IIT Architecture Lecture
"Films that Work Like Drawings"
March 4, 2011
Martin Hogue's lecture will center on a screening of scenes taken from historically significant landscape films. The presentation is organized thematically to highlight specific cinematographic techniques and shots (framing, scrolling, tracking, cutting, etc.) whose use in these films both approximates and enriches the performance of conventional landscape drawings.
Among the films to be screened and discussed:
James Benning, 13 Lakes (2004)
Peter Greenaway, The Draughtsman’s Contract (1982)
Chris Welsby, 7 Days (1974)
Michael Snow, Région Centrale (1971)
Chris Marker, La Jetée (1962)
Martin Hogue is the William Munsey Kennedy Jr. Fellow in the Department of Landscape Architecture in the College of Environmental Forestry at the State University of New York, Syracuse. He holds masters degrees in architecture and landscape architecture.
All lectures are free and open to the public. Call 312.567.3312 for information.
