DYNAMIC INTERFACE DESIGN
Creative exploration of the expanding field of interface design for online interactive media. Emphasis will be on effective visual communication and creative content. Hands-on production will focus on design methods, multimedia web, vector-based media, and dynamic audio. Screenings and discussions on contemporary practices, and theoretical, artistic, and cultural issues.
ARCHITECTONICS & INSTALLATION
Creative inter-media collaboration within the practice in architecture, art, and design. Studio projects will emphasize the synthesis and interrelation of imaging and time-based media to spatial art forms and structures. Materials, techniques, and issues in the creation of hybrid forms, architectonics and the solution of problems. Lectures on the historic and contemporary practices of intermedia artists, designers, thinkers and scientists, coupled with readings and discussions.
MOVING IMAGE STUDIO
Creative exploration of the moving image as it relates to digital methods of animation, video, and motion graphics. Hands-on production of audio, image, text, and time-based media synthesis, with a conceptual emphasis on nonlinear narrative, communication design and visual expression. Screenings and lectures on historical and contemporary practices, coupled with readings and discussions of the theoretical, artistic, and cultural issues in the moving image.
Introduction to the design and production of three-dimensional objects and spaces using industry-standard modeling software. Overview of basic modeling, surface design and camera techniques. Emphasis on creative application of the media, in relation to architectural, experimental and time-based forms. Screenings and lectures on traditional and contemporary practices, coupled with readings and discussions of the theoretical, artistic, and cultural issues in the virtual world.
Artistic production through electronic imaging, manipulation, and design. Emphasis is on expression, continuity and sequential structuring of visuals through the integration of image, type, and graphics. Hands on production techniques of image capturing, lighting and processing are explored in conjunction with print and screen output methods. Lectures and screenings of historic and contemporary uses of technology provide a background and context for the coursework.
INTRODUCTION TO THREE DIMENSIONAL DESIGN
Introductory exploration of fundamental formal and spatial considerations when working with three-dimensional structure and form. Studio projects incorporate a range of materials and methods of visualization. Outside assignments and class discussions are aimed towards helping students enhance their creativity and spatial awareness while acquiring sensitivity for placement, process, and materials.
