Moving Pictures: Thinking Through Images
In contemporary culture, pictures move like never before. Beyond cinema and television, images now move through computers, phones, iPods, and anything else with a camera or a screen. This seminar is designed to help students better understand this rich ecology of images. The course will start with basic questions about photography, movement, and time, leading toward practical experiments concerning the images we encounter in everyday life. You will be asked to write commentaries as well as create your own images.
