Chandler Day 275: Formal Analysis

photo-10This week we assigned an essay for Art History. We had to choose five works art from five different time periods, those being Ancient, Medieval, Renaissance, 18th-19th Century, and Contemporary/Modern. We then had to do a formal analysis of the pieces. I liked this project. Formally analyzing a work of art forces you to really look at the piece and everything that makes up the work. You pay attention to every little detail and instead of focusing on the subject, you focus on lines, lighting, brushwork, shape, and materials. You focus on the emotions that piece portrays and how you connect to it. It helps you to understand how to look at art. It’s a good practice to know.

Brandy Day186: ‘This Isn’t The Real Caesars Palace Is It?!’

I’ve always found the architecture amazing in Vegas. I mean at least they are putting lost money to good cause.
The buildings that stand incredibly tall with amazing detail. Not to mention all that go into the casinos as well as outside or around them. Just absolutely stunning.
In 1962 a man named Jay took the $35 million that was loaned to him and began to construct what was then 14 stories and 680 rooms and called it Caesars Palace. He chose the name because he thought it would evoke thoughts of royalty because of Roman general Julius Caesar. In 1969 he sold the hotel for $60 million.  There are now 3,960 rooms within 6 towers & 166,000 sq feet of gaming space.
Shot outside Caesars Palace and we are still unsure if it’s pager friendly….
