ART 161 - Lens-Based: Images & Concepts


Credits: 3 Total Hours: 75
The lens, with its exacting capacity to reproduce the world two dimensionally, has influenced the way we see and navigate the world. This theory-based and hands-on course examines contemporary photography and video production in relation to filmmaking. Students explore basic technical and theoretical aspects of making camera-based images (still or moving). Through lectures, group discussions, demonstrations and practical exercises, students focus on the common ground shared by lens-based, picture-making systems to better understand and further expand the possibilities of photography and filmmaking in the twenty-first century.
