Interactive Art & Design
ARTC331 Interactive Art & Design
Term: Fall, Spring
This course is open to all fine arts and design students seeking an introduction to current developments in new media industries and interested in undertaking digitally-based studio projects progressing from basic to complex. Presentations and assignments explore the expressive potential of emerging forms in technology, media, and communication, and introduce students to both design research and the principal person-machine interaction languages. Students are taught how to design and implement user-centered systems involving the audience and generating interactive narrative paths. Students work primarily with Processing, one of the most frequently utilized open-source software applications for development of generative art—a programming language created to enable designers, artists, and makers to learn how to code within the context of the visual arts.
