Senior Capstone Project
Instructor: Curt Cloninger / curt at lab404 dot com
NM 438 is a capstone project for seniors. Students design, develop, and implement a long-term collaborative art project in media of their choosing that demonstrates in-depth understanding (both conceptually and technically) of new media. Prerequisite: NM 222; one course from NM 310, 320 or 350.
Throughout the project's development, emphasis will be placed on the creative process itself. Students will be evaluated on their ability to: 1. execute, document, evaluate, and justify their decisions at given stages of the creative process; 2. give, receive, and act upon peer critique.
Additionally, students will be introduced to concepts in new media art; to historically accepted creative processes; and to various strategies, tools, templates, paradigms, and work habits used by leading artists and designers. Research, written response, and class discussion will supplement the major project development process.
The project phases and other assignments required in this class are time-intensive and require an average of 9 hours per week on the computer, either in a campus lab or on your own computer that contains the software used in the class.
