a. Why is art universal?
For me, art has no true definition. The act of creating are is simple and unique.
Landscapers, architects, scientists, and teachers, to name a few, are all artist. They take an
idea in their mind and apply it to a “canvas” for others to enjoy. The universal aspect stems
from your culture and your environment being used as influences and inspiration. The fact
that they are different is part of what makes them art.

Art is universal for some people, if a work of art

can evoke someone’s emotional response from them it
is doing the job well. The best art it is makes us happy or
feel enjoyment, it is convenient and inspires us. Some
art, such as illustration, tells a story or shows you
fantastic places or people. Some art has a specific style
that appeals to certain groups of people. And then
you’ve got decades of various attempts to come up with
original movements in art. Art and the value of it is in the
eye of the beholder. Some art we don’t even recognize
as art. Art is everywhere, we look. It’s on the signs we
read, on the clothing we wear, on the packages of
everything we buy, on the building as we drive past, in
the shape and design of the vehicles we drive. From
sculpture, architecture, to photography, and much more.
Art is far richer, and far more powerful then we give
credit for. The more deeply you examine it, the more you
find is still there.

b. Why art is not nature?

Not all art is nature, but nature is an art. There are many ways to approach the
subject of nature in art. Art can open our eyes to the intricacy and beauty of the natural
world. It can simply be a pretty picture that appreciates nature for what it is... or it can be
a challenging piece expressing our complex human connection to nature. Art can serve
a purpose beyond being an object of beauty: it can also address pressing environmental
issues and topics about conservation, sustainability, preservation, biodiversity, and
threatened habitats. Art can interact with and educate the viewer about these issues,
spreading awareness about such important topics. We feel an instinctual need to take
care of the things we feel connected to. Art can help renew, or spark anew, our
connection with nature.

c. Why does art demand involvement?

Art demand involvement because it needs to be appreciated. Art is everywhere
When you look at an art or a masterpiece it reminds you of something and sometimes
bring up old memories or it makes you imagine something and in that way the viewer or
onlooker is already involved in that art.
d. Video Reflection: What artform or artwork has change something in your life?
What is the purpose of art in this society if some people only appreciate and
understand what is being communicated through a work of art. Lourd wasn't trying to
make a point. There is no critique. It's just a bunch of thoughts sewn together just to
intrigue the viewers and ask a question, as with most of his old stuff. This isn't being full
of himself and preachy as much as it is being laidback and restrained. People look at
this from the wrong perspective. Lourd is also an artist, he doesn’t criticize the work of
an artist. His point is that is there an art that can help our society even in a small way.
Music is one of the artworks that has change something in my life it affects my
mood at any time I’m sad and happy it changes also the way I perceive the world.
When it leaves you in the intense silence. Music transcends us to the present,
to the spaces between the noise, it makes the silence utterly encapsulating. It
teaches us to value silence and crave the peace of the present. Music
teaches us to listen without judgement and engage with the silence, not avoid
and fear it. Music shows us that we really do only have one mouth but two
ears, and it opens us up to the beauty of the silence and the skill of listening.
