The misuse of technology by disregarding the natural human capacity to move and perform simple tasks will be discussed in the movie. Therefore, although technology is discussed in a broad sense, the technology which is helpful for humans and is not directly causing issues when misused is not covered in the study. No specific country or nation will be covered to inspect the effects of
In response, James Elkin believed that nothing in a digital photograph threatened the punctum. In this essay, I will argue that digital photography does not impair the possibilit... ... middle of paper ... ... the part of the photographer and is characterized by the perception of the spectator. However, it is important not to neglect that the perception of the spectator is not independent of the spectrum (subject). It is not the photograph as a whole, which pierces a person, it is the certain “partial image”. Whether this partial image is created digitally or prepared via analog photography, the spectator’s mind does not make the distinction in respects to punctum.
Details are very important because it helps you further understand what you are studying. Also, even though I am a very observant person, I believe I should have participated more. Participating in discussion helps you understand what is being talked about because you are engaged. This may not be for everyone, but I believe it helps. With engagement, if you reciting wrong information, fellow peers can help in giving clarity on why that is the wrong information and give you the information you need to
Data collected at the beginning of the study that is used to create statistics originates from someone or something. One of the problems with the data is someone may not answer the question honestly; therefore you do not get a truly unbiased response. The other way built in bias is noted occurs when the sample picker does not truly randomly select the people, or subjects and this introduces bias in the sample as well. One must be aware of how subjects are chosen and randomized. On another topic of statistics, Huff writes about the well-chosen average.
Some people do question their backgrounds by removing the screen. They see the world for what it is both good and bad and not how they would like to see it. Meanwhile, others cringe at the thought of removing the screen. These people are so used to the screen they are afraid of what might lay on the other side. Some are so dependent on this screen they would even feel that Thoreau's statement is subversive.
Lastly, the individuals in the sample may not have an objectifiable understanding of what is occurring in their own lives. The second problem that I saw with this study was reliability and validity. The authors conducted an ethnography study using direct unstructured interviews and intense participatory observation. These methods allow researchers to attain in-depth information as oppose to using surveys or censuses. As a result, the authors were able to find unexpected information and insight.
Drew saw direct cinema as a 'theatre without actors' and so the group concentrated on subjects who were so absorbed ... ... middle of paper ... ... a human eye and it also had a better memory. This led to what he called 'cinema-sincerity' in that filmmakers were asking their audience to have faith in their work and the evidence being presented to them. '[You] say to the audience, this is what I saw. I didn't fake it, this is what happened. I didn't pay anyone to fight, I didn't change anyone's behaviour.
Asch and Chagnon were, vocally, very present in their film, while Connolly and Anderson were not; their purposes were different; and The Ax Fight does not contain an interview or any words directed to them filmmakers by a member of the village, while First Contact is basically all interview. However, despite their methodological differences, both films have shed light on the importance of studying perception of ethnographic scholarship. Filmmakers have responsibility of taking into consideration the competency of viewers and viewers have the responsibility to ignore ethnocentric ideals and learn to appreciate aspects of different cultures for their relative value. Although Western culture dictates that it is superior, we need to see past imperialistic views and opinions in order to truly understand and be able to accurately interpret visual ethnography.
If we make judgements we have no means of interaction. This is not a two - way process of confidential gossip, for none of the characters expect a reply. Bennett lets his characters reveal themselves openly and we are left to form our own opinions of them. He calls the style "austere" and so it is, for there is no authorial decoration of expression. What each character actually says is all we are given to work on and we must sift the inner meanings for ourselves.
