ARTWORK ANALYSIS

Belen Brito Peret

1) Definition of art by Kandinsky

He started the lyrical abstraction and the expressionism.

In great art, the viewer feels good about himself. Such harmony or contrast of emotion can not be superficial or insignificant; in fact the tonality of an image can deepen or purify the viewer’s. These works of art at least preserve the soul of the gross; The legend, so to speak, to raise to a certain height, like the keys of intonation of the strings of an instrument. Through the image an awareness of the infinite is maintained: of the eternal within the finite; From the spiritual within the material, the unlimited is shaped. Between these two definitions we can approach a more sublime understanding of the nature of art.

2)

This artwork made by DIEGO GRAVINESE, an Argentinian artist, matches with the definition of Kandinsky because by admiring this image the viewers can feel harmony and different emotions. He also plays with and combine colors making a real image, that transmits a massage by painting different shapes, materials, contrast and variety of colors.

3)  BORDAL0 ii (Portugal)

  1. It is a sculpture and an installation, made from trash highlights perils of wastefulness. This plastic rhino made by Bordalo ii is exposed in Lisbon, Portugal with other artworks of this artist.
  2. This sculpture, is a Rhino made of trash and other materials, as plastic. It is a huge realistic [sure?] sculpture, by which he represent the world we live, how animals are shown as humans, «The idea is not to make something beautiful from garbage, it is to make people stop and look and understand what is behind», said the artist. He wants to transmit the message that is behind of what he creates and shows to the society. This piece of art is placed in Portugal.
  3. i)  This sculpture made by Bordalo ii, is a construction made of plastic and trash. It has a simple structure as it has low number of levels and is centralized on one member, witches in this case is the animal. Moreover, this artwork is asymmetrical because it has a lack of equality or equivalence as it is built.
  1. ii) Bordalo uses warm, cool, light and dark colors. For example, green, blue and yellow. Also, he uses both of saturated and desaturated, as white and black. Moreover, the other groups of colors that he uses polychromatic. Monochromatics are set of colors that all have the same hue blended with different levels of white and black and the polychromatism that are multiple colors.
  2. d) When I first saw the image, I look at the body of the animal and the colors he uses. Then I realised of what the sculpture is made of and the materials. Also, how realistic it is, according to the dimensions.Moreover, I focus on the background, where the sculpture is placed and I connect with my thoughts on how the animal is related with the walls and the contrast between the colorful animal with the brick walls. Finally, I thought about the message that is what I consider the most important when analysing a picture or an image.

 

  1. e) When I saw the image for the first time, firstly I thought that it was a joyful and great sculpture. But when i started analysing it i could understand what the artist wants to transmit and make people conscious about the message and what he decides to create artwork related with animals, to show how animals should be, free as it is art. However, the society do not let this happen because of the human consumption and killing of animals.
  2. f) In my opinion the artist wanted to express the suffering of animals. He could had put the sculpture in an open place, like their natural environment, but Bordalo expose the realistic performance between walls, I think that the walls represents like cages in which animals are nowadays. Not only cows and pigs are being killed, also animals as rhinos that are in the zoos are extinguishing every day.  Almost every artwork of Bordalo are animals, so he wants to transmit the sufferment? and make people think and be aware of what is happening in the world. He turns trash into animals to remind us about pollution.

4) “Rock and roll ain’t Pollution”, a song of the band AC/DC, talks about the pollution in the world and how we need to focus on the future and not in the past because we are going to end up world if we not help to change the environment in which we are living. Bordalo, the artist of this sculpture, turn trash into animals to remind us about the problem that humans are commiting to our world by killing an consuming animals in this case.

 

Script performance Duchamp and Baroness Elsa von Freytag.

(Telephone conversation between Duchamp and the Baroness)

(The baroness in her house moving around and picking up things playing around with them- Duchamp walking in the street wandering the city)

Baroness: Marcel! How wonderful to hear from you! It’s been a while since we last talked. Lately so many objects are reminding me of you.

Duchamp: Baroness, my darling. I have been lacking inspiration since I last saw you, you are my muse. I was just wandering through the street, thinking of what I can do in my next artwork but nothing seemed to come up to my mind so I figured I should call you. Your imagination and creativity are otherworldly.

