Design Activity 5 Blog

This past week in class we worked with the app “SpeakingInPhoto” which helped us to recreate the sensory postcards from Milena Droumeva that we examined in class last week.  This activity was helpful in allowing me to better understand the concept of sensory ethnography that we worked through in our readings and class discussions last week.  While the media that we used did not include moving visuals, a person looking at the photos are able to understand what is going on both visually and audibly in the photos.  I was previously unaware of the concept of a still photo that contained audio over the top of it, the exercise opened up a new way for me to immerse my viewers/readers into the worlds that the photos take place in.
