Keen observer of human movements, Francesco Jodice provides an atlas of behavior penetrates the spirit of the place." (European House of Photography, 2006)

The technique of timing and anticipation is the most important technique for Jodice with this picture because of his desire to keep the focus on one fixed point. He had to wait for the right time to capture the subjects as well as figure out ahead of time which ons to wait for. Perhaps in his thinking he sought to search for people with similar colored tops. The extended version of the "crossing" pictures shows a woman with a dark blue tank top similar to the "25" man. And the man in white is far off to the end distanced from everyone else.

In photographic situations such as in the photo, where one has minimal to no control or influence of any of the elements in the…… [Read More]

Galactic Center in Infrared

Words: 508 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 30822257

Galactic Photo

This image is of the galactic center, which is the center of the Milky Way. The photograph is taken using infrared light, which changes the appearance of dust particles so that they do not obscure the image. As Wright (2003) points out, the universe is filled with dust, which tends to block the light being emitted from light-giving objects like stars. The composition of most galactic dust includes carbon, silicon, and oxygen (Wright, 2003). The dust can grow in molecular clouds, and are created in the atmosphere of red-giant stars that are cooling off (Nemiroff & Bonnell, 2006).

Infrared allows the exposure of rays that are beyond what the naked eye can see. These rays are beyond or below the red part of the color spectrum, which is why the technology is called "infrared." Below infrared rays are microwave and radio waves. Although not visible to the human…… [Read More]

Revisiting Erving Goffman

Words: 928 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 78583013


Applying Goffman to Modern Advertisements

Goffman and Gender Commercials

Goffman contends that the selection of commercial pictures in advertisements is intentional and serves a specific agenda that is not in service to consumers' well-being or natural interests. He argues this facet of culture is ripe for analysis with respect to topics such as sexuality, gender, power, the means of production, and social reality, among others. His strongest assertions concerns how analysis of the selection of commercial pictures reveals keen insights when comparing them to behavioral practices as experience in everyday interactions. Goffman grounds his hypotheses in concrete methodological practices, with primary aims to locate and define discovery, proof, and presentation. Grounding is his research in established methodology keeps opposition from arguing that his findings and conclusions are wild-eyed, paranoid theories that undermine American culture or the American way of life. He claims that the kind of analysis he proposes…… [Read More]

Indian Architecture

In the photographs provided, the building's architectural context has quite obviously changed over time.

The oldest-looking photo of the three shows little development in the surrounding area, while the placement of trees on the building's immediate ground looks artful.

The other two photos are more recent, as one shows subsequent development in the area behind the building.

One give a glimpse of a large white building whose twentieth-century style does not sit entirely harmoniously with the Victorian-seeming construction of the building under consideration -- and also shows broken windows visible in the main central tower.

The other photo displays recent blight and disrepair on a smaller building -- advertising posters, missing bricks and roof tiles -- although it's not clear whether this smaller building is part of the larger complex around the building under consideration.

One other noteworthy bit of context can be glimpsed in the oldest of…… [Read More]

Vermont Social and Natural Commentary in Black and White

Words: 658 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 6653548

Vermont Photos

Vermont's rich cultural and environmental history is captured visually in black and white still photography. Each of these images offers a distinct glimpse or glance at Vermont life. Some images portray non-human subjects ranging from animals to landscapes to architecture. Several are macro, or close up, shots of Vermont's minutia. None of the images are portraits, which is significant because it allows the viewer to perceive Vermont without the added lens or filter of social life.

