It has been my general experience that when a professor tells you that they will be grading you on "self-expression", despite their profuse protestations to the contrary, they actually have a narrow and regimented set of expectations that they intend for you to fufill. One of them is that there is no room for not liking the work of art that they have assigned for you to present to the class.
In an attempt to validate (in my own eyes) my "self-expression", I am hereby announcing the second series requiring user interaction on this corner of the interhole: "Thursday Travesty or Triumph".
Every Thursday, I will present you with a piece of art and ask you, the readers of this blog to determine whether it is a Travesty or a Triumph. I know you exist, thanks to StatCounter, so don't come here and fail to comment -- it just takes a second and you can leave a useless email address like firstname.lastname@example.org for all I care. I will tally your opinions and post them later in the week (possibly as late as next Thursday!) Finally, if there is a piece that you would like to see covered, please comment and request it. I will almost certainly do so. However, I suppose I should warn you that I am a burgeoning landscape architect (by burgeoning I mean philosophy grad in his very first quarter of studying landscape), and so I intend to weight the piece selection towards landscape design and urban design, although I also intend to toss in a bit of architecture.Posted by eatingbark at September 22, 2005 8:51 AM
