PAR: To explain my ideas that I put in my triptych to the world Ideas from Europe and Asia changed the world.
by making life more efficient and organized because of the Renaissance innovations such as clocks, medical innovations, and printing press.
The ideas from the Renaissance changed the Renaissance world by welcoming new innovations that lead to making their life’s easier. Ideas such as clocks, medical innovations, printing press, changes in philosophy, and new art. The clock was first developed in China but then German innovators created mechanical systems that made it smaller and easier. The clock allowed for a more accurate way to tell the time. Unlike the sun dial the clock could work at night so it lasted longer and can work at any time. Next the medical innovations, there were many different innovations but some of the more important ones were medical books, university’s, and clinics. Having the medical knowledge and the printing press allowed for medical books to be a thing which made knowledge easier to access and diseases easier to fight. Now for the printing press this was probably one of the most important innovations because it allowed for Martin Luther to fight back, medical books to be made, and books. The printing press also allowed for news to spread easier with news paper which made people a lot more aware of what was going on in the world. Changes in philosophy rather than focusing on religion they focused on new ways to improve society by building off of the innovations and creating new innovations. With the new philosophy came new art styles rather than drawing angels and god they drew portraits and landscapes. Overall the Renaissance innovations were a gateway for other innovations and for inventors to help improve the world and make it more efficient.
The traditional ideas that people had before the Renaissance include sundials, curved glass, Religious art, focusing on religion, and hand written notes. For centuries people tried and tried again to find a way to accurately tell time one of those ways was a sundial. The sundial would tell the time by using the sun to project the shadows on different notches in the flat stone. The sun dial was a good start however it wasn’t reliable or precise, also it cannot work during the night. Curved glass is the base of glasses except the people would have just the glass piece and they would hold one piece up to their eye. The only downside of this was that they were a hassle to hold and you only had one, they could cut you, and last they would let people see so they were really rare and expensive. Because the world was focused on religion so was the art. When you like at the art pieces from before the Renaissance you will most likely find the same things Heaven, Hell, angels, god, demons, people, etc. Art was also not a big thing back then because people did not have a lot of time to do that. Like I mentioned in the last sentences their philosophy was based off of religion. For example people would do things and spend money on ceremonies or documents because if they didn’t they would go to hell. The Church and other religions had a lot of power over their followers because people did not have the knowledge so they did not know what was true. Lastly before the printing press and printer people would have monks our servants write hand written notes with ink and a quill. Paper was not commonly used so it was mostly upper class that would have people write it for them or record meetings or ceremonies. Overall I think that all of these inventions had their highs and their weaknesses however if you were upper class these inventions and ideas would be better.
The new ideas in the Renaissance changed my world toady by improving on the past inventions to continue to reach the goal of a more organized and efficient life. Ideas such as cameras, books, medical university’s and online websites wth info, and modern art. By continuing to improve with the lenses innovators found a way to make cameras and now we have all different types of cameras and different types of lenses that are used for different things. Some examples are underwater cameras help marine biologists and they had to create a special lens than there are the space rovers which needed a very strong lenses. Thanks to the printing press we now have printers that give us books and book are used in so many different ways. For example books help spread knowledge, they entertain us, and they can be used to share a story or a talent. Nowadays we also have universities on medical schools which allows for more doctors and more researchers to help us with diseases from cancer all the way down to the flu. We even have websites where you can search up different symptoms or medication that you can take if you have a certain sickness. Lastly modern art is now more abstract. Modern art is a mix of everything from landscapes, to portraits of animals and humans, all the way down to just colours that have been put together and shaded or painted on top of each other in funky ways. Art is a lot more free and open. Overall the improvements on the innovations of the Renaissance have changed our lives significantly and making them a more efficient and healthier place.
In conclusion the ideas from Europe and Asia opened a whole new door to innovations that change our lives significantly by making them more efficient and organized. Our lives now depend on these innovations because we have used them to change the perspective on things. The ideas have helped to spread knowledge wether it be through books or online and they have helped to make us more organized with clocks.
For The triptych I used Superimpose x to Photo shop the images. I decided to focus on the most important inventions like the printing press but then I also decided to do my favourite like for example instead of adding modern glasses or contacts for lenses I chose to do a camera because I love photography. I learned all about the Renaissance and how the different ways of thinking and inventions changed over time and continue to change and evolve. The ideas back then have significantly changed our world for the better. Something that will stick with me forever that I have learned is that so many of the items and objects that I use everyday were improvements from one era that decided to change the world in philosophy and testing the boundaries of innovating. My favourite part of this project was definitely photoshopping and creating the triptych because it was very relaxing and fun to let my creativity flow. The hardest part of my least favourite part of the project was writing a historical explanation because there was so much information to fit into one paragraph so I had to break it down. I really Enjoyed this project and I hope to be using superimpose again for another project.
