Introduction
Nowadays we are confronted with a multitude of images which present themselves to us through different screens. From the screen of our mobile phones to computer screens, ATM machines, tv screens, automobile dashboards, tablets, smartwatches, digital billboards, etc.

Naturally one would think that this ongoing visual evolution in our media and internet age has changed the nature of the screen. Nobody can deny the influence of social media, youtube, snapchat or instagram, but on a more structural, technological level not so much has changed. Media theorist Lev Maninov says: "Dynamic, real-time, interactive,... a screen is still a screen. Interactivity, simulation and telepresence: As was the case centuries ago, we are still looking at a flat rectangular surface, existing in the space of our body and acting as a window into another space. We still haven't left the era of the screen." (The Language of the New Media, 2001)

Following Maninov's observation of the screen, we could say that the classical 'viewing regime' – the relation between the image and the spectator – has not really evolved. The frontality, the rectangular surface, the singular image, the immobile viewing, the frame, the physical distance to the medium, all the fundamental characteristics of the screen are still at work.

During this practice-based course we will explore possibilities to create different 'viewing regimes' which move away from the fixed program of the singular screen. We will investigate possibilities for different narratives and meaning to emerge when using multiple screens, split screens and double images. We will look at the work of video artists and filmmakers. We will discuss alternative ways of image making within the Deleuzian concept of the Time-image. You will work with specific techniques and methods of filming, editing and post-production to try and establish new relations between the image and the viewer.

Project outline
During the course you will film several scenes compiling an archive of material to work with for the assignments. The course is linked to the software courses of Jan Guchelaar. You will learn several techniques which you can directly use for our assignments including editing double images, split-screen, multi-camera recording and multi-screen presentation. During the last day of the course, March 29th, you will install and present your work for the finals. Together we will review the progress and results. 

Year 2: project 4.1, Tuesday Feb 20, session 4/4

Tuesday February 20 we will have the presentation of the research project. As discussed you will present your findings with a slideshow presentation.

Content:
- Your topic + short explanation why you chose this topic?
- Your research question + your hypothesis
- What are your research results? And how does this compare to your hypothesis?
- Rudimentary concept from out of your research 
- Overview of sources > title, author/director, year, publicist, in case of quote/excerpt: page/time indication, in case of online source: link+date of check

Take care of your presentation. Remember: you are a visual designer!

Make sure there are no issues with your presentation and that you are all well prepared. We will start at 10:00.


Year1: Finishing the projects


Monday 12th Febr: finishing and viewing the projects:
- Take 10 Splitscreen
- Multilayering
- Me in a Landscape
And working on a new technique.

Year 2: project 4.1, Tuesday Feb 13, session 3/4

Don't forget to bring your individual assignments which we will discuss in the group.

Keep track of ALL your research: What have you researched? Which sources have you used? Why these sources? What is the information you gathered? And how does this information help you? This will be part of your deliverable for this course.

And keep this in mind: "Art without research is lacking an essential foundation. As cultural developments, both live on the balance between tradition and innovation. Tradition without research would be blind takeover [context of your work], and innovation without research would be pure intuition [objective of your work]." - Julian Klein, "What is artistic research?", 2010

Tuesday Feb 13 we will meet again. As always we will start at 10:00.

Out of office

Thursday 8th februar I'll be at location ArtEZ -Arnhem. You can reach me by mail or plan an appointment in the electronic agenda.

Still live assignment photography ACD + MI 1

Image or Print?


This assignment is to make you think and become aware of the value of a good photographic print.
You need to make 1 (one) beautiful photographic print (silver-gelatin) of a still live you put together yourself using a 4x5" camera and black&white film and paper.
The final print should be a beautiful silver-gelatin print; either an enlargement or a contact print. Enlargement not bigger than 8x10".
The final print needs to be so beautiful that you want to frame it and put it on your wall.
The essence of this assignment is not only to make you acquainted with analog large format camera and film but also to make you aware of the slow process where the time in between the making of the image and seeing the result has significant meaning.
The only other extra tool you can use is a separate light meter.
Light can come from the outside or from artificial tungsten lights.
Final print can also be fabricated in Cyanotype on any surface you can think of (ask Aalt, Lex or anybody else around the dark room or studio).
Aalt (or Marcel, or Ferdinand) will teach you how to properly use the camera, light meter, film and dark room.
Email me with any questions if nobody else is available or if you absolutely need to talk to me for whatever reason. I'll be at the AKI every Monday and Tuesday.
Happy experimenting and lots of fun trying!!!

ps
Pam has a file with the example-photographs by Josef Sudek and will send it to you all.
