So today we started another module called ‘Picturing The Body’ aka PicBod. And i have to say i am excited about it! The assignment looks really good and has given me a wide rang in which to work in so yeah it should be good and i already have so many ideas.
From the weekly sketchbook tasks, you should produce a single, lens based exhibition- ready ‘photographic piece’.
Themes contemplated within the lecture series should be addressed within your work, and the same rigour applied to the final products production. In this regard it should be a finely crafted exhibition submission, with great care being paid to its artisanal qualities.
A “piece” may be interpreted as a single frame, or in its broader sense a collection of images(still or moving) that form a coherent narrative. It should be a primarily lens based, though the student shouldn’t be fettered by traditional interpretations of a photographic practice and instead should look to challenge them.
The submission must exist both as a singularly unique and finely crafted physical object, as well as being infinitely replicable and readily communicable in a digital form. The student should explore and develop aspects of their final piece that exploit the full gamut of opportunities available in both the physical and virtual environments. In short, you are to submit to an exhibition “Picturing the Body”. This exhibition will be both physical and virtual- your work should inhabit and challenge the viewer’s experience in both environments.
