Digital Utopia

3 credits

Nirvana. Heaven. Bliss — Utopia. This course is informed by the unbounded concept of “Utopia”. Utopia is a term meaning a heavily idealized or imagined perfect society, most often characterized by social, political, and economic ideals that are often unrealistic. While hypothetical, the concept of Utopia is important because it allows us to explore possibilities and strive for a better future. Students will be introduced to software that aids pre and post production workflows to produce video, projection, music and sonic art. Through workshops, discussion, trips, screenings and studio work, students in Digital Utopia will provide students with a firm understanding of producing and utilizing audio/visual assets in relation to each other and site specific space.
