Documentation Practices
0.50 Credit(s)
Non-fiction practices span numerous possibilities in terms of genres and formal structures: documentary film and video, archival reproduction, installation (whether interactive or projection-based), web-based works, activist initiatives, or other experimental forms. Documentation engages a number of formal, practical and theoretical concerns: issues of history, autobiography, subjectivity and objectivity, ethical responsibilities to subjects and audiences, political challenges, authorial voice and perspective, aesthetic experimentation and issues related to censorship. This studio course requires students to consider various stages of production, and to produce a short work, installation or web-based piece that engages in documentation practices.
Notes: Priority in registration is given to Integrated Media Majors.
