OBJT 101 Object/Environment

3 credits 90.0 hours
100 level undergraduate course

In this course, students use three-dimensional and digital media to explore issues of object and environment. Ideas of found, fabricated and virtual objects are addressed through the lenses of art, film and design. Inquiry-based research aids students in developing project content, an awareness of cultural and historical contexts, and the ability to analyze their art-making methods and the works of artists, designers and filmmakers. The development of common technical skills, critical skills and a conceptual vocabulary provide a framework for future study. Students apply research to their processes and evaluate their work through writing and critique. The course fosters community through collaborative projects and incorporates at least one visit to an off-campus site.

This course is not repeatable for credit.
