This is a cool area of research you have.I was reading on a local paper and came across this article about mental illness even though not specifically schizophrenia. According to statistic detailed,more than 25% of Kenyans at some point in their lifetime had had a mental disorder.As a result,adoption of the Kenyan Health Mental policy 2015-2030 in a bid to shift attention to mental illnesses[a long neglected issue in Kenya]It feels good that schizophrenia issue is not neglected in Butterfly...
Hey Samuel, Thanks for sharing your information about Kenya's view on schizophrenia, I will totally look into that too. What is quite fascinating for me, even if its negative, but no mater at which place or country, I did schizophrenia research so far, that disease was not accepted by the society. To hear that from your view about Kenya again, makes me continuing research and posting, because I think it's at us to make a change.
I have been longing to know how public art affects people.I think you have a very interesting topic there.Trough your project i will be able to learn more.I'm looking forward to what you find out. Goodluck
This is a cool question of inquiry. Are you looking into different graffiti artist? Different places where graffiti is done? Look at graffiti and what it means? There are so many different things that you can look at. Good Luck!
Cool Inquiry! There can be a lot of controversy over graffiti, some find it beautiful and others look at is a destruction of public property (if it is graffiti on pubic property without permission that is). It may be interesting to look into the different views of graffiti and different forms of graffiti. Do you thing all graffiti is art? I look forward to your project .
Cool research! It's interesting to see how graffiti evolved from a way to mark territory to a way of expression. If there is one, what do you think is the most common message that is expressed through graffiti, and could it change from place to place?
Great question Lucy! One of the things you could do is look at how graffiti differs from culture to culture and integrate that into your question. Another is to see how to make something as "raw" as street art meaningful to the masses. Here is a link to help you: http://www.graffiti.org/faq/werwath/werwath.html
This is really cool research! I think your question is very interesting. Graffiti has changed a lot through the years people have been doing it, and I think that in different countries, the graffiti is different. Good luck with the rest of your project!
Great question. Graffiti is so important for the art movements today. It's the voice of political activists, those kind of artists which don't want to see their art hanging in a gallery. My favourite graffiti and street art artist is still Banksy. There's a great movie about him, called exit through the gift shop http://exitthroughthegiftshop.com/videos.html?reload but also a lot of documentaries on YouTube. Another favourite street art artist, is slinkachu. His art is so tiny, that we often...
Awesome inquiry,I also think there can be huge discussion on graffiti but I also think graffiti is also important to street artists and artists in general,I like street art more better and I have interest in them,keep up
This topic strikes so many ideas! In Graffiti is used to convey messages in society all the time. Through the history of America "Hoboglyphs" are used to help each other out. These vagabonds developed their own secret language to direct other hobos to food, water, or work – or away from dangerous situations. The Hobo Code helped add a small element of safety when traveling to new places. In todays society we still see hoboglyphs on trains and street walls in Vancouver, as homeless...
Lucy that's a great piece of work you have going there. Do you think you could look at these links as you work on your next post? Plus guys have done a lot of comments on your post, I would be great if you tried to integrate part of the advice and comments so we can get an even better next post. Again, good job! http://www.theguardian.com/wor...-vultures?CMP=twt_gu http://www.africanslumjournal....fiti-art-in-nairobi/ http://zurukenya.com/2014/03/2...rt-graffiti-culture/
This is so amazing! Your project is coming together and its so exciting that your giving us an inside look into the process. What do you plan to do with this "set" once you have completed your project?
I might be misunderstanding your question but metal is just a material like any other that can be used in art. It's like asking how important a tuba is to music, well it's pretty important depending on what kind of music you want to play
Your updates always keep me interested! What you are doing here is so cool and I really like how you make everything look realistic. I like to draw and occasionally paint so I'm not very experienced with this kind of art and that's why I think it's so interesting. Good luck!
Interesting topic. Will you be focusing on just photography, or all the arts? Also, I wonder how motives play into this. How do the reasons why an art display is put up affect the impact on community? I've always been curious about this. For instance, imagine two situations, situation A and situation B, where the painting is the same - say, a beautiful picture of nature. One is intended to inspire a greener lifestyle, and one is intended to help viewers find inner piece. In both situations,...
Thanks for the interest, Jessica. I think because we are photography majors, we will naturally gravitate towards photography in our research. I think art is very interesting because the viewers will often derive different meanings from it regardless of the intended purpose. I'm not sure if we will be delving into this topic thoroughly, but it is an interesting thing to consider.
I think that this is a very interesting topic! I know that public art affects people, but I don't know in what ways, so I'm looking forward to what you find! I think that positive art (like flowers, bright colours etc.) makes people happier and more positive. On the other hand, negative art (like graffiti, dark colours etc.) can make people upset. That is why I'm looking forward to what you find! Good luck!!
Thanks for your comment, Payton! It actually made me think about our inquiry question and wonder if we really know for a fact that art impacts people? So, maybe we should actually change our question. Why is art important, what does it contribute to society, has it ever changed society? What do you think?
That would be true, but I guess the question is: has human nature stayed the same? Honestly, I don't know much about art history, so I I don't know how informed by stance is, but I think that the messages art communicates has varied over the centuries due to popular opinion which has been influenced by historical events. I believe that humans have changed over time, and with that change has come changes in the messages our art communicates.
