ART 248 - Word & Photographic Image


In this workshop, students explore artist and writer William S. Burroughs’ “Third Mind” practices. By working with two or more mediums, visual media and language, he created a new third state of mind and creative expression. Students explore how playing with language impacts both the photographic process and their creative expression. A series of creative visual assignments, presentations, and independent projects encourage students to develop aesthetic and conceptual thinking, become acquainted with contemporary photographers, evolve their own individual photographic styles, and build technical expertise. ART 212 or instructor permission; prior completion or concurrent enrollment in ENGL 100 and RDNG 116 if required by placement testing. 3 Cr. (2 Lec., 2 Lab.) Occasionally.
