What is the Point of College?, is comparing a Utopia University with a Utility University. In a Utopia University you are able to feel comfortable, free, and have the feeling that you won’t be judged. Utility University is the opposite; there is structure, and you will be judged in what you do. But, in the article it explains that it is a mixture of both Utopia and Utility on any campus. There of course there is one more dominant, usually utility.
For my Utopia environmental portrait, i will be focusing on someone smiling, feeling free in the environment they are in, maybe even thinking about what their next move might be. For my Utility environmental portrait, i will be focusing on someone working in their notebook, trying to meet their desires which is passing class. Or even sleepy or stressed out.
How did it work out? / Post results?
My partner and I focused more on taking photos of other people other than ourselves. For the Utopia images, my idea did work out. We captured people feeling happy, smiling, in a good mood, leaving school and even in the school setting. For the Utility U, we captured people that weren’t so happy, maybe even reading or feeling stressed out. Overall I feel like my ideas came through and worked out for my partner and I.
