A Favourite Work in Virtual Arts Description Discussion

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR DISCUSSIONS: Your contributions should be thoughtful and developed. Answer all parts of the question and use concepts from the course materials. Use a professional style of communication, with attention to grammar, spelling, and typos; cite your sources.

Unless your instructor specifies otherwise, choose ONE of the following questions, and give a substantive response to at least two other students.


  1. Describe a favorite work of visual art and include a picture of it in your post. Your selection may come from the entire range of visual arts, anything from a famous painting in a museum to an iconic architectural masterpiece to a handmade basket or an especially well-designed object. The only restriction is that you need to have seen the actual work of art, rather than a photo or online image.
  2. Describe the medium it represents within the scope of visual arts. Tell us about its maker or designer. What year is it from? Where is it located? What was its intended function? What is its significance to you?
  3. Does this particular piece help you understand something about reality or is it intended to be more of an illusion pointing to something we don’t really quite understand, like a shadow on the wall of the cave as in the Allegory of the Cave we looked at last week?
  4. Use at least two of the vocabulary, concepts or techniques from the Learning Resources for the module to say something more about this piece of art. Underline or bold the vocabulary, concept or technique you use as a interpretative tool in your post.
