Installation engages in issues of space, site, location, situation, immersive experience, viewer relations, and exhibition design.

Students explore various permutations of installation art, including video, sound, performance, virtual reality and the digital realm, social exchange, collaboration, interactivity and the blurred boundaries between mediums. Students will learn design and fabrication skills while studying the history of site-specific art and its contemporary practice.
