Explore innovative means of documenting, interpreting, and presenting the microscopic life of the ocean. Through a series of related projects, students will develop understanding of context and technical expertise, beginning with hands-on gathering of plankton and environmental source materials, developing skill with microscopic technology will learning about plankton as the most basic part of the food chain. The course will culminate in a group installation of individual projects, implementing Augmented Reality as part of the interpretive/documentary process. Open to both fine art and design students. An interest in integrating digital technology into innovative work is more important than actual computer skills, as we will work together to learn necessary technology.
A 3 credit EPSCoR Course.
Taught by Cynthia Beth Rubin + guest lectures from participating EPSCoR scientists and visiting artists
