Photographic Innovations With Laser Cutting and Engraving
Re-envision the photographic practice through the integration of laser-engraving and laser-cutting technologies into digital and/or film photography. Students incorporate new media techniques for image-based material experimentation, and explore innovative presentation and installation methods. This hands-on course encourages students to deepen their understanding of the relationship between content, material and output, as well as to discover new approaches to visualizing their ideas. In addition to individualized production, students gain an understanding of how to create unique two- and three-dimensional images and photo-sculptural objects through demonstrations, presentations and class discussions.
