Auto Fictions

Kevin Cunningham

Auto Fictions is a studio class focusing on the creation of immersive, multi-path and interactive experiences based on personal narrative. Documentary art has included the art of installation for decades, but new technologies have given artists affordable tools that allow them to rapidly prototype and then refine immersive media experiences. The course centers on the creation of live experiences within a surround video mapped space that incorporates immersive audio and can include interactive elements. Autofictions is an interdepartmental course that may include students from Film, ITP and Theater disciplines. Students will create interdisciplinary production teams. Each team will make an original project and students will help each other create their work through intensive collaboration.
