Entangled Media

Assignment 1- You will submit 3 x blog posts Development (500 word minimum): Respond to what you have learned about entanglement in the first weeks. This post should demonstrate engagement with the readings (we will discuss these in class in weeks 1 and 2). You should also reflect on your own thinking about what it means to be ‘entangled’ in the world, and some ideas you explored in the work you did in pairs in the first week’s classes. Use as examples the objects/things given in class, and/or objects/things you interact with in your everyday life. You might also consider how these things are linked to bigger social, environmental or economic issues. As part of this blog post, propose the short media works you think you will make. (It’s okay if they change as you’re making them.) Two short media works: You will make at least two short media works. One of these should be in sound, and the other/s using different media. If you make more than two, they must each be a different medium. The works will be about one chosen object or thing and its relationship with other things (human or otherwise). You will show these works in class after week three, but they should be uploaded to your blog before the assignment 1 deadline. Reflection (500 word minimum): You will write a short reflection post on your blog that considers the following questions: What changed between your proposed media works and the works you ended up making? What were the affordances of the different media types for telling a story about your chosen object or thing, and what effect did this have on the kind of story you told about the object/thing? What do you think worked well about your media works? What didn’t work quite so well? What ideas and/or media making practices might you like to explore or develop in future work that explores entanglement?
