The human perception of life is one consent thought that runs through one’s mind on a daily bases. The perception of the everyday person is influenced by their unique surroundings. These surrounds can also be influenced by that person’s culture and diversity. This is what make all of us different, the difference from yourself and others is your unique diversity and your culture you follow. Different cultures and diversity is what makes our great world so different and uncommon. Diversity and culture playa huge role in some people’s perceptions of life and what they thing is right and wrong. There is no right or wrong when it comes to your faith and or your decision making. The acceptance of different cultures and diversity falls on us as people, you have the right to follow the masses or follow what you think is right. This has been big issue over the last few years, especially with issues such as gay marriage, legalization of marijuana and even the separation of church and state. The government and the media have their own agenda when it comes to the foster of acceptance and culture. I feel that if the media and government would allow different cultures an opportunity to be seen and studied then we would learn so much about other people and their perceptions on the world. The world is an evolving and changing place, we need to be able to adapt and accept change. The acceptance of different lifestyles would open the world to more happiness and influences. The world has become an every judgmental place and it creates a strong distance between equality of others. The media has always found ways to find a stereotype or judge others based on what they feel will get more people to tune in. These stereotypes give people a common and usually a quick understanding of…...

Appreciation of Rmb?

...These surpluses are primarily with the US and Europe. Due to these factors, the exchange rate policy of China has attracted a great deal of attention in academic, industrial and political arenas. With the emerging China economy as the largest reserve country and the largest “world factory”, the Chinese renminbi (RMB) exchange rate has been the centre of ongoing debate over the source of global current account imbalance, especially with the United States (Sato, Shimizu, Shrestha & Zhang, 2012). Since the direct peg to the dollar was ended in 2005, the RMB has continued its appreciation about 6% per year and enhanced flexibility over the past 7 years. However, appreciation pressure on the RMB remains intense and it is still debatable whether and to what extent the current level of the RMB exchange rate is overvalued or undervalued. Issues Political Influences One of the main reasons for the appreciation pressure on the RMB is the US’ claim that the Chinese government has made the value of its currency artificially low by manipulating the exchange rate. The weakened RMB in turns spurs imports from China and undercuts exports to China, contributing to a widening trade gap between China and the US, Japan and the Euro countries. This in turn causes job losses in manufacturing in those countries. Empirical tests show that there is an existence of a significant long-run relationship between the RMB/dollar exchange rate and the US trade deficit with China, where a depreciation......

...Individual 5 Art Appreciation Final Paper Derick Stevenson Rough Draft Introduction Art has been a thing of the past which has also been brought into the future. Everyone loves the great images and structures that the artists portray in their art work. The three art work that I have chosen are Impressionate works of art by Paul Gauguin, Vincent Van Gogh, and Edward March. This paper will include the description of the works including the styles, a summary of the artists’ personal philosophies of art as well as trends and schools of thought in the art world at the time and in the place the artist was working. Summary Description of the works /style The painting called the “Vision after the Sermon” which is a symbolist of art. Pauls’ used the dropping of a brushstroke called “cezannist” that included matte fields of persuasively movement and non-naturalistic colors. Those colors express the supreme visions of “Breton” as the farmer women’s. . (Kang, 2011) This work is also considered as Gauguin’s definite departure of naturalism that controls impressionism. His colors are without gradients, and it’s contrary to the traditions of the Renaissance. In this works he also ignored the rules of perspective. Because he made the figures on the foreground too large in relation to Jacob and the Angel. He also blocks the view of the wrestlers which according to the tradition should have been the central element of the whole composition. This painting was rejected by the...

...Unit 3 Individual Project Art Appreciation HUMA 205 June 25, 2013 Abstract I will attempt to compare and contrast two pieces of art work from the renaissance period. Out of our textbook I chose a piece by Masaccio, The Holy Trinity. The piece of art I chose from a website is from Leonardo da Vinci called Madonna and Child. Both pieces of art are masterpieces of the early renaissance period. Renaissance Paintings and the Artists For many Europeans the renaissance was a period of achievement and worldwide exploration. It was a time of discovery. A time of new and renewed understanding that changed the medieval times and laid the foundation for modern society. Masaccio became the first major painter of the Italian Renaissance. He greatly influenced the art of painting in the renaissance. He moved Italian painting away from the idealizations of Gothic art and presenting his work as a more profound, natural, and humanist world. The Holy Trinity was the last painting he did and is considered one of his greatest masterpieces. Masaccio constructed his masterpiece with simplicity and naturalistic, three dimensionality. (The Holy Trinity by Masaccio, nd) The Holy Trinity was one of the first paintings Masaccio used the linear perspective. Linear perspective is a mathematical system used for creating three dimensional shapes and figures on a flat surface. He used perspective to make the illusion of three dimensions. The perspective lines draw the......

