2010 Visual Studies Workshop Summer Institute
The Extended Image and Frame
July 12-July 16
Sometimes the single photograph does not aptly describe the idea; sometimes the idea is about the form of the presentation. Over the course of five days we will examine what extended picture making is, how to make use of the properties of the medium and create extended frames. Whether these are installations, books, topologies, or extended images, the investigation into the real or personal image will be about picture making. There will be critiques, lectures, field trips, and lots of photographing, journal writing, and idea generation. Photographers and image makers may work in B&W or color, digital or in film, the goal is to work, make pictures and dig deep.
