Why Phonar? Lecture 1

This first session is quite dense with a lot of stuff in there so if you didn’t follow along , don’t worry because neither did half the class (they only pretended to because they knew you were listening). We can make opportunities for group discussions in Google Hangout if you’d like – we’ll post times on twitter.

 

Here are some more resources and reading bits as well as links to projects referred to in the lecture:

  • By writing, speaking, making and sharing images, video, songs – it is explained that storytelling is the way these things become powerful and world changing.
    I photographer can be stealthy, innocuous or brash and threatening. This layer between our action and the result will be reflected in the story and how easily it communicates truth or a false reality.
    I feel that for myself, i want to be free of the limitations of Genre and of a central objective … this gives more chance of being myself and being free of the constraints that unduly influence what we communicate.
