Touch art: opening session

Whole group.

We are going to watch two videos about the same artist, Esref Armagan. Then the teacher will ask several questions . Join the debate

Following this activity , the teacher will form working couples . Each pair must create a text about Armagan. You have to describe who is and what skills you have .

The first video is an add made by Volvo:

The second video is made by Superhumans (Discovery Channel) You have the transcription below.

Transcription:

1

00:00:02,620 --> 00:00:05,790

in Turkey lives the most remarkable
painter

 

2

00:00:05,790 --> 00:00:09,940

as ref arm again an artist boom with at
times

 

3

00:00:09,939 --> 00:00:14,968

opening no one can call me blind I can
see more with my fingers inside the

 

4

00:00:14,968 --> 00:00:16,719

people can see with their lives

 

5

00:00:16,719 --> 00:00:20,660

no as ref proves that you don't need I'm

 

6

00:00:20,660 --> 00:00:27,528

to see

 

7

00:00:27,528 --> 00:00:28,960

at the University of Toronto

 

8

00:00:28,960 --> 00:00:32,118

perception and cognition psychologist
doctor john kennedy

 

9

00:00:32,118 --> 00:00:35,420

more is investigating the abilities on
an astounding man

 

10

00:00:35,420 --> 00:00:39,210

spirit has rash the blind painter s for
health

 

11

00:00:39,210 --> 00:00:42,689

is a blind man who has been drawing
pictures

 

12

00:00:42,689 --> 00:00:45,948

since he was a child he draws

 

13

00:00:45,948 --> 00:00:49,149

astonishingly well many people would say

 

14

00:00:49,149 --> 00:00:52,929

he draws better then many sighted people

 

15

00:00:52,929 --> 00:00:56,719

s restless entered

 

16

00:00:56,719 --> 00:01:02,018

p

 

17

00:01:02,018 --> 00:01:03,829

a

 

18

00:01:03,829 --> 00:01:10,290

a

 

19

00:01:10,290 --> 00:01:14,618

astronomical has a genetic mutation that
caused him to be born without eyes

 

20

00:01:14,618 --> 00:01:16,980

no

 

21

00:01:16,980 --> 00:01:20,180

this seeming defect has given him the
most remarkable power

 

22

00:01:20,180 --> 00:01:23,520

while he paints a landscape you cannot
see

 

23

00:01:23,519 --> 00:01:30,519

this artist is changing everything
science is assumed about vision

 

24

00:01:31,230 --> 00:01:34,250

as ref has never seen light you

 

25

00:01:34,250 --> 00:01:37,900

into picture is that I start by

 

26

00:01:37,900 --> 00:01:41,490

imagining shapes to have already felt

 

27

00:01:41,489 --> 00:01:44,640

the knife on those shapes into the
painting I want to create

 

28

00:01:44,640 --> 00:01:48,099

and make a plan to the picture
completely in my head

 

29

00:01:48,099 --> 00:01:55,099

before I start to grow old

 

30

00:02:15,550 --> 00:02:18,860

what is standing out as urs paintings
his use of color

 

31

00:02:18,860 --> 00:02:22,680

shadow and composition and most
importantly

 

32

00:02:22,680 --> 00:02:27,370

perspective the way he draws object
receding into the distance

 

33

00:02:27,370 --> 00:02:31,450

it is not meant to be possible to pain
such recognizable and well composed

 

34

00:02:31,449 --> 00:02:33,079

images without eyes

 

35

00:02:33,080 --> 00:02:37,070

at harvard Medical School's neurology
center

 

36

00:02:37,069 --> 00:02:42,599

scientists are mystified by a stress
abilities they want to scan his brain in

 

37

00:02:42,599 --> 00:02:44,639

order to find out how he does it

 

38

00:02:44,639 --> 00:02:48,319

Ashraf is doing something that we
thought

 

39

00:02:48,319 --> 00:02:52,709

was locked in the visual brain and was
only possible

 

40

00:02:52,710 --> 00:02:57,240

if you had visual angle and it's the way
as ref grapples with three-dimensional

 

41

00:02:57,240 --> 00:03:00,230

space that has the scientists
particularly excited

 

42

00:03:00,229 --> 00:03:04,530

but as Ref which is that people would
pay more attention to what he paints

 

43

00:03:04,530 --> 00:03:09,219

not how he campaigned he wants to be
known as a great artist in his own right

 

