Students will identify a video they think represents Art in Motion. Students will show and analyze the video of their choosing for the class. Students in the audience will discuss this video with the presenter.
How To Analyze
Artwork Identifying Information
Here is where you talk about what your video is trying to communicate to the viewer. Explain what the video is communicating to the audience. Pretend the audience just doesn't get it, and explain what we are seeing.
Sensory Properties (Elements of Art+)
The Sensory Properties, also known as the Elements of Art, describe the building blocks of the video both visually and aurally. Here is where you describe how the artist communicated the content above. This section speaks to artistic style. Answer how the content is communicated rather than what is being communicated.
Formal Properties (Principles of Design+)
The formal properties (also known as the Principles of Design) describe how the artist organized the sensory properties. This section can be discussed in relation to the sensory properties or on its own. For each section ask yourself how the visuals, editing choices, and the soundtrack come together.
Technical Properties (how it was made)
The technical properties describe how the medium impacts the look, sound, and feel of the artwork. Each medium has its own limitations that impact what is possible for the artist and therefore the artwork. This is the opportunity to describe how these limitations impacted the video you chose.
Expressive Properties (the feelings it inspires)
Expressive properties describe the feeling of the work of art. There are two main categories of exploration in expressive properties: mood and symbolism.
Context (where does this fit into the art historic record)
In this section, take some time to research the context in which the artist is working. Where was it made? What was happening at that time in the world that might have influenced the work? What other works came before it that might have influenced the artist? What other works of art has this artist made?
Ahh. You are done! Remember to stand up straight, speak loudly and look at the audience when you present information.
