    Inspire 4


    http://inspire.ds106.us/for-sale-one-wired-greek-2/ The picture inspires me to rethink who I am as a person and who I want to truly become. The barcode that codes with the unknown person speaks for itself. We all are unique and have an identity of ourselves. How we identify our self is up to us.…

    Radio Listen


    The story in the radio was interesting and was relative to history seeing that women working back then was a problem. The sound they used gave affect towards their subject matter and emphasized their theme. Overlapping sound made the radio more interesting to listen to. The radio show flowed well. …

    Weekly Summary #5


    I learned a lot about the principals of design with Vignelli. It is interesting that even though his works are before the era of technology , a lot in what he does still applies. I believe he has such a great understanding because he doesn’t have a machine doing the …

    Copy Right Thoughts


    I believe when a person remixes or recreate what was already created, the creator should be credited. Sometimes it’s hard to tell what’s a copy and where to define plagiarism. Creative commons seems to be a good way to allow owners to releases their product.  Sometimes I wonder if two …

    Read and Reflect on The Vignelli Canon


    Semantics. He explains to use that we have to find meaning in our work. Some times it’s hard to find meaning and inspiration. That’s only the case when I’m given something to work on. I feel that inspiration is something a person comes up with on their own, and not …

    Think about Audio Storytelling: Reading


    “The Ambience of Film Noir- Soundscapes, Design and Mood” Through reading this I found several things in relation to film noir. Sound plays a heavy role in film noir by expressing mood to the viewer and creating such emotions through what you hear. Without certain sounds the viewer wouldn’t be …

    Weekly Summary #3


    This week was a good week. I’m starting to see a recurrence in theme towards Noir in regards to the films and readings. When it comes to romance there seems be a love triangle which follows along with jealousy and drama. If there’s a murder in the movie it’s nearly …

    Reflect on Noir and Visual Storytelling


    The films I watched were Killer’s Kiss and The Hitch-Hiker. Both I found to emphasize the Noir style quite well. I did find that The Hitch-Hiker to be more brutal. Killer’s Kiss was the obvious love-hate kind of deal that seems to be showing up quite often in the readings. …

    The Wild Party by Joseph Moncure March


    This reading reminded me a little about The Postman Always Rings Twice. There was love, affair, hurt, and cruelty. I figured death was coming to either Queenie or Burr.
