Project description

In this project module the focus was, on developing one's own photographic conception in group discourse and additionally experimenting with new techniques. The course exercise consisted of putting the individual perspective into words and working it out visually. In particular, students with previous experience in photography should be given the opportunity to analyze their own view (also with regard to photographic models) and to work out a photographic conception. All conceivable photographic means - analog as well as digital - were allowed!

In small groups, we were also able to get to know the experiment of changing perspectives with the help of the drone and thus test a new technique in photographic use.
As beginners with the drone, the students first got involved in the experiment of looking at people, cityscapes and parks of Weimar from above and trying their first pictures. This resulted in surprising stagings on trees and roofs. A critical view of the drone was also captured photographically and the drone was identified as an "unidentified flying object," a foreign body and idiosyncratic intruder in the human environment.
