The way to getting this is to actually let people see the Mona Lisa. This, in fact, can be done in a few different ways, but all that matters is that people want to see it again. Of course, exhibition value will only increase if people enjoy the painting and want to tell their friends about it so that more people will recognize the composition of such a formerly well-known artwork. This value also thrives on everyone talking about how amazing the painting is in order for people to want to witness it. If no one appreciates the content of the Mona Lisa and her famous smile then there is no value in exhibiting
With the excess of technology narrated in both histories, people began to lose more and more their interpretation capabilities. With reading, people are always encouraged to interpret situations and conversations, but with all the attention now be given to the technologies started to not be so necessary to have this ability to interpretation. Another factor that eliminates the need for interpretation is that these technologies are used a lot just as a distraction and people do not really know what they are watching. An example of this is seen in the history Fahrenheit 451, in the following conversation between Montag and his wife about the programs she watched on television " ‘I had a nice evening,’ she said, in the bathroom. ‘What doing?’
People create the perfect world for them in their minds, but because reality is far from perfect, people know what is reality. People tend to run away from reality, but it does not mean that they don’t know what it actually
When the film started I got a brief look at some of the paintings before the documentary actually went into Marla story. My first thoughts was someone is just trying to make money off this kid and she being forced to do these silly paintings. So I supposed I went into this movie with a somewhat negative view but after actually watching Marla work on a few paintings that view change. This made me come to the conclusion that, although all forms of art gives us a peek into the personality of the artist, Modern art seems to do it best. Modern art is usually nothing but raw emotion or powerful ideas driving the art.
Gossip or “mitote” is mixed up with many conflicting messages, it’s learned and agreed with at a very young age because it’s a normal form of communication in our society. It makes us feel better to see someone else feel as badly as we do. “Misery likes company” (Ruiz 38). We are infected with and contagious to others with fear and suffering. By adopting the first agreement we use “white magic” to rid our mind of the “black magic”emotional poisonous spell and gain personal freedom.
I learned that although Shirley Temple was a very good girl and everyone looked up to her, she had quite a temper and a nasty attitude at times. Her mother was fond of spanking her too. Once I was done reading the historical work, I felt that I would like to read more into Shirley Temple’s life than what was presented. I’m not sure I would like to read Kasson’s other works because they don’t seem to be interesting. I would recommend this book to whoever wants to read about the Great Depression, wants to learn more about a few influential people during this time and Shirley Temple.
I seldom watch indies before because I usually watch films for entertainment. A independent film could be meaningful when it has audiences appreciate it, otherwise what the filmmaker has done and his/her personal vision that the filmmaker attempts to express would be a mug’s game. Confined to a filmmaker’s thoughts, there is no expectation that every audiences can accept ideas of that indie. Hopefully, target audiences of indies are those who are sophisticated and watch movies not just for entertainment. Watching indies give those audiences a chance to ponder over their lives and society where they live in.
After watching the video Art 21. I deeply agree with Wodiczko’s comment on how people feel more comfortable talking to strangers through the beauty of art, than to talk to love one’s about personal and painful experiences in person. The idea of sharing your story through a monument is an amazing idea because it allows people to speak out and express themselves about the several issues that we as a society are afraid to talk about for the fear of being judged, treated differently or even harassed by the media. One projection that stood out to me was the Tijuana projection that gave a deep insight on what young girls go through in their culture and the emotional pain each and one of them go through. These girls were brave enough to shared their stories with an audience that was interesting in listening to their pain and suffering behind a monument that gave them the courage to speak out.
Well I have seen a lot of film versions and no stage versions, and since I like to have fun I will be talking about the differences between "A Christmas Carol" and "A Muppet Christmas Carol". Now besides the Muppets I would say the movie is very accurate, from the costume designs, to the story. They even add direct quotes from the book sometimes, but with every adaptations some changes were made here and there. Of course they had to cut some material out to make the movie a certain time, and they had to make the content a little more enjoyable for their modern audiences so they made the dialog a bit more "with the times". They also added some more personal choices like adding musical numbers which I find is very fitting for the story.
I do not like historical movies, but I am very enjoyed to watch it. The film effects, such as screen and music and storytelling made me feel more exciting about watching the movie. When I learned about the Western Civilization in class, I did not quite understand the battle of Thermopylae. I felt difficulty to understand in identifications and story. However, after watching this movie, I could understand the Sparta story as well.
I think it might even be when Ian realizes he likes Wanderer. This shows why many quotes the director cut out were essential to the movie. There was not much emotion in the movie. In the movie, they spent most of the time making out. In the book they described it so that you could imagine yourself as that character and feel what they were feeling.
“Why did they all leave?” (Mcbride, Pg225) said James Mcbride. James is the author and character in his memoir “The Color of Water”.
