Art 208m (formerly 260)- 20104-8 Real and Recorded Time Arts _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ This is a three-credit introductory survey course that is a prerequisite for both the BA and the BFA degrees awarded in this department. Through a series of readings, workshops, and class assignments students will explore various not-traditional media.

Instructor: Jean Haluska E-mail: [email protected] Office Hours: please e-mail me for an appointment Class Time and location: Monday & Wednesday: 10:30-12:18 UH 114 Thursday: 10:30-12:18 MQ 155 We will have audio and video workshops at different times of the day in the ETS computer lab on the third floor of Hopkins Hall. These classes are mandatory. Please make special plans if necessary. We may also change the location of class for impromptu events such as performances etc… with only one-class days warning. For this reason attendance is imperative! Hayes 230 is available for student installation work upon appointment The Work: READINGS: This will be a workshop and critique/discussion based class. We will have a few readings in addition to those from our textbook. These essays or chapters will be rather short; however, it is important that you read each piece thoroughly to facilitate lively class discussions. You are required to write one question on an index card for every reading assignment in this class. If possible please make your question engaging intellectually. No factual questions please (except for the “elements of the shoot” article). Please bring in this question/card to class the day the article is due. Homework in the textbook is due immediately so it is important that you buy the book immediately. ART PROJECTS: 3 projects will be done over the course of the quarter. You are free to choose the content and form of the work yourself. However, these works must fall within the 5 genera covered by this class: video, audio, performance, installation, or interactive arts and your project proposal must be approved by me. All documentation must be digital. These are the acceptable formats- video : mini dv cassette or cd with avi or mov file, stills : cd with jpeg or tiff, audio : cd with wave or aiff file. No analog formats will be acceptable (so no VHS, audio tapes, or photographs). You are welcome to do a live performance as one of your projects however digital video documentation will be due by the end of class. You may also use other digital programs. For example you can use flash but you must have the file converted to an avi or mov before you hand it in. Projects will be done exclusively as homework; at least 10 hours should be spent on each. All projects will be critiqued in class. You will have the opportunity to re-edit or re-work your first and second projects to raise your grade. By the 10 th week of school the final versions of each project will be due along with a short artist statement for each.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
