Listening to Images
In this workshop, which takes it title from the title of scholar Tina M. Campt’s insightful text on ways of listening closely to photography, we will attune ourselves to the “lower frequencies” of a photographic image so that we can register “‘felt sound[s]’—sound that, like a hum, resonates in and as vibration.”
In this four-week collaborative space (my model for the workshop is a space of generating work and sharing it in communal generosity), we explore the ways in which poets have recently engaged with personal, historical, and archival photographs: Ross Gay, Deborah Paredez and Anthony Cody, to name a few, while simultaneously embarking on our own listening and entrance into/with images.
No prior knowledge in working with text and image is required.
