    Let Me Pick Your Brain About Design

    by

    I really enjoyed reading the article about graphic design. I loved seeing some of the old school product designs and some cool newer-aged designs. It was really cool to also read about the author of the book that the article is based on. I loved how they discussed that the …

    One of the assignments from the assignment bank this week was to find a quote from our favorite movie and place it over an image from that movie. I chose the movie/musical Hairspray, because for as long as I can remember I have been OBSESSED with this movie. I love …

    Word Cloud

    by

    One of the assignments from the assignment bank this week was to create a word cloud describing our experiences with DS106. I’m glad that the three biggest words are challenging, rewarding, and engaging because they are the three words that I think they perfectly describe my thoughts for this class. …

    The 5th Installment of Summaries

    by

    This week was more difficult for me than previous weeks. I think audio media is the thing I am least comfortable with and the section I was dreading the most. It took a lot more time this week to complete these tasks, and if I’m being honest, dont think the …

    Live Tweeting

    by

    This was my first time live tweeting while listening to something. The story itself was super creepy and kind of made me question my own dreams and why they happen. The sounds in this story were so unique to the time period, from the static of the microphone, to the …

    Just Working Things

    When thinking about what my daily life sounds like, I though a lot about my work life. I work retail and getting up and going to work is a DRAG, but ya know, gotta get that $$. So, I thought it would be funny to make a shortened version of …

    Ted Talk

    by

    For my third assignment for this week, I chose to do a Ted Talk. The assignment was to listen to the way the speaker emphasized words and pauses, and try to recreate it using his speech. I’m always super nervous when it comes to public speaking, so this was definitely …

    When ~Corona~ Ends

    by

    In the assignment bank this week, there was an assignment to change a rap song lyrics to post apocalyptic lyrics. I got the idea to change the “post apocalyptic” part to something Covid-19 related. This song came on the radio a few months ago and I substituted “September” with “Corona” …

    Radio Bumper

    Here is my radio bumper for ds106 radio! It was definitely a little strange making this. I tried to make my voice as smooth as possible (like most radio dj’s) but tried to make it fun and upbeat!…

    Sound and Stories

    by

    After listening to Moon Grafiti, it is evident what a key role sound plays in our ability to visualize information. Sound has the ability to set moods and create emotions. When listening to Moon Grafiti, I felt like I was there, in that moment, listening to them. The sound was …

    Where I live is SUPER boring. I live on a pretty busy road so there’s no where I can really walk to take pictures and I was unable to devote the time this week to get out to a park due to my work and school schedule. So, with that …

    You’re Doing It Wrong

    For as many times as I say this phrase, I don’t have a lot of pictures to laugh at or reference when I think about this sentence. But, I was able to dig up a super old photo of a carseat strapped to the top of a van in the …

    Marine in Wonderland

    by

    Pictured below is my best friend, Marine. This assignment was to make something seem out of proportion. For some reason, my mind immediately went to the Smurfs (idk why because I haven’t seen or thought of Smurfs in years…) so I wanted to incorporate a mushroom for some reason. I …

    Visual Storytelling

    When it comes to capturing a picture, I tend to get lost in the moment and forget to capture an image to remember it by. I find myself looking back on a day and wishing I had captured something to remember it by. Most of my pictures in my phone …
