Forkunnskapskrav

Admission to AHO and successful completion of three years bachelor level studies (180 ECTS). The course is for both master students in architecture and landscape architecture.

Om emnet

In the Japanese perspective, the in-between, or Ma, is the interval between two objects or spaces. For this course, this means there is an opening, a gap in all images (or series of images) to appropriate a new type of reading (spectrum). We will use this term and its understanding in order to discuss the dialogue that occurs between multiple objects (or images), and use this as a catalyst for a critical investigation of the complex relationships between space and its representations in photography and (of) models. 

To further elaborate this we would look at the japanese word Ku meaning the great void or the emptiness that can not be understood by the intellect, but rather has been triggered by the intuition or the subconscious. By using found images that do not initially belong together as a point of departure, the course follows the trajectory of André Breton who described Surrealism as “the chance meeting on a dissecting-table of a sewing-machine and an umbrella”.  

The typical causality between photography and architecture often starts with a three-dimensional space that is to be transformed into a two-dimensional image. But what if the tables are turned? In this course the students will construct and photograph models, based on found photographs.

Læringsutbytte

This course aims, to open up a dialog for the students in found images, to strengthen their critique and analyse of images as a whole. These readings, should be reinterpreted in the making of a object (model), that are photographed in the studio as part of the curriculum. Following learning outcomes could be expected;

  1. strengthen the students understanding and reading of photography.

  2. trigger a usage (and reading) of found images (a number of them) as reference for making a new intrepretation of its content

  3. photographing objects in a controlled studio environment

Praktisk organisering og arbeidsmåter

The course will consist of lectures, technical tutorials, readings and workshops in the photostudio. Students are expected to present and discuss their photographs among peers and to contribute to the course’s collective environment. Final submission will be a body of work consisting of found images and a number of images of objects (models).

Pensum

 

The students will get a reading list on the first day of the course.
