  • Hampshire GA decided to base our annual competition on the GA’s manifesto “A Different View”. What follows are some examples of seeing the world differently. The aim is to ask students to find “A Different View” and write about its geography.
  • This is not trick photography! although it is at 90 o . The man is gripping on for all his might with his knees! I ljke this because it is contemplative about a different view.
  • The next slides are offered to get students to think. Some don’t need explanation
  • There are many directions and technologies to view the world!
  • What map projection we use really changes our view of the world!
  • Satellite imagery – both are false colour satellite images.
  • We normally look at flowers front-on. What could we learn if we studied the back-view?
  • What would one think of “home” if this was it? Could talk about: contrast the cable car approach with students’ usual driveway ! Home is getting away from it all Foundations How long might it remain?

    1. 1. “ A Different View” 2009-2010 competition Sponsored by University of Sussex
    2. 3. ...and this can be anything you want it to be! We want you to think about the world from “a different view”...
    3. 5. “ wet ragged long winter underwear, hung out to dry”
    4. 6. South Downs Summer Winter
    5. 7. The view from behind...
    6. 8. Would your concept of home change if it was here?
    7. 9. The world viewed at the same level as soil bugs...
    8. 10. What does the world look like during a bungee jump?
    9. 11. An example, but remember – you can take any approach or style you wish! <ul><li>What can we think about roads? </li></ul>
    10. 12. Roads – an escape route! Between the passions of cities and pale towns lie unrequited distances empty stretches of unnamed landscape curving and lifting in a sleep of light where the soul travels far out into wide fields and wilderness James Griffin Idyllic! The road ends here. Away from it all. A little piece of wilderness in a crowded country. A chance for a “must-have” holiday, to restore one’s energies for a return to the fray of a western lifestyle.
    11. 13. Roads – a lifeline! I want to be by the roadside – I’ll wait days if I have to. Disaster has struck this region and the UN convoy is bringing relief supplies to us. The best chance of survival is to be along the roadside. People are lucky if their homes are here. My cousins live 23 miles from here – we don’t know if they have heard that help is arriving, but they may be too weak to come anyway.
