Prologue ——Through the lecture EDS 223, I not only get the knowledge to relate to the topic of every lecture but also the way to think and solve when I get trouble. Every instructor has a different way of expression in class after listen Instructor talk about their own experiences and unique insights into things. My understanding of things has sublimated I feel will change my opinion of things help me understand some abstract idea, blind area for understanding new things and make my thinking more rigorous and meticulous than before.

hen class begin I feel sleepy because I just returned to the United States from China. When I am going to sleep Daniel's roar let the sleepy me suddenly wake up, it not just because his roar scared me its because his roar express kind of emotion.

The instructors began to talk about the meaning of their five major themes. for this lecture. Different instructors have different opinion on same thesis which make increase my expect Before this meeting, before know DANIEL I feel it was awkwardness to roar in front of other, after listen Daniel’s speech what I feel is when you on the stage you need to express your emotion, your ideas, use your own way let audience resonance your emotion and your ideas, no matter the way you use the important thing is let audience feel your feeling.

After lecture back to my apartment I was selfreflection did I play good in my role? ·a student ·a son ·a friend

My father always tells me that you are a student and that learning should be priority duty; Am I a good student? I am a good I never missed any class unless my phone's battery run out cannot provide an alarm clock for me; I am a bad student I start work on my assignment until due is comming.

Do I play good in my role?

In this speech Diaz introduced himself, Diaz has a wonderful family he play different role at different place.

STORY


MY Story in Alaska

T

his photograph was taken during the trip to Alaska. When the sun just came up, I got up and go for breakfast, standing in the middle of the y-junction, a bunch of holy light on my face. After the lecture I recall my story at that morning---One step, two steps walk in the snow with the crunch of snow, Touch the branches bent with snow, slip on the ground that snow melted by the sun and then frozen again, feel lose balance, lower my center of gravity, when LOOK UP see this view. I stand up a beam of sunlight came at me through the trees, I feel a sense of warm on my face I look up at the sun I see this wonderful PICTURE combine with sunshine, forest, wooden house, and snow then I use my phone FREEZE this moment.

Common sense is the only Judgment? P

eople's first impression of a cat is that it is very cute and its cry makes people feel pity, but what I feel is all those things is kind of way to survey in human environment, know that cats actually are high level in the food chain.

This is my cat, I raised him in the vegetable garden on the roof. An unfortunate sparrow was caught by my cat while stealing my food.

U

ntil I read an article I learn something NEW that break first impression I learned about cats from other people's descriptions of them most stray cat only gets close to people and allow people stroke hits head only cats feel people will give some food or cats keep people at arm's length. On animal wants to come into contact with other animals much larger than itself, unless for survey.

Cat want food we want play with cute cat.

HiStory & Design T

he stained glass in my photo was originally from Notre Dame de Paris; it moved to Louvre because of the fire at Notre Dame de Paris. When I saw this stained glass, I deeply regret that Notre Dame de Paris was burnt and I can feel the former prosperity of Paris. Looking at the conflagration optimistically the existence of architecture itself is a history or a story, so many famous building has been destroyed and rebuilt in their history and every time after rebuilt the building's shape will be changed due to different era. Notre Dame de Paris is made up of a building and its own story without the story and history Notre Dame de Paris will no longer be Notre Dame de Paris. During the time that Notre Dame DE Paris burned down, there were different theories as to why it was burned, one of the things that I care a lot about is that there are radical Islamists who are trying to start a fire because of the inconsistencies, but, the government is afraid of spreading the flames and not making it public (It's just a saying I heard from someone else), but reflect a problem, but, it also reflects the fact that most people want others to believe in the same things as they do. This kind of behavior is obviously undesirable in this diversified world. All identities, all people, all denominations, are worthy of respect.

Man Already Wise T

his photo is in a town I stood on the second floor of a one hundred - year - old house, the people of that era can use the ingenious structure and the use of material for warm in winter and cool in summer, the whole town has perfect water supply and drainage system, even if it rains or not water and can easily get life need water, reasonable use of housing for courtyard houses to let a person feel a high degree of comfort. Apart from the convenience brought by electrical appliances, I feel that this house is more comfortable than the apartment where I live now. ——When everyone is creating something new or exploring the unknown, why not stop and see what the previous people have left us.

10


Conjecture & reality This photo looks like that I want express there is a cold snow day crow can't find food and try to get some leftovers from a dog's bowl, But the dogs did not to welcome the crows, the amount of food per dog per day is fixed, share means hungry.

dogs led.

