It has been awhile since I have posted my “Project 4B” on the Angel disscussion board, so here are some after thoughts. I would include the pictures but I am currently using a different computer and it might just be easier to link you to my project post here. As I have, breifly, stated in the project post I am moving and so have been busy with other things; I guess I am trying to say that I feel as though I have not dedicated as much time as I should have to my academics. I neve got around to actually, physically, checking out any of the artist exhibits so I don’t think I can talk much about that, although I have checked out a lot of the sites and saw some thier works. I can’t point out any “favorites” but I especially liked Jim Campbell and his shodow/light art peices. I like the fact that he uses electricity to portray art, that idea is what tickles me the most and especially thinking back to the past few thunderstorms, electricity and lightning seem to be very abstract things and are so (for lack of a better word) energetic. It is there and then it is gone, and Jim takes that abstract, incorpreal, force and slows it down and condenses it into a dance, it is still lively and fleeting but it seems more permenant and emotional.
Anyway, I was actually hoping to dscuss my thoughts on the latest project but went off on a tangent. Yes I did draw the stickfigures myself, and actually I was hoping to draw more detailed and realistic figures, but like I said, I was moving (and still am I need to wrap this up) and didn’t have enough time to dedicate to the project. To be honest, I didn’t like the project all that much anyway, especially the Google Sketch-up bit; and I know that is what the project was really about, but it is just not my forte and I hate the thought of losing points because of it. Oh well, I turned it in and my mindset is that “something is better than nothing”… still would have liked to have spent more time on it.
I have never done a storyboard before (but I’m sure that goes without saying) so I hope I did alright with this storyboard. I feel as though I am prone to writing more than anything else, not that it is relevant to anything, it is just sometimes you learn something about yourself when doing homework (or maybe it is just me). SPEAKING of which! I need to start focusing on the parameters of Project 1B; can anyone suggest a case study?
I’m no Picasso, but here it is, I finished drawing all of my stuff awhile ago, and only recently scanned it in. I managed to get four. Four of the six and then the scanner peter-ed out on me; I’m not sure what is wrong with it, I tried everything a sane man would and then I tried hot tea (it normally works for me), anyway I guess it is just old and I need a new one. I saw we will end up with only 3 by the end of Part B so maybe it won’t matter too much, but I made sure to alert the Instructor. Can’t wait to see all of yours’s’, so cheers!
(Didn’t realize I could post the picture with my actual post so there is a duplicate; huh
It is up-side-down unfortunately, but yes, it IS a key (key+keychain=movingparts) and the other thing is a spyglass (not a telescope)
So I am fiddling around with this WordPress thing, I’m still new to it and the tutorials didn’t help as much as I would have liked. Apparently this is an “aside” and if it is anything that I suspect then this should be what I expect (duh), anyway fingers crossed; I hope I can do well enough with this WordPress thing.
So this is “Part A” of a semester long project given to my by one, Professor Shiflet, the instructor of my online course entitled Digital Design Foundation. If you are reading this and think that I have written this just for you, you are sorely mistaken; I often times find myself recapping the events of my life and spacing out more than I care to recount. I had written over three hundred words and then deleted them, if that doesn’t tell you how eager I am to say nothing then I don’t know what is.
I have never been a fan of blogging, but because I am being graded on it I may as well participate; just know that once this is over and I never have to do this again *[DELETE]*. Personally (and this is what I hate about it), I can’t understand why people would want to share the events of their life with strangers; I mean, I can understand certain blogs that discuss the events of important projects and/or events, but then there are social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook.
Ugh! I don’t want to say anything else because I am starting to feel hypocritical.
This is me. I am me.
No one else in the world can be me,
but you are welcome to try.
Can you try to be me?
I could tell you many things
but that wouldn’t make you me.
Hannah, Greg, Jim, Josey,
Abrosch, and Felicity
They could know Forest and given the oppertunity,
Forest could know them; but they will never know me.
Look in the mirror, and say: “I am me.”
