|Things I already know:|
I know about semiotics and structuralism, I know about modernism and the how it does not fit its categorization, I know about the language of film, I know about different visual storytelling methods. I know about feminist cultural critique. I know 20th century art and design. I have a grasp of current politics. I have a grasp of old and redundant image making technology.
|What interests me about this topic:|
