Crisis and Resurgence
Task One: Watch this final segment of New York: A Documentary Film.
Task Two: Respond to this prompt.
Task Four: Read Tama Janowitz’s, “Physics.”
Task Five: Watch this excerpt from the Godfrey Reggio film Koyaanisqatsi scored by Philip Glass. The name of the film is a native American word that means “life out of balance,” and, as a whole, the film can be taken as a critique of industrial civilization. However, there are places where the film captures the city as a beautify integrated organic machine. I consider this excerpt to be one of them.
Task Five: Respond to this prompt.
Task Six: Upload the final version of your Urban Arts & Culture brochure as a PDF using the form below. Remember that the 3 panels of the brochure should be arranged, left to right: 5-6-1, and on the second page 2-3-4. 1 is the front cover, 2-3-4 is the full brochure unfolded on the inside, 5 is the right-hand inside flap (across from 2), and 6 is the back cover. We will look at these in class and critique them.
