Teaching Assistant, SP23, FA22, SP20, FA19 (In-person)

This course is an intensive seminar on the theory and history of media and mediation, surveying texts and media artifacts, both historical and contemporary, with an emphasis on critical understandings of media production and reception as it is experienced in the 21st century in art and everyday interactions. The work produced in this class cultivates an eye toward critical research and encourages new understandings of the relation between theory and practice, method and example. A research seminar that spans media practices, from cinema to sound art and from video games to television, this course teaches students how to pursue media-related research in a historical context to become competent critical analysts.

CMDP 3600 Creative Media Making
Instructor, SP22 (In-person)
University of Colorado Boulder

 "Creative Media Making" focuses on investigating and constructing individual practices as a creative endeavor. Contemporary media are fluid and unrestrictive, allowing for infinite combinations and myriad applications. This can be daunting for students whose practice is just beginning. Through projects requiring a multivariate approach with relaxed guidelines, students explore their own interests and technical predispositions in the contexts of documentary media, sound practices, and performance media.  Work in the class focussed on developing long-term thinking in terms of media practice.

The course encourages students to extend their current practice (whatever that may be) with community-engaged media, networked art and performance, curating, and media activism.  Students had their collective work shown at the B.E.A.T exhibition at the Museum of Boulder!
