Since I missed last week, this will be my first reflection.
This week in class we took a look at audio sampling. We compared analog Vs. Digital. I honestly had not thought that much about it. I know I had heard music enthusiasts complain how digital doesn’t capture the fullness of the music and it leaves something to be desired. I understand now that capturing music digitally is like trying to turn a circle into a square. Its the same concept. A lot of ground is covered but since your cutting corners, you aren’t getting all of it
This week I had a lot of fun with my daily creates. The renaming of a movie poster was Hilarious. The hardest part for me was picking which movie to do! The one someone did about “The regular sized mermaid” cracked me up. I personally chose to do the “Drive” movie poster. I chose it for several reasons. One because of the layout, it was easy for me to edit out the tittle so I could insert my own. The other reason I chose that movie was because I couldnt get over how everyone said it was a great movie. When I watched it couldn’t get over Ryan Goslings terrible acting. I am a Gosling fan so its hard for me to say that but the WHOLE time he was Awkward. The way he stared at people and didn’t speak was so weird and then he some how got close to his neighbor. So I renamed the movie poster “The Awkward Neighbor”.
I am still trying to figure out the ins and outs of twitter. I have made a few tweets but I am doing it all from my phone so maybe I am not getting the full effect of the application. Also I discovered all my tweets are ridiculous. Ha!

For my Eames card design, I’m going to use Ecclesiastes 3 for inspiration. It reads
“There is an appointed time for everything,and a time for every affair under the heavens. A time to give birth, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to uproot the plant. A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to tear down, and a time to build. A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance. A time to scatter stones, and a time to gather them; a time to embrace, and a time to be far from embraces. A time to seek, and a time to lose;a time to keep, and a time to cast away. A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to be silent, and a time to speak. A time to love, and a time to hate a time of war, and a time of peace.”
The first one I have started on is a time to tear down and a time to rebuild.
Here we have 3 different horses but all 3 convey different feelings and ideas. There are many aspects of a horse and the first artist chose to play on the power and fierceness of a horse. Their lines are jagged and sharp and have a forceful forward movement. When you see this horse you think of power and force. The second picture is still a horse but it conveys a completely different picture. The horse is drawn with flowing graceful lines that don’t seem to close. I feel it focuses on the majesty and mystery of the horse. In the third picture, the artist never actually draws the horse, but uses colors and negative space to create the shape of the horse. Something that all three pictures convey is motion. You can tell that all three horses are running and which direction they are running.
