This program explains how staged photography has been used to deconstruct the idea of literal photographic realism. Also explored are the ways in which this art form trounces the notion of a camera's objectivity, as in Cindy Sherman's parodies of B-movie portrayals of imperiled women, and Jeff Wall's elaborate reinterpreting of classic paintings to make statements about modern life. The video also covers Mac Adams, Duane Michals, Eugene Meatyard, Bernard Faucon, David Levinthal, Thomas Demand, and Hiroshi Sugimoto, and discusses "Chance Meeting," "Hiding Behind the Eyes," "Things are Queer," "Mystery Series," "The Destroyed Room," "The Vampires' Picnic," and "The Flying Child.9 & up.Mode of access: Internet.System requirements: FOD playback platform.Title from distributor's description.

Bricksy : Unauthorized Underground Brick Street Art. by Friesen, Jeff.(DLC)2086822;
Intro -- Title Page -- Copyright -- Dedication -- Table of Contents -- Introduction -- Photographs -- FAQ -- Legend -- Acknowledgments.From Jeff Friesen, award-winning photographer and author of United States of LEGO®, comes a hilarious new book of diorama photographs that uses LEGO bricks to spoof the famous work of the mysterious anonymous graffiti artist known as Banksy. Friesen gives new meaning to gritty street art using clean, modernist bricks. Bricksy goes beyond transforming the medium by expanding the scenes it plays on and adding a humorous twist to each one. Each of the eighty-four photographs is wittily captioned, delightful to look at, and appropriate for a wide range of ages. At the end of the book is a legend featuring thumbnail reproductions of each original Banksy so readers can test their knowledge of Banksy's catalogue with Friesen's LEGO spinoffs. While traditional street art is often rushed along by the threat of local law enforcement, Friesen has bountiful time to reimagine Banksy's work into glossy LEGO glory that comes off the walls and springs to life. Banksy's iconic characters gain intriguing new stories. Readers will discover where Banksy's monkeys are taking charge and who the bouquet thrower's star-crossed lover is. You've never seen Banksy like this before. You've never seen LEGO like this before. Bricksy is a must-have book for fans of Banksy, fans of LEGO, and anyone with a sense of humor.Description based on publisher supplied metadata and other sources.Electronic reproduction.

Looking at a variety of art forms, from photography and mural painting to performance art and poetry, the contributors explore how the process of creating together generates and disseminates collective knowledge. The artistic processes and works in an arts-based approach to scholarship make use of aesthetic, experiential, embodied, and emotional ways of knowing and creating knowledge in addition to traditional intellectual ways. The anthology also addresses the growing trend in arts-based research that takes a participatory, community-based, or collaborative focus, and encourages scholars to work together, with other professionals, and with community groups to explore questions, create knowledge, and express shared understandings. The collection highlights three forms of research: participatory arts-based research that engages participants in all stages of the inquiry and aims to produce practical knowing to benefit the community; community-based arts research that has community/public space at the heart of practice; and collaborative arts approaches involving multi-levelled, multi-layered, and interdisciplinary collaboration from diverse perspectives. To illustrate how such innovative work is being accomplished in Canada, the collection includes examples from British Columbia to Newfoundland and across disciplines, including the fine arts, education, the health sciences, and social work.Description based on publisher supplied metadata and other sources.Electronic reproduction.
