AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The aim of this module is to provide students with the following skills: 1) How technology can enhance transmission modes and languages of cultural heritage; 2) How emerging forms of hermeneutic mediation reach intellectual understanding by passing through the immediacy of the affective gesture and from emotional knowledge; 3) How new tools orientate the experience of the products of our artistic history in order to re-appropriate and share it; 4) How the comparison of artistic artefacts and virtual/mixed reality projections manipulated in models of active can define strategies for reactivating audiovisual content.

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

To offer the student the ability to appreciate the values of artistic language and the ways in which artistic products operate in capturing the observer's attention and involving him/her in the space of representation. To make the student understand how the artistic image, which transforms over time with the use of different media, maintains its effectiveness in the organisation of a virtual space, where forms and contents converge in the communicative hypothesis, where involvement is stimulated by empathic formulas, shared cultural memes, rhetorical codes, but equally by signs, iconic and aniconic, colours, gestures. Stimulating a critical awareness in comparison with the visual culture of current events.

In-person and synchronous distance learning with projection of images and multimedia teaching material
