Adolescent health, youth participation, and Taksim square

Adolescent health, youth participation, and Taksim square | artaffect | Scoop.it

"The 10th World Congress of the International Association for Adolescent Health, held in conjunction with the 49th Congress of the Turkish Pediatric Association in Istanbul on June 11—13, was a conference with a difference. The presentations on wellbeing of adolescents in vulnerable environments, and on introducing the voice of young people into the policy debates that affect their health, became eerily all the more relevant when riot police first moved into Istanbul's Taksim square on Tuesday, June 11, a mere 10 minutes walk from the conference venue. The planned combined opening ceremony had to be cancelled to allow safe return to their accommodation for participants. Many of the youth representatives—largely Turkish medical students—joined the demonstrators at Taksim square in the evenings after attending the conference."

IN PURSUIT OF SILENCE Trailer No. 1 - YouTube

THE FILMMAKERS RECOMMEND YOU WEAR HEADPHONES TO VIEW THIS TRAILER. "In Pursuit of Silence" is a meditative feature documentary about the value of silence, ou...
Laçin T.'s insight:

I haven't watched the documentary (yet). From what it looks in this trailer, silence is deemed a more powerful last resort or something like that whereas sounds are both violating and liberating the daily routine, general emotional state of the masses... Towards  the end, one scene shows a large group of people in a seemingly corporate space, paused, without sound. That's the moment I recalled why photographers love drawing with light, and not with noise. 

 

It's equally possible to think of sight equally invasive and hostile, and prefer to draw with sounds -audiographing.

 

One objection here, though: If something is invasive, trying to be all-present and ready to take space violently, massively, being here and there either softly-yet-determinately expanding or disturbingly loud, that thing is not necessarily powerful. That thing is more likely weak.
