Acting as both training camp and laboratory, it is a diverse, multidisciplinary program where unexpected collisions and obsessive attention to detail expose a rich seam of creative potential. Media Studies presents an opportunity to develop individual practice, where students hone their dexterity with established and progressive media, actively testing modes of production through focused acts of doing and making.
SHAPES OF FICTION : VIRTUAL ETYMOLOGIES
CHARLES ARSÈNE-HENRY AND CHRISTOPHER JOHNSON
Wednesdays, 2pm - 5pm
What if you could access a text or a film as one enters an abandoned spaceship ?
In 1897 —
Stéphane Mallarmé discovered the multiverse through the form of a poem — A Throw of the Dice Never Will Abolish Chance
Each of its double pages opening a space of suspense and virtual existence
To approach several facets of this complex object you will conceive a reading device — Metalogue — capable of revealing and reaching its different ontological levels
In other fictions —
A metaphor, a dissolve, a gameplay, the shift in the use of a pronoun, phosphorescence or a slow tracking shot will be examined and drawn as operations.
They will compose the logics of Metalogue — the way it moves within the poem
