Montage: Film in Design

Spring 2020

Taught By: Ulrich Lehmann

Section: A

CRN: 7665

Credits: 3

Students in ‘Montage’ work on how film is designed and how design is filmed. We combine practice and theory in studio- and seminar settings; producing work individually and in groups, inside and outside the university. The interplay between film and design is crucial for the creation and mediation of contemporary objects – whether they are produced essentially for usage or representation, or become subsumed in the respective fields of cinema, art or design. Digital media and a culture of instant consumption have turned moving images into objects within cultural, economic and social processes of exchange. These objects are simultaneously generated and represented by filmic techniques, so that they become cyphers in communication for adverts, art works, social and political life. We discuss through creative work and critical texts the influence of cinematic techniques on design processes and the work by designers on forms of representation and communication. ‘Montage’ describes a formal method of designing objects and moving images as much as an approach to creatively combining research materials for creative practice.

Open to: All university undergraduate degree students. Pre-requisite(s): first-year university writing course and at least two prior history or methods course in art, media, film, or visual culture. One of these courses should be 3000-level.
