Intention Criterion Tok Intention Criterion Tok Presentation Transcript

  • The Intention Criterion TOK- The Arts (Lesson 1...or is it? Maybe we are actually all part of an enormous mars bar the size of the universe! Sunday, February 15, 2009

  • Stay in those groups! Imagine that your group is part of a drama company employed by an art gallery to bring alive, the least artistic item from your previous discussion. Persuade your audience in a brief role-play how this item has artistic merit. Sunday, February 15, 2009
  • Podcast Listen. Is this art? Discuss... Sunday, February 15, 2009
  • Advertising & art? Does selling a product through advertising invalidate art? Jot down your reaction to the following three adverts in your journal. (We will revisit later) www.youtube.com/watch?v=rC-wPteyl6U www.youtube.com/watch? v=qY1T4YAzs14&feature=related http://www.youtube.com/watch? v=Uj6G1C6c0uw Sunday, February 15, 2009

  • Documentary Filmmaking as Art? Watch a short clip from Night & Fog (d. Alain Resnais, 1955) http://hk.youtube.com/watch? v=7IYVkJCfPwc Representational aesthetic theory suggests that the more accurately reality is depicted, the better art is. To what extent does Resnais provide an objective, unmediated view of reality? How much is the director trying to engage with your emotions? Does this matter? Sunday, February 15, 2009
  • Night & Fog Sunday, February 15, 2009
  • Cubist Expression How does film editing, framing and the subjective view of the ‘artist,’ influence the work of and our interpretation of that work? How clearly have Resnais & Picasso conveyed reality in their two pieces of art? Sunday, February 15, 2009
  • What does the textbook say? Van de Lagemaat’s definition of the intention criterion: ‘According to the intention criterion, something is a work of art if it is made by someone with the intention of evoking an aesthetic response in the audience.’(p.331) Sunday, February 15, 2009
  • Peter Jackson- Adapting The Lord of the Rings Watch the short clip taken from The Fellowship of the Ring (Extended Edition...yes, the knower- Mr Williamson- is very sad indeed!) www.youtube.com/watch? v=yD4ozRWRXnE Pair work: Is it possible to use the intention criterion when a film director is attempting to adapt work? If so, what are the problems? Sunday, February 15, 2009
  • Lord of the Rings Clip... Sunday, February 15, 2009
  • JRR Tolkien & Allegory... Read Tolkien’s viewpoint on possible interpretations of The Lord of the Rings as allegory. (http://www.btinternet.com/ ~p_cooper/foreword.html) Juxtapose with Stephen King’s view, that Sauron (the villain) in the book is nothing less than a ‘...thinly veiled Hitler in drag.’ Sunday, February 15, 2009
  • The Ring Community Allan Lee’s artwork... Is Tolkien’s world collaborative? / Sunday, February 15, 2009
  • Writing communities... How do we make sense of the ‘intention criterion’ when considered in relation to writing communities like Wikipedia? www.livejournal.com is an online community website designed for users to evaluate one another’s art. Sunday, February 15, 2009
  • Student led Investigation (Group) Choose one famous piece of art. How useful is the intension criterion in evaluating this piece of art? (Use social networking sites to discuss this further outside of class time if you like: http://avline.abacusline.co.uk/ pictures/jpeg/jpeg.htmwish... What criticisms of this approach exist? Provide a short 2-3 minutes presentation on your findings. Sunday, February 15, 2009
  • Potential Knowledge Issues How has the development of online writing communities (like wikis) challenged traditional definitions of art? To what extent is art a valid AOK when only one-third of students taking the IB Diploma at SIS opt for an art based subject? Sunday, February 15, 2009
