M W F 9:00am-12:00pm
In the span of less than 180 years photography has evolved from image novelty, to democratic art form, to total
command of our image landscape. With the technological marriage to cell phones and digital transmission,
photographs are no longer solely object-oriented and in this digital age instant imagery is globally accessible. This
project will investigate the opportunities and challenges posed by the phone camera both aesthetically and
culturally. Beginning with an interdisciplinary panel discussion of the implications regarding privacy, ethics, popular
media and art, students will progress through a series of written and visual assignments. Each visual assignment
will be posted to a page on the college website along with written critical evaluations. Grades will be based on the
strength of final portfolio, written evaluations, one 5-7 page research paper and class participation.
