Today's #ds106 Daily Create was the idea of my friend Ben, who loves the Daily Create. He wanted us to create a board game about ds106.

 

tdc.ds106.us/tdc846/

 

MOOCOPOLY is the game of teaching massively, openly online and includes the range of players from ds106, CCK08 to the Stanford trio, MITx, and more. Take your chance and many you will have community or not.

 

See more about the making of this monster cogdogblog.com/2014/05/03/moocopoly-the-game/

   

Starring Sebastian Thrun and all those xMOOCS: Udacity, Coursera, EDx (because they are the ones that get all the attention) but produced, directed and thought about by George Siemens, Alec Couros, Dave Cormier, Stephen Downes.

In honor of ds106 radio and thinking ahead to our session at Northern Voice 2011, this retro mic was suggested as a prop-- it is pretty much a plastic piece of junk- it does record audio, with noise, and it wont work at all streaming with Nicecast. But it does have a light on top.

ds106 assignment: A dream staircase. (tdc.ds106.us/tdc1163/)

 

Draw a staircase, and think about your biggest dream.Draw it at the top of the staircase and then fill each step with the “steps” you’d have to take to make your biggest dream a reality.

 

My dream is/was being employed as a visual artist like game artists or concept artists. The staircase shows that I have great prerequisites, but at the end of the staircase I find/found myself unlucky, without any help, greencard, right citizenship or the right age. I have asked for help but got the same answer anywhere: if I were younger or male they would consider helping me because the industry really seeks young or male visual artists. They did not even try concealing the inherent discrimination in this. They may have thought I should be ashamed not them.

Now I feel burned out following my dreams. Next week I start working as a data entry clerk, which all the world finds appropriate for a great artist, engineer, project manager, programmer ... just because all this is placed within an elder woman.

I need the money.

2011/02/10: Change your point of view. Make a photograph from an unusual point of view today. #ds452

 

The sound of the ringing telephone down below was not the sound Conrad wanted to, or even imagined he would hear.

 

Here he was set up for the good life, living on a boat moored at Grove Harbour marinia, the life of Sonny Crocket without the guns and chases.

 

The sound of the old phone was a reminder of its place in the grand sceme that got Conrad here, the biggest game he had ever run, and which, ironically, came down to the physical wire (or what it represented) at the end of the phone line. He needed to keep it alive as part of the front of the ficticious Oak Tree Partnership, the "owner" of five other sham corporations each in turn which owned more enterprises that had filtered out the funds he had siphoned fmr Wall Street.

 

Ahh, nothing like the classic Wire scam.

 

And it had set up Conrad into the life he had dreamed of, where he could stop running, stop living under false names (well he would hang on to this one), stop having to think nine steps ahead to the other contignecies.

 

Ring.. Ring....

 

Damnit, that meant only one thing.

 

Mikey.

 

This was the emergency number he gave his little brother for exactly that. So Conrad was not exactly excited to find out what jam his kid brother had gotten himself into.

 

Lifting the hatch down into the cabin, Conrad waved at Ricardo, his neighbor out for his daily poodle walk.

 

With the phone on its fifth ring, Conrad had no time for the usually bullshit chat with the supposed ex Mayor of Santiago de Cuba.

 

Nestling deeply into the leather chair next to the compact offiice area, Conrad picked up the phone, marveling a moment at the wonder of a traditional telephone, tethered to the world by a line, a huge anacronism in the day of mobile phones. But there was a puremess of POTS (Plain Old Telephone Service) in that it worked when the power went out, when the winds blew like howling hyenas, and without even needing electricity.

 

"Hello, Mikey," he said.

 

Pause.

 

"Because you are the only one who should be calling me. What's going on? Where are you?"

 

....

 

Conrad waited, Mikey was not the quickest with unrolling the facts.

 

"Arizona? What is the name of that town again?"

 

....

 

"That's a real town name? Geezus. It's on your delivery route, right?" What kind of trouble did you get into."

 

....

 

And so slowly, Mikey stammered out his situation. Conrad could not be surprised, with all the ways the world had taken care of his innocent brother.

 

"So she sent you the photos? They definitely show your face?"

 

....

 

"Oh Mikey, you got nailed. She has your home address, and the last thing you need is Doreen getting a surprise envelope in the mail."

 

On his iPhone, Conrad was quickly looking up an address in Flagstaff.

 

"Okay, Mikey. Go to this address in San Francisco Street in Flagstaff- its an offive where I will wire you the cash. Pay her off and get home."

 

....

 

"What's going to happen? You don;t need to know, Mikey. Just tell me about this woman..."

 

...

 

"Uh huh, got it, White Toyota.... red hair.... plays card at Spotsman's Lodge"

 

....

