Artists suggest meaning in their artmaking practice through their choice and manipulation of materials. The materials chosen to make an artwork can imply a meaning that other materials would not. The ways these materials are used also play a huge part in the significance of an artwork. Artists such as Jeff Koons and Damien Hirst use certain materials and utilize them in ways to convey messages to the audience. This can be seen in artworks such as “Puppy”, “Michael Jackson and Bubbles” and “Rabbit” by Jeff Koons and “The Dream”, “Mother and Child Divided” and “The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living” by Damien Hirst.
This lead to Henson’s name being associated with pedophilia - a clear indication of the power of a critic to influence media, and subsequently audience perception of an artist. Thus, the works of artists have a certain fluidity to their significance, due to the capacity for critics to influence audience understandings of artist and their
As an artist myself, I need to express and inspire myself through visualization. I believe what makes it popular is in terms of expression. People express themselves in different ways and it takes a true artist to tie all this together. I am not necessarily claiming that art defines culture, but rather, I am proclaiming the notion that it is visual representation of particular
We search for a place to be familiar and feel a sense acceptance, not realising that Belonging is a dynamic process of identification, which establishes a relationship with individuals and their society. The bonds we form with people play a fundamental role in shaping our self of belonging and also transforms through new experiences. The crucible by Arthur Miller demonstrates a constant composition of dramatic techniques throughout the play. Tension is generated throughout the play by the constant struggle to distinguish what is true from what is perceived to be false. Miller’s use of juxtapositions, dialogue, irony, symbolism and imagery implicates his techniques to help implement his ideas into this play.
I take great pride in going against the cultural eating patterns that have negatively impacted billons of people on this earth. The fate of individual people and the fate of humanity have been intertwined more than ever because of the negative eating practices that a great majority of humans participate in. The expression “you are what you eat” could not be any closer to the truth. Length and quality of life are directly proportional to the eating patterns that humans practice. I cannot fathom disrespecting my body by torturing it with excess meat, junk food and dairy products.
Annaly Aviles Jeremy Voigt AP English, July 26, 2012 What life is now? In the novel “Amusing ourselves to Death” by Neil Postman, he indicates that the television has greatly impacted our culture. The main big argument that Postman has, is how television has overcome the printed word. This has become a big problem because it has greatly affected economics, politics, religion, and education. Children are so used television entertaining them that they expect the teachers to entertain them the same way, so they are unable to learn as they would without television.
Honor and Integrity in “The Crucible” Honor and integrity can be defined in many ways. They can be defined by how a person holds them in the public eye. Other people define them by how they live their lives as no one can see their actions. However many ways to define honor and integrity, they will still influence and play a major role in one person in a given situation. In the play, “The Crucible”, the author, Arthur Miller shows that a certain situation can affect the honor and integrity of an individual.
This question has often been asked, and the boundaries between craft and art are often contested. Is it that art evokes meanings and emotions far beyond what the viewers observe, while craft remains the underlying basis of art? Or is it that a craftsperson is someone who practices their skilled craft, and an artist is someone who cares about their craft, cares how it looks, how it’s presented, if it will inspire and what is its intended purpose. Some believe craft is the use of materials for something practical that has some individuality but limited imagination. As soon as the creativity hits a higher level and the work assumes its own identity, whether it has a function or not, that is when it becomes art.
Outline and evaluate attitudes to food and eating behaviour (9 + 16) Social learning theory emphasises the impact that observing other people has on our own attitudes and behaviour to food. Parental modelling is one explanation of attitudes to food as children observe their parents and this affects children because parents control the foods bought and served in the home. Brown and Ogden support how imitation leads to attitudes to food when they reported consistent correlations between parents and their children in term os snack food intake, eating motivations and body dissatisfaction. Media also has a large impact on attitudes to eating behaviour. Macintyre et al found that the media have a major impact both on what people eat and also their attitudes to certain foods.
This is where progress can potentially be made; inspiring creative thought where it is not typically expected to be. The accessibility to inspire creative thought explains how the arts are important. The issue is to figure out, why? Research shows that art has more power and identity whether or not students are good at it. Students can be taught what is appropriately creative in order to guide them to the enhancement of their creative intelligences.
