My Triptych starring me

Historical explanations

In this project we were trying to answer the driving question of how ideas from Europe and Asia changed the world. We learned all about being a historian, and how to extract historical information properly.

I think that ideas from Europe and Asia had such a big impact because in the times of the renaissance, regular people started wanting to broaden their horizons, and starting to get a new, and better education. With this came more inventions like the printing press, most lenses and clocks. Lots of these inventions came from the Middle East and Asia through at the earliest scripts and textbooks ransacked from the crusades, and more throughout trading in the renaissance era.

A little bit after the renaissance came the reformation. Before the reformation started in 1517, German priest Martin Luther wrote a thesis with 95 reasons against indulgences to the archbishop. After he was ignored, he was able to mass print it using the printing press`, an invention from the renaissance, and nailed them up on lots of churches in his area. This might have been one of the matches that lit the kindling that started the fire of the reformation . The reformation started later in 1517 and ended in 1648. During the reformation there was lots of fighting over the freedom of religion. After the reformation there were lots and lots of religions, mostly ones that split off of catholicism.

in this project we had to learn how to be a historical thinker. We learned how to analyze text and extract the information. I enjoyed making the actual triptych because it allowed me to use the skills that i have learned in SuperimposeX. I learned that i could easily take information from texts.

Avatar box and presentation

Pandora’s box

I had built my box to represent the mining companies coming to pandora, and then destroying the environment to get the unobtainium. The process of building my box was pretty easy. I measured, and cut my cardboard to the correct size, then in painted the entire box but left the outside unpainted on purpose to make it look like a shipping box. Once the box was done I started making the inside. I added some fake moss, dirt and tissue paper flames, but the real star of the show was the 3-d printed parts that I made. I made a tree and two mining drills. Then i finished my box off with two mini drones carrying the tree and then added some glass rocks for unobtainium. 

The presentation night

The presentation night was pretty easy and calm we had a few guests but at the group we were at was very relaxed. I personally had a very good experience