 

"Don't worry, kid, that's what I am here for. Now get your ass to Flagstaff, pay off the bitch, and head home. Call me when you get there.... yes, I love you too."

 

Sigh. There goes the nice stretch of retirement in paradise. Conrad would be packing the gear, and heading to west Buttfart Arizona, and see about a little game of Get Back with some floozy who fleeced his brother woth the oldest trick in the game.

 

But.... Conrad wanted to play this differently. An inkling of a plan set in his brain like a fertile seed, one that would grow and blossom during the long drive west.

 

In this game, the expected revenge would never happen, but the bitch who messed with his brother would not know it. It would be the ultimate set up that was never delivered.

 

The idea of playing a new game that was not the old game that was not even the real game was intriguing Conrad.

 

He was most alive when he was curious with a plan inside of a plan inside of plan.

 

And so, he hung up the old phone, pulled out the old worn travel bag, and looked up where the hell "Burns, Arizona" really was.

 

He was back from retirement.

 

Again.

 

next...

 

This expresses "loud" to me.

To create this I used the Fresh Paint app for the background, a sailing ship from the app Little Artist and then I combined it all in Photoshop.

is now broken pottery and I had to buy a new one. I thought I am old enough to allow me a teapot with flowers and birds on it.

  

For The Daily Create tdc2029, we were asked to create a mystic bridge. Here's mine.

Miles was my model for today's #ds106 dailyshoot, and I promise none of my children were harmed in the making of this static image.

ds106 assignment "Your favourite moment in the past week." tdc.ds106.us/tdc1158/

 

One of my favorite moments in the past week was when I thougt that I would like doing some glitch art with a traditional medium.

My favorite moment this week may be that this ds106 dailycreate gave me the motivation to create the Traditional Glitch and share it with some friends :)

This one is not fully traditional because I used a zigzag filter on the original, which only consists of straight lines.

Hi Ben, this is for your birthday and shows you making some good music. Maybe your father and Superman/ Spiderman will join in later :)

Like this, HAPPY BIRTHDAY BEN!

 

(It’s Ben’s Birthday! Send Him a Photo That Screams HAPPY BIRTHDAY - a ds106 dailycreate)

 

What comes to mind? The book? A breeze? Take a photo of whatever this phrase inspires you to do.

ds106 dailycreate 793

 

With the phrase I associate nice noise more than a picture, which is why I took a photograph of what makes nice noise.

 

Make a magical mosaic mask.

I first drew the mask and when editing the photo of the drawing I applied some effects. Now it is neither digital nor analog.

Mouse Meme

We’ve all had enough of cats. And dogs. But what about mice? Create a “mouse meme” that is sure to go viral. The DS106 legal staff advises you to avoid any reference to Disney and its stranglehold on pop cultural mice. Feel free to ignore our legal advice. ds106 dailycreate tdc1039: tdc.ds106.us/tdc1039/

 

I used the PNGs from a brush download which you can find here: www.graphicxtras.com/mice-brushes-photoshop.htm

 

ds106 assignment "Junk Mail art" (tdc.ds106.us/tdc1165/)

Grab some junk mail and use it as the background for your art. Paint, colour over it, cut it up, make a collage, a storyboard. Recycle into art, damn it!

Make a shoefie. ds106 dailycreate tdc1047

(This is not for Howard, but just for me and my ds106 and flickr friends.)

 

I had to buy new winter boots. This way I am in the lucky position to decorate one of my old shoes. I would like to go out with them, (it does not matter so much in Berlin), but I am sooooooo careful to appear normal, just like most people.

Scribbler too by @quasimondo

 

a ds106 dailycreate (tdc.ds106.us/tdc1315/)

 

I used an online tool (www.zefrank.com/scribbler/scribblertoo/) to create the scribbled part and worked a bit on it with Photoshop. I only used my mouse, no tablet, which makes this nice uncertain lines.

I once took courses in physiks and you can not mind here making thoughts about time, especially concerning matter and velocity.

 

Our senses perceive time while observing changes (movement, growth, destruktion, rust). Mathematics also give changes as a result of passing time. This way I tried to display time by displaying changes/movement and numbers are always good concerning time.

I created an image with multiple exposure. In photoshop I distorted this and added numbers.

Here I am with the early portable TDM/7300 reel-to-reel tape recorder/reproducer. Full color audio was not the norm in those days, but recordings made with this Temporal Displacement Modulator produced a mildly psychedelic synesthesia.

Take a picture of a light in the dark (street lamp, moon, candle …) ds106 dailycreate tdc738

 

I did not know how difficult it is to take a picture of light when I suggested this dailcyreate. Only these relatively faint signal lights did not result in overexposed spots.

Make a picture of the light of the sun. Do not picture the sun itself. Capture the light.

 

There are some reflections from the drops of water.
