Creative Remix Reflection

The initial idea I had for my creative remix project was to make a video or slideshow version of my Black Panther/Black Lives Matter essay. Focusing on the music impacts which both movements created. Due to the fact that I was working individually I decided to take a different take on my project. I realized that I didn’t have enough time to create a project which had sound or videos. I decided to stick with the slideshow idea and instead write about some media which helped give the Black Lives Matter movement more attention.

In order to give my audience some background information about the BLM movement, the first two pages were strictly about its history and founders. The reason behind the #BlackLivesMatter hashtag coming around was, as a response to Trayvon Martin’s murder. Patrisse Cullors, one of the movement’s founders, had brought this hashtag to social media. This is when I would go and show quick facts about each founder, since this project was meant to be presented to someone who may not know a thing about BLM.

I had chosen this form of a medium since it would be very clear for any audience. With a slideshow there are many opportunities. I was able to add images to every slide to fit the description of what I had been talking about. An example of this would be when I chose to present how the song “The Bigger Picture”, brought attention to the movement. I chose to place an image of the song cover in order for the audience to have a better understanding of what I was talking about. I knew it was important to choose a topic which would be easy for me to find information on, but also attract my audience’s attention. With thai medium I was able to customize to my liking. To make it simpler for me, I chose a template on Canva which would fit the theme of my topic. Since I was writing about Black Lives Matter, a template with black and yellow coloring would fit in since these colors have been used to represent the movement. When visiting the official Black Lives Matter website, these are the colors that will be seen. 

Sticking to a multimodal mode would allow me to use images when converting the points I had made in my essay, into slides. Remediating the ideas which brought attention to the party would allow me to dig deeper into each point I had made in my essay. In my essay I briefly brought up the use of the hashtag, but in the remix I was able to give deeper information behind its impacts. The multimodal mode gave me a chance to change things around which I think made it simpler. Funding the right images wasn’t really hard since I already had an idea of what I wanted for each slide. Only thing I would’ve done differently if I did this again, is incorporating even more images, in order to make it more hands-on.

I like the idea of sharing the project with a space outside of the classroom but, I don’t think it’s ready. I know I could have added more aspects which brought attention to the movement. Or at least furthering my thoughts for the three ideas I chose, like adding more than one slide for each. If I decide on putting it out there for the public view, I definitely need to work on it more. The thing that stopped me from making it better was my lack of knowledge in the tech sense. My initial idea was to make a video where I can add sounds, like the voice of George Floyd saying “I cant breathe”, or instead of quoting Lil Baby’s lyrics I could’ve actually uploaded clips. I started to think that maybe working independently wasn’t so easy for me, and I had to stick to a simpler version. If I ever want to make this public, I will definitely have to take the time to learn these new skills. If only I had started earlier I could have taken the time to make my remix better.

Creative Remix Reflection

Doing a remix of my old work was something very different, something I could put my own spin on. Now the difference between choosing the between projects was more of the creativity to it based on the information that I have researched and put together. Turn an old piece of writing from an earlier project and make it into something new and more interesting to look at. In the end I decided on doing my creative remix project on the Black Lives Matter Movement, scoping in on the effects such a massive movement had on the press/media of society. BLM’s focus has been less about changing specific laws and more about fighting for a reordering of society wherein Black lives are free from systematic dehumanization. The movement’s measurable impact on the political and legal landscape is undeniable. The BLM movement has succeeded in transforming how Americans talk about, think about, and organize for freedom.

I believe using a presentation on slides or PowerPoint is a more effective method of spreading your information to an audience. Additionally, I want my topic not to feel dry and boring. It is a serious topic and there is a lot of information given that would make people feel overwhelmed at once. Especially college students being one myself I know that they definitely do not want to read a bunch oof words in a presentation and would want to look at their phones instead. With that idea in mind, I opted to go for something that can be more appealing to my younger audience, being videos of past and current events of my topic. I want my audience to realize how impactful the Black Lives Matter movement was so much that it was covered over several news channels and broadcast that contained thousands of protestors rallying together. They say the phrase is a demand for equal treatment and an end to racism – because the lives of black people are just as important as those of others.

