ART 269  International Center for Photography: Alternative Process Photography  (3 credits)  

Featuring fine-art papers, hand-applied archival emulsions, and simple techniques, historic photographic processes present compelling alternatives to both traditional silver methods and modern digital prints. In this hands-on course, students produce enlarged digital negatives that are used for contact printing in various processes, including cyanotype, van dyke brown, and palladium emulsions. Blending the best of both modern and antique methods, students initially take advantage of working in the digital lab to create new enlarged negatives from original film negatives or slides, prints, and/or digital files. The class then prints these negatives in the traditional wet darkroom to create exciting, unique, handmade prints that will stand the test of time. In addition to technique, this course presents the historical context of these processes. Critiques of student work examine the aesthetic qualities of images rendered through the contemporary application of these time-honored processes. Students are required to provide fine-art paper for printing. All other materials are supplied. In addition to attending all class sessions, students are required to attend three lectures or exhibitions at ICP and write three 2-page double-spaced typewritten response/review papers and turn these in to the Pace ICP Coordinator.

ART 270  ICP: The Power of the Color Image: Exploring Color in and out of the Darkroom  (3 credits)  

Ultimately, the best way to learn to see color in photography is by printing in the color darkroom. This course teaches students how to unleash the power of color in their work by integrating instruction in aesthetics and technique into printing sessions, class critiques, and lectures on color photography. By printing negatives on ICP's automated Kreonite processor, students have an opportunity to learn how color works in a hands-on way that just isn't possible in the digital lab. Many photographers prefer printing from color negative film because of its flexibility, simplicity, and the superb reproduction of both subtle and brilliant colors. Students who move on to digital image making later always find they have an advantage over those who have never made an analog C­ print.

ART 271  Art Meets Science: Interactions and Collaborations  (3 credits)  

This course, Art Meets Science: Interactions & Collaborations is a unique opportunity to explore a multi-disciplinary, collaborative approach for producing art inspired directly and indirectly from the concepts, images, and methods of the sciences. Collaborations between the arts and sciences create new knowledge, processes and innovations relevant to both fields that can help solve complex problems in the world. Collaboration is the practice of individuals working together towards a common purpose to achieve shared goals. Consilience is the principle that evidence from independent, unrelated sources can "converge" to form strong conclusions; that approaching the same problem by different methods should produce the same result. This course includes an exploration of a variety of artistic media and scientific concepts as well as lectures, field work, and community work. By sharing innovations and linking research, art-and-science collaborations can energize action to initiate positive social change and enrich awareness of the world around us, extending ways in which cultures imagine, create and understand