Baroness: Oh Marcel, you flatter me. I do acknowledge my ideas are kind of crazy, but after all I do have fun and live my life to the fullest. I was thinking maybe we could collaborate and create an artwork together, something new and exciting that can challenge the old-fashioned and boring society we live in.

Duchamp: I agree with you completely. Just tell me about the idea you have for this new artwork so that I can start working on it.

Baroness: Okay, I will, but don’t you dare do it on your own Marcel. I trust you, but I can’t deny the fact that it’s said that you can be deceitful.

Duchamp: I wouldn’t dare. You know how much I adore you. You are the most deep and beautiful art piece I’ve ever seen.

Baroness: Please, I’m out of your league. So the other day I saw an empty barrel and I started thinking how much alike we all are to barrels. We are filled with hopes and when we realize that not all of us can reach our hopes we are empty. Just as when you’re drunk. Just as the barrel.

Duchamp: I don’t get where you’re going with this

Baroness:I thought it could be an excellent artwork. It has a meaning. And it will shock people.

Duchamp: but is already made

Baroness: I know but they didn’t giveput it that meaning to it. I would be givingputting it, I would be the artist.

Duchamp: I see.

Baroness: I also thought I could hit it and maybe break it a little.

Ducham: Great idea. I always saw the spark on you Baroness.

Baroness:But I’m doubting my idea because I don’t think it would attract the audience.

Duchamp: It’s a great idea, I think that it would have a huge audience and catch the interest of people. It may even revolutionize the art world.

Baroness:If you say so I would do it as soon as possible but please, remember not to steal my idea.

Duchamp:If you repeat it many times I will steal your great idea. It seems you don’t trust me while I always trusted you.

(Thinking in his head he will stealsteall the idea and he will become famous with it)

Baroness: You would never consider doingto do such a thing, Duchamp! That will betray my trust and I would never forgive you. Stealing someone else’s idea is a crime. I warn you for the last time, Duchamp. Do not turn my idea into one of your inspirations.

Duchamp: I already told you, your inspiration on this artwork would not be one of mines. I prefer creating something new, different…something that would shock people and make them want more.

Baroness: That’s what I mean! I have many ideas in my mind for preparing my own works from utilitarian objects, and what it is important is that it was my fantastic idea. As well as my clothes, they could be full of strange objects, even garbage, but in this way I can reassemble and modify to give them a different life, a more beautiful aspect.

Duchamp: Yes Baroness, I am getting tired of you.  I think I already made it clear that I will not use your idea, I will come up with a better one and I will also be better known than you because  you don’t concentrate on seeking the prestige of the academy, and if you don’t show your ideas to the world, then they are useless.

Baroness: I know, that’s why I came to ask for your help. I would be very grateful if we do this together, I alsoalso I think we could be a great team because we have a great imagination.

Duchamp: Yes, I believe that  indeed. Well I have to leave you because I’m almost to enter a place. See you!

Baroness: Ok! I hope you think about what I told you and don’t disappoint me because I appreciate you so much. Bye, I believe that I will see you soon!

 

The Fountain 

By Duchamp

Is it art? Why?

The recognised artwork called The Fountain made by Duchamp, some people doesn’t consider it art, although, I think that it is. Why? Because he shows that by having simple, common object you can create art. Duchamp proved to have an idea and a meaning. He wanted to transmit art to the audience and to the world, the significant meaning of his art. By transforming the urinal to a piece of art, Duchamp, was questioning people and proving to the museum and academics and to all the people who criticized him, how something without a meaning could become something famous and recognised.

Furthermore, with the meaningful ideas and the point to prove people about the artwork, he could finally convince people about his art and to prove how wrong those who thought that changing the meaning of an object or instrument wasn’t art. This was too important and have a great impact to the population, because they started reading about  the Urinal and creating their own artwork inspired on him. Duchamp convinced people of this, using him as an example and inspiration to them to create a readymade.

 

 

Portofolio: Diario de Victoria.

Una de las actividades mas entretenidas que realizamos en clase, fue primero investigar y aprender sobre las vidas de Victoria y Silvina Ocampo, hermanas de una importante familia de hace ya unos años. Al investigar sobre ellas y en la sociedades que vivieron, pudimos darnos cuenta de la situación en la que vivía la mujer en ese momento. Es por esto, que escribimos un diario intimo como si fuéramos Victoria describiendo sus sentimientos de una situación particular en la que se vio traicionada o dolida.

