Video and the Human Experience – Amy Conger
Too much of multi-media art becomes an isolated experience of watching a screen — an experience as unsatisfying as watching TV. In this class students will engage in a relational approach to video art as a way of connecting to and experiencing our own humanity. What surprises and delights may be ours when we find media art bringing us together, rather than isolating us from one another? For beginning and Intermediate levels. Amy is an artist, teacher and changeworker whose sole aim in life is to talk with you.
