  • Self Portrait Analysis

    Self Portrait: In the self-portrait I tried to use a mix of the two strategies into one photo. I incorporated the strategies of contradiction and also exhibitionism to portray the destruction of stress. I tried to express a contradiction of my personality through the visualization of a gag, and the process of stress causing the contradiction of my true personality. The gag, which is stretched is to appear as it is skin being stretched. This is supposed to symbolize the contradiction of my personality as stress makes me feel as if my whole being is being stretched and cracked. The “stretched skin” could visualize a gag as stress has destroyed my will to speak and reach out for comfort, it contradicts my true personality as a talkative, usually optimistic person. The gag and the stretched skin are a contradiction to my personality and symbolizes the destruction of stress as it gags and restricts my true talkative personality to emerge again. The stretched skin also is an exhibitionism as it at first appears laughable my mouth cannot be seen, but gives off a sinister note that the stretched skin also symbolizes a gag. The red strand by my eye and black/gray streaks under my eye symbolizes the consequences of stress and reflects the contradiction of my personality. The red strand and black/grey streaks amplify the sinister path and destruction of stress as it drains, and suck the life out of the heart and soul of a person. The red leaf and background is used to connect how…

  • Heterogeneity In Cities

    Cities are made up of numbers, density, and heterogeneity (Wirth, 1938) that enable innovation and deviance to establish cultural groups through relationships, opportunities, and freedom.

For example, cities create highly fragmented relationships that do not fulfill the needs of individuals and…

  • French New Wave Analysis

    n utilised in their own works. Though “the young French cinema indirectly reproached Hollywood’s long-established narratives and restricted storyline subterfuges” (Lanzoni, 206), the French New Wave directors also had a longstanding appreciation for directorial greats like Alfred Hitchcock, Fritz Lang and Orson Welles.

  • Fahrenheit 451 By Ray Bradbury: An Analysis

    In the novel, Fahrenheit 451, by Ray Bradbury, Montag, the book-saver, tried to escape the world of the overwhelming technology. Social activities were replaced by inane TV shows where clowns tear their limbs apart, families are replaced by the “family” on the television, and where thoughts are stopped by deafening TV commercials.
