DEVOlving: musings on art, music, and creative synthesis…

Yeah – I’m going through a DEVO phase again. I listen to their music all the time. Their voices and sounds are familiar, like visiting an old neighbourhood.

Lost and Found, in a MOOC…

For an assignment for the MOOC, eLearning and Digital Cultures, I created my first Prezi… It’s my little abstract reaction to the bewilderment of feeling lost inside a 40,000 member Massive Open Online Course.
