Blogging the Creation and Evolution of Urban Pilgrim Project.
With the launch of Urban Pilgrim Project, I wanted to take a look back at the evolution and creation of this interactive experience.

Recently because of Phantomythography: A Young Ghost Comes of Age, I’ve taken notice in glitch art. Glitch art is created using analog errors, corrupting the digital code, or by physically manipulating electronic devices. Naturally I decided to try this myself and above is the photo from my experiment.
This experiment gave me an idea for my MART 380 class. For my final project in there I will be creating a multimedia site called, The Urban Pilgrim, featuring original photography and videography. Combing glitch art with gif’s, I plan to feature several of these on the multimedia site in order for videos to navigate to other pages on the platform.

Last week I blogged about the idea I had for my newest multimedia endeavor, The Urban Pilgrim. Now the initial reasoning for creating this site was to fulfill a requirement for my MART 380 class; however, this project has definitely taken a life of its own.
Over the last week I’ve been pulling both original photography and videography from past Columbia explorations and have been building the site.
Besides featuring original photography and videography I wanted to create GIFs for the featured image / navigation purposes. These GIFs would be created using video footage through Photoshop. After a few tutorials I accomplished this and the above GIF is now currently featured on the site.
Thursday, April 23rd was the launch of Urban Pilgrim Project, which features several locations around Columbia, SC. Since the launch we’ve received warm reception and within hours had reached 300+ subscribers and as of Monday, April 27 we have reached 846 subscribers. With the growing number of our subscribers, I can safely say that Urban Pilgrim Project will return over the next year periodically. Something that I will continue to look forward to.
