Week 2

Your first assignments due for September 8th and 9th are....

Part 1
Find 8 websites to discuss in class. They can be good or bad, big or small, Flash or HTML, whatever. They do not need to be art related. Basically we just need to start talking about sites like we do about photos or paintings so that we will have an easier making decisions about our own  sites.

Part 2
Bring examples of your work to class. This is not a crit! I don't get to see your work very often because I'm usually down in the Foundation Lab. So this will be a way to get to know each other through our work. We will also start to see that some work looks better on white web pages or black web pages or in Flash sites or HTML sites. 

Both assignments are meant to start taking the mystery out of making a website.

Fall 2008

This semester you will be creating a blog at You will be asked to maintain the blog by uploading jpgs each week of examples of current work, adding your classmates blog addresses, posting links to interesting sites, videos and articles you find and generally sharing your creative experience here at Tyler this semester. Some of you may have facebook or myspace pages, but I want this to be geared more toward your artistic network rather than your friend network.

When you upload an image of a project, make sure that you add a few lines describing your thoughts on the project. If you leave comments on someone else's blog, please keep them clean and cruelty free.