Sharing my work with others is the biggest part of the remix project. I am not too great with technology, so I went with a more effective approach of a PowerPoint with slides to demonstrate my knowledge of the topic I chose. Sharing a presentation outside a classroom would prove to be rather difficult but I can use it to spread awareness of the Black Lives Matter movement on social media platforms that are used every single day. Having open platforms to spread awareness is the best way for me to use my remix project to inform the public on my topic. I can only hope it sparks activity in other people to make a change for the better of society and improve the relationship between all races. My research can become someone else’s building blocks to a movement, which is my goal for sharing this project to the public.

Overall, I enjoyed this project and what it had to offer in terms of creativity and design. I was able to return to an old project and dive deeper into a subtopic of my choice and create a new project from it, a remix. Choosing the topic and doing research was not as complicated as my topic had been narrowed down and I knew what I had to focus on. Now choosing how to portray that information was the biggest challenge I faced as my lack of experience with technology began to show. I didn’t know how to go about using a program creating other types of media other than what I was familiar with, PowerPoint. Picking a medium and knowing what I was going to do with it I began to form my presentation to appeal to my audience and hope they take something from it. Black Lives Matter is a very well-known topic, but I always wondered just how much people actually knew about it. I wanted to express how big the movement is and what they are trying to accomplish in the end. I can only hope my presentation can be shown to anyone with creative ideals to turn it into something even bigger for the future and maybe a place in the movement itself.

Final Reflection

I learned a lot from this semester. Especially when we were doing research for the projects. Of the projects that we had done, two of them needed resources and citations in the essays. The process of finding resources made me remember my history class from last semester, where we needed to analyze resources and choose the best one for the writing assignment. I got more exercise with researching and got more familiar with finding the best source. It can help me in future essays because I know where to find sources and which one is reliable. I also learned that we can find resources on Wikipedia’s citation page. It is fast to find related sources. The essays I wrote this semester were different from the ones I wrote last semester. But I got to explore different types of essays and learned their structures through writing. 

One of the works I am proud of is the Seven Day Log of Wikipedia. It is a process of learning a new thing and experiencing something I had not touched before. I had always known Wikipedia as an open editing page for everyone. But with the log, I made an account and recorded my activities with Wikipedia there. I am proud that I got to know the back end of Wikipedia. With the more I worked with Wikipedia, I got a better understanding of the problems of Wikipedia. There is gender bias shown in the pages but there are people who fight for a change. As for project 2, we were required to write a Wikipedia page for red-name women. Even if our work got deleted, I felt we did something significant and were a part of the revolution to fight for change.                                                                                                                                                                                                     

One project that I feel is the most challenging is Project 3, Creative Remix. I decided to do it in a group to create a podcast. I had never created a podcast before. Since it is a group project, there are a lot of different opinions from each other. The script that we wrote, we made a lot of changes. It was either one person who felt it was too dry or another person who felt it sounded weird. Also, many of the writings were too formal which is not a good fit when speaking out. And the script was just the beginning. The hard part was when we tried to record it. There are problems with tone, pronunciation, stumble, and volume. We couldn’t record the whole podcast in one try. We need to separate it into five sections and piece it together in the end. But it was a good prior experience if I had to do another podcast for a project next time.

Creative Remix Reflective Essay

My creative remix was a podcast of the Black Panthers Party, the context of the work is that I was giving the listeners and my guest an introduction to the Black Panther’sParty. I wanted my work to give listeners an incentive and a newfound interest in learning more about a seemingly buried topic. I hope that it can spread awareness of this topic and remind people that this part of our history, the Black Panthers Party, was a major pillar for programs that we do not think twice about. That is if I publicly publish this, aside from Blogs@Baruch, and I believe my anxiety would probably never let me do that. Even then I think the history of the BPP still lingers around our culture, even if the government tried to dismantle it, the beliefs and aspirations of the party still linger to this day. It is part of our music, art, and fashion. 

