This course will focus on installation and public practice in conversation with diverse media: video, digital, audio, photo, film, performance, architecture, and the plastic arts. The thematic focus of the seminar will critically engage issues of technology, vision, and site. Also of importance is the nature of video as electronic technology and the relationship of immediacy that it has with installation. This is a rigorous theory/practice workshop class designed specifically for Division II and III 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, three 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.
