In 2011 I’m teaching the senior studio courses:
* Electronic Arts Stage 2 BVA
* Electronic Arts Stage 3 BFA and BVA
* Electronic Arts BVA(hons)

I’m going to be teaching these alongside and in conjunction with the Photography classes taught by Rachel Gillies: a chance for us to connect the two disciplines as we anticipate the shifting roles of screen/media/networks/interaction/immersion/narrative and experimentation in all the media we encompass.

The Lab.

In 2008 I established the Electronic Arts section at the Dunedin School of Art. Central to the section is The Lab, an environment where all senior students work alongside each other, share knowledge, collaborate and engage each other’s projects.

The Stand Up

Core to our operations in the lab are weekly standups, where we all present work from last week and anticipate our work for the future week. Stand ups are egalitarian and staff and students present together.

I’m also returning to some teaching in Art History, developing a “twenty-first century Art History” course for stage two.

I’m currently supervising the following MFA projects:

* Ana Terry “island corridors” electronic arts
* Don Hunter “locative media and data visualisation” electronic arts
* Pete Gorman “Oscillator” sound and electronic media
* Jax Reynolds “shelter” intermedia
* Justin Balmain ” fuck you (image)” media arts and painting (COFA, Sydney)
