Need your critical eyes

Hi folks,

My academic unit wants to rebrand and as a consequence is working on a new logo. I am a documentary filmmaker and have worked on logo designs in the past but am no expert. before i share my opinions with my colleagues and the graphic artist, I would love your input. Our department offers a BA and MA in communication with concentrations in rhetoric, speech communication, health communication, media studies and production. Thank you so much!

Cindy, could you explain why the designer chose those particular shapes and what they represent? Did he/she give an explanation?

First symbol is more fitting for a photography business (due to crop/frame bracketing). Also the arrow contraption looks forced. Furthermore I'm not sure why arrows meet off-center and why they form a loop. I guess, basically, I'd like to echo James' question - what's the rationale behind the symbol?

Second symbol is just a knitting machine of some sort, sorry.
