Check out my new page about Andrea Zittel. I have included a sketch-up drawing on that page.
Speaking of Sketch-up. I found this program easier to use than some of them we have used. My computer, on the other hand, has issues. How slow can a computer go? So slow I forgot what I was waiting for. Making minor adjustments in placement was impossible. At one point I gave up and started over.
On the bright side, I liked the layout of my scene a lot better than the first one. On the dark side, I lost the file. After exporting to the avi format I watched the animation. It cycled through the scenes too fast and the resolution was terrible. Perhaps that is why we were instructed to make sure it was an skp file. I went back to my file to try again. Well, I tried to go back to my file. It was gone, auto saves and all. I searched the ENTIRE computer for it. I was amazed at how many versions I had of my first ridiculous attempt. I deleted those so I wouldn’t have to keep finding them. Of course, at 2 a.m., trying to open my avi file in sketch up seemed like a good ideal. Sketch up didn’t think so. I eventually found a short cut that I am certain pointed to the correct file because it said that the file had been moved or changed and the short cut no longer worked. I didn’t have the courage to delete it. Fortunately we submitted walk-through photos so everyone can see that the images are really in focus.
So here is the story: My Turn. Nicholas saw his Oliver and Clare playing with an aircraft carrier and planes. They had a jet that he wanted so he tried to take it. Failing, he pouted before thinking of a new idea. He offered to swap a Lego plane for the jet. Oliver wouldn’t make the trade, but Clare seemed to like it. Next, Nicholas approached his older brother, Phillip, and offered to pay him to help get the jet. Phillip took the aircraft carrier and ran off with Oliver right behind him. Nicholas went over, picked up the jet, and celebrated his victory.
Check out the photos before viewing the animation so you will know what is going on.
Here is the animation. Don’t blink.
