Q is for Quantify 

Quantification is a large topic to wrap my head around and get my thoughts on it clear enough to shrink into a decent blog post but here goes. You've been warned. The idea of quantification has become pervasive, or I'm just becoming aware of how important it is in everyday life. Almost everything is quantified …

Q is for Quilting 

In thinking about community-based art, or art that is socially engaged, I began thinking about art that is mostly just social. In the mid-19th century, and of course beyond then, women, in particular, would participate in quilting bees. Quilting bees provided women with a space to catch up, gossip, and simply spend time together while, …

Q is for Quality 

In her famous book "The Artist's Way," Julia Cameron advocates the idea of "morning pages"--hand-writing three pages of stream-of-consciousness text first thing every morning. This practice is meant to clear the clutter from one's mind so that creativity can emerge, but also to chronicle any ideas which may come up when your mind is still …

Q is for Corporeal (Art, Sculpture) 

Artist Andrea Hasler made a meat tent and called it art. The piece, titled Matriarch, actually references a 1981 anti-nuclear protest, the Greenham Common Women’s Peace Camp, where 30,000 women camped out at a British air force base. It was probably the largest sustained women’s protest ever organized. The artist has made a work that references …

Q is for Quandary 

Q is for Quandary 1. Predicament Like in elementary school when you had two best friends and you greatly feared the moment when the teacher asked you to choose partners or you had to pick a seat on the bus for your fieldtrip to the pumpkin patch and you didn’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings, …

Q is for Qualms 

Art that has humbled its aesthetic aspirations in favor of social values demonstrates agency in many different directions. However, I remain suspicious about the full cost of abandoning an aesthetic priority. Even with the crucial difference between a singular priority of an aesthetic product, and more democratic, socially minded engagements with aesthetic processes (the ontological-behavioral …

Q is for Questioning 

I have come to realize (after more that two decades of teaching middle school) that one of the most important things I can teach my students is how to ask their own questions. If they can learn to be seekers of knowledge, rather than passive recipients then I will have done something worthwhile. They can …

Q is for Quotes 

A quote is defined as a group of words from a text. The assumption seems to be that quotes represent the text as a whole or the best parts of it. As a society of the instant, we seem to be obsessed with quotes from posting pictures of quotes on our Facebook feed to searching …

Q is for Quality of Experience 

Is a negative aesthetic experience as valuable as a positive one? Before I attempt to answer this question I believe I first need to define what constitutes an aesthetic experience, what are its requisites. I'd like to try and start from a broad definition and gradually isolate what distinguishes this event from more mundane and …

Q is for Quietness 

The extent to which quietness operates within an environment directly contributes to how individuals comport themselves because aural stimulation is nearly unavoidable. Based upon our interactions in class, if quietness persists after a few seconds, someone will say something about the current subject of discussion. Perhaps the space between our said statements evokes anxiety for …

Q is for Question 

Despite not reaching a definitive conclusion as to what knowledge is in Plato’s Theaetetus, the discussion within the dialogue itself provides the reader with valuable insight. Three main answers to the central question are explored. While each response is subsequently countered through Socrates’ challenges and refutations, what knowledge is agreed not to be proves just …

Q is for Quicksand 

1.As a child, one of the most terrifying natural phenomena I knew of was quicksand. Movies and TV shows depicted quicksand as this menace that could exist anywhere and suck you under to a slow and horrifying fate. For most of my childhood, my brother and I stayed on the lookout for quicksand. 2. Quicksand …

Q is for Question 

Dewey (1933) explicitly suggests how to practice and train thought of children through play, language, observation, knowledge, and teaching methods. Dewey thinks that questions are the key to thinking. Regarding questions, I used to think that they are problems on exams, but through reading, I come to understand that Dewey’s explanations about questions are more …
