Scripts can be used for videos, performances, for reading a painting, making a drawing or acting within an installation. This studio class will be focused on the role that scripts can play in creating artworks as well as how artworks themselves can operate as a script. Students working in all genres are welcome to participate and develop artworks motivated by the idea of a script. With a particular focus on identity, history and power, scripts in textual, visual, audible and other iterations will be considered through the study of contemporary and historical artworks.

Adv Practice:Methods of Motion
Spring 2024
Taught By: Damien Vera
Section: A

CRN: 13370

Credits: 3

This course will explore the reasoning and application of motion in kinetic works and sculptural forms. We will discuss what types of motions and movements are used to invoke a focused response and interactivity from the audience. We will compare the differences between natural and perceived mechanical movements, as well as manual and motorized drive systems. The main objective of the course is to question why motion would be needed in composition, what would we want to achieve through movement, and how to avoid the pitfalls common to kinetic works. The artists this course will focus on are Chico MacMurtire, Jennifer Townley, Haksul Lee, Arthur Ganson, Rebbace Horn, U-Ram Choe, Jean Tinguely, and Natsuki Takauji. We will explore why they chose to incorporate movement into their work and their choices in the type of movement they used to encapsulate their concept. Required. Safety Orientations for Wood and Metal shops. Prior basic knowledge and hands-on experience with hand tools.

Open to: All University graduate and upper level undergraduate students. Some seats reserved for MFA Fine Arts. Pre-requisite: Completion of the E4 Wood Tier 1 Orientation.
