MPFV256 Video Installation:Site, Performance, Sculpture 3cr.


Video installation is an ever-expanding contemporary art genre. This introductory course
is open to undergraduate and graduate students who are interested in learning how to create
videos and integrate them into 3D and interdisciplinary art practices. Readings,
screenings and discussions address a range of video installation art practices past and
present. Students are challenged to address various approaches to video/audio creation,
presentation styles, and the meanings created from pairing video with forms, performance or
environments. Through the semester, projects progress from assignment-based prompts to a
final, self-designed project. Technical demonstrations cover strategies and techniques
for filming, video editing in Adobe Premiere Pro, and the use and positioning of video projectors
and other devices in relationship to surfaces and forms. The goal of this class is for students to
become technically proficient in creating and combining video, audio and physical elements in
conceptually cohesive ways. [Formerly titled Intro to Video Installation]
