Visual media program
We invite all delegates to enjoy this year’s Visual Media Program. The program features a selection of diverse and powerful works, ranging from films, immersive and interactive sensory environments, photo essays, graphic art, stop-motion pictures, digital animation, and shadow puppetry techniques.
These experimental visual, sound and haptic media works make tangible the ongoing impacts of colonialism on embodied experience, the survivance of alternate ontologies in urban and beyond-urban spaces, displacement, ecological destruction, truth and deception (Canada and Australia). They capture small moments of the unexpected encountered during field research (Morocco), journey with the rhythm of farming work on Country (Australia’s Far North), and witness the cessation of community-making, seasonal building practices and bamboo foresting through ‘modernisation’ (Cambodia).
Evoking critical and emotional responses in the viewer in and of themselves, these creative collaborations are also directly or indirectly linked to sessions and can thus be engaged with further in conversation with their makers. Those keen to pursue anthropological relation-making through non-traditional media may wish to join the Curatorium Lab L02 “Epistemic attunements: curating anthropology's new forms”, Tuesday 30 November, 12:30-14:15.