Art, especially visual art to some extent can be recognized as a silent language, whose impact is very profound if directed and presented in the correct way. The success of art as an avenue to bring change depends on how well the people viewing the art understand it and how accurate it is. Different people have different understandings of different arts and this may pose a big problem in passing a message to many people. All in all I believe that art if presented in a correct way, where the...
This is interesting. Art can be interpreted by everyone in different ways. Art can play a big role in peoples life it is a way to express emotions, and in these photos their expressions are very emphasized. How they posted they on places of conflict. To some people will see the person and think maybe we aren't so different, and some people might not want to see that and just consider it vandalism and it needs to be torn down. There is no one view on something, people will have their own...
Art is needed for a war. Bombes and guns seem so brutal, but in the end it is the art that brings the people on the battlefield. For example, both world wars wouldn't happen the same way without propaganda and visualization. Even if you can't read, you can understand art. Anyways, so if art can be used on a negative way in a conflict, why shouldn't it work the same on a positive way? What I'm trying to say is, that I think especially in a brutal conflict, art can make a change. It's just a...
Once, mankind found itself in a much simpler time. In the ancient world, things changed very little over the course of several generations. While the people of this ancient world certainly did not know as much as we do today, they had the opportunity to experiment and refine their techniques over the course of hundreds of years. These techniques included, everything from spiritual connections to healing. As they did these things over and over, they set the prototype for how the mind works at...
Sophie,I like every bit of what your are doing.I think art is the most effective medium as culture is concern.I mean,if people before us never practiced it,we could still in dark on some issues about culture.We get to know more about culture through art. It's through art that you learnt about First Nations in Canada and which you're planning on passing to your siblings back in Germany and they'll probably pass it to their children and by doing so,the past culture of Canada will be known not...
I know literally nothing about dance except what I learned in primary school dance classes (which I have long forgotten) so it was interesting to read your burn, especially knowing you yourself are not a dancer. It was interesting to see your perspective on it.
I don't know much about graffiti, but are there not forms of graffiti that focus on actual pictures as apposed to lettering? Also, it might be useful to consider the differences between street art and graffiti. Here are some links to some interesting websites: http://www.herron.iupui.edu/bl...reet-art-vs-graffiti http://banksy.co.uk
Awesome research! I really like your point about "if a tag is put up over another writers tag or piece, its extremely disrespectful." I found this really interesting. I never thought that there were any kinds of rules for this sort of thing. I like how you have research on the different styles of graffiti. I think this is such a cool topic I am excited to see what you come up with next.
With compassion, I think its somthig we are wired and born to do. Take love for example, we cannot be artificially programed to love someone/something. I think emotions such as love, compassion, empathy and gentleness has to come from within.
I was just reading a blog based from a book called "More Than Footprints". A huge topic on the site was if volunteering time and building relationships with these young kids, than leaving completely and cutting ties with them caused more harm than good. I'm interested to see what comes from this, hard not to go straight to a personal place.
I think any PSA film, regardless of its medium has the possibility to draw attention. It would be more about finding a way for the audience to connect/care about environmental issues. You might want to look into advertising psychology if you want to learn more about it.
I think that this is a better and more understandable question than your last one. I didn't really get what your question was, or what it was leading to before, but now its much clearer. I have never thought about the effects that the volunteers have on people after they leave. Looking forward to seeing where your new question leads.
I think this is a really cool idea. Putting ideas into the form of entertainment, which is sad to say but it will make people more interested. People would be aware of what's going on and it can educate kids who don't think about these things. As long as the info isn't put into text to discretely, otherwise they might not even realize the big idea. Where as if you add it in to harshly they might see it as purely educational and won't want to watch it.
I think animation is an especial form of PSA as it effectively conveys a message in an amusing manner. Awareness is made all the more impacting when it is intertwined with a beauteous score, colorful imagery, and intriguing setting. We've all, hopefully, had the experience of witnessing a moving piece of film/animation/documentary that forever imbues our minds with certain facts.
I think this is a super cool idea, and I really like how it ties the two projects together. I think that even if people do see it as entertainment, it will still be having awareness raised about it. There are many different ways to do this, and I think that it could work if it's done in the right way.
I love that idea Jacob! I'm really excited to see what you do with that. Just some clarification - do you mean that you're looking into if it is worth it to create a work of art connected to commercial uses? Or are you looking into whether people care about it with the same intensity as a commercially connected work of art? I like your idea, but the question seems vague... Good luck!!!!
Interesting Idea! Musicians (most artists really) these days often worry more about what they will get out of the song than the song itself, do you think this makes the song less enjoyable or more enjoyable? Why? I look forward to your project and what you find out .
I actually perceive some of the shades of green differently. For example, I associate lighter tones of green with sickness and puke and hospitals. I associate darker tones of green with peace, harmony, and nature. I wonder if hospitals using the light green colour has had an influence on perceiving light green as anything but peaceful and soothing. Can society's general association of the tones of green change depending on our surroundings? It might be interesting to conduct a survey asking...
