Art that Iterates, a set on Flickr.
This is an exhibit that I curated at Teachers College recently. More pictures are being added!
Making pictures engages the world, generates conversation, sparks ideas. Thinking about pictures draws me to photography, education, and art.
A work of art no matter how old and classic is actually, not just potentially, a work of art only when it lives in some individualized experience.
--John Dewey, Art and Experience
We may have reached a moment in our history when teaching and learning, if they are to happen meaningfully, must happen on the verge. Confronting a void, confronting nothingness, we may be able to empower the young to create and re-create a common world—and, in cherishing it, in renewing, discover what it signifies to be free. (Dialectic of Freedom, p. 23)
Is there something this is for -- rather than what it simply is -- this relentless rush towards more and more, this accumulation, this surplus of achievement?
Everyday pictures mark our individual paths. The process reminds us that work comes from work, inspiration from doing, and reward from waking up and doing it again. Breathe in, breathe out.
My friend Tony is on a journey to mark the days, each day, with a new picture. Can you chart it?
