Transmedia Art, Extraction, and Environment

Traces the contingent geological, material, community, and toxic histories of extracted materials used throughout our built environment, as well as civic resistance and reform that could alter extraction practices. Scaffolded workshops with artists and media producers support students’ production of creative documentary and other media projects. Students taking graduate version complete additional assignments.
