Soo Kim: 2009-10 Faculty Development Grant Report


Excerpt:

In Fall 2009, I received a Faculty Development Grant in support of an exhibition of photographic work and a video, made in collaboration with junior high and high school students from Marlborough School in Los Angeles.

The project starts with ideas of the "faraway" -- of landscapes remembered or imagined, of looking and seeing, fictional places, ideas of home, the panorama, remoteness and closeness -- as described in literature, film, visual art, music and other sources. Throughout the year, I've met with studens and worked with them to develop their writing and photographic work of their interpretation of the faraway.

I've worked with the students in generating photographs of landscapes that manifest their ideas of the faraway. We then cut into those photographs, a characteristic of my own work, to open up the narrative of the photographs to different possibilities and insert the extraordinary within the everyday. Lastly, I use the students' writing, their texts about the faraway, as the voiceover for a video that will accompany the exhibition.

The exhibition, scheduled for May-June 2010, will be msade up of landscape photographs made by the students, portraits of the students that I make, and a video piece.
