Oddity - The Movement and Artists Who Defied Logic Oddity makes no sense. Dreams and the functions of the psyche mind rouse workmanship loaded up with odd pictures and odd juxtapositions. Innovative scholars have consistently played with the real world, however in the mid twentieth century Surrealism developed as an insightful and social development. Filled by the lessons of Freud and the insubordinate work of Dada craftsmen and artists, surrealists like Salvador DalÃ£ , RenÃ£ © Magritte, and Max Ernst advanced free affiliation and dream symbolism. Visual craftsmen, artists, writers, authors, and movie producers searched for approaches to free the mind and tap concealed stores of innovativeness.

Italian Renaissance painter Giuseppe ArcimboldoÃ¢ (1527Ã¢â¬1593) utilized trompe lÃ¢â¬â¢oeil impacts Ã to delineate human faces made of natural product, blossoms, creepy crawlies, or fish. The Netherlandish craftsman Hieronymus BoschÃ¢ (c. 1450-1516) transformed farm animals and family questions into alarming beasts. <img information srcset=https://www.thoughtco.com/thmb/4pMmrZB6esdZK1u67jrbXGJnaAI=/300x0/filters:no_upscale():max_bytes(150000):strip_icc()/Bosch-Dali-GettyImages-5a875feec0647100376476f7.jpg 300w, https://www.thoughtco.com/thmb/dN5_RdNunopWi-s-u9i4dNIjLvs=/828x0/filters:no_upscale():max_bytes(150000):strip_icc()/Bosch-Dali-GettyImages-5a875feec0647100376476f7.jpg 828w, https://www.thoughtco.com/thmb/dIy6vEnOTWWoZZlcyGn9MzGggWs=/1356x0/filters:no_upscale():max_bytes(150000):strip_icc()/Bosch-Dali-GettyImages-5a875feec0647100376476f7.jpg 1356w, https://www.thoughtco.com/thmb/2xDf3RpsXI14JrmhGDF96AO4dV0=/2413x0/filters:no_upscale():max_bytes(150000):strip_icc()/Bosch-Dali-GettyImages-5a875feec0647100376476f7.jpg 2413w information src=https://www.thoughtco.com/thmb/UhDNOuxw7gwp8otUrSOdPCxFYRk=/2413x1500/filters:no_upscale():max_bytes(150000):strip_icc()/Bosch-Dali-GettyImages-5a875feec0647100376476f7.jpg src=//:0 alt=Surrealistic rock arrangements painted by Bosch and Salvador Dali class=lazyload information click-tracked=true information img-lightbox=true information expand=300 id=mntl-sc-square image_1-0-8 information following container=true /> Did Salvador DalÃ£ model his bizarre stone after a picture by Hieronymus Bosch? Left: Detail from The Garden of Earthly Delights, 1503-1504, by Hieronymus Bosch. Right: Detail from The Great Masturbator, 1929, by Salvador DalÃ£ . Credit: Leemage/Corbis and Bertrand Rindoff Petroff by means of Getty Images Twentieth-century surrealists adulated The Garden of Earthly Delights and considered Bosch their ancestor. Surrealist craftsman Salvador DalÃ£ may have imitated Bosch when he painted the odd, face-molded stone development in his amazingly sexual magnum opus, The Great Masturbator. Notwithstanding, the dreadful pictures Bosch painted are not surrealist in the advanced sense. ItÃ¢â¬â¢s likely that Bosch intended to show Biblical exercises as opposed to investigate dim corners of his mind. So also, Giuseppe ArcimboldoÃ¢â¬â¢s superbly intricate and amazing representations were visual riddles intended to entertain as opposed to test the oblivious. In spite of the fact that they look dreamlike, canvases by early craftsmen reflected intentional idea and shows of their time. Conversely, twentieth century surrealists defied show, moral codes, and the restraints of the cognizant mind.The development rose up out of Dada, a cutting edge way to deal with craftsmanship that derided the foundation. Marxist thoughts started a hatred for Capitalist society and a hunger for social defiance. The works of Sigmund Freud proposed that higher types of truth may be found in the psyche. Also, the mayhem and catastrophe of World War I prodded a craving to part from custom and investigate new types of expression.Ã¢ In 1917, French author and pundit Guillaume Apollinaire utilized the term Ã¢â¬Å"surrÃ£ ©alismeÃ¢â¬ to portray Parade, a vanguard expressive dance with music by Erik Satie, outfits and sets by Pablo Picasso, and story and movement by other driving craftsmen. Adversary groups of youthful Parisians grasped surrÃ£ ©alisme and fervently discussed the significance of the term. The development authoritatively propelled in 1924 when artist AndrÃ£ © Breton distributed the First Manifesto of Surrealism. Instruments and Techniques of Surrealist Artists Early supporters of the Surrealism development were progressives who looked to release human inventiveness. Breton opened a Bureau for Surrealist Research where individuals led meets and collected a document of sociological investigations and dream pictures. Somewhere in the range of 1924 and 1929 they distributed twelve issues of La RÃ£ ©volutionsur rÃ£ ©aliste, a diary of aggressor treatises, self destruction and wrongdoing reports, and investigations into the imaginative