I am thinking about doing my research project on the anti-LGBT posters that were placed around campus recently. These posters not only violated UWF's advertising policies, but they also made alarge group of people on campus feel unwelcome and unsafe. My actual art piece would be a digital drawing similar to the poster, but instead of spreading hate it will spread love. I will use the same basic setup of the poster, but instead of belts in the hands, I will put flowers, and instead of a cowering child I will put a happy one.

3D Modeling - I haven't worked with 3D modeling much in the past, I played around in Blender before but I really didn't know what I was doing. I chose to do something fairly simple since I'm new to this, so I chose a coffin. I will admit that I had to look up how to do a few things but I like the end result. There was an issue with the details being too small, but that was resolved and it looks great. I had also never worked with soldering before so that was an interesting experience. Luckily I was able to get the lights to work on my first attempt so I was proud of that.
My net.art project was circus themed, but with a twist. All of the performers were nude women. On each page I showcased a performer with a title and a small blurb. Under the initial description I wrote something mildly to blatantly sexist, but I crossed it out. This choice was a rejection of the things people usually say about women behind their backs whether they mean it the way they sound or not.

I made three linked webpages using the program "Brackets." It was my first time experimenting with coding, so it was fairly interesting. I had a little trouble trying to figure out how to use a picture as a link, but I used text instead and the rest went smoothly. I was also unsure of the root folder situation, so I put all the .html's and photos I used in one folder. The pages seemed to work fine and all three are linked to one another. All in all this was a fun experience and I enjoyed learning something new.
