Course Description

This course has two goals. (1) To provide an introduction to writing code within the context of the visual arts. Writing code involves learning a different way of thinking and making. (2) To interrogate the concept of 'interactivity' and consider how this applies to art, design, and code. Through this exploration you may gain a deeper understanding of how users, viewers, and people experience your work. The ideas and skills taught in this course set a foundation for future Design Media Arts courses about the internet, game design, and media arts.
