    sound project 1


    I really wasn’t sure what I wanted to do with this project, so I basically just collected various sounds with my phone recorder for a few weeks.
    I just recorded several sounds from my life for about a week and a half trying to figure out what to do.

    final project


    I love Game of Thrones, it’s a great show with a great cast. It’s a television adaptation of A Song of Fire and Ice, George R.R. Martin’s medieval fantasy novel series.

    A film that I can’t stop thinking about lately


    An official poster for the film. The composition is stunning.

    I can’t get Thirst (2009) by Park Chan-wook out of my mind. I haven’t watched it since late August last summer, and the movie still feels fresh in my thoughts. The American title is so fitting for the theme, as …

    a quote I believe should be read by every aspiring artist


    “Nothing is original. Steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination. Devour old films, new films, books, paintings, photographs, poems, dreams, random conversations, architecture, bridges, street signs, trees, clouds, bodies of water, light and shadows. Select only things to steal from that speak directly to your soul. …

    my webstory!


    I was really inspired by the readings and Larry Lessig, and it made me want to do a piece that was in the vein of yellow journalism and propaganda. My mother, my sister, and I like to tell ridiculous stories the way I narrated the video. …

    web 2.0


    The Internet has clearly evolved from what was simply text, MIDI, and PNG images to a totally different, much more interactive interface. Sharing on the web has become so much more easier, and it has become far easier to create via the web. Creative Commons feeds into how easy it …

    Gardner Campbell


    In his essay, “A Personal Cyberinfrastructure”, Gardner Campbell raises the point that most students know how to make use of the internet, but are not aware of how it truly works. Myself included, I feel that this lack of how the web really works does cripple us as a generation. …
