The Visual Journal as an Image Sphere: Interpreting Artworks with an Anamorphic Perspective
Sinner, Anita
Studies in Art Education: A Journal of Issues and Research in Art Education, v52 n3 p183-195 2011
During a 1-year study, the visual journal of a preservice teacher was explored as an image sphere, or "bildraum", in relation to teacher culture. Artworks created in the visual journal offered an anamorphic perspective on the materiality of teacher culture, tracing the lived experiences of a student of art in the process of becoming an art teacher during her university program and field experiences. Such visual expressions increase transparency of learning experiences and awareness of evolving teacher identities, communicating through art the social practices of teacher culture and how artworks are pedagogic encounters that inform teacher education in particular ways.
