Repository of my thoughts and images of art, literature, travel, and life.

What is Art?

What is art? That is a simple question with a very complicated answer. For this week’s lecture, I will use my old lecture notes and give it a new twist. Let us examine initial definitions of art found everywhere and critique it, as well as examine objects that are accepted as art. Here is the link to the presentation:

What is Art? Lecture

Also, let us take another aspect into art perspectives using my Prezi presentation on the subject:

Introductory Notes in Art and Aesthetics

I am looking forward to reading the journal entries. After this week’s lecture, we are watching The Artist. Excited? I know I am. Take this film as a challenge my dear student!

Thank you Bacolod judges for bringing this over. Been craving this for like 5 years. Yum! #mtg #treats
Ok naman daw yung ramen pero mas masarap pa rin daw yung beef wonton noodle soup sa Mr. Ube. Lol. Little one likes her noodles! #toddlerfood #toddlernarratives
Sunday, let's play! #toddlernarratives
Our little ball of energy. I wish we have more accessible public parks here in the Philippines. I abhor malls, it was just easier to visit when she was sooo small. Now that she's bigger, commercial spaces with grass, gardens, and outdoor spaces are our compromise. We make do with what we have and encourage play as much as we can. You know she had fun when her clothes are absolutely filthy after. Lol. #toddlernarratives #toddlerplay
A few snaps with the makeshift pull toy. Also, I rock the exhausted mom look with a giant coffee cup. Lol. Btw, Family Mart has cheap, good UCC brewed coffee. Their pastries are quite nice for their price point as well. Sunday treat while racing after the toddler. #toddlernarratives #toddlerplay
Never thought that her makeshift pull toy would create such a stir in the playground. Lol. #gamerchef mentioned earlier that the little one might want a pull toy, as he saw her playing with the ones at school. Those things are expensive though, so I thought of making her some from the toys she already have at home. I was looking for extra shoelaces when I remembered I have some ribbons stashed somewhere. Our place is small, so we took her to that playground again so she can play with it better. Turns out, lots of kids were so curious about the pull toy, several kids even tried to grab it from her. Such simple things can bring about joy. #gamerchef also thinks that most kids play with gadgets nowadays so when they see simple toys it is fascinating for them. Anyway, the little one enjoyed her pull toy and I hope we'll come up with more interesting toys in the future. #toddlernarratives #toddlerplay
