MAPPING AND PLACE
Digital Media Graduate Seminar
Fall 2005, Spring 2008, Fall 2010
This seminar introduces students to mapping as a potential methodology for their own art practice, interpreting and situating their work with a physical and/or virtual context/place. Students interface with the local landscape conducting experiments and interventions with their surroundings as pedestrians and cyclists with the intention of developing strategies that inform their work. This class looks for the connections between students' own work and geography, landscape architecture, critical theory, anthropology, and natural resources.