En mi diario decidí hablar sobre cuando Victoria descubrió como su marido, con el cual no tenia una relación amorosa ni mucho menos interesante, se vio digno de traicionarla con su padre. Al Victoria encontrar una carta en la cual la conversación entre su marido y padre se basaba en intentar de prohibir que ella se dedicara a lo que quería, decidió tomar la decisión correcta y separase de su marido y solo participar socialmente como una pareja actual.

Elegí hablar sobre esto, porque se puede ver claramente como Victoria decide defender sus derechos y dignidad al interponerse y levantara la voz por que lo que ella quería. No iba a dejar que su marido ni mucho menos su padre, controlaran su vida la cual generaba en ella un gran descontento en ella.

 

26 de noviembre de 1912

Querido diario: 

                     Ha pasado poco tiempo desde que contraje matrimonio, el 8 de noviembre de 1912, con mi marido, Luis Bernardo de Estrada. El mismo proviene de una familia patricia muy católica, conservadora y reconocida socialmente. 

                     Nos conocimos en 1907 durante un partido de tenis en Villa Ocampo, luego Luis Bernardo reapareció en la busca de mi amor. Sin embargo, nunca estuve completamente segura de este matrimonio, tenía severas dudas ya que Estrada exigía una gran dependencia de mi que nunca le hubiese podido otorgar. No quiero ser una mujer atada a un hombre y que interfiera en mis aspiraciones y objetivos.

                      Partimos a nuestra luna de miel hace ya unos días. Vengo con la expectativa de que pueda finalmente, Luis, darse cuenta y progrese en sus actitudes posesivas y desconfiadas que tiene hacia mi. Me angustian y generan en mí la sensación de sofoco, no dejándome ser una mujer libre, solo una con miles de barreras. 

                Asombro más que dolor, al descubrir que Estrada le escribió a mi padre, Manuel Ocampo, que cuando me quedara embarazada mis aspiraciones a ser una actriz desaparecerían. Me sentí traicionada, por parte de ambos. Es por esto, que tome la decisión que cuando lleguemos de Europa, viviremos separados e iremos a reuniones sociales juntos hasta finalmente concretar la separación legal y por fin ser completamente libre, sin ataduras.

                         Victoria Ocampo.

 

Algo en lo que podría haber trabajo mejor es en desarrollo de sentimientos, quizá podría haber agregado mas angustia y sufrimiento, para reflejar lo que realmente Victoria sentía en ese momento. Por otro lado, algo positivo es la redacción y el formato, creo que pude reflejar de alguna manera como ella escribía en ese momento. Escribiendo este diario me di cuenta de la gravedad de que le controlen la vida a una personas, llena de ataduras, restricciones y sin salidas. Victoria Ocampo fue una mujer muy fuerte para ese momento en el cual la sociedad era mucho mas machista y se dejaba ver a la mujer en un ámbito profesional en la literatura como ella quería.

Puedo relacionar esta actividad y el contexto a una de las cuantas películas en la cual se ve el controlamiento de aquella época de las familias hacia una de las mujeres que en este caso es la hija. En la película conocida llamada, «The Notebook» o «Diario de una Pasión», entre medio de su historia de amor se puede ver como no permitían que ella este con el protagonista por sus condiciones sociales y deciden buscar un hombre el cual este bien posicionado económicamente y pueda generar una vida digna para ella. Me parece absurdo como esto podía suceder y quizá hoy en día sigue pasando, pero ya no esta mas presente y naturalizado como hace unos años atrás.

 

 

Portfolio: When we were old

On one of our last literatures classes, we got in pairs and choose a poem from the Part 4 of the “Songs of Ourselves”. With Bianca Ieraci, we decided to look up information about Robert Browning, who wrote Love in a Life. After reading about his past and lovers, we finally started reading  the poem.

