Self Interview Questions
In front of the built-in camera on a computer (personal or lab) record this interview as you ask and answer the questions below. Try to answer the question as honestly as possible. Notice if your awareness of the camera alters your instincts of censorship in your answers. Are you thinking about who might see this video? Does this alter the way that you answer? How vulnerable are you willing to be?
Listen to your questions and answer them thoughtfully. Try to learn something new about yourself by following your own rabbit trails.
- Why do you want to make moving images?
- What matters to you as a person?
- What kind of person would you say you are?
- How would you describe your artistic style?

- Define magic.
- What word makes you smile anytime you say it?
- What are the components you need to satisfy a sense of unity with a group of people?
- What makes you angry?
- What have you read that has really stuck with you?
- What makes a good image?
- What is a memory you recall often?
- Why that memory?
- What are you trying to say with your art?
- What are you willing to confess right now?

I mentioned this in class the other day… saw it and it really got me thinking about the usefulness (nor not) of automation in daily life.
Here is the folder with all of the photos from our demo if anyone wants to look back over them. You can open them in camera raw or lightroom to see the meta data and exposure details!
I thought this was interesting. Sometimes I forget the history of how all of this began.
Here are the light painting images from the other night!
So, if you aren;t looking at Vice regularly, you should start. Its a great site that talks about current events, but also covers subjects that might be less familiar to you. For instance, I just watched a documentary on Vice about a clinic in Indonesia that is treating lung cancer with heavy smoking! Super interesting. It will make your world just a little bigger every time you explore the site.
Here are the best photos from their site from last year. Some of them are really nice. Lets talk about them in class!