An image of a Pullman Car appears in green and fills the frame. The composition suggests movement, as the horizontal lines of the rail car and the tracks beneath it all move in the same directions. The original Pullman Palace cars were decorated ornately on the inside. Yet the viewer is invited to look inside at the big green Pullman Sunbeam, which rolled into Manchester in Spring of 2012 from South Carolina.…… [Read More]

photo novellas to test the creative aptitude of nurses working in oncology and palliative care. Researchers asked how they defined spirituality and were told to select between four to six photographs out of a photo novella they captured from their work in the field to represent these feelings. The participants in the study included five female oncology and palliative nurses, all working within Atlantic Canada. Researchers claim that "these specialty areas of nursing were selected because of the life-threatening nature of patients' illnesses, end of life issues, and the associated need for spiritual care" (Burke & Evans, 2011). Essentially, nurses within palliative and oncology contexts do often help patients with spiritual care as patients prepare to deal with a variety of end of life issues. Ultimately, the primary purpose was then to test the spiritual aptitude of these nurses in a qualitative context, while also including an exploration of how…… [Read More]

The primary target market for Facebook is between the ages of 22-34. The secondary target market is between 35-54.

The strengths are that it is addictive, has a clean layout is open platform and is a real-world network (unlike Myspace). It has relatively few weaknesses, other than low revenue per user. Threats are other social networking sites, instant messenger services and photo sharing sites. There are opportunities in new markets and for a more fully-integrated platform.

Through our ads we want to efficiently reach our target market so they become more aware of Facebook. We want to build familiarity with the site in a market that has not traditionally understood the benefits of social networking sites. The goals are more sign-ups and an increase in the frequency of visits to the site.

Facebook is operating on the communication and social segment of the it industry. In this sense, it is offering a multitude of services to its clients, which include, besides the actual chat or forum-like services, photo and video sharing and, increasingly, the capacity to generate an entirely customized and personalized page for the user. From this point-of-view, we can identify primary competitors, competing in the social segment of the industry, but also secondary competitors, who focus on partial components, such as photo or video sharing.

In terms of the primary segment, the most important competitor that Facebook has is Myspace. Myspace has successfully benefited from being launched earlier so as to attract an additional 30 million users, ranking at 100 million users before Facebook's 70 million. Bebo and Blackplanet also provide important competition on the primary market, however, the ain competition is between Facebook and Myspace. Both sites try…… [Read More]

At the same time, they are also the greatest consumers of Internet products, so disseminating the product in an online environment, not only through Snappysnaps, but also through its own website.

The only potentially negative aspect of this fact is the idea that this category of consumers does not have a discretionary income, but is rather constrained by what money their parents are offering them. Another potentially negative element to be considered is the fact that the product competes with other teenage products with social impact.

A distinct other group of consumers are the teenagers' parents, from two different perspectives. First, they are likely to encourage an activity for the teenagers such as this business is. Second, they…… [Read More]

Being old, she has spent a lifetime learning the intricacies of life, providing her with priceless wisdom. All this wisdom however has not prevented her from becoming a beggar in her old age. The girls in the picture are just beginning to be admitted into society, whereas society has finished with the old woman in the story, and thus she sits outside and begs where she only receives money from those not living in the vicinity.

This brings me to the connection points between the photo and the story. One important connection is the fact that the setting of the photo is an industrial school. Thus the setting is hardly luxurious. It is therefore easy to connect the rather drab setting of the industrial school with life in the street. The girls' clothing is also far from what one would expect a rich person to wear. There is thus a…… [Read More]

Ontela PicDeck Case (b)'s Quantitative part.

Looking at the questions for the survey, it seems that several of these are particularly pertaining to segmentation identification and evaluation. This seemed to be questions such as Q2-4, which define the profile of the consumer in terms of his or her preference for taking photos with the camera. As such, these questions would likely determine the primary interest of the individuals who take photos with the camera: is it quality or is it a quick and easy transfer to the computer?

Q7 to 9 are also important because they define the primary destination of the photos once they have been transferred, allowing Ontela to determine the main purpose of the transfer and tailor its services to potentially better address this. Finally, Q12 and 13 are also essential for segmentation identification and evaluation, showing how much price matters in the final decision of the…… [Read More]

The memo stating that recommendations for employee photo badges should go out to all clients based on the study of ten companies is based on limited information. The information provided is not enough to be able to ascertain that the badges were the deterrent.

