Lecture

In our final lecture next week, we will conclude by looking at media art works that effectively engages with a range of technologies in order to call into questions many of our assumptions. We will also speculate what kind of future cultures media arts have the capacity to create as we project into our prospective courses offered in Spring.

12W Reviewing

In this session, we introduced a number of methods and strategies which should be now at your disposal:

  • Research
  • Material thinking
  • Iteration/ reflection
  • Collaboration/ jamming

If you feel stuck or that your experiments have lost direction in the past weeks, it is now time to review and reflect. Go back to:

  • the research that you have done on the theme you are exploring (weeks 7 & 8)
  • what are the questions you asking (week 8)
  • critically reflect on your experiments: what worked and what didn’t and why (weeks 7 – 9)
  • what are your individual experiments (weeks 10 – 11)

This week, I would like your team to split to produce 2 or more experiments. These differing directions can be a result of a (collegial) disagreement on the results of the above review. Again these directions need not be conflictual, in fact, it would be interesting to aim to position them in dialogue.

The existing teams are as follows:

Expressing Digitality: Textuality and Expression

Briana Williams, Lily, Kristine
Teagan, Gabrielle
Kate
Josh P

Multisensory Interaction: Light, Shadows and Displacement
Shaun, Joel, Banisha, Briana Wallace, Nathan

(Re)configuring Spacetime: Story-telling through Sound, Image, and Interaction
Meghan, Josh, Ahn, Stephanie, Kade
Maya, Jasmine, Jane, Kayla, Madeliene
Sam, Sonny, David, Steph, Chelsea, Chloe S
Mackenzie, Robert, Will, Chloe I
Jade, Hugh
Izel, Isabelle

Generativity: Difference and Repetition
Peta, Mia, Joe, Joanna, Paniti, Jordan

 

Carry on Jamming

Below are some resources that came to mind in response to the experiments that were put up last week (think of this as another way I am jamming with you):

Week 11: Alternative and Experimental Cinema

Lecture

This lecture provides an introduction to the experimental and avant-garde cinema beginning with the works of Marcel Duchamp, Man Ray, Fernand Leger, and Walter Ruttmann of the 1920s and 30s. It presents a brief overview of the trajectory of art cinema as a significant part in developing how the moving image has been and continues to be employed as a form of expressions. We look at the legacy of these experimentation in both conventional mainstream works as well as contemporary screen art.
