After Monday's session, the proposal for the presentation at the Constructing the View conference is starting to take shape.
Essentially what we are trying to do is to present the photograph as construct - a negotiation between depth and flatness, surface and space, content and its meaning.
This week both groups will experiment with one aspect of our proposal and propose images for analysis in the presentation, ie both groups will have people working on technique, and people working on content.
We will test and discuss both the content and techniques next Monday.
In the meantime, all students are to post ideas to the blog.
Some of those discussed on Monday were:
The Fog of War by Errol Morris
Film by Tacita Dean
Documentaries such as 'All Watched Over by Machines of Loving Grace' by Adam Curtis
Also, the work of a previous colleague at UCD, Sarah Breen Lovett, will be of interest - expanded architecture, film as space etc
Good luck with your experimentation this week, looking forward to seeing how you get on!
