The heart of an image
David Jiménez — Workshop
schedule: — H
Inscription: 200 EURO
This is a workshop that aims in exploring the fine line between reality and our fluctuating perception of it. During these four days David Jimenez will try to deconstruct pre-existing ways of understanding, and help participants in finding their own voice. His theoretical strategy will include discussing different concepts related to the way we see reality and the nature of images, the multiple ways we can use the variables of the medium to express our ideas, as well as studying a wide spectrum of artists, to demonstrate the variety of ways poetic concepts translate into an expressive personal style. After that the participants will be going out into nature in the unique surroundings of Galani and experience the creative process through an experimental approach. If you already have a work in progress you are encouraged to bring it along and David will help you to develop it further. The aim is finding the elusive heart of the image, as it were, or at least getting closer to our own understanding of it.
