Time-based Media

The Time-based media area of concentration focuses on the creation of artwork that is temporal in character. Students within time-based media explore a number of methods and forms to define personal and/or collaborative practices such as, web media, digital video, experimental animation, interactive installation, and performance art. Technical instruction is woven with conceptual and methodological approaches to time-based media. Students are asked to develop innovative approaches to time-based media within the discourses of contemporary theory and art practice. test...

Time-based Media Courses

ARTS 255 Introduction to Time-based Media

This course introduces students to basic concepts and methods commonly used in the production of time-based media as it is employed in an art context. The course provides a technical foundation for subsequent time-based media courses by introducing students to a variety of techniques used for the creation of screen-based works of art such as non-linear video editing, sound, and video compositing. The course also introduces students to historic and contemporary practitioners.

Prereq: ARTS 127

ARTS 355 Introduction to Web and Interactive Media

This course introduces students to the fundamentals of web-based and interactive works of art. The course introduces students to appropriate scripting languages used to create web-based and interactive work. Conceptual and methodological approaches to web and interactive media are discussed. No previous programming experience is necessary.

Prereq: ARTS 127

ARTS 356 Installation and Performance

This course examines methods and materials for the creation and documentation of site-specific and performative works of art. Students create work that explores the integration of video, interactivity, and performance within a physical environment. Concepts of corporeality, duration/endurance, material methodologies and space are discussed as they pertain to visual art.

Prereq: ARTS 255, ARTS 355, or instructor approval

ARTS 357 Intermediate Time-based Media

This course introduces students to advanced concepts and methods used in the production of time-based media as it is employed in an art context. Narrative, non-narrative, and performance structures are further explored. Additional methods of production, such as experimental animation, are introduced. The exhibition of scree-based work, both within the gallery and alternative venues, is further investigated.

Prereq: ARTS 255

ARTS 358 Intermediate Web and Interactive Media

This course further explores web-based and interactive works of art. Conceptual and methodological approaches to web and interactive media are further discussed. The course explores web memes and their role in visual art. Interactive environments and physical computing are introduced. The exhibition of interactive and net-based work, both within the gallery and alternative venues, is further investigated.

Prereq: ARTS 355

ARTS 455 Advanced Time-based Media I

Intensive studio that students begin to explore personal and aesthetic issues through independently driven assignments, class critiques, and visual and written materials, in the pursuit of creating a body of work or larger work. Students must demonstrate a conceptual, technical, and methodological understanding of time-based media. Work produced can explore any genre of time-based media including but not limited to: web media, digital video, experimental animation, interactive installation, and performance art.

Prereq: ARTS 357, ARTS 358

ARTS 456 Advanced Time-based Media II

Intensive studio furthering the exploration of personal and aesthetic issues that students begin in ARTS 455 Advanced Time-based Media I. Students must demonstrate a conceptual, technical, and methodological understanding of time-based media. Work produced can explore any genre of time-based media including but not limited to: web media, digital video, experimental animation, interactive installation, and performance art. Course to be taken concurrently with ARTS 490 Capstone.

Prereq: ARTS 455
