“Rooms” Collage

In our literature class, we read the poem called “Rooms”, written by Charlotte Mew.

The poem “rooms”, written by Charlotte Mew, describes two double meanings for that place. On the one hand, Charlotte describes rooms, simple rooms. She describes their smell and their noises. “ceaseless maddening sound”, in order to make us see how rooms look like. She talks about rooms in every part of the world, and she also talks about an specific one, a grave. On the other hand, by the repetition of “rooms”, we are not only able to read how she uses it, but we are also able to understand what does it really symbolize. The poet talks about abandoned “rooms”, that symbolize memories. In order to express those feelings, she portrays the fact that memories, rather happy ones or sad ones, die: “Rooms where for good or for ill—things died”, it does not matter if the memory is about love or abandonment, since all of them are going to die in our minds some day. In order to express this, she describes a specific room, a “dustier bed”. By mentioning a grave, Charlotte is able to emphasize her feelings about the fact that every memory is going to die someday, “Out there in the sun—in the rain”, it does not matter when, some day they will.

In this post I made a collage that shows many kinds of rooms: happy ones, abandoned, forgotten, rotten, colorful, etc. I created this to portray Charlotte’s point of view about the fact that rooms are memories, and memories die in our minds. No matter if they are delighted or sorrowful memories, what matters is that, at the end of the day, all of them will disappear, they will die.

 

Guión Cinematográfico

Una vez leidos los libros de Martín Fierro, ambos escritos por José Hernandez, nuestra profesora decidió hacer un proyecto grupal. Este consistía en dividirnos en grupos de a seis y elegir una de las escenas sucedidas en el transcurso del relato para trabajar. Luego debíamos elaborar un guión cinematográfico y actuarlo. Yo realicé mi trabajo con María Roggero, Silvestre Braun, Otto Kreutzer, Martina Ibarbia y Federika Marty.

Art Project

In our art class, we started a project after our teacher, Toia, showed us many sculptures, installations, paintings, etc done by different artists. The task consisted in choosing one artist with their art piece, as we were going to work with it all this term. I decided to do my work in group, so I worked with Rosario Vago, Federica Marty and Milagros Mendez. We chose Cornelia Parker with her installation “Dark Matter”.

Following our deep analysis on the installation, we had to create some of our own, so we started having a lot of ideas in order to create something new based on what Cornelia exposed. In our following presentation, our creative process is shown.
Presentation:

Grupo B: Marruecos, Portugal, España e Iran

En este trimestre, estuvimos trabajando con los equipos del mundial en nuestra clase de historia. Nuestra profesora, Belu Trimestra, nos separó en grupos y nos dio a cada uno una zona de los equipos de futbol del mundial 2018, con el objetivo de que cada integrante del mismo se apropie de un país y describa sus culturas, su historia, su aspecto político, económico, social, religioso, entre otras cosas mas. Mi grupo fue asignado la zona B, la que conforma los paises Marruecos, Portugal, España e Iran. Yo realizé la presentación de Iran, mientras que mis compañeros realizaron las otras. Ojalá aprendan nuevas culturas a través de este post!

Numbers and Quantity

In our language class, our teacher Marcela divided us in several groups and told us to do a presentation to explain the vocabulary of different topics in order to improve our English. I had to prepare a presentation about degree and intensity and I did mine with María Roggero and Vignesh Manwani. This is it. At the end of it we prepeared an activity in case you would like to improve your English too!

Hope you like it.

 

Virginia Woolf Biography

Virginia Woolf

  1. write down important facts about her life
  2. her influence on women writers
  3. the technique she introduced in Literature

Answers:

  1. She was born on January 25, 1882 in London, England. She died on March 28, 1941 in Lewes, Sussex, England. She was an english novelist, critic, and essayist. Her novels can be described as impressionistic, a literary style which attempts to inspire impressions rather than recreating reality. She studied german, greek and latin at the Ladies Department of King’s College London. She had mood swings and depression: she committed suicide in 1941. She began battling psychological issues right after her two half brothers sexually abused her. These issues worsened when her mother and one of her sisters died and were worsened even more after her father’s death, which led to her first stay in a mental health facility.
  2. Virginia tries to show in her novels that women can be satisfied without the company or the dependence of men. In the majority of her works, she portrays her feminist attitudes so that her ideas can be expressed
  3. In the writing, she masterfully employed the stream of consciousness technique which stresses “free writing”. In literary criticism, stream of consciousness is a narrative mode that seeks to portray an individual’s point of view by giving the written equivalent of the character’s thought processes, either in a loose interior monologue, or in connection to his or her actions.

 

The Hollow of the Three Hills Trailer

I will start my e-portfolio by presenting an activity I prepeared for the story we read in our literature class called “The Hollow of the Three Hills”, written by Nathaniel Hawthorne. I made a trailer about this story as if a movie about it was going to be launched. I hope you like it!

I prepared this trailer with the previous black and white pictures in order to portray how dramatic and gothic the story is. I wanted to express the sacrifice, death, regret, guilt, desperation and bravery themes that are presented in the story. In order to achieve that gothic illusion I did the following:

I chose those pictures to prove where it was set, in a hidden hollow between crumbling mountains . To be able to portray that atmosphere of of secrets, horror and misery, I chose a picture to expose the fact that the environment is far from society, dark, at twilight. I also selected several pictures of a woman in order to describe the protagonist’s isolation. Moreover, the picture of the witch is used to state the supernatural event in the story. Furthermore, I chose a picture of her possessing the young lady in order to express the unexplained manifestation that in the story takes place. Finally I decided to include pictures of a couple in order to show the protagonist’s previous life, where she had a husband and a son, with the intention of describe it before something terrible happen!
