Time for another week in review…
Digital Imaging: This week’s class was a lab class. We spent the time practicing using all the tools so far: pen, quick masks, channel masks. We were also told our next assignment. We have to take a photograph shot in daylight and make it look like it was taken at night.
In History of the Book, we went to a screening of Soundtrack to War by George Gittoes. You can see it right here:
side note…History of the Book teacher David Ross was on The Colbert Report talking about Olympic Poster Art:
Wednesday morning in Visible, Invisible we talked about eyes.
“You never look at me from the place at which I see you” – Jacques Lacan.
For next week we have to watch Julian Schnabel’s “The Diving Bell and the Butterfly” – Buy it here.
On Thursday, Joel Sternfeld came by the department for a little show and tell of his work. It was great to hear him talk about American Prospects, Walking The High Line, Sweet Earth and Oxbow Archive, but I was particularly interested in his recent cell phone camera photos from Dubai.
