Cinema has changed the way we see and think. Modern visual culture develops with the art of film. Course considers this major 20th century shift in visual perception. We look at "motion" pictures as a product of modernity, born of scientific motion studies, aesthetic and cultural mobility. We relate film to the moving experience of urban space. Key writings and films engage sites of modern movement: home(land) and city, voyage and transport, gender and body.Note: Recommended as preparation for 4351 and 4352.The first meeting of tis class is on Thursday, September 8th at 11:30 AM.

In exceptional cases the final project may be solely based on (expanded in scope and ambition) a theoretical component. A theoretical, written component is required for all final projects. The final project is equivalent to 8 units of courseworkTheoretical/Position component-A written document presenting the original contribution to, and original argument for your artistic/design/research project defended within the context of current discourses in relevant disciplinary fields. The theoretical argument must present the original methodology of the project and position it in relation to:-Relevant present day artistic and design practices and their specific methodologies-Relevant theoretical and critical discourses (including your elaborations on relevant "pro" and "contra" positions)-The relevant historical tradition Practical/Experimental componentThis component involves an original artistic/design project conceived, developed and presented as a public presentation, exhibition, installation, performance, action, and intervention in a physical or/and electronic space. The public presentation is a crucial part of the final project and is required. The Final Project's printed presentation as publishable document (that contains the theoretical argument and a graphic and textual presentation of the practical/experimental component)is also required.
