Visual Disability - 2,785 words
The greatest expression of the ultimate timeless civilisation of mankind, is the embodiment of unfeigned, absolute, active altruistic reverence for the universal equality, dignity and sanctity of humanity; the inability to perceive the declivity from behind an acclivity, or rather, the proclivity to infer the depth of a river from its breath is, no less, the antithesis, for verisimilitude isnt proof, but verisimilitude. To be or not to be then, being is but a metaphysical idiom with a being, whose interpretation bears no physical traits that bears not a being, much the same as the paradoxical question of visual disability: a metaphysical idiom with a physical configuration that is, however, ...

Visual Appeal Of The Chevrolet Malibu - 379 words
Arguments surround us everyday. Whether we are having a conversation, walking down the street, or simply reading a magazine, arguments are being made. There are two common types of arguments, verbal and visual. A print ad out of Prevention magazine advertising Chevrolet Malibu cars makes a strong argument using one of the four lines of argument; emotion. The first thing this Chevy car ad does to effectively grab emotions is picture a mother sitting next to her newborn child. In a silent desert setting, there is a comforting picture of a mother with her had gently touching her newborns head and in the back ground, a Chevy Malibu car. The look of satisfaction and trust is what is portrayed in ...

Visual Analysis Of Funeral Stela Of Menthuhotpe From The Cemetery At Abydos - 1,013 words
Several weeks ago I visited the Museum of Man- specifically the exhibit of Egyptian artifacts. I observed the Funerary Stela of Menthuhotpe. This piece is obviously from the early Egyptians, probably during the Old Kingdom Dynasty, which spanned several thousand years around 2000 B.C.. The pieces resemblance to the reliefs during this time period is striking (one example of similar work is the relief in Tis mastaba which shows him watching a hippo hunt created between 2450 and 2350 B.C.). This is an example of a stela or stele. A stela is a carved or inscribed stone slab or pillar. This piece could be a stele carved in sandstone, or perhaps, painted limestone. Paint used in this Although the ...

How Have Adaptation Experiments Contributed To The Understanding Of Visual Perception? - 1,285 words
Perception involves the input of basic information from a retinal image. Retinal images can be ambiguous in terms of size and orientation of lines, blood vessels infront of the retina, eye tremors and the blind spot can affect perceptual responses. One retinal pattern can lead to different interpretations and distorted images from inadequate sensory data, but perception of something as a recognisable object remains stable despite variations in the retinal image, such as light, or position of the object. Perception is a process of construction, a stable, veridical or true representation of the world which needs to be constructed. The retinal image can be ambiguous due to different sizes, slan ...

Macular Degeneration - 1,043 words
Macular Degeneration is a problem in the part of the eye that controls your sharpest central vision. It is a group of diseases that result in a loss of detailed vision. The brain will not just leave the spot empty, so it learns to fill it in with spotty macular cell damage. People most of the time don't tell their doctors (opthalmologists) about it until it is well in advance. There are two types of Macular Degeneration. Juvenile Macular Degeneration affects the central vision in young children. This takes place in the macula, or the central region of the retina. The retina is where we are able to read and to distinguish colors. The main symptoms of Juvenile Macular Degeneration is a reducti ...

When we discuss our brain, we usually focus on the brains ability to think. That task alone is extremely complex and involved, but the brain also has many other tasks. Most of the time the brain is on autopilot, meaning that most of the activities preformed are just automatic. Our five senses; sight, sound, touch, taste, and smell, are automatically preformed in our brains. We don't have to think about how something sounds, we just hear it and we then interpret that sound. The largest area of our brain is the area that is set aside for vision, it is located in the occipital lobe. Dr. Gerard Guarniero has been blind since birth, a defect in which he has never been able to fix. Recently, he ha ...

Cell assemblers are basically many cells that are put together to preform a unified task, such as remembering. When cell assembly is developed, you can perceive an event, and you can also be able to perceive that really aren't there; such as when someone hallucinates something. When a child is growing up and maturing, the first three years or so are extremely important. The important thing to realize that speaking isn't the most important thing, the more important thing is to hear words that are spoken to you. Dr. Jean-Pierre Changeux participated in ...

The ability of humans to learn and retain knowledge is an incredible power source and also a dominant characteristic of the human species. The intricate abilities of the mind allow for humans to learn skills and to have the power to control and dominate the world they live in by means of learned behavior.

In writing The Social Brain Michael Gazzaniga proclaims an understanding of the principle of both the right and left brain hemispheres by examining split brain patients.

The events which conspired during WWI and the years that followed boosted Picasso's Popularity while diminished Braque's.(Frank,18) At this point in history, 1914, Braque left the art scene to fight in the war. He entered the army as an infantry sergeant and served with distinction, being decorated twice in 1914 for bravery. In 1915 he suffered a serious head wound, which was followed by a trepanation, several months in the hospital, and a long period of convalescence at home at Sorgues. During this period he added to the aphorisms he had been in the habit of scribbling on the margins of drawings, and in 1917 a collection of these sayings, put together by his friend the poet ...

Manets A Bar At The Folies Bergere - 1,248 words
Manet's painting, A Bar at the Folies-Bergre, was an integral factor in the rise of a new era in art; through the emergence of a contemporary Parisian city, Modern art began to flourish during the late 1800's. Being a painting of extreme complexity and ambiguity, many art critics have commented on the formal aspects of the painting, as well as the social reactions to this specific, and novel form of art. The purpose and meaning of the mirror behind the lady and the disparity of reality versus reflections, pose immense controversy and are discussed in Robert Herbert's essay, Impressionism: Art, Leisure, & Parisian Society, Bradford R.

Mc Escher - 1,051 words
Though M.C. Escher contended that he knew virtually nothing about mathematics, even having gone as far as to declare that he was absolutely innocent of training or knowledge in the exact sciences, (Schattschneider 67), his art work commonly incorporates the use of many recognized elements of science and mathematics. It has been argued that Eschers natural accessibility and his popularity with young art patrons is due to the Eschers use of symmetry, his use of metamorphosis, and his focus on representational elements of science in his work (Donato 31). Though Escher appeared unwilling to address it during his lifetime, it was evident that his work was supported by elements of science, includi ...

Escher demonstrated and understanding of differential special perceptions that were designed by considering the spatial circumstances within which elements of nature come into correlation and underscoring an artistic depiction based on these elements (Doornek 25). Two of Eschers more popular works, Day and Night and Three Spheres II are both artistic creations the underscore this defining focus on form over substance (Doornek 25). They also demonstrate the process by which Escher extends mathematics and scientific concepts into his artistry, and underscore the emergence as a reflection of his understanding of nature and of other cultures.

Light Matter - 362 words
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. In Arthur Zajonc's book "Catching the Light," he writes, "vision requires far more than a functioning physical organ. Without an inner light, without a formative visual imagination, we are blind." The function of registering visual information, seeing, requires learning to see, in other words, in order to see the light one must posses inner light. The process of visual perception is connected to all the other senses, functions of the body as well as mind. People learn to see by experience. For example: one acquires the kno ...
