LECTURE NOTES 12/04/2013

Class Presentation: Urban Landscape

Urban landscape:

  • Different generations of buildings
  • Urban photography gritty, not always pretty + quite abstract

Mark Bury
  • Buildings under construction

“Night Incursion” by Mugley
“Fruit Stand” by Vince Alongi
“Over the Footbridge” by Stephanie Krishon

Interesting patterns
Contrast, nature +manmade structure (compare, history, potential of one)

  • Fallen buildings = structure of rubble … looks like it’s been through a lot
  • Construction (contrast) …….how it’s going to look, structural

Class Presentation: Alex Prager

  • Series focusses on individual women
  • Selective lighting …. Choses what she shows ….portion of car “Cindy”

“Susie + Friends”
  • Movement, steam
  • Stills from ‘50’s, ‘60’s and ‘70’s

“Su Valley + Eye #3”
  • Before, during and after … what happens...
  • Control of water

CJ: culturally ambiguous, story is ambiguous; movement is between something, still the moment, to then ponder

Selective focus
