Post- Perspective Keynote Lecture- 9/10/14

During Jon Clarkson’s lecture on post-perspective, he talked about different views, that you don’t necessarily think of, and he mentioned adopting a non-human view point. This I found particularly helpful at the time, doing my current brief on “Leaning from the Steep Slope” by Italo Calvino, where I was looking to make 3 final images that were all very individual and different, and so incorporating a ‘non-human view point’ really helped. For a non-human view point’ you have to consider the position of the viewer, and how they will feel while looking at the Illustrations, for example, high or low angles are disconcerting as they’re angles we rarely see from, and so make the views feel insecure, allowing the Illustrate to represent the feeling of the subject.
