Day 5 Favorite Article of Clothing

My favorite article of clothing is Hogwarts uniform. It has a history of hundreds of years. Hogwarts is a magic school where Harry Potter learned magic. There are four colors of the uniform. Each of the color represents a different house. Red represents Gryffindor, Green represents Slytherin, yellow represents Hufflepuff, and blue represents ravenclaw. They all made up of five parts, a cloak, a white shirt, a tie, a gray sweater, a skirt or trousers.

5.Interview (I can’t upload this video either, so I also sent it to professor)

Here’s is the text translation form

I only knew that dad has own company, but I never asked him about what exactly does he do. Today I’m going to ask him several questions to get to know his job. I’ll ask him in Chinese, and translate our conversation into English later.

Q1 Which field is your work in, industry, transportation, commerce or construction?

My job is in the construction, but there is also a small part of the trade, but construction is the main part.

So the main part is construction, but also included a little bit of commerce, right?

Yes.

Q2 Do you enjoy your job? Do you think your job as a process of realizing your dream, or just a way for living?

Yes, I do like my job. Because when you really enjoy doing something, you can do it better. But strictly speaking, it is more a way of survival.

Q3 What do you think is the most important thing in managing a company’s employees?

I think rules is the most important thing. There is a famous saying in China that, nothing can be accomplished without rules. Anything else, like feelings and execution only exists under the rules. Rules always stay at the first place.

Q4 If you could start over from 20 years old, which field would you choose? Would you going to choose another field? Because I know that you like art as much as I do.

From the experience of an adult, like me, it’s hard to say. Ideals are important, but so are opportunities. You never know what would happen. The way you live is not necessarily the way you like.

Q5 Do you have problems that you can’t solve when dealing with the company? Do you feel stress out sometimes? You never bring negative feelings home, is this because you have a good ability to regulate your emotions or you just hide them from mom and me, to protect us from being hurts?

To be honest, when I’m dealing with the company, I will encounter problems beyond my ability, because everyone’s ability is limited. And yes, I have pressure sometimes at every stage. But these are all not a big deal, because the world of an adult can’t be perfect all the time.

About the negative emotion, I think I shouldn’t bring it home, because as an adult, especially as a male adult, I should have the ability of regulating my bad feelings. I have to admit that I sometimes hide negative emotions that I can’t adjust to in a short time.

 Okay, that’s all for today. Thank you for your cooperation.

Thank you for your listening.

 

6.A letter to future self

Hi,

I’m you from the past. I have some goals, and I hope you already made them come true. As you know, I always want to be a photographer,have my own studio,a home with white furniture. Also I want to have a huge dog. If you already have one, please take good care of him, or her.

I want to learn more about photography, painting, and playing basketball as always, so please keep working hard to do those as good as you can.

One thing that you should never forget is, keeping touch with your best friend, she’s so important for me. The happiness in my life now is largely due to her, so don’t ever lose her and always be grateful of having her. Also, please take care of mom and dad for me. Dad accompanied me all the time and he’s always trying his best to protect me from being hurt. They’re getting old and I’m growing up. It’s your turn to protect them. Do not let anyone hurts them.

For the environment or the change of things, to hold yourself, even if everything around you become strange, at least let yourself as the original.

Payne’s Gray

Payne’s Gray is a composite pigment made up of blue, red, black and white permanent colors. It is most common in watercolors. It also could be found in oil paints, but not in acrylic and gouache.

 

Artist Research —— Gustav Klimt

Gustav Klimt is an artist, who likes to use golden color in his painting. The most art pieces of Gustav Klimt are about woman. The flowing curves and the golden color, which actually is gold foil and platinum, make the paintings full of life, noble and gorgeous.

I really like his works, because they all have his own style. After getting to know him, I think I can recognize his work at any time I see it. Also the women in his paintings are very feminine, and their expressions are very attractive. Gustav Klimt gave me the feeling that he understood the psychology of women very well.

Week 1

  1. Reflection paragraph of Louise Despont

Louise Despont is an artist who likes to use architectural stencils to create drawings. These materials are easy to get, so she doesn’t need to wait for opportunities or pay lots of money to buy them. For me, I don’t really care about if the materials are easy to get. As long as I know I can get it, I don’t mind to put many efforts to get it, because I’m doing something that I really interested in.

Her studio and home are at the same place, which can make her start to access to work right after waking up. It’s a very smooth transition. I always imagine about what will be my future look like. It’s basically same with Louise Despont’s lifestyle, make the studio and home at the same place, so I could access to my work whenever I want.

Louise Despont thinks that the way she creating artworks are more private and personal that painting. When she working in notebooks, she can make mistakes, because people don’t need to see it. There’s more freedom. Sometimes I don’t want people to see my works either, because it’s an express of my own world. I’d like to make some of works only belongs to myself without showing to others.

She believes each work is a discovery. She removes the drawing from the total control, only be responsible for her won parts and let something else responsible for other parts, which is very exciting. I always like to make everything under control, but her experiences make me want to try to be more relaxed someday.
