Analyzing an artifact

  1. 1. Analyzing An Artifact <br />
  2. 2. Where to Start?<br />Have to decide on a object/ meeting/ or artifact.<br />It cannot be something that has one simple meaning, the artifact must be something rhetorical.<br />
  3. 3. What is a Rhetorical Artifact?<br />A rhetorical artifact is something that is open for interpretation.<br />Not simple interpretation but deep interpretation. Something specific or special that the artifact posses. <br />Should be something that is more than beats the eye.<br />Has to be an item that an audience can act upon and make difference. <br />
  4. 4. A Rhetorical Audience<br />To understand how the audience can effect the item under discussion we have to be able to understand the rhetorical audience.<br />The rhetorical audience is the direct people that can be affected and make a difference from that specific argument to that particularartifact.<br />They can act upon what you are arguing.<br />
  5. 5. Presenting the Argument Visually and Creatively <br />There are many different ways to present your argument. <br />You have to find the best one that fits your argument best to get your point across to the specific rhetorical audience you direct it to.<br />
  6. 6. Some Ways To Do So<br />There are many other ways as well.<br />
  7. 7. Continuing…..<br />There are many different ways that you can present your argument but you have to decide which way can get your argument across most clearly.<br />Take you time and be creative with it. An essay is not always the best way to go about things. <br />
  8. 8. Example Of One Rhetorical Artifact I Did<br />
  9. 9. The Argument I presented<br />I attending a viewing of the museum exhibit Body Worlds.<br />There I chose to make an argument based on how seeing the object is what gets the reaction from the audience as explained in my essay above.<br />My audience was all people because after seeing the exhibit they come out with a self-realization that they wouldn’t have if it was in some other form.<br />
  10. 10. How I Choose to Present it to get my Point Across<br />I used a PowerPoint to visually present my artifact because it was the main focus of my rhetorical argument.<br />Read through my word document to truly understand why I choose to do a PowerPoint.<br />
  11. 11. Assignment<br /><br />Look at this short commercial and make your own rhetorical analysis.<br />Take your time<br />Choose anyway that your want to present your argument but be able to explain why you did what you did on a separate sheet of paper. <br />