I chose to do a podcast because recently, I have been listening to a lot of podcasts, from an array of topics such as scary stories, commentary, and motivational podcasts. There are some podcasts that I don’t even know what their genre is, but it’s nice to listen to them while I’m preoccupied with other work. So with this in mind, when Prof. Perry told us we can do a podcast, I really wanted to apply it to the BPP. I had many ideas, I wanted some microphones, with some music in the background and some good sound quality. Sadly my dreams of a perfect podcast kinda went out the window when I found out how much it costs to have high-quality production microphones. Then I had to move on to picking a guest for this project. I had a couple of friends in mind that I wanted to ask, but the more I thought about who to ask, the funniest image came to my head, and that was my brother. With a lot of convincing and maybe some coercion, he agreed to be part of my podcast. With a rough idea of the direction of the podcast and my special guest, all I had to do was write my script. It wasn’t really a script but it was more of an outline or targets I wanted to talk about during the podcast. I wanted the podcast to sound and be the most normal and natural as it could be, but starting off the podcast we experienced some problems, the music was not really helping the podcast and I was scared about having copyright problems so we decided to remove it, as my brother and I started to record, it became very amusing to do this project. 

Using my phone to record, we had multiple attempts at recording and I had multiple test trials of how to get the recording from my phone to my computer. Sadly, with not too much time on my side, I was not able to really edit the recording, I did cut some parts from the beginning and end since it was dead air. So after reviewing my options, I came up with this way of transferring my recording to my computer, which was by emailing the recording to myself using my phone. I was worried the file would be corrupted or would not fully work but nevertheless, I was able to get the recording on my computer. But this was when the problem came in, that was that blogs at Baruch were not letting me post the file. One of my other peers also had the same problem, even when I tried sending the recording through Black Board it wasn’t working. Luckily Prof. Perry allowed me to play the recording loudly to the class, afterwards, I was able to email it to Prof. Perry through of Outlook. I don’t really know why my recording was not supported by Blogs@Baruch, but I was able to get by. 

After a lot of thinking, I still think I don’t want to publish my podcast to the public, the idea of putting this on the internet and keeping it there kinda weirds me out. Maybe if my work was of higher quality, I would want to post it, but this podcast is something I would rather keep private. I think of this podcast more as a funny moment, and a fun project that my brother and I both worked on. My brother too also thinks I should not post it since he thinks this experience was embarrassing.

Final Reflection

From my own experience, the writing for this semester is completely different compared to the English T class from last semester. The biggest change is the topic and tone of the essay changes from focusing on narrative to a more research and academic tone, which is something I am struggling with for a long time. Lack of confidence is one of my big problems in writing, I often worry about if I am structuring my essay correctly, such as if my evidence fits my argument, or how my general tone is presented to the audience. Professors often say that college essays had much more freedom compared to high school writing, in which students are asked to jump out from writing in the immobilized outline. The meaning of freedom in writing is different for people like me, it meant I’m more likely to lose my focus in writing. This semester is different, the professor explained the brought argument of the writing topic and left a big room for students to develop their own individualized arguments. I still lack confidence in writing, but the professor’s advice and recognition greatly encouraged me in writing. If you ask me what I learned this semester, I would say the importance of confidence in writing.

I was satisfied with the outcome of this semester. Especially for the last remix project where we are asked to recreate the previous two projects on Black Panther Party or Wikipedia gender bias into the medium piece. My group decided on the podcast as our medium to perform to audiences, which is something I have never tried before. The time we spent on learning new things is way more than the time we actually spent on doing our project. The challenge and the outcome were equivalent, the more we struggled on producing it, the more satisfaction we felt when we heard the professor appreciating our work. But even so, I still believe that there is a big room for improvement.

There are challenges throughout this semester, it’s hard for me to transaction from writing narrative essays to academic-based research essays. Especially when I have no prior knowledge of the research topic, such as the Wikipedia gender bias. The research process for gender bias issues and women in red on Wikipedia is where I struggled the most. My experience with Wikipedia before is only based on research, which means I had never opened the discussion section nor accessed any of Wikipedia’s functions other than simply looking at an individual Wikipedia page for a certain subject. Scamming through the discussion section is a new experience for me, it’s like understanding something completely new to me. It’s also hard for me to determine rather or not a page contains biased wording, I’m lack of understanding of how would a gender bias performed on a page. On the other hand, I realized that I am admitting to the fact that the bias problem is surely fixed before I found them subconsciously.

