Course Description:

This is a course for students who have some experience with creating works in digital media who want to develop personal projects for projections, installations, screen interfaces or the web. Recent platforms for digital media production (e.g. Raspberry Pi, Photon) will be introduced and made available along with software examples. The course provides a studio elective in which students learn to use techniques in digital media to develop more complex projects than time permits in introductory courses.
Students in the course will be guided to develop individual projects (installations, screen interfaces or work for the web) to be completed along with an understanding of the historical and conceptual context for its creation. Weekly workshops in programming and fabrication techniques will be provided to support the artists' process as well as presentations on concepts relevant to the course material (databases, server software, generative art, interactivity etc.)
