Installation + The Constructed Object
Course No. VAT 326-426 Credits: 3.0
Faculty Barry Underwood
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 traditional camera formats, digital cameras, advanced 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 will be of special interest to students working in both installation and industrial design. Open to all students.
