when rolling the dice, i got 1 sound (3) and 6 design strategies (3, 6, 6, 3, 5, 4).

and also here is my practice animation using the technique of viewing all frames as an artboard. that was so much fun to edit on a whole segment of frames as like one solid unit. here’s my animation as a gif:




Animation practice


hooray for first experience w animation! i did a lot of moving the objects around and added filters of different noise values. once i added more duplicates, it got really confusing to keep the objects in order how i wanted them. but it still ended up cool.


I think of New York City having a very distinct soundscape different from what I am used to from where I have lived before. Probably the ‘keynote sound’ in my opinion would be cars honking. Other sounds include the bustling sound of people walking bristly down the sidewalk and the low chatter of businessmen talking on the phone. When you’re near a subway you can hear a signal of trains whooshing through the tunnel, alerting you that the train is arriving soon. When you’re actually in the subway, there’s a distinct soundmark of the subway narrator announcing the train, its location, the final destination, and sometimes a warning about the gap between the platform and the train. The sounds in the city are very droning, especially when they’re all layered together, from the low chatter to the train whooshing. It’s just one solid buzzing sound that is almost impossible to tune out.

Chronological Collage

My subject is wlw or lesbian couples/women. I cited most of my resources in this post.

Here is the final piece:

flat collage

Here are some progress screenshots I took along the way, including the version before any changed or added color hues.

I believe my collage falls under fair use because the figures are cropped out of their original image, most of the time recolored, and created into an entirely new and original image.
