  1. Why do you like the sculpture?
  2. What is the best feature or what is unique about it?
  3. Write 3 or 4 lines describing the sculpture using vocabulary that is relevant from the last 5 weeks study.
  4. ALL THREE COMPONENTS OF THIS DISCUSSION MUST BE PRESENT TO EARN THE BEST GRADE POSSIBLE ON THE MIDTERM PART III.

To clear up any confusion...

If you haven't watched the videos attached to the assignment for your midterm, this may be confusing. I am not talking about a meteorite or an alien spaceship...or could I be? Google "an object in space, sculpture" if you're still confused. You might even Google Brancusi for some idea of his philosophy on 3 dimensional objects occupying space. 

Consider this: The peculiarity of sculpture is that it creates a three-dimensional object in space. Painting may strive to live on a two-dimensional plane, the illusion of space, but it is space itself as a perceived quality that becomes the peculiar concern of the sculptor.
