The Rauschenberg Art Piece - At the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Rauschenberg art piece was definitely one form of art I once did not consider to be art. The artwork is not exactly a painting to me but certainly an illustration of something that is connected to real day to day objects. It was created by the artist Robert Rauschenberg in 1954. It is oil on canvas painting which is eighty by ninety six in size and the materials used are oil, paper, fabric and metal which are all on wood. It looks quite messy, with materials like newspapers, cut out fabrics, the colors’ drips and how they are splashed around....   [tags: Art] 923 words

Piazza Piece by John Crowe Ransom - Poetry is a condensed form of language. It says very much in very few words. The ways that make possible this “linguistic economy” are many.

Analysis of Musical Piece - Analysis of Musical Piece I decided to use this piece for my appraisal for a number of reasons. This piece was released in 2004 by a band called Keane; it was the first single by this band, and the single that made them famous. This song is typical for Keane. It has block chords to create a pulsing beat. This seems to be a trademark for Keane’s music. The pianist uses mainly block chords, to create the feeling that the song is pulsing, and I decided I could do this easily with my left hand, so my right hand could be free to play the melody line....   [tags: Papers] 1001 words

Pearson (2001, p. 101) defines hero’s as “fearless protagonists who realise their own special power and go on to take great personal risks in order to change their reality. In day-to-day life, these powerful archetypes provide a structure that can release the ability of ordinary people to rise to challenges, take risks, break rules, and transform their lives”....   [tags: Literature Plot Writing] 1764 words

Poe's Fall of The House of Usher Essay: A Psychological Piece - The Fall of the House of Usher as a Psychological Piece This essay examines "The Fall of the House of Usher" from the viewpoint that none of the events really happened -- or if they did, were exaggerated by the fear felt by the characters.  The essay proposes that the action took place in the mind of the narrator and discusses the dream imagery present in the story and how this supports this theory.         While discussing "The Fall of the House of Usher," Thompson investigates the idea that the story is not really a truthful tale - that is, a re-telling of events that the narrator experienced - but is rather the result of a "mutual hysteria of the narrator and Roderick Usher."  Basically, he asserts that the narrator and Usher are both so filled with fear that they imagined the events, or else there is a logical explanation for the things that happened while the narrator stayed at the House of Usher....   [tags: Fall House Usher Essays] 1059 words

Rip Van Winkle: A Revolutionary Piece in Fairy Tale Clothing - When read at first glance, Washington Irving's "Rip Van Winkle" seems to be a tale of a lazy man who just wanted some peace and quiet, and ended up with almost too much of it.

Irving wrote "Rip Van Winkle" to show the world the struggle of the newly independent Americans trying to cope with life after English rule.

image as text - Image as Text Response Critical Response Art by its very nature has the tendency to be labeled either “good” or “bad”. However there is no bad art, only art that has failed to connect with a viewer. To broadly label art as either good or bad is hypocritical, how could a Picasso be compared to a Rembrandt. The truth is it can’t, and that’s the deceptiveness of art in that it seems on the surface to be so easily criticized when in reality it’s a complicated process to undertake.
