Potholes–Kendal–Mckenzie 11a(A-D)

Congrats to those people who did the project this week. I know that we asked a lot of you to go see your artist in person/SL/Skype but it was one of the best ways to get to know your artist other than what Google had to say about them.

One of the main issues that I kept running into was the renaming and resizing of photos. That should be the easy points, not the ones that bring down your grade. If you don’t resize your photos then it might take forever for your page to load, and if you dont rename your photos to something unique and pertaining to the project, then your photos might get overwritten with someone elses pictures. If you guys are still having trouble with this then come see us in office hours. Also if you are having trouble embeding your videos please come to office hours so we can help you.

Also, we did ask for the artists’ responses to your questions. Some of you guys didn’t even type them out. You might have had them in the videos that you recorded but we wanted them written out on your wiki. Be happy we weren’t grading down on that.

There were a lot of great P4’s out there though. And some projects with lots and lots of pictures. I like pictures. So it was cool to see all the photos that were take of your groups and artists. Here are some that I really did like

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

Potholes

Vanna Chem’s P4 was awesome. Vanna and his group recorded their skype meeting audioly, visually, awesomely. What was better was that he and his group were able to show themselves so that way Potholes could see who they were talking. Awesome Job Vanna.

 

 

Gracie Kendal

I was impressed with all the research that Guadalupe had on her page. Half of it was on what she researched on the Gracie Kendal. But what was even more impressive was that Guadalupe saved the whole conversation box of the interview. And of course Lots of pictures, awesome picture. Kudos to Guadalupe and her group for meeting with Gracie Kendal together.

 

Annalie Mckenzie

Tyler Denering’s P4 was awesome! though he didn’t write down the artist’s responsesBUT ANYWAYS. There were so many awesome pictures. It looks like he snuck away from the artist and took pictures of amazing works, then snuck back to take a photo with his artist. Amazing work.

Project 1 – 11a – A-D

Hi guys, I graded the 11a class for peeps with last names from A-D. There were many cool chairs and some really thoughtful vids, but I really have to give a big shout out to two peeps who just blew me away: Brianna Bracy and Lupe Cornejo.

Brianna’s home page is fantastic! I always say your home page is like a handshake at a job interview: sure, you could refuse to shake the interviewer’s hand and if your stuff is great you might still get the job… but why??? Don’t you want to walk into an interview with a smile on your face and a great handshake and immediately make it clear to the other person how enthusiastic you are about discussing the possibilities of working together? The minute I saw Brianna’s home page I thought, how lucky I am to be in a class with this person! The photo of Brianna with the kid from the Dominican Republic on her back is probably the sweetest pix I’ve seen so far this semester. What a gift that Brianna was interested enough in us to share some of her summer adventures with us.

Beyond the great handshake, her P1 is really solid. I appreciate that she gave us not just one, but a number of photos from a variety of angles (and, hahaha, next time she will have me show her how to zoom in! 😛

Like so many of you, her vlog is a nice, thoughful piece.

Lupe’s home page looks totally different from Brianna’s, but it also shows thought, care, and a real effort to get to know us.

You really have to read the whole odyssey of Lupe’s chair design. I love that she documented her whole process! Beyond just giving us the one photo we required, she showed us the evolution of her chair and the development of her thinking about it – fantastic!

Although I didn’t see anyone in the A-D group do it, remember that you drew those sketches of chairs – I saw a number of really awesome sketches – it’d be so cool to scan your sketch or snap a pix of it and stick it on the wiki.

Like Brianna and so many of you, Lupe made a really nice vlog. I have to thank all of you for sharing your thoughts with us and for just plain having the nerve to make these vids. I know plenty of you are shy or private about things, so thank you for giving this a shot. Back to my job interview metaphor, not only will many of you have job interviews in your future but I think all of you will need to present your ideas in many ways to many different audiences. Just as speech and writing classes are so valuable, I hope these vlogs not only help you think about art and ideas, but also make you a better communicator in all the things you do here at CSULB and beyond in your life.

Thank you Brianna… thank you Lupe… thank you all!
