Installation + The Constructed Object

Course No. VAT 226-326-426  Credits: 3.0

This course is a special topic course designed to cover the design, construction and lighting of installations, stage sets, and performance spaces. Students will investigate contemporary applications and approaches to subjects specifically composed for the camera and document installations that exist outside of the studio environment, with an emphasis on the genre’s relationship to historical and contemporary theatre. Workshops include cameras, studio lighting, basic electricity and carpentry, with an emphasis on scenery design. Students will plan and create small-scale models of stage designs; scale-up these designs, and document their design. This course is designed for the Photography major and any students working in installation or industrial design but is open to all majors. This course is cross-listed with Visual Arts. Open studio elective.