I really appreciate the encouragement and knowledge I learned this semester, Thank you a lot, Professor Perry!!!

Creative remix project reflection

             I had never imagined that one day I would perform my voice on any of the famous social media platforms before starting the creative remix project. For the creative remix project, we are asked to recreate the previous two projects we did on Black Panther Party and Wikipedia gender bias as a multimedia piece such as a podcast. The goal of his project is to see how the medium we choose will affect how the message that was presented to the audience. I participated in a group with another two students, Jing Wang, and Maggie Lin. After a long discussion, we decided to use the podcast as our multimedia piece to recreate the project of Wikipedia gender bias.

            It’s interesting that at the beginning of the discussion on the medium we were thinking about using PowerPoint or virtual essay as our medium to present the project, but we eventually decided to use podcast as our medium. The major reason is that podcasts can better connect the audience to the problem compared to just plain text, in which the tone of the speaker matters does affect how the message is brought to the audience and how much attention audiences will pay to this podcast. In addition, we believe that listening to a podcast doesn’t take much attention from the audience compared to reading a long text, which means podcast is more portable for audiences to listen to compared to concentrating on reading plain text. After that, we had a long discussion on deciding between the topic Black Panther Party or Wikipedia gender bias. We considered the notability of both topics to the public; we considered the gender bias issue on Wikipedia less notable compared to Black Panther Party. Wikipedia is a well-known online encyclopedia, but its gender bias is rarely known. After all, few people pay attention to the hardship of those female editors nor the huge difference in gender ratio when they access Wikipedia.

            We decide to split the work before starting working on the project, Jing was in charge of writing the overall script, me and Maggie will be the speaker for our podcast. At first, we decided our intended audience will be the younger generation who are more used to receiving messages from social media. For this reason, we put more attention on how to attract the attention and interest of the audiences and abandoned much information and evidence we had collected from previous projects. If no one is interested in the podcast, it’s no use no matter how much evidence and argument we brought up. For this reason, we decided to create a sense of discussion between the two speakers and brought up the statistical data and experience of female editors during the conversation as supporting detail. In our expectation, conversation and the overall tone are put first before the overall structure of evidence supporting the argument.

            It’s hard to find a balance between academic tone and interestingness, which is why we end up spending most of our time revising the script. We often found room for improvement almost every time we try to practice the script, problems like too much evidence-making with so little interaction, boring tone, and stiff sentences. The time we spent discussing how to improve the part exceeded the time we used to practice the script. We decided to make the overall tone of the podcast question and answers, we can use a question to bring up the general argument and provide evidence while answering. We also tried to involve our personal experiences and opinion in the discussion and tried to drag the overall tone away from just giving a plain and neutral argument.

            We also struggled a lot with practicing the script. Neither of us has experience before presenting a long script, in which the tone and voice often get too low and weak after a long dialogue. I and Maggie decided to split the script into five small sections so that we can pause between each section to respite and prevent tiredness due to the long dialogue. After finishing our recording, we are aware of a serious problem. No one in the group had experience with any of the editing software or any experience in creating a podcast. We are learning and editing the project at the same time. During this process, we learned how to combine different clips of audio, insert an image, and create virtual effects. Even though we learned how to use the software is not enough for us, we have no idea what we need to create a well develop podcast video. We looked through other podcast videos on YouTube, but these videos involved many complex visual effects and well develop overall structure, this is something we cannot grasp in a short time. We thought of adding background music, but we weren’t satisfied with the outcome, in which the background music drowns out our voice. Eventually, we only put a background image and some virtual effects on the audio and turned it into a simple podcast audio. Common Creative Permit is a big problem when we are browsing for cover and background images, but luckily, we still found an image that was strongly connected to our topic of gender bias.

            We uploaded our final product to YouTube eventually. YouTube is the platform we decided to publish after discussion because, from our personal experience, YouTube is the most used video platform we know. Overall, we are quite satisfied with how the podcast turned out, the tone and intonation in the conversation turn out brought out the message in a way that is easier to understand by the audiences. Especially in this era of the internet, everyone is gradually losing their patience in spending time to really understand a topic.

