Thank you everyone. I’ve enjoyed our 4 months of “river rafting” together. Some laughs. Some scares. Some amazing teamwork. Some solo heroics. And as our raft finally washes up at this river’s delta, the satisfaction of knowing that we tried our hardest, and each in our own way did our best, and learned something for our continuing journey.
I certainly learned a lot from you. I hope you learned at least a little from art110.
There are many students in this course and for many reasons we finish with all kinds of point scores. A low score doesn’t make you less of a person, nor does a high score make you more of a person. Still, with no disrespect to anyone who finished lower than hoped, I do think it is worth acknowledging a few of you who accumulated quite a few points. Some of your names are below.
Happy Summer… Happy Life… Big Ideas…

What an amazing week we had last week! I hoped our counterfactual identity projects would help us think about the hybridic, multiple, mixed reality ways we develop, express & explore identity in the 21st century. I hoped it would be an opportunity to think about creating narratives and considering truth & fake, fiction & non-fiction. But I really never imagined that nearly a dozen class members would wind up with one or more of their very own doppelgangers! What a fascinating life of its own this took on.
Meanwhile, we offered you the opportunity to consider the coin of our 21st century realm, Page Rank, and to try a little SEO/Google Bombing in pursuit of it. Some of you went for Page Rank supplemented by Facebook Friends and Twitter followers.
