Class today, April 10

Hello All – a reminder that today is work day. We should meet in N181 at 3 to have a short chat and check in with each other then you are free to work.  Karina and I  will be here around after that if you need anything.   Cole and Kerri are going to MOS to work on sound until 4 so they will not be here. SAMO is injured and will also be absent.  I am still waiting for the reports of the gameplan from 2 groups based on last week’s meetings.  Thank you Kelsey for your report.  See you later!

Class – April 3 2013

For class tomorrow night I’m hoping that we can start with a short presentation of the beautiful PR materials that are in the making.

– Then I’d like to hand out excerpts from your mid term self evals that we can discuss if desired.
– Then I will collect your reading responses from the readings (or you can email them to me, or post them on the site).
– Then my plan is to let you go and work!  Please let me know where you are and what you’ll be working on so that I can come find you and support you as needed.

The Title! Everybody talk about it!

During the PR Meeting we came up with two options for the title, “Sentient Flow”  and “Sentient”.

Since it was consensus that most people do not know want sentient means, I will give you the definition below, but also propose the idea to have an ink blot test (Rorschach test), which would form an abstracted brian as the background image for the post card/pamflet to further clarify.


[sen-shuhnt] adjective

1.having the power of perception by the senses; conscious.

2.characterized by sensation and consciousness.

3.a person or thing that is sentient.
4.Archaic. the conscious mind.
1595–1605;  < Latin sentient-  (stem of sentiēns,  present participle ofsentīre  to feel), equivalent to senti-  verb stem + -ent-
So tell us how y’all feel in comments or during the next class.

Non-class March 27

So, for those of  you that wanted to meet at 4 this day, what did you want to discuss? Did you want to take a look again at your videos and critique? do research on the your topics? talk about the ticket pricing again?

several students will be meeting with Karina to get going on PR materials. and some will be going to MOS to meet Berred. Who will be left to meet at 4?

Please advise.


Class at MOS – March 20 2013


Testing video drafts in the dome tonight.  You can see the 3 groups in the dome player interface below. Jason has been renaming all the students files in an organized way so that he can keep track of each version. 2 out 3 groups managed to get there files uploaded to the class’ dropbox folder earlier in the day so that Jason could get everything downloaded in time for class.
