This course will focus on live-ness in time-based media. The thematic focus of the seminar will critically engage issues of presence, process, technology, the body, and site. Of importance is the nature of video as an immediate, electronic technology as it engages with both performance and installation. This is a rigorous theory/practice workshop class designed specifically for upper division students. In this seminar, students will develop their skills within their specific media and work collaboratively throughout the semester to produce work that engages questions of site, space, time, experience and vision within an historical context. We will challenge traditional modes of production and presentation collectively. Students will focus in on their critical skills and be required to produce written responses, two visual projects, and a research project/presentation. This course will encourage students to broaden their perspective of artistic production. This will be a challenging course for serious students in the media arts.
