Advanced Digital Imaging Exhibition OPENING: Beyond Reality

Dean's Lounge Gallery

April 11, 2019 6:00 PM - April 25, 2019

“Beyond Reality” is an exhibition of Advanced Digital Imaging Spring 2019 and consists of works-in-progress and short study projects created in class in response to studies in gesture, emotion, the human body, virtual and augmented realities, and expanded notions of perception. Included in the exhibition are multimedia, photography, and customized gesture drawings, archival digital and hand drawn works on paper, vellum, canvas, acetate, and other materials. Many of the artworks have AR (Augmented Reality) elements that dialog with, and extend the reach of, the physical works using animation, video and sound. Delving into memory, race, narrative, and spatial perception, the works generate a critical awareness of the many dimensions of our world that shape thoughts, feelings and behaviors.  These studies will lead to larger final projects at the end of the semester. Readings for the course include literary works from Saunders, inspirational texts from King, treatises by Galileo, theoretical works from Sacks, Barthes, Isles, Manovich, MoHoly-Nagy, as well as relevant technical readings and cognitive studies from Solso. 
Advanced Digital Imaging ARTS-4860-01 and ARTS-6860-01 is an upper level studio and seminar that explores individual visual and multimedia arts projects contributing to thesis or dissertation development. Topics in creative expression in advanced imaging, spatial studies, perception, digital/physical multimedia practices and emerging genres are examined from issues raised in class projects. Advanced studies can include high resolution digital photography, emotion, gesture, assemblage, projection, VR and augmented realities. The studies lead to an independent final project and web portfolio.
