For the Neighborhood and Me project, students produced digital interactive panoramas (aka murals). Through the development of this project, students learned to use design principals and graphic elements, such as repetition, hierarchy, texture, color, and transition. The student murals curated an experience of walking the paths of the places on the map, and the textures of the experience at a street level. Students were challenged to see what kind of juxtapositions or narratives they can create through these “linearesque” audio/visual presentations. They were taught to use Vuvox, an online application that allows you to cut and collage images, embed video and audio, and create stand-alone multimedia panoramic experiences. They were encouraged to apply the graphic principles learned and perhaps integrate some of the styles of collage artists and designers. Check out the murals by clicking on the entries below.
