    The story I wanted to share with the world was about living in the present moment. I as well as many people through the pandemic have been through many changes and transitions in the past few years, many of which I did not expect. It taught me to cherish the good as well as the […]

    week eleven summary

    This week, I completed 10 stars of video assignments. I did the video assignment and the time lapse assignment. I really liked the time lapse assignment and how you can see the shadows moving across the the woods as the sun goes down. I liked how creative all of the video assignment prompts were this […]

    week ten summary!

    This week was busy! I did a video essay on a movie scene to incorporate some elements we learned this week. For my ten stars of video assignments, I made a video poem where I read a poem over a movie scene, and worked this assignment in a different way into the software angel assignment, […]

    project ideas round two

    I really liked Kendra’s idea of making a podcast about the different areas of creativity you can develop in ds106. I think it would be interesting to talk through some of the skills learned and medias we used in class, and this would be a great way to share with prospective students what they can […]

    For this assignment, I combined this Software Angel assignment: “For this assignment, you have to pay it forward SOFTWARE EDITION. In this class, we’ve had to use a lot of softwares to complete many assignments, so pick one that you love using and make a quick video for it. This way, other DS106 students in […]

    video poem

    Have a favorite poem? Record yourself reading out loud and set it to a related video (favorite episode clips or movie clips, animate something, the choice is yours!) For this assignment, I chose the poem, “I am too alone” by Rainer Rilke which I found through a novel I read. And I used a […]

    video essay

    Here is my video essay! I used a scene from the Titanic. I used to make this video, which is free and not too complicated to learn how to use. It was interesting to try to find some of the techniques in this scene.

    week nine summary

    This week, I reworked some old assignments, adding to them and redoing them. I enjoyed revisiting them! I reflected on listening to The Undergraduate Monster Wash on ds106 radio and my group’s own radio show. It was so interesting to hear other groups’ shows! I connected three Daily Creates into a story. This was a […]

    final project ideas

    I was not expecting it to be so hard to brainstorm ideas. There are so many directions we could take the project! An idea I’ve been thinking about that keeps with our Bob Ross theme is maybe recreating one of his paintings following one of his videos. I want it to be a painting that […]

    connected daily creates

    I had the weirdest dream last night: I woke up to my phone ringing, but couldn’t find it anywhere, so I had to enlist the help of superhero. He came to the rescue and found my phone under my pillow. When I picked up the phone, it wasn’t a person on the other end – […]

    radio show reflections

    Yesterday I listened to The Undergraduate Monster Wash radio show on ds106 radio. I really enjoyed this show! The group used consistent sound effects and background music throughout to really set the scene and add a spooky theme to the stories they were telling. The voice acting in each story also added to how well […]

    reworked assignments

    This week, I looked through some of my old assignments to see which ones I wanted to rework. The first one I picked was my contradiction creation assignment. I really liked this assignment the first time around and wanted to add to it. It was about creating a graphic that conveys a feeling or theme […]

    week eight summary

    This week has been short but definitely very busy. My group met on zoom Wednesday after Fall break to record our radio show. Zoom was definitely a struggle to have all everyone’s audio come through clearly, but we did the best we could since we were not able to meet in person since most of […]

    This week was busy! We got into groups, and started planning our radio show project. We met on the voice channel in discord and talked through ideas, made plans, and split up the work.

    This week, my group, formed and started talking on our Discord server. I joined the group a little late, and got caught up about the idea for our project: to recreate an old episode of the Roy Rogers Show. We started working on a google doc to keep track of our ideas and work. We […]

    radio show logo!

    I made a logo for my group’s radio show! I used Canva to make it, by picking a logo template that I thought would fit our theme. First, I looked up pictures of advertisements for the actual Roy Rogers Show to get ideas for the design and color scheme. Since there were many pictures of […]

    design blitz

    I thought it would be a challenge to try to find these design elements in one area, so most of these pictures were taken in Curitiba! Minimalism/Use of Space The design here is very minimal, with very few objects crowding the space. I think it accomplishes what it needs to – it is an open […]

    week six summary!

    This week I learned a lot about design. I thought the Stranger Things title sequence video was specifically interesting. I also wrote about my thoughts on the Brain Pickings article here. The first assignment I completed was the DesignBlitz. I tried to find the design elements as much as I could in one area, which […]

    design thoughts

    This article really got me thinking about how much of what I see on a day to day basis has been designed by someone, like street signs, posters, food packaging, etc. It’s something that can easily be overlooked. People put their creativity and effort into designing these common things around us. I also thought it […]
