Installation Art is based on the merger of Space and Time and on a relationship between the artist and the visitor. Utilizing their interests and abilities in a variety of subjects and media, students create environments that immerse the viewer in a sensory/ intellectual/ emotional experience. The material and methods used can range from everyday objects, to highly personalized forms, from appropriated sounds to surveillance video, from large wall drawings to interactive switches for the participant to manipulate. They can involve found materials or purchased materials. The class consists of thematic presentations by the professor, demonstrations of skills particularly useful in installation (sculptural, video, audio, interactive media, graphic presentation etc), student research and reports and journal entries, weekly critiques, one small and one larger project with an exhibition at the end of the semester.
