Remember the LIST of Visual Elements you created for DB#2 from your reading in the Getlein textbook? You used those elements of art to unpack an artwork. In this THIS assignment you will AGAIN use those elements to unpack artwork—the art of Olafur Eliasson.

HOW TO DO WRITING ASSIGNMENT #2. 800 WORDS DUE
Review your lists from Week 2. Visual Analysis should reflect the knowledge you gleaned from the text about the KEY VISAUL ELEMENTS in art. These are the formal elements that make up an artwork. As you read the textbook NOTE AND LIST what Getlein says about each visual element.
Now WATCH the amazing Olafur Eliasson video posted on Blackboard, and notice his use of repeating visual elements, such as circles, light, and color.
Recall and site quotes of the various visual elements from the reading in Chapters 4 & 5.
Select at least three artworks from the video on Eliasson. Describe how these Visual Elements and Principles of Design are used in and how they help to communicate the ideas found in Eliasson’s work shown in the video. Which of his works from the video most engages you and why? This is a “description” paper, so describe as many visual elements as you can and how he uses them. Back your observations with quotes from Getlein. DESCRIBE what you see.
The intention of this paper is for you to notice how Eliasson intentionally uses visual elements to communicate his ideas in his art work. You could consider doing a mindmap for these works and then discuss it in your paper. Please do not use other sources than your textbook and the video. This is NOT a research paper. I don’t want to read about Eliasson’s life or career. Focus on the art.
*CREATE a mindmap on a slide for these works and then discuss it in your paper. Don’t forget to add in the bibliography for both the textbook and the video.*
MIND MAP INSTRUCTIONS: MINDMAP SHOULD BE SEPARATE FROM PAPER!
Key MINDMAP questions are: Place name of artist, artwork, medium, dimension, year, and collection of in the center of the mindmap.
Who made it? Put in the CENTER of the mindmap: Name of Artist, TITLE of work, Size/Dimensions, YEAR, who owns it (if applicable)
Describe Object – Subject. What is going on in this work of art? What can I see just by looking at this art work?
Context in which the artwork was created. Note the year. What do we know about this time? What was going on in this place and/or year? When was it made, and what was happening in art and broader history at that time?
Artist and/or Artistic Style. What do you think the artist was thinking? What was their intension? Why did the artist create this work and what is its meaning to them, and to us now? Does it fit into an artistic style? Note that. Describe the style as you understand it. Back this up with quotes from Getlein.
How was this art work actually made? What are the materials use?
Who paid for it? Why was it created?
Formal Analysis – line, color, perspective, mass, volume, etc. You will learn the elements of art in the next few chapters in Getlein. DESCRIBE what you SEE!
LASTLY CREATE ANOTHER MINDMAP on a slide:
Pick a favorite artwork from the TEXTBOOK and create a mindmap for that work, using key questions to unpack your artwork. To do this you fill in / flesh out more information in the ‘NODES’ as you go along. The more robust you make your mindmap, the easier it is to write the papers/DBs. An example can be found if you Google examples. There is no WRONG mindmap as long as it’s drawn out—do not list the questions.
It is a very useful tool/method to organizing your thoughts. The mindmap must be uploaded to the Discussion Board (here) as a JPEG or image.
