ARTS 222 - Video Art: Image Recycling (SA)
An introduction to the artistic practice of experimental video production, with a special emphasis on the practical, aesthetic and ethical issues associated with creating new artworks which use pre-existing or “found” material: archival documents, advertisements, pop cultural detritus, etc. Special attention will be paid to works of moving image art bridging boundaries between the art world, experimental cinema, amateur or “outsider” art and/or popular cultural production. Technical skills in image-based research, collection, curating and editing are introduced in hands-on labs and further developed through a series of short assignments and exercises. This course focuses on editing, sound design and other aspects of post-production; video production (camera) skills will not be emphasized. Equipment is provided by the department. ARTS 222 is designed to complement ARTS 221; the two courses emphasize different aspects of artistic creation in video and can be taken sequentially (in any order).
