    Final Project, 80’s remix


    This final project was interesting to make, early on I did have copyright concerns, but after those were resolved it was smooth sailing. Lewis, Kyle, Lilian, James, and I switched to using Skype for our meetings after it was discovered that Zoom was insecure and potentially harmful to use, and …

    Final Project Plan


    I’m planning that the final project will be a history documentary about an alternate dystopian future caused by the Coronavirus, where I’ll be combining video, images, and audio together to paint the future history of the geopolitical ramifications of a Coronavirus which rapidly mutates out of control, becomes significantly more …

    Assignment Bank Website Fusion: OANUMW


    I’ve fused together the news website One America News with the home webpage for the University of Mary Washington, to create the wonderful abomination One America News of the University of Mary Washington (OANUMW). The combined website has University of Mary Washington’s main navigation bar and yellow notice at the …

    Weekly Summery #12


    This week was long, I’ve been up past midnight every day of the week doing something. While eating breakfast before going to sleep in the morning, I’ve watched an episode or two of the Office, a great comedy show. I spent nearly 4 hours getting the internal province reader for …

    Remix 2: Warning Label Savanna


    The warning label was from my previous assignment, making fun of those medical commercials with the strange side effects using Valve’s Portal Gun from the Portal series of videogames. We were to remix it with Savanna, but it was not descriptive in what we were to do, so I put …

    Color Changer Remix: Infomercial


    The original assignment was to change the colors, but the remix was to add a bad infomercial feeling to it. I figured the best way to do so was to make this feel like an unusual advertisement, and since the colors changed, I made it a color changer, along with …

    Assignment Bank: Superhuman In Everyday Life


    If I were given any super power, mine would be to completely warp and bend reality to my will. Coronavirus could be instantly eliminated with a single thought, or the world hunger could be wiped out with a snap of the fingers. After solving these problems, I’d likely retreat into …

    Weekly Summery #11


    This week was alright, except for the homework, but less then I imagined. The dreaded writing assignment for my programming class, unlike the other two 4 page papers, was posting answers to 6 simple questions, and my Deep Learning Neural Network class didn’t have us write any code at all. …

    More ideas for future projects


    I enjoyed my group’s project of doing a documentary on the aftershock of the epidemic. Perhaps we could do something similar, and showcase how we’re handling the epidemic, and not being able to go outdoors, since this current issue effects everybody in the country and we can all relate to …

    Post Coronavirus Documentary Progress


    My group had met together online using Zoom on Monday at 5:00 pm EST to discuss the video format for the project. Since it was a documentary, we decided to do a documentary format by having Lilian, Lewis, Kyle, and myself record and submit footage of ourselves talking to the …

    Weekly Summery #10


    Monday and Tuesday were pretty quiet, I avoided communication with most people, made food from supplies in the house, and remained safe from the virus. On Wednesday I was up until midnight working on homework. On Friday I mowed the lawn, did a paper for my history class, and stayed …

    Listening to the 80’s Crime Radio Show and Reflection


    This show felt professional, well researched, well documented, greatly presented, and intriguing. The one psychopath who had cut off men’s genitalia, played with the corpses, and severed the heads off of the bodies was interesting. The way he would mutilate the corpses and brutally kill his victims almost reminds me …

    Weekly Summery #9


    This week was long, I was awake most of the week working on coding work and a coding project. I was up until midnight on Monday, and on Tuesday I started coding at 9:00 am, took a break at 4:00 pm, resumed at 9:00 pm, and finished at 4:00 am …

    Ideas for future Projects


    I thought the radio show worked well, and perhaps we could do something similar and create, fittingly for the 1980’s theme, Radio Show 2: Electric Boogaloo, which would produce a show similar to the first radio show, but longer. There could also be a video show, with instead of being …

    Connected Daily Create Story


    Upon walking into a Walmart at 4:00 am, a man wandered into the painting isle, looking for more paint buckets to store water drinking in, but as the man was climbing the ladder to reach the paint bucket, the man slipped and fell down upon the fresh lead-based paint supplies …

    Weekly Summery #8


    This was an interesting week, I would have never expected the NBA, March Madness, and our campus to shut down entirely. I’ve never seen anything like this. I was meeting with my partner in the Radio Show project, Lewis, when they sent the email on Wednesday afternoon. It didn’t change …

    1980’s Rewrite Radio Show Week 2 Progress


    Many of us in the group had thought that the project was due on the Friday during Spring break, so we were all stressing to quickly finish the project during break, frantically trying to schedule a group call over GroupMe with our cell phones and get everything planned out, but …

    Weekly Summery #6


    This week started solemn, where I visited my grandmother’s grave on Sunday for the anniversary of her birthday. She died back in June, and they still haven’t made the tombstone for her yet, which is frustrating, so there’s just this square hole in the ground above where her urn is …

    Design Blitz


    I couldn’t upload photos to Instagram, since I glitched out trying to create an account there twice, but I have the pictures:

    It’s hard to see, but the water represents form, since it is unable to be manipulated, and always returns to it’s original shape

    Since there was an assignment …

    Chip Kidd Reflection


    I thought the article was interesting, in that it went in-depth into trying to describe design overall. I’d disagree with the author’s statement, “Everything that is not made by nature is designed by someone.” Neanderthals weren’t people, and they designed tools, and birds design nests. His other insights are interesting, …

    Assignment Bank: Warning Label


    For this assignment, we were required to make a warning label for a futuristic technology. Valve’s Portal 1 and Portal 2 were great games, and saw this as a great way to showcase the Portal Gun. The Portal Gun is a device which can create two portals which connect any …

    Assignment Bank: Menu Design


    Back in the 1980’s, personal computers did not have a graphical user interface, but instead had users type directly into the console. The assignment was to create an interface/menu, and this does so by recreating a typical 1980’s personal computer interface. I made it in MS paint by typing text …

    Assignment bank Contradiction Creation


    I usually try using contradictions as humor, and this assignment is perfect for that; create a glorious contradiction. I created this glorious image by finding a freely usable image of a rotting Coelacanth on Wikipedia, and used MS Paint to add text describing injecting the cold, rotting flesh and juicy …

    Assignment Bank: Missing Person


    After seeing an assignment to create a poster for a missing poster, I had a great idea: Why not make this missing person a criminal, and why make it a person at all? On November 9th, 1989, the Berlin Wall fell, and signaled the end of Communism in Europe. Being …

    Radio Show Idea: 1983 Soviet nuclear false alarm incident


    In 1983, Soviet nuclear bunkers had a computer error which falsely reported that US nuclear missiles were inbound, and Soviet authorities almost launched nukes at the USA. We could do a 30 minute story dramatizing the tension in that room, with a climactic story and believable characters. Audio alarms could …
