Time-based work is an important element of contemporary fine art and design and is fundamental to all art and design studio majors. Working in a wide range of media, students are introduced to basic concepts of art and design in time. Students will develop an understanding of temporal concerns across a wide range of time-based work including narrative, performative, spatial, tactile, and digital approaches. Assignments direct students in creating works that utilize attributes of time and movement; elements of serial, sequential, and narrative ordering; still and moving image production and editing; sound and image relations; and narrative and non-narrative approaches. Students will complete a final independent project in a time-based media of their choice. They will be introduced to the fundamental strategies used in art and design fields to conceptualize, produce, and present and independently conceived project.
