Think Small: Compact Media

Summer 2019

Taught By: P. Crow-Kain

Section: A

CRN: 1170

Credits: 3

As media become increasingly smaller and more portable, how do designers translate design approaches and aesthetics for traditional screen- and print-based media to these compact and nano-scale platforms? This project-based production class will ask students to study the relevant historical (e.g., the short bursts of language in a telegraph message, cameo portraits, etc.), theoretical, and artistic (e.g., Goya's "Caprichios," Hemingway's six-word novel form) predecessors to small-scale design to prepare them to develop a specific visual and/or narrative language for each of several production assignments. Assignments completed both individually and in small groups will involve prose and verse as well as still images, audio and video. All assignments will focus on media that is either small in size or brief in duration in order to develop a better understanding compact design.

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.
