Visual Assignment 24 – Troll quotes brief
Find an image of a well known figure, add to it a famous quote by someone related in some way to the figure in the image and then attribute the quote to a third, related figure. From the official site: How It Works
- Get a picture of someone people idolize. Obi Wan Kenobi, Barack Obama, Captain Kirk — any beloved public figure will do.
- Slap on a famous quotation from a similar character from a different book or movie. Pick something close enough that a non-fan might legitimately confuse them. If you’re using Captain Picard from Star Trek: The Next Generation, for example, you’ll probably want to grab a quote from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Babylon 5 or Battlestar Galactica.
- Attribute the quotation to a third character, from yet a third universe. This way, nothing about your image is correct, and you’re trolling fans of all three characters at once.
A bug hunt life
While not being my all-time favourite Pixar film, A bug’s life was the inspiration for my Visual Assignment 24 – Troll quotes. Actually, it was a combination of A bug’s life and Bill Paxton’s freaked out Pvt. Hudson in Aliens that inspired my attempt to troll fans of Pixar, Toy Story and the Alien(s) film franchise. I’m not quite sure if my troll was successful.
Pleased to meet you. My name is Rowan and this is my introduction to the 2012 Spring/Summer iteration of DS106. Thanks for letting me be a part of it.
Concept for an interactive device that demonstrates how slope of the land under classified vegetation determines the severity of a bushfire.
The learner can increase or decrease the angle of the upslope and downslope. As a result the severity of the approaching bushfire will change. The bushfire’s severity is based on a premise of the fire’s intensity doubling for each 10° rise in slope.
Concept for an interactive device that demonstrates how the distance of vegetation from a building determines the level of bushfire risk to the building. The learner can select a vegetation type, increase or decrease the distance of vegetation from the building and increase or decrease the angle of the slope. The Bushfire Attack Level (BAL) rating, description and level of bushfire risk for permutations of the vegetation, distance and slope variables are displayed based on learner interaction. The BAL rating, description and level of bushfire risk to building is based on data from the Australian Standard AS 3959–Construction of buildings in bushfire-prone areas.
