The 17th Study of Design Fundamentals Seminar: "Radical Reversibility: the Gaze Multiple"

Thursday, January 14th, 2021

Kyushu University Faculty of Design explores the fundamental methodology of design for integrating a wide range of designs. We are pleased to invite Elodie Hiryczuk, visual artist, to share with us her ideas and experiences about “Radical Reversibility: the Gaze Multiple”. This online seminar is open to anyone. We are looking forward to your participation.

[Topic]

Departing from the assumption that looking is a multi-directional process, the univocal concept of the gaze, as created by a dominant western worldview, needs to be challenged. For this purpose ‘research through images’ can be employed as a method to investigate different cultures of the gaze, from intercultural, transhistorical and non-anthropocentric perspectives. With the aim of conceiving the act of looking as transformative and messy we will further introduce the sensitizing concept of the ‘gaze multiple’. We will consider how particular contemporary photographic art practices offer alternative and more complex approaches to what seeing can mean for our relationship with environments.
