What do you discover?
Transcript of What do you discover?
The general and familiar
Each frame reveals different aspects of discovery
What impedes (the discovery of) truth?
The turning point in the text
Consider the use of metaphor, symbolism or juxtaposition which can indicate a shift in focus. This shift can indicate a movement towards a revelation
Building complex meanings
Even everyday objects in this context can indicate metaphor or symbolism - an umbrella in this context is symbolic of building relationships/shared experience or extrapolating to a broader sense... building community
Reinforcing shared experience
Another example of revelation within the text is evident when the concealment of depression has been shared because of 'help and assurance' (both abstract nouns) provides the fundamental building blocks of community. The truth is revealed when secrecy is abandoned.
The text shifts from the focus on an individual to a shared discovery
Secrecy impedes discovery of an individual's experience and their subsequent identity, in this case, identifying with depression. When analysing texts consider both the visual and verbal language therein
Consider the use of pronouns to establish how a text builds its audience
The use of the second person 'you' and 'yourself' builds the sense of conversation - a language recognising that 'you' are part of a community (symbolic umbrella). The use of the abstract noun 'patience' which is repeated and therefore reinforces the message that your experience is significant i.e. ...most important...
Uncovering representations of discovery
How can different kinds of deception confound discovery?
AREA OF STUDY
HOW DO WE DISCOVERY SOMETHING UNSEEN AND 'QUIET'?
IF SOMETHING IS UBIQUITOUS IS DISCOVERY STILL RELEVANT? IF SO WHY & HOW?
Texts can represent psychological and social aspects of discovery which inform our understanding of experience, identity and community.
View the YouTube clip and chose six frames, two of each that represent discovery of identity, community and experience. Analyse the frames to show your understanding of different ways discovery is represented therein and then discuss them with your classmates. i.e. is the discovery deliberate/accidental, positive/negative, beneficial/benign?
'Don't be ashamed' is an imperative
