Digital Remix: Pushing Boundaries
More than ever, pictures have become a part of our contemporary experience and their wide availability presents today’s artists with an embarrassment of riches. Artists need to be innovative and intentional when finding and developing visual source material for their work. This course offers a hands-on approach to creating personal archives, iconogrpahies, and narratives, to be used in the production of work – with an emphasis on experimentation. Students will be encouraged to pursue an interdisciplinary approach while discovering various methods by which to make artwork. During class hours, photography and video will be explored as a means for generating images, and as tools for conceptualizing paintings, drawings , sculptures, or mixed-media projects. Screenings and lectures will supplement class discussions. By the end of the semester, students will have generated new material and conceptual strategies to support their studio practice and developed a technical understanding of working with digital media.
Note: Open to students from all departments .
