Project#4 reflection

During project 4, ¬†I didn’t really expect to do something like this for a project. I just thought we’re just gonna walk around, see things, explain it and that’s it, but actually doing the route and taking the time to ¬†see what is around you and have a sort of connection or feeling or emotion from what you’re looking at and where you are. You want to show everyone or anybody how things are in your perspective. I thought project 4 was a good experience for me to explore somewhere different to find what interest you if the route was quiet or filled with beauty or involves happiness or etc. I like to share things I like to convince people to do something that I think would be appropriate to them¬† and even though I’m not that convincing a times, I try my best to really get people in the spirit of wanting to see or do something without feeling like “oh it’s raining/it’s not a good weather today”, “oh I don’t want to do this cause I’m lazy”, but getting that feeling of wanting to do something is relaxing, refreshing, and comforting.

In my opinion this project helped me mentally and physically because I can be lazy and just stay in bed or if I’m in school after my classes are done for the day, ¬†I just sit & eat with my friends, but ¬†don’t move around and see what’s around the area. I want to see what’s around the school. I never been around Brooklyn as much (I don’t live him Brooklyn by the way) and it would be really cool to just see what’s out there for me to see. Mentally, ¬†I just overthink a lot and become stressful from tons of work I have to do and personal things but the walk helped my boyfriend ,whom was ¬†with me on the route, and I. It helped clear our minds and and try to enjoy what’s to see, have fun with it. Also tried not to think it was a project, but a challenge. I had smile on my face and he had a smile on his face. It was good to see him happy, is good to feel happy and when I looked at the Brooklyn Bridge I felt like I accomplished ¬†something and I wanted see more. I mostly focusing on the beauty of the bridge and see it in a different view and setting. ¬†it’s just hard to explain but Sometimes I see things In artist ¬†perspective and ¬†it’s just amazing. I explain it more in my Pitch essay! Check it out!

Completed Color Wheel

Took 3hrs to complete but I really needed to save paint for future work.

Reflection:

My first thought on this was honestly, “I have to use paint again”. I was sort of complaining to myself about using paint again, but I had to give in and accept¬†the fact that I have to do this. I did enjoy mixing/experimenting the colors and feeling like I got he hang of it. My hands aren’t the most steadiest hands, which I find very annoying, but I try to not rush into it and try to stay a little neat. But you can find some parts on it that’s a bit messed up. Anyway, I’m just glad that I’ve finished the best I can. (I forgot to add the colors around the fish by the way.)

Reflection & Summary of the reading, “What If You Could Choose Between the Fastest Route and the Most Beautiful?”

Summary

In the reading, “What If You Could Choose Between the Fastest Route and the Most Beautiful”, from the Atlantic CityLab, tests out if people enjoy walking in a more beautiful, happy, & quieter route or a more shorter route. It states that the participants that volunteered this experiment was shown two pictures of the location of London, which was the “test city”, had to choose which was more beautiful, happy, or quiet. But the more of them that picked between the pictures, it was altogether a general agreement. Using that, they had to have judges that were familiar with London to test it out. But it was all depending on what the weather or time of day to walk on those routes (beautiful, happy, shortest, or quiet) and they simply took pictures of the route they were on instead of walking. So, that information proved that the photosharing site Flickr, owned by Yahoo!, was good alternative ¬†for everybody.

Reflection

My Preference/alternative¬†for a route that is not the shortest would be able to see more nature or greener scenery to make feel calm and peaceful. Seeing more in the route you choose would make the trip more interesting and not a waste of time. Make time for just a stroll somewhere that can make you feel lighter or stress free. I noticed that people love to see new, beautiful, historic things around them. It’s fun to watch actually. Anyway,¬†I’ve been enjoying walking every since I was able to stand on my two little feels. I don’t care about how far or how long it would be for me to, but if someone was with me, they would be asking me questions over and over of where we’re going, how far is it, why do we have to walk so much, we can go this way. It’s annoying. Mostly throughout my life, I walked alone to places I want to clear my mind when I’m stressed or angry. Like walking around nature is the best and long route to do. You could be walking around in circles for hours and didn’t even know it because your just focusing on the surroundings than the time. It helped me with ¬†my struggle with depression years ago (makes me show old even though I’m 19 years old) and it can helps others as well. I think I’m rambling.

Field Trip Reflection

This trip made me learn so much about how books and printing began and was made. Having to look around the first & second exhibits we went to, I really felt the meaning from every artwork. ¬†How the artists put so much work and feeling into them, makes my heart stop. Also to stand there in person, makes a total differences if we looked at it from a video or tv. I enjoyed this trip ūüôā I can’t wait for the other trips in the future! it was very interesting and made me think more about my work.

Reflection on Eng1101 Project#1

I thought this project was pretty fun and easy to complete because it’s mostly about myself. Writing about yourself is a very simple assignment but there’s a limit, so, there’s not a lot of rambling. Surprisly I learned more about myself as an artist and other’s passions. It was very interesting to read other’s drafts to know about them.

I was pretty proud of all of it. But I would say my bio is the one thing I’m sort proud of. It’s starts to make the reader know the a little important stuff about me. So the bio is a important starter point to me. Anyway, I thought the feedbacks/comments from my fellow classmates was really helpful because without that I wouldn’t know if my draft need Provements or if it was fine enough.

Honestly, I would say this project took me 3 or 4 hours in total to do everything. It wasn’t that hard but thinking about what to write about was the hard part. The outline of my draft actually took the most time to do because I didn’t know what to write about for 30 mins. Yep, for 30 mins. Writers block to its fullest.

For the next project will be sort of longer for me to complete. But I’ll try not to think about it as long it’s going to take me, but how well it’ll turn out.
