Week 13 Activity

None!

Week 13 Optional EC

You can do up to 4 of your classmates Procedures from last week’s Procedural Art activity for up to 15 points each. Do 4 nicely and you could earn up to 60 points of EC! Pick any from this list of procedures, perform the procedure, document with text / image / sound / video as appropriate, and write a paragraph for each describing your experience. Discuss what you thought you’d get, what you did get, and how interesting it is conceptually and aesthetically.

  • Kyle Wadsworth’s Puzzle Video Game. – Kyle’s game only runs on PCs. If you’d got a PC, it’s fun to download it and play. In this case you won’t be “performing a procedure,” it will be more like “beta testing” the game. If you do this one, Kyle has 2 questions for you:
    1) Do you like video games? If so, what are some video games you like to play?
    2) Describe your experience. What happened? What did you like? What did you not like?
    If you do this one, please tag the post with “kyle-wadsworth” so Kyle can get everyone’s feedback next week.
