Okay so in my computer class we had to do an animation based on a "weird brain thing".

i had no ideas, so i sat down to do my art history homework instead. i'm pretty sure you can guess what happened from there orz.

an explanation for the seizure inducing dot: i tried to recreate how hard it is to read when you are having an adhd moment. maybe you could keep your eyes on the text for a little bit, but can you remember much of what you read? i think i did good.

My mama is a psycologist who works with kids with ADHD and she loves it. :) Both she and I think it describes how it is to have ADHD. So I wanna ask if she could get permission to use it on her work with kids and young ones?

I got ADHD myself. :D

Holy crap, when I read something boring, I daze out while i'm reading... It's soooooooo annoying when you also have to read it for school.

Thats how it is with me. I will stare at it, read it repeatedly in my head, say it out loud a few times, and then say it word for word attempting to force myself to pay attention to what I am saying. It doesn't always work either...

no, it definitely doesn't. the best thing to do is just put it down, walk to the other end of the house, and come back.

Thats what I do sometimes. I have to go I don't know, play something on the piano, and hope I have renewed my attention span when I come back.

Oh man, that dot made me not realise I was reading the same sentence over and over again. However at one point, I thought I read something different even though it was the same. (Dyslexia is my problem when it comes to reading, especially dense art history books. Augh, I feel ya' on this one mate.)

Amazingly well done though. This is EXACTLY how it feels to have one of those moments. I'm suprised it could be turned into an animation. Awesome workk!

bawww thank you! i was actually pleased with it because it did give off the feeling. probably because it was planned during one. sorry about the dyslexia. thanks for the comment!

and don't art history books just seem to set it off even more? :fork:

Ah, the dyslexia ain't so bad. Just makes me read slower pffft. Thanks though!

Aannnddd why is it that art history books are 99.9% of the time completely the pits, while art history CLASS is like, the greatest and most interesting thing ever? I swear, I only read enough of mine to scrape by, nothing more. Nice pictures though :'|a

Holy friggiggin crap this is brilliant.

The seizure-inducing dot definitely effective. Not in causing a seizure, but in simulating the feeling of having no idea what you just read... and sometimes wondering if you even just read anything or where your brain was if it wasn't reading it. If you know what I mean. :P

I think I would have had a hard enough time reading it without the dot. Oh god. Our AH books were filled with an unnerving amount of naked lady statues. I don't think they really wanted us to learn anything. Just wait until you get into Dada and Bauhaus. All I got out of our books was, "We don't have a clue what it means, but it looks, uh, interesting."

Augh, your art is so cute. <3!

THAT DOT IS SO EFFECTIVE! That's really really clever.
I couldn't concentrate on the text at all!

Sadly, I felt the same way watching your animation as I felt when I started trying to do my writing homework 2 days ago.
I don't mean 2 hours ago.
I mean 2 days ago, I still haven't been able to focus on it!

This is so good, wow.

That's when you need Craig Farmer there to read the textbook to you at bed time, but translate it into cat-poop and fifty billion ex-girlfriends. :D

Oh, and also as a bonus, you get "S&M Lectures and Lessons by Craig Farmer" :la:
