Hit by a sudden torrent of rain, the second Lak Lak had to shift from its open air ampitheater location to the faculty’s gallery space. Nevertheless, a good crowd turned out to listen to an exciting line up of speakers made up of students and lecturers. Photo Credit: UTKU NAMLISES
Photography is a game, and cameras define the rules in which this game is played, but how to change those rules? Students of the Advanced Photography course (MMD303) were challenged to do things that the camera did not expect: smuggle unexpected things into its program, trick it, force it to do the improbable, or ignore it altogether; they were asked to “play against” the camera rather than “with it”. This exhibition presented the students’ responses to this challenge.