But the truth is every time after pulling the sled, the breeder gives the dogs some food, and crows are in the habit of storing food for the winter; I take this photo is because this is the biggest crow I've ever seen.

Place


HiStory & Place T

he picture shows the Arc de Triomphe in Orange, located in Orange, France. When I came to Orange, we seemed to be the only visitors, although the history of the Arc de Triomphe dates back to 30 BC when Provence is still Under the rule of Rome, but usually mentioning the first reaction of the Arc de Triomphe, it is located in Charles de Gaulle Square, Paris, France. If you let go of the influence of the characters, you will notice all the stories behind any Arc de Triomphe are brilliant.

How to DEFINE? There is no definite and single answer. Only depends on the angle you treat the problem, the answer you expected.

13


Nature's Give T

his photograph was taken in a bay in southern China, where a large number of turtles laid eggs every year. But because of human killing and the ordinary traffic of ships, turtles are endangered, people realize the seriousness of the problem, a biological chain is about to break, trying to make up the mistake start protecting sea turtles. Although human beings are aware of the problem of protecting turtles, they still cannot make up for the damaged ecosystem. After I went there then started researching the knowledge about turtle such as their habits why are eggs laid on this beach, what I notice is originally tank has only one layer, because if the enemy is on the right, you have to turn the whole tank to attack. People are inspired by the big turtle carrying the little turtle, it was found that the little turtle could rotate freely on the smooth shell of the big turtle, and rotating cannon was invented.

14


Considered all aspects T

his photo I take at a hotel near ASU, sand storm rush to Tempe from north, the whole city's ground turns yellow after the dust storm, I wonder if there is any way to control the dust storm.

Before lecture I think afforestation can solve the problem, but it is not as simple as I imagined: What kind of plants should be planted? Where should it be grown? How to ensure water supply? Can the nutrients in the soil support large areas of cultivation? Whether changing the original ecology will bring negative effects, what kind? It's important to come up with ideas, but how to implement them perfectly requires a lot of solutions, and making plans also requires a lot of data support, it is necessary to create a plan acceptable to MOST people.

15


Meaning & Doing P

ersonally I feel Daniel’s speech was very expressive we talk about how do you define love, home. What I feel in my life is love gives value to everything around me, such as I love play game; love makes me choose the current major. Home is the place full of love makes me feel safe.

This photo was taken in Geneva, Switzerland. There is a saying “The swan strictly adheres to monogamy in one life. If one party dies, the other party does not eat and sleep die for love.

16


Dangerously & Fear Don't stop moving because of danger, don't stop doing because of fear. To talk about a saying in my country "Some are dead and he's alive, some are alive and he's dead" which means even if some people already died they know they died for what, and others will carry on his spirit forever, some people still alive but they have no idea they live for what.

Who do you die for; what do you die for? The meaning of your life. pDon't be confused. Think what are you going to do. Do what you going to do.

17


Concretization T

his photo shows the Place DE la Concorde. At that time, the Tour de France was being held; thus there is no private car on the road, I was standing on the Rue Royale face to the Place DE la Concorde take this photo. Describe this place, before this class when I describe this photo to others I will only say this photo shows the Place DE la Concorde; But now I will say a place the road that so many fallen leaves on it, and police block the road for Tour de France, I can feel the history when I stand the mid of the road: street light, Stone roads, and the building on both sides of the road. If to use several words to define an object such as a computer, I will use game, design tool, and writing tool, when defining an object, anything you come up with that makes you think that relate to that object those things can be the definitions of that object. If blood reminds you of apples, then you can use blood to define apples.

PURPOSE & PRACTICE


Acknowledge & Action D

ifferent people have different ideas on the same thing, and different people give you different reflect on the same thing, think the meaning of others' reflection when you recollect others' reflections in the future your understanding will be change because the time goes by and the thing you experience. No matter you handle anything to pay your 100% effort no 99%, always try your best. No matter what kinds of things you are going to do, think before doing it, always answer others' questions, always ask others questions, until find what you want. This photo was taken at the Château de Versailles in France. Louis XIV used luxury living to make the noble aristocrats obedient and easy to govern the country. When he arrived in Louis XVI, he only enjoyed the country and did not go to govern the country, which led to the decline of the country.

