Teaching Interests

The Film/Video courses focus on the representation of time in contemporary video art and experimental film. They examine how the moving image aligns and differentiates itself from the other artistic disciplines and from cinema--and how artworks activate curatorial spaces for spectatorship. Instruction centers on producing and editing videos with unique consideration of time and narrative. Upper-level courses further expand definitions of time-based art--including sound art, media installation, performance, participatory forms and social practice.
