LCC Photography Research Show

20140321-194926.jpg

This research hub based at London College of Communication (LCC) brings together practitioners and theorists to explore and promote photography as a mode of imaginary thought and its relation to a collective imaginary.

Specifically, we are interested in the increasingly complex research methodologies that underpin fine art photography as a form of knowledge with its own epistemology. Particular emphasis will be given to photographic works that explicitly engage with contemporary thought; theories that engage with contemporary photography; as well as photographic images and philosophies of the image that contribute to how the imaginary is invested in photographic production and the ‘as if’ condition of the photographic image.

The Photography and the Contemporary Imaginary Research Hub builds on LCC’s international reputation for conceptual photography and is organized by Dr Wiebke Leister and Paul Tebbs.

GAMSWEN After Easter TimeTable PDF

“Headliners”

Rachel Armstrong  “The lecture as a whole was very inspiring even more so because she’s doing exactly what I want to do as a career. Exploring new areas and ideas in design.” Jumana  more =>

Simon Herron – On Drawing…. “During this lecture we got an insight into design when there was not machines and computers to make the work easier and I found it very fascinating to learn the different techniques which where applied to create such amazing designs.” Mario     more =>

Neil Spiller – Surrealist Lecture “Inspiration for the project was taken from Zodiac Mindwarp, Salvador Dali, Marcel Duchamp and Gian Lorenzo Bernini. After a quick passive insult to architects the world of “Communicating Vessels” was unleashed. Neil Spiller has created an island world full or bazar artefacts that serve stranger purposes. This island is not physically real, but exists inside Neil’s head.” Dan  more =>

Stacey Pitsillides – Digital Death “I felt a real bond towards this subject, because it is something that a lot of people do not realise, and every single person has got at least one source of information about themselves online. The idea of digital death and what happens to all of your data once you have died, and who has access to it and where it gets taken from there is an extremely important thing to think about and plan before you die.” Neriman  more =>

Apocalypse Now – Introduction

Lyrics to The End by the Doors (1967)

This is the end
Beautiful friend
This is the end
My only friend, the end

Of our elaborate plans, the end
Of everything that stands, the end
No safety or surprise, the end
I’ll never look into your eyes…again

Can you picture what will be
So limitless and free
Desperately in need…of some…stranger’s hand
In a…desperate land

Lost in a Roman…wilderness of pain
And all the children are insane
All the children are insane
Waiting for the summer rain, yeah

Writing an Introduction and Conclusion

The introduction and the conclusion will give the reader a point of entry to and a point of exit from your writing.

Conclusion: The conclusion brings closure to the reader, summing up your points or providing a final perspective on your topic(s). All the conclusion needs are some strong paragraphs, which do not need to follow any set formula. Simply review the main points (being careful not to restate them exactly) or briefly describe your feelings about the topic. Even an anecdote can end your article in a useful way.

|||

Introduction: The introduction should be designed to attract the reader’s attention and give them an idea of the article’s focus.

Begin with an attention grabber – The attention grabber you use is up to you, but here are some ideas: Startling information – This information must be true and verifiable, and it doesn’t need to be totally new to your readers. It could simply be a pertinent fact that explicitly illustrates the point you wish to make.  If you use a piece of startling information, follow it with a sentence or two of elaboration.

 Anecdote – An anecdote is a story that illustrates a point. Be sure your anecdote is short, to the point, and relevant to your topic. This can be a very effective opener for your article, but use it carefully. Dialogue – An appropriate dialogue does not have to identify the speakers, but the reader must understand the point you are trying to convey. Use only two or three exchanges between speakers to make your point. Follow dialogue with a sentence or two of elaboration.

Summary Information – A few sentences explaining your topic in general terms can lead the reader gently to your articles. Each sentence should become gradually more specific. If the attention grabber was only a sentence or two, add one or two more sentences that will lead the reader from your opening to your thesis statement.
