This class aims to explore the rich interactions that arise from the integration of multimedia (video, sound, film, etc.) with performance as well as performance techniques incorporated into video and sound works. The class will focus on how media can expand the narrative and visual potential of performance and vice-versa, and will include technical instruction on video and sound editing, scripting methodologies, and logistical planning. Students will also learn historical aspects of Performance and Multimedia, as well as related forms such as the circus, opera, and cabaret. Students will take an in depth look at the work of seminal artists who have made defining contributions to the field such as Merce Cunningham, John Cage, Laurie Anderson, The Wooster Group, Gob Squad, William Kentridge, Liz Magic Laser, Kalup Linzy and many others.

Spring 2021

Taught By: Tamar Ettun

Section: A

CRN: 1925

Credits: 3

This class will explore the interaction and integration of new media with textile work, including weavings, tapestries, fiber arts, inflatables, and wearable sculptures. We will focus on the collision of traditional textile craftsmanship with installation, performance and video, and observe how the old and new extend and challenge each other. In the first half of the semester, students will learn a variety of skills such as natural/synthetic fabric dyeing, sewing, pattern making, weaving, and collage. Techniques are designed to work from home using home supplies and economical materials. Later the students will implement these techniques and incorporate them into their own 4D projects. The students will research artists that have pushed the boundaries of textile within time-based work, including: Nick Cave, Cecilia Vicuna, Ann Hamilton, Eric N. Mack, to harness what they learn when creating their own work. Students will meet with a variety of makers and see art spaces that exist on the seam between 4D and textiles.
