ART 221 LH - Visual Culture of Fandoms
The course will involve writing and art making as two modes of interpretation and response to mediated imagery. We will consider the idea that students may become so closely entwined with their own fandoms that it affects their sense of self, personal/societal relationships, and memory. We will also focus on the importance of imagination in creating/sustaining fandoms and fan art. The framework of this course will be supported by academic literature on fandoms as well as visual methodologies. Students will briefly learn about elements and principles of design; the codes and conventions that structure the image; the viewers and how they interpret or experience the image; and the contexts in which an image is exhibited and viewed.
