So let’s get back to the subject of ds106, because what’s really interesting about this is that it’s about trying to put all these ideas into one neat little package. It’s taking the idea of media appropriation, of user-created content and trying to shoehorn that into a classroom setting. So how’s it going? Someone mentioned the following reaction to ds106: Surprise?anger?acceptance?”art”, and if you take a look at that what it tells you is that people are uncomfortable, but that discomfort is what could possibly lead you on to the next breakthrough. Why? Because you can; you can choose to slam the Star Wars Kid’s gyrating motions, or turn it into the next trend (it’s called the “thumbs up” and “thumbs down” buttons), or you might be the one putting something out there for the world to evaluate, like we all do on ds106. Or facebook. Or Twitter. Or…
Make some art, damnit! And MOME distills the ideas surrounding ds106 and why it might work so brilliantly. Thank you!
What’s more, I am loving the work by the folks in Tokyo. You can see all their posts here—it’s brilliant stuff and below are a few highlights for me.
and again with MOME and the Triple Troll Quotes (he has been a force of nature!!!)
Did you notice it?
AND, can you understand it?
If not, BEWARE!!
Coz I NEVER am a female despite of my body born in a female form!
(I actually am a neutral-gender dude, though…)
…WELL, I’m not gonna tell you descriptions of what the words mean, coz
THEY JUST MEAN IT.
NEVER believe the person’s physical gender in respect of perceptions for gender-image.
Just see how the person behaves like, and what the person dresses like.
The physical gender worth for NOTHING but medical scenes and making love with somebody.
You are so lazy cat
When I’m working really hard at school
You are sleeping at home
