Students will create an installation individually that comprehensively employs one or more techniques or concepts studied in the course. Combine these techniques with research on your chosen topic and artist references.  Students may look outside the realm of what has been discussed in the class to enhance their project if there is a technique, technology or area of research that interests them and incorporate that into their final project.

The installation must include projection mapping in some way. This project is open to performance, interactivity, and site specific works (upon discussion).

Finally, the installation needs to be fitted for prolonged existence in an exhibition space, technologically viable for gallery exhibition, easy to use in the setting of a gallery setting for over 5 weeks of continuous use. Instructions for a “gallery” must be written and posted with your artist statement, these will include how to install, power, start up and turn off. How would your piece exist long-term in a space that you cannot oversee?

Critique will be Friday Dec 14th 10am – 2pm. You will be able to choose from installing in the Blackbox, 126 (our classroom), 132, and 230.
