Section 37450 | No D-clearance required
Wednesdays | 10:00am-12:50pm | SCI L105
Taught by Professor Pablo Frasconi

“Landscapes were the first human texts, read before the invention of other signs and symbols.”
-Anne Whiston Spirn, Language of Landscape

In IML 458: Designing Digital Landscapes and Languages, student teams will explore the real –and imagined– territories where language and landscape originate, converge and are transformed to create short films, installations, performances, animation, and visual arts. Student teams will include these avatars: BERNINI –a designer of space; FOX - a designer of time and interactivity;  KI - a designer of character; JINN – a designer of the spirit & supernatural.  We will study these topics: the relationship of language to inner and outer exploration; confessional art; odology (the study of roads, journeys, and passages); interactivity & transmedia; and world building.
