INTDS 2540 Still in Motion

From the beginning of photographic practice, the displacement and reconsideration of the still image has been an ongoing intention. In a studio context this course explores the relationships formed between the still image and dynamic and evolving time-based works as illustrated by artists such as Muybridge, the Bechers, Etienne Jules Marey, Duane Michals, and Sam Taylor-Wood. The course will also encompass the contemporary use of still-based video as generated by contemporary artists in a methodology far different from cinema. The overall intent of the course is to explore the myriad possibilities, both technical and aesthetic, the still image encounters in its relationship to the moving image.
