  We have come a long with technology from having a computer that could barely fit in a room to having a computer that has the world at the press of a button but can fit in your pocket. With this new found technology the only question we can ask is what are we to […]

In Evgeny Morozov’s article, The Death of the Cyberflâneur, he uncovers the reasons behind the disappearance of the cyberflâneur.

As we have worked out way through the “Photo-A-Day” assignment, I have noticed that I approach each picture with more creativity than I initially did. I recently finished the Self-Portrait assignment and I am onto the Faceless Portrait theme now.

The vine project is actually turning out to be harder than I originally had planned. The time limit is the hardest part to work around, especially the story-boarding aspect. It is definitely necessary to plan out each cut and scene, but it’s pretty difficult to relate that to such a small amount of time. If […]

I think I’ve made some good progress on the Photo-A-Day project over the last 2 weeks. I am really enjoying the Photo-a-Day project so far in all aspects of the assignment. I really like how this project forces you to think outside the box rather than just taking a “crappy” photo and posting for everyone […]
