This advanced studio/seminar course examines the intersection between still and moving photography and provides a rigorous environment for cross-disciplinary dialogue. Students will pursue self-directed photo and/or video projects while developing a common critical vocabulary and communicative tools. Regular group discussion will challenge, complicate, clarify and deepen students understanding of their work in progress as they resolve its production both formally and conceptually.
In addition to studio work outside of class, course members will engage with assigned readings and spend time writing about their own and each others art making practices. Students should emerge from this course with the ability to situate their work in relation to that of other artists, both contemporary and historical, as well as to some important critical texts. Class time will be devoted to large and small group critiques, artist presentations, discussions of texts, and the workshopping of writing.
