BLOG:  Art and the range of perspectives:  (last uber blog entry)

1 • Find a piece that has strong FORMAL qualities:  Line, color, shape, texture etc.  Choose one of these qualities that this work screams out and tell me (in a few sentences) why this work’s formal qualities are its greatest strength.  Give me your reaction – positive or negative (and be persuasive). Does its form carry over the piece?  Is beauty enough?

2 • Find a piece that’s content is its strongest quality – perhaps stronger than the actual physical piece itself. Tell me about a paragraph about the work and then give me your reaction – positive or negative (and be persuasive).  Does its content carry over the piece?  Is thought enough?

3• Find a piece that lacks both formal and content qualities to you and why.  Why is this work just such a let down to you?

4• Find a piece that carries both the formal and content qualities that you desire in a work and tell me why.

5.  FINALLY - -Chose a Piece that by seeing this work – perhaps changed your view of what art is.  It changed your perspective, taught you something new, or made you re-think what art can be.  Even better – a piece of art that made you so itchy to make work - you couldn’t hold still.  Something that inspired you to do something new.
