Studio Abstract
Mediascapes seeks to merge the discussions of cultural production, science, media, art, architecture, theory and philosophy. It is through media, science and technology that the various spaces, including the “physical” and “virtual” worlds have begun to intermingle in a substantive manner. This performance creates a novel scape, which is the Mediascape. In this course, as researches, thinkers and experimenters, we will explore these paradigm shifts and critically position them in the context of culture, philosophy and theory. Over the course of two terms we will work to create a vocabulary and practice of critically digesting works while applying concepts to new production. This will culminate in a third term thesis based in practice and theory, the two in a constant feedback loop with one another.
