ARTS BLOG: Georgia O'Keefe

Intention of the artist: It was to paint orchids, from a close up perspective.
Quality of the work: Georgia is one of the most famous female american artist before women were recognized as great artists.
Response of the audience: When O'Keeffe began painting orchids she received a lot of attention because some critics said that they resembled the intimate female parts.

Analyze the piece of work again using Art and Knowledge criteria (imitiation, communication, and education).

Imitation:Georgia O'Keeffe's reputation of her large formated flowers, is what brought attention to her paintings. It is said that these contain hidden sensuality in them. Her paintings, are very distinct, she is widely known for these, and actualy made her famous.Her flower paintings are very unique not similar to any other artist.
Communication:Her paintings are very colorful and very different. Her art is between realism and abstract art. She communicates the beauty in natures colors, and a sensuality that is evident when you see them.
Education: I think everyone would learn from knowing her paintings, she is one of the most famous american artists.Born 1n 1886, and during her lifetime, artists struggled, but women were discriminated against. Her success was a role model for other women.

1. Describe the desired outcomes of the experiment.
- To see if people can act on their own and have their own choices even when there is peer pressure.
2. Describe the research done to reach the desired outcome.
- What Asch did was have a group of people pretend that they have nothing to do with the experiment even though all but one person is in on it. What they wanted to see if people conform to what other people around them do or if people will follow their own instinct. This may be a problem that is happening all over the world right now.
3. What was the outcome and what did it tell us about humans or human nature?
- In this video along with many other experiments that Asch has done, people will always go with their instinct the first time around, but as they see that they are "mistaken" and the other people are correct they start going along with the current and will ignore their natural instincts because they must be incorrect since there was more people going along with another number. People have a tendency to conform to what other people are saying and that is what is wrong with the world people need to go along with their instinct instead of following other people.

In different cultures people may have a different view on global warming because some people are affected more than others.
In diffrent backrounds people may see gloal warming as a scam or not depending on how they are informed about it. The source where the information goes to and the person it goes to plays a big role in how people see things. So people from different social back rounds or beliefs may see global warming as something that is false or something that is true.
In ways of thinking people may go on their morals, if an event is bad or good or true or false. The reason for this is that when people are raised they choose morals for themselves so on this particular topic, global warming fact or fiction people will see the hoax in it or the truth in it depending on their morals.

In my own personal opinion, I have always believed in Global Warming, in my house hold everyone has been very cautious these past years. After see the information that was brought forward on Al Gore I have started to have my doubts.
