Lab 4

Looking forward I am particularly interested in biblical analysis, into my career and in this class. I am also interested in Christian history, especially in the south. It might be cool to take a look at records of when and where churches in Tuscaloosa were founded.

Early schema might include founding year, guiding bible verses, and congregation size.





Lab 2: DH Exploration

For the exploration of the digital humanities project I looked at the Baltimore Traces project, this project looks at neighborhood changes in different historic Baltimore neighborhoods, and the project looks at how people interact with these changes. One of the initial pieces of data I looked at was an interview with a juror in the trial of the Catonsville 9, this was not a case I was familiar with but with some research, one can find that it was a case regarding the trial of 9 catholic protestors burning draft information. There is a series of interviews and a blog about this event and how people interact with this piece of history.

Since the data is predominantly interview based, I understand that it might be a little more involved than just quantitative data about the movement of people (even if I would have found that very interesting).  There is a lot of data here but the map looks very sparse, however, the concession would be that I am not familiar with Baltimore. The real meat is found looking at the list of data that it presents in the project drop-down tab. Lots of interviews/blogs that are relevant to the various neighborhoods. If I was the director of this assignment then I would have a clear and concise mission statement on the about drop-down. Other than there is a wealth of interpersonal knowledge to be found here.

This exercise was by far my least favorite exercise I completed in the observe collect draw book. for the first couple of pallets, it was fine, but by the end of the exercise, it became a galactic pain in the butt. My hands were cramping up and trying to choose a new color without repeating the prior one was tedious.

I can see how this exercise will become important long term because you can see different colors next to one another. It served as a testing ground, however still tedious.

My favorite of the exercises was the variability exercise, It was fun trying to find ways to make the image increasingly complex, sequentially. As you see, when I was adding sides to the triangle I thought it would be interesting to add a thrid demension to the shape. Thus i added a square, then I went into 3D!

With the Star I was running out of ways to add points onto the star without it looking super tacky, so what if the star has to convey a point. thus he has been given a text bubble.

Taking what we see in the varriability excercise we can see how adding petals to flowers we can track the food stops from Prof. Weiringa’s roadtrip. When creating this I added a flower for each day on the trip, and a petal per stop for the day. Any stop at starbucks got marked in green. This was a fun way to see the effcts of color difrention.


Hey there friends! This is Carter Sheldon and I am a Junior at Alabama looking to grab a bachelors in religious studies and a bachelor in creative media. I think that DH is relevant to my career because it sits in the intersection of my two fields of study.

This is going to be me setting up my posts…
