The Self in Relation to the Other: A Print Exchange between Istanbul and Rochester
This print portfolio is the result of an exchange between the College of Imaging Arts and Sciences, Rochester Institute of Technology (USA) and Koc University, College of Social Sciences and Humanities, Media and Visual Arts Department in Turkey during the fall semester of 2013. While students enrolled in the “Art of the Book” course at Koç University utilized more traditional techniques such as intaglio, RIT students worked with photographic process in the course “Contemporary Issues: Photo Print Processes: graphic possibilities on paper and glass.” The objectives of the project included participation in an international dialogue, and articulating innovative ways to builda narrative through interactive learning. By engaging in practice-based research students also participated in academic and experiential learning. A total of 16 undergraduate and graduate students took part in the project; each participant received an edition of prints in a portfolio folder.