Reflective essay

Ethan Jusino

Prof Perry 

Eng 2150 

To introduce this reflection paper I would like to say that it was a pleasure to actually do this, turning an old piece of work into something new. The project I chose was the most recent one. Since I had a lot of the information on the woman in red that I chose, which was Celina Acosta Vice, I decided to do a podcast of my essay. Explaining it in my own words was not easy and in fact it was quite difficult because I decided to wing it by reading certain things off my essay paper which I know I did really well. 

Overall while deciding on what to use for my multimedia project I ultimately thought about who the intended audience was, I was thinking beyond the classroom so with the tone of my voice I tried to keep in informative. However I know I couldn’t do that without sounding like a robot so I did also try to slightly change the tone as well which would make it more interesting. I knew that it would be anyone that had the ability to find this podcast and listen to it on Spotify. Now the purpose was to educate people on who Celina Acosta Vice was and what her life was like, to show people that her accomplishments were very undermined because of the fact that pretty much everywhere you look to try to find her name it is either erased or forgotten. It is a nice look back in the history of women and how their achievements were almost fully forgotten based on their looks. 

Now the difference between choosing the Black Panther Party versus making the Wikipedia project was more of the creativity to it based on the information that we have researched and put together. I really decided to choose the Wikipedia project because I built that from the ground up. I had to find as much data as possible for it and then create an article for it. It was fine at first due to the fact that I had been able to use all of my information to form a nice little article even if it ultimately got deleted. Why did I choose to do a podcast though? Well the answer to that is simple, I just really wanted to sit down and talk about this person for as much time as I could. Just sitting back and relaxing with music and putting on my educational/ relaxed tone of voice really made the experience easier for me. It allowed me to focus more on actually getting the information out there rather than worrying about how I sound and what I look like. Not that I am self conscious, it just makes life easier to be faceless. I listened to podcasts before I even had the idea to make my own and it was always really interesting because of the fact that there was either one person talking or there were multiple people. After listening to around 30 hours worth of podcasts I discovered that either the independent or the ones with one or two guests worked really well. 

The benefits of using the  multimedia format allows for many different views to be explained differently. Like in my essay I talked about a small amount of her work before Acosta Vice became a politician, but in my podcast I talked more about it and how she was really struggling keeping her life stable because of the lack of opportunities. In addition, during my podcast I described why she kept going just a bit more so than in my essay because it was easier to fathom the words to speak instead of the words to type it. It really comes down to which types of media is used as well because infographics are really good as well when paired with little pieces of text as well. 

Due to how quickly this project came after the previous one I ran into multiple issues. Having run through a few scripts for the video essay that I scrapped completely because it just did not sound like me at all. I am more of a natural speaker and I sort of don’t like scripts because of the lack of variety in tone of voice. When reading off a piece of paper for me it is more robotic and less enthusiastic which is what I try to avoid entirely. My voice can be very soothing which I feel is good for a podcast, my friends also listened to the podcast and they were like my voice is really nice and the music in the background only made it better. If I had done let’s say infographics , I would have been able to include a bunch of photos related to the time period and Acosta Vice herself. However I just could not get it to work at all. So having some experience with podcasts I knew what I could include. It was not like I just did a one and done thing though because some of the audio files got corrupted so I then had to redo the entire 6 minutes of the podcast and try to remember what exactly I said word for word. So even though I had known what I was doing when it came to the podcast option, it did challenge me just enough to almost consider doing something else completely. 

Finally , to better demonstrate why I made it public on spotify is that it is a very popular streaming service and easily accessible to anyone on practically any device. I could go on my playstation and load up spotify and just play my own podcast if I want to. It is not about me though, it is about the audience of people I want to listen to and to put it simply that is anyone that likes podcasts about people. Whenever I am on the train in NYC I’ve noticed that there are a bunch of people that actually listen to podcasts and some of them I have never even heard of. This piece of work is made for anyone that really wants to view it, which can be from a college professor all the way to a highschooler that wants to learn something interesting. 

In conclusion I understand that the way I use my voice and change my tone allows for a better experience because having one voice is not really enticing. Also choosing a podcast was a smart decision by me because I had background music that really fit with my voice, it also helped me get my point across in a different way. There were many constraints when it came to it like how the platform worked and what other options I had. As well as having full control in creativity. Lastly the audience was arguably the most important because everyone is on their phone now listening to anything.

