Topics in 4D offers a focused investigation into a single topic. The topic can be focused on one specific technique or material, allow for hybrid practices or context-driven strategies, and also take on topical or contemporary themes. This class will allow students to explore these respective areas in more focus and depth, through research-based studio work. It continues to contextualize student practice within the history of 4D media. Reading in this class is seen as an integral part of student’s studio practice. Topics in fall 2013 include the following:
Painting in Motion: This studio course will offer students the opportunity to transform two-dimensional media, such as paintings, drawings, and photographs, into time-based works. The class will concentrate on the translation of collage techniques using a video layering process by which independent elements can be given motion and duration. Students will learn to work with Adobe Premiere and Adobe After Effects (a video compositing program), and master a workflow that goes from the creation of original 2D material to be collaged to various options for digitizing the material, compositing, and finally learning to output short looped “paintings in motion." The course will also address issues of scale, presentation, collaboration and public display, and it will result in a public screening of all final works. No video experience is necessary.
