can you please help me with these discussions.
Each one is about 300 words.. I want you to see the instruction for each and the sample answer..
You can paraphrase the sample answers in a way that is completely different from the original discussions.. make sure you use completely different words, style, and if you can change or derive another ideas it will be perfect..
I am looking to work with you in my future assignment if you can get me a good grade in this..
Instructions:(This discussion is a bonus post that can either make up for a missed post or, should you receive full credit on your other ten posts, serve as extra credit. It is due on Friday, 4/20 and should be the usual 250-word-ish length.
During our installation unit, a recommended work was Sky (Tampa), an LED screen installation designed by Leo Villareal on the facade of the Tampa Art Museum. The work lights up at dusk and changes intermittently during the night. To receive credit for this discussion, submit documentation of your visit (a selfie or image snapped on site) and describe the effect of the large-scale installation, including discussion of how the installation sits within the larger site (Curtis Hixon park, downtown Tampa, etc.) of which it is a part.)
The outside of the Tampa Museum of Art has automatic LED lights which are responsible for its current attractiveness. During the day, the façade of the museum generates a pattern that resembles a moiré, and at night, the LED lights tend to glow to display the signature of Villarreal. The installation of these lights has also been done at a large scale in various regions of the world. People prefer the LED lights due to the kind of advantages they provide. Therefore, the effects of installing these lights on a large scale comprise of saving the businesses considerable costs it is cheaper to maintain them compared to the other kinds of lights. The large-scale installation also ensures that customers are attracted to the museum which then increases the revenue of businesses. The LED lights are also known for saving energy especially when they are installed at a large scale. They are also responsible for beautifying the area where they are installed since they are arranged in attractive patterns that glow at night. also cities tend to use these lights to achieving attractiveness hence making the skies brighter. Since the LED lights are increasingly being adopted in various regions of the world.

This weekend (April 6-7), my colleague Scott Ferguson is holding a conference called “Money on the Left: Word, Image, Praxis.” Ferguson’s a theorist of an esoteric branch of economic theory called Modern Monetary Theory. Although many of the papers deal with economics, some are on the aesthetics and artistic representations of money and alternate ways of thinking about what money is and what it does (or could do) in our society. I don’t expect you to follow the talks entirely (I’m expecting to be lost continually since these are experts in fields I’m not familiar with), but what I’d like you to do is to attend a panel, take some notes, and then write up your tentative idea about what the talks are saying about their topics.
For those interested in the topic, panel sessions will be held Friday and Saturday (including on Saturday a live video conference with Joseph Gordon-Levitt). Here’s the schedule (http://modern-money-humanities.webflow.io/schedule)
In general, the conversation is about art. Harriet, a performance artist and theatre director, indicates that technology has changed the way art is viewed and consumed by society. Artificial intelligence is indeed changing the way things work in society but has a blind spot in that it does not have consciousness, a gap Harriet believes can be filled by art. Art and art making is described as a form of consciousness that is meant to fascinate and thrill, and not simply to entertain. When it comes to the influence of art on culture, Harriet believes that culture shift should occur. Policy should be changed so as to encourage art and art making similarly as sports since art contributes to the way culture is viewed, valued and depiction of its role in human civilization.
In the conversation, Marina Abramovic, a successful artist, is used as an example to show how capitalistic society or money systems are influencing art. According to Harriet, much of Marina’s success can be attributed to her marketing skills to ensure her work is shown in many galleries. Harriet indicates that a famous artist can be used in a role simply because they will attract audiences even though there are not best suited for the role. Harriet thus believes that art should do more to develop a better audience culture in which the audience feel they have agency or a participatory role in the art. There should be more levels of engagement with the audience and the government should develop policy that focus on enriching people’s experiences as audiences. Policies may include educational polies, policies on public places and policies on artist salaries.

This weekend (April 13-14), the Philosophy Graduate Student Organization is holding a conference called “Resistance and Love after Foundationalism” on campus. While high-level philosophy is difficult to follow for initiates, I think hearing a high-level discussion can be helpful just to know what that looks and sounds like.
At any rate, to earn credit for this post, attend one of the talks and give me a summary here of what (you think) the speaker was talking about/arguing.
The article discusses the nature of political life and how individuals accept or fail to accept the status quo in their current political life. The author argues that the process of transcendence from accepting to not accepting the status quo is not always guaranteed but emanates from within the individual. The individual’s ability to transcendence is unknown until the individual decides to actively take up the path to push for change
The author presents Fanon’s thoughts on his experience in a colonial world. Fanon observes that colonialist tend to govern inhabitants in the same manner governed to them in their own world. Fanon indicates that the colonialists are ill advised in attempting to govern inhabitants similarly as in their own world since it does not accommodate the uniqueness of the new world and thus limits inhabitants from flourishing as they should. The incompatibility in the two worlds is described by showing that individuals in the colonial world feel free do as they will while individuals in the colonized world do not reach their potential since they feel that what they are doing is compelled by an external agent. Fanon thus calls for a revolutionary violence for a “new humanity” that encompasses the needs and aspiration of all classes of people equally.
The author also presents Badiou’s eventual ontology in which revolution towards a new humanity is brought about by a certain event or situation. The event brings about a universal truth that goes beyond any previous realities even though some may deny its existence. Once the truth becomes clear, individuals take up a new way of doing things and react to situations as if the required change has already occurred. In a political setting, the state or the political status quo is presented as effectively hiding the infinite possibilities that render subjects unable to think beyond the present reality. However, once the event occurs, subjects hope and believe in a new reality of infinite possibilities.
The author concludes that status quo is arbitrary and that all individuals do participate in the new humanist violence against the status quo.
