Smartphones and Open, Collaborative Image Making
This is a presentation that I gave at the Art + Design Symposium, which was held at the Dunedin School of Art (New Zealand), 16-17 Oct. 2015. I uploaded the slides to SlideShare and embedded the file below (you can view and download the PDF file from SlideShare if you wish by clicking the “in” button). The slides include clickable Web addresses to the source of the examples that I used in the presentation.
Of course, like the PDFs of lectures we upload for students to review, the slides provide the illustrations, but not what was said. So, I recorded my talk using a simple audio recording app on my iPhone 5, which I held as I was speaking. I then uploaded the recording to Soundcloud and embedded the file below. If you start playing the audio and then click the double arrow button beside the “in” button above, you can hear the talk while viewing the slides full screen. It’s almost as good as being there.
I included links in the descriptions of the Soundcloud and SlideShare files pointing to one another and to this blog post. This way, people who find the audio recording or slides will also be able to find this post, which puts the two together and includes this discussion. I will also share the link to this post via my Twitter and Instagram accounts. My aim here is to demonstrate, in keeping with the main message of the presentation, that it is easy to get more value from our work by sharing it openly with others using social networks at no cost (aside from a bit of our time). This allows us to extend the reach of our work and to connect with other people with shared interests. Thanks for visiting my blog. I hope you find the talk and examples interesting.
