Class Details

This introductory-level course offers an expansive definition of video art, exploring the overlap between video and other disciplines within contemporary art. Video art’s inherent heterogeneity is examined as a vital part of the medium’s identity and as a radical mechanism for cultural discourse. Coursework includes lectures, readings, discussions, hands-on tutorials, production assignments, and active participation in dialog/critique. Camera, sound, lighting, and editing techniques are taught alongside key theoretical, historical, and aesthetic approaches to video art. Experimentation and interdisciplinary approaches are encouraged in considering how video art hybridizes with other media, ingests emerging technologies, and develops new models and platforms for sharing work.
