Ecological Concerns to Homeowners & Architects

Answer the following questions using vocabulary and ideas from the lectures and book.

· Please make sure each answer is thoughtful, edited for grammar and spelling errors, and at least 4-5 COMPLETE sentences.

· Be as specific as possible and use examples to support EVERY statement.

· Write your answers in your own words (not taken directly from your readings or outside resources).

1. The concern over deforestation has created a demand for greener construction materials and novel approaches to sustainable architectural design. Green architects, such as Mike Reynolds, use materials such as tires, cans & bottles, rammed earth, and straw bales to build homes. What problems or benefits do you think may arise from Reynold’s approach to domestic architecture? Should ecological concerns be important to homeowners & architects? Why or why not?

2. Andy Warhol created myriad screen-printed artworks that focused on food – his one “great extravagance” – and that appropriated imagery from popular advertising, many times repeating the imagery over and over. Consider the context of the 1950s and 1960s when Warhol and Pop Art gained popularity. Why did Warhol choose screen printing as his medium? Why did he choose the foods he did? What do the foods he highlighted have in common? What do the food he chose say about American culture? If you were creating an artwork of food, which one item would you choose and why?

3. Conception, gestation, and birth have been the subject of narrative art since early human history. The artworks, ranging from small figurines to large scale sculpture, visualized the mystery & fascination of reproduction. In fact, reproduction is one of the earliest themes to emerge in the art historical record that occurred across time and cultures. Chapter 6 introduced myriad artworks dating to the Paleolithic period to more contemporary works. Choose 3 artworks from the textbook that date from different periods and cultures to compare. What do the artworks have in common? What are some differences? What do you attribute the differences to? Is it a personal choice by the artist? Are the differences more cultural?

4. As stated in Chapter 7, many religions do not have images of God or any holy person. Instead some religions, such as Islam, places of worship are adorned with decorative, abstract patterns rather than realistic representations of their deity/deities. Does the lack of religious icons take away from the spiritual experience? Why or why not? Why do some religions forbid depictions of their deities while others do not?

5. Life, death, and the afterlife are universal concerns expressed in artworks that span time and cultures. What are the five purposes for creating tombs or commemorative artworks outlined in Chapter 8? Choose an artwork from the textbook that aligns with each of the five purposes and explain how it expresses each concern. You should choose a different artwork for each of the five purposes
