The Practicum provides a series of workshops in core techniques, methods, and technologies. Topics range from introductions to programming, understanding color profiles, basics of circuits and control devices, understanding networks, fundamentals of HD file formats, studio lighting, large format techniques, and so forth. Taught with artistic work in mind, these core areas are vital in understanding how essential technical knowledge can serve the production, dissemination, and conceptualization of artwork which can be approached with working skill sets in areas that ground many practices in photographic and media art. Topics will be presented to demonstrate the usefulness and benefits of taking control of systems. Enrollment Requirements: Prerequisite: PH 5576Co-Requisite: PH 6500.
