Reading response #5 People panos

In taking the people pano pictures this week I noticed that as I move off campus to take the photos, people respond differently to me taking photos than people on campus. Away from campus, people seem more suspicious of what I am taking pictures of and why. In past photo projects when I am shooting […]

I’m not going to lie, this week’s photo a day was completed in less than 48 hours. The whole “taking pictures on the go” theory was awesome at first but unless I reminded myself several times or wrote “take pictures” on my hand there was no way I would have remembered.

Hill, The Philosophy of Rhetorical Images, is a discussion of how images associated with content impact the thoughts and potentially even actions of the viewer. Hill is arguing in this article that images associated with content alter the meaning and effect of the content it is juxtaposed […]

Reading Response #5- Danielle Brown

This past week we read a piece from Caldwell. I’d like to start off this reading response by analyzing a quote from him: “the television and media industries are defined by a Darwinian imperative to survive by gaining advantage and market share over rivals and competitors in a given market sector” (167). Darwin discusses natural selection […]

This week I read Anne Friedberg’s article on the relationship between automobile’s and cinema. Friedberg explains the driving serves as a way to be a flâneur, with the windshield serving as “framing device”. They are both similar in that they serve as mobile spectatorship, both in reality and virtually. With movies, the theater served as […]

Reading Response #5 Sam Cast

Friedburg talks about urban modality and how it works in tandem with cinematic visuality. They talk about how while driving, the windshields acts as a kind of screen to the urban world. Places like LA had their urban environment and highway system designed with that in mind. Just like a windshield a screen has boundaries […]
