This semester, one of my greatest challenges was to learn how to synthesize all of the readings and lectures in my history of art education class in one cohesive map. I had originally done a map on paper but was dissatisfied by the limitations of the size and constraint in holding info. I’ve also realized that when I was looking up information on art education, there would be at least ten tabs open on my browser. I knew there was a way to make the experience in learning, retaining information a lot more efficiently and in a more enjoyable way, and so I thought about creating an interactive map.
I made coasters with a 3-D laser cutter!
I learn how to 3-D print my own cookie cutter and made a patch featuring my cat.
Demystifying Makey Makey: I learn about closed/open network of circuitry, Scratch software and Makey Makey hardware, and strange everyday objects that can make noise.
Inspired by John Whitney’s polar coordinates animation, I learn how to recreate vintage computer art with parametric equations in Processing.
