Video 2: Experimental Strategies

Student final projects grow out of one of their previous projects. Students write 200-300 word proposals that outlines how they will expand and improve the work and in which direction(s).

New Media Robotics

Create a significant 3D kinetic or interactive artwork, using Arduino. The concept of your work should inform the way it is presented. Your work must be shown in its completed form on the class critique date. That includes finished framing or sculptural presentation.

Digital Imaging - Final Project

Create a significant digital artwork, or series of works that are presented outside of the computer. The concept of your work should inform the way it is presented. It could be printed out using the ink-jet printers, printed by a company, made into a book, incorporated into an internet artwork, a QuickTime movie, etc. Your work must be shown in its completed form on the class critique date. That includes finished framing or sculptural presentation.

Digital Imaging - Composit Still Life

Take what we know about still life images and bring that into the Digital Realm.  On computers we can easily composite, collage, appropriate, alter, draw, erase, and layer a variety of elements – photographic, scans, computer generated drawings, etc into the same space. Consider how objects and their physical properties can be revealed in context of a digitally-composited construction.

Digital Imaging - E-Scape

This project focuses on how and where we live, and how our lives have become entwined with technology. How do we use technology, and how do we get used by technology? Just as important, what is technology? What does all this mean about who we are and who we are becoming?

Digital Imaging -  GIFs

Make a GIF using Photoshop. You can manipulate an existing artwork or create one from your own drawings or photos. Take a look at the artist examples first, then check out the demos to get started using the timeline panel in Photoshop.

Intro to New Media - Materialized

Materialized will be how you present your work in our class final exhibition. Consider all of the work you’ve made over the course of the semester and distill what you are most proud of into a final presentation of that work. This is not an exhaustive presentation - do not include everything you’ve made. Rather, use this exhibition as an opportunity to hone in on your best work.

Expanded Media -
Performance + Video

Performance:

Consider the history of performance art as well as the working contemporary performance and socially engaged artists we've discussed in class. This project may (or may not) be autobiographical in content. You will either perform for the class or engage the class in some way.

Final:

Create a significant artwork that is presented in some form relatable to Expanded Media: sound, video, performance, social engagement. The concept of your work should inform the way it is presented.
