Närmare beskrivning av kursens innehåll (gäller denna kursomgång): 

Learning objectives: Using three case studies, participants learn about systems-oriented design frameworks to digital media design that can be used when developing your own art and design productions. MA, DA candidates are welcome. 

Methods used:  In the course we will use Case Studies and speculative design interventions that address the relevance of Time, Body and Space across cultures and contexts.

Lecture/presentation 1: What is representation? What is a system? Why are these so important in media design? 30/01 (LDK)

Lecture/presentation 2: What is an ontology? Why it is relevant to media design? 06/02 (UP)

Case study 1: Time and its representation in narrative. 13/02 (LDK) 

Time: Time and its representation in narrative. Using mixed methods and content materials from anthropology, history and media archeology, research and analyze how the representation of time is constructed differently in genres and narratives across different cultures and epochs. 13/02 (LDK). The role of archives in the creation of art and design discourses. (SK, MS, TÖ) NOTE: This session will be held at the ARTS Archives facilities in the Learning Centre.

Presentations of initial concept work done by participants Case Study 1: The representation of time in narrative. 27/02 (LDK) 

Case study 2:  Exhibiting the body 

The body: 06/03 (SP) Costume exhibition is developed as a system. Using a multimethod approach, we bring together archive materials with intangible testimony to create a record and out of this create a system/representation. Key questions include, How is the body represented? How do you relate this to the visitor?

Presentations of initial concept work done in Case Study 2 by participants: The representation of body in exhibition. 20/03 (SP) 

Case Study 3: Space and digital media

Case study 3: Space. 03/04 (LDK) Using mixed methods we explore digital media’s use to augment and extend our sense of space and experience in exhibition spaces. A series of case studies from real world examples are presented.

Presentations of initial concept work done Case Study 3 by participants. 17/04 (LDK)

Refining individual concepts and putting it all together: Design Critique session. 24/04. (LDK, UP)
