Introduction to Video Art

200.00

March 25–April 15, 2019

Mondays

6–8PM

This is an introductory workshop to the use of moving images within the visual arts. Though it includes a historic overview of its origins and how it relates to contemporary art today, covering installations, video poetry, video sculpture as some of the offshoots of this medium, it is primarily a practical workshop, focusing on individual and group exercises using material appropriation, directing/being directed, sound and performance as elements in the creative process.

Group discussion and participation is encouraged in order to analyze past and present work. We will also discuss the influence of technical advance in the outcome of creativity through video. Viewing and installing proposals developed in class.

Note: There will be an overview of technical aspects such as editing, but the workshop is primarily focused on the creative possibilities of moving images and sound, regardless of technical proficiency or equipment. 


Equipment:

● Any camera with a video function, even a cellular phone. 


● External Hard Drive

● USB 2.0 (8 GB or more).

● Laptop with Photoshop, PREMIERE PRO or iMovie Software.

● Tripod (we can share)

Instructor: Gabriela Gamboa
