As the capstone of your foundation education, this course requires that you work
independently and start developing your creative voice. While emphasizing both theory and
practice, we will focus on developing concepts that are meaningful to you. Each assignment
will be explained through videos, websites and multimedia presentations. You are expected to
participate in class discussions and critiques. Readings are provided to give you a deeper
understanding of the process of artistic creation and the motivations of artists and designers.
The work we will explore reflects the multidisciplinary nature of today’s artistic production. You
will be introduced to time-based media, site specific installations, and performance.
