Wrap Up Questions

1-What is your most memorable experience from this course? It could be with regards to readings, artworks or your assignments —>The most memorable experience would have been when we all went outside and created the map of how we get to class from our house using the water and food coloring. It was an assignment that really created the perfect visual of what we had been talking about and learning in class as well as allowed us to work as a team to create something.

2-Name the text that you liked the most (or that you learned most from) (or that provoked you the most). Why? —> A text that I found very interesting was the text by Ole B. Jensen titled "Erving Goffman and Everyday Life Mobility." I enjoyed it because it took something that I am very interested, travel and movement around a city, and pointed out subtleties that I had not noticed before. Next time I'm traveling I will consciously think about the person sitting next to me on the plane and whether or not I want to start up a conversation with them

3-Name one thing that you have learned from the readings (or, which text did you like the most? Why?) —> Something that I have learned over the course and all the readings in general is just how everyone interprets a city differently. A city doesn't have to be taken at face value or how the guide books describe them. They are open to your own interpretation. There is value in slowing down when looking at a city. You may not see everything but you will be able to reach deeper into a city when looking at it from a different view.

4-Which artwork/artefact/performance presented in class did you like the most (or provoked you the most). Why? —>There were many different presentations, video’s and sound bites during class that definitely enhanced the learning experience. One that sticks out in my mind was when the whole class did the chat roulette as an example of a hybrid space. It was a perfect example of what we were doing in class. It is also something that is current and popular amongst our age group. This helped everyone to be attentive and gain a better understanding to what a hybrid space really is.

5-What was your reply to the assignments? List them all and think about how to present them – as a whole – to others; as a collection, what have they contributed with to this course? —>Our assignments were to create a wiki profile of ourselves, make a subjective map of Arhus, define a hybrid space, create an audio stand, perform a .walk, and finally do create a mis-guide. The assignments were a significant part of the course. They took what we were reading about for the lectures and allowed us to be creative and apply that to our own examples. They definitely complemented what we were doing in class and facilitated further understanding.

6-Which assignment do you find most in line with the course content? Why? —> The assignment that was most inline with the course content was the mis guide to Arhus. This assignment had us take the city and look at it from a different point of view that was only our own. We were then given the opportunity to transfer that view to someone else as a loose guide for them to see the city as well. From what I got from the course it seemed to be the the assignment that en captured all the other ideas.
