Homework (due by Tuesday 3/17)
- Select individual Skype meeting sessions for 3/17 and 3/19, using this spreadsheet. THESE HAVE BEEN POSTPONED.
- Watch this video lecture about photography and information visualization by Nick Felton.
- Scan through the lecture pages linked above. Consider the capture methods presented in these lectures, as well as Felton’s video. In a blog post, speculate about a possible new subject to which one of these methods could be applied. (For example: “I was inspired by the time lapse studies of traffic, birds, and fireflies; I thought it would be interesting to apply this technique to ants.”) In your blog post,
- Answer the questions: Why would the method you chose be interesting to apply to that new subject? What might it reveal?
- Include a quick sketch depicting your concept.
- Categorize your blog post with the WordPress Category, TemporalCaptureIdea.
Please note: this homework is purely for the purpose of stimulating your thinking. There is no necessary connection to Project 2.