The second portion of this paper will give a description of eight types of art which are Painting, Sculpture, Architecture, Photography, Printmaking, Conceptual Art, Installation Art, and Performance Art.

...two of twenty-two definitions defined on the online dictionary. The two definitions were selected because it related to the subject at-hand. Merriam-Webster online defines art as the conscious use of skill and creative imagination especially in the production of aesthetic objects; also as works so produced. Artists use paintings as a form of communication; whether the painting is elaborate or just a mere scribble, it is something that is illustrated by someone to tell a story or show emotions. Art is delivered in eight different forms. “Painting” Painting is defined as the work produced. One historical painting that always stuck out in my mind is the Mona Lisa. Mona Lisa is what I consider art, when I realized that I was taking Art Appreciation to obtain my degree, this was the first work of art that came to mind. Leonardo DaVinci exemplifies what art is and will ever be. Even though it is a mere painting of a woman, the history behind the artist plays a major role of the painting and my selection. (Museum of Science, 2010) “Sculpture” The second form of artwork is sculptures. Sculptures are art of carving, modeling, welding, or otherwise producing figurative or abstract works of art in three dimensions, as in relief, intaglio, or in the round. (Dictionary.com, 2010). Who would ever thought to use car part to create such as a unique exhibit? On that note, I choice Alastair Gibson’s Carbon Art Inspired Sculpture for the sculpture example (Carbon Art 45).

...Art Appreciation Question 1. Analyze this painting by addressing these three formal elements and terms describe the palette, shape and Space. Be sure to identify the perspective system employed in this painting The palette, or range of colors used in this painting, have a more neutral tone. The combination of forest greens, golden yellows, faint blues, and grays, combined with the lack of any bright colors, gives the painting a more neutral look. The painting employs several triangle shapes, which can be seen at the apex of the trees and the two mountains in the posterior of the landscape. The spacing of the painting is both three-dimensional and deep. As one looks into the painting, it feels as if one could walk into the painting and move into the landscape. The painting has depth, as it feels like one can “see for miles” into the painting. This painting certainly employs an aerial perspective system, as the clouds, haze of the atmosphere, and vantage point all add depth to the space. Question 2. Explain how the artist uses color create space. (In answering this question, be sure to identify if the compositional space is two dimensional or three dimensional) Also articulate how the artist uses color to convey light and rhythm. The artist uses the varying colors on the red background to create the perception of three-dimensional space. The contrast of the dark dots and the golden dots on the red background makes the painting appear as if the red is a type of......

...Art Appreciation Emily Yost March 12, 2011 Art is a form of work which encompasses so many things. You can have art that is from the same Era, but yet be very different. Art can consist of some of the same things which you can find in common with another time period. I want to try and take a look at three individual pieces of art belonging to the same style and era. I will then try to evaluate these works from tool s that I have learned. I have chosen the Baroque style of art. This style is known for its use of drama and high use of theatrical methods. It was a creation of the Catholic Church (Sayre, H. M. 2007, 477). This style of art developed and bloomed in Europe somewhere around the early 17th to mid 18th century. It has its emphases up on drama, swirling forms and very intricate and elaborate ornamentation. The calling of St. Mathew is one of the most magnificent masterpieces there is. This was painted by Michelangelo Mersi Da Caravaggio . The painting reached completion in 1599-1600. In this painting there appears to be a single window in the foreground. Not much light happens to be filtering through the panes (http://www.albany.edu/scj/jcjpc/vol6is3/st-matthew-calling.html). There appears to be some kind of table at which five individuals are sitting at. One appears to be looking at money, another like they just sat down. The outlook of the room appears dull and very gloomy. To the right of this art there appear to be two men.......

