RA02. Getting Started & More History

Read Elements and Principles, Chapter 2. Return to the essay on the history of Video Art by Sylvia Martin posted in the “Files” section on Canvas.

  1. Analyze one video from the Sylvia Martin essay (it cannot be the one you used for RA01) using the cheat sheet from Elements and Principles, Chapter 2. You must write at least 1 sentence for each question on the cheat sheet.
  2. Execute the exercise on page 34 in Elements and Principles. Instead of using movies from pop culture, use two videos from the Sylvia Martin essay. Your choices will be limited to those videos that you can download online – it will take some research. You will have to be able to explain your choices to the class (spend some time analyzing the videos you select).
