Course Description

ARTS 113
Photography: Pictures, Things + Meanings
Fall

What does it mean to make pictures of things? This course explores the relationship between objects and the images we make of them. An image may be a trace of something in the world; an object in itself (a print weathered by time, the trace of a chemical process, a sculpture, an installation); or a fabrication (a lie, parafiction, propaganda). Open to makers of things and images. Course content includes creative work, topical readings, class discussion, visits with contemporary artists and thinkers. Cameras, related equipment, access to Photoshop software, basic printing needs are provided.
