ARTSTUDI 165M: Practice, Practice, Practice: Cultivating Creative Rituals and Routines

Focuses on the importance of daily rituals and routines through experiments and exercises in various mediums. We divide time between examining those who create daily using meditation, writing, drawing, performance, photography and more to tackle concepts of identity, time, endurance, memory, the mundane and the miraculous and working towards our own daily practice. Students set the rules for their daily practice. All experience levels welcome.

ARTSTUDI 166: Sculptural Screens / Malleable Media (ARTSTUDI 266)

In this mixed intro and upper level studio course, students will experiment with video and computational outputs embedded in physical scenarios. What new physical formats are made possible by contemporary screen and projection-mapping technologies? How can we make expressive use of LCD screens, pico projectors, i-pad arrays, and LEDs? The class will address the screen as sculptural medium by examining established artists like Nam June Paik, Michael Snow, Tony Oursler, and Pippilotti Rist, as well as exploring emerging contemporary artists tackling this medium. Prerequisites to take the class at the 266 upper level include one of the following: Intro to Digital/Physical Design, Embodied Interfaces, Media Archaeologies, Making it with Arduino, Digital Art 1, Electronic Art or permission of instructor. The intro level 166 course can be taken with no prerequisites.

ARTSTUDI 167M: Animated By Origins: Africa and The Americas (AFRICAAM 167)

When working with experimental animation, what can we learn from the Shangaan about compositing, layering and collaging, from the Dogon about counter-rhythms and remixing, or from the Lakota about observation and improvisation? In this class, we will gain a deep understanding of and draw connections between experimental creative practices in selected indigenous/vernacular cultures across Africa and the Americas. We will do this in order to reimagine frameworks for approaching, creating and experiencing experimental media art outside Western canons. Assignments will require students to engage either their own origin stories, histories and/or other archives of their choice or interest. This source material can be personal, collective, public, general, formal, informal, real or imagined. We will look at different ways of approaching archival material (photographs, sound, video, writing, memory) for the purposes of connecting disparate elements into brief and cohesive or anti-cohesive animations. This is an introductory experimental animation class, so no prior experience of animation or video/sound editing is needed.

ARTSTUDI 168: Data as Material

How can data be used as material in art and design projects? Beyond straight-forward ideas of data-visualization, this studio course investigates how we construct meaning from sets of information, and how the construction of those sets determines the meaning itself. This course also investigates different display aesthetics and how this is also a strategy for generating meaning. Artists studied include those who use various forms of personal, public, and social data as part of their practice. Historical examples from conceptual artists and other genres are considered along with contemporary artists working with data in digital or hybrid digital/physical formats.

ARTSTUDI 169: Virtual Reality: the possibility and peril of immersive artwork

How can we use virtual reality systems to create powerful, beautiful and socially engaged artworks? Is it possible to use technically sophisticated (and sometimes frustrating) tools to share our unique personal visions? What can working in virtual reality teach us about our embodied reality and sense of presence? How might we question the hype and techno-utopianism surrounding VR, by using the medium itself? What is left out of the current conversation around VR that you would like to explore?nnIn this introductory studio art course, students will learn to create artworks using virtual reality systems. We will use the HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, and Daydream VR headsets, as well as more accessible phone-based augmented reality systems to explore this medium. Through lectures and research presentations, we will familiarize ourselves with the artistic history of VR - from foundational works from the 1990's through current examples - in order to inform our own work. nnStudents will become fami more »

Learning to analyze artwork in turn helps students create works with more emotional and conceptual impact. nnWhile there are no official prerequisites for this course, familiarity with any kind of scripting language or coding environment will be helpful as Unity will be used as the main authoring environment.

ARTSTUDI 170: Light and Shadow

Through film and dark room instruction, students learn to use a SLR 35-mm camera and to operate manual settings (focus, aperture, shutter speed). They develop an awareness of light and its various properties and possibilities. Students become familiar with black and white darkroom techniques creating contact sheets and to evaluating prints, make corrections and re-print. They acquire essential knowledge of historical and contemporary black and white art photography, including standards of quality and image sequencing. They get a basic sense of aesthetics and of the critical discourse that exists around the cultural significance of images.

ARTSTUDI 171: Introduction to Photography

This is an introductory course in photography that explores lens-based practices and the imperative of visual literacy in today's world. The history of photography starts now, in a context of image-making that proceeds all around us with unprecedented immediacy and proliferation. We cover fundamental principles of camera operation, composition and image editing. Through digital instruction, students learn to use DSLR or Mirrorless cameras and to operate manual settings (focus, aperture, shutter speed, ISO, color temp/white balance). They learn basic file management as well as the use of Adobe Lightroom software. Students acquire an essential knowledge of contemporary art photography, including standards of quality and image sequencing. They get a basic sense of aesthetics and of the critical discourse that exists around the cultural significance of images. Students provide their own DSLR or mirrorless camera.

ARTSTUDI 171M: The Photography Zine

The course combines the critical analysis and creation of photography and photo zines that explore this specific medium's experimental, social and documentary potential. A zine is a DIY small-circulation, self-published print work of original or appropriated texts and images, usually produced in small, limited quantities. Discussions, projects, and readings focus on the photography zine for the preservation of minority and marginalized interests. This course familiarizeS students with analog DIY techniques for using original and appropriated photography. Students are asked to consider how their voices can be expressed through introspection, engagement with personal history, cultural subjectivities, and activism. Students are introduced to artists who make zines and why this structure is vital to their practice and community-building efforts. Emphasis is placed on actions of presence, joy, experimentation, and intention rather than perfection. All experience levels are welcome. We visit the SFMOMA and the zine collections from the San Francisco Library and view collections from the Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art in Las Vegas, NV. Additionally, we collaborate with and attend a workshop with the Italic program at Stanford.