Upon examination of the proposal one can see that there are several areas of missing information regarding whether or not the photo badges were the actual cause of eliminating employee theft.

One of the first things that is missing is whether or not those companies had ever had a problem with employee theft in the past. The study says that there were ten companies in the study and that none…… [Read More]

Had the suspects been seen, what crime was committed was there a motivation for committing this crime, who called the police, and were there any victims. The second question that would provide information is that of what crime was committed was stolen, what evidence exists, what statements have been made, what additional information would be needed. The scenario given gives light to some of the above questions that would be noted in the case notes.

5. I was surprised at the idiosyncrasies of Zhensheng's self-portraits. His stance and defiant expression shows that China was not ideologically homogenous at the time. People like Zhensheng found a way to express dissent and anger, even if they often faced repercussions for their brave actions.

6. The Cultural Revolution was not fully extinguished until 1976, after a prolonged power struggle within the Chinese government. This illustrates the vulnerability of ordinary people's lives in a dictatorship: one minute it was 'counterrevolutionary' to support certain politicians, like Deng Xiaoping, and then, not so long afterwards it was considered patriotic to support Deng.

7. The role of women was surprising -- in the countryside, women were often required to labor as hard as their male counterparts, including pulling wheelbarrows to irrigate a field.

How I Learned to Drive by Paula Vogel

Words: 625 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 3222180


Perhaps one of the most famous pedophiles in literature was Humbert in Nabokov's masterpiece, the novel Lolita. If that novel shows the reader anything, it's that pedophiles, though monstrous and selfish, are anything but simple creatures. This is absolutely true and reflected in the play How I Learned to Drive by Paula Vogel as Vogel has created Uncle Peck, the uncle who molests the main character L'il Bit. Vogel works hard not to present Uncle Peck as an antagonist; she shows him as tremendously flawed, but intricate and compassionate and very attentive of his niece, L'il Bit, as she struggles to exist in an insensitive family where her needs to be nurtured aren't being met even remotely.

This lack of nurturing sets L'il Bit to be a prime target for the attentions of Uncle Peck. Much in the play is made about the size of L'il Bit's breasts as…… [Read More]

The child and her father stare at something slightly to the left of the gazer. It is as if both of them are looking at their futures, and it is bleak. The girl appears almost angelic, with soft blonde hair and tear-filled china blue eyes, but she wears an inappropriately sexual black bikini top with polka dots. Along with the father's cigarettes, the image suggests a young girl forced to grow up before her time because her father is unable to parent her. The father's naked chest underlines his raw, unprotected state and the lack of protection he can give his children.

A FSA portrait which resonates with the Grannan photograph can be found in the image of a work entitled Destitute pea pickers in California. Mother of seven children. Age thirty-two. Nipomo, California, 1936. The nearly emaciated woman cradles her chin in her face, looking slightly to the left of the photographer, just like the man in the Grannan photograph. Two of the mother's children bury their heads in each of her shoulders, but she looks away from them, as if she is too tired to give them any love. If it were not for the title of the photograph, it would be difficult to believe that she was their mother, given that she has no maternal tenderness in her eyes. The genders of the children are not even visible from the photograph because they are concealed by her face and shoulders. It is as if there is nothing she can do but turn away and rest her head in her hands.

What is so striking in the comparison of these photographs is the extent to which gender seems to be irrelevant for both parents: because of the economic circumstances which the family finds itself, the parents are unable to extend either fatherly protection or maternal tenderness to the children. The children have become faceless and anonymous, as if they have no future. The skimpy bathing suit of the girl and her pinched, weeping eyes seems to be a particularly ominous harbinger for the girl in the contemporary photograph; in the FSA photograph, the utterly concealed, 'buried' children seem to have lost all identifying characteristics, and simply symbolize need and despair. Although it would be impossible to confuse the two photographs, the similarity of expression in the faces of the subjects and the staging of the photographers are eerily resonant and haunting.

