seeing cities more clearly: March 16 urban video workshop: Everyday Extraordinary
Video and photography are widely used in the practice of environmental design, but often shooting video or photographs is a way to avoid being truly present in the moment as we rapidly store images in our phones/cameras for future perusal.
What if we used the act of shooting video to actually be more observant and more bodily aware?
Global Urban Humanities is sponsoring a very interesting hands-on video workshop with Neil Goldberg, an artist we are bringing in from New York. He works in photography and video and is great at helping people connect with the everyday in new ways. He's an empathetic artist and a teacher who got rave reviews from our sister program, the UCLA Urban Humanities Initiative, where he has run several workshops.
This is not about documentary-making but rather about walking and seeing the city more clearly, so should be of interest to anyone who wants to observe cities more acutely.
Please share with folks you think might be interested. Spots are limited so people should sign up as soon as possible on Eventbrite.
