Back in 2004 I did presented at TCC on the idea of blogging and teaching around collections of photographs (http://mcli.cogdogblog.com/show/tcc04/photoblog/) then a thing called "photoblogging". How far have we come with these ideas in 15 years? The photos, the camera tools, the web sites we have are much improved. But what are we doing, can we do with maybe the most accessible technology tool, once most of us have in our pockets? How can images be used to communicate via metaphor? This session will explore the use of photographs in 2018 as a field observation tool, a creative/expressive outlet, forms of protest, and the ever spreading meme.
Participants will participate in the kinds of photo scavenger hunts and daily challenges I use in media classes, and will be able to contribute/share/discuss photos directly to a "SPLOT" site (e.g one using this available wordpress theme. https://github.com/cogdog/tru-collector)
