This course is an opportunity to work with two experienced tutors, and aims to teach skills in two main areas:
1. Spacial installation with video projection – encompassing different approaches to the exploration of space and site through immersive and site-specific installation, and the development of digital media for projection. In the first half of this course, you will develop your own project using video installation, honing and building on new skills, understanding and developing creative ideas, and culminating in finished installations.
2. Kinetic Art – working with wood and plastic to build kinetic sculptures and installations. Using DC and digital motors to create motion and learning how to use the Arduino, LEDs, sensors and other digital components and integrate them into your art practice. In the second half of this course, you will develop a second project using movement, learning new skills such as; working with Arduino, sculpture building, electronics, soldering and the integration of circuitry into sculpture.
