Course Title: Time

Where Course is Being Offered: Parsons First Year Program

Semester Being Offered: Spring 2014

Course Description: This course is an introduction to the cultural and perceptual constructions of time. Learning to work with time involves more than editing video and sound into linear sequences. It entails the consideration of time as a designed idea that can function as a tool to understand how objects can function, environments can be perceived, and experiences can be shared.  Studio projects, readings, writing, and examples of many artists’ work are used to examine how ideas such as frame, duration, and speed have evolved to impact our understanding of time. A variety of methods and media, from digital video, to drawing, to performance, are used to explore and represent different cross disciplinary notions of time found in the fields of art, design, science, and industry.  Students will leave the course with a basic knowledge of creating digital sequential layouts and audio-visual sequences.

Requirements: TAs should be proficient in Adobe Premier and Adobe InDesign. Minimum GPA of 3.4
