Unit 9 Assignment
In the Unit 9 Assignment, you will investigate how creative expressions can broaden your perspective. You will do this by reflection on the impact that television and video art had upon a person. You may write about your own experiences, or you may interview a friend or family member. In either case, you should remain focused on the objective of evaluating and demonstrating how a point of view is changed through the influence of television and video art.
The television programs in this Assignment could have been viewed on a traditional television set, but they could also be from an internet series, streaming on a smartphone, or viewed through another medium. While movies are often shown on television, for this Assignment, you will want to look into television programs or series in particular. Please check with your instructor if you have a question about programming that may suit the Assignment.
