Synaesthesia, broadly defined as the cross-wiring of sensory perceptions or a synthesis of the arts, will be the lens through which students will be encouraged to design and produce innovative media works that explore our relationship to the built environment and the urban experience. The course is organized as a theory and production seminar for which students will produce art installations with a heavy emphasis on intersensory experience. Lectures and readings will focus on models of perception, relational aesthetics, and phenomenological thought as they relate to the synaesthetic inquiry. Work reviewed in the lectures will include selections from Neo-Concrete Art, Kinetic Art, Fluxus, and New Media Art, among others. Assignments will include selected readings and group discussions, a series of cumulative digital media projects, and a final installation art piece to be exhibited at the end of the semester. Students will have the opportunity to use different kinds of video, audio, and multimedia production tools for project assignments.

Prerequisite: Media Practices: Design (NMDS 5426), or Media Practices: Digital Video Production (NMDS 5428), or instructor permission.
Media Studies courses are open to all graduate students. Undergraduate Juniors and Seniors with permission from the instructor and BA/MA Media studies students should email mediastudiesadvising@newschool.edu for access.
