Fall 2018 · 3 members


Taught by Nina Barbuto

Section B will focus on Mediascapes in respect to 2D to 3D Spatial Environments. Students will be asked to actively participate as they discuss, analyze, define, and apply theory to their projects. They will also be asked to investigate precedent and existing experiences to remix and make new. Imagination, speculation, and 360-degree awareness are key components of this class. Over the course, students will work on projects that build upon their knowledge to showcase their intentions and creativity within and reacting to a variety of contexts. Students with a diverse range of skills and interested are encouraged to apply. This is a project-based class with a focus on experimentations, hands-on learning, reflection, and documentation.
