EXPERIMENTS IN MOVING DIGITAL IMAGES
6 sessions >> Wednesdays, March 29-May 3
6:30 - 9:30pm, McMillan Conference Room & DMS2 , $275
Prerequisite: A digital camera is required for taking video and images - using your phone is fine as long as it is high quality. A basic knowledge of filming on your camera/phone, the MAC OS X platform, image correction or video editing is also helpful.
This hand-on intensive class is for beginner and advanced students who want to learn how to shoot and animate stills and video to create short experimental image loops. Using surrealist collage as our inspiration, we will play with shooting basic stop motion animation, editing techniques, creating GIFS, and short video loops. The purpose of the class is to gather and experiment with your personal imagery rather than completely master the digital tools. Short hands-on technical demonstrations and technical exercises will be alternated with brief and entertaining presentations about contemporary digital imagery, the history of animated stills, experimental animation and online art.
Victoria Scott is a visual artist working between sculpture and digital media.
Recent projects include constructing material representations of conceptual objects that exist in simulated digital environments, the public commons and in the space of cultural imagination. Her process involves working with electronic media and physical materials to create simulated and real site-specific installations, sculptures, video, GIFs and digital images.
