Selected Course Readings
Welcome! This guide hosts the reading for your assignment due next class for Bare Bones, AR 102 and Figure Drawing, DE 220:
The 18th-century French philosopher Diderot wrote that sight is the most superficial of all the senses; hearing, the most arrogant; smell the most voluptuous; the sense of taste the most fickle and superstitious; and the sense of touch the most profound and philosophical.
On two or three (double-spaced) typewritten pages, please relate "To See and Not See" (Virgil's story) either to the above quotation from Diderot and/or to something from your own history. Can you think of something from your own experience as an aspiring artist, a person in a new city, in an unusual situation? Please use specific examples from the story AND from your own experience.
Please do not email this to me. Hand it in at the beginning of next week's class.
