Finally, easter break!
Unfortunately, this has to be a short blog post because i’m sick and have zero energy… We’re still covering aspects of video games in lectures, but at Tuesday we went to Mia’s exhibit – “Texttransformations” – which was pretty cool. I thought it was cool the way she visually displayed a “thought” digital network with the red thread, and also, that she incorporated old forms of textuality in her installation showing the ways of organizing information in the past and pointing to the ways we communicate today. She also incorporated “found objects” from the archives of the Humanities Library making a DADA sensibility of taking a object that seems functionary but reinterpret it in an artistic space to produce new forms of meaning. I took the picture below showing an old Remington typewriter Mia used in her installation. It was stationed next to the modern computer showing kind of a nostalgic illusion of how we used to write.
I’ve continued to post a few #dda’s on Twitter which I’ll share with you.
I thought this was a fun #dda because I haven’t played in AGES. The #dda said we should play for 10 minutes but I think I played for about an hour. I’ve also taken up some time playing games on my phone. There was this game “Temple Run” that was widely popular a few years ago and know I’m playing it for fun (and when I’m bored and want to pass time). Still a casual player. But I got the gaming bug hehe.
I’ll leave you here with this and play some Tempe Run pretending I’m one of the gamers and hoping I will recover from my severe (exaggerating) cold and continue to enjoy my easter break in the sun
