The Phoenix Transect Project – Arizona State University

The Phoenix Transect is a research project undertaken by graduate students and faculty of the School of Art, in the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts at Arizona State University. The project is interdisciplinary and participants are visual artists who work alongside natural and social scientists. The group explores growth and changes to the larger Phoenix Metropolitan area, its urban and outlying spaces, its people, natural environments and resources. The project’s work is the product of a field class in photography. The goal is to explore the nature of photographic processes with the intent of probing the traditional boundaries of documentary and expressive practices, examine new media for visualization, and promote interdisciplinary collaborations..

Framework Project: Our Place, Our Priorities – 26th April, 2013 [Week 10]

These boots were made for “transecting”………….

04-IMGP0004

David explained to Maddie, Tracey and Vernon what he wanted to emerge from undertaking a “Transect” walk. There are different kinds of transects:

  1. Walking from A – B observing everything, being objective  and taking notes.
  2. Walking from A – B perhaps being more informal and observing say just flowers, trees natural life.
  3. David’s idea of a transect walk. Walking from A – B but observing things from a purely personal perspective. This would involve walking alone, deciding what has taken our attention, then taking a photograph of it. What takes the eye! It would be unnecessary to comment whilst on the walk. We are all capturing visual data on the same walk at the same time. Sounds could be important.
  4. At some stage we will show our photographs and explain why we chose that subject. The narrative is likely to be more complex than the taking of the photo.

We started at the Bailgate to the Jew’s house and from there to the Stonebow………It didn’t rain!!!!!!!!!!!

It’s going to be very interesting when we reveal our photographs in the following weeks and get a chance to talk about them…………….
