Lots of wonderful work this week… but also a lot of incomplete work this week. Very few of you included your research on the artist, so I had to take points off. What was required for P4 was clearly stated on the EYEWTKA page on the wiki and stated again with a points breakdown on the P4 Rubric on BeachBoard. If you aren’t reading these, you’re losing points that you could have easily had.
Speaking of “research,” some nice research is up at the top of this page, a Joshua Fried video embedded on Alex Tellez’ page. Pretty cool, below is a “Sound Cloud” of their whole interview with Joshua – sweet!
Rachel Youngdale made a really nice page on her artist, choreographer Doug Nielsen. Actually her whole page is very nice, except (hahaha, listen to me, “except”) if you look at the gunky characters in the URL of her page above… that’s what you get when you use stuff other than Letters, Numbers, -_ in the name of your page. Since the name of your page becomes a live URL, those “special” characters and spaces can really mess things up, so I’d stick to AlphaNum, dash, underscore only.
The video she posted above actually told me something I didn’t know about Doug… that he’s not only an amazing dancer/choreographer/teacher… a dancer’s dancer, really… but that he also has a remarkable contemporary art collection – thanks for the info Rachel! 🙂
Mario Ramirez went to visit Betty Tureaud in Second Life, and I just had to include this amazing photo… Betty rezzed chairs for them floating in an immersive color space… what a host! 🙂
Brandon Rasmussen & his peeps just went ahead & video’d their whole convo with Jocelyn Foye – so cool! 🙂 Above is “Part 2 of 3”
We didn’t ask you to video the convo’s but said just snap a few pix, because we thought the camera might take your attention or get in-between you and the artist, might get in-between the conversation and the ideas… still… it’s pretty cool that they were able to capture this conversation with Jocelyn! Lucky us to get a peek at their encounter and Jocelyn’s ideas. 🙂
There was lots more wonderful work this week, but these are at least a few of the exciting projects of the week. Keep up the great work everyone!
