Course Description: Video is the new marble. Scultpure is defined as a three-dimensional
form of artistic expression concerned with space: occupying it, relating to it, and influencing the perception of it. In this class we will look at new ways of implementing video as a medium for creating engaging interactive physical sculpture. How do we create video sculptures that move, emote and react to our presence? The course will focus on taking video off the screen and into three-dimensional space in the form of site-specific and or physical installation. Through a series of weekly experiments and assignments, students will work with projection, portable screens and physical sensors to hack light into meaningful works of art. Class will be divided between lectures, guest speakers and critical discussion/presentation of work.
Previous knowledge of video production / editing is not required but strongly recommended.
Students should document all their work and observations in the field of video sculpture on their own blog. Documentation is key!

Each week, students will create a new video sculpture assignment. These assignments will include proposals for Installations which are not set up and running by 6:29pm will be considered late.
2 late installations = automatic fail. (there are only 5 installations in the class)
Grading will be determined as follows:
Weekly assignments and maintaining online documentation 60%
In class participation/Attendance/Timeliness 10%
Final Project 30%
Students are expected to come to every class and engage actively in discussion. If for some reason you have to go to a wedding or bar mitzvah or a tornado hits your apartment please let me know before the missed class. Please pay attention during class. Laptops may be used to take notes but must be closed during student presentations out of respect to your fellow classmates. I often go over very important material in the beginning of the class as a way to discourage tardiness.