Moreover, when we finished, we look up:

  • Literary devices
  • Tone
  • Themes
  • Voice…etc
  • information about the author

This is my presentation:

https://www.slideshare.net/mobile/Pato_Ch/love-in-a-life-robert-browning

Finally, we wrote an essay based on other author that a different group analyzed. My essay is about the poem “When you are Old” bu W. B. Yeast. It’s a very interesting and lovely poem of a woman’s life, the journey from when she was young until the present.

To conclude, Im satisfied with my essay and the analysis that we did, however, I could use more literary devices and analyses more in deep the quotes. Also, it can be related with our nowadays life, because it shows how a man is looking for his dear love the journey and the reflection when se was young.

This is my essay:

Comment closely on how the journey from youth to old age is portrayed in the poem «When you are Old» by W. B. Yeats.

 

         In the poem “When you are Old”, written by William Butler Yeats, the author portrays the journey from youth to old age as a reflection comparing her life with her future and the way in which the person regrets of his personal actions. An elderly woman recalling memories of her younger days. A past lover whispers to her as she looks through a photo album. Basically, the writer is showing that as the woman gets older, she is alone, but she does not have to be lonely. She will always have her memories for companionship in the photo album. 

         At the beginning of the poem, in the first stanza, the poet says that as this old woman is old, she should take up a book and read it slowly. “And nodding by the fire”, she is feeling sleepy and sitting alone in the long winter nights. We can compare her grey hair with all his past, how much she had lived as a symbol of old age. “Full of sleep’. The word “sleep” can be explained as “death”, because it is a natural laziness that comes in a human being as she grows.

         In the second stanza, the speaker represents the theme of reminiscence. The author makes the person in the poem, remember that in her youth, she was loved by many men.”Glad grace”, she will remember her beauty and youth that have faded into the past, so has their love. Some love her because of her beauty and some with a true love, a faithful love to her soul. This shows how the main woman of the poem suffers this transition of remembering old past memories to the present. 

          The author representa her souls as a “pilgrim”, this is a traveler, literally one who has come from far away, who is on a journey to a holy place. Typically, this is a physical journey to some place of special significance to the adherent of a particular religious belief system. This is compare as her souls, travelling in time, from the past to the present, to the future.There was one man only who loved her souls, not her physical beauty alone but also the purity of her soul behind her beautiful shape. 

         In the last stanza, he presents a situation focus in the woman’s old age. She remember that she rejected this man who loved her that this memorie and prediction will make her sad. She gave up her opportunity to be with him, because t seems clearly that he stopped looking for her. “And paced upon the mountains overhead

And hid his face amid a crowd of stars.” This quote predicts(future) that because of her rejection, both will never find peace. One day they will die, become part of the sky and stars as being part of a memorie.

          In conclusion, the journey from youth to old age is portrayed in the poem throughout the three stanzas. We can understand how the author, William Butler, conveys the idea of past, present and future in an old woman’s life. Bringing to life, through imagery, old memories and places.

Portfolio:

 

         In one of the first classes of November, we had a new challenge. Write a poem. How? Pato could just asked us to grab pen and paper and write, but instead, she told us to look for a picture that we took inside our cellphone’s gallery. The activity consisted on writing five nouns, five adjectives and five verbs that we could see through the picture.

        Secondly, when we found the words, we should think of different literary devices and write a sentence or words that came to our mind, of course inspired in the photo. 

        Tertiary, this was the time to start writing he poem. In which we should include all the metaphors, similes… the nouns, verbs and adjectives that we thought before. 

        Moreover, while looking for the right picture, found a caption that I took on Le Parc’s exposition. He uses mirrors and light to create shadows and different visual effects. 

 

         When I started writing the poem, I realized that some days ago I wrote some sentences (short poems) and were related to the idea that I wanted to transmit, so I decided to cut some phrases and combine them. The strength of this work is that readers could understand it in different manners, with different views. Besides, it also have weaknesses, that by having some many interpretations, readers can be confused of the main idea. Also, that the poem mix different knowledge and may be a little disorganized. Moreover, If I could have more time, I could improve the organisation and also could include more ideas with more deep thoughts. 

 

If I could connect this project with real life, I would relate the poem with our souls and feelings. How we gave ups but we stand ups, how our feelings change everyday. By writing this poem, I realized that sometimes people doesn’t show how they are feelings until they give up, and in that moment we transformed our feeling to fire. 

