    The sky was orange. The water dark. The wooden bridge creaked. I heard the foot steps, I didn’t dare turn around. I couldn’t help but scream…. for ever.

    Torture? Screaming for entirety seems like torture to me.. In Edvard Munch’s “The Scream” he captured this very idea:

    The human forms …

    Text + Movment = More Meaning?


    What did Descartes say again? “I am therefore I think?”, no that’s not right. That’s how I like to think though. I am here so I think! It’s probably my favorite pass time. I couldn’t think of a better way to spend my time than thinking about hard problems. Right …

    The Worst Criminal Ever…


    I arrived at home one fateful night to find my living room in a complete mess:

    I was horrified! At first I thought it must have been a burglar, however after further investigation there was nothing missing. Many valuable items were strewn across the floor, but nothing taken. This was …

    Was that a barcode?


    To what point can an object be distorted while still being the same object? To what point can a barcode be transformed while keeping its stored information intact? Ah these age old questions. What does a barcode represent anyway? No one really cares about how it looks visually anyway. They …

    What movie is this?


    Once upon a time there was a movie that was completely characterized  by the follow three symbols:

    Ten points to anyone who is able to guess what the movie is!

    I created these using Adobe Flash. I used it because it is something I am familiar with. As soon as …

    Week 1 Reflection

    1. Commentary on Setting Up your Domain and Social media

    Setting up my blog did not go well. I opted to use my current domain instead of using the Domain of One’s Own, mainly because I thought to myself, I’m a Computer Science Major I can handle this. I had …

    What is this monster?


    This snake-rabbit was created for this visual assignment. I thought the premise of this assignment was really cool. I always jump at the opportunity to make funky images in Photoshop, so this assignment was probably the most fun I have had in the class so far!

    For the source images …

    Reflections of a Safari


    Here is my Photo Safari. Looking at the requirements for the photo safari was very daunting at first. I honestly didn’t know if would be possible to pull of! I delayed doing it all of this week, because I think I was apprehensive about actually doing it. Well today …

    There’s a Difference?


    What is the main difference between these photos?

    This is my interpretation of this assignment.

    It took me along while to come up with a nice idea for what I could do that would be subtle, yet easy enough to spot. When creating this piece I was constrained to items …

    My very own Spubble..


    When creating this “Supple” I was inspired by the idea of a “meta speech bubble”. The speech bubble is meta, in that it describes itself. More than that though, the speech bubble exists to express how I can see a speech bubble, but what speech bubble am I seeing? The …

    My Experiences With Photography


    When I was a junior in high school I took a photography class. To be honest I only took it cause my then girlfriend was also in that class, although I really enjoyed the class in the end. One of the main reasons was my girlfriend had one of those …

    Just kidding, that’s not really how I look… but hopefully you knew that. I created this masterpiece in photoshop using a selfie I took in the library. I first removed the background, and …
