Reading Response 5

In Anne Friedberg’s Journal of Visual Culture, she talks about how every piece of framed visuality is a part of component pieces of architecture, that they are visual windows into a vast viewing machine with endless opportunities in and out of the screen. But not only are looking at computer, phone, and movie screens, were also looking at the natural windows of the world like car windows and even gaps between trees and rocks and how the borders play such a vital role in how the “window” appears and is interpreted. Throughout history the window has changed with new upcoming technology, starting with the simple 30 inch television to modern day VR that gives us no borders. I think this is a great because you can change the feeling of whatever media you’re presenting just by changing the border around it. And by being able to change the border you can change the feeling of the story and make it even more complex and interesting for your audience to see. I also agree with that each step of the process of making media, it’s like the building components to make the structure and each individual piece is needed to make a final beautiful project.
