New FS*101 Section! An additional section (Section 44) of FS*101 has been added TTh 3-4:15 with Professor Roland. The topic is Art in the Technoculture.
Description: An exploration of the relationship between technology and the fine arts. Is a camera an art-making tool or an image-recording device? Is art about media or concepts? Must real art be made by hand? Can a machine make art? If art is a reflection of its age, how does art react to the technological culture in which we live? We explore these questions through art projects, readings, art viewings, oral presentations, and discussions. Coursework emphasizes the development of effective oral and written communication skills with a focus on description, summary, and critical thinking.