44

00:03:09,219 --> 00:03:13,109

tried on like I want to be remembered as
a person who's

 

45

00:03:13,110 --> 00:03:16,349

able to see the world with the
fingertips

 

46

00:03:16,348 --> 00:03:21,109

I want to be remembered for my heart but
for now he's agreed to help the

 

47

00:03:21,110 --> 00:03:21,959

scientists

 

48

00:03:21,959 --> 00:03:25,750

and doctor Kennedy has devised a most
ambitious experiment

 

49

00:03:25,750 --> 00:03:29,750

he wants to find out if SRF truly
understands perspective

 

50

00:03:29,750 --> 00:03:33,098

my experiment is going to be

 

51

00:03:33,098 --> 00:03:37,839

asking esra to draw up a particular
building

 

52

00:03:37,840 --> 00:03:41,009

in Florence in Italy

 

53

00:03:41,009 --> 00:03:46,259

that was the source the origin on the
discovery of perspective of

 

54

00:03:46,259 --> 00:03:53,259

Halloween show depth in pictures in 1413

 

55

00:03:54,870 --> 00:03:58,950

Filippo brunettes keys stood on the
steps to the dorm the great cathedral he

 

56

00:03:58,949 --> 00:04:00,009

designed and built

 

57

00:04:00,009 --> 00:04:04,870

you look across the square the baptistry
octagonal Roman structure

 

58

00:04:04,870 --> 00:04:08,450

it was this building the finally unveil
to him

 

59

00:04:08,449 --> 00:04:15,189

the equation perspective the complex
geometry makes it extremely difficult to

 

60

00:04:15,189 --> 00:04:15,739

draw all

 

61

00:04:15,739 --> 00:04:20,470

even if you can see

 

62

00:04:20,470 --> 00:04:23,660

penny tackle a complicated object like
the baptistry

 

63

00:04:23,660 --> 00:04:27,250

and handle all its parts draw it can get

 

64

00:04:27,250 --> 00:04:30,689

all three dimensions of space and get
them right

 

65

00:04:30,689 --> 00:04:34,228

if he can this

 

66

00:04:34,228 --> 00:04:41,000

man is a stunned in the

 

67

00:04:41,000 --> 00:04:45,168

as ref the blind painter has arrived in
Boston he's agreed to meet the

 

68

00:04:45,168 --> 00:04:47,168

world-renowned neurology team at Harbor

 

69

00:04:47,168 --> 00:04:51,899

they're amazed by him want to know how a
man without eyes campaign such

 

70

00:04:51,899 --> 00:04:53,138

incredible pictures

 

71

00:04:53,139 --> 00:05:00,139

using scale and perspective

 

72

00:05:04,310 --> 00:05:07,889

their experiment will involve putting
extra in an MRI scan a

 

73

00:05:07,889 --> 00:05:11,729

asking him to draw home and observing
the activity in his brain

 

74

00:05:11,730 --> 00:05:16,540

0 this

 

75

00:05:16,540 --> 00:05:20,120

as rough must remain as still as
possible so they can get a clear image

 

76

00:05:20,120 --> 00:05:22,189

in his prime

 

77

00:05:22,189 --> 00:05:26,219

as he draws a picture the scientists are
riveted by what they see on the monitors

 

78

00:05:26,220 --> 00:05:31,090

the regions have his brain that
shouldn't have any activity due to his

 

79

00:05:31,089 --> 00:05:32,279

blindness

 

80

00:05:32,279 --> 00:05:36,279

react in an extraordinary way you

 

81

00:05:36,279 --> 00:05:41,479

the visual parts of the brain the ones
that for normal sighted people lined up

 

82

00:05:41,480 --> 00:05:42,850

like Christmas trees

 

83

00:05:42,850 --> 00:05:46,540

when we're looking at things roles
became alive

 

84

00:05:46,540 --> 00:05:49,629

and excited I'm incredibly dynamic

 

85

00:05:49,629 --> 00:05:52,829

whenever Ashcraft was taking withdrawing

 

86

00:05:52,829 --> 00:05:56,839

perspective a severe water stress MRI
results reveal miss something

 

87

00:05:56,839 --> 00:05:57,829

groundbreaking

 

88

00:05:57,829 --> 00:06:01,899

yes rest brain shows us that vision
involves more than just the information

 

89

00:06:01,899 --> 00:06:03,959

brought in through our eyes

 

