Let's come to our senses

In class we discussed several ways that seeing sideways can make new connections. I showed examples of my own sideways work and how I have made the journey from a clay artist to a new media artist. We then got a look at our next assignment. This assignment is in 5 parts:
  1. Go to a movie and document the smells you encounter.
  2. Go out to eat and document the sounds you hear.
  3. Listen to music and document what you see.
  4. Get ready for your day and document what you physically feel.
  5. Go to the grocery and document what you taste as you journey up and down the aisles.
I am looking forward to doing these myself as well as seeing what everyone comes up with.

During class we all watched the movie "What the Bleep do We Know?" It is about quantum mechanics and there was some interesting discussion by some folks afterward.

After class we had our first meeting about the New Media Refrigerator I am presenting at the New Media Consortium in early June. I want to use as much student work as possible in it...
