For this assignment you are supposed to talk about your favorite assignment from DS106. For this remix, you’re supposed to play that assignment backwards.
My favorite assignment for DS106 was one of the assignments I created for the class (yes, I am very narcissistic). This assignment was a mashup assignment where you take at least 3 pieces of your own work and combine them together to make one cohesive piece. I enjoyed it because it gave me an excuse to go back through my other works and see how I’ve progressed. Also, I used elements from different areas of creativity to form one really solid piece. I got in a little writing, I got a spooky ambiance sound track, and I got to read a home-made poem in the middle of it all. The remix of this assignmet was to play it backwards, so here’s that too.
Truth be told, I made a bunch of mash-up content to practice. This just happened to be one of the pieces, and I thought it was so good and experience so valuable to me that I would share it as an assignment for others. It really does help to pull elements from different genres of creativity into one project, because you get to make something with a much higher production value than time normally allows for these assignments.
