Video in Context|
We live in a world where screens are often taken for granted. How has the omnipresence of video transformed visual perception? This course will focus on video installation and the ways video can shift our relationship to objects, space, and each other. Students will experiment with lighting and environment building, paying particular attention to how surfaces are transformed by the lens. We will explore projection mapping, live-streaming, installation, and the peculiarities of the screen. We will look at works by artists who have emphasized the physicality or immateriality of video through installation and web-based art. We will read a variety of texts, charting the shifting role video has played in contemporary society. Through weekly exercises and regular group critiques, we will begin to unpack how the videos we make contact with daily shift our relationship with both our own bodies and the material world.