20


Importance of purpose T

he castle in the picture is the Chillon Castle in Switzerland. Through this photo, we can clearly understand the purpose of the castle designer, it can be seen that the castle is surrounded by water and easy to defend, which makes the castle a famous military fortress; and in the castle you can enjoy the surrounding scenery, which also makes the castle a favorite of the nobility; if you check the Chillon Castle location on the google map you will found it is located on the way from Lake Geneva to the Alps. When we are going to design something, the most important thing is to think about what we are going to create, design for whom, what does he or she want, what can this design bring, what kinds of challenges might face, what types of solutions can provide.

What I think is design cannot without purpose, just like action cannot without plan.

21


Purpose is meaning T

his image is taken from a screenshot of the final video material make me have a purpose, there is one day I am going to buy a piece of land and build a dwelling designed by myself. People without purpose always seem to be doing nothing, tangle what going to do next, no matter do what kinds of things consistently inattentive, by contrast, those people who already have a clear purpose, they know their strengths and try to use their powers to the extreme; the people equipped with purpose already have every step about the mission in their mind, thus they can always finish their mission perfectly and quickly, the people who have purpose always ask self where to improve. As far as I am concerned, the design is inseparable from ergonomics. I used to see lots of irrational and ridiculous design on the internet or even if in my life, such as some chairs will let you feel tired when sitting on it for half an hour, hit head during up stairs, if the designer can use ergonomics, these can be avoided.

22


Towards Purpose T

his photo was taken in my hometown of Nanchang, China. A city separates by a Gan River. In the evening, no matter which side of the river you stand on, you can see the night paintings of the city on the high-rise buildings on both sides of the river. These lights highlight the city’s prosperity, and when people come out for a walk at night, people are more willing to see these colorful lights compared to walking on the road illuminated by yellow street lights. In recent years, my country has spent huge sums of money to strengthen infrastructure construction. Use my hometown as an example. Talk about public facility in my hometown, opened a new bridge and tunnel across the river, opened the subway and viaduct across the city, a new high-speed rail station has been set up and a high-speed rail station is under preparation. The government should respond to the needs of the public. Every citizen has the right to tell the government what they need and what the government should do.

23


Civic life


CIwVeIC M

ichael post an idea which inspire me a lot is “CI w V e IC” who is our we and what the we include. Example of myself, right now civic life for me is a cup milk and several OREOS on a college student’s desk who writing is working on his assignment what I want right now is comfort temperature; seat on the sofa playing video games or watch movies with my friends in our apartment during the weekend, my friends and I are the we in our space; if let me design our space, our space That's the CIVIC LIFE I yearn should be cozy it can be the light’s for, Let go of the daytime Color Temp under the 3300K or the work and enjoy the night. material such as black walnut to darken the space. There are four people who seat in the café, the first person is working on his job, the second person wants to temporarily put down his work take a nap and the remaining two are a couple; those people are the we, neutralize consider their environment should be silence and romantic space, thus play some classical or light music can make the atmosphere much more quite and comfort. Moonlight, Sea, Beach, Hut, BBQ

25


Moving & Feeling

This course we came to the dance hall near by the art museum when the course started, everyone take off shoes then we were asked to walk around the classroom and think about our living environment and discuss with others as a group; what I feel is environment changes people’s way of thinking

Then we seat as a circle, instructors post some images let us find what we can get in the images. Inspire By Others

26


Improve Civic Life At the beginning of the lecture the instructor posts some question and let us discuss what can do to improve our community. started thinking about what I remembered in my hometown; about fourteen years ago, there was a peach grove and a river at my doorstep, sounds romantic

I

right? People dump garbage into the river and most of the domestic sewage has been discharged into this river, but as the population grows, the sewage discharge exceeds the capacity of the river, thus the river was polluted, even if my home is more than hundred meters from this river, but still can smell the disgusting scent, then lots of citizens have reported this to the government, and the government has allocated a large amount of funds to deal with it; the first step is to drain the water from the entire river and clean the silt from the riverbed, then build a closed drain on both sides of the river where people can walk above it, lots of citizens walk on it after dinner, this has led to a healthier community, people feel the benefits of clean rivers, so people are not littering any more. As far as I am concerned, the most important thing to make a community better is to change the habits of people in the community. Design to consider who will be the beneficiaries and listen to their opinions.

27


Value U

nlike usual, this class we came to the Dead Square, at the beginning of the course she gave us some questions for us to think about, where we get value from? what value we need or people need in a city, value to life; what is the city’s value. I only recorded the problem and did not record the answer because I think that even the same question, my answer will change in the future by accumulate with knowledge and experience. This picture of the railway was taken in the Swiss mountains. Personally speaking, we get values when we talk to each other listen others opinions; when people are having trouble doing things we come up with the solution growing own experience while helping others to know about what human‘s value, when you understand what is humans’ value, you can create and design value, because I think value and design is based on human.

