    Weekly Summery #12

    This week was long, I’ve been up past midnight every day of the week doing something. While eating breakfast before going to sleep in the morning, I’ve watched an episode or two of the Office, a great comedy show. I spent nearly 4 hours getting the internal province reader for my massive mega-converter Imperator:Rome to […]

    Remix 2: Warning Label Savanna

    The warning label was from my previous assignment, making fun of those medical commercials with the strange side effects using Valve’s Portal Gun from the Portal series of videogames. We were to remix it with Savanna, but it was not descriptive in what we were to do, so I put a savanna in the background […]

    Weekly Summary

    Week Twelve

    It’s time to buckle up as the craziness has only just begun! This week was a little slower in my academic world, which was much appreciated – especially as we move into the final weeks of classes (SAY WHAT!?!)! I can’t believe our semester is almost over. It has been quite possibly the craziest one […]

    I, unfortunately, was not able to participate this week. I’ve been working crazy 80+ hour weeks lately and I think all of the exhaustion and stress is catching up to me. However, I was able to finish some assignments. I feel bad. But, here it goe...

    Mashup assignment Not sure if this was one of the mashup assignments…. So, I taught myself how to mask a picture/video. I’m not that good but I did something simple. It was actually fun to do and I did so many of them as practice. This technique wasn’t bad, I had trouble changing the video Read More

    week twelve

    This week was a lot easier than the past two weeks, which I’m super thankful for. I’ll start by talking about my mashups! So for the first mashup, I combined an audio I created weeks ago and added video clips to it to make a sort of music video/video aesthetic. The audio is the sound of rain with piano, meant to be relaxing. It’s the type of audio I would listen to while reading or writing, or even studying. I really like all the clips I put together and the overall general aesthetic of the video I wanted was to create was a rainy autumn day.  The second mashup I created was an 80s Movie Scene. I used the ending scene from The Breakfast Club and the boombox scene from Say Anything. I edited it using PicsArt from my phone and then emailed it to myself. I’m pretty happy with how it turned out, I think both the pictures fit well together!  I also did an Emoji Mashup, in which I took a picture of my sister imitating her favorite emoji. This assignment was rated 4 stars in the course but I felt it was really worth only two, so I ended up doing the video/audio mashup afterward since I felt the Emoji mashup and 80s scene mash-up weren’t really worth the 8 stars […]

    remixed poetry art

    I sort of kept to the 80’s theme by including a poet who was around in the 80’s! Charles Bukowski is a German-American writer. I’ve seen a lot of his poems and short quotes on Pinterest and I love his writing. It’s very raw and straight forward, and he talks a lot about serious topics, such as alcoholism, poverty, and relationship issues.  The remix I chose was to do an assignment that you wouldn’t want your parents to see (parental advisory card). I had already created poetry art a few weeks ago and it was one of my favorite things I did, so I chose to go with that similar assignment. I tried to keep to the similar minimalistic theme as my previous poetry art assignment. I kept the pinks and greens of the paintbrush strokes and wanted to keep the elements of the bottle and hands similar to the lines I created around the person in that picture.  I found the quote and pictures on Pinterest and edited it using Canva, instead of through PicsArt like I did originally. I edited the images in Canva using an effect called “distorted”. I think using this effect provides a visualization of how someone’s reality is distorted when they drink or take drugs, and especially when they do both at the same time. The background I […]
