QUALIFICATIONS:

We are seeking an artist who has both strong teaching experience and an active exhibition record in digital video and/or 3D imaging, preferably both. Candidates must have an MFA or equivalent terminal degree. This position will be integral to a new interdisciplinary program in creative practice that is being developed; therefore it is essential that candidates be enthusiastic about pursuing interdisciplinary approaches to making art and an active engagement with art theory and criticism.

RESPONSIBILITIES:
The teaching load is three courses per semester and advising students while they work on Senior Projects.

The candidate will also be expected to help develop interdisciplinary courses that contribute to the mission of our new cross-disciplinary program in creative practice and research. Secondary topics would be based on the candidate's expertise in areas such as: Studio Arts, Art History, Visual Studies, Creative Writing and Theatre.

THE DEPARTMENT:
The Digital Arts program (http://www.stetson.edu/diga) was founded in 1996 and brings together faculty and resources from the disciplines of art, computer science and music, because we believe the computer makes it easier for artists to move between media and collaborate across specialties.

SALARY:
Salary is budgeted at the rank of junior faculty.

STARTING DATE:

August 2012.

Transmission: A Mobile Collective, Puts Art on Wheels

The tactics for making and disseminating art are expected to receive comprehensive review during ArtBasel/Miami Beach and its smaller attendant art fairs. Only one showcase, however, will truly embody the flickering, mobile texture of life here in Miami, the host city.

Transmission, the brainchild of Miami artist Judith Robertson, marries the ethereal, high-tech projection of video to the decidedly more low-tech welded steel chassis of a truck. The interior of the truck, converted to an over-sized projector, will trawl the streets of Miami from December 3rd to 6th, park itself amidst the revelry of ArtBasel, and provide rotating projections to the public a la tailgate. Robertson is joined by Dimitry Said Chamy, Elizabeth Hall and Matt Roberts.

An artist long involved in the development of direct delivery systems for visual art, Robertson puts it like this: 'Transmission discards the limitations placed on artists by conventional art venues. We
