Creative explorations

As we move through the semester, we will study several ways that amateur and professional creators have explored issues of media and identity: by remixing existing media, by creating their own media in the form of zines and games, and by designing interactive experiences for the public to engage with.

After we study examples each technique, seeking to understand how and why its creators made meaning in the way that they did, you will experiment with using this technique for yourself.

These exercises are designed to give you a low-stakes opportunity to play around with techniques you may decide to pursue in your capstone project. For your final project in this class, you will develop one of your creative explorations more fully.
