As I experienced last semester, sometimes getting in touch with your artist can be a kind of painful experience. You are talking to these wonderful artists or performers who have incredibly busy schedules. So not only do you have to worry about making plans and deciding on a location, you also have to worry about what to ask them and how you will manage to show off their art in Secondlife and how it will impact your grade. This is why, despite some set backs and resulting extensions, I am so proud of my students these past two weeks for doing all that they could do and sometimes more to prove that they will work hard at this project.
By far Project 3 Flash mobs were the most looked forward to project so far this semester. It was a new thing we were trying out and it turned out to be a blast. Ranging from the subtle freezing in place to people running around in sheets, it made for a day of confusion and enjoyment for not only the Art-110 students, but anyone on campus lucky enough to see them. Hopefully it becomes a semester tradition that everyone can look forward to in the future.
It’s difficult to pick out specific people for this project, but here are some of my favorite flash mobs from last Thursday:
Better late then never!
Despite the issues we had the first week of posting projects, we finally got everything done. HURRAY!!!!
Project 1 is a chance to get a feel for what we’re going to be doing most of the semester, so some of you had a blast and some of you had some trouble, but it all turned out well in the end. There were some pretty awesome projects these first two weeks so let me run my favorites by you.
