Class description

SU 2012: Intro to New Media Art

This studio course introduces students to digital media production in the context of contemporary visual arts and the exploration of images in space and time. Students will engage in two projects that will be complimented with in class discussions, lectures, and lab exercises. For these projects, we will explore various techniques such as imagery, video, and sound and anchor these in the history, theory, and practice of the various media.
