I’ve done the ds106 photoblitz for the visual storytelling week a few times– originally this was a shorter in class exercise Jim and did in Spring 2012 where we used DuPont Hall on campus at UMW. IN the Fall of 2012 I did mine With Giulia Forsythe on the Brock University campus, and did it here in Strawberry at my home in the Spring of 2013.

All of them are tagged in one place. Tags are so useful to transcend the organization of content, its so sad that tagging seems passé when its just Vine Vine Status Vine Tweet Vine…

Each time I do it, its new, even yesterday when I did it super quickly before our google hangout. Start the clocks!

I live alone so for someone else’s hand I had to improvise. I do need help in the yard, that dude is lazy.

Not exactly complexity, but the patterns and what tree rings represent work for me.

Rather than a literal human emotion, the metaphor of resilience.

Ordinary Object changed just by what we leave out.

There is a bit of frantic-ness in doing this. It does not take long, and this time, I did not over shoot as much as I usually do (trying to take a lot of photos in case some do not work). What I get out of this is that spirit of creating or finding the match when it is not obvious. It is an adrenaline rush, and was very effective in changing up the live class situation where students get used to sitting in chairs.
