Blog #1: Technological Artifact

After perusing the website for the Media Archaeology Lab, choose a technological artifact that you feel defines you personally or your generation as a whole. What is it and why does it define you or your generation? Make sure to demonstrate comprehension of the MAL’s mission and our class discussion from Week 1 in your writing.

See your instructor’s sample post and make sure you have read the posting guidelines.

Blog #2: History of Collage & Photomontage

Choose a specific artwork that was reproduced in one of your readings for the week (see class schedule) and reflect on the following questions: What do you know about the artist and their working methods? How do you think the technologies of their time influenced their creative choices? How does their choice of tools and materials affect the way you interpret the composition? Make sure to use relevant vocabulary from the Elements and Principles of Design reading as well. Repost the image you choose to write about and make sure to cite according to the Blog Guidelines.
