︎︎︎ Reflection on Part II: New ways of looking

Part II: New Ways of Looking focuses on the methods and medias of investigation themselves and the different ways of looking that these approaches can enable. The second practice-element uses photography as a visual media to reflect on the way that a series of photographs can transport specific themes and emotions. The investigation of media encompasses methods that I have used over the last 5 years to document and investigate our teaching practice and range from visual media like photography and film, to reflective formats of discussion and journaling, to the physical manifestations of practice such as artefacts or perfomance. In revisiting these media and assessing their strengths and weaknesses, Part II is not only a reflection on my practice at NBL but also an attempt to see some events or developments through different eyes and to capture new insights by, “thinking in the medium of expression with the specific challenges and insights this offers.” [1]
