Abstract: Phallonopticism comes from the confluence of the term “phallus” and “panopticon.” I define Phallonotpicism as the configuration of gaze, power and desires specific to but not limited to male performances. By utilizing the term phallonopticism as a heuristic category for analysis, this paper attempts to analyze how Malate’s urban spaces of consumption are gendered. It attempts to map the topography of male homosocial intersubjectivities and the production of desire, power and gaze through male performances, visual culture and structures. Orosa Street is known as the GLTB consumption district of Malate while just a block away, is Bocobo Street, where a “straight” and “heterosexual” male population dwell. The dominance of male homosociality along the said streets has been established through research findings from 2002 - 2009. Through the confluence of political- economic discourse and psychoanalysis this paper will argue that Malate’s urban spaces inform the male subject construction and formation. Furthermore, male homosocialities in both streets activate the production and consumption of gendered spatial politics through complex forms of surveillance, discipline, resistance, and subversion from its stakeholders such as state institutions, the market and Malate’s public.

Abstract: Purpose: To investigate clinical features, causative organisms and their antibiotic sensitivity, management, and visual acuity outcomes of eyes with bleb-related endophthalmitis (BRE). Design: Retrospective, noncomparative, consecutive eye series. Methods: Clinical and microbiological records of patients with culture positive bleb-related endophthalmitis treated at a single institution between April 1995 and February 2002 were revised retrospectively. Main Outcome Measures: Final visual acuity, loss of eye and complications. Results: There were 34 cases with presenting visual acuities ranging from 20/200 to light perception. Decrease of visual acuity was the most frequent sign (94%) followed by pain (79%) and hypopyon (53%). Associated features included pseudophakia (79%), vitreous wick (29%), and wound leak (12%). The most frequent organisms isolated from vitreous specimens, were streptococcus species (55%) and gram positive coagulase negative staphylococci (20%). Polymicrobial growth was noted in 27% of cases. The cultured organisms were sensitive to antibiotics used in 94% of cases. Treatment modality used was vitreous tap with antibiotic injection without (65%) or with vitrectomy (35%). The most common intravitreal antibiotics combination was vancomycin with ceftazidime, Intravitreal dexamethsone was administered in 56% of cases. Final visual outcome of 20/400 or better was noticed in 50% of cases without and 33% with vitrectomy, but this was not statistically significant (p=0.45). The difference in final visual acuity of cases infected by gram-positive coagulase-negative staphylococci and streptococcus species were not statistically significant (p= 0.18). Overall, final visual outcome of 20/400 or better was noticed in 47% of cases, while no light perception was recorded in 8 (24%) cases. Of no light perception cases 7 underwent evisceration or enucleation. Overall, 32% of the cases experienced other complications like retinal detachment with dislocated intraocular lens, phthisis bulbi, and epiretinal membrane formation. Conclusion: BRE is associated with substantial visual morbidity. Prompt treatment of BRE with intravitreal vancomycin and broad spectrum antibiotics recommended while culture results are pending. Neither tap-injection with vitrectomy nor tap-injection without vitrectomy proved superior in the management of this condition.

Abstract: Visual ethnography is a kind of ethnographic filming which aim is to gather visual information and to help analyzing the data in the process of a research. It can help also to enhance communication between researcher and his subjects in the field or between researcher and the audience. Because of the prevailing use of a camera visual ethnography is called also camera-ethnography. This field of anthropological activity is raising different questions. The basis of visual literacy in this case is a general cinematographic language. First question is: how much knowledge does a researcher need to have if he or she is using a camera in the field? What is the difference between TV production of documentary and the production of visual ethnography? How to construct a visual narrative to keep a relevant information about the culture in question and how to avoid the stress on emotional experience and dramatic suspense, characteristic for artistic or commercial filmmaking? New visual technology is opening many new possibilities in approaching people. How close can we go in approaching people not to step over the thin line of unethical behavior?.

Abstract: The gap between the digital era in undeveloped places, in the 21st century, is an important issue to be discussed. Based in the research called Antenna and Roots, developed at the Fine Art School at the Federal University of Bahia, Brazil, called Antenna and Roots, this paper proposes a dialogue between Visual Culture and contemporary visual languages, creative process, its methodology, and how the students are encourage to investigate with low tech equipments, certain that what makes a good art work is not only the equipment, but how an artist approaches material, equipments, etc., in order to materialize ideas, along the knowledge and understand about the world they live, without illustrating theories.

Abstract: In this article we suggest an approximation between media education and visual arts education. Teachers of Primary School interpret the media as a visual artefacts. But this visual artifacts can be analyzed from the education in visual arts. We can offer a suitable formation in the moment on training teachers (Clarembeaux, 2010; Huerta, 2005), but is also necessary move a notion of visual arts. Now, in Spain, visual arts education is far from the media images. We would incorporate the media education in the Primary School curriculum from the visual arts education (Hernández, 2000; Huerta, 2009). We focuses this research in a case of student’s group. They are university training teachers, and we verify their knowledge about cinema and media as a visual culture texts, promoting a major presence of media in visual arts, extending the field of action, and promoting the use of the cinema as useful tool in the Primary School classes. We encourage teachers and students towards the critical and personal readings in media, reforcing knowledge and analysis more than entertainment (Ambrós & Breu, 2007; Fedorov, 2010). For analyze this situation we have chosen the movie Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea, a film by Hayao Miyazaki.

Abstract: This paper aims to explore the influence of culture over design. Plain design is a means for visual communication, however, it does not just convey information, but also needs to introduce more people and events. To put it in other words, plain design aims to arouse the resonance of its targeted groups so as to move people’s heart. The creation of a designer is, to great extent, influenced by his or her national or regional culture.
