Midterm Assignmenture, sculpture, or structure to analyze. Your selection must be a work we have not seen before either in the book or on our class Moodle page. It should be new to you.
For this assignment, you should cite where you found information about the artist and what the picture/sculpture/structure is made of and where it appears in the world. You can use an outside source, meaning the internet or a book, for that portion only. You cannot use outside sources for analysis. The analysis must be uniquely your own. I’m looking forward to hearing your thoughts and seeing your application of the knowledge in this class. I know each of you is capable of producing an amazing presentation, and I’m excited to see your ideas and analysis in action. In fact, you’ve had some practice analyzing in the interactive writing assignment each week.
Your task is to create an informative and visually attractive PowerPoint presentation. Your PowerPoint is due by 11:55pm on Sunday, week 4. You should post your PowerPoint to the Moodle link on our week 4 page. Your PowerPoint should include the following:
Slide 1: Include your name and the discipline you’re going to focus on (pictures, sculpture, or architecture).
Slide 2: Identify the artist, show a picture of your selection, and discuss why you find the work inspiring. Why did you choose it?
Slide 3: Give your reader information about the piece. What is it?
If it’s a picture, you should consider is it a drawing, a painting, an etching, a print, a photograph?
If it’s a sculpture, is lasting or ephemeral? Is it full round, relief, or linear?
If it’s architecture, is it a building, a bridge, a monument? What purpose does the structure serve?
Slide 4: Discuss the materials used in your selection. How is it put together?
If it’s a picture, what media is used? Is the media dry or wet? For example, is it chalk, charcoal, paint, tempera, ink?
If it’s a sculpture, what is the method of execution—subtraction, construction, substitution, manipulation? What material is it made of—stone, wood, clay, metal?
It it’s architecture, what is the system of construction? Is it post-and-lintel, cantilever? Does it have a bearing wall you can identify or a skeleton frame? What is the structure made of—stone, concrete, wood, or steel?
Slide 5: Discuss how your selection stimulates the senses. This is really a comment on the composition of your selection.
If it’s a picture, consider the elements of line, form, color, mass, and texture. You will also want to discuss any of the principles you observe, like repetition, balance, unity, focal area.
If it’s a sculpture, consider the elements of mass, line, form, color, and texture. You will also want to discuss any of the principles you observe, like proportion and repetition.
If it’s architecture, consider the structure’s line, repetition, balance, scale, and proportion. You may also want to consider the structure’s context, space, climate, and style.
Slide 6: What is the overall experience of the work? How does it make you feel? What aspects of the work help to create that feeling?
Remember, this is a midterm assignment, so it’s heavily weighted. Please devote an appropriate amount of time and effort to this task. You will be graded on the content of each slide, the imagery on your slides, and the conventions of your text. Please refer to the rubric for more detail.
