I have to say that blogging became a very interesting experience, maybe not at first but later i can see the results. well, the first time we did did the blogging thing i thougt "oh this it's new", personaly I never tried to do it before, so it cost me a bit. Then couple of times later, it was easier to use (so in the tecnical sense i definily improve). If I enjoy or not doing it, it's relative of the topics of the blogging, there was some post about art and our preference, that was nice because you can say what you like and thing like that. The bad side was doing it at home, when you were not in class. I enjoy comment other people too, and read there's posting work. But tooking about the real progress in english thing i think that the blogging and the posting thing it really works to make you improve you writing and reading habilities, you cant notice how you make ideas and sentences more fast and better and you can use a more creative way of writing. Other thing that i guess it's great is the freedom of treats the topics and ways to express yourself, because with that you learn and practice an especifical and usefull way of normal tooking, this is a fluid and daily one. At the same time the sistem it's good because, you are force to an especifical number of words so you cant notice how faster you are improve thanks to the time you use to make your post. Well, finally a really recommend this type of homeworks, i think there are interactive, ludic and playful, and we can prove what you improve working with it. Maybe i've change doing on the class time, because we perfecly can do ir at home, and use that time for other activity, but this is just a detail and i can also see the good side of that and it's that it force us to do it, because you can forget it doing outside of de classroom.

between-look= entre-vista

First of all, i have to mention it's that the way that Ken Robinson has to says thing, making jokes and everything i thinks it's great and make that espontainously you put more attention of what he it's saying. so about the contain of that, well i'm agree with what he says about creativity and the way that shools kill it. This i guess it's a fact (and not just because there art estrict school) the school programs should increase all kinds of skill and help to develop diferent ways of thinking and not under an squematic pre-determined way. You can see the consecuences of this problems for example, in the academical choises and work choises, people are not just to it to do what they want with liberty, the ajust to universal canons of save successful. Killing creativity it's killing liberty in many ways. Education should be more flexible and less punitive, kids have a lot to say about that.

Well, my favourite subject this semester is “ the spectacle society: reeding Guy Debord”. This course it is about neomarxism on the perpective of one author who it’s cineast and writer and has diferent reflexions about comercial and consumer contemporary society, he speaks from Marx but also from Lukacs and other authors who saw the expantion of the capitalism economy to all the dimention of life. The name of the profesor who teaches this course it’s Rodrigo Zuñiga, he it’s a great aesthetics and teacher, we are all, agree with that . I like this subject for two reasons, The first one its basicaly because I all realdy have one course with this teacher so I know his sistem of working and the way the see and treats the topics, and the second one it’s because de topics of the book “spectacle society” the movies, the other authors and the other topics around are very interesting to me. At the time, I’ve learn the begginings of marxism and the way that the society of spectacle applies to all usual life, not just television and cinema.

T.h.e....B.e.s.t : uncle Martin

This it's very hard thing to do, because in my field there are millions of greats minds, and always a good writer has lots of other influences before. But if I had to choose, I think will be Martin Heidegger's work. Even if he didn't work in the specific art area he did an incredible writing about certain topic of post-aesthetics. Well, he it's an german philosopher from twenty century, and he changes the way to study art and see the artwork. It was an disciple of Husserl, the pionner in phenomenology and best theacher of Heidegger, where he gets the biggest influence in this particulary way to look at the studied objects. I find Heidegger's work as the most important theories of art in the last years because what he tried to do it's a construction of an specifical treatment of artworks leaving all what tradition left for us, he change the aesthetic look for an fhenomenical one (worried about "world" and "earth" two concepts that conform human life and has the best appeareance in the art). He invent a position to art."Ser y Tiempo" it's the most important book of Heidegger, but he treats arts in "Caminos de Bosque".
