Video Art

This class serves as an introduction to the use of video and time as media for artistic statement. Technical aspects of the video medium will be covered, including lighting, proper camera use, editing, and use of sound. Students will also receive lectures on the historical and contemporary issues relating to the Video Art movement. The student will be expected to create work that exemplifies both the technical knowledge gained as well as the conceptual/aesthetic practices of Cinematography and Video Art.
