Noise Project – Week 10 – The End

Here is another sample image (not the full one) for my response to the Noise Project Week 10 – The End. For this image I wanted to create a doodle. I just put pen to paper and started to draw. Turns out I started to write and came up with a fairly interesting image. The brief for the response is below:

NOISE CHALLENGE #10: THE END

This is the end. Your very last noise challenge. If you’ve missed some challenges along the way, don’t worry. You still have one last chance to leave your auditory mark.
To ceremoniously close this 4-month long noise project, we’re challenging you to let go of your inhibitions and make some noise. Follow these instructions: Pick a public place, any place. When the time is right, take the opportunity to make some noise. You can scream at the top of your lungs; make a public installation; start an impromptu performance. You can do whatever you want to do, but do it with conviction. Make a lasting impression. Make it count. Make it worthwile. You have one week to make some NOISE of your own.

NOISE CHALLENGE #7: THE CUES

There are a myriad of noises in our everyday lives that trigger responses. Noise can be thought of as information. From alarm clocks to cross walks, these informational “cues” establish an auditory framework that dictate our patterns of everyday behaviour. This week pay close attention to the informational “cues” that make up your personal everyday experience. Choose one informational “cue” to hone in on. Use this “cue” as inspiration for your next post.