28


A value people need or city need is safety(peace), people don't need to think too much about their safety; life bring value, value combine with life, people die after create and prove value.

This is the high-speed rail station that my father participated in. The topic our group choose is IDENTITY and focus on pride; I think if connect pride with value; people create value and prove the value then feel pride, give an example my father is involved in the construction of a high-speed rail station in a city with a population of nearly 10 million, after the job, my father told me that this is the feeling he is most seeking. His efforts make it easy for thousands of people to travel.

29


C!v!C L!fe Daniel’s course is as usual as unique rap combine with violin without rehearsal, violinist inspire by rapper then use violin melody to respond. Through special guests and his performances, I feel that not everyone in this world is so lucky, but they still live in this society in their own way.

He shared a video with us. At the beginning of the video, an older woman sat in a bus waiting for a bus stop without a bunker. She handed a coin to a tramp lying next to the bus station; this shows that her community is poor. After the bus, a young man reminded her of her own child. She once had a good family, but the family was broken because of the man’s irresponsibility. A mother started her life with her children; when the boy realized that his peers could get the father's love except himself, he was distraught. The mother tried to find a man to go home to the boy's father, but the ending was the same as last time.

30


Some opportunities made the boy a gang and contaminated with drugs, and the boy was arrested in prison. The mother hugged the boy while visiting the prison. No matter what the child becomes, the mother’s love for the child will not change.v

Not just in the United States, there are many single-parent families around the world who are struggling to spend every day.

31


knowledge


Knowledge for me After finishing this lesson, I started thinking about what is knowledge for me? Where I get knowledge? When our society develops rapidly, we begin to focus on the sustainability of development.

Screenshot of using knowledge.

When a learned person imposes his or her cognition on others? Cognition is based on the environment in which you live. If you force him to work in someone else living in other environments, you will lose the original positive effect or even have a negative impact. It is necessary to understand the latest dynamic situation and then combine knowledge. This will not only better disseminate knowledge but also discover misunderstandings and blind spots of existing knowledge.

33


Spread Knowledge In this lecture we mainly explored how to spread knowledge and if the original knowledge was collected. When we want to promote the existing knowledge what kinds of difficulties we will facing.

Photos from previous classes, I think this is a way to record and spread knowledge It is discussed that there are still many people around the world who are more primitive in their lifestyles. Therefore, it is necessary to build public facilities for them or to design items that can improve their quality of life base on sustainable development.

34


Ac-knowledge I

n this lesson we explored some questions about knowledge and instructor’s assistant tell us some knowledge about endangered animals. Liz asked us to take notes with colored pens because it would be more efficient How we get our knowledge from others? There is a saying “There must be one out of three who can be your teacher.” Which means other people’s words and deeds must have places worth learning. We must learn to discover the strengths of others; your idea is good but the next second is “mine”. What knowledge do we need to act together while differing in fundamental? The focus is on having common interests and goals. In order to be able to achieve better and faster, it will require diversified knowledge assistance; people from different fields work together to achieve the goal. Saving animals also needs support from all parties, such as the government’s enactment laws, the theoretical support of experts, the actions of volunteers, and financial assistance from foundations.

35


KNOW Still Daniel with his Violin. Divided two students as a group, student listen and answer.

My father wants me know I am a boy not girl, I am a student study is necessary for me, I am a child of my parents.

I think I know the love from my parents but I don’t, I think I know people around me but I don’t, I think I know myself but I don’t.

I know my strength, below the average, so I will be more cautious when I do things. When I get a new knowledge, I ask myself whether this knowledge is useful to me and whether I really have the knowledge.

36


Well of Wisdom Today’s lecture Maria guide us to know about the extend part of knowledge Ways of knowing: Parents, Groups, Teacher… … Students separate as groups to discuss the topic; I notice that the all people have in common are get knowledge from parents. When we were children, we didn’t have enough experience, we couldn’t judge and know things that were unfamiliar. Teamwork, everyone uses their strengths to work with other team members, in the process people usually accumulate a lot of experience. Experience can be wisdom. There’s a saying “Compare with read thousands book you will get more if you travel thousands of miles”, which means feelings and experiences are more effective than acquiring knowledge directly. Knowledge originates from experiences and attempts. Whatever method it takes from the outside world, it contributes to the formation of the current personality. This also determines the way of thinking, the criteria for judgment and acceptance.
