The title of this class posits a shift in balance:  of the natural order, of the built environment, of the body politic, of perception. The result is a creeping entropy that can either be embraced or redirected. Taking a morphological approach to image making students can use any variety of tele-visual image capture technologies. From analog to digital, satellite imagery to scanner. Time arrested or accelerated.Night for day and weeds for gardens, the work produced should ask us to slow down and reassess the objectives of form, language and image, to create new prototypes for engagement and new modes of understanding our environment. Readings, screenings, discussions and critiques make up the curriculum along with studio time.  Each student is required to complete a visual essay using image capture technologies.
