Ecomedia Art Practices provides an introduction to a diverse range of media art practices that connect with environmental themes. This course will be of interest to students wishing to actively pursue ecological practices in creative media and to students interested in the convergence of environmental consciousness and ecocriticism with media art practices i.e. the moving image, photography, digital art, sound and installation. The course covers topics such as new forms of media art practice in wildlife and nature documentaries, avant-garde film and ecocinema, global and local place imaging, urban ecology, environmental degradation and conflict in the moving image landscape, and professional practice issues of ethics and sustainability. Students work in small groups on self-initiated art-based projects for peer discussion and class feedback.
