It’s always kind of hard choosing a selective amount of projects or anything out of a larger collective bunch, but after some further deliberation and decision-making, I decided the 4 projects I would like to work on this upcoming week in DS106:
1. On This Day: This design project was simply too tempting to pass on, and knowing and using google for so many years, it just felt right. I know I’m gonna have fun with this one.
2. The Big Caption: Another design project I chose, this seemed very interesting and thought-provoking. As I get to choose a large news-affiliated photo from the newspaper, I add a message of my own. This should make for a great project.
3. The Four Icon Challenge: This visual project seems simple, but I would want it to be meaningful. To break down something so long into 4 small, intricate icons is using your sense of symbolism and a project I would really to partake in.
4. Newspaper Blackout Poetry: A visual project that caught my attention as soon as I saw it. I imagined myself working on this and the enjoyment, and results I would have and could come up with doing this, and it seemed like a great idea.
These projects could be challenging, but my main objective is too see what I can come up with, and what I could ultimately learn. These should keep me busy this week, and I’ll be sure to post my progress and finished pieces right here for you guys to see. Wish me luck, and good luck to you guys as well! Peace!
