Well my Spring Break was a lot of fun, very refreshing, and ridiculously fast! I hope yours was also fun & refreshing and maybe not quite so fast. I hope you had a chance to travel, or hang out with friends and family, or just catch up on work, and hopefully you got a little rest. And now for some exciting info about all the cool things we get to hear and do in the big finish, final 1/3 of the class…
I’m posting my “Happy Spring Break” video here because in addition to saying Have a great break… I also offer lots of info and ideas for P10-11-12, which besides the presentations, are out last 3 projects.
P10 – Venice Beach Legal Art Walls
P11 – Video Project
P12 – Counterfactual Identity
The video also has info on presentations, vlogs, and clickers when we get back. Watch & learn! 🙂
Remember that the Venice Legal Art Walls are only open on Saturday & Sunday – 10am to 1/2 hour before Sunset. We talked about this the first day of the semester and also 3 weeks ago, so hopefully now that there’s only one weekend left, you either went already, or have plans to go this weekend. Some of the TA’s and I will be there Saturday from 10a to 2p if you want to hang out and drink iced tea. But you don’t need to be there when we are. If you have special needs regarding this trip, speak with your TA.
I know some of you don’t have cars, but over half the class does, so carpool! It’s more fun and you’ll have more colors of paint to work with. Even though you guys hate driving, when all’s said & done, these trips will be for many of you the best part of the class, so embrace it!
You might also like to think about P10-11-12 as a block. Who will your Counterfactual Identity be? I talk about that in the video, so check it out. Maybe you can go to Venice and write something that your CF-ID would write… those pix could be posted by your CF-ID… and your video could play in too.
You don’t have to do this, you can make all 3 separate works, but combining your ideas for 2 or all 3 of the projects could be fun and interesting. And continuing with our ePortfolio theme, think of a way that this work can help you think about things you care about, maybe explore your major, and maybe even be showcase work for you.
I was talking to a Criminal Justice major today who’s really passionate about Human Trafficking. I think it’d be great if she thought about doing 10-11-12 as a unit. What if her CF-ID was a Trafficking Victim… what would they spray paint on the street or make a video or online post about? If you know about the “LonelyGirl15” project from a while back that was a project that really captured a lot of people’s imaginations.
