We will have 28 face to face sessions of 4 hours each. These sessions alter between lectures, exercises, individual and in-groups discussions, project work and supervision. Week one is introduction, week 2-7 has 3 smaller projects that each last 4 sessions and follow the stucture below:
1. Introductory lecture with examples that refer forward to the assignment the following week and refer ‘backwards’ to the theory of 'Digital Aesthetics'
2. Tool introduction, class room teaching - remixing existing works - individual projects
3. Project - practice - formation of own project based remix - followed by a mandatory hand-in
4. Presentation - group critics
From week 8-14 the students work on their own project and all following sessions are meant to support this process. Towards the end of the course there will be an exhibition and after that we will work on documenting the process and the project.
The last two weeks of the semester are left without meetings so that the students can work on their final essays.
This course is worth 15 ECTS, which is a quarter of the study time. The expected study time is therefore 10 hours a week, four hours scheduled teaching activities plus six hours preparation, reading and writing
• Documentary (group)
• 8-10 page academic essay combining a critical reflection of the final project in relation to aesthetic theory and contemporary creative practice. For group essay 3-5 extra pages per extra student
