FLEFF LAB: The Microtopia Project
FLEFF LAB: The Microtopia Project was a full-semester, three credit course taught at Ithaca College in conjunction with the Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival. Through a variety of media, including video, sound, and text, students explored different approaches to the microtopia concept. A final project presented their own microtopia that raised questions regarding human genetic engineering.
From the course description:
This course explores the concept of microtopias through a range of theories and practices of emerging technologies, user generated content, sound, music and other structures. Students will engage in group projects that combine conceptual investigations of microtopias with digital interfaces, sound, music, and social media.
