This video plays around the idea of the inner child in me. People use to get excited over chocolates and all things happy, but now, as an adult, they tend to find joy in drinking and such. The joy they experience is reminiscent of the happiness they received over small things, as a child.
Usually, I get lazy to create new folders to save whatever I am doing into thus, they would all land in the desktop as you can see in the image above. Different Photoshop files and Word documents all over the place. However, I keep it an organized mess. I hate seeing the different files all over the desktop. As for my background, it changes automatically every 30 minutes. It does not get boring that way and I like it.
Telematic embrace is honestly my favourite micro-project so far. It was actually the highlight of my day. I feel that it is an interesting way to actually understand better, the concept of a third space which is the integration of the first space (local/remote space) and second space. The whole class was tasked to enter “Adobe Connect” and switch on our webcams. While seated on our individual seats, we were able to see one another live through our little camera screens collected in the application despite not being in view of every one of us in real life itself. As seen in the picture above, we did different movements together at a time to create a beautiful image as such. The coolest thing about this experiment to me is the fact that we were all in a first and third space together, at the exact same time and this is the art of social practice. It depicts the quality of communication which enables us to carry out synchronous acts. In order for it to work, negotiation is key. Participants would have to know how to compromise and cooperate. How wonderful it is to make possible, the witnessing of the juxtaposition of two spaces. Here is another screenshot of us showing pink items that we own:
This was such a cute activity though awkward because I barely know any of my classmates and we had to do it around ADM where so many people are just walking around and staring. To be able to see all of the live videos together on the live wall so intriguing. I love it!
