Tour of the Harn By: Jon Falasca

When I first walked up to this piece what stood out to me the most was the way it was presented. I loved the way this exhibit was set up because it allows you to put yourself inside of the art. It even allowed me to feel the emotions of everyone in the video as if I were really there. This piece also showed me that there are a variety of ways to present art and with every different way shows the viewer a unique way to see the piece.

In this piece the artist conveys how the people made coffee and to me this represents the good life for a few different reasons. First it shows how the people in this photos are all hardworking and motivated. And even though that the labor that these people performed was difficult and even caused hardship among most of the people in this industry they were still able to find ways to enjoy themselves and have a good time with each other. And to me that's what the good life is about finding a way to balance work and family. Through the way these photos display the life of these hardworking people it stood out to me as how i view the good life and allowed me to appreciate the art even more and allowed me to understand more about what i consider to have a good life.

This sculpture was made by Wada Akira and It's called the "Infinite Pillars". To me this piece spoke to my core values because when I saw it it made me think about how not everything lasts forever but how I'm remembered will outlive me. That's why when i saw this piece it made me think about what I hold to be important and how will/what will I be remembered for. Also the fact that this piece was made in memory of two people reminds me of how no matter what happens i want to be able to hold on to those closet to me and while this may involve changing my morals a little bit it will all be worth it so that I can achieve the Good life.

When I walked into this exhibit what first caught my attention was how the art was displayed. The way that each piece was set against a white background and organized in a neat and pattern like order really exemplified that each of these pieces was of the modern era. Another thing I noticed was that this exhibit was put towards the end of the museum so that it felt as though you were going through all these different eras of art until finally came into the modern era, which I thought was a clever design method. Also because of this setup this exhibit made me think about what my generation considers art and I was able to compare that to other cultures and times