 

When we finish writing the poem, we join together with a classmate and give feedback using the following chart. It was really useful to follow how to give feedback, because if not, It would be more complicated and difficult to analyze each aspect of the classmate’s poem.

Del Amor y otros Demonios: Introducción a la novela

Hace ya un par de clases de Literatura, cuando comenzamos a leer el libro, El Amor y otros Demonios, luego de leer el epílogo, escribimos un cuento basándose en algunos aspectos de los que se describen. La consigna del trabajo se basaba en imaginar una breve historia en la que la protagonista sea la pequeña de cabellera interminable. Es por esto, que creemos nosotros mismo una breve versión personificada. 

Elegí hacer una entrada de portfolio para esta actividad creativa, porque creo que escribir y crear una historia sobrenatural, es un ejercicio para nuestra imaginación. Podemos explotar nuestras ideas creando algo con un resultado completamente positivo e entretenido, que llame la atención.

Por un lado, creo que lo positivo de este trabajo, las fortalezas, son que es texto entretenido para inspirar gente que se anime a desarrollar historias diferentes a las tradiciones, como hizo García Marquez con nosotros. Sin embargo, lo negativo de este trabajo es que podría haberme explayado mas y haber invertido mas ideas con datos históricos relacionados con la historia, eso es algo que podría haber hecho si hubiese tenido mas tiempo. Ademas, es algo en lo que podría mejorar, comprometiéndome mas con la historia para poder creer nuevos sucesos en el texto y algo mas entretenido.

“En las lejanas islas del caribe, se sabia acerca de una leyenda, una historia mas bien. En lo profundo del convento de Santa Clara, las tumbas y lapidas tomaban vida, el convento estaba en las ruinas. El tejado se derrumbo sobre las mismas, impidiendo poder alcanzarlas. Ladrillos y piedras caían sobre las tumbas. La celadora del convento, al escuchar el derrumbe, camino cautelosa al fondo del convento. No era necesario abrir una puerta, ya no estaba. Todo parecía destruido, como si alguien hubiese irrumpido. Observó las lapidas, las ruinas, y se encontró con una pequeña luz dorada entre medio de dos tumbas. Al leer quienes eran, se dio cuenta que la tumba era de una niña, que había muerto hace algunos años. Al acercarse a la luz dorada, logró ver que era la pequeña luz que brillaba. Era un pequeño caballo de porcelana, con bordados y dibujos dorados. 

 

Escuchó un ruido detrás de ella, al girar su torso, logro ver como una niña de doce años reencarnaba desde la tumba. El cabello colgaba desde las raíces de su cabellera. El brillo cegaba a toda persona que admirara su pelo, como si cada parte de la niña brillara. Su piel era pálida, pero tomaba color cada vez que tocaba su pelo brillante. No tenía casi ropa, su cabello cubría todo su cuerpo, caía como si fuera un vestido de novia de varios metros.”

 

En conclusión, al escribir este fragmento, pude ver como se siguen utilizando los mismo relatos hoy en día y como se van creando nuevos. No buscaba escribir algo tan interesante, pero al agarrar una hoja y una lapicera nuevas ideas pueden surgir y también nuevos errores para mejorar. Es así como logré escribir este fragmento basado en una novela. El contexto del texto, me inspira a relacionarlo con el conocido festival llamado «Día de los Muertos», sostiene la creencia de que el día 28 de octubre llegan las almas de las personas que murieron trágicamente o de «desgracia» y el día 30 de octubre llegan las almas del limbo (estas son las almas de los niños o personas que murieron sin haber recibido el sacramento del bautismo). El día 31 de octubre, llegan las almas de los niños y se van el día 1 de noviembre,se dice que, durante la noche los niños salen a pedir «La Calaverita» que consiste en pedir de casa en casa limosna para comprar ceras y encenderlas en el templo para las almas olvidadas o que quizá no se sabe que han muerto, y al encender estas velas ellas tendrán luz. Sin embargo, hoy en día, este evento es algo mas comercial, en el cual los niños en vez de pedir limosna piden golosinas.

