Year 1: (De)constructing the Apparatus of Looking (1/6)

Lecturers: Sjoerd van Oevelen & Elodie Hiryczuk
Course: Image Design
Date: Wed. 15.11 | Begin: 10.00 | End 17.00 hrs

Room: Moving Image

Photographer Bernard Sury focuses a camera on a cave painting at Lascaux, 1947

Questionning the idea of photography as a window to a reality beyond the camera is the underlying theme of this course. We are so used to understand the world through photographic images that we often forget the inherent ambiguities of the lens-based image. During the course we will explore the visual representation of space through different empirical and scientific methods as well as artistic and philosophical concepts. We will investigate the precise role of looking and discuss alternative ways of image-making that escape the fixed program of the photographic apparatus.

Each session will begin with a lecture centered on one topic followed by an experimental assignment to be conducted during class. Throughout the sessions we will give you feedback and monitor the making process. We will close each session with a short presentation and a discussion of eachother's experiments and analyse how images and theoretical concepts influence each other. The final session will include a small public exhibition of all your experiments in the academy building.

Assignment outline
The assignments will be based on the 'Theoria cum Praxis' principle of German philosopher Leibniz in which theory is always combined with practice and vice versa. Through this 'learning by doing' (or 'body learning') each assignment aims to be an empirical experiment or a test for a specific question about perception, representation, the experience of space, virtuality and physicality. For all these assignments you will need a (digital) photo camera. When needed a list of additional materials will be provided a week before each session.

Session 1/6 Wednesday 15.11
Lecture 1: Introduction on the fundamentals of looking in relation to representation
Experiment 1: Perspective Machine

A pencil, a ruler, a triangular ruler, a digital camera or smartphone 

Symposium and workshop on
Creations in bio-art & bio-science

22 November 2017
Venue: DesignLab, Pinetumweg, Enschede

With invited artists, scientists and philosophers we will encounter and discuss new creations of biotechnologies. With CRISPR-CAS gene editing, organs-on-chips, and the routine manipulation of stem cells, new acute questions arise: what is life and living bodies, where is the boundary between nature and culture, human and nonhuman? We will ask how can think and act when facing new organs of biotech. Science-Frictions is a joint production by AKI and DesignLab University of Twente.

Entrance is free but registration is required.

Second Year Project (3.2)

Today was the kick-of for the branded creative work.

To confirm what the next steps are, outside the contact hours:
Tim and Valerie will finish a draft, send it out for feedback from the rest and have a version on the table by the end of tomorrow that we can work with.

You will have to divide the roles for pre production, production and post based on personal preference for this project.  Work this out amongst your peers.Think about what you are good at and what you want to improve still. Please don't stick with what you know only. Make sure that you are doing equal parts or at least parts you can live with.

A finished list and planning of this needs to be ready before coming into class next Monday (13th 10:00) I understand that, because we didn't finish more of the narrative today, there might still be some lack of involvement. It is also your own responsibility to keep up with the progress of this project. So check in with each other and make sure you are clear on what to do.

Please include me in the email chain through gijs@gijsdierselhuis.com
Next contact day will be Monday 13th at 10:00, please be punctual.

David Cronenberg's eXistenZ is a creepily downbeat near-future techie thriller, starring Jennifer Jason Leigh as Allegra Geller, the super-cool games designer, who has just unveiled "eXistenZ", a game you plug directly into your neuro-system and play in the infinite cyberspace of your mind.


Please make notes, so that you can give not only a summary of the film's narration but discuss it in detail. Bring the notes with you to our session on Friday 10.11.
