This class will address the theory, tools and techniques employed in the digital creation of graphic/text artwork. Using computer software and digital printers we will examine various approaches to creating image/text combinations in the traditions of graphic novels, manga, and contemporary painting. The most important software will be Photoshop and students must have a basic understanding of that package. Software instruction will include more complex strategies in Photoshop as well as introductions to Illustrator, Manga Studio, Poser, and Zax Animator. Although animations are a potential area of expression, this class will focus primarily on printed images, alone, and in sequence. The class will explore theories of how realism, iconography, and cartoon illustration intersect text as an art form.

This is a course intended to give students a better understanding of live video production as a vehicle for artistic expression. Course participants develop ways of working with video's most unique property: its ability to produce an immediate and continuous stream of images and sounds. Surveillance, streaming media, spinning, call-in talk shows, and cell phone usage have primed audiences and spectators to expect immediate access to and feedback from their media. How does the media artist respond? Course participants will work on individual projects using cameras, monitors, switchers, surveillance systems, and software-based video mixers. We will also work collectively to produce one live piece which will be broadcast to an audience. In addition, we will carry on a continued discussion about the larger cultural and psychological impact of live video production. This conversation will be supplemented by readings and viewings of work by Nam Jun Paik, Richard Serra, Dan Graham, Rosalind Krauss, Raymond Carver, Julia Scher, the Surveillance Camera Players, and others.
