This unit provides students with a theoretical and technical introduction to digital imaging focusing on art related applications. The unit provides a technical foundation for the use of digital imaging as a vehicle for the visual communication of ideas and content. Students will be introduced to basic procedures for capturing, generating, editing and manipulating images from point of origin to output.
Digital Imaging has the capacity to cross over into many other media platforms and as such hybrid projects that involve photography, performance, sculpture, video, textiles, painting, drawing and ceramics are encouraged with a primary emphasis is on digital image component. Students will be asked to consider the conceptual and aesthetic relationships forged within and across the medium.
