of entertainment ever since the earliest times. Stories are still told in the early forms, for example, around a fire while camping, or when listening to the stories of another culture as a tourist.”, stated on Wikipedia.
To become lost in a story, a film, a TV show….is now, daily ritual for most of us.
“These days in which we live, life is full of stress, that’s why art & entertainment is must for life, there it is an important part of our cultures and habits. We can search many types of art & entertainment, some types are contemporary and some are conventional. If we talk about entertainment, we all know its importance in our lives. It is not only a form of our views, but also a way to remove stress in our society. Where stress makes our minds off, on the other hand entertainment removes stress from our lives and also gives us global knowledge. “ (http://www.articlesbase.com/authors/funkiduniyacom/781998)
You are probably asking, “What does this have to do with window décor?”
Gordon’s has been helping our customers create state of the art theater rooms, for years. Room darkening, synced motorized shades, to create a space, to help you get seriously lost in a film, a tv show, and even live theater.
The sheer anticipation we all feel watching those luxurious drapes being pulled back, the footlights illuminating the performers, the surge of music swirling around your brain…it wouldn’t be the same in the light of day, would it? There is something so valuable about blocking out the outside world, only to get lost in another.
Our room-darkening cellular shades help create that ‘other world’, with the benefit of insulation. Room-darkening roller shades, help achieve the same ambience, yet with a sleek modern look. And sumptuous, embellished drapes, direct your attention to the wonder that is about to unfold on stage.
