STUDENT WORK - EXPERIMENTAL & DOCUMENTARY VIDEO

COURSE: Intro to Digital Media

Students worked with HD video cameras, LED studio lighting, and lavalier and boom microphones over the course to create two short video projects.

(Software: Adobe Premiere)


STUDENT WORK - ANIMATION & CREATIVE CODING

COURSE:  Intro to Computing in the Arts

All animations were created with creative coding rather than traditional animation techniques.

The code was used to created short 8K animations that were screened for the class final.

(Software: Processing Software, a JAVA based program)


STUDENT WORK - PROJECTION MAPPING & PHYSICAL COMPUTING

COURSE: Time & Process: Digital Media II

An advanced production level course where students worked with time based media to create projection mapped or interactive video installation projects.

(Software: VPT Projection Mapping Software)

"PharmaTable"

An installation that critiques the distorted relationship in American society to agricultural practices, pharmaceuticals, and the foods we consume. Mounted projectors point down on the table and map the videos directly onto the mock picnic plates confronting the viewer directly with the side effects inherent in the new American “lifestyle”.

"A Watched Clock Never Ticks"

A sound responsive video installation featuring a clock that only moves when sound is present in the installation space. A comment on time as a relative concept in terms of perception.

"Repressed Utterances"

An interactive performance using animated code from Processing, projection mapping on the body, and physical computing to detect the performers’ screams. All words “ingested” into the body were actual insults and slurs the artists had directed at themselves. Through the cathartic act of screaming the words are expelled from the body and are no longer internalized.

"Overblown Redux"

Inspired by the history of liquid light shows and live video performance, the students created a performative video piece featuring live mixing of filters and microscopic cellular imagery.

"Trying to Remember"

A grid of sticky notes is used as the canvas for snippets of home movies and family footage that animate across the grid. The piece addresses issues such as the ephemeral nature of memories and how they change over time.


STUDENT WORK - SOUND

COURSE: Various, Upper Level Portfolio

Sound projects were made as parts of various courses where assignments were open ended and for portfolio development.


STUDENT WORK - 3D DESIGN & 3D PRINTING

COURSE: Intro to Computing in the Arts

Students created 3-dimensional mesh models using 3D modeling software and also photogrammetry techniques.

These 3D models were output on a MakerBot 3D printer and incorporated as a component of their final projects.

(Software: 123D Design, 123D Catch, MeshMixer, and MakerBot 3D Printer)
