Using maps, visual symbols, typography, design and drawing, students in my ARTSVIS 169S : Mapping Self Identity course have created images that explore the use of digital media in combination with the fine art of silkscreen. By applying information gained through tutorial videos made to lead them through this unique intermixing of digital and analog processes, my students have created multiple responses to the concept of self-identity. Student projects included the creation of memory, route, historical, conceptual and contemporary maps, charting family traditions and oral history through mapping, by using these ideas as a point of departure in their creation of works of art. With digital prints, silkscreen prints and an artist book documenting their artistic and conceptual processes being the outcome of their visual discoveries, my presentation will explain their unique analog/digital journey, showing the interaction between these art making approaches and the resulting images.
Using new technology, the Livescribe Pulse Pen, we have developed a series of video captures with voice over that diagrams the steps involved in solving chemistry problems and helps students to see and hear how a wide variety of chemistry problems are solved. This technology can easily be applied to a variety of disciplines, such as mathematics, physics, etc.
