Teaching

Exploring Still and Moving Imagery

The practice and theory of still and motion-based imagery will be explored in this course. The theoretical function of montage will be investigated by examining how digital production tools and techniques have impacted the creation and perception of still and temporal imagery. Through the study of the history of montage and selected theoretical readings, students will place their personal practice within the broader context of digital art and culture, and translate their ideas into action through short assignments. Class time is divided between critical discussions and studio projects.
