DIG 2500

Fundamentals of Interactive Design (4)

Prerequisite: DIG 2109C

Classification: Parallel

This class explores the history, theory and practice of Web-based and interactive art. The Internet has become a part of our everyday lives and has presented us with a wide array of new tools to develop and share creative content. We will utilize the tools of Web and videogame design to create experimental interactive art works that create unique aesthetic/conceptual experiences for the user. We will investigate the roles played by artists in networked environments and the manner in which their work has created new ways of thinking about interactivity. Students combine audio, video, imaging, animation and other media to build an interactive product using industry-standard software.
