Studio Title – Passage: An immersive portrait of Marseille
This semester, I am concentrating on a video and photography project based on the research I’ve done into Marseille and its relation to certain historical narratives. My project is inspired by the surrounding landscape and draws on documentary, experimental, and narrative filmmaking to shed light on the socio-political issues at play in the city.
VC Project Title – Reflections on Marseille, Landscape, and Displacement
For my Visual Culture project, I am currently work on my process paper, Reflections on Marseille, Landscape, and Displacement, an essay that explores the meaning of the image through personal reflections and research on the urban landscape of Marseille.
Ed. note: Matthew has been living in Marseille, France during his last two semester’s of studying at VCFA.
