VIS 1064N - Digital Imaging I
This studio course provides a foundation for students to explore the traditional elements of design via weekly assignments and semester long artistic exploration. As in most studio classes, students work to develop their ideas creatively while maintaining respect and mastery of their respective medium. Using computer-generated digital imagery, students explore the following in order to tell a story of: traditional photography; create a personalized image bank; examine positive and negative form in a composition; type as form; page layout and design composition; image as collage; traditional color theory; exploration to secure a personal voice that yields a work of art; ethical concerns regarding copyright and trademark;critical analysis of reading related to culture and perception; the history of type and universality of the art of the comic strip narrative. This class is not a tutorial for industry software programs, but rather a creative, investigative journey destined to open new vistas, promote discussions, while problem-solving all the way. Students produce a portfolio of work along with a written museum assignment that chronicles on-site research done in conjunction with a final project. Research is carried out in New York City.
