We created a power point for our visual as we researched our natural disaster. The natural disaster we researched were sinkholes. A sinkhole is a natural disaster where a giant hole forms in the ground. It’s usually caused by collapse in the surface layer, erosion, or underground water. Sinkholes can be natural or man made. Sinkholes affect the hydrosphere, geosphere, atmosphere, and biosphere. From this we learned that all of the Earth systems are connected. If something bad happens to one it probably affects another one in a bad way. Our understanding of environmental science can aid in handling natural disasters because we know how the earth and its systems work and why these things happen. From that we can figure out what to do when these things happen. To create a sustainable future, we should cut down on trash that’s created, we can continue to find different modes of transportation and keep our underground updated by fixing things like water mains.
For our Q4 benchmark we focused on the Cycles of Matter and why it’s a problem within ecology. Our video shows where this problem happens, how we affect the different cycles and what we can do to stop it. What stood out to me is the things that affect the cycles. Everyday things that I had no idea affected our lives. I’m curious to know if this issue will get better or worse.
The sculpture I chose to use for my Electric Art Project was my tripod. I chose my tripod because I like taking pictures and I wanted to make something light up other than using my camera. I only do two things, and that is running and taking photos. I thought that my tripod would be perfect because I use it to take my pictures and I wanted to do something other than talking about running.
What inspired my art was that I really liked the quote. What inspired the design of my art was the logo of this college called “The New School”. Their logo was a red background and the name of their school was written in white with two white lines under it. My artwork was the quote “Justice Will Prevail” with a white background , red letters, and two black lines under it
I chose the location I chose because no one else’s street art was in that area and I thought it would be easy to notice.
This project changed my perception of art by telling me that art can be anything and nothing is wrong when you're drawing art.
This project changed my perception of art I see as I travel around the city by making me look around to see different art while i'm on the street.
The first slide is how overusing the internet can get me distracted from important things. Getting distracted by it causes you to be online more and also a bigger chance of making a mistake that you will regret.
The second slide is how I try to be positive online and post appropriate things. I do this so people can maybe take me as an example and be positive and post appropriate things because people can be watching. I like to run too so maybe they could also post about a hobby they really like too.
The last slide is titled “think”. I want people to think of what their about to post online before they post it. I want them to know that anyone could be watching them and it could stay online forever.
Online I appear as a girl who has a lot social media and is associated with programs and sports such as cross country and Project Flow at the Fairmount waterworks.I think people perceive me as a busy person who looks really nice. They might perceive me as busy because i'm in a lot of programs.I consider who can be watching what I post online and people who see it might not like what I post, so i'm cautious on what I post online. A pro from sharing online is that you can get yourself out there. Some cons are that people can stalk you and you may post the wrong thing and important people might not like that.
