essay for Ideas of the 20th century

This is the essay posted by me for the course on EDX "The ideas of 20th century"... READ THE FOLLOWING PASSAGE FROM FITZGERALD’S "THIS SIDE OF PARADISE" AND RESPOND TO THE PROMPT BELOW."There were no more wise men; there were no more heroes... Amory had grown up to a thousand books, a thousand lies; he had listened eagerly to people who pretended to know, who knew nothing. The mystical reveries of saints that had once filled him with awe in the still hours of night, now vaguely repelled him." In the above passage, Amory rejects the values and faith he had grown up with. In 400-800 words, give an example of a writer or poet who rejects Amory’s attitude, then give an example of an author who agrees with Amory. Support your examples with textual evidence and try to show how deeply the authors agree or disagree. (As much as possible, don’t just say that the authors agree or disagree about an issue, but try to explain why they do so.)
Amory is the character in “…

touch of hands

I get immense pleasure when I create things with my own hands. I feel that is what is design for me. My design has to have that touch of mine which can not be replicated by anyone else. I also feel, when I work on any product or surface, it has to have my own self. That is the element which will add a new touch to the product, it will give its own character. I do characterization of my work through the identity which can be brought by hand and can't be replicated in any other possible way.

Josef Albers

Josef Albers
Josef Albers is a pioneer in 20th century modern design movement. A student and later on a teacher a Bauhaus...as per the Albers Foundation he was the first student to offer the "master" position at Bauhaus. During my design education, I learned about color interaction from the theory given by him. His color theories hold true even in today's time, it teaches one to see and observe. The final product of design may change with changing times, but the innate human thought stays the same, and thus the relevance of foundation level design teaching. He is not only a color theorist but he was also a painter. He also taught preliminary course in paper at Bauhaus. More about Josef Albers can be found athttp://www.albersfoundation.org/
