Representative work

Instructions

 

Choose a work of art that in some way expresses your sensibility, your values, your taste, your style. It doesn’t necessarily have to be your favorite work or the most important for sentimental reasons. But it should be one that you feel does a good job of communicating something about you, something that you think is important. The work can be of any type, a painting, a photograph, a piece of music, a building, a poem, or a story. Post it on your blog.

First, describe the work. What details are important to it? What details appeal the most to you? Explain what about the work speaks to you, and how it speaks about you. What themes does the work raise?  

 

Submit the URL that will take me to the work and your analysis of it by simply copying and pasting it in the assignment submission window. Your analysis should be thoughtful, thorough, and clearly written in grammatical English.

This assignment should be 300 words and will be assessed on its formal clarity, the quality of the writing and editing, its degree of engagement with its topic, its creativity/inventiveness/originality of ideas, and the sophistication of thought it expresses.
