Part 1: Visual Map

The word I chose was “tweet”

I have 3 photos below, one is of the entire visual graph and the other two are close ups of each of the sides of the graph ( real time, and virtual time.)

Part 2: Performance Action

Social Media Verb: To Tweet

Action: To whistle

My word was Tweet. An action that went along with the word tweet that I thought would be appropriate to “perform” to others would be to whistle. I love whistling, my grandma taught me how to whistle when I was only two years old. I whistle when I am happy, and whistling usually makes other people happy as well so I thought my performance action would be to whistle a song to each of the ten characters assigned as a gesture to spread happiness! I think that spreading happiness is the most generous thing you could do. Everyone is searching for happiness and if you’ve got it, it’s up to you to spread it!  Below are videos and photos of my documentation of whistling to those people, spreading the happiness along.

  • A family member

  • An authority figure

My dad is my authority figure. We did so many takes of this video where we were laughing but when I laugh I can’t whistle lol so I asked dad to stop being so goofy so I could finish it  thus him looking rather un-enthused. But for the record he was super happy when I was whistling….success!

  • A team

I consider my hamsters a team. They pretty much have the same routines. I give them the same food and water and toys, and they work as a team to make me happy. So a team they are!
