Course Description:
With computers and networked technologies, our culture has been changed. Software enables us to alter our senses and consume information in new ways. How has software affected the visual arts? Why would artists and designers want to write software? This course is an introduction to writing code in the context of visual arts and design. Lectures and demonstrations provide a conceptual, aesthetic and technical foundation in programming as a creative practice. Students explore software art, information visualization, interface design, interactive narratives, and other code-based forms.
