Video Art

In this course, students gain experience using time-based practices and the moving image to explore the notion of Video Art.  The advent of image-based technologies has heightened our understanding of the connection between art, media, and technology.  We consider these concepts while focusing on the key differences between Video Art and Cinema.  The Video Art course does not utilize traditional aspects of film making such as a concrete narrative or plot line.  Instead, it relies on aspects of representation, durations, subject, repetition, frame, performance, sound, and presentation as forms of visual expression.  We address and explore the two most common methodologies for presentation; single channel and installation techniques.
