Keep up to date with the work produced by the PicBod participants - featured responses to the weekly tasks, originally published on the community pages, will be showcased here.
This weeks 4th and final task was potentially the most challenging so far, to record a dialogue with a stranger. The students were able to interpret this by producing a lens-based piece and/or an audio piece that represented or responded to the dialogue. Negotiating the story with the stranger was key to the work and reflective of the ideas of ethics and representation discussed in the lecture.
The third task was to create a self portrait. Encouraging interpretation and experimentation, the students were asked to consider what point they would like to make and what role they would perform. Forced to look inward this task produced a wide range of responses:
The second task, a Familial Portrait, asked students to explore a relationship with someone close to them through a single portrait or series of images. There is some thought-provoking work here with many different perspectives on the concept of 'portrait'.
The first task related to the first session, Nude and Naked. Keeping the themes and ideas discussed in the lecture and seminar in mind, this task, 'A Revelatory Portrait', asked students to work in pairs and create an image that represented something about their partner. A selection of the responses are featured here, click on the image to link to the post for further details.
