Due to low attendance and the fact that few people did the assigned reading for Tuesday's class, on Thursday 5/7, we will tackle pp. 183-203, "Visual Technologies, Image Reproduction and the Copy" (the first half of POL Chapter 5 in the course reader). Again, as you read, you should be summarizing the main points, noting unfamiliar concepts and vocab, noting what surprised or confused you, and formulating a question for class discussion. The last takes some thought but is worth the practice: figuring out how to ask good questions is a valuable art in itself.
The additional assignment for Thursday is to bring in images for the "Copy Cat" project: a well-known art work or cultural icon (pop or not) that you will copy and modify as a two-sided stenciled T-shirt.
