representing experiences

In preparing to talk about representations of reality, and thinking about the Dogma 95 movement in film, I came across this amazing flash animation of images and stories of life living in Jakarta, Kibera, Caracas, and Dharavi, called ‘The Places We Live.’ It’s unbelievably riveting, and I cannot wait to teach Urban again, although it’s going to be great for Media, Technology, and Sociology. (Also, check out this amazing stop-action film of a plane flying over glowing cities at night.)

    How beautiful! I’m sending that to my prof friend who teaches urban if you don’t mind. Great find.

    Oh goodness. I had no idea that that would turn into a smiley face. Yikes.
