SART 17.20 Video Art

This theory/practice studio course explores the medium of video as an art form. Through a survey of historical and contemporary works, students will examine how history, access, culture and technological shifts have influenced and changed how artists work with the moving image and time-based media. From early portable video rigs and live video to the use of animation, netart, streaming video, and memes, the course will unpack role that film, video, sound, writing, performance, abstraction, installation, structure, streaming and narrative forms have played in their work. Students create individual video projects to develop their artistic voice and point of view; they engage with properties that distinguish video art practices while completing a series of creative experiments in order to develop a personal media vocabulary. Students will use video art to expand our understanding of time, space, sound, representation, and narrative.
