Year 12 – Representation – Construction task

Posted on Updated on

Your task:

Taking the photo you have chosen, show how representation changes the viewers’ perception.  You will select, omit and construct from your photo to create the following versions:

  1. Select and omit a part of the photo which if seen on its own, would completely change the meaning of it.

  2. Add something to the photo to completely change it’s meaning.

  3. Put a filter across the photo to completely change the meaning.

  4. Add text to the photo to make it an advert.

  5. Add text to the photo to make it a film poster (meaning should be opposite of 4).

Your work will be displayed on an A3 piece of paper and you should be prepared to justify your choices to the rest of the class.

Year 13 – Key Concepts – Representation

Mulvey – Male Gaze

The Bechdel Test

The Female Gaze

Judith Butler – Queer Theory

Hebdidge and Subculture

Bell Hooks and the inconnectivity of race, class and gender

Task:

Create a ‘revision place mat’ to revise all aspects of representation theory.  It should be no bigger than an A4 sheet, so it can be stuck on a desk for later help.  It should have as much information as possible on it.  You can use colour, text boxes and images – it should be helpful to you, but able to be shared with others.

Here are some examples…
