Digital Imaging Program in Italy
This summer, 10 students, led by Meredith College art faculty Shannon Johnstone and Dana Gay, will spend a month in Italy creating a body of photographic work and a visual journal using digital imaging techniques and practices. Their project themes will revolve around words, language, identity and cross-cultural connections.
Students will spend the majority of time in Sansepolcro, Italy, with several day excursion trips to surrounding Tuscan villages. During the last week of the program, students will spend three days in Florence and the last two days in Rome, where they will photographically explore and examine the contrast between old and new in this ancient artistic city and its layers of change.
The program runs from July 3 through July 29, 2010.
While they are abroad, students will be sending frequent reflections in a journal format. These entries will be posted on the web site regularly so that the Meredith community can track the travelers' progress. Be sure to check back often to see where they are and what they are doing.
