Over the course of the Conceptual Unit at Freestyle, I have learned to think more abstractly, communicate ideas in new ways, and explore my artistic style. During the Conceptual Unit, I completed projects from Digital Media, Design, and English class which can be seen here on my Conceptual website. In English class I wrote several different kinds of poems, including a Photo Haiku. I also wrote an Expository Essay about one of my passions. In Digital Media, the primary focus of my work was completing this website by using Adobe Dreamweaver, but I also converted the poems and the essay that I wrote in English into digital formats by recording them and in the case of the poems, transforming them into a viewable, more dynamic form. I also produced an experimental piece of music in Digital Media with Pro Tools. In Design, I used the concept behind one of my poems to create a piece of art by doing a photoshoot and then editing the product of the shoot in Photoshop. My Conceptual Website brings all of these elements together in a cohesive and accessible way.
In English, I was tasked with writing an Expository essay about something that I’m passionate about. The purpose of an Expository Essay is to explore an idea that may be unfamiliar to the reader. I chose to write about Krav Maga (a form of self-defense) because I practice and enjoy it and because not many people know what Krav Maga is. To find out more, listen above.
