We are now at the second last class for the semester.
Some notes to help you prepare for next weeks class/presentation.
Bring a folder full of images to class on a USB drive or some other device. Copy these images to the desktop of the teaching computer and we will run a slide show of your work for all to see and enjoy.
If your idea or folio requires sequence as part of the idea behind it then, please rename your picures alpha-numerically; eg
Remember this class is about sharing your experiences for this semester. To help you share your ideas and experiences, ask yourself these three questions.
- What you set out to achieve with your pictures?
- How you attempted to achieve this?
- Why you set out to do this?
- I wanted to tell a story about my life using pictures
- I photographed every detail of my life I could when I had the chance
- I was inspired by artist’s who also documented their own lives; and shared the common beauty found by them all.
So folks, we are at the business end of the semester, I want to see a lot MORE research being done and presented back on your tumblrs, particularly in terms of visual research so far only a handful of you are posting regular updates to your tumblrs, please ramp this activity up.
Use these websites to cross check your source imagery and names for your week 8 research project, as there is a lot of incorrectly attributed work out there in cyber-sapce.

- The notion of place is one that can appear deceptively straightforward, as nothing more than a series of spatial and geographic contingencies defined by whatever happens to be there at a particular moment. This is often a considerably striking issue in photography, where the medium not only facilitates superficial readings, but actually affirms the immediacy of such an impression; everything is seemingly left to chance, with no deeper structure at work. The ease with which photography generates surface judgements also encourages the absence of ideological questions in considering the arrangement of our built environments. But the experience of place as such is fundamentally related to (and indeed, actively shaped by) forms of social organisation, both in terms of how its contours are drawn and how the very idea of place, of belonging, determines our identifications.
The University is celebrating Arts Week during the first week of September to promote local arts and crafts. We’d like to invite students and staff to participate in our Arts Market.
You can sell handmade arts and craft, up-cycled or recycled items, body products and more.
The Arts Market will be held at Footscray Park Campus.

We will provide a trestle table for you to sell or promote your arts and crafts products or services.
National Campus band competition has a heat in a couple of weeks. There is a $5000 prize for the national winner as well as the opportunity to play at Australian University Games in front of an audience of more than 1800 students.
