I’m enjoying the MOOC “The Future of Storytelling” (#StoryMOOC).
This little video is my response to the Creative Task for Chapter 4 (“Inspirational Week”)
The proposition for the task was this:
Take a camera, be it you mobile phone, a webcam… Introduce yourself to the other StoryMOOCers, telling us who you are where you are . . . → Read More: #StoryMOOC : My Creative Task for Chapter 4
This is like an inventory of things I do to express myself. I don’t know why I nee to do a catalogue, but it feels right – like emptying a closet before you reorganize it.

some passing whim or . . . → Read More: Reporting Life: Creating blog musings, scribbles and other artifacts…
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.
I get emails from Club Devo,and see snippets of mutated art from Mark M., photos from their irreverent, young new wave days, and so many artifacts of . . . → Read More: DEVOlving: musings on art, music, and creative synthesis…
In Week 4 of the MOOC E-Learning + Digital Cultures, one of the “Perspectives on Education” articles asks the question “Is Google Making Us Stupid?”.
I must admit that I’ve sometimes asked myself a question very similar to this. I’ve asked myself “Am I losing my short-term memory?” or “Am I losing my ability to . . . → Read More: E-learning and Digital Cultures, Week 4: Is Google making us stupid? #edcmooc

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.
What do you think?

The MOOC I’m taking, E-Learning + Digital Cultures, continues to unfold in front of me, gradually showing me new perspectives and more detail. But it’s not for the impatient…
For me, being in a MOOC has felt like being seated inside a vast, unlit stadium where you can hear other attendees whispering and you can . . . → Read More: The Long Hello – Meditating on #edcmooc, Gardner Campbell, and eLearning
Every few years, I go through a “music phase”, where I feel inspired to pick up my acoustic and learn a new chord or two, or try to learn a tune on our little Casio keyboard. It feels good to explore a different kind of expression, even as a periodic novice.

Here’s a link to a new gallery on this site – a collection of personal drawings or collages that I’ve done since 1998.
If I draw, it can be immediate, messy and expressive, like the manic scribbles of an angry child. That feels good.
However, collage from found commercial images is my favourite method. I . . . → Read More: Gallery-2557: Personal Drawing and Collage
Today, I enjoyed a visit and stimulating discussion with one of my earliest art school teachers, John Wertschek, currently an Associate Professor at the Emily Carr University of Art and Design in Vancouver.
I suppose that many of John’s former Foundation students would probably agree that he has, in one way or another, challenged them . . . → Read More: The weight of a Dragon; the position of a Rock.
