Selfies: Exploring the Self & Body Through Photography & Writing with educator, activist, and performance artist Angie River.
Four weeks: April 6 – April 27, 2015
In this age of social media people often have their phones out snapping photos of themselves and documenting their daily lives through pictures. How often, though, do we stop to really look at these digital narratives and explore what they mean to us? This course uses a series of paired photography “selfie” and writing prompts to explore our identities and bodies. We will investigate the ways we view ourselves, and how we present ourselves to others. There will be ‘homework’ of selfies and writing for participants to complete during weeks one, two and three. Participants will have the opportunity to share this work with other participants if they so choose!
