Roman Art

The Romans culture included a ton of art. Granted, most of their ideas came from the Greek culture that preceded them. A lot of their art is a play on a Greek original. They dabbled in architecture; building temples, tombs, etc. They built sculptures with materials such as copper and iron. They even had a few writers and poets. This particular collection focuses on the architecture, sculptures and paintings related to their culture. I chose this topic and these segments because I am extremely interested in seeing how art was when it was first coming to fruition, generations ago. It is fascinating to mentally compare it to the art forms we see today. #AHMCFall2019

The Influence of Warfare on Art Throughout History

The concept of groups of people initiating an organized conflict with one another predates civilization itself, and will likely always be present among us.  Many of the great historic civilizations who made major contributions to the arts also contributed to the development of military strategy and tactics, and participated in historic conflicts. In these civilizations, war is a frequent subject of the artwork they've produced, and the influence of war on the cultures of these societies is notable. This collection will examine the influences that warfare had on the art and culture of these civilizations through the analysis of individual works, and is meant to be viewed by those with an interest in military history and its commemoration through artwork/architecture.

Leaders Throughout History

This collection explores varies leaders through history and why they were so memorable. These leaders will vary from rulers, commanders/captains, artists, and religious beliefs.  Throughout history leaders were treated as great people, who were able to make a stable for themselves through war, adventure, creation, and beliefs. 

One of my interest is looking back a leaders who set a name for themselves and what they have done that made them so known. All leaders from the past and modern time, have their own story and reading through each one of them is interesting to me, as it not only explain what they have done, but also how life was like. 

This collection will focus on why these leaders were so admired and what they have done for the people to view them as leaders through sculptures, architectures,  paintings, and literature. This collection is very interesting and all ages will find this collection very entertain and informative as it explain leaders from the past and modern time, but also around the world.

Software makes cyberbullies think twice

Social media is a place where people can express their opinions.  The internet is an unregulated world that has no forms of morals and it is also a frontier for cyber bullying. Young people are exposed to violence, verbal outbursts, nudism  and explicit sexual content. When consumed for a long time, all these contents can lead to some serious issues. For instance, they may start having anxiety attacks and start to register them in their minds which can lead to mental issues.  The following statement is from a then 13 year old from Chicago named Trisha Prabhu. She had came home from school and read a news story about an 11-year-old girl who had committed suicide by jumping off her town’s water tower. In the months before her death, the girl had been repeatedly cyberbullied.

“I was shocked, heart-broken and angry,” says Prabhu, now 15. “I knew I had to do something to stop this from ever happening again.”

So Prabhu came up with a cyber-solution for cyberbullying. She invented a software called ReThink, which scans social media messages for offensive content, and gives the writer a chance to reconsider whether he or she really wants to post. The program, which can be installed by parents on home computers or by teachers on school computers, uses context-sensitive word screening to flag messages for content. 

For Prabhu, ReThink is personal. She too had been cyberbullied in her younger years, receiving nasty messages about her clothes.

“I’m what you’d call thick-skinned, so I just brushed it off and moved on,” Prabhu says. “But after reading about this story, I realized that many adolescents were really affected by these offensive messages, especially if the cyberbullying was repeated and targeted.”   

Cyberbullying is indeed a serious and growing problem. Research shows 43 percent of kids have experienced cyberbullying. Some 70 percent of students report seeing “frequent” online bullying. Bullying victims are up to nine times more likely to consider suicide.

ReThink works on the principle that the adolescent brain is like a “car with no brakes,” Prabhu says. “It’s all too well-known that adolescents make impulsive, rash decisions.”

It has indeed been well-established that the prefrontal cortex—a region of the brain important for self-control and decision-making—doesn’t fully develop until a person is about 25 years old. This is likely a major factor behind teenagers’ sometimes irresponsible and risky decisions—texting and driving, fighting, even simply neglecting homework in favor of hanging out with friends.

Prabhu has received numerous accolades for her work. She was a global finalist in the Google Science Fair, selected to exhibit at the White House Science Fair and received a Global Anti-Bullying Hero award from Auburn University, among other honors.

Prabhu has long been fascinated by computer science; she first began learning to code at age 11 through a local technology education program for kids. Since developing ReThink, she has created a free ReThink app for smartphones. She’s also rolled out a ReThink “ambassador” program for schools, where student representatives spread anti-cyberbullying messages to their classmates and students are invited to take an anti-cyberbullying pledge.

Prabhu has received multiple messages from people who know firsthand the trauma cyberbullying can cause—parents whose children have committed suicide after repeated cyberbullying, police officers who deal with cyberbullying on a criminal level, school counselors and administrators who struggle to help cyberbullied students. And then there are the victims themselves. One particularly memorable note Prabhu received was not from a teenager, but from an adult, a retired teacher who had been bullied for years by an adult adopted daughter. “Trisha,” the woman wrote, “ReThink would not only help adolescents, it would help adults too.”

