Ways of Seeing

The translation of books into television/film is nothing new. The reverse, however, a filmic text becoming a book is pretty unusual. We will view Ways of Seeing in video form before reading the book. This will establish a theoretical grounding for the course, as well as giving us a concrete example of the ways in which text and image (still and moving) translate across different media.

  1. In today's era, are there any images that exist in a fixed place of meaning and do not travel beyond this point? Further, are all images destined for an eternal pilgrimage of variable meaning due to the flux of the reproduction?
