Explore the art of perception through somatic meditation and contemplative photography. Class time includes guided somatic meditations exploring internal and external perceptual process, ways of framing experience, considering creative perspectives on movement and the visual world. This leads into contemplative photography practice, with an assignment for the week to continue to explore embodied perception, attention, aesthetic framing and awareness. Includes a group workspace on Slack to share photos, discussion and resources.
Themes will include:
-synchronizing mind, physical presence, camera and environment
-framing textural fields
-form & emptiness in somatic and visual perception
-surfaces of reflection and connection
-contents, story & relationship
-vibration & liveliness in matter
