Teaching

New Forms in Media

Sixty years ago, video was only seen on television. Today, the electronic moving image is also experienced via the Internet, as live performances, and within sculptures and installations on various digital platforms. This studio course will investigate how to create media art. Lens-based image acquisition with various types of video cameras (surveillance, action cameras, UHD) will be explored, as will cameras that capture RGB and depth in three dimensions. Interactive and performance video forms and their technologies will also be examined through the many ways that media art can be displayed, such as multichannel environ- ments and projection mapping. Emerging media art distribution platforms will be covered. Students will complete a project in at least two of the following mediums: Internet, installation, visual performance, interactive video, sculpture, hybrid forms.
