Technified Art, Rachelle Viader Knowles

An interdisciplinary art practice incorporates a variety of media in its conception and production, crossing, combining or hybridizing art disciplines in its expression. This includes a variety of new and traditional media – video, installation, print technologies, photography, performance, painting and digital technologies – in combination with critical writing and curatorial aspects of professional practice unique to contemporary art.

First Day

Dr Rebecca Caines, the teacher for this course, has a beautiful Australian accent. She introduced the course as a possible entry course for a new degree program to be added to the Fine Arts department in Creative Technologies. The course counselor mentioned this future option too but my mind was still irritated that the music program courses were all full. It was also suggested that such a degree course could take a lot of courses in computer technologies as part of the degree. Now I am very seriously looking to go that route. A survey of what sort of educational goals and interests of the students revealed they were very kindred spirits. Mixing art and geek was not only common but embraced by my fellow students. Rebecca told of her history in creative technology and I was surprised that music styles like hiphop and dubstep were central. I never really followed electronic music beyond Brian Eno so really was unaware of how much of a social impact the movements behind these styles had on people. I was also unaware of the role of technology in moving these styles from the rich to the poor to bring a sense of empowerment and freedom. My whole life has been a driven striving for the tools to create freedom and a voice for the unheard oppressed.

Change of Plans

It took forever to get transferred from U of R Science department to Luther Collage Fine Arts department... now all the courses I wanted to take are full. The course counselor suggested a new course "Introduction to Creative Technologies" and "The Art of Motion Pictures" and they seem to work together. I am also required to take the Fine Arts version of English 100 called "Academic Discourse." This counts as a full time student and should be an easier entry back into university after being away from studies for a few years.

Duel Degrees

What I really want to do is make films, make music, and study the social lives of animals... those are all things you would learn in a fine arts degree. I still need all those science courses to make unique technologies for my unique creative endeavors. Can I bake my cake and decorate it too? I think music is the most difficult thing for me to master as a career without a piece of paper saying I am a musician. Sure I can play beautiful music but people with money to invest don't know if it is good music or not. Duel degrees have lots of cross-over courses making for a much more impressive resume with a lot less extra work.
