INTDS 3500 Interdisciplinary Synthesis

This course builds on technical and conceptual skills specific to time based work acquired in Motion, Matter and Meaning. This course develops advanced technical skills to extend digital elements into an existing art practice. Projects originate from a student's primary focus, what they bring to the table from their major. For example: We look at how a painter can make a digital painting, or a sculptor can incorporate projection within/onto objects, how a performance artist will work with digital media, or a designer work with a project that exists wholly as a digital file. The possibilities for incorporating time-based media into traditional art practice are considered through research and experimentation. An understanding of the historical context as well as the contemporary artist working across disciplines informs assignments and projects which are aesthetically considered as well as technically proficient.
