Flesh and Metal Reaction

Katherine Hayles’ “Flesh and Metal” describes the idea that the body is more than just the physical human form. The body, Hayles argues, includes not just the human form itself, but also parts that extend beyond the human form.

Self Portrait Project

For my latest Digital Techniques project, we were asked to take pictures of five objects and assemble a self portrait that we feel represents us best. Since the project does not require an actual picture of ourselves, I opted to do a self-portrait that expresses what I do the most. Below are the original photos I used.

Systems Esthetics

The mention of Kuhn’s The Structure of Scientific Revolutions hooked me from the very beginning.
