Course Description
This introductory course will explore the intersections of art and technology across a wide range of experimental / interdisciplinary practices. Through readings, viewings, group discussion, projects, critiques, and guest artist visits, we will examine a range of technologically mediated art practices, including digital imaging, sonic art, interactive installations, physical / tactile computing, digital writing, computer mediated performance, as well as emergent new media art and research topics.
