Our groups abstraction art piece represents the conflict that came with Harambe's tragic death. We represented this event with the color pallete we chose which consisted of dark shades of green, blue, gray, yellow, and black. Each individual color meant/represented something or someone for example the spiral shapes of green represent how the Cincinnati Zoo tried to replicate Harambe's natural habitat and how it would never really be "natural". The black boarder represents how caged his habitat actually was and how angered animal activist were about this. The blue swirls represent the people that were present during this accident and the yellow specks represent the memes that expressed everyone's happiness as well as sadness towards Harambe. Finally in the center there is a black "void" to represent the meme, the legend, and source of not only my happiness but my other group member's happiness as well, Harambe.
After further reading Descartes’ work and exploring his philosophical views his first principle “Cogito Ergo Sum” (“I think, therefore I am”) has a much deeper meaning but yet simple in a way as well. After going over terms such as perception, perceiving, and irrefutable truths Descartes’ principle refers to his way of deeming whether something is really an irrefutable truth or a doubt through perception as well as intuition. The principle itself as well as his work states the senses can not be trusted since they can trick us but they are irrefutable since it’s by intuition our senses act/sense a certain thing. This intuition is immediate knowledge of a thing rather than reasoning. Thinking is intuitive to Descartes, it’s what makes a huge part of his personality and character due to this intuition he/his existence is irrefutable.
