Metaphors of Vision in Antonioni’s Blow-Up
July 18 + 21, 6-8pm ET
This course is a study of how cinematic images replicate, echo, and morph. We will consider camera P.O.V., subjective encounters, and “nowhere” places in Antonioni's 1966 thriller film, Blow-Up. Ideas on the ontology and phenomenology of cinema will be introduced. Through the examination of Antonioni's "metaphoric" language, we will examine the set of clues that enable us to make sense of this film, even if meaning is left contemporaneously open-ended.
