phonar-recycle-bin

During the Fall 2012 iteration of ds106 taught at UMW, we collected media from students that was unused in their previous work uploaded to http://dropitto.me/ds106phonar (the password was “photos4life” newly added media might take some time to be moved- we have to feed the squirrels that do this manual labor). The content was migrated to a public download site, which contains at least 150 images, audio and video http://minus.com/mvKXzhhcO.

Your task for this assignment is to mashup at least 7 different pieces of this media to make a new story, and use at least 2 different types (e.g. audio and image, imahe and video). The story most likely would be done as a video, but see if you can make these different kinds of media make sense as the content. What kind of recycled story can you make out of this cast off media?

Fight for Your Right to Recycle- Storytelling with Recycled Media Assignment

Today was recycling day in my household. But today was different in the sense that I wasn’t just sorting through plastic bottles and cardboard boxes, but also through old media files that were discarded and abandoned during the 16 weeks of ds106.

Since I’m a senior, and will be done …

Roadrunner Takes A Magic Muscroom
