In galleries and museums throughout New York City we see the formal aspects of film (cinematography, story, editing) translated into video installation. Cinematic installation adheres to a high level of filmmaking, yet works with new media elements and demonstrates original narrative design and incorporation of the physical space. The work of artists such as John Akomfrah and Diana Thater will be viewed and discussed, and guests speakers will visit the class to talk about their work in this field. We will explore methodologies of working with multiple projections using programs such as MultiScreener and VDMX as well as a variety of audio systems. The class will develop and execute a collaborative multi-channel installation, which will be shown at Loisaida, Inc.
