This course is a senior capstone course in which a student produces a defining work and writes a position paper on that work. Student work will be independently produced with formal and conceptual significance and technical control. The student will receive post-production criticism. The student will install a cohesive exhibition of their works, including the Thesis work, and present a paper and images of their work to the department. The student will develop an electronic presentation of the evolution of western art using images from prehistory - modernism, and include a selection of works supporting the student's core sensibility.
