Image + Form II: Reproducibility
Reproducibility (offered with an emphasis on either 2D or 3D production) introduces the student to the idea that the uniqueness of the work of art is not an intrinsic or inherent quality of the work itself, but the result of the choice of media. Consequently since the Renaissance and the advent of Printmaking, the printing press, and bronze casting, multiplicity and reproduction have been a part of western culture. The machine age, photo-reproduction, lithography, industrial standardization, modularity, fabrication, and multiplicity became part of artistic practice. Prints, posters, ready-mades, objects, books, commix, and designed utilitarian objects editions, multiples, modules, and reproductions are now a significant aspect of contemporary art making which abandons the notion of the unique work Making works of this kind requires the artist to take into consideration the how the act of reproduction, or replication constitutes part their work's form and content. Open as elective to all majors. This course is required for all sophomore students in VATe. Offered spring.
