Documenting Culture

Posted by Emily Zeamer on April 26, 2013

This course was taught in 2012-13 in collaboration with the Fowler Museum of Cultural History and the Department of World Arts and Cultures at UCLA.

The first half of the 2-quarter course involved UCLA students in field research with LA-based artists and creative communities, to create digital documentary works using Vimeo, Zeega, and other tools, for public exhibition via the website www.documentingculture.com. In the second quarter, students continued fieldwork, creating a short documentary film based on their subject
