Image as Image
The seminar introduced image not as a mere visual presentation of things but as an entity that carries a set of qualities. Students were asked to describe an image by understanding its essence, meaning, behavior, history, content, Universal attributes, and representational qualities. The question was to explore the potential of using images to create an object carrying a familiarity with its origin. They created figures that are frontal and objective, provoking duality between flatness and depth. We do not know where the figures start and end—their boundary is defined by the limits of the image they are capturing in a still-life setting. Now, we have a new image started from an initial image which again carries a set of new qualities.
