Expanded Media is an interdisciplinary approach to art making that includes, but is not limited to, video, sound, socially engaged projects, performance, and site-specific projects. Students are not required to concentrate in a specific medium. Instead, they are encouraged to pursue unconventional research paths and explore relationships between concept, material, and context in unexpected ways. Students develop their sensibilities through readings, technical workshops, and critiques while learning to contextualize their work historically, theoretically, and culturally. The goal of the Expanded Media area is to foster independent creative thinkers with diverse skill sets and unique work methodologies.
