This seminar will engage New York City and Europe as creative laboratories for contemporary media arts. We will explore diverse mediums in moving image arts including video, photochemical film, and installation. Through a combination of coursework and visits to film festivals, artist-run spaces, studios, galleries, and museums, students will expand their understanding of contemporary media.

Students will develop technical and conceptual skills, and practice both collaborative and independent approaches to media production and study. Specialized workshops will introduce students to new tools for their own creative projects.
