Expanded Media II/III - Re-corporealizing New Media
Below is a selection of student work made in my Expanded Media II/III courses at UT Austin in Fall 2018 and Spring 2019.
Student-initiated research and development of complex media art and hybrid media art projects.
In this course we will explore the spatial and emotional relationship of the human body to technology. In what ways can we embed our humanity into the field of expanded media? How can we move beyond standard or novel uses of technology to create expanded narratives? How can we deploy tools such as VR, video installation, and internet art to better explain or understand our human experience?
During the course, participants will explore creating time-based media using traditional and non-traditional platforms and technologies. Throughout the semester students will be introduced to a wide variety of artworks employing video, experimental documentary, sound, new technology, multimedia installation, internet art, software, and hybrid media art projects. Students will work in any number of these mediums during the course.
Throughout the semester we will do a variety of reading relating to bodies, space and technology.
This course offers instruction in a variety of technical instruction including: capturing and editing 360 video, editing, lighting, green screen/Cyclorama, 3D animation, game design, AR and VR. Through screenings, readings, presentations and group critiques, students will become familiar with artists who are redefining video and hybrid media art today as well as develop their own artistic voice in the expanded media field.
