Critique of Do-Ho Suh


Describe it

-I see a blue house that looks a bit transparent, like its made of plastic or glass

-It looks like there is something in the house, like a chandelier


Relate it

-This work reminds me of one of those small, miniature wood puzzles. The puzzle at the end would lead to a wooden house. This house reminds me of that because the shape is very similar. You would build it hoping for the end result of the same house


Analyse it

-The form/function/construction is a house

-The most interesting part about this work is that there is an object inside another object

-What was the purpose of this artwork? What did you have in mind prior to making the artwork?

Interpret it

-I’m not that great nor creative with titles, but I think I would give it “dfsd sd”

-Considering his quote “no man is an island”, we could say the same that “no house is an island”


Evaluate it

-I think this work is very successful if I had the same goal in mind as his

-I really like the goal he had in mind

-It is not very relevant to my life today

Inspired by object

My object was a pencil case because when I was younger, I loved collecting pencil cases. I was inspired to make my pot feel like my old pencil cases. They had a bunch of pen and ink marks, so I decided to transfer idea to my pot.

To be perfectly honest, I thought I could have included more of a pencil case shape design to this. Besides the glazing designs, there aren’t as many connections to my object as I would have liked.

I am proud of the form overall, I’m glad my pot didn’t start breaking at the end.

WebPubB – Grace Yang – Project One Reflection

I thought the Project One was fun and a good way to assess what we have learned so far. I think a lot of things were delayed and got squished together at the end and many people barely completed the project on time.

So I’m not sure what to reflect on here, the topic is kind of vague. I can reflect on my own project one.

I think my schedule for this was really compact and I had a lot of work to do with this, but I finished everything on time in the end and I think I did well. A lot of times, I was confused on how my links would connected and how. Throughout this project, I learned how to connect things on dreamweaver. I hope my photoshop skills have improved so I can use them for my next projects.

For my next projects, I will use audio that will enhance my project because I think that is what my project 1 lacked. I will try to use more intricate designs because I think my project 1 design looks plain.

Q3 goals presentation rubric



Quarter 4:

Writing: I will write a short story each other week based on/continued from a movie, TV show, or book. I will know when I if I have completed it because I will keep a folder on my desktop. Since there are 9 weeks left in quarter 4, I should have 4-5 documents by the end of quarter 4. This goal is achievable if I put my mind to it, and I know I will because I love reading continuations or made up stories based on published media. 1 story a week is realistic, I just need to take a little time out of my reading, homework, and free time. 

Reading: I will read at least 15 books by the end of quarter 4, all from a wide array of genres.  The evidence will be on my reading log. This goal is achievable because I love reading in general, especially from fantasy and fiction books. I have limited myself less this quarter so I may read more and read with a little more freedom. 15 books in 9 weeks should realistic if I put my mind to it. I will finish this goal by the end of quarter 4.

LA Q4 Goals Rubric

Identity, Stereotypes, Prejudice, and Racism Reflection

How does race shape the way we see ourselves and others?

Race is a very important aspect of our identity. It may define our culture, background, and the way we think. Race may sometimes make us feel different from other racial groups. It may shape the way we see others. Maybe we see them as inferior, but I think mostly we see them as different or the “other”. Certain people may think that their racial group is the best, and all other racial groups are inferior, therefore we should discriminated against then because they are different, thus creating racism. Sometimes, we may think because we do not practise the culture our race practises, we are not that certain race, or if we are in two racial groups, we wonder which racial group we belong in more.


To what extent do our ideas about race influence the choices we make?

Race can also be connected to culture and what practises our race may practise. Just like peer pressure, we can be pressurised about our race. Whatever our race chooses to do, we may decide to follow. You may choose to not to something because prejudice and stereotypes are always being used against your race. I feel like the world can decided how we can change the way we view the world and all the racial groups. It is a matter of willing to accept that everyone’s different.