My Blog: Literatura

My blog: lengua

 

A principios de este año, con Pato Chujman comenzamos a realizar un portfolio que consiste en crear 10 entradas en el blog conectando los trabajos de clase con nosotros, nuestra vida cotidiana, que nos gusta, nuestra personalidad. Existen tres pasos para realizar correctamente uno, estos son: relatar la experiencia, relacionar la experiencia de clase con algún otra cosa escolar o personal y 

 

Por otro lado, este año y el posterior, comencé a encontrarme a mi misma. Soy una persona muy introvertida, me siento incómoda al mostrar quien de verdad soy, es por eso que prefiero no opinar ni compartir lo que me gusta con personas a las que no les interesa o me juzgan. Es por eso que haber empezado a leer y a encontrarme más, me facilita poder conectar mi vida personal con trabajos del colegio. Generalmente, me interesa aprender acerca del arte, como escribir mejor y nuestra vida cotidiana. Me considero una alumna responsable, antes más que ahora, pero aun asi cumplo con las tareas y me encanta tomar nota, que es algo que me ayuda a poder seguir las clases. Considero importante aprender cómo convivir con los demas, como trabajar en grupo y como podemos exigirnos más a nosotros, desafiandonos a algo que creemos imposible.

 

Por último, no veo la hora de terminar el colegio y empezar la facultad. El año pasado decidí que quería estudiar Gastronomía en el IAG, que pertenece a la UADE. Es una carrera que exige mucho tiempo y exigencia física, por las horas que requiere cocinar estando parada. Me gustaría especializarme más en la pastelería, por eso quiero conseguir el título de “Patisserie”. Si es posible, quiero trabajar durante la carrera para luego poder viajar y trabajar en otros países. Además, poder abrir un lugar mio seria mi meta, seria un lugar para principalmente poder tomar el té y disfrutar de buena música.

 

        Durante el primer trimestre de Lengua, estuvimos realizando diferentes actividades relacionadas a esta pregunta, ¿Qué es la Literatura Argentina? Escribimos ensayos y realizamos una rutina de pensamiento como última actividad.

        Asimismo, de las actividades que más disfrute, fue la rutina de pensamiento que realizamos al final de todo. Escribimos que es lo que pensábamos que era la literatura argentina al principio del tema. Fue complicado no incluir nuevos detalles y argumentos estudiados, ya que estuvimos analizando la literatura argentina. Sin embargo, a la hora de escribir la definición, me di cuenta que ya tenía una idea de lo que era, pero, tambien que habia adquirido un monton de informacion. Trate de reducir mis conocimientos así luego en la segunda pregunta, que consistía en decir lo que ahora pienso, puede incluir todo lo que había aprendido en los ensayos y el cuadro que Camila había hecho de la literatura argentina, su definición y aspectos que abarca. 

       Estudiamos acerca de Julio Cortázar, Jorge Luis Borges y otros famosos escritores argentinos, que hacen notar la importancia y lo entretenido que es leer clásicos de la literatura argentina. Al comenzar a leer este tipo de libros, no me daba cuenta que más allá de un texto, hay un montón de aspectos y comparaciones en las que se pueden pensar y analizar. Se relacionan,también, con ideas y culturas de la actualidad. Como por ejemplo, los conflictos políticos y como se ve reflejada la corrupción y los gobiernos de facto hoy en día en comparación a unos años atras. 

“Love in a Life” Robert Browning: Portfolio

Portfolio: «Love in a Life», Robert Browing

In pairs, we choose one poem from section four from the «Songs of Ourselfs», our literature poem book. With Bianca Ieraci, we decided to analize «Love in a life» by Robert Browing, obviously we didn´t know what the poem was it about, so when we started reading it, we knew what we fall completely for it. Actually, when we finished Reading the poem, we instantly knew that there were too many things and aspect to analize, mainly the title. Furthermore, we had a list of different ítems that we had to focus on, this ones were for example, literary devices, the title, symbols, the voice…etc.

This is our complete presentation about the poem written by Robert Browing, it is about a man, posibbly himself, looking to his love. He states that he won’t care about the woman’s past because there is so much of her to explore and learn. He writes this because he looked into the past of his former lovers too much and it caused problems in his present and future.

