The Perfect Image is a co-project between Theory and Crossmedia Publishing. The course explores the desire for perfection in images and what ideologies and concepts have informed the idea of a “perfect image”. Many examples were studied from film and video, photography, design and online media, from different historical periods, especially from the wider digital present. Students applied their insights to make their own works reflecting on the topic. The final student works include video essays, documentary, photography, design, web design, social media and interactive media. In response to the challenges of online learning, students prepared their own video lectures on topics to improve their learning experiences.
