The 4th dimension in artistic practices is typically seen as the dimension of time as an extension of the traditional three dimensions of height, breadth, and depth. In this course we investigate time through the mediums of video and performance. These explorations are undertaken through a series of projects exploring various concepts and techniques for the purpose of developing a foundation to a relevant, contemporary, artistic practice. The course will offer a broad exposure to contemporary art along with critical dialogue and historical context. Readings will assist in the creation of projects that express cultural perspectives that reflect on both the dominant and marginal media paradigms.
Full-time studies require admission to Yukon College’s Applied Arts Division and SOVA Foundation Year. Part-time students may be admitted upon available space and with approval of the instructor.
