Pictures for Language Learning

Серия: "Cambridge Handbooks for Language Teachers"

Pictures for Language Learning is richly illustrated and provides a valuable guide to the role of pictures and other visual materials in language teaching. It brings together a wealth of ideas on how to use pictures in a wide range of language learning situations. The first section discusses the contribution visuals can make to all the classroom settings in providing real opportunities for students to communicate, whether they are working as a class, in groups or in pairs. Sections B and C contain over 200 practical suggestions for picture-generated language work. These make use of visual materials which are readily available to teachers anywhere or illustrations which have been kept simple so that they can be copied easily. The activities can be integrated into all stages of the language teaching process and advice is given on how to adapt the ideas to suit different teaching environments. The final section describes the process of setting up a picture library and offers guidance on where to begin looking for visuals, how to categorise pictures and different methods of storage.

= Life and Work =

Andrew Wright (born September 4, 1971) is a Canadian multimedia artist from Ottawa, Ontario. He is best known for his work with video and large-scale photography. He holds a specialist degree in Art and Art History from the University of Toronto (1994) and a Masters in Fine Arts at the University of Windsor (1997). Since then, he has lived and worked as a visual artist in Waterloo, Ontario and now Ottawa, ON

Wright's most well known work is Blind Man's Bluff, a video installation piece that has been exhibited in galleries across Canada. In this piece, the viewer watches and listens to the describer (played by actor Alan Sapp), a man who is watching and describing one of Boris Karloff's last films titled, "Blind Man's Bluff". The viewer does not see the film itself and must piece together the plot from the describer's summary along with the film's script, projected as sub-titles. In his catalogue essay, "The Artful Doubter", Robert Enright suggests that, "What is remarkable is how much wringing Wright is able to effect. He uses throughout his script a series of fictional devices that extend, amplify, and layer the filmic narrative. There are numerous occasions where he adds flourishes that force us to consider the characters in the film in radically different ways than how they first appear." Blind Man's Bluff has been shown in the Peak Gallery in Toronto (2003), Kitchener-Waterloo Art Gallery (2004), Art Gallery of Southwestern Manitoba (2004), Art Gallery of Calgary (2004), and most recently in the Robert McLaughlin Gallery in Oshawa, Ontario (2007).

Many of Wright's pieces have explored the nature of perception, photographic structures and technologies. His work, Home and Garden (Oakville Galleries, Oakville, Ontario 2002) presented the Gairloch Gardens in Oakville using three different photographic means: an antique camera lucida, a modern still camera and a video camera. The results, suggested by Elaine Hujer (Hamilton Spectator, 2003), are "so profoundly distinctive that viewers may be inspired to review, reinvestigate and reinterpret their own ideas about Oakville's stately lakeside manor."

Wright has also created several large-scale photographs by converting a large gallery space and his studio into a giant pin-hole camera. With reference to Wright's Skies piece, Kevin Temple (NOW, 2004) suggests that this work, "is a meditation on modern photographic technology that's able to remove all traces of the process from the picture. Now automated cameras can eliminate the photographer entirely. By controlling his own process – in effect, avoiding its mechanization – Wright draws attention to the act of mediated representation." These themes were also explored in In Camera: The View from Here (Gallery 101, Ottawa, 2000), View of 4th St. West, North Vancouver, using Presentation House Gallery as Camera Obscura (Presentation House Gallery, 2004) and London Camera Obscura (Museum London, 2007).

Wright has also taught extensively at numerous colleges and universities in south-western Ontario. Wright is the founding Artistic Director for Contemporary Art Forum Kitchener and Area (CAFKA).
