Digital Artifact - Interactive Map Of Yasukuni

This blog post will help explain the process I went through to create a digital artefact for my DH2001 Concepts and Collaborations module. For one of our assignments we were tasked with creating a digital artefact, it could be anything we wanted as long as it was digitally created. We could work in groups or work by yourself, I chose the latter as I had a very specific idea of what I wanted to do and It was connected to my East Asian religions module which no one else in my class was taking.

How Shinto Has Crept Into Modern Culture

The questions of whether Shinto is a religion or not have been long debated and I will not get into the politics of Japanese religion systems. However Shinto is a big part of Japanese life and people practice Shinto rituals disregard of belief in religion. What I will talk about is the impact Shinto has on modern media and technology. You might not think it but Shinto and other "religions" still play a big part in modern culture. References to religion and religious narrative can be seen in a lot for todays Film, TV, Music and Books.

Update On Last Weeks Thoughts And Focus

Our last DH 2001 class was insightful and gave me things to think about, which is always a good way to leave a lecture. I have been trying to think of areas of interest and where to focus my studies. What angle do I want to approach a certain topic, what tools and methods do I want to use, what are my expectations from certain ideas and what will the outcome of my work be? Maybe I am thinking too much about it but I like to know what I am doing and how I am going to start something instead of just jumping in blindly.
