In this timeline we present the artistic endeavors of some of our students as created in the context of our course Intermediality. The first assignment we want to showcase here (more will follow later) is called Ekphrasis. After a guest lecture by painter Joost de Jonge, students were asked to formulate a creative response to a video by Ira Schneider. I introduce the concept of Ekphrasis here and place it in the context of intermediality theory, and set out the specifics of this assignment. You find the video by Schneider below, as well as the top three of creative texts, which will be published in an art book by De Jonge. This is an example of what we do in Online Culture's track Art in the Public Sphere.
