Intermediate Time-Based Media
ARST 386
Spring 2020
Section: 01  

This intensive studio course will provide students with the comprehensive formal and conceptual training to create ambitious time-based media works, including experimental films, multi-channel video installations, public projections, and sound installations. Through a series of projects, students will develop a foundational understanding of camera operation, sound recording, video and sound editing, projection mapping, and installation strategies. Through screenings of historical and contemporary works, trips to museums, and presentations by visiting filmmakers and artists, students will refine their critical vocabulary and gain a broad understanding of key issues in the field. We will explore the relationship between image and sound, moving images and physical objects, and the projected image and architectural space, along with a range of conceptual and theoretical considerations. The primary aim of this course is the formulation and acceleration of each student's unique artistic language. There are no prerequisites, but the course is most suitable for students who either have a background in video (i.e., ARST 280 or related course) or who have taken another studio course in the department. Students meeting either of these criteria will receive priority in enrollment.
