I need an explanation for this Art & Design question to help me study.

Write about the image above. Organize your 500-750 word analysis into four categories and follow the instructions listed below. It may be helpful to use headings in your Discussion post.

Subject

Clearly state and describe the subject. What type of subject is it? In general, what is the story, or narrative (if applicable)?

Form and Content – Medium

Clearly describe the artist’s unique approach to using the materials and why they chose those materials. Explain how this approach contributes to making a powerful visual statement and reinforces the meaning. In other words, what was the artist trying to say or express by doing it this way?

Form and Content – Visual Element or Principle of Design

Clearly identify and describe the most dominant visual element or design principle used in the artwork. Explain how it contributes to making a powerful visual statement and reinforces the meaning. In other words, how did the artist’s use of this element strengthen what the artist was trying to say or express?

Research

It will be beneficial for you to do some very basic research about the artist and the image. Look at other works by the artist to gain insights about their artistic vision. This will inform your post. You don’t need to do extensive research, but try to identify and include at least one big idea you find. Be sure to cite your sources and paraphrase these ideas in your own words. Do not cut and paste!

Art 100 Discussion

I’m working on a Art & Design exercise and need support.

Memento Mori, Remember Death will come.

For this topic, let’s imagine how we’d like to “leave this mortal coil,” to “make our exit,” or to “start pushing up the daisies.” The chapter reading for this week gives us ample examples and suggestions, a kind of blueprint, for how we could image this. These range from the personally eccentric examples laid out in the “Going out BIG” section, to the monumental markers on an architectural scale laid out in the section on “Ego,” or would you prefer to be physically preserved forever for all to see?

These are just some starting points to get you inspired- you don’t have to answer these questions, they are meant to fire up some ideas within your brainstorming.

  • Are there special items that you’d like to accompany your corpse? Maybe it’s that favorite light saber, lucky hat, wedding ring, your baseball card collection, an important religious object, or that 1967 Chevy Camero with white leather interior?
  • Do you want to share your (cremated) remains among your loved ones? What should they do with them—put them in amulets on chains, in an urn on the mantle, or resting in more traditional place like a cemetery?
  • Or would you select a burial, in your favorite car perhaps, in a custom Kane Kwei-style coffin shaped like a chicken, or in a giant crypt with your favorite 60” television, with a full bar and a butler, or with any of the other things you need in the afterlife?
  • Do you want a ritualized celebration honor with fireworks, dancing, or the Pope, or any other religious figure’s, blessing?

These examples are all rooted in ancient traditions, the art of which is covered in this chapter, that predate our contemporary traditions. Keep in mind that these scenarios are imaginary, so be as creative as possible.

Here is an example from a recently deceased pet in my family. Milli, our basset hound was 15 years old when she died a few months ago. For your summary, make sure to provide images.

1. She is buried in the back yard, where family can visit anytime. It’s a quiet space, with other pets that have passed, which is a “community” gathering place, like a traditional cemetery.

a. Traditional cemetery

2. We buried her wrapped in a favorite dog blanket, with a bacon chew toy, and sage. These are things she may need in the afterlife and objects that she enjoyed in life.

a. Ancient Egyptians/ Qin Shi Huang’s tomb (terra cotta warriors)

3. There is a memorial on my bookshelf, with ofrendas: a toy, a flower, some treats

a. Day of the Dead remembrances

4. We have an annual memorial planned for the future.

a. Dogon dama funeral; anniversary rituals

5. We saved some dog hair and placed it in a special container to hold onto a physical part of Milli to maintain a sense continued connection.

a. Reliquary that houses a physical part of the deceased

WRITTEN SUMMARY REQUIREMENTS:

  1. Provide the information in the numbered format above.
  2. CITE sources, if you use them (it is not necessary to use another source other than your text book). Your submission will be scanned through for originality. I will use this data to inform your grade. If you do not cite, it will “appear” that plagiarism is taking place.
