Interactive Video (3)
Class Number: 7900
Delivery Method: In Person
An intermediate level investigation of interactivity explored through media, in the context of current display technologies relevant to Interactive Arts and Design. Examines recombinant, computational and compositional structures related to image, sound and video. Students explore video within technologies ranging from cell phones and mobile locative media, and hand held and wearable devices, to 3D immersive virtual and/or networked environments, video art installations, multiple scales of display technology, and responsive spaces. Students will design, produce and critically appraise work.
An investigation of interactivity explored through media, in the context of current display technologies relevant to Interactive Arts and Design. Examines the computational and compositional structures related to image, sound and video, in the context of interactivity. Students explore real-time interaction and representation within a range of display scales ranging from cell phone and tablet to larger scale displays. Students will design, produce and critically appraise works within responsive interactive environments. Project context could vary from mobile locative media to immersive VR spaces.
The course includes the following topics:
History and aesthetics of relevant moving image forms: experimental cinema, video art, video installation, interactive video, and other emergent video forms
History and aesthetics of the role of sound in relationship to the above forms
Creative and technical manipulation of video image and sound, while working in the forms listed above.
Review of the current state of the video screen in current media culture: from large HD projection and flat- panel display to smaller mobile personal screens

SFU’s Academic Integrity web site http://www.sfu.ca/students/academicintegrity.html is filled with information on what is meant by academic dishonesty, where you can find resources to help with your studies and the consequences of cheating. Check out the site for more information and videos that help explain the issues in plain English.
Each student is responsible for his or her conduct as it affects the University community. Academic dishonesty, in whatever form, is ultimately destructive of the values of the University. Furthermore, it is unfair and discouraging to the majority of students who pursue their studies honestly. Scholarly integrity is required of all members of the University. http://www.sfu.ca/policies/gazette/student/s10-01.html