Graffiti: An Anthropological Analysis

Graffiti is one of the oldest extant art forms: graffiti has been found on ancient monuments as well as on subways and billboards across the urban landscape of today (Alonso 1998: 3). The piece of graffiti I chose to use was a series of images inscribed on a No Parking sign. I found this piece of graffiti [URL:] on a common photo-sharing application known as 'Flickr' in which individuals share various photographs. This photograph came from a California-based photographer and was part of a photo-sharing ring of individuals who specialize in taking photographs of graffiti and street art. The impetus behind the group is to showcase graffiti as an interesting and legitimate art form.

One typically does not consider the floral designs required by Barnsdall to be a good match for the harsh lines and square angles used in house.

In order to accommodate the needs of the design and those of the owner, Wright used hollyhocks and floral designs to help soften the harsh lines created by the concrete. This allowed the work to flow, rather than to bring out the contrast created by these two opposing elements. Contrast is the key to Wright's work. However, this is difficult ground from a design perspective, as one must be careful not to make the building seem out of place in the natural landscape. Consider the following photo and the contrast between the concrete walls set against the rolling green hills in the background.

" (MoMA, p. 7)

This conceptual shift is ongoing throughout the series of photos and photography-based works displayed in the exhibition. For instance, a great deal of emphasis in many of the early works in the exhibition is placed on the details and features of industrialization. A good example is the series from 1927 by Charles Sheeler, which offers a panorama of the more mechanized features of metropolitan life such as with Criss-Crossed Conveyors, River Rogue Plant, Ford Motor Company.

The claim is organized by showing a single photograph. There were no correspondents listed. ("Good Reasons") ("Olympic Ring")

What is the medium and genre?

The medium is from an online news organization called ITN. It appears as both a still photograph and a video. The genre is a single picture. It is illustrated is through a new event that is occurring. ("Good Reasons") ("Olympic Ring")

What appeals are used?

The photographer represents themselves as a member of a major news organization. There is no authority other than the assumption that they are an expert. However, this helps to build upon the belief that the information they are providing to the audience is accurate. The logos are being represented through direct observation and by watching the activities of the people on the boat with the flame. The pathos is to invoke an emotional response such as national pride and awe. ("Good…… [Read More]

Targeting Different Audiences Three Advertisements

Words: 998 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 74281956

Purchase the cologne and the male wearer will instantly become like the man in the advertisement, the picture suggests -- or your boyfriend or husband will become like the man in the advertisement. Of course, written out directly, this statement sounds absurd. This message is conveyed in a subtle fashion, through subtext and visual suggestion rather than overtly.

Cologne is not a functional product: it is not strictly a 'necessity.' Any additional cost demanded by the manufacturer is based upon the intangible aspects wearing it conveys to the viewer. Rather than practical attributes (even a cream like Oil of Olay has a certain, specific use it must fulfill -- no matter how well-marketed, it is unlikely to be purchased unless it actually helps the wearer's skin) a cologne's appeal is almost completely based upon the wearer's self-image and the image he wishes to project. The image of the man is…… [Read More]

waiting room some years ago I happened upon a National Geographic magazine with an article on some Caribbean island, but what most interested me were the fantastic photos of the beautiful island. Inside this magazine were images of pristine blue waters, beautiful beaches and jungles, and people that seemed to be living in paradise. Perhaps this is what first sparked my interest in photography and my dream of traveling the globe as a photographer. But great photographers are not simply made, it takes a great deal of hard work and education to become great. Therefore, if I am to reach my goal of becoming a photographer, I need to immerse myself in the primary education of such a field and am applying for admission to Kean University in the hopes of furthering my professional ambitions.

Archival Mission and Practice

How does the primary mission of the archives (institutional vs. collecting) affect archival practice (acquisitions, processing, preservation, reference, etc.)?

