Project 3:

    Culture Update: “Emblem” & Concept Remake
    • Due: 10-Dec; 1500 words, 35 points

Our heuretic premise is that it should be possible to use the wide image principle as a way to make a new work (the widesite). Our minimum claim is that making a widesite provides a significant learning experience, within humanistic commitment to self-knowledge. The maximum claim is that people who know their wide image may use it to make decisions and solve problems in their professional and personal lives.

One Response to “Praxis for Project 3”

  1. drawing from in class references, as we have previously discussed as a class, be thinking about “Be kind Rewind” for this part of the project.

    Mike perfectly represents “ficelle” as a character that reflects the values of the whole community.

    The other way you could think about it is from the event of the community coming together to create a film. That specific event revealed a lot about the community and their perspective.

    Think of when you were younger. What do you remember as community events that stick out in your mind? I’m sure a lot of you had 4th of July Block parties, or something big that happened where a lot of people became involved. PTA fundraisers/bake sales, traveling carnivals, etc.

    Remember community can stretch to what you want it to be. Ulmer doesn’t define it necessarily as “neighborhood”.

    This could be something like the children sports league you may have participated in, a church group, or girl/boy scouts.
