Choose one sound or video artist from the list below. Research the artist’s work and record an engaging, informative, image-based 8-12 minute video presentation. The majority of the presentation should be about the artist’s sound, video, or performance work and the main ideas the work addresses, but you may include one slide about the artist’s bio if relevant. Become an expert. Include a video/sound clip in your presentation (up to two minutes). Please include a bibliography slide at the end of the presentation with a minimum of 10 sources (print and online sources).
