Core Studio 1: 4D will offer students across 15 weeks an exploration into the fundamentals of 4-dimensional media. This course investigates a delimited but non-prescriptive constellation of elements foundational to the aesthetic and material operations of time and movement. Different sections of Core Lab 1: 4D offered within and across different semesters will cluster distinct combinations of three kinds of 4D media: e.g., sound, animation, interactivity or video, performance, sound. Students will receive technical instruction to become competent in each of the three media, and will be encouraged to address any given assignment through a range of time-based media exploring, for example, the intersections between video and sound. Through integrated readings and discussions, technical skill sets and historical awareness of 4D media will be taught side by side.
