MP- U is for Underlining and Annotating 

Most public high school students are not allowed to write at all in their school books, which means they cannot underline and annotate. This I believe prevents them from having a conversation with the text and crafting their own aesthetic from the process of reading. I cannot read without underlining and annotating, and part of …

U is for Us 

It's interesting to see how this primer's evolved into a collective experience for us, especially as the posts get more frequent, fast, and furious. We're responding to each other's ideas, creating new posts inspired by the changing content, and seeing different sides of one another based on what we generate to fill our respective alphabetical …

U is for Utopia 

The first time I heard the word "Utopia" I was 10 years old. I was watching what would later become one of my favorite movies, Ever After a Cinderella story. It stared Drew Barrymore as the main character Danielle, a type of Cinderella. Danielle had an obsession with Thomas More’s Utopia. She would read it …

U is for Unfinished 

Unfinished artwork triggers my brain to the Christopher Buchel and MassMoCA controversy. MassMoCA entered into an agreement with Buchel to have him create a work on their grounds. It was supposed to be Buchel's first major US show about life during wartime. The project went extremely over budget from $160,000 to $300,000 leading to a …

U is for Outsider Art 

"Outsider Art" is a somewhat condescending term for art that is produced outside of the established networks of the art world. In America, the term "outsider" denotes artists that shouldn't be considered "serious", but the cute novelty of their work is enough to make us, the insiders (the critical establishment?) take note. Look at Basquiat …

U is for Underwater 

Underwater is where I love to be. I grew up swimming. It's been such a cold spring that I have not been able to get out into open water yet this year. Swimming in a pool is fine; I get in the water a few times a week. However there is nothing like doing a …

U is for Unmarkering 

I don’t care about my little dog—where, oh where, have the markers gone? Somewhere in the darkest corners of my memory, I have fading images of classes gone by, when the room was filled with magic(al) markers and rags and we wrote on the desks and the walls and everything was good. And then they …

With the rapid development of the Internet, User Interface (UI) design has attracted more and more attention from the market. The UI design is a part of software design, which focuses on user’s experience and interaction. UI design is not only an interface display, but it is a design that explores the relationships between users …

U is for UFOs 

I can say that without question it's become almost absurd to believe that we are alone in the universe. For there to be no other intelligent life out there is near impossible. That being said are beings from other planets visiting earth on a regular basis? I'm not too sure. I think that most UFO …

U is for Understanding a Comfortable Environment 

As a kid I would sometimes stare at the sunlight that the window’s blinds would splice. I could still see the illuminated particles in the air though. ___________________________________________________________________ Understanding a Comfortable Environment Prior to class, in addition to reflecting upon Wordsworth’s poem “Composed upon Westminster Bridge, September 2, 1802” (and their previous analysis thereof), students …

U is for Unseen World 

Particularly in a city like New York, there are times when we feel overwhelmed with sensory stimulation. The multitude of city lights, adverts, the high-pitched sounds of screaming sirens, the pungent smell (and sometimes taste!) of pollution and myriad of angry commuters bumping into you can sometimes be too much to handle. And to think …

U is for Utility 

1. An item's utility is gauged by its ability to satisfy an intended need. This goes beyond objects and into actions and people. When being evaluated on one's job effectiveness, one of the main aspects of assessment would be a person's utility. Does this worker do what is expected? But what if the need is …

U is for Utopia 

As a painting major before, I often used turpentine oil. I remember looking into my oil container to see how much evaporated and would pour in just enough for that day. Learning about the infamous art critic Greenberg's concepts of the Abstract Expressionist "brushstroke" I did a very simple play on it - to create …

U is for Unattached Aesthetic Experience 

Impressive physical feats (ballet, for example) push the performer up against limitations and restrictions of movement in the body and surrounding space, endeavoring to make the body do something extraordinary given its confines and restrictions. The grueling hours of mind (and body)-numbing training involved are well-known as the necessary sacrifices required for meaningful, engaging experience …

U is for Understanding Comics 

For another course I’m taking his semester, called Adolescents and Literature, we had to read Chapter Two (“The Vocabulary of Comics”) of Scott McCloud’s work, Understanding Comics: The Invisible Art. In this Chapter, among many other interesting things, McCloud addresses how we have Lack of awareness of our own faces in detail—only the arrangement of …

U is for Utopia 

In St. Thomas More’s work, Utopia, More is an advocate for the sameness that is so condemned by James Conlon in his essay, “Cities and the Place of Philosophy.” Whereas Conlon explains that the presence of the other is necessary, More’s idea of a perfect society contains an identicalness among its inhabitants. The residents even …

U is for Unruly 

U is for unruly Ingold writes about the notion of straight lines as one that we equate to humanity and culture, and conversely we relate curved lines to nature, even animality. Leach wrote, “visible, wild nature is a jumble of random curves” (p.155) and we can see that in the places of nature we retreat …
