HOMEWORK
Related to the final mini exercises we did - a drawing of a subject you find disturbing - (irritierend, störend, etc.) we would like to ask you to do in the next week a series of photographs of objects that are disturbing for you - now the stress is on the word DISTURBING - rather than 'disgusting' , that means - try not to refer to yourselves, to your own body (somehow a common association when we think about 'disturbing' - the 'mole' or 'hair under...' etc. you get the idea).
 
The drawings you did were often of symbols of disturbance - and interestingly some choices were 'non-visual' but rather of a smell
- 'ringing noise' 
- 'scratching nails'
-  'fart', 
or
 objects that can be linked to annoyance
- Computer with sound of and no image....(?) or 'system down' sign (x2)
- an organic leaf that has lice on it or some disease...
- signe announcing '4 Hours delay'
- la Cocarcha (Kakerlak)
 
They were many others I did not understand and perhaps misunderstood some of the ones listed above - would be interesting to talk about them in a way that is detached from the person who produced them. There is room for an extended talk of what consists of a disturbing image but let's leave it for the talk itself. The idea is to be not to personal and not to fall into the cliche of what we generally think of as disgusting  - think of it as the inverse side of photographing beautiful or impressive sites. 
 
SO WHAT WE ARE ASKING YOU TO DO IS  TAKE FIVE TO SEVEN PHOTOGRAPHS (DIGITAL OR ANALOGUE - BUT DIGITAL BETTER SINCE IT IS EASIER TO PROJECT)
PLEASE DO ONE IMAGE PER  DAY -( SPEND LITTLE TIME DOING & MORE OR MUCH TIME THINKING) - 
 
PLEASE BRING THE IMAGE  WITH YOU TO CLASS (ON MEMORY STICK OR HARD DRIVE) AND WE WILL PROJECT THEM FOR THE TALK AT THE END OF THE CLASS - WE WILL NOT LINK TO THEM TO YOU INDIVIDUALLY SO FEEL FREE
