B. Suber.

Formally titled “technosomakinesics,” this class works to expand the specific aesthetics. Included in the process is the analysis of built environments that both inspire and are designed to be inhabited by these disciplines. This studio course explores the resulting neoperformance forms being created within the range of digital media processing; such as gallery installations, multimedia dance-theatre, personal interactive media (games and digital art) and web projects. Computer-imaging and sound-production programs are examined and used in the class work (human form– animation software [Life Forms], vocal recording and digital editing [Protools and Hyperprism], digital-imaging tools [Photoshop, Final Cut Pro, Flash, Dreamweaver, and Director]. The new context of digital performance raises questions concerning the use of traditional lighting, set, costume, and sound-design techniques that are examined as they are repositioned by digital-translation tools with the goal of creating experimental and/or conceptual multimedia performance and/or installation work. Theoretical texts on dance and theatrical performance, film studies, the dynamic social body, architecture, and digital technology are also used to support conceptual creative work. (AU)
