Integrated Media

 

Philosophy

Integrated Media is a pool of thematic-based electives supported by the Department of Art to provide a broad base of technical and conceptual skills that can be applied to a wide range of creative activities, not specific to one particular discipline. The goal is to provide fluid opportunities for students to explore the integration of technology with the unique elements of other disciplines. Students will utilize practices such as video, web-based work, electronics, time-based media, installation, and community-based design. 

 

Mission

Integrated Media coursework is designed to prepare students to:

• Bridge disciplines in the field of art, art history, and design, and foster cross-fertilization and collaboration among disciplines.
• Create work that exists outside the boundaries of traditional modes of art and design making.
• Work in an environment that includes a diverse faculty that offers focused research within a cross-disciplinary academic community.
• Engage in innovative, experimental, and theoretical coursework that encourages individual development within an interdisciplinary context.

  • ART 1505 The Visual Journal

Directory Profile

Bio:

Yunjin La-mei Woo is a conceptual artist and a cultural-studies researcher who examines what it means to be human or otherwise, especially through the metaphors of contagion. Born as the granddaughter of a Korean shaman, her practice is informed by her research on how images of the infectious, non-human, or supernatural intersect with issues of power, gender, class, and ethnicity. Her work encompasses experimental video, performance, sculpture, installation, writing, and participatory projects.  

 Woo’s work has been extensively exhibited, screened, and collected by diverse venues, including CYNETART (Germany), Female Filmmakers Festival Berlin (Germany), FICAE (Spain), Rabindranath Tagore Centre (India), and Zuckerman Museum of Art (GA, USA). She has also presented her research in conferences across disciplines such as CAA (College Art Association), CSA (Cultural Studies Association), AES (American Ethnological Society) and published in edited volumes such as Endemic: Essays in Contagion Theory (edited by M. Kari Nixon and Lorenzo Servitje, Palgrave Macmillan). As an independent curator, Woo has curated international art events such as Para-Sites Distributed Exhibition Project and Infected Instructions. She earned her BFA and MFA in Sculpture from Seoul National University, South Korea, and is currently working on her PhD dissertation in Communication and Culture at Indiana University, Bloomington, USA. Concurrently, Woo teaches interdisciplinary art as an Assistant Professor of Art at Metropolitan State University of Denver.
