For our Thursday we had to design a page to be able to send in to the New York Public Library (NYPL). As a class we were all tasked to create a submission to explicitly express what this quote meant to us, to be able to express in our own words and ideas about what this specific quote meant.
“How technology and creativity are powerful learning tools for inspiration, digital storytelling and design.”
This task seemed very easy but yet so difficult at the same time. I spent about an hour trying to brainstorm exactly what I wanted to do and how I wanted to express what I had in mind. After about an hour I realized something.. I am staring at said technology. The ability to have a keyboard, mouse and monitor right in front of me was definitely my inspiration to create this piece.
So with that said I took a lovely photo of the work that was right in front of me and created a slight matrix like effect to it. With a reference to the Matrix (being the blue and red pill) I wanted to show that time is definitely an illusion when it comes to creativity. With technology we were are able to access everything to be able to create what it is that we want.
This was definitely a fun project to be able to brainstorm and create something simple.