Historical organizational records often have continuing value to an organization. They may provide evidence of an organization's existence, practice, operations, and day-to-day functions (Fruscian, 2011). One of the key elements in establishing a successful archive is to define its mission or purpose. An archive's mission is often impacted by institutional variations; however, in general the goal is to collect, evaluate, describe, and offer historical records of value to an institution (Cross, 1997). The core elements of the mission include what the organization decides to collect and a definition of the audience the organization serves (Cox, 1998). Archives make legal, fiscal, administrative and proprietary records accessible and help preserve that data which has operational significance to the institution (Maher, 1992). Members of the organization and the larger community…… [Read More]

Intro to Digital Photography

The Landscape of Vermont in Black and White

I have had the wonderful fortune of being able to live in Vermont for most of my life. The splendor of the landscape is what first motivated me to pick up a camera over thirty years ago and endeavor to capture its beauty to tell a story. My photographic images are an extension of the world in which I grew up and live in today.

The images in this portfolio of Vermont are in black and white. I chose this medium because for me, black and white, or monochrome photography, comes naturally. When I am photographing, I try to look at how I can use the light, shadow, and composition to capture the character that black and white photography has to offer.

Having both black and white in a shot is important, but just as…… [Read More]

Abjection of the Body & Cyborg Jewelry Design

The examples of jewelry located and examined for the purposes of this paper align with the definitions and ideas of the authors that contextualize the conversation. (Refinery 29, 2012) Notice how both of the models are positioned side by side, which immediately prompts the audience, viewer, or consumer to compare and contrast. Though their precise background are unknown, it is presumed that both models are Caucasian. Both models have short brown hair. The models do not closely resemble each other, yet there are similarities in the thickness of their lips, the subtlety of their cheek bones, and the composition of the product photos. Viewers are meant to draw more similarities between the models than highlight the differences.

Though we presume that one model is male and one model is female, their similarity highlights their androgyny, their lack of gender or the…… [Read More]

photographic work of Martha Rosler. The writer focuses on how the various photographs depict the 20th century. The writer discusses the use of color, light, image and idea to illustrate the picture painted of the 20th century by Rosler.

United States artist Martha Rosler has worked to provide a cataloged version of the spaces and moods of 20th century hearts and minds. She worked through her travels with a camera and shot things that she believed were representative of heart of America. The pictures tell stories that branch off into ideas of their own with the light and the images that are portrayed in them. The combination of people and objects blend a sense of surreal images so that the viewer can either focus on the literal image or the more abstract idea that is born from the idea. There were many photographs over several decades that the artist used…… [Read More]

Brookman reports that "in August 1942 Parks listened as Watson told her story. 'She had struggled alone after her mother had died and her father had been killed by a lynch mob,' he recalls. 'She had gone through high school, married and become pregnant. Her husband was accidentally shot to death two days before the daughter was born. By the time the daughter was eighteen she had given birth to two illegitimate children, dying two weeks after the second child's birth. What's more, the first child had been stricken with paralysis a year before its mother died. Now this woman was bringing up these grandchildren on a salary hardly suitable for one person.' (p. 1)

Katy Jones and I are best friends. We spent every Christmas together at both her house and mine, because our families used to live right around the corner from each other in Elgin, Illinois.

She did nothing without me, and I did nothing without her. We laughed like one person, always in harmony with each other when we played with our toys or in the yard. Our bond remained strong until middle school.

Come middle school our friendship changed. I hung around in one clique, and Katy in another. We had arguments, and we went long times without speaking to one another. Scenes like the one depicted in this photo would have been a distant memory, and neither of us would have felt sentimental. We were adolescents, and silly. The bond between us seemed at times to break entirely. Her family moved to Rockford in 2005 and that could have been the end of our friendship.

Thankfully, it was not. Time and growth have made our friendship more mature. We spend a lot of time laughing together like we used to, and this time what we laugh about includes the petty grievances we used to fight over. Twenty years after this first grade Christmas party, Katy Jones and I are still best friends. Better than any other photograph of Katy and I, this one best represents the timelessness of our friendship because of the symbolism of the evergreen tree and of Christmas.

Sub-Strategic Alliances & Growth.

