Academic Advising: What is Academic Advising?
Above: REpresenting: The Art of Documenting Art. A new video series.
Forms of documentation inevitably mediate the work of art, after the fact.
Through interviews and case studies with SAIC faculty and students, this series of videos addresses fundamental questions about the documentation of art.
- How does the document change the experience of the work of art?
- Is documentation just editing the work of art or something more fundamental?
- How does the involvement of photographers, and videographers affect the transformation of the work through documentation?
- When and how does the document become its own work of art, separate from the original piece?
Watch the videos on Vimeo or checkout the DVDs from the Flaxman Library.