To test how it works, I downloaded ReThink to my iPhone. I started to post "I hate you" to a Facebook wall (with no intentions, of course, of actually posting it), and a ReThink bubble popped up. “Let’s change these words to make it positive,” it suggested. “You’re a fat,” I began, and I was interrupted by “Don’t say things that you may regret later!” ReThink has a high sensitivity for obscenities. When I started the missive with a four-letter word, the ReThink bubble showed up to ask “Are these words really you?”

That said, the program did not catch everything. I was able to type "You're ugly and stupid" without getting a ReThink message, and somehow "nobody likes you, you idiot" also snuck through. 

Though ReThink is clearly not yet a perfect tool for capturing all cyber cruelty, when it does offer teens a second chance they tend to take it. According to research conducted with ReThink, teens change their mind about posting the hurtful messages 93 percent of the time.

Prabhu ultimately hopes to have ReThink installed for free on school computers and libraries across the country, and even the world—she has plans to develop the program in multiple languages.

“I look forward to a day when we have conquered cyberbullying,” she says.

Animal Symbolism in Art and Culture - #AHMCFall2019 - Emily Heffernan (Curated Collection Parts 1, 2 and 3)

People of all ages and cultures have used animals in their art work, sculptures and even music. Do you remember how Taylor Swift incorporated snakes into her album artwork?  Even her merchandising used animals as a message demonstrating that Taylor may have been portrayed like a snake in the media but she is a strong fierce competitor in the music industry. No on could take that away from her,  she was turning a negative image into a positive outcome. 

 Snakes in Taylor Swifts Music  (Click the link if you want to check out her album).  

A little bit about me... I am an animal lover and growing up with pets in my life (we currently have a dog named Wally who just turned nine) it has always interested me to see how people focus on animals as a subject matter. Many cultures have used specific animals to represent their beliefs and incorporated the animals' characteristics.  (One example is that Asian cultures identify tigers with power or agility characteristics. 

For my first collection (Part 1) I will be looking at three explosive periods of civilization and examine art in various forms whether its cave paintings or mosaics.  My first piece  is going to focus specifically on animals as I figured each of the three collections can expand upon my interests, animals being one of them.  I think the potential audience my collection applies to is college student, high school students, art history majors and any one else  interested in animals and their significance through out time.

THEMES:

1. Earliest Culture - Paleolithic Period

The first two tiles will examine the Paleothic Period and why animals were so important and I will include a small except of what their beliefs are.

2. Egyptian Civilization 

The third and fourth tiles will talk about the Egyptian Culture and why cats were so symbolic in art.

3. Roman Civilization 

Lastly, the final fifth and sixth title will examine the animals statues explored in our  text book and  include a very interesting mosaic showing why crocodiles were so popular.

Curated Collection PART 2 - Monday, October 14, 2019

For my section collection (Part 2) I will be looking at three exciting periods of civilization and examine art in various forms whether its oil paintings or mosaics.  My second piece  is going to focus specifically on  different types of animals that are depicted in vital periods and cultures.  Again, I think the potential audience my collection applies to is college students, high school students, art history majors and any one else  interested in animals and their importance throughout out time.

Animals on Top 40 Music Albums (Clink the link if you want to see examples of animals in song titles and album covers)

THEMES:

4. Early Christianity Civilization

Animals were a significant symbol through early Christianity. They impacted culture through tales of the Bible and also were depicted in mosaics, art forms and statutes.  I focused on two depictions of the "Good Shepard" and how lambs were  valued very highly through out civilization.

5. Early Middle Ages and the Romanesque Period

This is my favorite period because of the exotic and exquisite animals shown in art.  I really enjoyed this period because of The Unicorn Chronicles which I will explain in length on my title.  Beasts such as winged animals or lizards are discussed on my second title. Check it out! 

6. The Renaissance in Italy and Northern Europe

Lastly, my final two art forms show how dogs and peacocks (especially) are reflected in art.  Again, showing animals' significance through out our time.

Curated Collection PART 3 - Sunday, November 10, 2019

For my section collection (Part 3) I will be looking at three exciting periods of civilization and examine art in various forms whether its oil paintings or bronze sculptures. My third and FINAL piece is going to focus specifically on  different types of animals (mostly dogs) that are depicted in vital periods and cultures.  Again, I think the potential audience my collection applies to is college students, high school students, art history majors and any one else  interested in animals and their importance throughout out time. Thanks so much for a great semester!

