    The sky was orange. The water dark. The wooden bridge creaked. I heard the foot steps, I didn’t dare turn around. I couldn’t help but scream…. for ever. Torture? Screaming for entirety seems like torture to me.. In Edvard Munch’s “The Scream” he captured this very idea: The human forms in the picture have always... Read more »

    Text + Movment = More Meaning?

    What did Descartes say again? “I am therefore I think?”, no that’s not right. That’s how I like to think though. I am here so I think! It’s probably my favorite pass time. I couldn’t think of a better way to spend my time than thinking about hard problems. Right now for me its the... Read more »

    The Worst Criminal Ever…

    I arrived at home one fateful night to find my living room in a complete mess: I was horrified! At first I thought it must have been a burglar, however after further investigation there was nothing missing. Many valuable items were strewn across the floor, but nothing taken. This was an inside job. It had... Read more »

    Was that a barcode?

    To what point can an object be distorted while still being the same object? To what point can a barcode be transformed while keeping its stored information intact? Ah these age old questions. What does a barcode represent anyway? No one really cares about how it looks visually anyway. They only care about the information stored... Read more »

    My ideal day…!

    Once in a while you just have a really really good day. What is my ideal day? Its really hard to say. I thought about it for a long time. The next question I thought about for a long time was who is my best friend? Its very hard to decide, so I eventually decided... Read more »

    What movie is this?

    Once upon a time there was a movie that was completely characterized  by the follow three symbols: Ten points to anyone who is able to guess what the movie is! I created these using Adobe Flash. I used it because it is something I am familiar with. As soon as I saw this assignment, I... Read more »

    Week 1 Reflection

    1. Commentary on Setting Up your Domain and Social media Setting up my blog did not go well. I opted to use my current domain instead of using the Domain of One’s Own, mainly because I thought to myself, I’m a Computer Science Major I can handle this. I had run a WordPress blog on...

    What is this monster?

    This snake-rabbit was created for this visual assignment. I thought the premise of this assignment was really cool. I always jump at the opportunity to make funky images in Photoshop, so this assignment was probably the most fun I have had in the class so far! For the source images I used the website called...

    Reflections of a Safari

    Here is my Photo Safari. Looking at the requirements for the photo safari was very daunting at first. I honestly didn’t know if would be possible to pull of! I delayed doing it all of this week, because I think I was apprehensive about actually doing it. Well today was the day! By the time... Read more »

    There’s a Difference?

    What is the main difference between these photos? This is my interpretation of this assignment. It took me along while to come up with a nice idea for what I could do that would be subtle, yet easy enough to spot. When creating this piece I was constrained to items on my desk. I thought...

    Frozen Eagle Bridge

    by When creating this image my initial goal was to try and make the Eagle Bridge look more like a castle. I had hoped that tweaking the colors (making the photo more gray), however it wasn’t turning out very well so I decided to look for a color combination that was pleasing to the eyes.... Read more »

    My very own Spubble..

    When creating this “Supple” I was inspired by the idea of a “meta speech bubble”. The speech bubble is meta, in that it describes itself. More than that though, the speech bubble exists to express how I can see a speech bubble, but what speech bubble am I seeing? The one expressing that I can... Read more »

    My Experiences With Photography

    When I was a junior in high school I took a photography class. To be honest I only took it cause my then girlfriend was also in that class, although I really enjoyed the class in the end. One of the main reasons was my girlfriend had one of those really fancy $600 DSLR cameras.... Read more »

    Dear DS106

    I am very excited to begin this course! To get started here is a picture of me: Just kidding, that’s not really how I look… but hopefully you knew that. I created this masterpiece in photoshop using a selfie I took in the library. I first removed the background, and then I used the liquefy... Read more »
