Locative Media Project- Sofia Penaylillo

Sofia Penaylillo Locative Media Project I am reviewing Nick Vallejo’s project. I didn’t have any trouble getting it to work which I was very impressed by because I had so many issues with getting my own to work. The only hiccup was trying to get to the same spot to play the same time. What […]

Reading Response #3 – Sofia Penaylillo

The aim of Picture This: the Impact of Mobile Camera Phones on Personal Photographic Practices by Lisa Gye is to look at the current social uses of personal photography and its impact on the uses. I’ve never previously thought about the evolution of photography in terms of cultural prior to this article so it was […]

Reading Response #3

In William Mitchell’s article “Replacing Place,” he discusses the impact that cyberspace is having on the physical world. Mitchell argues “virtual places now do much of real estate’s traditional job” because of how cyberspace can serve numerous functions, which historically have been isolated in specific locations (library, market, etc.). Throughout the article, the emphasis is […]

Since we are giving away information all the time, and now that we have more access than ever, we’re widening our sphere of influence while simultaneously shortening its depth. This […]

reading response #3 (Lisa Gye) – Ely Hess

Lisa Gye’s article talks about how photography has been fundamentally changed by the use of the camera phone, and because of this our ideas about why we take photos have changed. She argues that instead of using the camera to capture reality, as it used to be, camera phones have changed the way we take […]

Reading Response 3

In the article by Erickson, Documentary with ephemeral media, discusses the idea of documenting moments for various reasons. I thought it was interesting because earlier in the semester, Andy talked about how cameras or film capture a version of reality and that fleeting moment. So similar to how people take pictures of landscapes and cities, […]