The joint venture between Xerox and Fuji Photo Film to form Fuji Xerox was considered by many to be one of the most successful joint ventures between an American and Japanese company in history. The purpose of the strategic alliance was to overcome growing competition in the global marketplace. Fuji Xerox is only one portion of the Xerox Group, which is comprised of several larger divisions. Much of the competition that Fuji Xerox hoped to overcome was based in Japan. When Xerox began to see competitors such as Canon and Ricoh growing exponentially through exports, they realized that they had to make major changes in order to remain competitors of scale.

Fashion has been on people's minds since time immemorial. Whether man, woman, child or elderly, individuals have sought to express themselves through how they dressed, one more conservative, the other extravagant and glamorous. Nowadays, it's quite a technique to skillfully attempt to dress people when being dressed sometimes implies having no clothing whatsoever. This effect is accurately illustrated in Picture 1 in which a marrying couple seem to be wearing, what looks like a uniform for the man, and a dressing gown for the woman. While one does notice the boxer shorts on the man and the extension of a real dress on the woman, the effect is nevertheless substantial.

pictures can speak louder than words, and this is clear in the photo entitled "U.S. Navy: An aerial view of damage to Wakuya, Japan after a 9 magnitude tsunami." The photo initially looks like picture of a tiny child's toy boat, which is floating in a muddy sea of debris. The boat looks brave and cheery, as it floats amidst the muck, garbage, and flotsam and jetsam of people's belongings. However, the first, deceptive glance of the photograph quickly ebbs away as the viewer becomes aware that he or she is bearing of witness to one of the greatest human tragedies to strike a nation, as a result of a natural disaster, in the 21st century.

Publish or Not to Publish?

One of the recurring ethical dilemmas in journalism is whether or not to publish photographs that may be considered offensive to some portion of the public, may promote the goal of a person who committed an offense, or that are extremely violent or graphic. This dilemma has recently recurred in debate surrounding the printing or distribution of photographs or videotapes that show the death of Joshua Bernard and the beheading of James Foley by the terrorist organization, Isis. Many people feel that distributing these photos is disrespectful, not only to the victims, but also to their family members. They believe that the victims deserve to be remembered in life and not reduced to a victim status. Other people worry that distributing images of something like a soldier's death or a beheadings will actually promote hostile goals, by encouraging fear in the population.

CELCAT, though, is just one of dozens of vendors competing in the class scheduling software industry as well as many open sources options that are free of charge, and the thousands of colleges and universities that have undertaken the selection process have done so largely without the benefit of a set of best practices that can be used for this purpose. As a result, it is reasonable to suggest that many of these educational institutions failed to realize the full spectrum of benefits that can accrue to the effective use of class scheduling software applications based on an inappropriate selection or internal factors that constrained its implementation and use. Therefore, it just makes good business sense to identify how these educational institutions can approach the selection process and what factors need to be taken into account in identifying the most appropriate software choice.

Because the Lowells are Americans and purchased their ticket in America, it is unlikely that an American court would recognize Mr. Lowell's ability to contract away his wife's right to be recognized as a legal individual in a contract dispute. Furthermore, the Fourteenth Amendment guarantees Mrs. Lowell the equal protection of the laws, (U.S. Const. amend. XIV, 1)…… [Read More]

d.). A researcher may determine if a rock sample is sedimentary by examining whether it consists of grains. An igneous (from the Latin word for fire) rock, known as granite, consists of minerals like quartz, mica, and feldspar. "Igneous rocks come from melted rock material, or magma, that lies under Earth's surface" ("How can you tell," n.d.), forming when magma from inside the Earth travels toward the Earth's surface, or a volcano forced it in the form of lava and ash above the Earth's surface, where it cools and crystallizes into rock. Metamorphic rocks, rocks, which may be sedimentary and igneous rocks, changed by intense heat or pressure while they form, come from hot, pressured conditions inside the Earth's crust. At times, these rocks cool and crystallize, into bands of crystals. A researcher may determine if a rock sample is metamorphic by examining the crystals to see if they are…… [Read More]

Satellite Imagery Has Recorded Rainfall

The determination was that energy absorption into the clouds and the production of forestation varied by the year. The conclusion was that the rainforests in the Amazon are sensitive to El Nino and the plants that grew, producing carbon flux varied as much as 21% and 18%. (2000 American Geophysical Union) (Koren 1342).

