Lecture: Every Image tells a story
14:00 - 16:30
Friday May 13
Follow this interesting talk by Irene Mavrommati about semantics. I
Semantic interpretation of images will be outlined. Examples from photography, art, advertising, social media and photographic reportage shall be a prompt for discussion. The Group will practice in identifying the visual elements that act as visual signs, then inferring their interpretation (what they signify) will be attempted, and subsequently we will be taking into consideration the context, the individual interpretations, cultural understanding, collective or contextual understanding, and importance of text in the interpretation of an image.
A better understanding on deriving meaning and semantic language, is achieved by group brainstorming on photographic examples and follow up discussion.
