TOK 2, Day 27 (10/20): Newspaper Blackout

First, we should review upcoming due-dates, deadlines, and responsibilities:

  • CAS Updates, CAS Project
  • Extended Essay
  • Other Courses
Then, we will finish our Newspaper Blackout Poems

Topics for discussion:
  1. How do the limitations of the words in the article force you to be creative in ways that a "blank page" does not?
  2. What limitations does this exercise suggest for ALL forms of art?  How is this related to Picasso's declaration that "art is theft?"
  3. Is originality and creativity by necessity really just a form of remixing and reconfiguring?
