Artlink

The HMP Humber Art Department, known as GRAFT Studio, is collaborating with Artlink on an immersive and interactive exhibition, focused on the changing landscape and the aspirations of those currently working and living in the secure prison units.

GRAFT’s ethos is to use art as a vehicle to improve confidence, grow self-esteem, and to incrementally transform individuals by engaging them in a pro-active intervention program. Elements and working practices from the Studio will be recreated to allow visitors to observe and take part in the environment, projects, techniques, and journey of HMP Humber’s students.

INSTITUTE OF APPLIED ETHICS PRESENTS: ‘SNAP’ PERCEPTION

18 Apr 2018, 1pm (Free)
University of Hull

This seminar questions the extent to which taking photographs is an ethically neutral act.

In contemporary times, digital cameras within smartphones and other mobile devices makes it easy to continually ‘capture’ experiences indiscriminately. Furthermore, social media platforms such as Facebook and Instagram normalise photographing and sharing images of everything from the Grand Canyon and other natural wonders to the foods we eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

The decision to ‘take a photo’ is no longer a meditated event, but a habitual reflex.
