Course Catalog Description:
The making and sharing of still and moving images has fundamentally changed since the advent of the smartphone. And these images help change the world. The 10-minute video of the murder of George Floyd by Minneapolis police on May 24, 2020 was shot by a high school student, who said "The world needed to see what I was seeing." Social distancing in response to the COVID-19 pandemic also highlights the impact of this technology. While our physical mobility may be limited, our mobile devices not only augment our experience of the world, in many ways they replace it. This is a hybrid art class involving both making and sharing of photographs, as well as readings, presentations and discussions. We will explore how mobile imaging technology and connectivity have transformed photography, as well as every other aspect of our lives- emotional, social, political, economic, and health. We will learn about the history, technology and infrastructure of mobile devices and the internet. This is a rapidly changing topic, and our exploration format will be one of co-teaching and co-learning for instructor and students alike. This is not your grandparents' photo class (although it is open to all generations.)
