ACTLab Presentation: Honoria's Make Stuff Web Sites and Blogs

I built my first website in 1994.
The Electronic Museum of Mail Art (EMMA) at the ACTLab. http://actlab.us/emma/
EMMA was originally designed by mail artist CrackerJack Kid but it needed to be rescued when he moved away from his university server and Sandy offered to host it at the ACTLab.  I redesigned to the look it has now in Adobe's GoLive wysiwyg html editor.

Cyberopera 1995 - Present
My next website was my cyberopera project in 1995.
Here's the libretto written by 60 Internet avatars about their online lives. http://cyberopera.net/category/libretto/
Composer George Oldziey wrote and recorded the music to scene one.  http://cyberopera.net/files/2011/06/cometome.aiff
Scene one was the opening act of the 1999 SXSW Interactive with singers soprano Claire Vangelisti as honoria, tenor Bruce Cain as Bookish, mezzo soprano Melinda Brou as Sandy, tenor Oliver Worthington as .rez and bass Eric Peabody as the Oracle.
The cyberopera website was later redesigned by Knut Graf and recently converted to Wordpress by Marty Spellerberg.
If you want to produce and opera, produce this one. It's fun!

LiveJournal 2001-Present
I've been on livejournal since November 2001. Started as my dissertation diary, here is my first post showing my research questions. http://honoriartist.livejournal.com/489.html
In 2008 I built Confessions of a Watercolor Addict on Blogger then Wordpress.  My alternative blogging activities didn't last long because I decided to consolidate and use LiveJournal for everything. I use tags to organize links to sub-topics such as art, student work, family, teaching, life drawing.
http://honoriartist.livejournal.com/tag/art - look for work in all kinds of media
http://honoriartist.livejournal.com/tag/teaching - look for lesson plans and student work

I had Friendster, MySpace, Flickr, and Orkut pages.

It looks like I've been on facebook since 2007 ... honoria.starbuck
My first tweet was April 2007 @honoria

Slideshare 2009 - Present
I have 33 slide decks on Slideshare. Most of the slideshares hold slides of images for my in-class teaching, but others are public. My oldest slideshare deck is a set of watercolor sketches I did at the 2009 SXSW Interactive Conference. My friend Catherine named what I do "Live Art Blogging".  In the 2009 SXSW I also took haiku notes from the panels.  http://www.slideshare.net/honoria/live-art-blogging-at-interactive-austin-09 In the 2010 SXSWi I created an abstract comic.  I also keep my yearly illustrated Teaching Portfolios on Slideshare http://www.slideshare.net/honoria/starbuck-teaching-portfolio-2013.  Here is a "show" of my zen brush drawings from 2011.  http://www.slideshare.net/honoria/zen-brush-2011-collection

My own URL!  honoriastarbuck.com 2013
Marty Spellerberg built a Wordpress Artist Portfolio that he invited me to use.  You are welcome to visit.  I update it with new work often.

Tumblr 2013-Present
In 2011 I became addicted to Paper53 drawing app for the iPad.  Paper has a Tumblr theme that is optimized for presenting Paper drawings.  http://honoriastarbuck.tumblr.com/

I also use tumblr to make blogs for all my classes.  I can organized the topics for each week and link to videos and tutorials.  In my Design Fundamentals class I have all the students create a Tumblr or Pinterest and illustrate our design vocabulary terms from their industry.  I started a flipped classroom style teaching and made little videos for the various topics.  Here is the intro video to the elements of design.  I use a free screen capture recording tool called Jing to make the videos.  http://hstarbuck.tumblr.com/day/2013/10/02

Most recently, when my dear artist friend Kay Bridge died, I built a Tumblr for her paintings.  kaybridgeart.tumblr.com Kay's magnificent 5'x5' outsider art paintings are in the basement of her home in Portland.  She only had one big show when she was alive.  I  posted photos of her paintings along with quotes that I harvested from her emails to make a solid art site for Kay.  We hope to attract curators to find a museum home for this body of work.

Thank you.