(Click the link if you want to learn more about Jeff Koons's art work)   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-27B8gngS4g

THEMES:

5. Eighteenth Century, Romanticism and Realism

This is my favorite period, because I got to talk about Watson and The Shark and discuss a bit about my Museum Paper, which this piece really made a splash through out history and continues to cause a discussion.

6. Impressionism, Early Twentieth Century

I really enjoyed this period as there was so many animals and artworks to chose from but I focused on discussing sculptures, which I found on a website  that you can buy today. I also chose two pieces, a pig and a dog as those are my favorite animals.

7. Mid-Twentieth Century and Later

For my last two titles, I am talking about two famous artists that are more current and have caused quite an impact in the 20th century.  I think everyone has seen Jeff Koons's  art work before, currently he has a piece at the Encore, the new casino in Everett.

Software makes cyberbullies think twice

Over the past two decades, social media have gained so much growth and fame to an extent that many researchers are now interested in learning more about these social platforms and their effects on our youths.  The internet is an unregulated world that has no forms of morals and it is also a frontier for cyber bullying. Young people are exposed to violence, verbal outbursts, nudism  and explicit sexual content. When consumed for a long time, all these contents can lead to some serious issues. For instance, they may start having anxiety attacks and start to register them in their minds which can lead to mental issues. Researchers have found that these social sites impact the lives of our youth a great deal in terms of morals, behavior and even education wise. 

  The following statement is from a then 13 year old from Chicago named Trisha Prabhu.

Influential Architecture: A Comparison of Past & Present

This collection is meant to introduce the viewer to world architecture of the past & present day using Rebold & DiYanni's text, Arts and Culture, An Introduction to the Humanities (2012).

One of my hobbies is traveling, and when I do travel, one aspect that I pay attention to is the architecture of the place I'm in. As I was studying architecture for this class, I realized that buildings even in my home state of Ohio had beautiful Roman influences, although they were built two millennia later.

This project will focus on world architecture, its history and innovations, as well as comparisons to the influences we see on buildings going up all around our world today. It should be noted that the artistic comparisons in this collection are of my own observation alone and any influence the modern architects may have had may have been intentional or simply coincidental.

I hope you enjoy this collection.

Akhenaton: The Pharaoh, considered heretical, triggered a veritable cultural and religious revolution.

I am here to learn the history through music and culture.  I like the contemporary classic and jazz music because class and jazz music have long histories that represent the cultures at that time and we appreciate and analyze about the emotions of the people in that time.

The purpose of this collection is to show how “The powerful leaders of greatest civilization” who changed the direction of existing Religion, culture, history and art as per their beliefs. This collection is part one of that that I have organized, chronologically, on Akhenaton: The Pharaoh, considered heretical, triggered a veritable cultural and religious revolution. The other two collections are " Alexander the Great: The Greek Conqueror and Cultural blender" and Octavian Augustus: The Roman Emperor "The illustrious one". It is my hope that these collections will help viewers to understand influential power of world’s ancient leaders in the field of Art and Culture.

The works of art is close to some of the spiritual quest and questions the civilizational future. The look of ancient art allows us to develop our ability to look at the world. It leads to searching for the deep meaning of each thing. In every era and every context, art has always been a forerunner of culture and civilization.

My hope is that this collection will exemplify No other, in more than three millennia of ancient Egypt, has left so controversial a trace as Akhenaton. Reigning at the height of Egyptian power, the Pharaoh, considered heretical, triggered a veritable cultural and religious revolution that still fascinates today with its audacity and its mysteries. My main sources of study were Arts and Culture: An Introduction to the Humanities, and the Smithsonian Lab.

It is my hope that these collections will help to understand the pharaoh power and influence over their art. Culture and even religious beliefs

The notion of art includes the creations of the man who express his sensitive point of view of the world, real as well as imaginary, whether through sculptures, linguistic or sound resources. Art is born with a ritual or magic function and has evolved thus becoming aesthetic or even recreational.

Pharaoh Akhenaton takes power in 1353 BC, and breaks with centuries of tradition. During his seventeen years of rule, he imposed new artistic and architectural styles, and celebrated the sun god Aton, at the expense of ancient deities.

The once heavily regulated proportions and artistic poses become more flexible: artisans can create realistic and graceful scenes of the natural world, and even portray Akhenaton and his wife, Nefertiti, in unusual and intimate poses. The royal couple is thus often represented kissing and caressing their daughters. One scene goes as far as figuring the king and the queen preparing to share their bed. The representation of Akhenaton's features seems destined to impress the viewer: massive jaws, drooping lips and stretched eyes of ineffable strangeness.

Forgotten for millennia, Akhenaton was rediscovered only at the end of the nineteenth century, and it will still take several decades to understand its history. He is generally recognized as one of the pioneers of monotheism, long before the "book religions".
