Thursday, 3 August, 9:30 - 10 am
Room 156

A theoretical and experimental investigation of the fundamentals of time-based design. This paper promotes discussion of a dynamic visual language that could be used in various disciplines involved with the creative process of image-making in a dynamic medium. Time-based projects, whether for communicating information or for artistic purposes, rely on understanding and exploration of the core principles of dynamic formations. This paper introduces the theoretical framework while presenting a series of interactive experiments and short movies developed with the purpose of analyzing the theory. It includes student work that reflects the learning process in time-based design courses.
