Gr. 10 Media Arts – ASM 2O1

Woorim Kim

Media arts incorporates materials, practices, tools, and skills from a variety of arts disciplines including dance, drama, music, and visual arts. Its elements are also drawn from contributing arts: for example, line, colour, and texture from visual arts; space, time, and energy from dance; rhythm (duration), harmony (pitch), and dynamics from music; and character, place, and tension from dramatic arts. The technologies and processes used and adapted to create media art may be traditional, including, but not limited to, photography, film, photocopy art, analog and electro-acoustic sound, classical animation, and video/television. The technologies and processes may also be digital: computer software, digital imaging and graphics, digital sound recording and sonic sculpture, two- and three-dimensional animation, multimedia production, holography, and web page design.
