Micro-Project #2: Tele-Stroll


Wednesday, Jan 24, 2018 - 11:52:06 pm

@ Jasmine

For our Tele-Stroll, Me and Nadiah thought that we could film our livestream at two different locations that is very relevant to us in our daily lives now, in hall for me and at home for her respectively. We thought that we could use this to show the differences in our lifestyles since I stay in hall while she Read more →

OpenSourceCulture: summary


Wednesday, Jan 24, 2018 - 11:31:50 pm

@ hello

Open Source Culture, from what I understand is the system where people in the community share resources so that we sort of bounce ideas and information off each other. This used to be used exclusively to describe software, but since then, has been used to describe various other things such as the idea of having an open (virtual) Read more →

Yes, Jocelyn, co-working spaces are an excellent example of open source thinking, in which there is an emphasis on social interaction and cross-fertilization of projects. You demonstrated a good understanding of open source, and I really liked the video you shared, however, I would encourage you to draw from specific examples from the readings to support your argument. That is the main thrust of our writing assignments. But you have a wonderful writing style and I very much enjoyed your ideas.
Its nice that you included a video to provide a concise yet unconventional way of summarising the 2 essays on top of the written summary.

Open Source Studio


Technology. Merely a byproduct of an idea drawn on paper by men and women, has transformed into one of the most influential advancements in modern society. Specifically the creation and expansion of the World Wide Web, an open source of information designed only 25 years ago. Through a short period of time, the internet has managed Read more →

I was very impressed with your understanding of open source thinking. I like the way you applied the concepts to our use of OSS, which of course is highly influenced by DIWO and other forms of open source practices. Very clever meme, but when you use an image such as from Please Change Beliefs, be sure it is because you are discussing the work in your essay. I would recommend using more specific references and images to incorporate into your essays from the readings and to be sure they are all part of the discussion and analysis. But your general assessment of open source is very good.

Bringing you live today: The Tale of Two Cities

What kind of city, you ask? Its City hall station and City Square Mall, the location where the both of us were lived at. The main aim of this video is to match each other to someone/somebody that fits the criteria given by each of us. Alongside me we Read more →

Daphne and I decided to create the live broadcast of us getting ready for school in the morning, as both of us experienced long-distance friendships. We always eat with friends through video call or co-broadcasting. Sometimes, we will just leave the broadcast on and do our own work without talking. Thus, for this project, we planned to do our Read more →

As the remaining three amigos, we decided to do a double pairing, in which my partner became Bella. After a few brainstorms, we decided to do something ordinary for girls, something that happens daily for most girls. This led to the idea of girls getting ready together. Have you ever wondered why girls go to the bathroom together or even Read more →

Oh Cecilia but she did one with Bella too!

For this micro-project, my friends and I were put in a group of three. Resulting in my friend doing the project twice. However, for my project, we decided to do it about food. She and I are from different cultures and our original plan was centered around the differences in our cultures food. However, due to the factors such as; Read more →

I am intrigued by the mirrored effects of both the actual mirror and the one produced by the broadcast. Great idea! We'll discuss further in class.

@ Bala's OSS

We had our first experimental interaction class today! I decided to record down my notes from class and conduct some further research on the works we discussed, as Mr Packer mentioned that Cut Piece was a classic (it was mentioned again in the reading he gave us).

What we discussed in class Yoko Ono – Cut Piece (1964)

Bala, this is excellent!! Your essay includes exactly what I am looking for: specific examples and references to support your analysis, use of relevant images to illustrate the ideas, and a well crafted essay that summarizes the readings. I will share your work with class as a very thorough assignment.
I like how you use various examples and media in your writing, it makes your work interactive and further proves the point of open source practice.
Very detailed summary! The examples give me a better understanding of the articles.
Thanks Bella!
Thanks Mr Packer! I'll continue to do the same for the subsequent assignments.

@ 遠き世に

The term “open-source” is used to describe software, of which its source code is available for perusal and modification. This is in direct opposition of proprietary software, which restricts access to its source code. Predictably enough, however, the concept of proprietary software became pervasive once the profitability of software as a commodity was established.

Essentially, the harshness of the closed Read more →

Hey there!! I thought that the Permanent Redirect art that you shared was really interesting! I was trying to click on the link to access the art but then they kept giving me an error message and then I realised that was the whole point of the art piece. 8'D I love the concept, making use of URL redirecting that is something that is unique to the Internet, and it makes me REALLY want to find out what the actual art piece looks like... but I guess we'll never see it.
Excellent work, very well written, and well referenced. You made several important observations about the relationship between open source thinking and the art of the social practice, which was the purpose of assigning these essays. We are trying to understand some of the underlying principles of the social practice, and your essay demonstrates exceptionally how open source leads to more collaborative forms of artistic practice. It might be helpful to include some description as to why the two artworks you cited are important to your critique.

Some excellent points regarding the complexity of ownership and copyright issues as it pertains to technology and particularly to software. I am not familiar with all the examples you cited so perhaps you can share with the class, because I think you are adding an interesting addition to the history I am discussing. One issue you need to resolve: it is impossible to read your post without manually highlighting the text. You either need need to change the customization of your theme or find a new theme altogether. Perhaps you are trying to "glitch" our Wordpress reading? ;)
