Just finished my first case study today. Well, it was my first intentional, purposeful case study. One of the most important things I learned in doing the fieldwork and documentation of my case study is that site-based learning is one of the most perfectly matched activities to my interests and preferred learning styles.
This initial assignment activity has become a personal mission. I am fully committed to continuing my dedication to the Rapids Theatre Restoration project. First, I will further develop my research and documentation of the past, present, and future work associated with the restoration. Also, I will volunteer in traditional avenues such as hands-on labor when tasks arise and in specialty avenues such as designing education materials to help promote the program.

Mapping & Place: Before taking this class I hadn't considered Google Earth an art making tool or the derive an art form. I learned that I had not spent nearly enough time seeing and hearing my world around me.
Video became my art making tool of choice during this online studio. I spent many late nights of endless fun and excessive perfectionism putting still images, video clips, audio clips, and transition / animation combinations together to make just the right statement.