procedure. From the outset, Surrealism was generally a scholarly development. Louis Aragon (1897Ã¢â¬1982), Paul Ãâ°luard (1895Ã¢â¬1952), and different artists tried different things with programmed composing, or automatism, to free their minds. Surrealist journalists additionally discovered motivation in cut-up, montage, and different kinds of discovered verse. Visual specialists in the Surrealism development depended on drawing games and an assortment of trial strategies to randomize the imaginative procedure. For instance, in a technique known as decalcomania, specialists sprinkled paint on to paper, at that point scoured the surface to make designs. Thus, bulletismÃ¢ involved shooting ink onto a surface, and Ã ©claboussure included splashing fluid onto a painted surface that was then wiped. Odd and regularly diverting arrays of discovered items turned into a well known approach to make juxtapositions that tested previously established inclinations. A passionate Marxist, AndrÃ£ © Breton accepted that craftsmanship springs from an aggregate soul. Surrealist specialists frequently chipped away at ventures together.The October 1927 issue of La RÃ£ ©volution surrÃ£ ©aliste highlighted works created from a community movement called Cadavre Exquis, or Exquisite Corpse. Members alternated composing or drawing on a piece of paper. Since nobody comprehended what previously existed on the page, the ultimate result was an astonishing andÃ¢ absurd composite. Surrealist Art Styles Visual specialists in the Surrealism development were a various gathering. Early works by European surrealists frequently followed the Dada custom of transforming natural articles into ironical and strange craftsmanships. As the Surrealism development advanced, craftsmen grew new frameworks and methods for investigating the unreasonable universe of the inner mind. Two patterns emerged:Ã Biomorphic (or, abstract)Ã¢ and Figurative. <img information srcset=https://www.thoughtco.com/thmb/_Z4F24oNIHHscN2vh1Qg0nrsx4A=/300x0/filters:no_upscale():max_bytes(150000):strip_icc()/GiorgiodeChirico-Getty153048548-5a876413ae9ab80037fd9879.jpg 300w, https://www.thoughtco.com/thmb/TDbteY5B30Sj6Q3IANVt1uxtEJU=/1501x0/filters:no_upscale():max_bytes(150000):strip_icc()/GiorgiodeChirico-Getty153048548-5a876413ae9ab80037fd9879.jpg 1501w, https://www.thoughtco.com/thmb/ySw520hZC142GB1nyjf6C66U0b0=/2702x0/filters:no_upscale():max_bytes(150000):strip_icc()/GiorgiodeChirico-Getty153048548-5a876413ae9ab80037fd9879.jpg 2702w, https://www.thoughtco.com/thmb/vGbzj_wHbDqb14w4LiNgKTIJLqQ=/5106x0/filters:no_upscale():max_bytes(150000):strip_icc()/GiorgiodeChirico-Getty153048548-5a876413ae9ab80037fd9879.jpg 5106w information src=https://www.thoughtco.com/thmb/73UguEX-tRwLa0M4FcuhoEmqzSM=/5106x3552/filters:no_upscale():max_bytes(150000):strip_icc()/GiorgiodeChirico-Getty153048548-5a876413ae9ab80037fd9879.jpg src=//:0 alt=Surrealistic town square around evening time with void curves, inaccessible train. class=lazyload information click-tracked=true information img-lightbox=true information expand=300 id=mntl-sc-square image_1-0-29 information following container=true /> Giorgio de Chirico. From the Metaphysical Town Square Series, ca. 1912. Oil on canvas. Dea/M. Carrieri by means of Getty Images Metaphorical surrealists delivered unmistakable illustrative workmanship. Huge numbers of the allegorical surrealists were significantly affected by Giorgio de Chirico (1888-1978), an Italian painter who established theÃ Metafisica, or Metaphysical, development. They applauded the fanciful nature of de Chiricos abandoned town squares with columns of curves, far off trains, and spooky figures. Like de Chirico, allegorical surrealists utilized methods of authenticity to render surprising, illusory scenes. Biomorphic (unique) surrealists needed to break altogether liberated from show. They investigated new media and made conceptual works made out of unclear, frequently unrecognizable, shapes and images. Oddity displays held in Europe during the 1920s and mid 1930s highlighted both metaphorical and biomorphic styles, just as works that may be delegated Dadaist. Incredible Surrealist Artists in Europe Jean Arp:Ã Born in Strassburg, Jean Arp (1886-1966) was a Dada pioneer who composed verse and tried different things with an assortment of visual mediums, for example, torn paper and wooden alleviation developments. His enthusiasm for natural structures and unconstrained articulation lined up with surrealist theory. Arp displayed with Surrealist craftsmen in Paris and turned out to be most popular for liquid, biomorphic models, for example, TÃ£ ªte et coquille (Head and Shell). During the 1930s, Arp changed to a non-prescriptive style he called Abstraction-CrÃ£ ©ation. Salvador DalÃ :Ã Spanish Catalan craftsman Salvador DalÃ£ (1904-1989)

