- What did you find most challenging about this project?
The most challenging part was definitely finding picture that I could use. Once I fully grasped the purpose of the benchmark it was easier to identify things, but it's still a hassle to travel around the city and find the things. I also had a problem with the camera aspect-- namely, I didn't have one. I was forced to use my old camera phone, from which I had to text the pictures to a friend in order to gain access to them on the computer. It was also sort of tough to embellish on the globalization for each topic.
- How did you go about collecting the images or selecting the images?
I used recommendations from peers, teachers, and my own ideas to assemble a group of appropriate topics as I understand the subject.
- Which image is your favorite? Why? Elaborate.
I like the picture of the Italian Market sign because I feel it is a perfect example of the topic and I have grown up in that area for my entire life, so it feels really special.
prevalent is the evidence of globalization in Philadelphia? Do you
think it is more or less so (evident) than in other large cities in the
US? Why Why not?
It is evident in many ways that we don't normally consider, definitely. Any time we use technology or eat food, we are touched by globalization in some way. This project has definitely gotten me thinking about the whole process of product from beginning to end.
