For this project i chose as piece called “THE GREAT MOON HOAX OF 1835” Posted on October 25, 2015. I chose this piece of work because it represents what my theme of my book is, the theme of my book is observation and the title “Essence” comes from the original title of the book which was “silences” by Tillie Olsen. I also liked the colors that were used in the work that i used and i think it goes great with the aspect i was trying to convey.¬†

Ghetto

Tribune

Monotony

Modularity

Detritus

After doing all of these glossary words it really helped me out. Doing these words help me broaden my vocabulary. If I didn’t do some of the readings I would probably still not know what half the words I read mean. Looking up word can help you out in the long run because when you do search up the words you can get a better understanding of it and you can use the word in the future on a essay you are writing or a conversation you are having. Having all the other classmates post other words I may have missed or words that I thought I knew but turns out I was completely wrong about the words definition.

Slum

  1. 1.

a squalid and overcrowded urban street or district inhabited by very poor people.

synonyms: hovel, rathole;

ghetto, shantytown, skid row, shacktown

“this is the slum we call home”

 

I came across this word during my reading of Barney Collier’s Book. I have an idea of what this word meant before I read the actual definition because of the definition I did on the word Ghetto, but a slum is just a crowded place where the poor/lower class people live.

doing this project was actually pretty fun and was a nice experience. i got to know my partner better and see what we have in common and what is different about us. i also got a better understanding of color interaction and the way my eyes would see color. i chose a mixed color of pink and blue and that is the color you see on the right because of my partner Brandy Ortiz’s personality. her personality consist of being serious, giggly, passionate, and outgoing. i chose a cat as her icon because thats what she reminds me of because she can be giggly and happy at one point and switch it up real quick and be a very serious and straight forward person.
