SART 291 Media Art IV
This course is intended to advance technical and conceptual development of time-based art practices and begin the development of independent art making. Students begin to compile documentation of their media art practice, and think about the specific modes of presentation related to media art. Students examine the theoretical, cultural and critical discourses that surround new media technologies, while moving forward with their own material production. They continue to become critically aware of national and international art practices while discussing and creating art from a critical perspective.

This course is intended to advance technical and conceptual development of Media Art practices and begin the development of independent art making, proposal writing and thematic art production. Students create a project based on appropriation, while discussing issues of authorship, originality and the reinterpretation of history. They go on to develop a self portrait in any of the disciplines covered in Media Art, and finally propose and create an independent project at the end of the term.
