Intermediate Digital Imaging is a second level studio projects course exploring the use of computer technologies for augmenting and expanding creative thought in making visual art. The interplay between the observer, the observed, and the process of observation is explored. Concepts, issues, history/theory and technique are interwoven t
hrough a series of short studies.

Students experiment with raster and vector based imaging, as well as establish practical knowledge of input and output techniques. This leads to a final project which activates public space. Innovation and experimentation are highly encouraged. Students expand their understanding of contemporary digital arts practice through readings, discussions, short lectures, and critiques.

Digital imaging is explored in terms of giving visual form to concepts about surveillance, truth and action in perception, identity, memory, movement and the potency of visualization in personal expression for private and public settings. In all projects the use of sound is encouraged if appropriate.
