Burning forest

Today in class I watched a video about a burning forest burning for 60 seconds. In this video was posted in 2018 the location not shown that I know was marveled by the flames. I watched this video due to recently answering a quiz jokingly, as one of the places you want to go to. Burning forest.  Even though burning foresty is not a good thing, the colour in this scene is a beautiful colour with yellow, orange, pink, and the blueish purple.  How it changed over time was unexpected to these colours their vibrant nature when night came around it really showed. This screenshot is taken 46 seconds in. This is the link. (there is no commentary I believe)

Lord loss - Darren Shan

There a book that I have wanted to read, the title is called Lord loss by Darren Shan, this book but it is a book that has been recommended to me, and a book that I have been interested in, it is about a werewolf-thing. A family cursed to be werewolves. and they have to break the curse from the demon I believe. A bit of the blurb on the back: The door feels red hot, as though a fire is burning behind it. i press an ear to the wood but there is no crackle. no smoke. just deep heavy breathing... and a curious dripping sound. (blood)

Tracey Tawhiao subversion AS 90913 v4 internal assessment 4 credits - Literacy (Post 1)

brief noting of the article - Subversion of Art

art is meant to subvert, it is a pure expression of a subjective way/an interpretation of seeing the world in each individual perspective. if everyone likes your art you are doing something wrong and if people dislike that means you are apparently doing something right. it meant to mess and unsettle some people and get an argument or conversation out of people or a reaction started about a controversial issue of sorts.

Tracey Tawhiao - Art piece

The panels and blues give it a feel pushing the gold out the most, the gold makes the fish stand out out the most and be the most noticeable at a first look I believe it is also tied with the arrow-like fern, but the dark blue really makes the gold stuck out compared to the lighter blues used of the left. there is a small text located of both side but I, unfortunately, I cannot read them. I believe the text will help give a different feel to the perspective of the art piece, at a first glance

How is subversion demonstrated?

it can give thoughts of confusion the many squares gives a feel of overlapping, as the arrow point in a different direction, trying to reach somewhere with the use of primary color mixed in. trying to be more seen than one each other it looks like they are constantly overthrowing one and each other. like ones trying to more concentrated than the other.

Science: Gods of Natural Disasters

 - Research a myth/legend/god(dess) that was used to explain a natural disaster/event.

= Ho-musubi

What is his story?

= Ho-musubi also known as Kagu-tsuchi or Hi-no kami in the Shinto religion of Japan, known as a God of Fire. his mother Izanami the female creator was fatally burned when giving birth to him; and his father Izanagi cut him into pieces creating serval new gods. 

During the hi-matsuri known as Fire festivals which is held a the beginning of the new year, worshippers carry back to their home hearths torches lit from the new fire started by the temple priest

What had the people observed and used to explain what was happening?

The fire god is revered as a purificatory agent as much as out of fear for his destructiveness. all fire-related events are caused by his destructiveness.

How does this match up to what is actually happening? connect to the scientific explanation.

=  such a destructive force as a fire in a culture where buildings were typically made out of wood and paper resulted in Kagutsuchi becoming an important object of Shinto rutial and a frequent receiver appeasing offerings. Don't leave fire around wood or paper unwatched it will catch on fire.

If something is mentioned once to allude to something else, it's called a symbol. If something is mentioned several times throughout a story, it's a motif. Think of symbols as baby motifs. They only grow up to become motifs if they're repeated throughout the course of a narrative.
