Intro to Electronic Arts: Coding, Hacks, + Space

Course No. TIM 213-313-413  Credits: 3.0

This course is designed for both the inexperienced and experienced person interested in experimenting with computing to create work that engages, alters or activates a space. The approach for the class will be based on computer enthusiasts’ notion of “hacking”. Hacking in this context is an experimental approach and mode of thinking, taking existing technologies and finding new or extended uses to apply these to. Existing computer scripts will be distributed with instruction and one-on-one guidance on how to alter these to new purposes. People with little or no knowledge of programming will be enabled to create computer based work quickly. Instruction will also cover finding new uses for hardware and creating custom interfaces that allow viewers to experience and interact with art works in a variety of ways. Some possible directions for the work made in this class will be interactive video projection, interactive sound works, expanded gaming environments, video and audio synthesis, circuit bending sound instruments, computer program generated animation and program generated high-resolution still images for large format printing. At the end of the class everyone will have resolved work ready to show.
