Fakes: Digital Documentary and the Animation of ‘Truth’
Teaching Artist: Benj Gerdes
Experiments in simulation, forgery and dishonest documentary provided a basis for a class dialogue around ethics and the concept of truth in our contemporary political moment, alongside reconsiderations of the relationship of sound, image, and text in critical art practices.
Teaching Artist: Federico Muelas
Students worked with Basic Stamp microcontrollers, commonly used sensors (light, motion, heat, touch, etc), and basic physical computing to control “hacked” old and/or out of order devices such us VCRs, slide projectors, computers, and electronic toys. The 'recycled' equipment was re-engineered to develop a series of projects which comprise a visitor-driven interactive installation.
