    sound project 1

    I really wasn’t sure what I wanted to do with this project, so I basically just collected various sounds with my phone recorder for a few weeks. I just recorded several sounds from my life for about a week and a half trying to figure out what to do. I just played around with Audacity… Continue reading →

    final project

    I love Game of Thrones, it’s a great show with a great cast. It’s a television adaptation of A Song of Fire and Ice, George R.R. Martin’s medieval fantasy novel series. I’ve used this fantastic map found on the ASOFI wiki to illustrate locations in the series.

    Don’t even bother patting yourself on the back for donating to Invisible Children

    In light of the meteoric popularity of Invisible Children, I find myself shaking with rage. Stop joining charity bandwagons to make yourself feel better about the countless injustices in the world that we are lucky enough not to face. Read about these things everyday, write your government officials once a week, participate in charities like… Continue reading →

    a splash of coconut

    I decided to tinker with the splash the color assignment for this post. I chose an old photo of my sister from a trip to Belize we went on last year.

    a quote I believe should be read by every aspiring artist

    “Nothing is original. Steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination. Devour old films, new films, books, paintings, photographs, poems, dreams, random conversations, architecture, bridges, street signs, trees, clouds, bodies of water, light and shadows. Select only things to steal from that speak directly to your soul. If you do this, your… Continue reading →

    my webstory!

    I was really inspired by the readings and Larry Lessig, and it made me want to do a piece that was in the vein of yellow journalism and propaganda. My mother, my sister, and I like to tell ridiculous stories the way I narrated the video.

    web 2.0

    The Internet has clearly evolved from what was simply text, MIDI, and PNG images to a totally different, much more interactive interface. Sharing on the web has become so much more easier, and it has become far easier to create via the web. Creative Commons feeds into how easy it has become to create via… Continue reading →

    Gardner Campbell

    In his essay, “A Personal Cyberinfrastructure”, Gardner Campbell raises the point that most students know how to make use of the internet, but are not aware of how it truly works. Myself included, I feel that this lack of how the web really works does cripple us as a generation. I have been using the Internet since… Continue reading →
