This class will give a broad overview of the various
issues confronting designers and media artists today. We will look
at historical background of the current situation and how people
in the arts and industry commented or participated actively. One
day a week will be spent in lecture and discussion and the second
working on weekly projects. A number of field trips related to the
subject are planned.
FINAL ASSIGNMENT: 25%
ATTENDANCE AND PARTICIPATION: 25%
assignments will add up to a portfolio that will be your final submission.
At the end you will have an oppportunity to redo your earlier assignments.
Each assignment is graded by the following criteria: 1. how
well you follow the theme and directions.
2. if it is submitted in time.
The final grade will take into consideration all the previous grades,
your attendance and participation.
missed without a formal reason (doctor's note, family emergency,
etc.) will cause the student's grade to be lowered 1/2 step. If
a student's grade is borderline at the end of the quarter, class
participation will be taken into account, and will likely move the
student's grade back up to the next higher category. Coming late
to class interrupts everyone and you will miss out. We move fast
and you can easily fall behind.
