    Design Reflection


    Design is a very interesting concept. It’s all around us. So much so that we even notice it. The late Bill Moggridge once stated that it doesn’t occur to most people that everything is designed — that every building and everything they touch in the world is designed. I find …

    This week with Audio…


    I enjoyed listening to Emily’s conversation with herself as Kate and a chipmunk was pretty cool.

    This Week with Audio

    Reflection on “Moon Graffiti”

    Moon Graffiti was a great audio piece. The way the audio was put together made me feel as though I was with Neil Armstrong and Edwin Aldrin while they were on their journey. The radio broadcasting is very clear and resembles the sounds that you would hear in movies. If…
