Description

VIDEO AS AN EXPRESSION OF SELF IN THE ENVIRONMENT
Minoosh Zomorodinia
6 sessions >> Tuesdays, September 18–October 23
6:30–9:30pm, Studio 8, $295
No prerequisite.

This six-session course will investigate the relationship between “Self" and the environment in contemporary art. The course encourages students to choose from objects they find around them and to explore their personal relationship with these items to make art imbued with their own unique perceptions. The focus is on identity. We will be looking deeply at surroundings and students will be encouraged to find a "new concept” of Self in the environment, then visualize it through creation of a video installation. The course will look at artists such as Nam June Paik and Bill Viola’s use of video in installation.
