This module introduces a theoretical and practical context for contemporary digital media practice. It explores the history of digital media highlighting connections between pre-digital technologies and contemporary media forms. Practical workshops and field trip provide a critical context for your work.
Working individually, choose a sphere of online network culture that uses video to communicate ideas. Collect materials that exemplify the way in which this community or genre uses online video and edit together a clip compilation that explores their use of online video.
Working individually create a radiophonic sound work that responds to one of the pieces of class reading material. Select one idea from your chosen reading to explore through sound. The work should be long enough to make a good job of this and you should provide a few sentences to introduce the piece that support your thinking and approach.
