Experimental Processes With Photo-Based Images
Continuing Education Course
Digital processes and effects are so ubiquitous that they have lost a great deal of their kick. Now is the time to get back to basics, to produce work that wows the viewer with a simple economy of means. This course will explore traditional media and bring them “kicking and screaming” into the 21st century. Students will use these processes as the building blocks to create cutting-edge work. Processes that will be explored include transfer emulsions, photograms, collage/montage, mixed media on canvas and camera obscura, as well as digital woodcut. In addition, we will examine the technique of capturing archival footage so that it can be embedded in works of art. Projects will incorporate the methods covered in class, as well as your own innovations. We will also survey contemporary artists who work with these processes.
