Hello, Forward, Dinno, Cool & The Hunt, Poitee and Mindbenders Congratulations on your presentations in class last Friday. During the second session of our workshop, we had the chance to implement ideas and questions related with each one of your photoresearch projects. The five of you have provided five totally different ways to approach and to exploit the potential of photoresearch. To conclude our process, you have to work further on the outcomes of our workshop. For this, you are asked to publish in our blog the final presentation that will include the following elements: A description of your presentation in class and of the conclusions you reached after sharing and debating your contents with your colleagues. You can include visuals of the presentation, sharing with us your original boards of ideas. A description of your final and more specific conclusions: research conclusions, future employment of photoresearch; the way photoresearch potentiates your communication with your client and the rest of your shareholders. You have to implement these ideas with a graphic presentation of your new board, integrating new ideas and reflexions. Please, take into account that in terms of communication, this presentation would be addressed to your clients. In this sense, you board should not reflect your stream of thoughts but employ images+texts or any other element to encourage a "quick visual reading". Make it simple but also a useful tool for you in your process. You can integrate the board/final presentation the way you wish: in graphic form, as a video. Please, make use of your resources and infinite creativity! Presentations deadline: Monday February 8, 24:00 This final presentation will contribute the final evaluation of your work, alongside your project, your interaction in class and online, and your first group post. In case of any doubts, please do not hesitate to contact me. Good luck! Natasha Photoresearch Materials, here

Dear All, It was really great meeting you last Friday and sharing so many insights about what Photoresearch implies within your DesignThinking practices and projects! I would like to thank you for your enthusiastic participation and inspiring contributions! As promised, I include here a Wetransfer link with the visual resources.pdf + some extra goodies for you. https://wetransfer.com/downloads/f0aab01594c1404de9bc8b04b7aa1a4020201214121221/cb472d6781b0995ee81ad63a3efa17b520201214121221/72dd2b I also remind you that you have two TASKS / CHALLENGES for the upcoming weeks: 1 CHALLENGE (DEADLINE: JANUARY 10, the latest) Each group has to publish on the Blog a post with a compilation of their impressions/feedback of our first session. You should write in it: A summary of your first exercise contribution (What lens-based culture, understood as image-making and image sharing is all about today). How you have described and envision as a group the field of relations around the Camera (Based on the drawing we did on the blackboard) How you envision the role of photoresearch in your project: What expectations you have from it (Including some useful contributions you have received from your colleagues). This CHALLENGE POST is meant to help you map out your thoughts&expectations on photoresearch before embarking to their incorporation in your project. 2 TASK (To be presented in class during our second session-workshop on JANUARY 27) Work on the visual strategy of your project, gathering or creating images using the parameters we established and new ones. Present in class a selection of 50 images minimum on paper (separate image, not in the same folio). You can also bring along graphic boards, texts that will be used as captions, a graphic presentation of your argument and narrative. You are free to articulate your own groups, arguments and narrative, justifying how it grounds your communication strategy towards your client. You are also free to use your screens/ipads, but without abandoning completely the on print format. In the coming weeks, keep a diary of all the research process you will follow, commenting upon difficulties, new ideas and how you decodify your research material. We will discuss about it in class. I look forward to seeing the outcome of this process. And we will work it further during our workshop. Please, make sure to follow this forum thread. I will be posting some useful links related with Photoresearch. Also, let me know here or via message if there is any doubt or if you wish us to arrange any group mentoring session after Christmas. I look forward to your input. Hasta pronto, Natasha Paulien Oltheten. School Class and Bags. Nagasaki 2008. http://www.paulienoltheten.nl/work/124-schoolclass-and-bags#item-0

Dear All, This is Natasha Christia. I would like to share with you here what we are going to reflect and experiment upon during our first session in class tomorrow. Our first encounter will be a forum of creative ideas around images. We will try to map, in a creative, unconventional and personalised way, what lens-based culture, understood as image-making and image sharing is all about today. What does producing, looking at and communicating through images entail? What kind of criteria and resources can we use when doing photoresearch for our innovation projects? How do you expect photoresearch to be be relevant & useful in the conceptualization of your ongoing project and in their communication strategies? You will be asked to elaborate the replies to these questions in regards to your own group project and practice, but to also provide input to the other groups about their projects. Please, bring along your individual (non-transferable, due to Covid-19 regulations) marker pens, pencils (b&W, color) for the idea boards we are going to create. See you tomorrow December 11 at 16.00 in Elisava! Natasha Erik Kessels. 24hrs of Photos. We’re exposed to an overload of images nowadays. This glut is in large part of the result of image-sharing sites like Flickr, networking sites like Facebook and Instagram and picture-based search engines. Their contact mingles the public and private, with the very personal being openly displayed. By printing 350.000 images, uploaded in a twenty-four hours period, the feeling of drowning in representations of other peoples’ experiences is visualized.  https://www.erikkessels.com/24hrs-in-photos
