    How I Miss the Theatre…

    by

    For Thursday’s daily create, I was tasked with a photo of the ceiling. My ceiling at home is fairly bland, but I was reminded of this photo I took while seeing the Broadway musical Wicked in D.C.! It was more beautiful in person, the photo I shared doesn’t do it justice.

    Radio Show Week 1: The Search for Inspiration

    by

    My group for the radio show project consists of myself, Madeline, Maddy (Dede), and Rosemary. We are doing a show on childhood memories. Once we had established our group, we made a group chat and had a zoom meeting on Sunday afternoon to divvy out jobs and discuss ideas for our individual segments of the […]

    Save the Turtles

    by

    For my second audio assignment this week, I created this commercial for our radio show. I used the 80’s commercial assignment, but bent it to fit a commercial that would go with the story I am sharing on the show. I used BandLab to create this commercial, and used sounds from BBC’s sound effect library. […]

    A Mission on Mars

    by

    For Tuesday’s daily create, I was tasked with putting a person on Mars! I decided to make this two ways. For the first, I used the Powerpuff Yourself website to create an avatar for myself and my boyfriend. I downloaded these and cropped them using the android photo editing app that came preinstalled on my […]

    Radio Bumper 2.0

    by

    For the upcoming radio show project, I created this bumper using Audacity. It may sound familiar, I used the same music as I did for my first bumper that I made for ds106 radio! Because our idea was inspired by a Disney channel bit, I thought the upbeat, exciting music fit our idea, as well […]

    Are You Ready for Some Memories?

    by

    Our group is excited to share some childhood memories with you all for our radio show project. The idea was inspired by a bit on Disney Channel where stars would share important memories and time in their lives with the audience. Our show will be called Stories of our Stories: A Trip Down Memory Lane. […]

    Week 6: A Journey into Design

    by

    This week was interesting to say the least. I enjoyed the assignments, but I had computer troubles part way through. That definitely made things tricky. Thank goodness I have a more tech savvy brother. The article I read for my reflection was really inspiring going into this week. The design blitz I worked on throughout […]

    Design blitz

    by

    I’m immunodeficient, so I didn’t go out and take pictures this week. In fact, I didn’t leave my house at all. However, I did research and looked for examples of different designs. Sign 1 makes good use of balance. Because everything revolves around the circular shape, the eye naturally follows. Dominance is also used. The […]

    A Struggle in My Story

    by

    For my final assignment this week, I chose to go a more personal route. In November 2018, I woke up unable to feel half of my face. I still had complete muscle control with no sinking, so we knew it wasn’t a stroke. I had been perfectly healthy all my life, so this came as […]

    Apocalypse

    by

    As a sci-fi/fantasy fan, an apocalyptic world is one I a familiar with. From anarchy and rebellion to the end of the world itself, it is a concept that drives many dystopian or thriller type novels and shows. The prompt asked me to use a certain hero creator to make a sci-fi protagonist and edit […]

    Who was the true hero?

    by

    I chose to do the assignment True Lies from the assignment bank. This assignment is meant to glorify the heroism of a character. I chose to do this as a ranking of characters in Lord of the Rings. The graphic below glorifies the character I feel was most heroic, and well… slanders on my least […]

    Quote Gallery

    by

    This assignment required me to pick a movie quote and edit it over and image. I went through this one really quick, so I made multiple! I used the collage maker app on my phone (was having computer problems) and came up with these! The video of how I worked in the collage maker is […]

    Design Reflection

    by

    While reading “A Kid’s Guide to Graphic Design” the following quote stuck with me… “It doesn’t occur to most people that everything is designed — that every building and everything they touch in the world is designed,” Bill Moggridge I know this was the first line of the article, but it made me think. The […]

    Week 5: Do you hear what I hear?

    by

    All assignments linked at bottom of post This week we explored the world of audio. The assignments seemed simple enough, but they certainly had a fair bit of work. There are lots of little steps in audio that I overlooked. Therefore, it took me longer than I thought it would. This wasn’t helped by me […]

    Would you like some tea?

    by

    For my sound effect story, I made a cup of tea on a snowy day. Tea is one of my favorite hot drinks, and I drink it religiously! I downloaded sounds from the BBC sound effect site and layered them into audacity. It was very simple, but rather tedious as it involved a fair bit […]

    Jordan Quartet

    by

    I chose to do the a capella assignment because I am a vocalist and love music. Growing up my parent’s got me piano lessons. They also paid for me to be in a community choir. Needless to say, music and my connection to it are a huge part of my story. Because of this, soundtracks […]

    Breathe in, breathe out

    by

    For one of my assignments this week, I chose to make a relaxing white noise sound that you can play on loop. Birds or crickets are my preferred white noise, so that’s what I used. I used BBC’s sound effects archive to download my sounds. I chose one long, repetitive sound to be my base. […]

    Radio Bumper!

    by

    Here is my radio bumper! I downloaded a free sound cloud song (linked below). And use audacity to crop it. Then, I created a new recording and said my introduction for the radio station. Once I had that recording timed/placed where I wanted it I selected the section before the intro and had it fade […]

    Save the Unicorns!

    by

    My third daily create this week was to edit an animal into a photo of a bridge. Here was my take! Also, I love these bridges designed to help wildlife cross roads safely. I think it would be neat to make these more common in our infrastructure systems. Megan commented asking how I managed to […]

    Brainstorm

    by

    This week has certainly helped jog creativity for our midterm project. My mind is swirling with ideas, and they don’t all fit together. There are lots of great topics. We could share a story, which would be right up the alley of our theme. We could share interests and try to present our passions in […]

    Live Tweet Along

    by

    On Wednesday night I slid in bed and tuned into DS106 radio. The broadcast they shared was about different natural relationships between large trees, springtails, and fungus. It sounds weird, I know. However, I was very drawn into this science lesson. The use of sound effects was excellent, and I really enjoyed how the creator […]

    Audio Reflection

    by

    In the podcast episode “Moon Graffiti” I found the sounds used powerful and chilling. The story created is a solemn one, but the performances of the voice actors sold it. Furthermore, the realistic sounds used when the shuttle crashed made me jump a bit, and the radio sounds created a more authentic experience. When Edward […]

    My Greatest Friend and Worst Enemy

    by

    Spoiler alert… It’s myself. For this assignment, the instructions say to set up the panorama affect on your phone and move to be in your picture multiple times. I had my mom hold my phone for the panorama shot. Once the frame was completely off me, I ran around the opposite way of where she […]
