First and foremost, I would like to admit that this was rushed, while also asserting that it is done to the best of my ability given the time I had, which was limited by deadline and further limited by poorly timed illness. These photos are not the most creative, I will readily admit, but I am pretty happy that I was able to get this done at all.
The Media Arts equipment checkout counter. Unremarkable, but it has every piece of hardware a media arts student might need, and the man behind the counter is pleasant.
The blue-wall studio in the Media Arts building, just around the corner from where the last pic was taken. It surprised me when I first saw it, as one wouldn’t ordinarily expect such a large and expensive piece of equipment to be at a community college’s disposal. I took several versions of this picture, and the lighting wasn’t satisfactory in any of them, I apologize for the glare.
The Center for Student Engagement in the center building. I’ve yet to spend more than ten seconds inside myself, so I don’t have anything valid to say about it except “it exists.”
The Main Art Gallery! My favorite area on campus. I visit it every time a new piece goes up. I’m not exactly an art lover, but I am a very meditative person, so things like browsing art galleries, museums and aquariums are very enjoyable for me.
The Art-O-Mat. While I find the idea and design of the machine amusing and whimsical, I never liked vending machines of any sort much. Too many stolen quarters as a kid ruined them for me.
The Reference Counter in the Library on the second floor of the center building. I can see it from where I am sitting right now, actually. I never needed to call on this resource in particular, so I don’t have a lot to say on this one.
The silver sculpture outside of the Health and Wellness building. As my previous exposition about the art gallery may suggest, i enjoy the sculpture art placed throughout campus, and this streamline structure is no exception. I am told it sits upon a time capsule, though I’m unsure if this is true.
Mary Jo Kreindal’s office. I had run across her before since her office is in the main art gallery, but interestingly I had no idea that her office was there until now. I’ll chalk that one up to my poor memory.
The Media Creation Lab. That is where I am typing, or from your perspective, had typed this post. Without it I would not have gotten this finished in time, so I’m very grateful that it is here.
Judy Gates’ office. This was a pain in my flank to find. Nobody I asked seemed to have any clue where it might be, so this one took the longest to get a picture of.
The Commons area in the Media Arts building. On days I have classes i generally spend two to three hours in here between Multimedia 101 and Multimedia 105. There’s always someone pleasant or helpful to talk to around, so it is so far my favorite place to just unwind after nine hours on campus, and maybe get some stuff done as well.
The flags inside the “Students First” building, better known as Building 1. I forgot this one and had to sprint up there to get this picture.
The construction shot. My time on campus the day this was posted was limited, and I could not seem to find even a single turkey or any construction besides this sign on a staircase. I couldn’t get a decent shot of the construction itself, so I hope a sign on said construction will do.
If I forgot anything on this assignment, I sincerely apologize. Circumstance forced me to do this very last minute, and to my knowledge it is complete. I hope the quality of the images is satisfactory, as I don’t see much blur or noise in them. To be frank I am hoping my language skills will help make up for the lack of creativity in these pictures. If you have read this far, thank you for taking a few minutes to learn something about me and how I see my surroundings.