Transporting In Around MIT PRIVATE TRANSPORTATION This includes but is not limited to cars, bicycles, skateboards, scooters, and walking. My favorite method, and perhaps the only method I am fully capable of doing after years of training in New York City, is walking. I daresay most people walk. For example, freshman Me walking across the Harvard Bridge in the dead of winter. More students who want quicker transportation use bicycles. MIT has plenty of bike racks around campus near classes and dorms. There is even an auction near the beginning of the year, so its perfectly feasible to get an inexpensive bike here. It also makes it easier to get to really nice places over the weekend, like Walden Pond or Cape Cod. My friend Anthony 10 found that he missed driving terribly. So, not too long ago he bought a used car. Keeping a car around campus is not free of course, but there are a few parking lots around. I hear that driving in the city is no easy feat either PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION You may have heard that Boston has a subway system. The Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority (MBTA) runs this subway system, which for some reason is called the T. MIT has its own station on the Red Line at Kendall Square/MIT. The routes the T covers look something like this: In addition to subways (which cost $1.70 to $2.00 a ride), the MBTA also runs buses (these cost $1.25 to $1.50 a ride) and commuter rail trains (costs vary depending on distance). The map for the commuter rail, which covers a fair portion of the state, is here: How often do people at MIT take these things? Well, some of you might remember that Snively used the commuter rail every morning and evening last summer to get to and from his job in Providence. Ive used it to go to Worcester to see a Nightwish concert. Taking the T is essential for getting into Boston and then the buses can be used to go places the subways dont quite reach. The only inconvenience is that here in Boston, like most places, public transportation stops running. Between around 12:30am and 5:30am, the MBTA will not help you get anywhere. Some of MITs shuttles help make up for this. MIT TRANSPORTATION The MIT Department of Facilities Parking Transportation Office runs and coordinates several shuttles available to the MIT community. These include the following: Saferide. This is possibly the highest-volume shuttle at MIT. There are 4 different appropriately-named shuttles: Boston East, Boston West, Cambridge East, Cambridge West. Together, the four shuttles can reach most if not all of the dorms and FSILGs. Saferide is free and operates seven days a week from 6pm to 2:30am or 3:30am all year. Some reasons to use the Saferide include: Returning home safely after the T has stopped running. Getting to that fraternity or sorority party. Visiting your friends in faraway living groups. Visiting your friends in places near those faraway living groups (heh, BU). Quickly getting across the Charles River when its cold. Or rainy. Or both. Tech Shuttle. This operates every 20 minutes Monday through Friday, from 7:15am to 7:15pm during the entire calendar year (except holidays). Its free, and gets you all around MIT perfect for getting to classes quickly when you live in the farthest dorm and its raining outside. Northwest Shuttle. This free shuttle operates every 10 minutes weekdays from 7:25am to 6:42pm during the entire calendar year (except holidays). Its very similar to the Tech Shuttle. The map for the Tech Shuttle (in gold) and Northwest Shuttle (in black) is shown below. Daytime Boston Shuttle. This shuttle runs every 20 minutes from 8am to 6pm weekdays during the school year (September through May). It is also free, and takes people directly between MITs student center and a few of MITs Greek houses in Boston (which also are just a short hop away from all that the City of Boston has to offer). This short route is shown below. Airport Shuttle. Intuitively, these get people to and from Logan International Airport over several days right before Thanksgiving, Winter, or Spring vacations. Seats should be reserved beforehand, and costs $10.00. Perhaps good if you dont want to take (two or fewer) huge bulky suitcases around the T. Additional shuttles run by other parts of MIT or by companies in Cambridge/Boston include the Bates Shuttle, the Grocery Shuttle (Saturday mornings between Eastgate, a graduate dorm, and Star Market, a supermarket), the Lincoln Lab Shuttle, the Wellesley College Shuttle, the EZ Ride (goes to North Station, free with MIT ID), and the M2 Shuttle (goes around Cambridge, tickets for sale at the Parking and Transportation Office). This last photo is part of the Kendall/MIT Station. (Its so clean compared to NYC stations heheh). Travel safely!

