LEH 355 "Dada"

1. “I don't want words that other people have invented. All the words are other people's inventions. I want my own stuff, my own rhythm, and vowels and consonants too, matching the rhythm and all my own. If this pulsation is seven yards long, I want words for it that are seven yards long. Mr Schulz's words are only two and a half centimetres long.”

-          The interpretation of this quote in the passage “Dada Manifesto” by Hugo Ball, is that he doesn’t want to believe in anything that other people believe in. He wants to have his own believes of life.

-          The meaning is that he wants to have his owns ideas without having to believe in the same as the normal person and everyone else believes in.

-          I believe that the author states this in his statement because he wants everyone to get accustom to the word Dada, to start implementing the new way of art.  

-          The reason why I chose this quote is because it caught my attention when he stated that he wanted to have his own word, where it would adjust to what he was saying, fitting in with his own rhythm. In contrast with Schulz because his methods are the same to everyone else’s.

-          I would have to say I agree with this quote, mainly because it takes a lot of guts to come out and say that he wanted to try new things. And come out with a new way of creating art.
2. The artist I have chosen to elaborate his work is during the expressionism movement also known as the “Post-Impressionists” his name is Vincent van Gogh, according to Van Gogh was born on March 30, 1853, in a place called Groot-Zundert, Netherlands. Van Gogh was a painter whose work, notable for its beauty, emotion and color, was a highly influenced 20th century art. Through the years of his life He struggled with mental illness, and remained poor and virtually unknown throughout his life. Van Gogh died in France on July 29, 1890, at age 37, from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
'Café Terrace at Night', 1888
- In this picture here Van Gogh has painted a picture of some kind of restaurant in the bright night. It shows tables outside of the place with people outside trying to eat, with a waiter taking orders.
- The colors being used by Van Gogh are yellow, blue, brown, white, blue, green, and purple.
- What the picture is trying illustrate is another beauty made by Van Gogh demonstrating his emotions and love for the night life under the stars. I believe that what he is trying to say is how to enjoy a night out under a lovely night.

"The Starry Night," 1889

-this picture illustrates a variety of things, it looks like a city under the night with a landscape view of the background.
- The colors containing this pictures are yellow, white, green, black, blue, purple and brown.
- The picture to my understanding is trying to illustrate that there is windy and lonely starry night in a town with a landscape view. The reason why I believe is a windy night is because you can see a kind of wave in the skies. And also lonely because it seems to be no one outside, and a lonely bush in front of the town.
"The Starry Night," 1889
- This image looks like is a city and its light resemblance of each home is on the river, with bright stars over the night.
- The colors being used in the picture are Blue, yellow, purple and black.
- My believe the meaning and the actions I can take from this painting is that the night was beautiful and two people are having a meaningful walk around the “starry night” along the river.
