During this semester I’ve learned to use digital tools and develop a wide variety of digital narratives. Using these tools I was able to design and build an online identity and narrate that process throughout the semester. Well it wasn’t an easy process but it was definitely a fun one if I do say so myself. I was able to create amazing projects with a greater range of creativity without being a stellar artist or wordsmith with the skill I was able to pick up in ct101 I can tell stories or impart information in my own way and on my own terms. I needed a vehicle for self-expression, to show what I have learned, to see new found knowledge and skills in a practical light, to take risks, and to take learning into my own hands.
What did you enjoy about your class.
What I enjoyed the most about ct 101 was being able to publish your post and get feedback/ comments from classmates and also the fact that you don’t need to be an expert to do it. One of the greatest strengths of Ct101 digital storytelling is the ability to share it with others instantly. Sharing might consist of showcasing student creations, or sending a message out to the world. Students can also work together on projects remotely or get feedback from their peers. Ct101 Digital storytelling usually involves different things like video, audio, and pictures to share your story in a unique way. The format of digital stories and the way they can be shared creates an emotional connection to the topic, inviting people to engage with a story and take action as a result of seeing it.
how will you apply your new skills to the world?
I will apply my new skills to the world by Sharing stories because i find Sharing stories is a great way to connect with people. In hearing a story, you may relate to another person and identify with their situation. digital Digital storytelling adds to regular storytelling by allowing the storyteller to include images, pictures, music, and other things to their story.
Will you maintain and keep up your new website?
Yes, I will continue maintaining my website (Fivesenseart.com)because it will definitely help me put the skills I’ve learned from ct 101 to the test. It is an opportunity to make a great first impression and give people comfort that you’re a real business. Having a website makes it very easy for people to find you, read up about your work, discover what you do, and answer a bunch of questions they have on your website. By having a website people will be able to find your website when they search for your company on a search engine like Google, and probably the fact that I’m having so much fun customizing it.
(Sorry I’m Having a bit of technical difficulty with my website so I won’t be able to give you guys a tour.) 🙁
Farewell, it’s been a pleasure.
Hello and welcome to fivesenseart.com where I was able to post five blogs but we will be focusing on two of my favorite posts. Posting blogs on fivesenseart.com was a blast. I had a great time creating, editing and posting my art on my website can’t wait to see what you guys think and I hope you guys are having fun with your website as I am with mine. I was able to edit my post By creating a gallery, you can display images in a grid layout with columns and rows. You can show thumbnails for your pictures, and users can click on them to see the full image. You can also use wordpress to create even more robust galleries with more features. WordPress comes with a built-in feature that lets you create a gallery. This feature is very basic and does not have many options, but it gets the job done.Here is how you would create an image gallery in WordPress without using a plugin.
First, you need to edit the post or page where you want to add the image gallery. On the post edit screen, click on the Add New Block icon and select the Gallery block.
This will add the Gallery block to your WordPress editor where you can click on the ‘Upload’ button to upload photos from your computer. You can also select from previously uploaded photos in the media library.
If you click on the Upload button, then you can generally upload one photo at a time. However, you can select and open multiple images with Ctrl key pressed on your keyboard. Alright Let’s move on to the good part!
The first and one of my favorite posts is called Sleepy soul not going lie creating this piece was really challenging. I didn’t know what color I should use and what kind of art I should go with. At first I was thinking of doing a realistic character but in the end I went with an animated character. I really like the end result of if and am really happy with my decision.
My second and second favorite blog post is called Loving soul. Loving soul is based on one of my favorite anime characters (Izuku Midoriya from My Hero Academia) but with my own twist to it. Creating that piece was really fun especially with the mix of colors and also the background detail.
Thank you for your time and have a great day!
The first thing that I worked on was the theme but I decided to leave on the default setting Twenty Twenty. Twenty Twenty is the new WordPress default theme. It is designed with the flexibility of the block editor at its core. If you want to use it for an organization or a business, you can combine columns, groups, and media to create dynamic layouts that show off your services or products.
The second thing that I worked on was the site identity. I was able to add a logo, site title, site icon. A site icon, also known as a favicon, is a unique icon for your website. It is shown on your WordPress.com dashboard, in your site visitors’ browser tab, and as a bookmark and home screen app icon when saved to a browser or phone.
