Spring 2022

Taught By: Ben Thorp Brown

Section: A

CRN: 1925

Credits: 3

This course will explore the intersection of video, installation, and artwork made with living systems. Whether through small organisms, animals, plants, or humans—we will develop work that investigates our social and ecological environment. In the first half of the semester, students will develop a variety of skills in both 4D media ranging from advanced cinematography techniques, field recording, and performance practice. Alongside, students will be asked to care for a living organism, and develop new work in dialogue with this practice. Artists practices such as Agnes Denes, Lynne Hershman Leeson, Pierre Huyghe, Apichatpong Weerasethakul, Robert Irwin, Rosemarie Trockel will be discussed alongside critical writing from thinkers such as Emanuele Coccia, Ted Chiang, and Donna Haraway.

Section: A

CRN: 1959

Credits: 3

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.
