Re: PROJECT: COMMUNICATION IN ANIMALS

Gloria Serianae (Loise) ·
I think that animals communicate by using a variety of signs like sounds or movement. such signing are considered complex enough to be called form of language as its different from humans because humans produce entirely new combination of words. its an interesting topic even I didn't knew about that....cant wait to check on your next post...

Re: PROJECT: COMMUNICATION IN ANIMALS

This is quite an interesting inquiry topic and I really like the direction your project is taking and the research that you are putting up. From all the means of communication that you have worked on since you started this project, which one do you think is the most superior? which one is the most common? Is there a relationship in the mechanisms of communication within animals of close taxonomic relationship? It would be really interesting if you tried and looked into some of those...

Good job in doing this research,you have so put across and well displayed your research.Is there a chance genetics can be connected with the ways animals communicate?Thanks for inquiring on this I have learnt a lot
Comment

Re: PROJECT: COMMUNICATION IN ANIMALS

This is really interesting because their are so many different animals that you can look into. You could also look into the opposite, why animals that have a mouth don't use it? In animals it isn't really the mouth that makes the sound, but the vocal cords. Do different animals vocal cords work differently. Can't wait to see what else you find. Good Luck!

Re: PROJECT:COMMUNICATION IN ANIMALS

Hi there: this sounds like a very good focus and I think the question is a much better question for inquiry. At my school, we have a saying "The better the question; the better the learning."

Re: PROJECT:COMMUNICATION IN ANIMALS

You seem to have a really clear idea of what you want to do, Amos, which is nice to see. I wonder if considering olfactory communication in animals would be helpful? Olfactory communication revolves around chemical signals and scents, like urine, sweat, or saliva. Mammals especially seem to use this method of communication quite frequently, and a lot of the time they do it subconsciously. Perhaps you could tie in this concept when you discuss the sense of smell? Here is a resource to get you...

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

Re: Inquiry Question

Great idea. There's a reason why murals are constantly seen through the entire art history, from the Stone Age, barock frescos, and graffiti today....they are a powerful and strong kind of art. The idea with the photos, is not just modern, it also represents an entire major from the school. I'm so excited to follow the process. Keep it up! This is awesome.

Re: How Does Public Art Affect a Community?

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.

Re: How Does Public Art Affect a Community?

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!!

Re: How Does Public Art Affect a Community?

Desi Chek (Alumni-LFAS) ·
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?
Comment

Re: Inquiry Question

Michelle Ciolfitto (Mentor) ·
Very organized plan and research. Is there any benefit to having a baseline set of opinions? i.e. to determine the impact of art in public spaces, might you survey the community before the project is started to gage how they think art will affect the space itself or them personally? Survey questions must not lead the participants to a particular answer though - be careful in your question design if you opt to do this.

Re: Inquiry Question

Wow I love this idea! Photography is a really powerful art form when done correctly, and I think this is a great way to spread awareness about different issues concerning the environment and other different topics. Good luck!
Comment

Re: Inquiry Question

Wow this is really cool! Whenever I walk through parts of a school that have murals, it immediately 1) Makes the school look brighter and 2) Inspires people and makes people think about the meaning behind it. Same with driving through down town Vancouver, especially the more urban spaces. When you drive through, there are so many beautiful murals to catch your eye. I think what you are doing is great, keep up the good work!

Re: Sharing Indigenous Culture

Flora Xia (Alumni-LFAS) ·
Do you think that indigineous culture and individual identity is as important today as it was half a century ago? I would say that coorporate identity will surpass nationality at a certain point. Saying that you prefer Apple or Android can say more about you personallyt than if you were from Canada or America. As a race we are moving towards an intensely globalized culture. Do you think the sacrifice of indigenous cultures is worth the prize of this 'oneness'?

Re: Sharing Indigenous Culture

Bryn Hutchinson (Alumni) ·
So, looking into this a tiny bit, I found the dictionary definition of 'indigenous', provided by Merriam-Webster: "Produced, growing, living, or occurring naturally in a particular region or environment." So, I suppose, technically everyone born in Canada is, in fact, indigenous to Canada. Recently, I also read a short essay by Chief Dan George (admittedly not by choice, but by Sachar's choice) based around letting go of purely First Nations culture, and integrating his native culture in...

Since his action of giving his life for the Hive is the pinnacle of the story, do you have any ideas as to what the situation will be to facilitate this? I know natural disaster, but what will cause him to need to sacrifice his life?

