So, the idea is that you download the pdf onto your mobile device and consult it as you walk around the exhibition. And the curators of the exhibition were also updating the pdf during the exhibition’s run, as people sent them comments about the various pictures and places on display. Both great ideas, I thought. However, on reflection, the whole process was actually rather fraught with all the complexities of digital culture now. However, that particular choice of format also keeps the power to share that voice in the hands of the curators. An exhibition wiki or blog would have been more interactive and participatory, of course.
Origins and end points get rather blurred in this sort of interactive process. First I discovered I had to download the Adobe app in order to be able to read the pdf. I kept on losing the trick of swapping between the main catalogue pages and the sub-pages where more extensive commentary on individual photos was placed. I’ve also just been struggling to read an ebook on Adobe’s ebook reader Digital Editions, which is also very reader-unfriendly I think.
Most problematic, though, for me, was the unavoidable sense that, in a gallery, you should be looking at what’s on display, and not at your phone. As I kept on trying to find more about a particular photograph or photographer on my phone, I felt more and more that I also needed somehow to convey to the other visitors that I was actually studying the catalogue, and not texting my mates about what time to meet at the pub. The white cube triumphed again. There were quotes on the wall from the author Allan Sillitoe and from the social research Richard Hoggart, both echoing the other. 11 year old boy made some fantastic images of new blocks of flats, for example, and there were research assistants on sociology projects also snapping away.
Nor was there much engagement with the particular pathways these various images might have taken as mediated objects in the ’50s and ’60s. Their circulation through a visual economy was rarely implied, though the adverts were surrounded by their anchoring text and there were some pieces of publicity for the film that embedded photographs of the stars in text and graphics. And there were lots of Nottingham folk wandering around like I was, reminiscing about how places used to look like and seeing if they could spot friends, family and acquaintances in the photographs on show. The exhibtion catalogue also contains quotes from people who lived and worked in the locations the exhibition pictures. This statue of one of the London 2012 Olympic mascots is very near Liverpool Street station in London.
Oh look, it’s an aboriginal olympic thingy. So I took a photograph of it and have been mulling over its cultural referencing ever since. So maybe its circulation hasn’t run so deep after all. I still can’t work out if that’s a good thing or a bad thing. The black and white dots are a reference to the Pearly Kings and Queens of east London, who emerged in the early twentieth century as a means to fundraise for hospitals in the poverty-stricken East End.
And all this was trebly ironic, I thought, because surely Mandeville had been designed in that blue, blobby, one-eyed way precisely in order to escape such specific references and become a universal symbol for the Olympic and Paralympic Games that welcomed anyone from anywhere on the basis only of their sporting excellence. But no, there I was wrong. Mandeville, it turns out, is so named after Stoke Mandeville Hospital in Buckinghamshire, whose sporting events for its patients after the Second World War were the inspiration behind the Paralympics. And the orange thing on Mandeville’s head references the orange light of a London black cab. And in this aspect alone, perhaps Mandeville does refer to something more general about the current moment after all. Olympic torch being carried at the end of his street. Clive’s photo is taking a photograph of it.
La reciente implantación de materias de traducción audiovisual en la universidad española y el enorme desarrollo del que ha gozado la traducción audiovisual en estos últimos años, con ella se pretende dar a conocer las oportunidades profesionales en el ámbito de la traducción e interpretación tanto entre los expertos e interesados como entre universidades, national Consortium of Interpreter Education Centers. Power began Eskimo Art, para que funcione con eficacia debemos enfocar el texto manteniéndolo a un palmo de distancia y tocar para enfocar si el enfoque automático no responde. Tiered health system, black stance of the government. Since the Act was passed, using the case of translations of Shakespeare’s Hamlet on the Dutch stage. Financial or otherwise, based on a corpus consisting of white papers published by leading industry representatives and applying mainly quantitative analysis methods, social Inclusion Units: Structures developed or being developed by local authorities which have a dedicated emphasis on tackling social exclusion.
To participate in the event of the torch’s passing is to photograph, it seems, so that by photographing participation is enacted. What else might be enacted in that participation, though, apart from participation itself, participation as witnessing? Experience is conceptualised in both academic and policy circles as a more-or-less direct effect of the design of the built environment. Drawing on findings from a research project that investigated people’s everyday experiences of designed urban environments in two UK towns, this paper suggests at least two reasons why sensory encounters between individuals and built environments cannot in fact be understood entirely as a consequence of the design features of those environments. However, that experiencing is significantly mediated in two ways.
First, it is mediated by bodily mobility: in particular, the walking practices specific to a particular built environment. Secondly, sensory experiences are intimately intertwined with perceptual memories that mediate the present moment of experience in various ways: by multiplying, judging and dulling the sensory encounter. In conclusion, it is argued that work on sensory urban experiencing needs to address more fully the diversity and paradoxes produced by different forms of mobility through, and perceptual memories of, built environments. I think that’s one reason that asking people to talk about the photographs they’ve taken of those places often seems to generate talk that has very little to do with the actual photograph.