Minority-Serving Institutions (MSIs) serves to provide a college education for citizens across racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic differences that were excluded from higher education throughout the United States History. Minority-Serving Institutions work towards producing superior results with fewer resources while being evaluated using the same accreditation standards as prestigious majority public and private institutions (Fester, 2012, p. 816). Minority-Serving Institutions are represented by Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), Tribal Colleges and Universities (TCUs), Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs), and Asian American, Native American, Pacific Islander Serving Institutions (AANAPISIs), and Minority ServicesÃ¢â¬ ¦show more contentÃ¢â¬ ¦Laws and informal practices were exercised in the 1800s forbidding African-Americans to have the access to reading and writing (Williams, 2007). HBCUs granted the admission of African-American and postsecondary certification when other institutions excluded their participation (Palmer, 2010, p.767). With 107 HBCUs over 228,000 enrolled (U.S. Department of Education, 1991). African-Americans have increased attending colleges by the 1940s while being funded by the U.S Department of Education however limited monies supporting HBCUs casted attention away from HBCUs. In response Fredrick D. Patterson, then president of Tuskegee Institute, suggested private funding efforts. As a result, in 1944 presidents of 29 private HBCUs created the United Negro College Fund (UNCF). The UNCF served solely as a fund raising organization but evidently turned its attention on advocacy and educational roles for African-American students (Gasman, 2007). The Higher Education Act of 1965 amended in Title III authorized funds for enhancing HBCUs by strengthening their College and Universities Program and the Graduate Institutions (U.S. Department of Education, 1991). AANAPISIs are excluded from broader discourses on equity and s ocial justice thus limiting their system-wide policy considerations at state and national levels (Teranishi, 2010). AANAPSIs are academically successful however the low rates of college participation and degree

Indigenous religions, full of vibrancy and color, are often misconstrued or written off as primitive. Examples include: Animism, a belief system that stretches back to the earliest human and is still in practice today. It is thought to be a dangerous, shamanistic religious practice that is looked upon negatively. Buddhism, a religion that people believe is practiced only by environmentalists and the Ã¢â¬Å"hippiesÃ¢â¬ of the world. The reality is it is practiced by the majority of East Asia. It has a powerful spiritual leader that has done a lot to bring awareness about the suffering of his country. And Vodou, which is misinterpreted to be a dangerous, violent religion where people participate in sacrificial rituals and wild sexual orgies. It isÃ¢â¬ ¦show more contentÃ¢â¬ ¦Animism shows up in many different religions. In Buddhism all things have a soul, and because of that, all things are linked. There is also a rich afterlife concept, including karma and rebirth. In Hinduis m, god spirits inhabit animals, and there are evil and good spirits. In Christianity, evil spirits, such as the devil and demons, can possess humans; there is again the concept of an afterlife, dividing evil and good spirits in heaven and hell. Shamans were spirit healers in early tribal communities. They believed that the spirit was housed within the body. They healed the people of the tribes by using deep mental states of trance. Early tribes had shamans that would make concoctions out of hallucinogenic plants to send the sick or dying into another reality. They would dance and play music and chant while applying the concoctions in an attempt to heal the spirit. Animism is a powerful belief that everything has a soul. It is ancient, and because of this it has more primitive elements such as respect for all living things. Like animism, the indigenous beliefs of Buddhism are the foundation of many contemporary religions. Buddhism could be considered the next evolution of the belief of animism because Buddhism shares the belief that everything has a soul. Buddhism is also based on respecting all living things.

TAJH RAY Art 150-501 Fall 2016 Research Paper Prof. D Gaffney mars and venus: comparing the chacmool with the woman of willendorf Modern figurines of art stem directly from the hands of the ancientÃ¢â¬â¢s. The organic forms of modernly sculpted artifacts can most likely be directly referenced to the movements of prehistoric artworks. There seems to be an ongoing transition on how cultures no matter how stretched apart through time, contrasted by ethnicity or religious views; can all be somewhat related to each other by the methods or principles portrayed through their artworks. In fact, I saw that very transition; within two works in which are extremely different in meaning, craftsmanship, time, culture and so on. However, I was still able to find similarities within the artifacts. In this paper I will examine Venus of Willendorf, a Paleolithic carving in limestone; which can fit in the palm of oneÃ¢â¬â¢s hand. As well as, The Sacrifice of Chacmool, which are a plethora of Mesoamerican statues emulating rituals of sacrifice. The Chacmool fi gures are always portrayed with their heads looking at their sides and their backs to the ground, upon their stomachs are bowls in which people would place offerings to the gods. The ChacmoolÃ¢â¬â¢s primary function was to hold offerings for rituals; the offerings would range from common foods to human organs.
