Intermedia Performance (MPF4225.01)

Senem Pirler

In this course, we will focus on hybrid practices and explore various forms of intermedia art such as video/audio mashups, audiovisual performance and installation, movement for the camera, and sound and video for movement. The readings and discussions will give an introduction to the intermedia art practice as well as the history of early audiovisual tools, theories on audiovisual perception, video as an intermedium, and aesthetics of collage. The emphasis will be on hands-on practice: students will be encouraged to work with found/archival footage, video camera and projection techniques, sound recordings and audio transducers, as well as learn how to design their performative setups.