The third thing that I worked on was the background image. Your background image is capable of representing your whole website in terms of sending a message, telling about your business, products or services and much more. So, a visitor can precisely know all about your site by looking at the big picture.
Step 1: Customize my Theme.
. add twenty twenty theme
Step 2 : customize my site identity.
. add a logo
.add a tagline
.add a site icon
Step 3: customize my background image.
. add a background
Step 4: Add Widgets.
.add a widgets image.
With the power of wordpress I was able to customize my website to my liking and wordpress allow site admins to tweak a theme’s settings, color scheme or widgets, and see a preview of those changes in real time and also wordpress make it easy to customize the theme, logo, tagline, site icon, and background. The theme customization page allows you to modify your site’s title and tagline and see how it will look on your actual site immediately.
Are memes ART?
Yes, I considers memes to be a form of Pop Art and draws a parallel to Andy Warhol’s work, which often involved appropriating images from pop culture.
Pop art is an art movement that emerged in the 1950’s and flourished in the 1960’s in America and Britain, drawing inspiration from sources in popular and commercial culture. Different cultures and countries contributed to the movement during the 1960’s and 70’s.
Memes are here to stay… But is this good or bad for Art?Is this good or bad for communication?
Memes are good for art. Memes, in all forms, are an act of condensing information. The digital horizon demanded new symbols that transcend language barriers. Instead of attempting to represent subjective reality, memes collage shared experiences for a single purpose which is sharing. It is not who created the original meme but rather how its meaning has been transformed or imposed on by who is sharing it.
Are memes simply just forms of self-expression?Or are they MORE? Well, why or why not?
Personally speaking, Memes are a way of expressing culturally relevant ideas and thoughts.
According to behavioral science Memes are an extremely sophisticated form of communication.
Can Memes be used for storytelling?
Yes, Because the storytelling process is mostly left to visual storytelling. Visual storytelling always involves the use of graphics, images, pictures, and videos to engage with viewers in an effort to drive emotions, engage intercommunication, and motivate an audience to action.
My favorite existing memes are?
The reason why those two memes are my favorites is because they are short, witty, relatable even though they are all unique, most memes tend to follow similar patterns in the characteristics they possess and the effects that they have on their audiences.
What did you think on the first day of the CT101?
To be completely honest I was very impressed with the first day of class. I didn’t think we would be doing cool and fun activities like this.
Did you like hearing about the course and its creative content? How did it make you feel?
Yes, I like hearing about the course and its creative content because knowing that we won’t be focusing on a textbook all the time is really important and it’s really easy to learn new things. I felt very excited and ready to let my imagination go crazy.
How does CT101 compare to some of your other classes?
CT101 is more like a hand on and let your creativity run wild kind of class while my other class focuses more on textbooks and reading. To be honest I don’t mind the reading part, but I prefer a hands-on kind of Education.
What are the potentials of this class?
My major is computer technology. Everything that we’ve done in this class is already an improvement to my skills and one step toward my goal.
How do you feel about learning new skills that use Internet tools?
I am amazed and ready to learn more.
(Assignment #1) What I like to do in the Internet?
The first activity that I like to do in the internet is making some sick beat using patatap. Patatap is fun, and it’s a portable animation and sound kit. With the touch of a finger create melodies charged with moving shapes. They even have matching visuals to complement the sounds, so I just Jam out with friends and have a good time.
2. The second activity that I like to do in the internet is Photoshop picture online using pixlr. I Just go on and manipulate my photos and make my friends look fat. It’s a classic!. It’s easy really to Edit photos and create stunning designs right in your browser, on your phone or desktop.
3. The third activity that I enjoy doing the most in the internet is creating video or gif using Movavi video Editor plus. To be honest there’s multiple websites I like to use, but I prefer using Movavi because it’s a really easy to use interface and comes with an impressively wide range of built-in effects, audio, graphics, gif, text, etc.
4. My fourth activity is soundscape. I Just like to mix and match different rhythms, beats, and melodies to come up with my own lo-fi music. The best part is that you don’t even need any musical knowledge. Just select your sounds, relax, and keep the music on loop for hours while you browse through these other websites.
5. The Fifth activity that I like to do on my free time in the internet is drawing using infinite painter. Personally speaking Infinite Painter is one of the most advanced painting website (app). you can dock nearly any tool to the main interface, easy access, and it offer the best balance for everyday artist.
