photo by Andreas Gursky. "Noticing change is the key" (Federman, 2004). It is sometimes unclear what the true content of a media is displaying. This photo is an example of scale, pattern and perspective. From my cultural background I may interpret the black lines as roads, however when you look deeper that interpretation cannot be true based on the direction and scale. It urges a deeper analysis of the image and the cultural contexts at play. Source: Pinterest
Bahrain pottery. Potteries are still made in villages, particularly A'ali village which utilizes the mud from the nearby flats in Riffa. The pottery is made using a mixture of mud and water placed on a revolving wheel operated by an artisan. After the needed shape is obtained, the pottery is left outside to dry and harden.
