Experimental Intermedia Arts Minor
The study of intermedia arts combines the traditional artistic disciplines of music, dance, theater and the visual arts with creative writing and emerging media art forms such as video, film, computer-assisted multimedia and the electronic arts. Intermedia arts studies allow students to probe more deeply into the nature of their own creativity and to discover how their skills, knowledge and character might be applied to develop scholarly or creative intermedia projects. Perspectives gained through the study and practices of experimental intermedia arts can offer a range of benefits to students from the acquisition of enhanced personal creativity and self-confidence to a professional portfolio of performances and creative work.
Students in the experimental intermedia arts are able to engage materials, ideas and situations from personal perspectives and form them into original intermedia art works. They study the theories, techniques and development of the intermedia arts through historical examination of an assortment of sources from documentary to original intermedia productions, exhibitions and performances.
