#PICBOD 2012 1.3
The #PICBOD (Picturing the Body) App provides access and participation to a free and open photography class, pioneered by the photography team at Coventry University in the UK.
This App will allow you to interact and access the class as we explore these themes and consider them in relation to what we do as photographers.
It is based on a second year undergraduate class run by Jonathan Shaw, Jonathan Worth and Matt Johnston. The core tenet of the photography degree course is the development of a sustainable practice, key to which is the investigation of contemporary photographic practices and their implications for the medium as a whole.
This class sits midway through the second year of the course and in a practical sense it is the first time our students experience the broader photographic community being invited into their classroom.
The ten weeks are structured so as to address complex aesthetic, creative and technical issues along with the visual messages, associated with the photographic encounter with the body.
The class runs for 10 weeks of the year and seeks to enable us and you to collaborate with other practitioners and subjects, as well as forcing us to question our notions of ownership and authorship along the way. Outside of this block of time it acts as a resource for inspiration!
Requires iOS 5.0 or later.
