10.08.17 Workshop: Surveillance & Mobile PhotographyMichael Waite
This course runs at the same time each week over two weeks
Explore photography's relationship to surveillance, digital superabundance and digital culture in this new course designed to question our dependence on data and technology, and their role in monitoring and manipulating our behaviour.
Over two weeks experienced photographer and ACP tutor, Michael Waite will introduce participants to these ideas, along with photographers and artists working with the photographic medium to investigate data, tracking and online identity.
Participants will discover how our mobile devices monitor and record behaviours, whilst creating images exploring copyright, GPS and digital zoom and other themes that have emerged in recent years. In the first class students will be set an assignment related to these ideas, to be presented and discussed in the final class.
Bring ideas and your mobile phone to uncover 'who’s watching who' in this creative and informative course.
This workshop is inspired by our latest exhibition Synthetic on display in our Project Space Gallery from the 21 July to 26 August 2017.