Re: Hive Mind (Story Update)

Bryn Hutchinson (Alumni) ·
So, first of all, to address the caste system, a contradiction arises. Collectivism and, by extension communism, in its purest form is supposed to function as the complete opposite, at least in Marxism-Leninism. However, the Marxist/Leninist model does not work when talking about Hymenopterans (Wasps, etc.) or most colonial/eusocial animals for that matter. A rather infamous caste system, one that may work for your film, is that of the Chamorro people of Guam, an island in the West Pacific.

Great project, I actually did one on poaching last year, so if you have any questions, feel free to ask. I would love to help. Just wondering, but what exactly is your inquiry question? Are you concentrating just on the Ol Pejeta Conservancy, or just on Kenya or in other countries as well? It's important to narrow down a search to a specific place, as situations are different for each country. It's also important to narrow down a search to a specific animal, as the situations surrounding...

I love how involved this project is. Not only are you reaching out to surrounding communities in order to complete your research, but you are actually partnering up with the Ol Pejeta Conservancy and aiding them in this massive issue. Researching the societal attitudes towards poaching is the first step to creating awareness. Your survey is also very detailed, with ample space for the individual's opinions. Looking forward to seeing how your research has gone in the future

Your plan was executed with such grace Elinor! I believe by giving people an eye into what other indigenous cultures have to offer there has been a lot of understanding and respect for one another. Unfortunately I wasn't able to attend the conference but with all the information you have shared over the semester I have felt very involved with everything you have been doing. I can't wait to see where you take this project next or if you find new questions from all your new found answers!

According to my understanding the important of learning ingenious culture is to know how people live and their regular activities. In Kenya many communities used to eat Ugali which is our daily food in our life.Ugali is the maize flour mixed with water.

Re: Experimental Music

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!!!!
Comment

Re: Experimental Music

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 .

Re: The Burn

Former Member ·
I agree that not many people give thought to this question. Music is so powerful to setting a mood or theme but is also something that can be easily ignored, especially in movies because your focus is on the graphics. What many people may not realize, is that the graphics would not portray the same emotions without the music that accompanies it.

Re: Hive Mind

Paige: This was a concept learned by humans after the destruction of the Earth. Adaptation to a perfectly functioning society felt like a better choice for the fate of humanity. Desi: Thank you! I think some brief backstories will be explained but I don't want all of this film to be backstory so there will probably only be enough information in the film for the audience to grasp the general concept.
Comment

Re: Hive Mind

Paige Hunter (LFAS-Alumni) ·
Interesting how instead of modifying the new planet to suit their needs, the humans modify themselves to suit the planet. Would this be because of a lesson learned by the human race after the destruction of Earth, or was that just something that happened to fit into the plot/concept better?

Wow! this is very impressive and very well thought out, well done! I really love the theme of rebirth as well as the discussion of collectivism vs individualism.

Or are you planning to just introduce this new race of wasp-human hybrids on their new planet from the start?

Re: Broaden your Thinkin'

Eunice Lui (Alumni) ·
This is a really mind-opening thought. I've noticed that the biggest thing about each country and its history is the art that their ancestors leave behind. And because these traditional artifacts and dances, we are able to learn of their ways of living, important events, or even those who have lived. Great opinion!

Paige Hunter (LFAS-Alumni) ·
I could seriously do burns for all of your posts, you've got so many cool things to say! It's so cool that the students would perform a dance or song for you. I think that art definitely impacts AND enriches life, especially having gone to an arts school. I've noticed that having a passion (your major) in which to put your energy generally leaves you feeling more personally and generally satisfied, resulting in an overall more positive attitude.

This is an amazing topic. It has never really occured to me how much art influences everything in our lives, or how two cultures halfway around the planet from eachother could be so alike. Its great that you have first hand experience within both communitys instead of just spectating. Are you planning on studing all forms of art or focusing on one. I cant wait to see which paths your project takes.

Re: EFFECTS OF FEMALE GENITAL MUTILATION

There is plenty of research done by different people and organizations concerning female genital mutilation. The effects of FGM are diverse and can range from physical effects to psychological effects that in most cases are of negative consequence to the individual.

I think that the most important effect of this is psychological. It is defiantly hard to recover from traumatic experiences, let alone such of a traumatic experience that will effect the rest of your life. I think FGM is immoral due to the lack of concent from the victim. This procedure takes away many of the child's rights and freedoms before they have fully developed their body and their mind.
