The development and rise of new forms of electronic media during the 20th century like radio, cinema, and television have irrevocably had a more profound effect on art, design, and culture than any other media past or present. This graduate seminar will explore the significant moments, theoretical foundations, and current trends within electronic media art and cultural practices. We will examine in particular the importance of the computer in the production and inspiration of electronic works and the world wide web as a vehicle for electronic media.
Upon successful completion of this course you will be able to:
- Maintain a greater understanding of history, theories, and issues associated with New Media art and cultural practices.
- Learn a series of technical skills valuable in creating electronic artworks including; the inner workings of a computer, how the internet functions, video and image editing, physical computing, and a programming language.
