This understanding is based solely onthe facts of this world and not as the ancients held it in ancient philosophy. This new modern science provides ...
  • Edgar Degas Ballet Dancer With Arms Crossed
    639 words
    It is in his concepts of man versus himself, his studying of light, capturing a moment and use of large shapes to flatten space that makes Edgar Degas an impressionist.

    382 words
    Inner Light In order to understand what light is one has to understand how vision works. The process of visual perception is incredibly complex, involving many functions of the brain.

    4,126 words
    Between The Silence and The Light Introduction Architecture is a meeting place between the measurable and the unmeasurable. The art of design is not only rooted in the aesthetic form, but in the soul of the work. In Phenomena and Idea, Stephen Holl once wrote, ' The thinking-making couple of architecture occurs in silence. Afterward, these "thoughts' are communicated in the silence of phenomenal experiences. We hear the "music' of architecture as we move through spaces while arcs of sunlight bea...
