Looking at ourselves looking through a screen. A case study of media education
WithAnna Caterina Dalmasso
Pages 20

The new scopic regime brought about by the diffusion of screens, and especially of mobile and augmented reality technologies, calls for a phenomenological investigation, to be developed both theoretically and practically. Andrea Caccia’s goal was to bring into focus the change that screens and digital technologies are about to cause to our contemporary scopic regime. Caccia’s method sets out a workflow, which allows students to put into practice a composition and screenwriting process in real time. Moreover, Caccia’s project interrupts the transparency and automatism of the familiar and basically unconscious act of producing pictures. In Vedozero, a project that was deeply engaged with the proliferation of the cinematic dispositive, teenagers came to progressively master the filmic construction of a virtual space by means of a multiplication of perspectives and points of view. Vedozero, however, brings along the emergence of a post-cinematic dispositive.
