This week we were organised into groups and given our second assignment for Manipulating Media.
The Brief: Using PowerPoint or Keynote create a narrated presentation, lasting no more than five minutes, that answers one of the questions detailed below. Your presentation should consist of slides and a recorded narration created in PowerPoint, using the Record Narration feature; or in Keynote using Record Slideshow.
The role that I have been assigned for this particular project is: Presentation and Dissemination.
This will involve taking the script produced by the Content Creator, taking responsibility for the design and execution of the presentation. Producing the material in its final format, in this case, producing the presentation and recording, interpreting the content creatorʼs script and style and ensuring that it is ready/appropriate for its audience, this includes up-loading to Slide Share.
As a group we were given the choice between 4 questions which we must answer and base the presentation on;
- Explore the contention that the adoption of the aesthetics of porn in fashion photography contributes to the continuing objectification of women.
- “Christopher Bailey pledges Burberry allegiance to art over commerce” (The Guardian Online 08/01/14). Critically discuss the tensions between Art and business in the fashion industry.
When I am an old woman I shall wear purple
With a red hat which doesn’t go, and doesn’t suit me.
And I shall spend my pension on brandy and summer gloves
And satin sandals, and say we’ve no money for butter.
(Extract from ‘Warning’ by Jenny Joseph)
- What is the place of the older woman in fashion. Assess the contradictions inherent in the obsession with youth, and an increasingly large and affluent older generation
- What is the role of the media and film in influencing fashion?
