    Reading Response: How Images Think?


    I found Ron Burnett’s How Images Think a little hard to read. For me it was a bit dense and wordy and took me a while to dissect Burnett’s main points, especially through what I found to be somewhat flowery prose.

    What caught my eye, however, was this question Burnett …

    Weekly Summary?


    This week I chose to do an audio create for ambient noise, and recorded what it’s like going through the maze that is my house; and I interviewed my housemate Nina and her sister about one of their favorite childhood memories. Those, and my audio project interviews, are all …

    Reading Response: The Zen of Listening


    In Shafir’s The Zen of Listening, one quote really stood out to me: “Listening.. is centripetal; it it pulls you into the world. Looking is centrifugal; it separates you from the world.”

    When I first read this line I was quick to disagree. But as I thought about it more, …

    If you could be any pastry in the world, which would you be?

    Reading Response: Notes on Camp


    Susan Sontag’s “Notes on Camp” was one of my favorite readings so far. I’m a huge, huge fan of campy stuff, but never realized that it had enough of a presence to warrant academic reflections on it.

    I found Sontag’s essay interesting first because I never realized that …

    The Week in Review


    I just registered for this class so I had a lot of catching up to do, but I’m enjoying the daily creates as well as the opportunity to use tumblr outside of reblogging pictures of Naya Rivera and Cher Horowitz. Apologies to my (very few) followers whose dashboards have been …
