JASON FULFORD: “OCEAN OF AMBIGUITY”
JASON FULFORD: OCEAN OF AMBIGUITY
JULY 18 – 22, 2022, BOWEN ISLAND, BC
Let’s start with the premise that every photograph is ambiguous—the image is fixed, but the meaning is not. ALSO: Things can be true, but only from a given perspective at a given time. AND: Chance favors the prepared mind. Now, our possibilities for storytelling open up. We can play with the photograph’s inherent open-endedness to either heighten the mystery or clarify a point of view.
In this five-day workshop of rigorous games and exercises, using your pictures, we will experiment with these topics. A few of our heroes will be Sarah Charlesworth, Rahsaan Roland Kirk, and Raymond Queneau. We will think in both abstract & literal ways; with emotion & logic; with poetry & judgment. And we will let chance be our guide.
You should come with an open mind, a sense of humor and a strong work ethic. The desired outcome is a way of thinking and living that generates rich and layered meanings.
