week 13 wrap up

my final project will be an exploration of my character meskeen aka mo, through the written, visual, and sound mediums. my written piece, a poem, will be the centerpiece and reference point of the other work created. throughout this course i have referenced to mo’s abilities, character traits, and general essence, but i have yet to actually¬†just show her in action, so that is what i hope to due in the poem.

so far i have decided the setting of the poem, and thus the rest of the pieces, will be Fredericksburg Virginia. specifically as it relates to its history with slavery, and the on going relationship of black people with the city. i have not yet decided if i will be referencing the city explicitly or just using it for inspiration. for instance, the pictures i will be taking for the project’s visuals will be taken on the UMW campus and in downtown Fred. the sounds i will be recording will be based in Fred.

i feel confident with what i have planned so far for the project. i know the content i will create (poem, photo, sound) and the software i will use (photoshop, garageband), all that is left now is to make it happen.