90

00:06:03,959 --> 00:06:09,289

clean from vision it turns out also
involves our ability to understand space

 

91

00:06:09,290 --> 00:06:13,660

I Bravo what s resolutions

 

92

00:06:13,660 --> 00:06:17,550

is that we miss understood vision so we
thought

 

93

00:06:17,550 --> 00:06:20,860

pictures a creature's a vision

 

94

00:06:20,860 --> 00:06:24,310

because they're dealing with distance
and direction and angle

 

95

00:06:24,310 --> 00:06:28,639

non we realize all those things are
available to touch

 

96

00:06:28,639 --> 00:06:31,959

as well and so we could have talked out
pictures

 

97

00:06:31,959 --> 00:06:38,959

as well as visual pictures

 

98

00:06:39,259 --> 00:06:42,060

as VM forges through the frozen
wasteland

 

99

00:06:42,060 --> 00:06:46,280

a blind man from turkey is going to
attempt to outdo Filippo Brunelleschi

 

100

00:06:46,279 --> 00:06:49,399

the most important architect to the
Renaissance

 

101

00:06:49,399 --> 00:06:53,478

I'm gonna ask esra to set

 

102

00:06:53,478 --> 00:06:57,180

here or bring lasting loss and for all
this build I

 

103

00:06:57,180 --> 00:07:01,468

not yeah it's rather I'm no fool

 

104

00:07:01,468 --> 00:07:04,769

that we have so much to do

 

105

00:07:04,769 --> 00:07:08,829

there's no really interesting building
right beside us

 

106

00:07:08,829 --> 00:07:13,288

I'm going to ask you did wrong

 

107

00:07:13,288 --> 00:07:20,219

first we gotta find out the shape of the
building this time

 

108

00:07:20,220 --> 00:07:24,820

when you come to the corner then it goes
to the Mac as ref has been given no

 

109

00:07:24,819 --> 00:07:26,509

prior clues about this building

 

110

00:07:26,509 --> 00:07:29,789

he's entered into this experiment
without knowing what he was going to be

 

111

00:07:29,790 --> 00:07:30,540

asked to do

 

112

00:07:30,540 --> 00:07:34,670

what s your must do is draw the size and
the baptistry upwards

 

113

00:07:34,670 --> 00:07:38,000

and downwards so that the lines converge
on the horizon

 

114

00:07:38,000 --> 00:07:42,610

this is what we know less ki did and
this is what even now most cited people

 

115

00:07:42,610 --> 00:07:43,490

get wrong

 

116

00:07:43,490 --> 00:07:48,530

okay this report I would like you to do
is to draw the baptistry

 

117

00:07:48,529 --> 00:07:52,039

as if you're standing in front and

 

118

00:07:52,040 --> 00:07:55,720

the roof is far above your head

 

119

00:07:55,720 --> 00:07:59,300

and you're in front on one wall

 

120

00:07:59,300 --> 00:08:02,680

of the building a new

 

121

00:08:02,680 --> 00:08:09,680

okay go for it

 

122

00:08:12,028 --> 00:08:19,028

%uh

 

123

00:08:28,310 --> 00:08:32,899

mom 00

 

124

00:08:32,899 --> 00:08:36,549

125

00:08:36,549 --> 00:08:39,639

00

 

127

00:08:43,059 --> 00:08:48,169

class rest this is the moment of truth
chemistry or the bottom two lines

 

128

00:08:48,169 --> 00:08:49,088

converging

 

129

00:08:49,089 --> 00:08:56,089

accord towards the top on our all

 

130

00:08:57,870 --> 00:08:59,000

I

 

131

00:08:59,000 --> 00:09:03,980

0

 

132

00:09:03,980 --> 00:09:06,950

cool

 

133

00:09:06,950 --> 00:09:11,129

astronomical is just said his place in
history home

 

134

00:09:11,129 --> 00:09:18,019

his outdone Filippo Bunnell escape a
renaissance mastin

 

135

00:09:18,019 --> 00:09:25,019

okay in

 

136

00:09:25,479 --> 00:09:31,720

gone lemay and

 

137

00:09:31,720 --> 00:09:35,729

this is a moment that happen first

 

138

00:09:35,729 --> 00:09:39,589

six hundred years ago the next time it
happens

 

139

00:09:39,589 --> 00:09:44,830

was today

 

140

00:09:44,830 --> 00:09:47,190
