Mission Log 2

The problem: The racial divide in Richmond brought upon by the economic and class divide established.

The Shareholders: 

  • Students who are given less materials than those of white ethnicity
  • Economy which is changed based off the amount of input and output being produced
  • Communities are taken care of more in richer communities leading to less involvement in a healthy living area

The Evidence: “In there goes the hood” by Scott Bass and Chris Davi they explain how the lines of divide between the races originated in the 1950’s to help with economic rise of the Caucasian population, to attempt to fix a way can be just fixing the entire system and fully integrating communities.

Lock & Key 8

Lock: With so much progress in 2017 why is there so much resistance  against taking the confederated flags and monuments down? Are those in support of the confederate flags and statues participating in an act of rebellion by honoring such a disappointing time and the traitors of America?


Key: Its interesting to see how majority of the people who claim that these signs of rebellion against the United States of America during this time are signs of heritage , tend to be the same individuals who are claim they are against anything un-american like when the confederacy went against the American Goverment at the time

Lock & Key 5

Lock:   In a world where money circulates the world as the common language amongst people, are we as people able to risk our our lives for fame, glory and ,money? Even in this case does the photographer do go out of way for pleasure or for praise?
Key: We as Americans are the leaders of advertising all things grotesque, gruesome, and disgusting but as soon as the outcome does not benefit us we are quick to disregard it. This picture was not shown to us because the Government is scared of the aftermath that would encounter if people are shown the truths of life.  

Modal Adventure

Throughout the modal adventure, It basically helped confirm my idea of my three modes of comm with more elaborate definitions and eye-opening thoughts. Ive considered my modes to be Linguistic, Aural, and Visual. With these three combined ideas I have initial plans to make some kind of movie.

Lock&Key 3

Lock: As time has progressed through the ages and stated by William Cronon the lines of nature and mythical expectation have become somewhat blurred into one another. Are we as individuals purposefully blurring these lines in retaliation of our guilt for disrupting the purines of what was already placed on this earth. Also as humans do we give higher praise to certain aspects of life to feel our selfish greeds of recovering our wrongs?


Key: As Cronon talks about in his article the exaggerations of humans on the naturalistic world, it baffles me to realize that we as humans stretch the truth for something so simple, especially when it is something that another can experience for themselves. We express our thoughts into things bigger than they are to evolve are already seemliness lives.

Lock&Key 2

Lock: The title of chapters 7 and 8 are named “Isolation” and “Exposure”. With this book having so much do with her work experience and love it is hard to detail which of the two topics is being discussed with the these titles. What draws these titles to be connected to her life?

Key: Marie’s love life is starting to vanish after Pierre’s death, and after a while of full investment into her work life its nice to see that after time she falls in love once again with another work collegue with the same traits as she found in Pierre with common interest in science and radiation.

Lock&Key 1

Lock: Being that Radioactive is based on the story of two Scientists and their scientific discoveries and love for one another, I question what is so significant about the artistic asthestics these book attempts to convey. Especially because when one thinks of STEM related careers they usually do not have strong connections to the arts.

Key: The beginning of the book being written and illustrated in black and white showing they blandness of their life without love is quite powerful  because it is not until they meet each other where the pages come alive with colors. This appearance of vivid colors not only expresses their love but as well as their connection to one that is most like them
