(NOT OFFERED IN 2008-2009)
This seminar course explores the emergence of the "digital revolution" in the past decade and how it has altered traditional forms of representation, from illustration and advertising to film and video production. Through an examination of a range of aesthetic and technological responses to digital media by artists and designers, students are introduced to new theories about technology, representation and human experience. Topics covered include: cybernetics, artificial life, dynamic systems, recombinance, networks, virtuality and individual autonomy in digital environments. Assignments, including research, essays and presentations, assist students in extending their own art, design and critical practices.
Notes: Students who previously took ACAD 3B23 may not take this course for further credit.
