I am certain that Katy Perry did not have this class in mind when she was creating, but I have reinterpreted the video for the purpose of sharing my growth over the semester.  Please view the video, then read the lyrics below.  I have added notes in italicized parentheses to clarify how I have applied […] ...

CRP: Session 7

At the end of the semester, I find myself looser with my blogging and a quite a bit more creative than I have been!  My last project idea came with more ease and I took more technical risks as a result.  Most of the time, I have consumed more time making decisions about which idea […] ...

Meaning

When the Schwartzberg video challenged viewers to consider cultivation and gifts to the world, I immediately thought of sharing knowledge.  I certainly appreciate the air, water, earth, and organisms responsible for maintaining us, however, I thought more about my growth as an individual from childhood.

The Aptitude of Symphony: Wow is an understatement

“I already knew how to design…It’s almost like being exposed to all this media over the years had instilled a kind of dormant design literacy in me…I feel like every day all of us are being blasted by information design.” So I removed an image because I must have been too lazy to download it […] ...

CRP Session 3: Story

SELF-PERCEPTION The comparison between what I am learning about creativity and what I have learned about Art are almost impossible to distinguish.  Of course, there are different angles in the respective fields of study, but the outcomes are very similar.  As we progress through this course, it is becoming clearer to me what it is […] ...