Project 3

Wikipedia is an online encyclopedia that has become a go-to source for many students, researchers, and curious individuals looking to expand their knowledge on a variety of topics. However, one of the major criticisms of Wikipedia is its gender bias and exclusion of women. The website is predominantly written and edited by men, with less than 20% of its contributors being women. This lack of representation has resulted in a bias toward male perspectives, leading to a skewed view on women in history, society, and various fields.  The gender bias on Wikipedia is evident in the way women are represented on the platform. Women’s contributions and achievements are often overlooked or downplayed, while male figures are given more attention and coverage. For example, on Wikipedia, there are more articles about male politicians, scientists, and artists than female ones. This misrepresentation can perpetuate harmful stereotypes and limit the visibility of women’s contributions in various fields.

Moreover, the exclusion of women from Wikipedia can have a significant impact on how women are perceived in society. Wikipedia is often used as a source of information by journalists, researchers, and educators, and its biased representation can influence how women are viewed and treated in these fields. When women are not included in the narrative, it can lead to their achievements being overlooked and their voices being silenced. To address this issue, various initiatives have been launched to increase the representation of women on Wikipedia. These initiatives aim to encourage more women to contribute to the platform, and to ensure that women’s perspectives and contributions are given equal weight to their male counterparts. For example, the WikiWomen’s Collaborative is a group of editors who work to increase the representation of women on Wikipedia by creating and improving articles about women. 

Feminist Theory and Gender Studies Section (FTGS)

Feminist theory encompasses a wide range of perspectives and approaches, including liberal feminism, socialist feminism, radical feminism, intersectional feminism, and postmodern feminism, among others. Each of these perspectives offers unique insights into the ways in which gender shapes our social world, and each seeks to promote greater equality and justice for women and marginalized groups in different ways. which seeks to achieve equality through legal and political reform, to radical feminism, which argues that patriarchy is deeply ingrained in society and requires a fundamental reorganization of social relations. Other strands of feminist theory include Marxist feminism, which focuses on the intersections between gender and class, and intersectional feminism, which recognizes that gender inequality is often compounded by other forms of oppression, such as racism, homophobia, and ableism.

The term “women in red” refers to a project initiated by Wikipedia aimed at improving the representation of notable women in the online encyclopedia. The project started in 2015 and is ongoing, with the aim of creating new articles or improving existing ones about women who have made significant contributions in various fields but have been overlooked in mainstream media. The name “women in red” comes from the fact that the Wikipedia entries for women who are biographies are highlighted in red. The project has gained momentum over the years, with the participation of editors from all over the world. Women in red aims to address the gender gap in Wikipedia, which has been a long-standing issue. According to a study conducted in 2011, only 16 percent of Wikipedia’s biographies were about women. The project seeks to increase that number and provide a more comprehensive and accurate representation of women’s contributions to history. Through the Women in Red project, Wikipedia hopes to inspire more women to participate in editing, and to contribute to a more inclusive and diverse online encyclopedia.

Lack of Women in Wikipedia

 The exclusion of women on Wikipedia affects the way they are perceived in the public eye. The platform serves as a primary source of knowledge for millions of people worldwide, and the lack of representation of women on the site translates to a lack of recognition and appreciation for women’s contributions to society. The gender gap on Wikipedia has been shown to affect the visibility of women and their work, leading to a perpetuation of gender stereotypes and biases. This exclusion of women from the site also affects their ability to participate in online discussions and contribute to the development of knowledge on the site. many initiatives have been launched to address the gender gap on Wikipedia. These efforts include the creation of edit-a-thons, events where volunteers gather to write and edit Wikipedia articles about women, and the establishment of WikiProjects, which are groups of volunteers who work to improve the representation of women on the site. These initiatives have been successful in improving the representation of women on the site, but there is still much work to be done. The gender gap on Wikipedia is a well-documented issue that has garnered attention from scholars, activists, and journalists alike. The problem lies in the fact that Wikipedia’s user base is predominantly male, resulting in a lack of representation and coverage of women on the site.
