Professor: Scott Kiernan

This class meets THURS 6-9pm in HN 436 TV STUDIO

Full Course Description:

This course will seek to radicalize traditional ideas of the television studio by placing the “control room” front and center as a locus of performance.  Citing examples both past and present in media and contemporary art, expanded cinema, pirate television and more; we will examine artists’ appropriation of, and interventions in, television and broadcast media.  By building on, and then breaking the rules of live television production; our intensive use of the TV studio will dig deeper into experimental and tactile practices such as the design and use of hybrid systems for signal processing. We will also probe how manipulating the vocabulary and distribution of television today can become a site for disruption.  Course work will culminate in a class “mix tape”, synthesizing our collaborative exercises into a work to be aired on Manhattan public television and online.
