Violence is what makes the world go around, said no one, but it seems eerily true. You could look anywhere in the world and find terrible things happening. Isis just claimed responsibility for what happened in Sri Lanka, China has started to militarize Pakistan. Myanmar is jailing reporters who opposed the dictatorship in place, it seems as though the Russians just hacked into the US elections system. The US in general is just a political mess, people in Venezuela are trying to escape a ruthless dictator, and the stories just go on and on. Sadly this has almost always been the case in human history, people doing horrible things to each other for personal gain. The violence seems to have no end in site. But there is some light in all of this darkness, documentation. The progress of the digital world has helped us see things that we never would have had a window to before. It has not always stopped the violence from occurring, but it has made people who do these things way more cautious. And maybe one day, will stop all of these events in general.
Our new found use of technology has helped us in many ways. Things that we never could have seen before are now accessible to almost everyone. These crazy events that happen on the other side of the world can still be seen. But sadly this has left us with a new problem, accountability. Since now everyone is seeing everything, it is assumed that the problem is being taken care of. And as long as everyone is assuming that it is someone else's problem, nothing is going to get done. This is called the bystander effect, which according to psychology today is “the presence of others discourages an individual from intervening in an emergency situation”. This was first just seen as an issue with people who are seeing the same even with their own eyes. But now with the internet spreading everything, this effect has spread with it. Leaving society with a problem that very much so needs to be addressed.
A clear example of this effect would be facebook live and things that have been broadcasted on it. An example of this was reported on by Times Magazine, when a 15 year old girl was sexually assaulted on a facebook live video that was viewed according to a source by 40 people. Despite this no one called the police. An example outside of the internet would be when Ilan Halimi was kidnapped in paris by Moroccan “Barbarians” to try and get money from his family because of the fact that he was jewish reported the New York Times. While in captivity several of the neighbors to the place that he was being held in heard the commotion and in some instances actually saw what was happening. Yet again, no one called the authorities or tryed to put an end to what was happening in any way. This is a really big physiological problem that we as humans have yet to be able to fully understand. The list of examples is so long that there is an example of this effect in the bible, when Jesus is telling a lawyer about how everyone is everyone's neighbor. And he gives an example of this happening, were several people pass by a man on the side of a road who has been beaten. And in the only person who stopped to help him was a samaritan. What this story is trying to say is very important, regardless if you are religious or not, it exposes human nature and people who aim to change it and people who just go along with the same old same old.
As I have said many many times this is a problem, but I haven’t really gone in to how to fix it. And that really is the problem, because to fix this we need to do something that humans by nature do not do. And that is accountability, and we can see this in multiple aspects of life. Everything from climate change, to who is responsible for finishing the benchmark. It all comes down to people owning up to their mistakes, and not only doing that but fixing them. Which is something that we don’t typically do, it is part a of our subconscious. This is why we need to start actively thinking about this consciously. Even if people just took a little more initiation when seeing something, the world would be a much better place. Not even what happens on social media, but if you see someone getting called call the police. Or if it is your job to do something actually do it, and don’t just depend on others to get it done. And even if it isn’t your job, and you just see someone in need, do something about it instead of just leaving it for someone else. I am not at all exempt from this, and I really do think that by fixing the little things it could affect things that I didn’t even expect. If every single person just took on a little more responsibility, we could actually solve some of the worlds problems instead of ignoring them.

My element was Cobalt, it´s abbreviation was Co and atomic number was 27. My element was discovered in 1735. It has been and still is used to turn vases blue. To make this print first we had to create three different designs that we wanted to use for our prints. I choose the one that I thought was the best and made the final design. Then I put my design on a plate backwards so it would print out correctly. Finally I rolled ink on it and then printed it on paper. Then for one of my prints I created a paper background. If I was to do this a second time I think all I would do different was be more consistent with the paint. Other than that I think I did a good job. But that was still the best part of the project. I had a lot of fun painting everything and then pasting it on paper. It was fun because it was very relaxing and very cool to see the final product.
A. What is negative space (explain this concept to a fourth grader that has never heard of it)
Negative space is an art form that uses the space in and around an object. This means either the space inside an object will either be light or dark. If it is light, then the area around it will be dark. If the object is dark, the area around it will be light. Creating two different versions of the same image that join together.
B. Explain how you found negative space in your cut out?
You can see negative space in my cut out because of the contrast of the two sides. The left side’s border is green while the inside is red. On the right side the inside is green while the outside is red. This makes them opposites from one another, meaning my image has found negative space.
C. Why does it help an artist to see in negative space?
It can create very cool contrast from one side of an image to another. Thus creating a unique and professional piece. Especially since it is geometric and aesthetically pleasing. With enough work you can create something amazing, and maybe even museum worthy. Or you can create nice refrigerator art.
D. Does seeing in negative space enhance drawings, why or why not?Yes because it makes either the inside of outside of an image pop out from the rest of the picture. It shows two different worlds of the same drawing in the same frame . Creating a one of a kind art piece that looks amazing. Both sides make the other stand out. As I hope you see in the image I created.
Printmaking is important because it allows artist to create artwork in a unique and distinct way. It creates a one of a kind masterpiece with very little materials. Infact, that is what sets Printmaking apart from a lot of other artforms. You do not need much to create it. Printmaking has been around for centuries because it did not need all of the new technology we have today to make a museum worthy piece. You can even use different sets of material to create it. So no matter if you live in a place with lots of wood, or lots of stone, you can create a printmaking masterpiece with those few materials.
Printmaking was invented some time in between 500 BC - 100 AD. The Ancient Egyptians were the first to use printmaking. They would use wood instead of paper to print the artwork. But around the same time the Chinese were doing the exact same thing, but they used stone instead. Not to far behind, the Indians would cut from plank and printed pictures, as well as text until 1300. During the 15th century word finally reached Europe and they also began printmaking. Inspired by the glass windows in churches. As I stated before printmaking survived even until today. We know this because graffiti and stencil are a forms of printmaking.Printmaking was so revolutionary because of the fact that we can find it being used by humans all over the globe. I explained this in the last paragraph that India, China, and Ancient Egypt were all starting to use printmaking around the same time. They all use different materials, but they all get the same amazing result. This is still eminent today because artist all over the word still use the technique. And the fact that it survived that long is impressive on it’s own. Even people who just draw for fun can create amazing printmaking masterpieces. In addition printmaking has helped create many other forms of art work.
To predict the image above I want to start by looking at the little details in the drawing. The ink brings out every little detail that the maker had intended it to have in the original drawing. We can see all of the people engraved into the hills and the agricultural aspect that we see everywhere we look. But what I think makes this drawing really interesting is the fact that the creator decided to add cows. In my opinion it makes it look very cool along with the singular house. The contrast between the light parts really are what make everything else pop out. Which is the point of printmaking. The texture that they made, especially on the trees, made the artwork even more amazing that it already was. The creator did not leave a lot of open space, which leaves a lot more room for more detail. I interpreted this as a country side place where agriculture is a big component in everyday life. And the animals I noticed show that the farm is not just about crops, but also harvest animals. All in all I really liked this drawing. The special details that the author used really put the final touch on an already amazing piece. But I am still wondering exactly where this drawing is supposed to be, I’m not sure where exactly Sulu Land is.
