my experience.....

I really don't know how my bloggin experience was, because I think that was good for improve in my writing skills, but at the same time I don't like very much this type if things (the blog thing).
the good part of this was that I could learn something new like use a blog, at first I had some issues because I didn't know exactly how to use this, I even loose one post complete once and I had to write it again (of course rocio laugh of me). so I can say that this activity had moments very fun.

the bad part was that sometimes I didn't like the topics that we had to write about, and sometimes I didn't know what to write about this topics so I took some time, maybe to much, to do this activity, but the important is that I did all the post.

the part related to the class I think that the blog help to get better or at least try to get better in the writing, but I really don't know if I improve much or not, I think that I did, because now I put more atention in the gramar (before I didn't even notice) and also helped me to learn to use the past in a better way, altough I still need to work on it.

even I didn't like this activity specially and didn't like to use this mean to express i think we have to try and look the positive part of this, because we have to do this anyway, so it's better put a happy face jjejee.

I don't know if we are going to have to do this the next semester but if we do at least I already kmow how to write in a blog, so I don't going to have the sames problems that I had this one.... I hope

my future...

In five years from  now I  hope I will be studying cinema and also working in something related with my current career, like doing assistance ship for a teacher in the university.

In the personal life I really don’t know what I’m going to be doing, because that depends on the things that will happen in between. Maybe I’m gonna be living by my own, or at least that is what I`m planning to do.

If for some reason I couldn’t study cinema, I would like to go to live somewhere in Europe, like Spain or France.

Although I really want to do all this stuff, I don’t like very much to think about the future, I prefer to live the present, and enjoy as much as possible the moment.

Maybe….. in five years I’m going  to be married and I’m going to be a mom, or maybe I will be study science or mathemathics….. I really don’t have a clue

about Ken robindson's talk

In the video of the talk "schools kill creativity" by Ken Robins in TED's website, he speaks about how the education system should pay more atention to children's creativity. he think that creativity is as important as literature.
the artistic side it should have more importance beacuse the body is very important and the education system ignore it, or just give them a second place, like an after class actitvity.
Mr Rovinson also gives it importance to the fact of been wrong and don't care about it, quality that childrens have. this it is importante because they have the capacity to imagine and create diferent things in the moment that they are wrong, and they don't worry, just act.
he concludes by saiying about education that it need to evaluate his foundations, with the purpose of make persons more prepare for the future, and also to make them more complete by develop all the capacities they have not just intellectual ones.
I personally think that what this man it's talking about is very importat because many times the schools repress their students and they can not develop all they capacities. this situation, I think, are more usual in countries less develop, because theiy are more focus in the economic growing.

My favorite subject

My favorite subject this semester is the elective about sociology of art.  This subject studies the impact that the society has in the art field, and how the new techniques of production allow expanding this field.

I like it because we can see how the art changes with the period and how the period it’s reflect in the piece of art. This vision allows me to watch the importance that art has in the people’s life.

In class we study meanly the work of Walter Benjamin “The art in the time of technique reproduction”  where the author write about how the possibility of  reproduction of art`s pieces had changing the position of art in the life of  people. The art has to stop being an object of  the religion and it becomes in a mercancy object, because now we have the possibility of buy this works or download from the web.

And also we study the work of Bordieu  who talk about the art field like a independent field of study, that has its own rules and its own specialist.

The best one

Exist so many bright minds related to this area of thinking that it's very dificult to choose just one as my favorite, so I'm going to talk about someone that we are seen in class.... Inmanuel Kant!!! even hi isn't my favorite one I think that his influence in the way to apreciate the art it is trascendental.
the line of thinking inaugurated by kant and others philosophers  mark the begin of the modern time in the philosophy.
it is in he's third critic named "The critique of judgement" where Kant explain and develop his toughts about a concept known as  aesthetic  judgement, which define our way to look the art and the objects in the nature. in this work he stablish the diference between a judgement based on the understanding and other based on the reason. as a result of this Kant define the concepst of agreeable, beautiful, the sublime, and the good.
this definitions are the base from many theories about art, for example in the Romanticism the idea of the sublime was a main topic.
altough Kant wasn't the only one who work in base of this topics it's considered even today as a great exponent of the modern aesthetics, and his thinkings still create debate.
