Tele-Reality: Live-Streaming Art


This course examines the field of live-feed media through the lens of art practice, exploring previous experiments and the potential of the medium. Using social media outlets and user-to-user communication platforms¿such as Youtube, FaceTime, Twitch, Instagram, and closed-circuit cameras¿students will create moments for captive audiences using displacement as a medium. By nature, live streaming is a fleeting digital performance that combines television, theater, and film practices with internet platforms and physical venues to present single performances or series of performances, pre-recorded footage, or improvisational scenes. nnLive-streaming opens an opportunity for borderless expression, to express social change, to share non-mainstream messages, and allows access to massive communication to diverse voices and perspectives.