Information obtained via satellite is shared with environmental protection agencies. Created by a Stanford scientist to study the depletion of the Amazon rainforest, this method of satellite detection of aerosols could help fight against illegal logging (Wang 2004).

Thus the satellites have a large affect on the rain forests and could have more in the future, in determining how much water will be needed, how the land may be saved from deforestation, how water affects the phenology (plant life) of the forests, and whether there will be enough rainfall for the forest to survive.

Consumption and Mass Media

Consumption and Mass Media

What is conspicuous consumption? How does conspicuous consumption influence purchasing decisions? Think about a high-priced item (Rolex) that you would like to buy. To what extent could conspicuous consumption affect your decision?

Conspicuous consumption is consumption for the sake of impressing observers. Most consumers buy Rolex watches not because of Rolex's quality, but because the brand signifies that the purchaser is wealthy enough to afford a Rolex. Although an extremely cheap watch and an expensive watch may vary in terms of their quality, the expense of a Rolex cannot be justified by quality alone. Someone who wishes to signify his social class and economic status to friends and associates 'in the know' buys a Rolex; without these signifiers the Rolex means nothing.

Q2. What is conspicuous leisure? In what ways are leisure activities informed by social and economic class? Provide an example of a popular leisure…… [Read More]

Fashion of the 20th Century

The only image from the time that we have of the original dress is in the film poster (Image 5), where one can see that the dress showed quite a big of leg, which was considered improper and that is why the film commissioned a tailor to sew up Givenchy's original design, as to not offend anybody in the audience. What a pity, for today, the dress would perhaps be ever-more popular.

In the third image, however, which is the picture of the dress as seen at Christie's, one can see that one of the photos shows the dress with the slit. Yet this discussion of without or without the cut prompts the thought of the fact that these are two dresses, one created by Givenchy, and one a copy created by another designer, a 'knock-off' almost, that together with the original created a phenomenon of epic proportions. Could it…… [Read More]

Ethnic Cultures' Experience of Art

Words: 2675 Length: 10 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 56733059

For example, the ethnic client who paints a huge red heart with an arrow piercing its center is communicating a universally understood message: I have been affected by love/passion/emotion.

Natalie Rogers, founder of the Person Centered Expressive Therapy Institute is a strong proponent of expressive art. In this form of art therapy, the ethnic client is encouraged to "express inner thoughts by creating outer forms."

When treating a client with art therapy, Ms. Rogers uses many techniques of expressive art: drawing, coloring, dancing, musical demonstrations, and the like.

Once these exercises are completed, the participants are encouraged to explore the nuances involved in the interaction: did communication occur? Was it a pleasant experience? Were boundaries an issue? Who led? Who followed?

Despite the fact that this work is not done solely with ethnically displaced clients, the premise remains the same; through expressive creativity, one's self may be realized, recognized, and…… [Read More]

Art Exhibit in December 2004

The "self-portraits" might perhaps be viewed in terms of the artist's own past illnesses: At 37, Taylor-Woods, having already survived both colon cancer and breast cancer, likely understands, on personal level, the state of "suspense" between sickness and health, life and death. She may, then, have been "bound" to breast cancer (the invisible ropes may symbolize the disease), cured of it, and her body "released to freedom." In my opinion, however, an artistic weakness of these pictures is that their esthetics and size make them look less like serious art than fashion advertisements for bras and panties! For me, "Self-Portrait Suspended" is the least effective of the three exhibition subjects. The tension in the subject's body also appears to be that of someone hanging from ropes (which she in fact was); the tautness of her body kept me from "suspending my disbelief" (so to speak) that she was hanging in…… [Read More]