It was a pleasure to read a piece of poetry from this excellent writter who can perfectly describe and make readers want to continue Reading until the end to know if he finally finds his lover. Morover, after doing this presentation and analyzing his love story, I realized that we could focus deeper in the poem. However, in my opinión i thins that is complete.

One way in which we can connect this man´s love story with real life, is the way in which he looks despertly for this woman, we think. Nowadays people want money and love because if we have money and not love from our families and Friends, why do we need too much money if it doesn´t fullfil our heart? It is a trival questions, because the mayorty of people prefers love before money, don´t you?

Portfolio: Virginia Woolf


The  Lady In The Looking Glass

In the last literature class we read the Lady in the Looking Glass, a story written by Virginia Woolf. In her story, she conveys a vividly image of the reflection of herself. Her real self, which was the inside of the house and the outside of the house, the garden, which represents her superficial side. The garden was  full of colourful flowers and trees, besides, the inner of the house was dark, destroyed. 

 

After reading the story, we answer six questions in pairs. Then,  we analysed the text through them and at the end we draw a perception of the house. The inside and the outside. By answering the questions it was useful to completely understand the message that Woolf wanted to transmit in her story. The imagery and message are both the strong items that she conveys. So, by drawing and answering questions, we could learn and increased the knowledge of the story.

 

I select this experience to talk about, because I consider extremely interesting the story. How a woman in the victorian society lived and had to hide herself by letters or tried to reflect herself through a mirror. Also, because she compare and goes deep into the contrast with the house and the symbol of darkness. This sample should be included in my portfolio, because it shows the strengths and the weaknesses of women through a literary poem when thay couldn’t be completely free. 

 

Furthermore, If we could have more time, I would probably work better in the drawing. Try to show better in a more sub-realistic way her life. However, we analyse very deep the questions and dedicate time so that the answers could be reflected in the drawing. I loved this piece of work, specially because we convey literature with art, because is another way in which we, humans, can express ourselves in different styles.

E-portfolio Lengua

Luego de leer, El Coronel no tiene quien le escriba, en grupos recibimos la consigna de preparar una presentación basada en una de la caraterísticas propia de latinoamérica. Al dividirnos en los grupos, primero buscamos información de nuestra característica, la corrupción. 

 

Buscamos las características principales, la definición y diferentes aspectos relevantes para poder relacionarlo con el libro. Además, investigamos cómo afecta la corrupción en algunos países de latinoamérica, no solo en Colombia, que es el país en el cual se basa la historia del Coronel. Si no que también decidimos añadir otros país para poder comprar los diferentes gobiernos y como la corrupción fue aumentando o disminuyendo a medida que pasan los años. 

 

Por último, buscamos una cita de El Coronel no tiene quien le Escriba, relacionada a la corrupción en Colombia. Cómo afecta a los protagonistas, como interviene el país y la manera en la que se relaciona con el año y las condiciones de otros gobiernos. 

 

Esta actividad fue de las más creativas que realizamos junto a un cuento basándonos en la historia de otro libro que leímos, El Amor y otros Demonios. Al juntarnos en grupos, fue más fácil poder discutir y dividirnos las aspectos para analizar y luego escribirlo en la cartulinai. En mi opinión, creo que hacer cosas más creativas, con dibujos y colores, es más entretenido y más ágil que escribir textos, sin embargo, hacer ensayos y realizar actividades escritas en la mayoría de los casos son necesarios. Por otro lado, creo que no tendríamos que haber incluido tanto texto en la cartulina, aunque, sea linda esteticamente.

 

Por último, al realizar esta actividad, descubrí que se puede relacionar con nuestra vida cotidiana. La corrupción es algo que se ve hoy en día en países como Venezuela, hay millones de artículos, noticias y documentales donde se puede ver como vive la gente en esa sociedad y como el gobiernos y sus integrantes abusan del poder para beneficio propio. Hoy en día, los medios de comunicación, han avanzado mucho porque podemos ver que, por solo a través de una pantalla, como vive la gente y como los explotan. Por tener un celular, podemos enterarnos de grandes cosas, que hace años no hubiese sido posible. Por ejemplo, en El Coronel no tiene quien Le escriba, solo la informaciones se obtiene clandestinamente por diarios de papel, no eran posible en esa época sacar una foto y difundirla por todo Colombia como si puede suceder hoy en dia.
