PHOT-678 Comedy As Artistic Strategy

3 Credits

This course studio course is structured around the tropes of comedic aesthetics: Stand-up, slapstick, situations, puns, pratfalls, and pity. Artists will integrate this mode of thinking into their existing studio production. Taking aesthetic and thematic cues from comedians and funny situations rather than from a specific artistic medium or technique, students will utilize photographs, video, audio, diagrams, performance, and sculptural props to create and document new artworks that are informed by the aesthetics and practices of humor.
