ASSIGNMENT 1: OBSERVATION ASSIGNMENT
1) Read Georg Perec’s An Attempt at Exhausting a Place in Paris posted on Blackboard. Then find a location and sit for at least 60 minutes observing the surroundings and making similar notes of your own. I advise you choose a place with some activity like a city park, etc. so there is some action surrounding you. I also ask that you do this assignment off campus and not within your own home.
Types of places to consider: A city park in the region // [Like Perec] a café in Tampa, St Pete or another city or town in the region // The lobby of a business building like the Bank of America tower in downtown Tampa. The place is ultimately up to you and you do not have to use the suggestions above. The assignment should yield approximately 2- 3 pages.
2) Return or stay at the location for an hour and shoot video that attempts to fully exhaust the experience of being in the place.
