The Fine Art of Physical Computing (DA4261.01)

Robert Ransick

This course aims to extend our notions of the creative fine art potential of computers by exploring uses beyond standard mouse/keyboard/screen interaction. Moving away from these restrictions the course introduces students to basic electronics and programming an Arduino (microcontroller) to read sensors placed in physical objects or the environment. Projects are designed to provide students with basic skills that can be applied to immersive or interactive creative projects. Idea development is a critical component of this course, along with readings, discussions, and the creation of individual and collaborative projects.
