Is a human obliged to seek inner development?
Must a human achieve something to justify existing? Are humans subjected to the forces of nature?
Do humans live in harmony with nature?
Do humans master nature? Are people considered basically trustworthy?
Are people not to be trusted?
Is there a neutral attitude toward humans? Does is respect the past? Is it oriented toward traditional values?
Does it respect the present? Is it oriented toward the situational?
Does it respect the future? Is it oriented toward achieving a goal? Yes, we view through a lens of personal context
Yet we can make connections in unfamiliar territory through ART for Deeper Understanding http://www.wordle.net/create Is there an emphasis on individualism? Is the self the source of reality?
Is there an emphasis on collectivism?
Is there evidence of an authority that must be followed? This presentation based on content from
'Art and Culture' facilitated by
Sandra Mumford Fowler and Fachon Silberstein,
Summer Institute for Intercultural Exchange Is there an attitude about ACTIVITY compared to contemplation? Is there evidence of an attitude toward HUMAN NATURE? Can you identify a sense of TIME connected to the image? Is there a message or question about SOCIAL RELATIONSHIPS? Can you identify an attitude toward NATURE?
