ARST 150 - Introduction to Obsolete New Media

FC ARHU
4 credits
All obsolete media was once new media. This course will dig through technological history to gain a better understanding of how obsolescence impacts the practice, exhibition, and preservation of new media art. This class will include extensive readings from a variety of fields that investigate technology and obsolescence; the class will also view artworks that investigate dead tech and upgrade culture. This is a seminar/studio hybrid class, so students should be prepared to view artwork and read extensively on a weekly basis alongside short studio assignments. Studio assignments will employ expanded drawing/visualization, hacking, and experimental use of obsolete technologies. Field trip(s) required. This course was formerly taught as ARTS 086.

This course is appropriate for new students.
