ARTSTUDI 174B: Creativity in the Age of Facebook: Making Art for and from Networks

This class explores the history, practice and technique of creating art on and for the internet. Discussions, projects and readings focus on the ways in which internet art embodies changing ideas about artistic creation, technology, and interactivity as a way of blurring the line between artist and audience. Setting recent work against the backdrop of earlier moments in contemporary art (found object art, photomontage), this course also situates internet art in the pre-internet tradition of finding new perspectives on, and meanings in, overfamiliar or banal media surroundings. In collaborative and individual projects, students will create visual compositions on online platforms such as NewHive and explore social media interventions, Twitter experiments, crowdsourced work, collections of online found imagery, supercuts, GIFs, and "choose your own adventure"- style online storytelling.

The class is intended for artists, composers and others who want to explore the spatial, social and aesthetic dimensions of sound. Assigned readings will cover sound practices in the contexts of art, music, sound studies and anthropology. Experience in sound recording or production, signal processing and spatialization, or installation are valuable but not required. Curiosity and attention to sounds are.

Using a 'do it yourself' approach, we will create short films in response to key concepts in cinema. In this course, we will experiment with unconventional and traditional methods of filmmaking that employ a diverse range of media. Together, we will devise strategies to work around resource limitations and consider how simple technologies can be tools for making thought-provoking cinematic experiences. Through workshops, discussions, and film screenings, we will explore the possibilities and significance of filmmaking in the 21st century.

ARTSTUDI 180: Media Art in the Age of Surveillance (ARTSTUDI 280)

How can media art practices effectively interrogate our data environment? This studio course investigates systems that collect personal data, such as video and consumer databases, by turning their regulatory, contractual and legislative frameworks onto the systems themselves. Techniques include the `legal readymade', `tactical fiction', and algorithmically-driven discourse. A field trip will introduce drone mapping and choreographing. Assignments include individual projects, and class collaboration on a video that assembles our various approaches into a hybrid fiction-documentary. No prerequisites; basic video skills helpful.
