Final Portfolio Blog 2

So I finally figured out that darn Locative Media problem I was having. I started off really over-complicating things by not remembering I had access to my audio files via my email, so I attempted to retrieve them from the ENVD lab where I saved them to my student folder. For some reason I couldn’t […]

Final Portfolio Blog 1

Berger and Scott Reading Response (with .gif)*

The anecdote Scott shares in his article about the slight dissonance in authenticity he experienced while watching “What a Wonderful Life” on his laptop reminded me of Georges Méliès 1902 film “A Trip to the Moon”. Specifically, the two varying versions of the film available on Netflix. One version is in black and white, and […]
