I’m back again! So here is my diagram- it is very beautiful.
So the three WOK’s my groups selected are:
- sEnsE pErcEption
So we felt that when you first see the image you use sense perception as you have to try and decipher what is going on in the painting. Then you use your reasoning to better help you figure out what you’re seeing. This is especially important because the art work we were looking at is surreal therefore it IS DIFFICULT TO KNOW EXACTLY WHAT YOU ARE SEEING. Afterwards, we put imagination because often you need to fill in some gaps as some parts of the painting are open to interpretation and aren’t representing clear objects. Then from imagination you can either go back to reasoning or sense perception to further help clarify and gain a better understanding of what YOU ARE SEEING.
What is the methodology behind the lightsaber as a piece of art?
George Lucas had many intentions for the lightsaber. He wanted it to represent a weapon of nobility and more as a defence weapon instead of an attack weapon. So in order to implement this he decided to make the light savers heavy as the light power was very strong. George Lucas used his imagination and creativity to create the Jedi’s and he wanted the light sabers to support this concept of the Jedi’s.
My initial definition of the arts are a set of creative activities that humans use, often to express emotion. The arts can also be reflective. The arts can include photography, visual arts, performances, music, literature etc…
My new definition of art is still a set of creative activities that humans can use to express themselves and possible communicate to others. However, skill, soul and intention can be three major factors in helping to decide whether art is good or bad. Some art may not require a lot of skill to create, but can still be considered very good art if someone put a lot of soul or intention into the artwork. I think intention is very important in defining good art.
- Write about two separate networks that use the ways of knowing. The first network uses the ways of knowing to produce knowledge in the natural sciences while the second network uses the ways of knowing to acquire knowledge in the natural sciences. Each network should have a minimum of two ways of knowing in it.
Production of knowledge:
- Sense Perception
Sense perception comes into play in terms of qualitative observations, which can really help in understanding when doing experiments. Imagination is needed to come up with now ideas/ experiments to try out, since we’re trying to produce new knowledge. Finally, reason is used because we need to come up for an explanation for the data/results that we find, as well as come up with a hypothesis before we do our experiment.
Acquisition of Knowledge:
- Sense Perception
Language is important in the acquisition of knowledge because it is the main way we communicate ideas and concepts to one another. Sense perception can help in understanding these concepts, as visually seeing, hearing, touching, smelling etc things can really aid in a better grasp of the knowledge. Finally, faith is required because we have to trust the people that came up with this knowledge. Since we aren’t the ones producing it, we’re just accepting facts/ theories that others have created.
