In this course we will explore historical, political, theoretical, and practical issues in art and image making in the context of digital media and interactive design. We will investigate how the digital transforms different media including photography, the moving image, text, and the interface. In our studio work, you will be introduced to digital manipulation, CGI, hypertext and web coding. Through critical readings, artists’ works and historical case studies we will work to situate the media we are creating in a theoretical, historical and political context. Our ultimate goal will be to develop a working definition of what it means to use digital tools to make art across different media.
