As Per the Universities Website:

 

LIU POST Campus Writing Center


Welcome to the Writing Center. Writing is a powerful tool not only for communicating existing ideas but also for discovering new ones. The Writing Center is staffed by trained undergraduate and graduate students who work collaboratively with LIU Post students on a one-to-one basis to help them develop the strongest texts possible. Students come to the Writing Center because all writers can improve their writing through feedback. We can help you to brainstorm, plan, edit, revise and proofread your texts. In short, we can collaborate with you on any work in progress.

We are located in Humanities Hall, Room 223

STAFF

Writing Assistants are graduate students and upper-level undergraduates currently enrolled at LIU Post. They have been trained to help you develop the thinking and writing strategies that work best for you. They are people who enjoy writing and who understand that writing works differently for everyone. Writing Assistants will help you consider a variety of important questions about your writing, including the audience for and purpose of your text, as well as how to revise your writing with audience and purpose in mind.

“Tango” by Zbigniew Rybczyński  – 1980.

Tango is set in one room with an increasing number and series of interesting characters that loop in and out of the composition over and over.

Can you stop watching? Tango won The Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film in 1983.

Questions to ponder and react to:

Tango is considered a “short animated film”, but is this a film? How would you describe it in 2018?

How would you describe both pieces technically? The year they were made plays a role for sure. Or does it?

What did you think of “Tango” and “Les Grands Ensembles” as a whole?

What is your interpretation of each piece? What is the artist communicating?

Does the art work(s) induce personal reflection in anyway? If so please share.

Do you find connections between these two works of Media Art? If so, please describe?
