Playing with Pictures
This workshop focuses on "playing with pictures” in imaginative, conceptual, exploratory and intelligent ways. Students engage through readings, journal writing, experimental making, film screenings, group discussions, critiques, field trips and other activities. The course investigates the collection, curation and juxtaposition of photographs from a range of sources including the work of contemporary photographers. Students think about photographic play in unexpected, inspirational and low-fi ways—experimenting with flaws and errors and reevaluating rejects. Finally, one considers how new meanings can emerge from different groupings of images.
