Digital Work, Rest and Play.

This module has two parts attached to it. The second is to create three sets of images relating to each of these titles. 

Digital Work. Digital Rest. Digital Play.

To start off, looking at these titles is pretty daunting. Digital photography is something I relate to digital manipulation of the image through Photoshop. Aside from this aspect I don’t have much understanding of the possible meanings. The surest way to begin a topic I am unsure of is to go back to basics and read the dictionary. 

 

dig·it·al/ˈdijitl/

 
Adjective:
  1. Relating to or using signals or information represented by discrete values (digits) of a physical quantity, such as voltage or magnetic…: “digital TV”
  2. Involving or relating to the use of computer technology: “the digital revolution”.

restplural of rest

  2. Remain or be left in a specified condition: “rest assured”.

  2. The remaining part of something.

Reviewing the basic terminology may seem unnecessary, but it is a starting point on the way to understand the three set series. Now when you attempt to define the topic as a whole, you are brought up short. I need to conduct much more research into these three titles before considering my personal approach.
