Critical and creative reflection

Module 10

Visual art:

Various artistic forms in our everyday lives

Activity 1:

To identify and classify various artistic forms in our everyday lives

[lo 2.5]

  • In Modules 1 and 2 you came into contact with art elements like form , line , tone nuances , colour and composition .In Module 3 the emphasis is on theme , topic and scale of work of art, at home , in the community and in public places .

STEP 1

As we are surrounded by a variety of art objects, statues and other works, it is important to be able to identify these various visual forms of art.

Complete the following table:

Examples Of Works Of Art In Our Everyday Lives

At home In the community In public places
.................................... ..................................... ...........................................
.................................... ..................................... ...........................................
.................................... ..................................... ...........................................

STEP 2

Study your completed table and circle all the items that can be linked to decoration and then underline all the items that have a SPECIFIC FUNCTION or which can be used for a specific purpose. Some items will meet with both requirements and will therefore be circled as well as underlined.

STEP 3

Choose five of the underlined functional works of art in the three columns. Group them together according to the five themes below (make sure that you choose at least one from each column):

Usual / functional works of art

Theme Works of Art
ADVERTISEMENT / PROMOTION
INFORMATION
LUXURY / COMFORT
ENTERTAINMENT / RELAXATION
PERSONAL USE

STEP 4

Now you must study the scale of the works of art, i.e. the size of the works of art. Make a list of ten works of art, chosen from your first table. Arrange these items from the smallest to the biggest. Number 1 must be the smallest and number 10 the biggest:

List of works of art according to scale

Scale from Small to Big Work of Art
Smallest 1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
8.
9.
Biggest 10.
  • Now you must write a paragraph of 60 – 80 words in your learner journal (or on loose pages that you can add after this one) in which you explain why each of the items which you have listed, was made to a specific scale. Look at the link between the work of art and its size.

Activity 2:

To improve or decorate the environment

[lo 2.5]

  • Study illustration A below. Use colour pastels or wax crayons and/or coloured chalk to improve or decorate the environment in illustration B. Use your first table for inspiration.

Assessment

s.
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.

what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
Damian
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
