my Graduate Seminar next semester
next semester (SPRING 2009) i am teaching a Graduate Seminar on the topic of experimental Media Art Histories
as filtered through Chronophobia (both the book Chronophobia: On Time in the Art of the 1960's
by Pamela M. Lee
+ the condition which is the fear of the duration or immensity of time). in particular we will compare these issues with their manifestations in New Media Art, particularly Art Games. to do this we will read from Game Studies + Game Theory the ways in which time plays out in games. time in games is often measured against the threat of one's own "imminent symbolic death" in the game. this will be the conceptual framework for our readings, screenings + discussions.
