Final Projects & Curate @ ICE 11:30 Thursday 15 June

“We can express our feelings regarding the world around us either by poetic or by descriptive means. I prefer to express myself metaphorically. Let me stress: metaphorically, not symbolically. A symbol contains within itself a definite meaning, certain intellectual formula, while metaphor is an image. An image possessing the same distinguishing features as the world it represents. An image — as opposed to a symbol — is indefinite in meaning. One cannot speak of the infinite world by applying tools that are definite and finite. We can analyse the formula that constitutes a symbol, while metaphor is a being-within-itself, it’s a monomial. It falls apart at any attempt of touching it.”  Andrei Tarkovski

Last week quite a number of you presented the development of your Final project ideas. There was a good range of films and interesting approaches from experimental to observational through to sensory immersive. If you did not present last week then you mast present at this session. Here are a few clips worth considering in terms of approaches:

Immersive – The Iron Ministry

Observational – Grey Gardens

Surrealist – Un Chien Andalou

Animation – The Street of Crocodiles

Essayistic – News from Home

Expository – Taxi To The Dark Side

We will also continue with the Curate Project looking at it in more depth and making sure everybody is represented.
