These questions and comments should deal with “Why Art Matters,” “The Power to Look,” “How Art Can Help You Analyze”

Disscussion 1#

The video shows the different perspectives and it can bring us different representations and feelings. We can use the Sherman as an example as she gives more sense of power to the viewer through the camera angle. One of her methods is having the model look away from the camera. The painting uses a similar perspective to represent the rich and poor people where rich people have more focus in the image. Even the crown has beads over his face to protect people from looking at his eyes. In addition, the video was able to convince that the artist can shape the way people will see and feel about it.

Discussion #1: How art can help you analyze

In the video ”How art can help you analyze” the presenter is trying to convey that one needs to look beyond what they see. A picture can say a million words. She is telling us to use all of our senses when solving problems. Questioning oneself and others can help see unclear clues and solutions. One example is analyzing what you see in the paint of the train. There are many elements that are missing in the painting. So, we need to ask, why is it missing and it’s meaning behind it. I believe the presenter is stating a convincing argument because she gave two clear examples explaining different ways of solving problems. Analyzing plays a big part in solving problems. Like I mentioned earlier using all five senses can really help you analyze beyond what is just in front of you. Two questions I would ask is, why does the author use the train without important elements? What is he trying to say/ represent? Lasty, do you think too many perspectives can confuse or mislead a solution?

Discussion Question #1

“The Power to Look” by the Art Institute of Chicago explains the importance of details in artworks that shape our interpretations and how we perceive art.  This video seeks out to answer how the ways we look at a work shape our experiences and interpretations. Many important factors such as the framing of the image or the scale at which it is captured can affect our interpretations. In Gustave Caillebotte’s “Paris Street; Rainy Day”, Scaling is used to precisely depict the difference in social classes during modern reformed France in the 1800s. Similarly, in Cindy Sherman’s “Untitled #92′, director camera shots are utilized to allow the viewer to perceive the subject through an angle the artist deliberately chose. By using this technique, Sherman can invoke the feeling of helpless of the subject unto the viewer, though it’s a high angled camera shot. Therefore, the techniques artists use directly shape how we interpret and perceive artwork.

How Art Can Help You Analyze?

In the video “How can art help you analyze” Amy E. Herman expresses the situations that art can help us to analyze and describe situations accurately, and to take the right steps. There are parts that I agree with her, but her statements are not quite convincing.
Firstly, I agree with her about art can enhance our perception. When you interact with art you might get different perspectives and think more deeply about the details. But these skills are already taught in police schools, law schools, and med school. A doctor who doesn’t interested in art is as qualified as their colleagues who are interested in art about their professions. Features such as correct diagnosis, successful crime scene investigation, or interrogating suspects are acquired through years of training.
Secondly, the presenter talks about how art can improve our ability to translate what we see to others. But she just points to this and does not show evidence about it. Of course, skill may be useful in real life, such as in the example of a victim describes the incident to the police. But she doesn’t actually explain how can a person got this skill by looking at art.

Discussion Questions #1 “why art matters”

The presenter in this video makes a confession case as to why art matters and is more important than one might think. One of the presenters in this video shares that when looking at any type of art it allows one to be present and more aware of their environment. the viewer is able to really stop and just be more conscious of their surrounding. It also gives people more form of expression, whether they are the artist or viewer.

discussion question #1

In the video “How art can  help you analyze” used intellectual standard, accuracy, depth and clarity. The narrator goes on sharing, how ability to analyze art can help such professional field, Doctor, police and nurses help solve their case. Better analyze at art can show more depth and could found more detail. One example that showed in video about the police officer when first officer saw two criminals and next officer saw a total of six criminals. People with Better analysis in art can shared more accuracy of object or people. An example showed in video, the police investigating the criminals and the victim or witness share of more accuracy of criminal because of better analysis in art which help police better identify the criminals . Great analysis in art can be useful in real life situation and it is a  great trait to have. After watching those videos it showed me a bigger image of how art can be useful for our life and the importance of art.


Why Art Matters?

Art appeared with the advent of man on earth. History knows many examples of prehistoric artefacts such as hunting objects made of stone or animal bones, a variety of painted pottery, and cave painting. Thus, art is a document of the era, reflecting human thoughts, hopes and a generation that transmits ideas and experience to the next generation. However, for some, art is pleasure, for others, it is self-expression. Of course, this is partly true, but art is more than experience, art reflects and engenders life.

We can say that the human brain is a work of art by nature. Since looking with our eyes, we see with the brain, while listening with our ears, we hear with the brain and so on throughout the entire human sensory system. Accordingly, the brain helps us perceive and create art. Nevertheless, the brain must be educated to catch the meaning in Kazimir Malevich’s Black and Red Squares or to try to feel the whole spectrum of Beethoven’s experiences in the Moonlight Sonata. Consequently, in the hope to understand the world in which we live, it is necessary to consider the history of art as a continuous process of life, and not as a set of random pictures, sounds and objects.

Opening the world of art, we gain the ability to see, perceive and hear the world through works created by people. Therefore, knowledge in the field of art helps to think outside the box to find innovative solutions. Equally, it is an opportunity to see familiar things outside the material world. Moreover, art teaches tolerance, mutual understanding and empathy. Accordingly, art is certainly a tool for the harmonious development of personality.

how art hep us to analyze

In the third video, the Smarthistory presenter made a great convincing case by explaining how art could help us to analyze complex real-world situations. using the intellectual standard depth to look deep into art, what we are facing every day and how the skills to translate what we see could save lives and help us to be successful in what we do. Rene Magritte Time Transfixed of 1938 a painting won’t make any sense if you look at it quickly in the video. the presenter explained how to analyze this painting by asking so many questions and made us realize so many things we didn’t pay attention to it at first. these skills help us in our complex real-life situations. the video mentioned how the doctor uses his skills to find out what is wrong with his/her patient, it could be by analyzing an x-ray or by examining the body to look for a symptom which the patient cant feel. another example is the law enforcement agent how he/she describe the crime scene. amazing how analyzing art could be helpful in our reality. facing complex situations daily would make us think about analyzing what see and build the skills to translate it.

Response to Question, “Why Art Matters”.

I think the presenters in the video titled, Why Art Matters, did an excellent job in showing the importance of viewing art other than from just an aesthetic point of view.  As one presenter indicated that we live in a visual world and being able to better understand what we see can help us out in many aspects of our lives.  Some of these aspects as suggested by the presenters included noticing all the different ways images communicate, an increased visual acumen accomplished by intensely looking at things, a higher overall awareness of yourself and your surroundings, a desire and capability to see beyond first impressions and finally an increased ability to notice details in things.  They had numerous and credible arguments for the importance of Art and this video might even sway the most ardent of skeptics.  The only question I would pose to maybe lower the value of this video and viewing art in general, is whether these types of skills could be attained more quickly and to a higher level of competence by doing other activities?  Just a thought.
