Yes- the pricy little book about bats!
I'm sure what she says will be amusing.

We used her continuum plan (goals, concepts, exemplar,
processes, product-in whatever order you conceive of
them)...I love the ideas I came up with using this
little thought stimulator. Have you tried it?

Professor had us begin with visual culture as a
cultural exemplar. Several classmates came up with
some cool things - one product was an ad about ads.
From my perspective, a lot of us fell back on what our
comfort levels were: ad art, murals (outsider art),
and I guess what might fall under some kind of museum
culture label(Pop art, ad for museum show, etc.)

We didn't have any readings on visual culture. I
still don't feel totally comfortable with it.
Especially aesthetically, but I'm glad to be able to
hash it out here. Professor says its not such a big
deal - that I should not to get too bogged down, but I
do have a tendency to overthink things.
