There is no great predictor of a successful ds106 course than the level of Jim Groom Art it produces—a tried and true tradition of this venerable digital storytelling course. And I can now officially assure you this cohort of students is no joke. Their work invokes the ghost of Noise Professor, and that is no small tribute.
I am a proud professor right now! And I appreciate all their artistic support while I was being kidnapped by Russians in LA and went missing only to reappear with short-term amnesia.
I know the first Jim Groom art poster I share is a bit too creepy, but it does rule. And while I haven’t read the book, or even seen the movie, I’m sure this is very wrong. But the artist, Mia Boleis, and I are both Long Islanders, and that’s why we were born to be #4life. You have to work harder Virginians!
It’s apparent from Emily Bostaph’s Jim Groom Art that she understands the stakes of #ds106. That said, and for the record, I don’t eat people. That’s a myth that got started a few semesters ago after one video assignment went bad, there’s nothing to it.
Edith the Art Freak seems to think I left my soul behind while being beaten and kidnapped by the Russians. No faith. And what’s this reference to Paul? Paul who?! Did I mention I don’t eat people?
With this Jim Groom art, it’s almost like Justin knowns me. Too close to home.
I’m beginning to think that we need to run ds106 more like an online American Idol for digital storytelling, and Shannon Grubb appears to agree that I need to be one of the judges.
Lesya’s reworked Taken poster commemorating my disappearance two weeks ago truly captures one course’s devotion to finding their professor, and I feel safer for it!
July Laszakovits “Saving Professor Groom” poster may be one of my all-time favorites, despite the fact I’m not in it. It’s yet another fun example of remix, and I love how she took the images from the Google Hangout to create this masterpiece.
And despite the fact the Sharla Hargis’s black and white photo on top of a color poster of I am Legend doesn’t necessarily jive, it’s still Jim Groom art, which is better than most all other things. Also, read the book, the movie is crap.
Landon Epperly’s Daily Create yesterday has me starring in 2001: an ITCC Odyssey 🙂
