    Using New Media for Practice-based Fine Arts Research in the Classroom

    Electronic Visualisation and the Arts (EVA 2016)

    This paper and demo describes our approach and initial results of using David Hockney’s work as a model for practice-based arts research in a digital imaging class. Hockney’s innovative photo-collages of the 1980sdemonstrate an artist thinking in media, while the Hockney-Falco thesis promotes discussion on the relationship artists have with technology. Using Hockney’s photo-collage work as a practice-based research agenda, we describe a series of class projects to extend his joiner technique into the new dimensions of 3D and interactive media.
