Prerequisite: 8.0 credits, including all first-year requirements (5.0 credits)
Developing work for exhibition outside of the cinema is becoming increasingly prevalent amongst media artists. As the possibilities for projection multiply, contemporary artists are in a position to consider and develop modes of presentation previously unavailable. Screen to Space investigates alternative modes of presentation by considering the history of the projected image and the practices of artists working within spatial environments. With an emphasis on the theoretical and conceptual concerns facing media artists working outside of the black box, we will first consider the space of the cinematic screen, and then look toward artists working to expand the screen both outward into physical space and inward into virtual space. Stemming from a DIY attitude, the studio element of the course will focus on developing new and inventive modes of presentation through the experimentation of various screening materials, methods of projection and exhibition spaces. Topics to be discussed will include: projected light, multiple screens, augmented realities, mobile devices, 3D imagery, fractured narrative, expanded cinema, and site specific work.
Notes: Please take special note that this course has material fees associated with it.
