Syllabus Description:

This course develops  a "new genre" attitude toward exploration and research in contemporary art. Introduces the history and practice of conceptually-based art, with emphasis on time-based media such as performance, video, sound, and interactive installation. We will consider how time can be used as a tool that affects how objects function, how environments are perceived, and how experiences are shared. Students will expand their problem solving abilities while being challenged to identify the appropriate form or medium to express their ideas and content.
