Description: This course explores digital video as a contemporary art medium rich with possibilities of cultural critique. We will examine how artists deploy the speed of time-based media to underscore the urgency of specific environmental issues and offer observations on serous issues through the use of metaphor, irony, and humor. We will compare and contrast these ways through reading, films, and presentations.
