Ways of seeing (a day in the life) 2015

 

Shot on iPhone through the POV standpoint “Ways of seeing (a day in the life)” is a humorous look at a graduate artist in full time employment and their application of art theory to their surrounding environment.

The audio of the film is taken from a 1970s BBC essay film titled “Ways of Seeing” by John Berger. The text from this film has been used in majority art school across Britain for the last thirty years and explores the essay of Walter Benjamin “art in the age of mechanical reproduction” but Berger pushes Benjamin's theories to seeing art works on the screen, and the text also investigates mystification of art in art theory.
