GoPro and Water Usage

By Elizabeth Held

I am a senior photojournalism student currently in my Capstone course. The current assignment of the class has been a team project focusing on water issues in the Southeast Ohio/Appalachia area. My teams focus has been industrial usage of water and the affects water transportation of minerals such as coal have on the Ohio river, and the connecting water sheds. With visuals in mind, we instantly wanted some way of getting under water. Since it is a piece about water, that perspective of being submerged feels critical to the story. This assignment was my first time using a GoPro is any situation let along underwater usage. The main scene of the story is following an OU biology class that does research by collecting fish in local water sheds around Athens. So my team and I followed the class out to Shade, Ohio, put the GoPro in its waterproof casing, stuck it on the end of a monopod, and went to town filming. We got great shots of particles in the water, the students netting catching fish, and close-ups of fish inside their collection buckets. Working with the GoPro was a fun experience and really added a unique eye to the overall story. Our project is a small piece of a whole puzzle that should be a part of next semesters Soul of Athens project that is produced by the School of Visual Communications every spring....

Anatomical Landscape

By Caitlin Feller

My interest in the biological sciences has fueled my passion to create design that expresses the beauty of the forms and colors that occur in our natural world. My aim is to cure the unimaginative illustrations that plague our visualization of biology. Anatomical Landscape presents a new way of looking into the human body, functioning as a map to convey information we cannot see. Rather than portraying each and every capillary or neuron in exact detail, an overview of each system is rendered to bring clarity, and to make this complicated content understandable. This interactive piece encourages viewers to develop an understanding of their bodies by adding and subtracting the various internal systems.
