Image + Form I

Course No. VAT 200  Credits: 3.0
Faculty Sarah Kabot | William Lorton

Image/Form promotes a general understanding how images work and are developed, which is a fundamental aspect of the Visual Arts. The course introduces the students to the various means by which images can be rendered, such as by drawing, painting, carving, embroidering, etching, etc., as well as by digital means, by appropriation, and by the use of ready-mades. The students are also introduced to the diverse ways in which images and forms can be manipulated, or manifested conceptually and materially by exploring the inter-relation between 2 and 3 dimensions, as well as in time-based media by the use of collage or assemblage. In doing this, we introduce them to the concept that an image's "form," consisting of its physical and spatial qualities, as well as the technical qualities of their chosen mode of production, is part of its content. By these means they are introduced to practical and semiotic nature of images and their production in the context of the contemporary by means of assignments, readings, discussions, and studio critiques. Open as elective to all majors. This course is required for all sophomore students in VATe. Offered fall.
