wk B5 – Redux!

Welcome to Week B5

aka “Week 8” for the rest of the campus

This week

  1. SOA Artist conversation
  2. OC Artist Nadya Tolokonnikova
  3. Redo your photo project from Wk B3 (Landscapes with a Corpse or Environmental Portrait)

SOA Galleries

This week you only have to come to class one time, your choice of Mon or Wed. The other day you can use the time to work on your photography project. At the galleries, form a group of 4 classmates. Please do not pick peeps you already know! Meetup with classmates you haven’t had a chance to meet yet! Get to know a little bit about each other, and make a 4-panel ID card group that depicts what you think the College Experience in 2037 might be like.

When you’re ready, your group of 4 can find me in the SOA Gallery courtyard. Explain your 4-panel ID cards to me, and each of you should introduce another person in your group to me. Tell me a little about them.

Photography Projects

Two weeks ago you tried to express some ideas with a photograph. Last week you got some feedback from your classmates, and then you thought more about your own work and another classmate in your activity write-up. Now take all that and redo your photography project. Try to develop your ideas further and make your work more powerful.
