HUM 100 Project 1 Artifact Chart Although you will work on various assignments throughout the course to support you in completing this assignment, this project is not due until Week 6. Artifact What is your chosen artifact ? Include a link to or a picture of the artifact. Starry Night by Vincent Van Gogh tarry-night.html I. Describe the artifact in detail. For instance, how would you describe it to someone who could not see it? Vincent Van Gogh’s Starry Night painted in 1889 is an Oil canvas painting that depicts a night time dream-like, the sky seems exaggerated as in not what a normal sky view of a city at night with bright colors for the stars on the top and dark colors for the buildings on the bottom. A very tall exaggerated tree like structure on the left in black going from the bottom to the top of the painting. The painting is currently in The Museum of Modern Art on display. II. Choose elements of the artifact that you believe are most important to how you experience it and explain why. For instance, what particularly catches your senses or makes you want to keep experiencing it? Does the choice of medium impact your experience? Starry Night is experienced by sight, it is an oil painting that has an exaggerated, drawn out as if Van Gogh didn’t want to fully pick up his brush, feel to it. The exaggeration makes me want to know more of why he chose to paint like that. The painting is detailed enough to show differences in stars, a moon, and homes but vague enough to keep you focus on the stretched lines used to draw them. The medium is oil and canvas however it does not affect my experience since I’m more focused on the actual painting. Today you can find Starry Night on different things such as bags, posters, mugs, cup coasters but it still has that exaggerated dreamlike feel as the painting