...Kayla Demel Art Appreciation 103 Online 04/1915 Comparison of Wendell Castle’s Cavalcade and Harry Bertoia’s Sounding Sculpture Comparison of Wendell Castle’s Cavalcade and Harry Bertoia’s Sounding Sculpture The artwork Cavalcade by Wendell Castle compared with Harry Bertoia’s sounding sculpture were designed for different purposes but both use elements of art to emphasis the meanings of each. I found these sculptures at the Wichita Art Museum. I selected these two because I found sculptures very interesting. The Cavalcade was made by grouping different shapes together to defy gravity and it grabbed my attention because it did not look correct because the ball was off certain and shouldn’t have been stable. The Sounding sculpture grabbed my attention because it was made to make music by many different bars hitting each other. The Cavalcade sculpture made by Wendell Castle is mahogany, lacewood, poplar, cooper, and gold leaf. The dimensions are 53 ½ by 21 ¼ by 17 1/2. This was made in 1989. There are many different shapes that has it owns color and identity. It wasn’t supposed to be symmetric because it makes a unique attack on gravity. The base of this piece is a blue green color and then a black longer piece that looks like it could be a vase is on top of that. The long black piece is not straight up it is slightly leaning to the left. Then there is a gold platter looking shape that is holding a ball off-center. I think that the artist is trying to......

...make up the group. For example, a group of two musicians is known as a duo; a group of three, a trio; four, a quartet; and so on. The largest music ensemble is arguably the orchestra, which can gather over 100 instrumentalists. Vocal ensemble Vocal ensemble Instrumental ensemble Structure of Music Introduction An essential element in all the arts, the concept of form is associated with shape, organization, structure, pattern, relationships, coherence, and placement; and ultimately, with questions of proportion and balance. In music, form refers to how sound is organized in time; it helps us understand how durations, pitches, timbres, and volume add up to a coherent whole. Regardless of a piece's simplicity or complexity, our appreciation and enjoyment of it is closely related to our capacity to understand its form and feel the emotional message it conveys. Traditionally, musicians have used unity, variety, repetition, and contrast to shape sound into a variety of pre-established form templates that have proven successful over time. Naturally, the simpler the composition, the easier it is to grasp its form. Working songs, folks songs, inspirational hymns, marches, and pop songs are all types of music whose familiarity is based, to a large extent, on their simple form. Grasping the form of longer, more complex compositions, as those found in art music—whether by Beethoven, Chopin, John Adams, or Chick Corea—requires more practice and focused attention. In such......

Dance Appreciation

...Dear Pen Pal, How are you doing today? My name is Cole Faierstain and I am here to tell you about the reasons behind my interest in dance appreciation. At first when it was time to pick all of my classes I was looking for a class that fit my schedule and was flexible. One of my good friends told me there was this class that was interesting and a good class for what I was looking for. She said that Dance Appreciation was a class that was flexible enough and interesting enough for me to take along with my heavy course load. Therefore I decided that this class was going to be very important for my studies this year. Some of my friends decided to take the class as well this semester so it makes this class interesting because I have a lot of people to talk about the information about. My mother and my sister are avid dancers and they have been dancing for their whole lives. When I was younger I always had gone to all of their dancing comeptitions and performances and I loved the way everyone competed, looked, and acted out on the dancing floor. My sister was very good at ballet which got me very curious when learning about ballet in this class. In middle school I had a dance unit in physical education which broadened my horizon of the dance world. We learned all these types of dancing such as the two step, ballet, hip-hop, and some barn dances. All of these dances were really great to learn about and interesting to actually do with other people. I also participated in a......

...12MIS 5201240008 赵尔东 ‘Interstellar’ Appreciation Interstellar opens on Earth in the distant future, as Mother Nature is waging war on humanity. Famine is widespread, and all of mankind's resources are now dedicated to farming in a desperate fight for survival. A former NASA pilot and engineer named Cooper (Matthew McConaughey) has become a homesteader in order to support his teenage son Tom (Timothee Chalamet) and 10-year-old daughter Murph (Mackenzie Foy). Unfortunately, even that begins to look like a futile endeavor after a sandstorm ravages their close-knit community. Meanwhile, a seemingly supernatural mystery begins to unfold when the "ghost" that dwells in Murph's room sends her a mysterious set of coordinates -- which lead the curious father/daughter duo to a clandestine underground base housing the remnants of NASA. There, renowned physicist Professor Brand (Michael Caine) has been working with a team of astronauts and scientists to find a new planet capable of sustaining human life. Brand quickly persuades Cooper to pilot a mission that will hopefully carry the seeds of human life to a habitable planet in another galaxy. First of all, it is incredibly beautiful to watch. The way Nolan decided to show some scenes really remind me of2001 A Space Odyssey. We can feel the talent of Christopher Nolan, just by looking at the way it is filmed. The techniques he used contribute to create that visual environment in a believable way. The sound environment is......
