‘Workshop is a productive space in which people deal face-to-face
with issues of authority’ (Richard Sennett, The Crafstman, p.54). For
me now the main workshop is The New School itself. That is the place
where workshop ‘balances tacit and explicit knowledge’ (Richard
Sennett, The Crafstman, p.78). I am going to make use of classes,
libraries and other resources the school offers. For example, this
semester I’m taking a class Immediacy: Creating an On-line Journal
where each of the students actively participates in the creation of
Web-journal both in editing and design. So, I am coming closer to the
area of my interest (which is web-media).
The next step of the
workshop will be internship (which applying Sennett can be called
‘apprentice’s issue’). New York City offers plenty of opportunities in
But the most important resource is “who you know resource”, or applying Sennett “face-to-face
sharing the information”. The New School gives us vast opportunities –
professors who can advice what courses to take or direct in proper
direction with our projects, fellow students sharing similar interests,
professionals invited on conferences or other events etc.
the project I would like to develop through this class, I think that
would be some research on Web-radio and TV, their peculiarities and
main differences with regular radio and TV.
