Most of you said in your vlogs that you thought this reading was a lot more enjoyable then the last reading. I liked these readings as well. But you guys did do a great job on your vlogs!!! Some of you even spoke to the camera when you were dying from throat infections and infectious colds! Ewww…But there were a lot of you who sought deep into the reading and gave great views about Eva and Franco’s projects. The only thing that irked me was that most of you still couldn’t pronounce their last name, Mattes. Its Mot-tez!!!!
Man! There was so many obstacles that you guys had to over come with P7. Computer fails in the lab, Internet going out, having to obey prim limits, Island at prim capacity multiple times. Aren’t you guys glad that your galleries are just about done, if not already done? You guys are all awesome. Especially for putting up with the all the SecondLife DRAMA!!!!
Even with all the issues, everyone said that their galleries are going very well. AND IT SHOWS!!! Totally awesome galleries. AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME Galleries. I’m glad though that your frustrations on SecondLife are minimizing slowly. And now you don’t have much left to do on SecondLife!!! YAY for some of you, especially the IHATESECONDLIFE peep.
There are so many galleries that I saw and LOVED! But unfortunately, I can only pick a few.
OMGWTFBBQ MAN! This gallery is awesome. I remember seeing this gallery when the they were starting to build the castle. And look at it now! LOOK!!! LOOK AT IT!!!!! These people put a lot of work into it. I just love how this gallery turned out. ❤
I love this gallery. It looks completely, utterly, truly awesome. It might not be finished but man it looks totally awesome. It is awesome how the floors are see-through and you can see underneath. Vincent and his group members did an amazing job, and they stayed true to their idea of giving their gallery a futuristic feel. I cannot wait to see it when its all finished.
These guys are the reason why VirtualCSULB runs out of prims. But man! Their structures are truly amazing. The Brothers are some serious Professional SecondLife Builders!!!
Ummm. WOW!!! This gallery has REALLY come through a transformation. I remember seeing this gallery on thursday lab and it was nothing like this. BUT MAN! Tayler and her group members pulled their gallery out of a magician’s hat of awesomeness!!!
As the title suggests, this only the first week of P4. Now that you all have met your artists, you can probably feel the pressure of stepping it up when it comes to the Virtual Art Galleries.
I was so proud to see the pictures and videos of people meeting with their artists. I started researching these artists during the summer and now they seem like celebrities to me. The work they do is so visually appealing but also has some things to say about how we live today. You look at some of the work that these people have done and you think “even if Ray Bradbury and Rachel Bloom had been alive 100 years ago, could she have even been able to do what she did?” The answer is no on so many levels. First, photography and filming is a fairly new invention so it didn’t exist back then. Also, Rachel Bloom would have probably been shunned and sent to live with nuns had the thought of fucking Ray Bradbury even crossed her mind.
Not to say that mediums like painting will ever die but, today there is a bigger fish to fry. It’s actually more like fishes. The invention of the camera propelled art into the 21st century and today we have artists like Juha Arvid Helminen and Rachel Bloom. People like Vaneeesa Blaylock use people (avatars) as their medium and Possimiste uses sound recordings. It’s a different world today.
Onto the projects…
I graded 9a, last names M-P. Really great work. A couple critiques:
- I really wanted to see the artist’s answers to the questions asked. A few people didn’t add the answers. kind of sad about that. 😦
- A lot of you are into putting music in your vids which is great but in the right context. When there is a slideshow of pics with no audio, GO FOR IT. play music! when it’s you vlogging and i need to listen to the words coming out of your mouth, not so appropriate. Either lose the music entirely at that part or turn it down to the point where i have to listen really hard to even know what song it is.
All in all, i am very proud (and jealous). This class has changed so much since the last time i took it and now all the cool things are being done. 🙂
So here are some of the great projects i collected. I will be showing this to your artist so that they can see what you did. (muah hahaha)
That was the common sentence in a lot of your videos. But there were a lot of cool videos made out there with very thoughtful ideas about Eva and Franco.
Congrats on another project down. 3 down, 12 or so more to go! If you guys are still having trouble with the wiki let us know in Lab or Office hours. Or you can set up a time to me with us on Fridays in AS-120. We can show you how to embed a video, link back to your profile page, or how to make a “projects” page. You guys will be graded down if you guys don’t do these things correctly.
Awesome work you guys. It was fun to see your insights on the dynamic duo, and your thoughts about their works. But there were a few who went beyond just answering each question. They dug deep and really thought about who Eva and Franco were and understood what they were trying to do or show with their projects.
Tayler Nicholson’s Vlog
Elliot Osrin’s Vlog
You guys have to interview your artists BEFORE Sunday for your P4. So set up an interview with your artists ASAP with your question. Let us know if you guys are having trouble getting a hold of your artists or if there are time conflicts.
Kudos to those of you who completed Project 1, and double if you got a bomb grade. This was a lot of work but we always have super stars in Art110. Always.
SO HERE’S MY TOP 3:
THIS GIRL IS AWESOME.
Sadly, guys, I think this may have been the only vlog(video+blog) that made me laugh out loud. I was hoping for more of those. But this girl is.so.cool. I mean, watch the vlog! It’s funny right??? And totally answers the questions we asked. Super A, my friend. And… can I have your sweater?? Just asking…
This is Grover, Mark and Scott (who I assume are brothers because same last name and in a video together??
That can’t be a coincidence.), and Anthony.
Guys, you really won me over with the music. I never really played Sims except on a Game Boy SP but… I’ve always secretly wanted to. This music is from the Sims, right? Anyway, you guys are funny. And very thoughtful on random objects such as… a Godzilla cup holder. I totally remember having that or something like it when the actual movie came out. But may I ask what it’s for? It’s not holding a cup in a car or anything… I don’t imagine you’d need it on a desk or anything unless you have a bumpy desk?? But I don’t see how a cup holder not attached to anything would help out in that situation. Yo, help me out. WTF is it for???
By the way, I definitely enjoyed the guest appearance at the beginning.

This is JERONIMO.
You’re allowed to yell his name if you wanna. He told me so. (On the Facebook group)
HE LIVES, BREATHES, AND EATS FILM. I mean, I really like film but I prefer to eat ice cream and pasta roni. It’s cool though, this guys’ a fire cracker, super passionate about film’n’stuff and I can dig it. Feist at the begining/end?? Okay, I can dig that too. And making your video black and white totally helped out with the “crappy lighting”. Nice to look at, good content; good vlog, right?
AND THEN THERE’S THIS GUY
Bryan made this siiiick steam punk wheel chair. SO COOL, RIGHT???
I mean, dude, your vlog was alright but I was really blown away by the wheel chair. I’m really amazed by your mad SecondLife skills and can’t wait to see what’s next from you. Totally awesome work Bryan. Virtual high-five, or thumbs up; whichever you prefer. Some people don’t really like virtual germs.
