Ever heard of chromokinesis? Think manipulation, embodiment and generation of color. Users of chromokinesis create visual sensations through controlling light wavelengths. Picture Lady Rainicorn and Abracadaniel (for all you Adventure Time super fans), both characters who possess photo-kinetic abilities.
My name is Ashley Edwards. I’m in my fourth year at Mary Washington, majoring in Communications and Digital Studies. I like to believe that chromokinesis is my modern-day super power. No, I can’t shoot rainbows out of my eyes or make the world void of color. My chromokinesis abilities are showcased through various aspects of the digital world, including my art, photography, videography and anything else I can get my hands.

To introduce myself this week I made the GIF above. I wanted to showcase my abilities in digital media, while incorporating the first thread of my colorful theme into my work for the semester. This GIF is made up of multiple pictures that I drew the word ‘HI’ on in various colors and spliced them together in photoshop. My goal in this course is to explore and experiment with color manipulation in all of my upcoming projects. I’ve had a lot of experience with digital art and media, but think this course will enhance my skill set and push me to reach way outside of the box. The relationship between superheroes with chromokinesis powers and my own personal abilities will hopefully be a much needed learning and growth opportunity. (Jury’s still out on my superhero name- currently taking suggestions).
